Granted, I was not a big fan of that movie, but the basic plot is pretty similar Both the H h were playing each other Like the movie, we know how it all ends, but unlike the movie, the actual story itself is actually entertaining Seeing these two fight their feelings made this book hard to put downChallenge accepted, boys, I say, resting my arms behind my head One month from now, Maddie Stevens will be in love with me and in my bed You can count on that shit Braden Braden will do anything to get Maddie into his bed He wants her Badly Even desperate enough to make a wager with his friends To get Maddie to fall in love with him, get in her knickers and dump her It s a done deal, right I mean no woman can resist such a player Braden can be such an asshat However, Maddie has her own plans Braden personifies everything Maddie hates He s arrogant, smug and a big time womanizer She left all that behind when she moved from Brooklyn to Berkeley When her friends come up with a plan to teach the infamous Braden a lesson, to be humped and dumped, Maddie reluctantly agrees Her mission To get Braden to fall in love with her, sleep with him, then dump him all within a month.What these two didn t plan was actually falling for each other Oh trust me, they fought their feelings with all their might, but you knew what was going to happen But when both find out each other s motives, can their fake relationship surviveI m not possessive over you, Maddie, he says into my ear I m protective, and there s a difference I d never try to control you or tell you what you can and can t do, but I know every guy i this frat house wants to be me right now And you know why It s because you re so fucking beautiful My breath catches in my throat They all want you, but I have you, and there s not a chance I m gonna risk one of them taking you from me, all right So yes, Angel, yes, you are fucking mineAnd there it is The main reason why I enjoyed this book Possessive and jealous Braden You guys know how much I love these types of Heroes Now don t get your panties in a twist, Braden isn t really over the top, but it was just enough to quench my appetite However, there were a few drawbacks to this story One, the constant repetitiveness No, I can t feel this way This is starting to feel likethan a bet I m scared of my feelings I m developing so on and so forth Second, I kinda wantedof an ending The story just ended a little too abruptly An actual epilogue would ve been nice So there you have it Aside from those two negatives, the story is pretty good and it was hard to pass up Enjoy

    Items ticked off 20Why I still YES, STILL hate New Adult, part 4 She s not hot enough to bang though, so she won t be around for that long. Because in New Adult, we separate the main female characters from other female characters by categorizing them as bangableIf I m gonna play this guy at his own game and make him fall in love with me, he s gonna respect me while he does it And that, honey, is why you are the perfect girl for the jobBecause in New Adult, Items ticked off 20Why I still YES, STILL hate New Adult, part 4 She s not hot enough to bang though, so she won t be around for that long.

Because in New Adult, if a woman who is not the heroine shows any interest in the hero, she is devoid of human emotions and thus not worth treating with respectThe fact I nearly punched him in the face Why would I think any differently Isn t that what you re supposed to doBecause in New Adult, violence is encouraged And in this case, if a man tells the truth, he deserves a punching, apparentlyAngel, it s only because I know you re not like most girlsBecause in New Adult, you re expected to love a hero that looks down on the women he sleeps inDon t fuck with me, Braden Not today I m not gonna sit here and deal with a bunch of fake boobed whores coming up to me and telling me how I m not your usual typeBecause in New Adult, the heroine slutshames the women that used to sleep with the hero.And some other reasons for disliking this bookStereotyping of bisexuality Some truly disturbing conversations A predictable plot The book is in dire need of editing The hero The heroine All their friends.I think that s it

Granted, I was not a big fan of that movie, but the basic plot is pretty similar Both the H h were playing each other Like the movie, we know how it all ends, but unlike the movie, the actual story itself is actually entertaining Seeing these two fight their feelings made this book hard to put downChallenge accepted, boys, I say, resting my arms behind my head One month from now, Maddie Stevens will be in love with me and in my bed You can count on that shit Braden Braden will do anything to get Maddie into his bed He wants her Badly Even desperate enough to make a wager with his friends To get Maddie to fall in love with him, get in her knickers and dump her It s a done deal, right I mean no woman can resist such a player Braden can be such an asshat However, Maddie has her own plans Braden personifies everything Maddie hates He s arrogant, smug and a big time womanizer She left all that behind when she moved from Brooklyn to Berkeley When her friends come up with a plan to teach the infamous Braden a lesson, to be humped and dumped, Maddie reluctantly agrees Her mission To get Braden to fall in love with her, sleep with him, then dump him all within a month.What these two didn t plan was actually falling for each other Oh trust me, they fought their feelings with all their might, but you knew what was going to happen But when both find out each other s motives, can their fake relationship surviveI m not possessive over you, Maddie, he says into my ear I m protective, and there s a difference I d never try to control you or tell you what you can and can t do, but I know every guy i this frat house wants to be me right now And you know why It s because you re so fucking beautiful My breath catches in my throat They all want you, but I have you, and there s not a chance I m gonna risk one of them taking you from me, all right So yes, Angel, yes, you are fucking mineAnd there it is The main reason why I enjoyed this book Possessive and jealous Braden You guys know how much I love these types of Heroes Now don t get your panties in a twist, Braden isn t really over the top, but it was just enough to quench my appetite However, there were a few drawbacks to this story One, the constant repetitiveness No, I can t feel this way This is starting to feel likethan a bet I m scared of my feelings I m developing so on and so forth Second, I kinda wantedof an ending The story just ended a little too abruptly An actual epilogue would ve been nice So there you have it Aside from those two negatives, the story is pretty good and it was hard to pass up Enjoy

    Items ticked off 20Why I still YES, STILL hate New Adult, part 4 She s not hot enough to bang though, so she won t be around for that long. Because in New Adult, we separate the main female characters from other female characters by categorizing them as bangableIf I m gonna play this guy at his own game and make him fall in love with me, he s gonna respect me while he does it And that, honey, is why you are the perfect girl for the jobBecause in New Adult, Items ticked off 20Why I still YES, STILL hate New Adult, part 4 She s not hot enough to bang though, so she won t be around for that long.

Because in New Adult, if a woman who is not the heroine shows any interest in the hero, she is devoid of human emotions and thus not worth treating with respectThe fact I nearly punched him in the face Why would I think any differently Isn t that what you re supposed to doBecause in New Adult, violence is encouraged And in this case, if a man tells the truth, he deserves a punching, apparentlyAngel, it s only because I know you re not like most girlsBecause in New Adult, you re expected to love a hero that looks down on the women he sleeps inDon t fuck with me, Braden Not today I m not gonna sit here and deal with a bunch of fake boobed whores coming up to me and telling me how I m not your usual typeBecause in New Adult, the heroine slutshames the women that used to sleep with the hero.And some other reasons for disliking this bookStereotyping of bisexuality Some truly disturbing conversations A predictable plot The book is in dire need of editing The hero The heroine All their friends.I think that s it
