RELEASE DAY BLITZ AND REVIEW - RESENTMENT BY NICOLE LONDON
Author: Nicole London
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 29, 2015
The act of hating – no, fucking loathing Dean Collins. (Yes, I’m well aware that’s not the actual definition, but it might as well be...)
It’s been ten years since we've seen each other and the feelings are still as strong.
I’m not going to bore you with all the details of how our love was once intoxicating, consuming, and perfect.
Because it was . . . until it wasn't.
I've been fine without him. I haven’t missed his cruelty, his coldness and his spite.
And after the ugliest breakup in the history of breakups, I forced myself to move on.
Year by year, the feelings I had for him slowly drifted away, but one encounter with him recently changed everything. One encounter made me realize how the heart doesn't forget shit, and how my mind is going to have to work overtime to make sure I never forget my definition of resentment.
“Are you coming to the pep rally tonight?” he asks.
“School spirit isn’t really my thing. No offense, but…football isn’t either.”
He laughs, and I suddenly realize that the two of us have never talked about football during our sessions together. In fact, whenever I’ve brought it up, he’s changed the subject to something else.
“Well,” he says, letting my hand go. “You should come for me instead.”
“What? What do you mean?”
“I mean, since you’re not into school spirit or football, but you’re clearly into me, you can make an exception and come tonight.”
“You’re getting quite presumptuous lately.” I put on my best poker face. “Do I need to help you with that definition?”
“Not when I know the true word you’re looking for is cognizant.” He grins, stepping back. “I hope to see you tonight.”
“I’ll think about it.”
“I’m sure you always do.” He gives me a look so sexy that I almost melt into the floor.
Goddamn, Dean Collins…
Regret, Resentment, &
This book is divided into part
1 and part 2 or what I'd call before and after the ten year gap.
When you read the blurb you
get a certain image in your head right? So did I.
And for the most part it
compared. Until we got a glimps in Dean his head and you go oh damn.
Passion. Love. Life.
The connection Mia and Dean
share is one that stays and is never to fade. Only we know that life can play some tricks and make even the best of bonds shudder on their boundaries.
Love. Life. Regret.
Ten years after their "
mysterious" breakup fate has got new plans for these two.
Life. Regret. Redemption.
Hate at first sight until
desire becomes hunger that has to be fed.
At this point (towards the
end of the story) we still don't know why they broke up back then.
In comes Dean's p.o.v., which
completely puts things into perspective and will clear up all the questions that you might have still had. When they finally clear things up both of them realize that they have made mistakes.
But will that be enough to
patch things up? Or when all is said and done will it be too late?
This is a novel written by an
author that just entered this world and I must congratulate her on a job that is very well done. The story kept me entertained and interested which is something that isn’t always easy to do. I’m very curious what she has in store for us next.
