Beck by Harper Sloan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ve always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I’m content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn’t need a man.
But the truth is I’m just as broken as the rest of you. I’m terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again.
All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No… he doesn’t just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can’t have.
So I did the only thing I know how to do.
But he just won’t let me go.
The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn’t want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out.
To make her mine.
She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her.
She’s it for me and she knows it.
She’s just too scared to admit it.
BECK YOU Harper Sloan….I need a cuddle
We thought we knew the whole story, until we didn't. What the hell is going on!!?? We thought we knew everything. If we'd just known, instead of not knowing, then so much would have already been known, you know? I didn't see it coming (Yet, she constantly had me coming). Oh my God!! I'm all over the place here!!. I. Didn't. Know.
Just when you think you know everything, about Dee, about Izzy, about Greg. You don't. You know nothing!!
Well, now I know!!
For those of you who haven't read this series, Harper Sloan has created an addictive world of alpha males who's sole purpose is to keep those they care about safe, along with enough sexual tension to short out my kindle, and blind my eyes. Beck had the same humor and wit as the other two books, but at the same time it possessed something a little darker. I thoroughly loved the contrast! I thoroughly loved Beck.
Dee however, drove me insane! There were times when I wanted to take Beck's rock hard penis and beat her in the face with it…repeatedly, but I guess I sort of understand where she's coming from. I just don't remember her getting on my nerves this much in the other two books. Plus I was hoping for a little more insight into the beginning of her and Beck's relationship. I was hoping to read more of those beginning moments; the foundation. I absolutely loved what I did get, but I guess I wished for more.
What has me wanting to molest Harper Sloan's writing hand is her decision to take the road less traveled. Hell, she off-roaded this bitch. She took your typical Happily Ever After and turned it into Happily Ever What the Hell!! Stories aren't made to be perfect, they're made to make you feel. Sometimes hurt is even more powerful than love. It's more powerful than Happily Ever After.
I have absolutely no patience when it comes to Harper Sloan, and Harper Sloan has no patience when she makes us come. She makes us fall…one man at a time. I cannot wait for the next book!
