Well this one, I must admit… I chose, by totally judging a book by it’s cover. Oh. And the awesome title. And the blurb. 😛 And, overall… it was pretty good, too! A light read, with a bit of angst, and steam, and OH NO HE DIDN’T moments. What made this one stand out to me, was how unique it sounded ’cause she was not your typical heroine in ANY way. Especially when it came to her appearance. The whole motto is DON’T judge a book by it’s cover. Clever author!!! LOL!
Now of course we are ALL looking for alpha-male books, ’cause that’s pretty much our thing, isn’t it? 😉 Alpha romance? US!! It’s a given. It’s much of what brought all of us readers together. Our love of Alpha McBossypants heroes that infuriate us, and then turn around and give us butterflies in our stomach. BEST. FEELING. EVER.
But let’s thank these two readers that have re-activated our love of good alpha-lists, and the books that make ’em!
Our Facebook crew has solved another book mystery! Jennifer needed our book help! The title of this one?
I read a book over a year ago (book 1) was about a girl, I think she worked at a coffee shop (controlling guy owned)
She was in between the controlling guy & a rocker guy.
anyone remember the name & is book 2 out?
It ended with her packing to go to the controlling guy (I believe) because he went to London or someplace far away.”
But that’s because we love the drama of the wondering… of the “OH NO HE DIDN’T” moments, of the cocky bad-boy moments, the romantic indifference, the seemingly unrequited love, and then… the sweeeeet relief when the love finally allllll comes together. YES!!!
But make it hurt first, right? And a maybe a little after… too.
So Viki asks:
Hi there! …I am in need of a great book about an a$$hole guy who love a girl but treats her bad because he doesnt know how to handle his feelings for her. But I like happy endings lol
For so many of us, there’s just nothing better than a moody, brooding, reclusive, detached book “hero”. Okay, yes in real life, I’m thinking that would get old. Fast. But in our book worlds? Pining for that completely uninterested, no-nonsense alpha-male, and then experiencing “being” the one (and pretty much the only one) that finally turns him around (at least, in part). At least when it comes to her.
Ahhhhhhh the unrequited love for that guy that seems to need nobody, but that everyone wants to be a part of. The thrill of the chase (or of the “wait”). That exquisite “have to work for it” feel. Even the tentative friends-first thing. Then it slowly builds.
