What happens when two people who don’t believe in love, happen to fall madly into the most beautiful relationship they could ever imagine? A train wreck. When twenty-year-old Kendall Jordan transfers clear across country to Garrison University, the last thing she’s looking for is a one-night stand. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what, gorgeous, Cruise Elton offers. Kendall has long since come to realize that love is an illusion that never lasts, and Cruise couldn’t agree more—but something deep inside her wants him all for herself. So, Kendall devises a seat of the pants plan to “play the player” and proposes that Cruise tutor her in becoming a female version of himself, Garrison University’s own playboy. Real feelings begin to emerge, and neither Kendall nor Cruise know how to classify them. Everything they once thought they knew is redefined as they discover, in one another, Someone to Love.
I love Addison Moore as a writer. I really enjoy her Celestra series and the new series she’s just started, The Countenance. She has a knack for spinning a tale. That is why I was a little disappointed in this book, I just had higher expectations in her journey into a more adult subject matter. This story, though predictable, was a fun journey into the budding relationship and maturity of Cruise and Kendall. It was fun to be apart of their quest to get to know one another in pretty much every sense of the word. A lot of stuff was hard to believe, mostly the whole teacher/student relationship, though Cruise was more of a TA that stood in as a teacher. The thing I was most disappointed in was the fact that the characters didn’t really jump off the page like in Moore’s previous work. They were there, very shallow characters. Yes it was a fun and light read, but it could have been so much more.
“…did I just say fate? I so don’t believe in that. Fate is bullshit people force-feed themselves when they’re too lazy to carve out a destiny of their own.”
