Crushed By Lauren Layne

Devon and Kristin Chloe agrees to a deal that seems too good to be true Before long Chloe finally gets her man only to make a startling discovery She no longer wants the guy she had to fight for she wants the one who stood by her side   After all he and Chloe have been through Michael swears he’s damaged goods Can Chloe convince him that love is worth the ris. 45 Stars I don t think it s about who loves you first It s about who loves you best There s a reason that Lauren Layne has become one of my favorite New Adult authors There s just something about her writing and her characters that never fails to reel me in and keep me glued to the pages It also never fails to give me that warm and fuzzy feelings right in my tummy that I ve come to adore about New Adult There s no insta anything and her characters are far from perfect and watching that progress and develop through the story is the best feeling in the world I have to admit that I wasn t too keen on Michael after first meeting him in Isn t She Lovely But then right around Broken that changed My heart hurt for him and I couldn t wait for the guy that fell in love with his best friend s girlfriend only to be devastatingly rejected by her in the end to get his HEA Michael s world changed forever right around the time his heart was shattered into a million pieces First he gets rejected by the girl he s been in love with for years A girl that just so happened to be his best friend s girlfriend at that he cheated with So in the span of one kiss he lost the girl AND his best friend Then his world gets rocked when he finds out that his whole life has been a lie and his father isn t his father In the hopes to get to know the man that is his true father he moves to Texas but he s no longer the boy that he was He s broody he s disenchanted and jaded He no longer believes in love but working as a tennis pro for the rich and the bored he has no problem being the boy toy to the spoiled housewives But he has ulterior motives to working there He has his eye on a girl that happens to be his half brother s girlfriend A half brother that has no idea he exists And while Michael has his eye on Kristin the gorgeous and spoiled rich girl her frumpy sister is in love with Devon On a good day I m curvy On a bad one I m plumpMost of the days are bad ones Chloe is honestly what truly made this book for me Her ability to laugh at herself and this lighthearted presence she had to her was a breath of fresh air She s so fun and uirky and just this girl next door that could be anyone s best friend Being the frumpy sister to the perfect skinny one is no easy feat It s also twice as hard being in love with her boyfriend for as long as she remembers But Chloe knows she has no chance So when Michael offers her a chance to make Devon notice her she may be hesitant at first but she takes it What ensues is an unwilling friendship that slowly begins to turn into much Michael might be sick of being second choice But the rejected woman part of meSHE S tired of being the platonic sidekick These two were polar opposites but yet made perfect sense together And the banter between them Absolute perfection So what s the problem he asksI justit s never like it is in the moviesMichael makes a strangled noise and turns toward my nightstand opening a drawerWhat are you doing I askLooking for a gun he mutters before shutting it again Are you fucking kidding me You re one of those girls waiting for the movie kissI scrunch my nose at his disbelieving face They do exist But then somewhere between the personal training and just hanging out together their plans shift and it begins to turn into something much With Chloe it s easy to forget that I m nobody Because she makes me feel like somebody I loved the slow burn element to the story It s truly brilliant when the reader discovers things right along with the characters Chloe and Michael didn t lust for each other at first sight and that was evident But somewhere along the way their feelings shift and you get to experience that with themIt was perfectionIt s not often that this self proclaimed smut slut enjoyed a story that basically has zero sex this much But to be honest anything would have been plain filler The one and only scene is filled with so much feeling that it s satisfying all on it s own Immensely so Did I also happen to mention

SUMMARY Crushed By Lauren Layne

Lauren Layne’s latest novel about the healing power of redemption tells the story of a crush gone wickedly wrong proving that what you want isn’t always what you need   Growing up in New York Michael St Claire never expected to spend his twenties wearing cowboy boots But that was before he learned about his real father a total stranger with a family in Cedar. 45 STARSARC Provided by Random House Publishing Group Loveswept via Netgalley in Exchange for an Honest ReviewBR with Dee and Mel I don t think it s about who loves you first It s about who loves you best And that s me I love you best More than I love anyone More than you ve ever been loved Chloe I m a really huge fan of Lauren Layne s works I ve read just about all her books and am lucky in that I usually get approved on Netgalley for her ARCs Sometimes her stories can be just okay but when she gets it right she knocks it out of the park Well she s definitely done that with CRUSHEDUsually I fall in love with the main male character in the story and while that did happen here with Michael I was also HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE with Chloe She was just so unexpected I never thought that Michael would fall for a woman like her I mean he was madly in love with Olivia and she was walking perfection Chloe was a REAL woman with curves and crazy curly out of control hair AND this girl had the most FABULOUS sense of humor ever I lost count on how many times I laughed out loud reading this one When I read the first book in this series titled Isn t She Lovely I thought that was Ms Layne s masterpiece but this one definitely rivals itMichael moves to Dallas after having his world turned upside down when he finds out the man he has called Father his entire life actually is not his biological father His mother had an affair with a man who currently lives in Texas and has a wife and son Michael ends up working as a tennis instructor and personal trainer at the country club that his real father is a member of He comes up with a plan to get close to the Bellamy sisters who have close relationships with his half brother DevonHe sets his sights on the pretty sister Kristin but soon meets the delightful and slightly chubby Chloe He uickly deduces that Chloe has a major crush on Devon who happens to be dating her sister Michael offers to help Chloe get her man During their time spent together both start to realize they are developing feelings for each other I really loved that Michael was attracted to Chloe with all her curves and wild hair When she starts losing weight and tries to change her hair to look like her sister s Michael is the first to declare that he prefers her normal look and that she shouldn t change a thing except for maybe her wardrobe Since she was always wearing really bulky clothes in order to hide her bodyI was going insane just waiting for these two to get together Michael was the stubborn one who kept pushing Chloe away He believed that she was crazy in love with Devon and that he was just her second choice He was already in a situation like that and it didn t end well for him so Michael is than a bit gun shy of putting himself out there againEventually and I mean you have to wait until you get almost 75% through the story they finally give in to their physical attraction to each other and I d give the scene a PG 13 rating The author normally doesn t get too descriptive with her sexy time scenes but I think it had just enough spiceMy only issue was with Michael being so stubborn and sometimes stupid towards the end of the story I wish that he had realized sooner that Chloe was worth the risk But I guess that s the angst part of the story that we usually need in a good romanceI loved how it all comes together in the end It had to in order for Michael to truly heal from his past I kind of wish the epilogue gave us a deeper look into Chloe and Michael s future but it was still a sweet ending
