Envy is a silent, cold-blooded killer, extinguishing a little more life from me every day.
Hitting sharp, fast and seemingly out of nowhere; struck by lightning not a storm cloud in sight... in she rolls. Reece Madison, a force to be reckoned with, head of the class- which means one thing- she's out of mine.
"You're wasting your time Rhett Foster. Locks have keys and walls can be climbed. I'm not buying your cold, skeptical act for one minute."
And then there's that...
But as much as she compels me to open up, show her what no one else gets to see…there’s guilty shadows lurking in the depths of her eyes that she cannot hide.
It always happens the same way, every time. The second I finish coming, the blip of exhilaration dissipates, and I’m left feeling vapid and angry. I turn my back on my latest conquest and, blocking out the images of insincere, physical satiation, I scurry off like a criminal. Maybe I should quit fucking them.
Or maybe I shouldn’t. The tête-à-têtes, and unrequited clinginess as much their fault as my own—more in fact, if everyone’s being honest with themselves. I tell them, straight up, in plain English, no “code” or sidestepping what I’m really saying, that it’s one fuck. I offer absolutely nothing more, and they accept. But women have a specific order and purpose to everything they do. It shouldn’t eat at me when another woman discovers her plan didn’t work, and surprise, she isn’t the one “different” enough to change me.
You want to be the lady worthy of a call the next day, flowers, a ring? Then don’t ride the dick until you get at least one of them. And if you do jump on—gyrating and grinding in what you’re just certain is some mystical, “He’s never had it so good before” kind of way, and it doesn’t work—don’t blame anyone but yourself. Who was really trying to manipulate who?
Review by Gia
Pretty Remedy is book two in the the Finally Found series. It can be read as standalone. Reece is Las Vegas for her best friend Landry's wedding. Landry is a free spirit wild child. Her and Reece seem so different but they are best friends. Reece doesn't seem to be as wild as Landry but she does know how to stand up for herself. Reece is definitely not a pushover.
Rhett is a drummer who once toured with his band. He missing the touring. He is a player and is not looking for love. Reece catches Rhett's attention when he's working at the club she goes to. At first I thought he was a little cocky and I loved that Reece wasn't just falling at his feet.
In Las Vegas she does let go a little and has fun. Back home is a different story. Reece has keep the part of what she does for a living a secret from Rhett. I was a little surprise of what her position was. I really didn't like her father, he's kind of a slime ball.
Pretty Remedy is a great read. I loved how it had romance, angst, humor, and a hot rock star, how can you go wrong with that mix.
