Genre: New Adult Romance
Second chances are sweeter than ever in Charlotte Stein’s steamy Dark Obsession series—perfect for fans of Katy Evans—as a self-reliant college girl falls for a reformed bully who’s desperate to make up for lost time.
Letty Carmichael can’t believe her eyes when she catches a glimpse of her high school tormenter, wrestling champ Tate Sullivan, on campus. College was supposed to be her escape from Tate’s constant ridicule. Now he’s in her classes again, just waiting for his chance to make her life hell. But when Letty and Tate are partnered up for an assignment—on sex in cinema, of all things—she starts to see a kinder, gentler side of him. And when she realizes Tate knows more about sex than she could ever guess at, he soon starts making her blush in a whole new way.
Tate Sullivan is haunted by regret over his cruelty toward Letty. So when she agrees to work with him, he seizes his chance to make amends. He can’t blame her for not believing he’s for real, but soon Tate starts to break down her wall. She wants to know about passion, desire, lust—topics he is well versed in. And in return she offers the one thing he always wanted: the chance to be more than just a jock.
Letty is shocked by how sensitive Tate can be. Still, desiring him feels ludicrous. Loving him is impossible. Craving him is beyond all reason. So why can’t she stop? (Thanks to GoodReads.com for the summary)
My Thoughts –
Never Sweeter is a powerful story of over-coming one’s past and believing in the one you love. Written well, I liked the banter and wicked hot chemistry Letty and Tate have.
Letty doesn’t trust Tate, nor does she have a reason. He and his friends almost killed her in a prank gone too far. He’s changed though and although it takes a while, she eventually sees it. Tate is cool. He made a lot of mistakes in the past for the wrong reasons, but he’s on the road to redemption and happiness with Letty. A simple conversation would have cleared up the initial misunderstanding, but then there wouldn’t have been a story.
I liked this story a lot. I read it all in one day. I didn't even know it was part of a series until writing this review. It reads well, is fast paced and over all just great. Awesome job to the author – keep up the good work!!
