Undeniably You by Jewel E. Ann
“I love you … only you … always you … forever you.”
Well that was an emotional rollercoaster. There were times when I was screaming at my kindle, moments when I was literally laughing out loud, and tears in my eyes. That’s the mark of a good writer and a good book.
Sydney is house-sitting and dog-sitting for her aunt and uncle in Palo Alto, California for a month before heading off to Paris for a year in pursuit of her dreams. In a weird twist of fate, Sydney meets Lautner in which she confuses him for the pool boy and quirkiness ensues.
Soon Sydney and Lautner finding themselves falling for each other when they meant to keep things light. And their newfound relationship has a deadline… which Sydney could change if she wanted to.
This was one of the angstiest books I’ve read in a long time. Not my usual type of preferred angst as this was rife with misconceptions and instalove, but I still really liked it in the end. Both characters made mistakes but their intentions were always good and that’s something I admire in my romantic leads. No mind games, no asshole actions, just mistakes that changed the course of their paths.
Lautner was a really sweet guy. I kind of wish he was a little bit more bad but he still ranks high on the hotness scale. I love that he went after what he wanted with no qualms about it, knowing his lifetime of happiness was within reach.
Sydney. Oh Sydney. I normally have a very high tolerance for female leads but I wanted to smack my kindle over her head. For such a smart girl she was so dumb and infuriating!!! Her actions time and again were sooooooo off. She’s a lucky bitch for even landing Lautner in the first place!!
Anyways, rant over. Thanks to Stephanie and everyone who recommended me this book. Jewel, you got a new fan and avid reader in me!
