What happens when you create rules to keep others out?  

One thing Emerson Moore has come to terms with is that she
is the school slut.
She knows her way around a frat house and how to get
what she wants. She doesn’t make any excuses for her actions and she doesn’t
pretend to be anything different. She is who she is and with that she knows
how to have a good time. She’s made rules to keep relationships at bay and
avoid the demons of her past. 

When her best friend,
Cole has his two friends from back home move in with him she begins to think
she has met her match with Jaxon Riley. Jax is the perfect mixture of tattooed
muscle and a sweet-talking mouth. With “hand” written notes, a voice that
exudes sex and knowing just how to get under her skin, Jaxon learns how to
break all the rules. But will he just end up breaking her heart anyway?

REVIEW by Dani

My heart broke so many times while reading this book. Emerson( Em, Emmy) was so hurt and broken it was so sad. She had to protect herself from loving again. Her parents died in what seems like a lie hanging over their heads. Emerson believes this lie and is determined to protect her heart at all cost, including coming up with “rules” to live by.

1. I don’t sleep with anyone that I know my friends like.

2. I don’t sleep with anyone’s boyfriend.

3. I never sleep with someone more than three times.

 Sounds simple enough. That is until the sexy Jaxon comes in. He is head over heels for this girl. He is determined to set out to make her his.

Jaxon is so patient and really works hard to try to heal Emerson. Emerson starts to feel like she can do this and finally fall into a relationship. They work through struggles and have unbelievable chemistry. Jaxon works hard to make sure Emerson knows she is loved. I will say what was great about this book is that both characters were not perfect, totally human flawed charecters, they both had major faults, bad past and hang-ups. Jaxon is the person to go after what he wants and as a typical guy does something stupid when he is hurt. Emerson takes this as a sign. She wants to move on to like she once was but can’t get past the intense feeling she has for Jaxon. Oh the story line tugged at my heart so much. I thought about it for days after. Emerson and Jaxon must decided if thet are good for each other or not, but when they are perfect together it is so perfect:

“Tell me that you want me,” he whispered.
“I want you.” Always.
“Only me?”
“Only you.” Had there ever been anyone else?

Kimberley Lauren has done a fantastic job of writing a book that you cant put down. I loved all of the characters, the story line is awesome. I was so drawn in and I love a book that can have my emotions all over the map. I was truly rooting for this couple the entire time. You want Emerson to have love because she is such a likable character. A fabulous debut novel. Read this and anything else after because Kimberly Lauren’s writing is fantastic.

About the Author:

I’m a wanderer, an adventurer, a traveler. I want to see it all. I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list.
“She travels the world & home is always in her heart.”
Lately if I’m
not traveling or chasing a toddler, I’m writing. Which is weird because I
hated writing in college. Oh wait, that’s because that was boring. Who really
wants to sit there and cite all your sources into APA format? Not this girl.
Writing for yourself is enjoyable and cathartic. Please try it. Then tell me
about because I love indie authors.
When I was 19,
I packed up and followed my high school sweetheart from Texas to California.
We had a blast living it up in San Diego. Four years later we made a crazy
decision and packed up again and moved to Germany. What? Yep, you read that
right. Guess what? Best decision ever! We OWNED Europe. For three years we saw
as much as we possibly could. We lived an hour outside of France, a couple
from Switzerland and Italy. Most amazing time of my life. Please go out there
and see the world, you won’t regret it. After Europe we moved back to
California, and for now we’re just debating our next adventure.
I earned a degree in Child
Development. And now I write novels. Makes perfect sense! I write because I
walk around all day with these stories in my head. It’s nice to be able to get
them out of my head in an organized fashion. I hope that someone out there
enjoys them, because I have enjoyed so many others’.
