Someone to Love
Someone to Love by Addison Moore
Genre: New Adult. Intended for mature audiences.
What happens when two people who don’t believe in love happen to fall madly, deeply into the most beautiful relationship they could ever imagine? A train wreck.
Twenty-year old Kendall Jordan devises a seat of the pants plan to “play the player.”
When Kendall spots gorgeous Cruise Elton from across the room, something in her burns to have him. There’s only one problem; Cruise likes the ladies, a lot, and Kendall has never shared so much as a decent kiss with a guy.
Kendall has long since come to discover that love is an illusion that never lasts and Cruise couldn’t agree more. So when Kendall proposes that Cruise tutor her in becoming a female version of himself, Garrison Universities own manwhore, he’s more than happy to comply.
But when real feelings begin to emerge, and neither Kendall nor Cruise know how to classify them, everything they once thought they knew is redefined as they discover in one another, Someone to Love.
This is an awesome romance book. I loved that it took place in college. Since I am in college myself, it is a little more relatable to me than books about people in high school. That being said, this is definitely a book for older teens. I would not let high schoolers read this book as there is a lot of sexual situations.
Kendall and Cruise really loved each other. Their chemistry jumped off the page, and I thought it was written really well. They learned a lot about love with and from each other. Their love story really was- for lack of a better word- beautiful. I appreciate a good love story, but at times I thought the book got a little slow. I wish we would have seen more of the smaller characters. I loved the parts with Kendall and Cruise, but after a while it got a little repetitive. I liked that Blair was involved, because it added some conflict. I kind of wish she would have caused problems earlier on though. She was just always in the background until the end. Overall though, I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it.
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
