Riley Walker does not make mistakes.
Riley Walker certainly doesn’t make spontaneous decisions.
But then Riley Walker gets dumped.
Spectacularly, gut-wrenching, stomp all over her heart dumped. And she is feeling more than a little angry. And a whole lot bitter. And suddenly the girl who has always done everything right feels like doing something completely wrong.
Garrett Bellows, lead guitarist for the local band, Generation Rejects, is going through life without a plan. Trying not to think past the next gig or the next party, he has worked hard to not become too attached to anyone or anything. So he is shocked to find himself drawn to the snarky girl with a chip on her shoulder. She pisses him off and puts him down. He knows she’s nothing more than a self-entitled college brat who thinks she’s better than the townie boy without a future.
Alcohol and a hefty dose of lust leads to a night both Riley and Garrett immediately regret. Her embarrassment, his pride and the weight of rumors and misconceptions convince Riley and Garrett that their one-time indiscretion will never be repeated. Particularly when their harshest critics are each other.
But how do you reconcile a head that wants to let go with a heart that keeps holding on?
And what happens when your biggest regret begins to seem almost perfect?
I listened silently, not sure what to do or say. This quiet, introspective side of Garrett had me off balance.
And when he started to hum along to the strange melody I had to stop myself from sighing aloud. Hey, even I wasn’t immune to a good-looking musician. I did possess the double X chromosome, you know.
His eyes were closed and his fingers moved along the fret board with a confidence that was definitely appealing. His face was open and unguarded and I could watch him like this forever.
I liked this Garrett. I more than liked this Garrett. He fascinated me.
Garrett opened his eyes and found me watching him. The air heated between us, the molecules practically crackling with electricity.
“God, you’re beautiful,” he said softly, as though more to himself than to me.
My heart was beating at a frantic pace in my chest, his words twinging something in my brain. Images flashed in my head of him kissing the inside of my thighs. I could almost feel his lips as they moved up my skin to taste between my legs.
The memory was so vivid that I knew it could only be from that night. Shit, I remembered him fucking me with his tongue before he crawled over top of me and told me how beautiful I was. And the look in his eyes had been earth shattering.
I tingled from head to toe and I desperately wanted to remember more.
I am in LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with this book!! A. Meredith Walters is a literary genius. This is definitely a 5 star read, this series so far is a 5 star series, one of my favorites so far.
Riley Walker has her life all planned out, she knows what she wants and how she wants to achieve it and nothing can side track her. She doesn't have time for people who waste their life away. I love Riley's smart mouth and attitude, she is definitely my kind of girl, we could so be friends. Riley's life was going great, school and social life were about as good as they could be until her boyfriend Damien decided he wanted something different than what they had and just dropped her. Riley was pissed and hurt, so in true best friend fashion Maysie pulls her out of her funk and makes her go to a Generation Rejects after party for some fun.
Insert Garrett Bellows, lead guitarist for Generation Rejects and the one person that Riley can't stand. He is the definition of slacker in her eyes and every time they are around each other the insults start flying. Riley finally gets a glimpse at the real Garrett Bellows, not the guy he lets every one else see and she realizes she may have been a bit judgemental where he is concerned but the damage is done and she may have pushed him a little too far. The chemistry between them is undeniable and Garrett is by far my favorite band member. And for those of you that fell in love with Jordan and Maysie, don't worry their story continues in this book as well.
I can't wait for more from this series and the rest of the band members and friends. I am now an A. Meredith Walters fan for life and will read anything and everything she writes. She definitely has a way with words that will have you laughing out loud.
