@TheSpencerRyan exudes confidence, I mean, have you seen him??? His dark good looks and tattooed muscled perfection are too much. He's hot. Lickably hot. And he has a way with words that leaves me breathless. But cocky doesn't even cover it, this guy is so arrogant you have to fight back. But God he's so lickable! The thing is though, he looks like sex but he'll taste like jackass.
@OMGJazzyP is a sexy, annoying ball of rage in fuck-me heels and she hates me. Although her nipples would tend to disagree. It's a deadly combination. She’s a princess. And when I say princess, I mean intolerable, spoiled brat with a tiara. Sure she's got that curvaceous goddess thing going on, but that mouth of hers... God it needs something in it to shut it up. #GotJustTheThingRightHere
This is not your average British romance. It's a tale of high heels, hot tattooed bad boys and sex oranges, all wrapped up in a coating of chocolate. It's 'love' in a social media world, where not everyone is who they seem and where some people’s bios should carry a warning. #JustSayin
I’ve been making a concerted effort to read books that are already on my kindle. Spencer has been there since it came out and for some reason, it’s the one that spoke to me this time. I was unsure what to expect.
While I have read Kerry’s other books Just Human and Still Human, it’s been a long time. And I have to admit, the synopsis for this book was a bit of a detractor for me simply because of the unorthodox style, but given that it’s written because the book has a social media element, I did my best to put that aside.
I’m pleasantly surprised to tell you that I really liked this book. As in thoroughly enjoyed it. I couldn’t put it down! The characters drove me absolutely insane. Frankly, Spencer is a douchebag. And Jazz? Psychotic tendencies. Most of their actions were obnoxious, ridiculous, over the top, and completely irrational. But I could not. stop. reading! I totally ate it up. I got two hours of sleep because I couldn’t stop devouring the damn thing.
There were a couple of things that bugged me. For example, the author had a tendency to use multiple exclamation points to add a dramatic effect (ie: “Oh my God!!”) and often put words in all caps to emphasize them instead of italics. It could just be me being picky, but to me it gave the impression of being more juvenile and less professional.
At the end of the day, it was fun, it was hot, and it was a good light read. I couldn’t get enough of it; there’s a seriously addictive quality in this book and I don’t know what it is. The Twitter interaction and their angsty back and forth probably had something to do with it, but whatever it was, it worked. I really hope that Kerry’s next book is about the supporting characters, Will and Mags. I’m very intrigued by them. Read this book and then help me figure out why it was so damn addicting!
