Wouldn’t mind some more.
Same ol’ story— they meet, roll around in the sheets, and get their happily ever after… or don’t— right? So what makes ours any different?
Simple. This story involves one Presley Alexandra Beckett.
The woman who takes any and every damn thing I thought I knew and flips, twists, distorts, denies and defies it until I lose track of up from down.
Just when I start to think I’ve got her figured out… I uncover the real reason why Presley spends her life hiding behind a wall of sassy, stubborn deflection.
Now I fix it.
Make her mine.
Whether she likes it or not.
He reaches past Bellamy to open the glove box, and sure enough, pulls out three bottles of pepper spray. I thought he was kidding; he’s never gone to these extremes before, when we’ve went… anywhere. “Excuse me, Sergeant Shithead?” I tap his shoulder. “What’s with the extra precautionary measures tonight?”
“Like I said earlier, Private PainInMyAss, there’s three of you, one of me, and hundreds of them. Also as mentioned before, this is Bellamy and Brynn’s first frat party, so unlike any other type of party… that’s a factor I considered while prepping.”
“Speaking of things mentioned earlier, I believe you’re making the point I tried to for me. You know, that this is a really bad idea. The fact you feel it necessary to equip us with a multi-step, tactical plan, and weaponry, like we’re being deployed to Desert Storm, might be a sign that I’m right?” Surely, they’ll all see reason and finally agree with me. I’m always up for a party, good time… if it’s safe. This is not. I knew it before we got here, and now that we are on scene, my gut’s screaming in warning. I didn’t correct JT before, but this is my first frat party too… for reasons I’ll never list.
“Desert Storm ended well over two decades ago,” Brynny says. “Over before anyone in this car was even born.”
JT and Bellamy laugh, but I don’t think she’s funny — and scowl at her accordingly. “Brynny, as fascinated as I usually am by your amazing brain-bank of random factoids, I’m feeling sort of off tonight, so could ya maybe not? You know the point I was trying to make, so feel free to miss me with the pointless history lesson.”
I forgot how much I love this family. Presley’s book brought all that home for me. Between dying from laughter, heartwarming family bonds, swoon worthy romance, and of course making me sob Elusive made for an incredible and addictive read. I was flying through the pages oblivious to the world around me. This may be my favorite book by her yet!
Presley is so complex. There’s much more behind that front of tough, wild, and commitment free that she wears like armor. My heart ached for the girl I caught glimpses of when she was with Sutton. I wanted to hug her and shake her at the same time. Sutton is honestly perfection. A giant teddy bear, at least when it comes to Presley. His determination to get past her walls only made me love him more. Despite the constant push and pull between them you can still feel that love building. You just KNOW these two are perfect together. Now I’m on the edge of my seat dying for the next part of their story! I cannot wait for it!
