When the Wrong Guy is Oh-So-Right
Will Thatcher is exactly the type of sexy playboy good girls like Brynn have always avoided. And yet there was still something about him she just couldn't resist. When Will moved across the country three years ago, Brynn vowed it was time to put him behind her. She never thought Will might have other plans . . .
Back in town, Will intends to get what he's always wanted-gorgeous, unforgettable Brynn. For years, he tormented the untouchable ice princess in a desperate bid for her attention. Now he has a new plan, and he'll do anything to rewrite their stormy past.
This time, he's out to show Brynn that the imperfect man might be the best mistake of her life . . .
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I enjoyed my emotional ride while reading MADE FOR YOU. I say “emotional” because there were parts that they were a bit painful to read—when I had finished, I felt a dull ache in my chest—even with the happy ending.
What I liked about MADE FOR YOU was the truthfulness it had, even though it hurt to read about. What I mean by this is that Will would be hurtful with his words most of the time and it actually hurt me to read about it, hence the dull ache I mentioned before. Will is a very determined and strong-willed character. While he knows what he wants, he still has trouble with handling the situation, in this case, the situation is Brynn.
Brynn and Will have an extremely rocky past. Their bickering is not normal—the reader can feel the hate while reading. Will left without a trace for years until he decided to come back and win Brynn over. Will was the first to really add fuel to the fire, which he shouldn’t have because he really hurt Brynn and ended up pushing her away entirely. When he comes back to win her over, she thinks it’s all just for sex. You see, Brynn is as clueless as they come. She is completely blind! She has Will wrapped around her tiny finger and she doesn’t even realize until…pretty much almost the end of the story, which sucked, to be honest, but the romance was there and it was slowly building up.
It was very fun to read about Brynn’s self-discovery. She’s this uptight, classy person and even when she tries to let loose…let’s just say she only does a bit of it. With Will’s help, she learns how to find herself again and how to let go of the past and start anew. While the bickering was hurtful, they did have fun time a couple of times when they weren’t going for each other’s throats. They knew about their own sexual frustration so they would slightly tease one another to see who would give in first.
All in all, my experience was gratifying. I enjoyed reading this story a lot more than I thought I would. Will’s character is my favorite one of all. And even though Brynn’s character would frustrate me at times, I enjoyed reading about her when she started leading her true inner self out.
