I did something I had never done before.
I had a one-night stand.
Then in true me fashion, I left my phone at his house during my desperate venture to escape.
I tried hard to ignore the texts sent to my best friend's phone...
Amethyst: Sup, these selfies are cute as s**t, but your lips looked better wrapped around my…
I did NOT text him back.
I DID vow to never speak of him, or that night again...
I'm Amethyst Lily Tatum, and up until this point, I'd managed to maintain a fairly low-key life. I'm what you would call a socially unacceptable hot mess. Instead of partying, I'm skating, flipping ollie's over guys who loved to underestimate me. Then I started college, met a wild girl who I would soon call my best-friend, had my first drunk one-night stand, left my phone at his house, and then, when I finally managed to meet my mom's new boyfriend, I found out that my one-night stand, was now my new stepbrother.

This book has interesting characters and a very intriguing story. However, there was so much family drama I almost couldn’t keep track of it. My mind is kind of blown; I think the author tried to fit too much into one book. Although the plot was very engaging and fast paced I feel like there was a lack of character development for the purpose of a crazier storyline. The author was definitely very creative in terms of how she crafted the story. If you are looking for an over the top dramatic read with soulmates and a happy ending this is the story for you. Just be wary of the scenes that go in an out of order (sometimes leaving gaps in the plot) and know there’s an insanely complicated plot ready to be unleashed.
Oh the angst
*** 4.5 Stars***
I need a drink or maybe a full on spa day with a deep tissue massage and then a drink or ten because that was intense. Maddox and Amethyst’s journey is as chaotic, and exhausting, as a Cat 5 hurricane and yet, just like those storms, it was just as absolutely fascinating. The angsty drama is relentless as is the chemistry between Maddox and Amethyst and when combined it made for an addicting read.
Maddox and Amethyst I loved. I did. But...Maddox is all kinds of Alpha AF male. Charismatic, cocky, arrogant and can be a huge a%&h#t, but there is also a hesitant sweetness and strong core of honor that makes him utterly lethal. Amethyst is independent, determined, hard working and responsible. She’s also, when given the chance (i.e. when she let’s go) sassy and snarky. Her sense of self, of making her own path, was something that I admired about her along with her heart.
Amethyst and Maddox’s journey is one that definitely falls under the “Epic” label. The connection they had from the first time they collided, and throughout the book, was a tangible one that jumped off the page...but goodness, they did not make anything easy. Whether it was because of outside influences, or their own choices, they made each other bleed. The angst is high. The drama is high. But..and this is a huge BUT, the pull between them never faded and showed that regardless of everything going on, in the end, they were the only one who could give each other what they needed.
You know, there was a time where I was all about low angsty stories, but over time I’ve come to appreciate and even enjoy the higher end of the angst spectrum more and more, but boy howdie...this one...this one kind of did me in. The landmines are many as were the twists and turns that popped up throughout the story. BUT what kept me from truly tossing the Kindle into the freezer were the characters and the family feel they brought to the story. My favs were Talon, Wolf and Leila, but in the end, I really liked the mass majority of them. So, if you love angsty goodness that teeters on the edge of being OTT and well written characters, then this is definitely a MUST read.

This was a great story. Very intense. They always knew there would be the right time for them. They just had tons of family DRAMA.
