Having the wrong things in common with the right girl at the wrong time has always been a tragic issue for Easton Ballantine. At least it was when it came to Georgia Armstrong.
Georgia Armstrong’s nomadic life had left her worn and lacking the desire to attach to anyone or anything. She’d been burned and felt the coldness of loss and was content to drift at will until she found a reason to stay.
Broken roads and bad decisions, which led to right ones, were the demons in both their past—choices that would either draw them together, or rip them apart.
“I tend to attract the broken.”
“I’m not broken,” Easton snapped in a hiss of words.
She felt her body tense before her next bold words came. “Did I say you were?” She lifted her chin. “Am I attracting you, Easton Ballantine?”
He looked right at her, green to blue, a stare reaching past the fraudulent calm surface. Yes, she was. Which only pissed him off more. Not only was she not anywhere near his type, she was Memphis’s kid sister, Lucas’s daughter—she was seventeen. No way in hell this is going down.
He smirked to break the gaze they shared, to put a wall between her and him—to do anything to block the way she was messing with his head.
“I’m every kind of bad habit you don’t want or need, Georgia.”
This series is great!! I really hope that it continues on because these characters are freaking wonderful! Easton and Georgia’s connection was fantastic and sweet and I just loved it! Their connection started when they were little and throughout all the years apart and all the hardships they went through alone, it did nothing but end up bringing them closer together in the end.
Georgia is in a rut. Being taken advantaged of over and over again has made her life a living hell. But when a humiliation comes as a blessing in disguise she jumps on it and turns her life into the life that she has always wanted. When she is called back the little town of Willowhaven for a wedding she is equal parts dreading and anticipating interacting with the only boy who made her heart fly but who also shot it down. Can she overcome her past and put down the roots her father told her so much about. Can she do it with the one person who always saw past her walls or will her past over take her and make her turn her back on everything she worked so hard to have.
Easton is has been dealt a hard hand. Losing his father at a young age had him erecting one wall after another. Then shortly after he enters young adulthood, another tragedy befalls him. The only saving grace he had, in the both times his world stopped, was the one girl who made him feel alive. But she was elusive as smoke and he let her go. After he gets dealt a hand that changes his life forever, his beautiful elusive girl blows back into town. He is ready now more than ever to go after what he wants. But will his past creep up and steal away his chance for his happily ever after?
This story was great and filled with crazy exs and the wisdom of putting down roots. I loved Georgia’s brother, Memphis, and I cannot wait until he gets his own story!! He was so chill and happy for Easton and Georgia to be together. I also liked that the crazy ex wasn’t limited to only one main character. Both, Easton and Georgia, had bat shit crazy exs and I’m glad that they both handled their pasts and were able to look towards the future.
This novel had everything. The plot was right on point. The curb appeal, aka the cover and blurb, were amazing and definitely pulled me in. And that last chapter…holy shit! It made me cry and smile and laugh, it was freaking fantastic!!!
Ultimately this series is getting better and better! All the characters in this novel were wonderful and it gave me super feels!! I really hope that we keep getting introduced to amazing characters and crazy story lines. If you’re in the mood for an angsty, but amazingly sweet, new adult romance please come and find out why Friction is the good kind of burn! 😉
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
