*** Now Live! $.99 Release Special ***
I ran away from the glitz and privilege of my famous New York City family to this small-town Texas college to find myself. I didn’t expect to find him…
…the muscular, tatted bad-boy who would soon become my obsession.
He was broken, lost, and voiceless … just like me.
His eyes smoldered me with one look.
His touch awakened the woman inside me.
And through his lips, his perfect, plush, kissable lips, he drew out the inspiration deep in my soul I did not know was there.
I needed to believe that he could save me. I wanted him to help me find my voice at last … the voice that would set me apart from my tragically perfect family, the voice that would finally break me free …
If only he could hear a word of it.
The College Obsession Romance series centers around a group of friends and the relationships they form during their time at a small-town Texas school. They are angsty, steamy new adult novels with HEAs and NO cheating. Although they are obsession-themed romances, there are no stalkers or psychos!
Oh my! Oh wow! Whew! Awwww! Don’t read my review… read this book! (ok, so maybe you should read my review, ha!) This is the perfect story about not judging a book by its cover. Unless you want to judge the actual book cover…then judge away because it is hawt! Read My Lips is a breath of fresh air. We are given a city girl, Dessie, who seeks some normalcy at a Texas college. She sees Clayton who is the tall, dark, gorgeous, and dangerous man we all want. She tries to get his attention a couple times and he totally blows her off. This is so incredibly frustrating but so perfect. This sets us up to find out that Clayton is deaf. They both have things they are running from and for. To see their relationship unfold went completely beyond my expectations. You follow them and want to push them toward each other and when they finally do connect, OMIGOSH! You can’t help but root for them. It’s beautiful, alluring, and incredibly angsty! Chapter 14! Just wait for it! Yes, yes and more yes! Then it just keeps coming. Perfect!
“His eyes smoldered me with just one look. His touch awakened the woman inside me. His breath drew out the inspiration deep in my soul that I did not know was there.”
“Okay, so I said yes. Something about a man like Clayton standing over me and asking … with his dark, hungry eyes and his smooth, sexy hands and his plush, perfect lips … is somewhat persuasive. Annoyingly persuasive.”
“You aren’t alone in this battle to find your voice. To find where you belong. To break free.” (this fits both of them to a T)
Ok, so enough with all my rambling and some of my favorite lines. This is where we part and you buy this book now! A super hot, angsty, beautifully written story that everyone needs to read. Thank you Mr. Banner, you have me hooked! Bring on Brant!
