Destroy Me by Shana Vanterpool
Crystal Gulf #1
New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Releasing: March 8, 2016
DESTROY ME is book one in the New Adult romance Crystal Gulf Series.
Bach lives his life with honesty and without restraints, happy to be known as a sexy as all hell, unapologetic asshole.
When he drinks, he drinks hard.
When he wants a woman, he makes sure she knows it.
When he opens his mouth, it’s either to piss someone off or to turn someone on.
You can normally find him with one hand on a bottle and one hand on a woman, trying to forget his past.
Harley Evans is a twenty-one-year-old year old college student. She's a good girl who fell hard for Dylan, who’d promised her forever. But Dylan, Bach’s best buddy, lied.
He enlisted in the Army, crushing Harley with equal parts anger and sadness. She’d already lost her father to that choice. Heartbroken, she falls back into depression.
Stuck in Crystal Gulf all summer with little to do, Harley needs a distraction. Enter Bach, sexy as f*#ck distraction, ready and willing.
Dylan’s not all bad though. Before he left, he asked Bach to watch out for Harley, knowing she’d never go for a guy like Bach. She’s too good for him. Too good for anyone.
But Dylan was wrong. He never should have left them together. Bach is there to pick up the pieces Dylan left behind. Soon pieces aren't enough. He wants more, needs more Harley.
WOW. This book was VERY hard to put down, and VERY hard to let go of. When the story ended I felt lost because I wanted to continue reading. That my friends is how good it is. Gah, talk about a book that will tear your heart out and put the pieces back together. I loved everything about this one. It has heart, soul, angst, and emotional twists and turns. I simply couldn’t get enough of this one, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the series progresses. Shana Vanterpool is an author to watch out for. I have read a few of her books now and each and every one is GOOD. If you haven’t picked up one of her books yet I strongly suggest doing so. You will not be disappointed!
So this book is about Harley and Bach – two people who seem to be complete opposites of each other. Bach is the sexy bad boy. He has had his share of pain, likes to drink, and doesn’t care who he lets into his bed. He is quite obviously beautifully broken and I loved him to pieces even though he is an arrogant ass at fist. Harley on the other hand is as sweet as pie. She’s one of those characters that readers find easy to connect with. All she wants is love and companionship. While she thought she had that with Dylan, she soon realizes that this isn’t the case.
WOW. So this book gives you all the feels. It’s one of those books where you’re not sure how these two total opposites find love within each other but it happens, and happens good. I love the writing style, the character flaws, the interactions between Bach and Harley, and, well, everything about this book! Once again, if you enjoy the new adult genre, you need to pick up books by this author. She writes wonderful stories that truly capture your heart and soul. She knows how to write bad boys too! ;)
