PRETENDING My Review April 14th to April 19th, 2014.

Publication date: March 12 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Four years.

That’s how long Wesley Kent has to live with the girl his dad shacked him up with, and then he can collect his inheritance and escape small town life. He gets through the prison sentence by pretending Dahlia Reynolds doesn’t exist. With three years down and one more to go, he doesn’t expect much to change. That is, until the girl that’s not supposed to exist sharpens into his reality, making it impossible to ignore her.

Three years.

That’s how long Dahlia Reynolds has been living with a total stranger. She’s convinced herself Wesley Kent is no more than illusion in the hallways. It’s easy to do, especially since that same illusion has never spoken more than two words to her. But one mistaken identity later, and she finds herself caught up in the mysterious world Wesley lives in. One by one, he begins knocking down the safe, comfortable walls she built, leaving her wondering what his motives are. Does he want to expose her—or free her?

Recommended for 17+ due to mature language and adult situations.

My Review :

Dahlia Reynolds aka Doll has been living in her step-father's house while studying as he has recently died and the stipulation was that she finish her degree and live in the house to receive half of what was left for her in the will. The other half goes to her stepfather Harland's son Wesley Kent aka Wes. Three years has passed since Harland's death and the two are non-speaking roommates as the house is big enough for neither one to get in the others way, that is until now when Wes arrives home drunk and Doll has to cater to him, then later he spots her in the library. As the story goes on we learn that both of them are hiding secrets, secrets that if they were to be leaked could end up dangerous to those around them and also they have one thing in common - the sword of dreams , each wanting to search for the lost treasure to prove to a loved one that they are worth it, no matter what anyone else says. Can Wes be the guy that can pull Dahlia out of her funk and help her to realise that she isn't worthless and that she isn't alone in this world ? Can Dahlia be the one that will make Wes settle down and has he found a partner in this world to accompany him on his treasure hunt escapades ?  I thought this book was going to be a normal, fluff read. I was wrong. This book was so great. I don't even know how to describe it, but you should read it. I really liked it at first I did not think that I would but then as I kept reading I could not put it down. Please remember that this is a Adults only Book
