Never Sweeter ð Second chances are sweeter than ever in Charlotte Stein’s steamy Dark Obsession series perfect for fans of Katy Evans as a self reliant college girl falls for a reformed bully who’s desperate to make up for lost time Letty Carmichael can’t believe her eyes when she catches a glimpse of her high school tormenter wrestling champ Tate Sullivan on campus College was supposed to be her escape from Tate’s constant ridicule Now he’s in h 425 Emotional Stars “And what was yours? How did you think of the shit between us?”“I don’t know I think you want me to say a game but that wasn’t true It never felt like a game to me It felt like I was trapped behind glass watching a really shitty version of myself operating my body”Letty Carmichael and Tate Sullivan have a history In high school and I do mean all of high school Tate and his friends tormented Letty The taunts were constant and things got so bad that at one point Letty ended up in the hospital and spent what was supposed to be her first two years of college recuperating So what happens when looking to put the past behind you you see your tormentor for the very first time in two years?What happens when you find yourself not only sharing a class but assigned to work together on a project?The first 5% of Never Sweeter had me convinced there was no possible way Tate had a chance in hell of redeeming himself I mean come on There are just some things you can’t come back from The uncertainty Letty felt not only with herself but from people as a rule was truly heartbreaking and I’m not gonna lie I was rooting for a junk punch from the very beginningAs the story rolled on Tate began to prove that the boy who made Letty’s life a living hell no longer existed In his place was a man who not only wanted to make amends but maybe wanted a little from Letty as well The way he never shirked the fact he spent years being a major douchebag to her and did his best to apologize and reassure her that his intentions were genuine endeared him to me as a readerLetty’s trust didn’t come easy as it realistically shouldn’t and even when her distrust was obvious Tate never gave up “I know there’s nothing I can do to erase this I wouldn’t want to erase it or act like it never happened or pretend that it’s not in your heart as well as right here under my hand I get that this is always going to be there saying you should doubt me But I’m gonna work every day on making it easier for you to ignore I want you to believe in me and I got all the hours in the world to help that happen” Going into this I knew Charlotte Stein writes a decently hot sex scene and this book proved to be no exception She found a way to realistically weave Letty’s insecurities as well as some unexpected insecurities on Tate’s part into some smokin’ hot sexy times There was an unexpected sweetness to the physical relationship between these two and it managed to deepen the storyAs much as I enjoyed this I had a few minor issues This story needed an epilogue in the worst way and I felt the ending was waaaaay too abrupt I’m not saying things aren’t wrapped up it just seemed to happen at the speed of light A little personal background on the characters pre bullying would’ve been appreciated as well Never Sweeter is an angsty sweet read that I can highly recommend Those looking for a truly dark romance may by a little disappointed but Letty and Tate’s story left me with a smile in the end ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review text ↠ Never Sweeter Ô Charlotte Stein

Charlotte Stein Ô Never Sweeter text

Charlotte Stein Ô Never Sweeter text Er classes again just waiting for his chance to make her life hell But when Letty and Tate are partnered up for an assignment on sex in cinema of all things she starts to see a kinder gentler side of him And when she realizes Tate knows about sex than she could ever guess at he soon starts making her blush in a whole new way Tate Sullivan is haunted by regret over his cruelty toward Letty So when she agrees to work with him he seizes his ch Usually when I read books with covers like this one I surreptitiously add them to my 'read' list in a way that the updates wouldn't show up on the homepage and uietly move on But after reading this one I feel the stirrings of a change within me I no longer have that urge to hide the fact that I read romance novels as if it's a shameful shallow activity and worthy of someone's contempt or ridicule I don't think it is any longer Not any when there are authors like Charlotte Stein Sarina Bowen Tamara Morgan Jill Sorenson Elle Kennedy and the likes writing to counter those precise stereotypes taboos cliches and egregious sexual politics that have dominated the landscape of romance novelseroticaNAYA lit for too long So take my advice and don't go by that ripped guy posing like an Abercrombie Fitch model I know the cover does not exactly inspire confidence especially when similar archetypal covers featuring unrealistically attractive Caucasian men with implausibly sculpted pectoral muscles have only added to the bulk of garbage being published these days validating rape culture But this is not one of them In fact if I had a 'romance feministy style' which is a terrible name btw but I'll think of something better shelf I would have tagged this one with that labeling One of those few good romance novels out there thoroughly deserving of a much larger readership than it has to throw in issues like bullying body shaming sexual double standards in movies and not solely for the purpose of creating a situation ripe for romance between our hero and heroine but to treat them as serious issues that are cause for concern in any societyAnother reason behind writing this half baked review is to thank Jackie C Horn of Romance Novels for Feminists And to let the uninitiated romance readers know that if you are sick and tired of books recycling all sorts of blasted gender stereotypes click on that link above If not for her incredible blog I would have given up on romance novels a long time ago And it is solely because of her that I have come across some great authors of contemporaryhistorical romance who are responsible for a much needed paradigm shift in the romance novel industry Thank you Jackie You are fighting the good fight
