I believe in fairy tales — the kind where a knight in shining armor sweeps me off my feet. Coming from a broken home, fairy tales housed the hope I clung to. Never in my life did I imagine two knights coming into my life— two knights that wore very different armor.
A rockstar versus a lawyer.
Fast and furious versus deliberate and calculated.
Intense and passionate versus strong and devoted.
Chaos versus stability.
I fell in love with one in the craziness of a concert.
I fell in love with the other in the silence of his compassion.
And now I am Torn Between Two.
This is the first time I’ve read anything from this author and now, she’s got me hooked! I mean right from the very first chapter- I read the entire book in one sitting, I didn’t stop until I finished it and once that happened I went online, bought the next book and read that book until that book finished. Can you see me rambling on and on? I loved this book! I don’t usually like love triangle romances.. I mean someone always ends up getting hurts at the end..tsk tsk.. but I loved this book!
Now, for the review part of this book..where do I start?
Samantha Clarke aka Sammy or Sam, aged 23 is a pastry sous chef extraordinaire at Sheldon’s Italia and a huge fan of Hawke Calvin, the lead from the band Def Deception. She has ‘set’ goals in life (To study at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts), she’s serious and a lad odd, yet compassionate, empathetic and honestly… a romantic at heart.
Hawke Calvin is the green-eyed rocker that epitomizes all things rock and roll. He’s audacious, dark, gutsy, presumptuous at times, yet has a sweet, gentle side that harbors the raw pain and sadness from his past.
Josh Stanton goes to law school by day and is a shoe sales man by night. He’s the brown-eyed man with an appearance that screamed seriousness, good boy, guy next door but he was a jokester.
Hawke has a beauty that’s instant and ruggedly hot while Josh is, like the author said, beautifully handsome.
Samantha and Hawke’s ‘relationship’ is dangerous, fast and naughty whereas her ‘relationship’ with Josh feels safe,comforting and tender. Josh and Sam have this banter between them thats really cute and light hearted with a dash of sensuality whereas with Hawke, everything is fast and raw.
Sam bonded with both Hawke and Josh because they had similar affinities to heartache and betrayal that she went through.
Even with the fame and glory, Hawke was lonely. Over drinks he tell her ” I’ll tell you about my scum if you tell me yours“. And thats when everything came pouring out..all the inner secrets and I think thats when they built this unbreakable bond between them that was going to be there regardless of whatever happens.
Josh and Sam share the bond of losing their own mother. On a lighter note I must say that Josh, dear Josh, his ‘pick up’ lines are so cheesy yet so endearing. He’s the type of guy who’ll always be there for you.. and a little spoiler alert here- he was! I was hating Hawke for abandoning Sam and was silently..ok..fine.. quite loudly cursing Hawke and cheering Josh!
FYI… Major Cliffhanger!! Be prepared!
This book is all about Choices… and I for one am so glad I made the Choice of reading this book!
