4 Wrecked CROWNS
This is the first book by this author that I have read, and I was not disappointed. This book is an angsty friends to lover, bother’s best friend, second chance romance all rolled into one. Easton and Kota are everything. I could not get enough of them. Victoria constructed a beautifully layered love story that will give you all the feels. I challenge you to read this and have it not hit literally all your emotions.
“She’s looking at me as if she wants to rip my beating heart out with her bare hands… as if my very presence both pains and angers her.”
I loved Dakota she was the anti girlie girl. She’s completely badass working in her father’s garage being one of the best mechanics. And she rides a motorcycle to boot. But at the same time, she is utterly gorgeous but doesn’t let it get to her. She doesn’t even realize the effect she has on the male population. She has been in love with Easton since she was a little girl. They were best friends and had a special bond, they understood each other on another level, one that no one could touch. Life unfortunately through a huge wrench in her goal of being with Easton.
“I’m not leaving until you take all of your hate out on me. Let me feel it. All of it. Every dirty look. Every nasty fucking word. I will have it all before I leave. Stop hiding from me. It. Won’t. Work.”
Gah Easton is perfection. He is so sweet and caring he’s always trying to do the right thing but sometimes it doesn’t work out how he hoped it would. Easton has this deep level of sexy that you can feel from the moment he enters a room. Kota as much as she tries is still affected by this brooding bad boy with a heart of gold. Easton was also desperately in love with Kota growing up. They circled each other for years being friends but wanting more. Life has a funny way of interfering. When he comes back, it’s as if nothing has changed his feelings for her have not diminished in the slightest and he is determined to get her to see that.
“You can’t tell me not to kiss you.” I moan against her parted lips. “Not after knowing who has had you. You’re mine, Kota. Always have been.”
This book run’s your emotions through the wringer. All the twist and turns have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see how it will all play out. I truly loved every angsty minute of this story. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to throw my Kindle on multiple occasions. There is only one aspect of the story that I could not get on board with and that’s why this isn’t 5 Stars for me. I won’t go into what it was because I don’t want to spoil it for others. Everything else in regards to this story was perfection and I would highly recommend reading it.
“The feeling I have in this very moment, after not seeing her for so long, will haunt me
forever, reminding me why I left to begin with.”
For as long as I can remember, Easton Crews has been off-limits. As much as it kills me, that’s never going to change.
After his little disappearing act three years ago, then suddenly showing up out of nowhere, I shouldn’t want anything to do with him.
It doesn’t matter how beautiful he still is. Or how close we once were. It shouldn’t matter that my entire body lights on fire with need whenever he gets close.
He chose the worst possible time to leave without so much as a goodbye.
However, just like the first day he walked into our home, I’m drawn to him, needing him near me just as badly as I need air to breathe, and I can’t stand it.
I want to hate him. I know I should hate him. But hating him is the last thing he’ll let me do.
I push, he pulls harder, until I’m completely wrapped up in him, my mind lost in the one person who is forbidden—the one person I’ve always loved, even when he belonged to someone else.
Easton was never meant to be mine. It took me years to come to terms with that and now that I finally have, he’s here, right in front of me, more irresistible than ever.
The part I fear the most about that—he’s the one person capable of completely wrecking my world.
