Summary: Once with him was never enough.I am the girl you dislike. The girl you snub at parties. I am the one who flirts with men and knows no boundaries. I am the one you whisper about. The one who has no rules. I am the one who takes and uses without any regret or excuses.
On the outside I am perfect. I have money, looks, and a personality that makes people stand up and take notice, but on the inside I am broken and hurting.
Then I met Cash Marshall.
He wasn’t what I needed, but I wanted him anyway. It was Cash’s carved, muscular body I thought about. It was his cool, confident touch I craved. I swore he would only be a one-night stand, another distraction to take away the pain.
But then our world changed.
Our story is not about love. Love is pretty and sweet and full of niceties. Those no longer exist. Our story is about finding each other again in a world gone crazy. It’s about surviving the impossible when war ravaged our land. It’s about saving each other from the darkness and finding out just how strong we could be.
And maybe, just maybe, along the way, we’ll find love…
Once and for all.
Flirty Review: Four Lip Bites
We go back into the past a little bit to see into the early makings of how Cash and Cat met before the world collapsed around them. Cash is seemingly happy on his family's farm. He's content in life and his role on the farm. He's not searching for anything really but when he meets Cat, I think he finds what he didn't know he wanted. Cat is daring, smug, knows what she wants, and very haunted. Cash sees all of this but still can't fight the pull he feels toward her. And neither can she. She's not ready to get involved with a man like Cash or any man, but she reluctantly falls for him in their brief time together before the fall of the country.
I liked the setup of Cash and Cat's relationship. It was hot and steamy right off the bat and really created such a lust factor for Cash. Umph! I liked how we got into Cat's head and got to see what drove her to do and act the way she did. They whole dynamic of their relationship was great. But it was a little drawn out. Weaver spent half the book with the backstory of how they met and developed their relationship. I felt that this could have been taken care in a more concise manner. I kept waiting for what life was going to be like for them after the fall, but it felt like it took forever.
When we did see the fall and their separation, that's when the story really picked up for me.
The second half of the book was my favorite part. I'm so interested in the world building that Weaver has created after the fall of the US. I loved seeing how her characters survive, what they have to do to make it by. Even if I felt some of it was glossed over, I still delved into the post-apocalyptic world headfirst.
But gah!! Weaver left us on a cliffhanger!! I wanna scream!! What's going to happen to Cash and Cat now? Weaver, you better get the next book written ASAP!! I'm dying over here.
