Tales of a Tomboy: Britain (Tales of a Tomboy, #1) by Evan Grace [arc review]
This book took me by surprise in so many different ways. There were things on it that usually make me turn down a book and yet all of it was written so well I just loved it!
I have two rules no dates and no spending the night.
I don’t have time to manage all the complications that come with relationships. And I sure as hell have no desire for any kind of commitment.
My life is fairly uncomplicated, exactly the way I want it...until complicated literally stumbles my way. Britain Lancaster. Clumsy, plain, inexperienced, and the type of woman I tend to avoid.
Unfortunately for me the universe seems to put her on my path around every corner, forcing me to notice her. To look at her. To really...see her.
Pretty soon the universe no longer has to go through all the trouble sending her my way since I find myself looking for her, wanting to get to know her. And the more time I spend with her the more I realize that she’s everything I’m not.
Pure, beautiful, innocent...corruptible.
Now I can’t get her out of my head. I want her in ways that could ruin her, taint her, break her, and I can only hope she’s strong enough to survive this.
To survive me.
The Review: 4.5 Stars
I was expecting Silas to be a total ass. So so so wrong. He was the most caring and loving guy and absolutely perfect for Britain. Yes, he made mistakes, but he realized he was wrong fast enough and fixed it fast enough too. I just adored him.
One of the things I am really not into and don't like reading about is BDSM, so when I realized that was Sila's thing I was petrified that would be the end of the book for me. But Evan Grave managed to write those scenes with a lot of care and she never made any of them hardcore BDSM. So although I still did not enjoy those, I was not put off by it either.
Britain was a great character as well. She is the perfect description of a Tomboy but she is also this really innocent and loving girl and you can't help but want to cuddle with her. No wonder Silas falls for her.
Britain's story is not the happiest, but it is not the saddest either. She has an amazing family and loves what she does. However, an event from her past keeps her from having relationships.
I loved how Britain and Silas grew to know each other and how much they changed for each other too. It was a perfect love story!
