I’m Blake McQueen, daughter of Miles McQueen: businessman, politician, all around upstanding member of the community.
I’m told that name means something, but well, I’ve pretty much doused it in petrol, set it on fire, and taken a shit on it for good measure. I like to think of myself as a walking middle finger.
My name is now synonymous with booze, parties, sex, and drugs. I have to read the newspaper in the morning just to see where I was, possibly who I fucked, and judge my state of inebriation based on how much tit or minge is splashed across page five.
Judge me all you like, love me, hate me. I don’t give a fuck.
Life’s a party and you should never stop dancing.
But even the sweetest of highs has it’s low. There is only so high you can go before you fall, and fall I did, right into the arms of the only man that could possibly stop me from crashing and burning. I’ve always been untouchable. I’ve never cared enough to be touchable. Until now.
Love is the most destructive drug of all.
This is my first book by LP Lovell and I couldn’t be happier that I read it. I was immediately drawn in by the blurb. A rebellious party girl who is all about alcohol, drugs and sex? Umm, yes, please!
I knew from first two sentences of the prologue that this was going to be an adventurous ride and it definitely was.
“Addiction and love. Two sides of the same coin.”
Blake McQueen is a trust fund baby. The daughter of a politician, who she rebels against. She is that party socialite that the tabloids live for. She cares about drugs, sex and alcohol. Not always in that particular order. One might immediately stereotype Blake as a stuck up girl who lives the life she does because of Daddy issues. While some of that might be true, what we discover is that Blake is a sassy, witty and beautiful woman who is just trying to figure out what she wants in life. Unfortunately for her, what she wants at the moment is destructive to herself.
I wasn’t expecting the humor in this book and Blake takes the cake with some of the best lines.
“He drags a hand through his dark hair, bordering on messy, and damn, I’d love to run my fingers through it. Preferably while I sit on his face.”
“So, what happens when you meet this sacred man that makes you want to strip naked, climb him like a tree and high five his face with your vagina?”
Now that I type this out, it looks like I might have an obsession with Blake’s vagina getting some action. Oh well, I’ll own it.
When Blake meets Rhett Torres, their attraction is undeniable. Their story is a roller coaster. Rough, edgy, funny, easy. I know that doesn’t make sense but it works for them. I like that Rhett didn’t try to change her. She saw her for who she is and accepted it. There are defiantly some swoon worthy moments from Rhett when you don’t expect it.
“She’s beautiful in every way, but she’s damaged, like a butterfly with a crumpled wing. On some level, I think she needs me, and perhaps I need her to need me.”
The writing just flowed easily and I read this book in one sitting. My emotions were all over the place. A lot of the time I was laughing. More often then that I was clinching my thighs from some seriously HOT scenes. SERIOUSLY. HOT.
Thank you for an awesome book, LP. I can’t wait to read more from you. Also, thanks for a seriously hilarious Author Bio. I’m that person as well. 😉
