Review

Ten Year Crush is a beautiful love story about two people who loved each other as long as they can remember.

Gabby is a sweet girl who is also strong and feisty. She is loyal and a good friend, a good sister and a good daughter. Gabby is the girl next door, the good person we all would like to know.

Cam is also a very loyal and dedicated person. He is the hot guy all the girls and ladies of all ages have a huge crush on. He is the hot guy we all crave and the one who melts us.

The best thing about this book was the characters. They all fit perfectly in the story. Their personalities blend beautifully and create a nice and lovely environment. Josh and Tiffany are very good supporting characters. Tiffany is the outgoing girlfriend who always has Gabby’s back and who has such a unique way with words..Oh Tiffany’s toasts are memorable! Josh is a very good friend to Cam, but also a very good brother to Gabby. He manages to maintain that invincible line uncrossed. He doesn’t meddle but speaks his mind from time to time.

The writing is good. There is a nice flow throughout the book, with no loopholes and no abnormal transitions. There was a point in the story that I didn’t like, because the involved characters moved too fast. You may have no problem with it, but I did.

In general, the book was good. However, the story as it was presented is not original at all. Like I said before, the book is well written. But the events that occurred in the book are very predictable. It felt like many other books I’ve read in the past. The first half of the book was extremely better than the other half. The second half, though, was too predictable.

In conclusion, Toshia Slade seems to be a good and talented author. Ten Year Crush is a beautiful romantic book with many sexy elements that will leave you hot and bothered… I would simply prefer more original scenes..

So, 4 Gorgeous Stars go to Ten Year Crush..........




Excerpt

Gabby walks by the table toting some surfer boy behind her. Anger ignites in my blood and I grind my molars to keep me from doing something stupid, and then grab my beer and take a deep pull.

Cool it, dude. Josh’s baby sister. And it’s her birthday.

Then that damn song comes on. I sit back and watch them out of the corner of my eye. When Gabby pulls him closer, I grip my bottle tighter, my muscles tense.

Mother. Fucker. Now she’s grinding on his leg. And Josh and Tiffany are bickering with each other. I can’t deal with any of this shit. I drain my beer and head to the bar for another one without a word.

“Motivation” by Kelly Rowland starts playing. Do they have to play every fuck-me song out there?

I lean back against the bar and chug my beer. Three drinks and it’s gone. I order another and head back to the table.

Gabby has her back to the asshat now and she’s doing this thing with her hips, moving lower and lower. If I wasn’t seeing red, I’d be rearranging myself.

Damn, she can move those hips.

Isn’t Josh going to do anything about this dude dry-fucking his sister on the dance floor?

Turning again, she’s back to fucking his leg. His hands move to her ass and that’s it, white-hot fury overtakes me. I slam my bottle down on the table making Tiffany jump. Josh gives me a what-the-fuck-is-your-problem look.
