Carter Hastings was only supposed to be a fling,
A summer of fun, excitement, pleasure
And, it was…
It’s hard to walk away,
To leave the one man,
Who resuscitates me.
But I did.
He didn’t reciprocate my feelings.
He didn’t love me.
Resuscitate Me by Leddy Harper was such an angst-filled read. It was a roller-coaster of a ride. The back and forth had me wanting to throw my e-reader. But, oh what a read it was, even as it drove me crazy, I could not put it down.
Kara is spending some time with family to offer a helping hand. But she has a life to go back too once the summer is over. While there, she meets Carter, the owner of the local gym. Carter grabs her attention, among other things, and does not let go. There were times she seemed weak and vulnerable and at others strong and confident.
Carter. What can you say about Carter? At times, I wanted to strangle him. Just reach in and strangle him. To say I did not like him while reading is a major understatement, but still I could not put the book down. I had to know what happened next. He is a total alpha male who oozes confidence and sexiness, but could be a real jerk.
Though I want to blame Carter, they were both so stubborn and neither wanted to give in. I found myself many times wondering how it would work out in the end. They were constantly back and forth with each other and though their sex scenes were hot, they were cold with each other just as many times.
But when they were together, they were hot and steamy. The chemistry between these two was instant and scorching. They started as friends with benefits, but how long can you keep feelings out of it? But what can come from it when its only temporary anyway?
This story had all the feels. My heart felt like it would explode at any minute. And I loved every word of it. I was captivated from start to finish. Definitely worth the read!
I give Resuscitate Me by Leddy Harper 4-stars!
