The Cover: This cover is one of the HOTTEST covers I have ever seen. When I got the email for the cover reveal I literally gasped out loud. So intimate, so sexy, so beautiful and gah! I will never get over this over!
Basics: Want You was released on June 29th 2018 and is 334 pages long. Genre wise Want You belongs to standalone, contemporary romance and childhood romance.
Description: Bitsy: I might be only nineteen, but I know what I want. It’s Leka Moore. I don’t care that he took me in when he was barely more than a kid himself. I don’t care that he raised me. I don’t care everyone thinks being with him is wrong. I know we belong together, and the only person I need to convince is him.
Leka: I found her in the corner of a dark alley. If I hadn’t taken her with me, she would’ve died that night—or maybe worse. Before I knew it, she became the light in my dark life, the haven from the madness. I watched her grow up. I tried to teach her right from wrong. Now that she’s an adult, I’m feeling things that no good man should ever feel. But then…I’ve never been a good man. I have a chance at redemption by saving her from the greatest danger of all—me.
Overall thoughts: Want You was such a sweet, emotional read! I adore childhood romance stories and this is one of the best one’s I have ever read! Jen Frederick is an amazing writer and she really has a knack for pulling your heartstrings in the best kind of way.
Orphaned and roaming the streets for a local mafia like group, Leka is just trying to watch his back and live. Although he hasn’t really cared about living not until he finds an orphaned little girl. Taking her under his wing he suddenly realizes that he doesn’t want to live and finally has something to live for.
My favorite aspect of Want You is that as readers we basically get to see Leka and Bitsy’s entire story, from when they met when they were young children to how he raised and protected her all the while continuing to work for bad, bad people. And this is what I loved most about Want You because they literally loved and wanted each other for most of their lives and that is something you can’t question or ignore. It’s true love.
With a deep love, slow burning relationship and incredible attraction Leka and Bitsy are definitely one of the most memorable and hottest couples to read about this Summer.
