[Review] Relentless - Cassia Leo

Released: February 22nd, 2013

Claire Nixon is a twenty-year-old college dropout with a secret.

To Claire, Adam Parker is just another flirty customer at the cafe, until a chance encounter and seemingly innocent comment spurs a bet between them. The bet is simple: If Adam can get Claire to reveal the secret that made her drop out of college, she has to re-enroll. If he doesn't succeed, she gets to keep her secret and he has to stop stalking her at the cafe.

Claire thinks she has this one in the bag. She's perfected the art of forgetting her past. But she isn't prepared for Adam's relentless pursuit or for him to share his own secrets. And she's definitely not prepared for her rock star ex, and her secret, to come banging down her door one year later.

"I'm beginning to understand that we all must be walking around with secrets that eat away at us, driving us to do foolish things in the name of keeping those secrets buried."

The book was honestly a pretty great read. It was pretty funny and quite easy to finish. It's the kind of book you read in your spare time. The romance is great and well, more or less swoon-worthy (especially with Adam!). The book was enjoyable, fun-almost-exciting read. I liked the characters and the plot was quite great. The secret was unexpected - which was really awesome since I can usually pretty much guess it. Only things I didn't like about the book was the pace of it, since it was really fast, and slightly about their relationship.

ADAM PARKER!!!! Now I want me a piece of his hot ass. He's really hot. Like tamale hot ;) I've never tasted that but I'm pretty damn sure that it's freaking spicy! Anyways, he was really sweet and considerate towards Claire. He tried to open up to her and he seemed to genuinely care for her condition and everything. With his easy sense of humor, and horribly corny jokes, plus his beyond lovable personality, I just fell in love with him.

Claire was closed off in the beginning. Scratch that, she was closed off until she had no other choice but to tell her secret. It really fucking pissed me off since it seemed like Adam loved her more than she did him. Adam was the more open one in the relationship. He's the one who actually tries. She was pretty cool I guess with her slightly snarky attitude and her easiness with others despite whatever happened in the past.

I present to you a joke, courtesy of Adam...

"What did the pony say when he had a sore throat?"


"I apologize. I'm a little horse."

I'm sorry, I just couldn't help myself teehee.
