People say the heart wants what it wants and will not be denied.
Those people are fools.
I’m a practiced hand at hiding from the world. The scars I bear are invisible to all but me, and I use them to sustain the walls I’ve built around myself.
He knocked my simple life into disarray and infiltrated my carefully constructed defenses.
The tight control I maintain is at breaking point, and ever since our eyes connected across a lunch hall, my world has been off balance.
I can’t have him, and he can’t have me.
I know it.
He knows it.
I’m just not sure that Tarrant Reigns has ever followed anyone’s rules.
Everything and everyone is against us.
Even his brother.
Caden brought us together, but now he’s standing in our way.
A Young Adult romance with matters of the heart
Two guys & one girl
I was immediately hooked on Dazed, the writing had me captivated.
A college school setting with Laura and her roommate and immediately you are thrust into Laura's thoughts of her past and how she was once one of the popular girls in high school giving you a little bit of her background and the something that happened to her that changed it all, but now in college Laura has her friend and roommate, she study's hard and stays away from the in crowd's and parties and made a new start Laura is happy to a point.
When two new students start college and both happen to be hot brothers it has the girls in college buzzing but once both boys see Laura they both have their eyes on her for completely different reasons of their own but Laura doesn't like attention drawn to her anymore she even dresses differently from how she used to avoid attention and isn't interested in them but they see her.
Caden befriends Laura and it's just that, a friendship until for his own reasons he asks Laura to be his fake girlfriend.
A huge dilemma hits when Laura realises she has feelings for his brother Tarrent but has to keep their fake relationship secret and neither of them follows through with their feelings or attraction.
Torrent is a huge player, a complete opposite to his brother Caden, he's the bad boy with tattoos and the more Laura begins to see him with other girls it hurts but at the same time she wants to keep her promise to Caden and be the pretend girlfriend.
So as you can see there is a whole lot of complications and matters of the heart for these young adults. There are dramas, twists and turns, typical high school immaturity and all the character's frustrated me at some point.
I was a little disappointed this was a college read and more young adult, the cover screams hot and dangerous when in reality it's just teen dramas and life choices.
A good read but not what I expected.

They say, ‘Be true to yourself and follow your heart.’
But what if the two things aren’t mutually exclusive?
If only one half is being honest, can you ever really be complete?
For years I was my own oppressor until I found my absolute.
He was the addiction I didn’t want to fight, one that nearly broke me.
But I knew, when it came to Casper, I was never going to be a survivor.
I enjoyed drowning too damn much.
I’m told if you love someone you should let them go. Nobody tells you that doing so will break your soul in half.
My life was easy when I had the college boyfriend who ticked all the right boxes. The night I laid eyes on Enoch Carter everything changed.
I thought I was doing the right thing. Now I know I was wrong. I don’t know how to retrace my steps, how to repair the distance, fix the mess I made.
I never meant to fall in love.
I stayed away because she was off limits. I broke the code, then left her bed without a backward glance.
All the black marks on my heart would make her dirty and I won’t allow that.
Friendship is all I can offer. Even if she doesn’t want my friendship, she needs it now more than ever.
I shouldn’t love her.
I can’t love her.
