I went against all I believed in and fell in love with what should have been a one-night stand! I fought it, tried to make up rules to prevent the inevitable, but somehow, he knew all along. He understood what I wanted and was willing to comply. I was the one who took him for granted. I was the one who made him walk away. And now, he’s gone and I’m left with nothing but my thoughts and regrets. He was never supposed to be my happily ever after. But my favorite love story ends in tragedy, so why wouldn’t mine?
I played the white knight, doing what every woman dreams of to win her over, yet it still got me nowhere! But what did I expect? I wasn’t the man she wanted! Nothing I could have done would have landed me the girl. I guess love is funny that way. One minute, you think you have the girl, and the next, you realize you were blinded. Walking away was hard, but watching her with another man was harder. Sometimes you have to pick your battles, and I know when I’ve lost. Love shouldn’t be a game, but I learned someone always loses. For once, I wasn’t the one being selfish, but I was the one who paid the price.
What a great series!
There's no shortage of drama I loved it! and it reminded me of a family soap opera, almost dynasty or Dallas style with the devious mother, and other things that took place.
The series starts with Selfish when Becca and Ashlyn who are best friends take a holiday. A one night stand turns into a dilemma then more when Ashlyn discovers the guy who rocked her world is Ryder, Becca's brother who has come to surprise Becca on her vacation.
The second book is Myself and is Becca and Jaycent's story. Jaycent is Ryders best friend and so they hide their relationship from Ryder, this book too isnt without its dramas. The series then goes back to Ashlyn and Ryders story.
All three books aren't classed as a trilogy but they kind of are. I don't think you could read any of the books as a standalone and Selfless is the conclusion of the first book after it finishing on cliffhanger.
One think I didn't like was about 35% of this book is a repeat word for word of what I had just read in the previous book? if it was told from a different angle I would of had no issue with that but it was the same everything including conversations but from Ashlyn or Ryder's pov instead wheras in the previous book it was Becca or Jaycent's. This was my only negative.
In summary this is a great read from Selfish through to Selfless. I loved the drama's, the hotness, the swoon worthy moments and the characters.
These three books I found myself getting lost in, lost in the whole soap opera feel of it all.
Everything I love about Contemporary romance is In these books. Highly recommended.
Told in dual pov's. Leads to heartwarming happy ever after all round.
