Book Review: All Grown Up by Sadie Grubor

I have never read a more frustrating couple as Chloe and Leo. And yet, their totally messed up story had me glued to my Kindle for 5 hours straight. I could not stop until I was 100% done. The book starts with a 14 year old Chloe in the summer before her freshman year of high school. Her new neighbor, Mina, becomes her best friend and she instantly has a crush on her older brother Leo. The story quickly progresses to the summer before senior year. Leo has come back for the summer and can't  believe that the beautiful brunette is Chloe. Now he is the one that is crushing.

It takes a few month but their romance soon blossoms and takes off. Until the following summer when it all comes crashing to a halt because Leo was an idiot. Yes I am totally taking the girl's side on this one. He totally screwed up and because of that their relationship ends without any real closure. Over the net several years they try to move on but they both make mistakes that mess with their lives. To be frank, everything becomes a giant clusterfuck. So much drama and they find themselves entangled is a web of lies. It was a wreck, but a wreck I couldn't tear my eyes away from nonetheless. Could they possibly salvage any kind of relationship with each other?

This was a long book and spanned from Chloe's teens to probably late twenties. I enjoyed the story of Chloe's and Leo's sweet teenage love. And I love how hot things got between them when they were adults. I can't say that I loved all of the drama in between, but damn it made for an intense story that I couldn't put down.

"I want to make you so wet and so hot that I make you scream out my name so many times the neighbors come to check on us."
