What happens when two people who don’t believe in love, happen to fall madly into the most beautiful relationship they could ever imagine? A train wreck.

When twenty-year-old Kendall Jordan transfers clear across country to Garrison University, the last thing she’s looking for is a one-night stand. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what, gorgeous, Cruise Elton offers.

Kendall has long since come to realize that love is an illusion that never lasts, and Cruise couldn't agree more—but something deep inside her wants him all for herself. So, Kendall devises a seat of the pants plan to “play the player” and proposes that Cruise tutor her in becoming a female version of himself, Garrison University’s own playboy.

Real feelings begin to emerge, and neither Kendall nor Cruise know how to classify them. Everything they once thought they knew is redefined as they discover, in one another, Someone to Love.

Enticing, exciting, and oh so swoon-worthy. Addison Moore knows how to deliver a story full of lust and love that makes your heart pound.

Kendall Jordan just arrived at Garrison. It's Christmas Eve and her moms best friends son was supposed to secure her a dorm room. Due to his lack of responsibility, he's failed and Kendall is left high and dry with no where to go. Soon Cruise Elton, the school player, is offering her a bed. Will Kendall be used by Cruise, or will she be the one with the last laugh?

I loved both Kendall and Cruise. Kendall is an innocent little virgin when we first meet her, but you would never guess this by the way she handles herself. Cruise is the complete opposite. He's the player who constantly has females flocking around him, but underneath this playboy exterior is a really sweet and caring guy.

I absolutely adored Someone To Love. While there were some steamy, not-appropriate-for-the-younger-audience scenes, the story was much more than just sex. What started out as Kendall wanting to become the female Cruise turned into a love story of epic proportions. I felt like Kendall and Cruise were both afraid of what was happening. They took some time to really get to know each other before jumping into anything more than friends.

The pacing of this story was just right. There was a slow build that kept me turning the pages. As the story progressed, it started to move quicker and didn't slow down once the climax hit. I made some guesses as to how the ending would play out and I was, for the most part, correct. However, the way the ending came about was completely unexpected.

Overall, Someone To Love was a sexy, fun, and enticing read that I never wanted to walk away from. It is most definitely not for younger readers, but if you are over 18 and looking for a college age romance that will take your breath away, you've found the right book.

Addison Moore is the author of young adult fiction and romance. She has worked as therapist on a locked psychiatric unit for almost a decade. She is the mother of four wonderful children. She resides on the West Coast with her family and two dogs where she eats too much chocolate and stays up way too late. When she's not writing, she's reading.

After I read Beautiful Disaster I`ve been reading more of these kind of books, because I love a good love story with no love triangles. You can`t just go by a bad boy book.
If you haven`t read it yet, you could try The Game Changer by J. Sterling(?)
But on this book, I`m most definitely going to read it.
