Product description

Product Description

The #1 Bestseller. A heartbreakingly beautiful love story by Australia's favourite new romance writer and author of the #1 bestseller Hooker: J.L. Perry.

***FULL LENGTH STANDALONE READ WITH HEA***

Warning - Contains coarse language and sexual content. This book is recommended for 18 years and over.

My name is Carter Reynolds. I was born a bastard and I'll die a bastard. I learnt it at a young age, and nothing and nobody can change that. I'm on a one-way path of destruction, and God help anyone who gets in my way. I hate my life. Actually, I hate pretty much everything.

That's until I meet the kid next door. Indi-freakin'-ana. My dislike for her is instant. From the moment I lay eyes on her, she ignites something within me. She makes me feel things I thought I was incapable of feeling. I don't like it, not one bit. When she looks at me with her big, beautiful, haunting green eyes, it's like she can see into the depths of my soul. It freaks me the hell out. She's like sunshine and rainbows in my world of gloom and doom. I hate sunshine and rainbows.

****


I'm Indiana Montgomery. My friends call me Indi. Despite losing my mum at the age of six, I have a wonderful life and great friends. My dad more than makes up for the fact that I only have one parent. I'm his little girl, the centre of his world. I adore him.

When Carter Reynolds moves in next door, my life takes a turn for the worse. He's gorgeous, sinfully hot, but that's where my compliments end. He seems hell-bent on making my life miserable. He acts tough, but when I look into his eyes I don't see it. I see hurt and pain. To me, he seems lost.

I should hate him for the way he treats me, but surprisingly I don't. If anything, I feel sorry for him. I want to help him find peace. Help him find the light that I know is buried somewhere within his darkness, but he won't have a bar of it.

He's warned me time and time again to stay away, but I can't. I'm drawn to him for some reason. He's always referring to himself as a bastard. That may be true, but to me, he's more like a beautifully misunderstood bastard. Whether he likes it or not, I refuse to give up on him.

Carter and Indiana's story is told in dual POV, and in two parts, spanning over 8 years.

Omg Don't be mislead by the title of this book I was I thought yes bad boy oh how wrong I was but in a bloody fantastic way......??Carter Reynolds is brought up single handed by his mother when she gets married and they move in with him things change. Being told by his grandfather and now by his stepdad he's a "Barstard" he totally believes it that's until he meets the girl next door Indiana Montgomery.....The story starts when he's 17 and she's 15 and that also put me off a little has in another teenage romance again?? Boy wrong again Indi is also brought up by just her father losing her mum at just 6 to a brain Tumour when they meet it starts out has a love hate relationship but grows into a beautiful friendship that reaches paths of devastation along the way. I totally loved the way the author made me hate her and sob but then love her and smile. Brilliantly written, this story pulls you in and messes with your emotions but I could read it all over again. It is a must read!

Carter is raised by his mom and never met his dad. They went to meet his grandparents and was hoping for a joyous reunion. What they got was his grandpa calling him a "Bastard". That one word changed how he viewed himself.

At the age of 17, Carter moves to a new town because his mom got married. His step dad views him as a bastard and a burden. He knows once he turns 18 he is leaving his house and it can't come soon enough. When they move in he meets Indiana his next door neighbor. He notices her right away. They share a love/hate relationship. Indiana sees through his facade and breaks down his walls. There friendship is filled with ups and downs. One night changes all that and Carter is scared to stay and see how things will go between them.

Carter gets a call 5 yrs later from his mom saying his step father is dead and she needs him. He goes to be with her during this difficult time. He has not forgot about Indiana. She holds his heart and always will. He will have to face his past and see what his future holds.

This is the first book I have read by this author and it was incrediable. I loved the characters and this story. It draws you in and puts your heart throw the wringer.I did not want to put my kindle down. This is a "Must" read and make sure you have tissues handy. I will definately be reading more books from this author.

I absolutely loved this story. Carter Reynolds was a very happy child until he learned he was a bastard and what that actually meant - from that time on he became a real bastard, bad attitude, anger, and all that that entails. When he, his mom, and step father (the real bastard) move in next door to a beautiful, petite, green-eyed beauty named Indiana (Indi) Montgomery and her dad Ross, Carter's attitude comes out to play. He loves to get her riled up and begins to have feelings for her; however, his anger still controls his life and actions. Loved Indi's best friend Megan, his grandmother - loved all the characters.
Will they finally get together - you will be glad you one-clicked this story
