  1. There are so many things wrong with this book I try not to be mean or harsh in reviews if I can help it, but this book I can t even it just frustrates the crap out of me 1 This book reads like an unedited first draft And actually, it reads like the author s first book You know, that first book that you write that you absolutely LOVE and is PERFECT and is your baby, etc And then you put it up and read it a year later and realize that while the story isn t a bad idea, the writing is crap, and that [...]

  2. So far, this is possibly the worst book I ve ever read The spelling, grammar, punctuation, over use of terms and things, the immaturity, the the abundance of cussing are all slowly killing my brain And the characters are so insanely stupid I feel no connection to them whatsoever All I m seeing from their narration is OMGhe s SO HOT Theirs anhe.een my legswhenever I see him or I am SO FUCKED This is the TENTH TIME I ve had a hard on today just by being near her FUCK Literally Over and over again [...]

  3. Disclaimer My thoughts on this book are my sole opinion and mine alone Please be respectful and mindful of that I cannot believe I actually finished this one, this doesn t even deserve to be rated, it was that bad I m afraid my ability to even function properly has been switched off, so excuse this poorly written, hastily thrown together review that I wrote as soon as I finished the book This was experience, shall we say An experience that I wish I kind of could get back What turned me off on th [...]

  4. This will teach me not too look at my friends reviews before I purchase I book.Ok, let s start with the good stuff The story was very sweet Very much a love at first sight plot, which generally isn t my thing, but Ellie and Gunner are just cute enough to make it semi ok She has been verbally abused by her mom to the point that she doesn t think anyone will ever really want her, and Gunner is just the guy to prove to her that she s wrong Their whole relationship is a very straight line he wants h [...]

  5.

  6. Oh man, this book was so bad I can t even begin to describe how bad, I knew from the first page that it wasn t going to win any awards but I held out hope for the storyline Even that was bad, I didn t connect with any of the characters, the awkward dialogue was just that awkward No one talks like that, and the main character Ellie, I just wanted to slap her Talk like a normal person The grammatical errors were abundant, normally I can look past these if the story is good but I felt like bashing [...]

  7. I rarely write a review, but I had to speak on this one and air my grievances I WANTED to like this book I really did I loved the blurb about the book but that s where the love starts, chokes and dies.I have read books with horribly written characters but I think these characters take the cake, the frosting, the bowl, the utensils, even THE CASH to purchase the ingredients to make the damn cake The characters were short sighted, immature, weak minded, insecure, over emotional, irrational, and im [...]

  10. What demons drove me to finish this thing that I wouldn t even call a book I have no idea, but I promise I will find out and hunt them down to make them pay for this damn torture I hate to write my first review and make it negative, but this leaves me no other choice All the way throughout the book I was sitting there likeYou all may ask why Well, my fellow readers let me tell you why.1 The characters inspire my inner serial killer and fuel the voices inside my head whispering to commit multiple [...]

  11.

  13. IDNFingis.Life.o.ort.Eight chapters and nothing is happening It needs an impossible amount of editing I did like the story in the blurb, but yeah No.The word fuck is used 851 times.The word shit 344 times.I m not going to rate it because in all honesty, I don t think rating something without finishing it is fair But maybe it s for the best, maybe it s just not my kind of book, and it would have screwed up the overall rating of it I really gave it a chance, though.

  15. Spoilers Be warned, this a complete rant.Okay, first off I ll just say Wanted got two stars from me just for Jeff and Ari alone Only interesting story in the book And that s sad to say, because they re not the main characters Anyways, the story begins with Ellie at seven years old, listening to her drunk mother say that no guy will ever want her and she should be prepared to live a lonely life And so, I felt alright this book has some potential Note I bought the book due to a friends recommendat [...]

  16. I literally had to put this book down after 25 pages The writing was absolutely terrible there were spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes, and every other word was an expletive It seems like a ten year old wrote this It obviously never saw an editor I rarely stop reading a book, especially after so few pages, but I honestly couldn t bear to continue Don t waste your money on this

  17. I really enjoyed this book i wasn t sure how I felt at first with the pov switching back and forth but then I started to look forward to them This story had me happy, mad, furious, sad, happy again All in all I just fell in love with the characters and can t wait for the next book

  18. Simple and sweet, a story about first love Not an original story line Pretty standard high school college love but enjoyable all the same There were definitely parts that were filled with enough romance to keep the story going.The books follows the story of Ellie an american High school graduate who has been verbally abused by her alcoholic mum all her life Ellie meets gunner, her brothers best friend a tattooed football player his character is the hero of the book, attempting to show Ellie thro [...]

  19. This was absolutely horrible I ve only once before returned a book and now this is two Save your time and money, I promise you the editing will drive crazy the story line is weak and the characters are in some serious need to be further developed The positive side is it did start off with promise I wonder if any of these other people who gave reviews really read it at all I say to the author please get some beta readers that love what your books can be and let them help you and also invest in ha [...]

  20. Man oh man Where do I start First off, this book needs to be edited, hardcore Just tons of misspellings going on Secondly, it s just too freakin wordy I liked the idea of the characters and Drew Gunner was a sweet guy but everything just seemed to move too fast and be a little too far fetched The dialogue didn t seem natual at all Besides the swearing which was plentiful, it was sometimes painful cringe inducing reading the conversations between the characters Then you read this insanely long bo [...]

  21. Extremely sorry to say I hated this book I never give up on a book no matter how horrible it is I still finish it, but I couldn t wait to drop this book I loved the story line girl falling in love with brothers best friend Sadly this book was so disappointing The heroine elli is a weakling who cries at the drop of the hat and just because her mom has been abusing her nothing physical but through words she doesn t trust any guy and thinks all guys cheat then why the hell does she go near a guy ca [...]

  22. Had to give up on this book1 I m pretty sure it was written by a fourteen year old.2 No plot No story No characters No one is compelling to read about, just four flat, one dimension characters and a few interchangeable ancillary friends 3 Too vs to You re vs your Their vs there Not to mention endless, endless typos Learn the basics of the English language before trying to write a book using it If learning the basics isn t an option, get a proofreader or editor.4 I have no problem with profanity, [...]

  23. SPOILLLEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRSSSSSSSSSSSS THIS BOOK SERIOUSLY MADE ME WANT TO PUKE, SCREAM, YELL IN FRUSTRATION, GIGGLE LIKE A LITTLE GIRL AND GRIN LIKE CRAZY It has seriously and officially given me a freaking personality disorder This book is pretty much the corniest, most intense I thing have ever read The amount of drama these four characters get into in the span of one whole book is RIDICULOUS Seriously imagine every single contemporary new adult young adult drama you could think of made into a [...]

  24. This book was horriblel supposed friends slept with one another whilst in college and cheat and then hooking up with each other and living happily ever after Yeah a lot of rubbish

  25. I loved this book I can t wait until the next book comes out I know from the other reviews that this is a hit or miss book Part of the reason that many people don t like it is that they don t get connected to the characters For me that was an easy thing The way Ellie feels about Gunner is something I can relate to The feelings of insecurity and especially the feeling of waiting for the floor to drop But the way Gunner treats her is breathtaking It s the way every girl dreams to be treated like a [...]

  26. I really enjoyed Wanted the characters are great and I love the plot also the joint POV s between Ellie and Gunner But I must say if Ellie had said she had push her legs together to stop the ache any I was about to scream I mean sort it out yourself or ask Gunner Also I want a 2nd book as I have to know how all goes between Jefferson and Ari Also I made a Fan made Pinterest board pinterest yaindieprincess

  27. I was pretty sure my eyes were going to get stuck in the top of my head, from all the eye rolling I was doing while reading this book I m completely confused as to how this book managed to rake in a 4 star rating I felt like 1 star was being generous This was honestly the WORST book I have ever read, and the first time I have considered asking for my money back from Barnes and Noble The only reason I finished this book was because of my crazy compulsion to finish each book I read, no matter how [...]

  28. Ellis n drew that guy is tooooooo perfect I like my characters to read with shades of gray n I don t mean like fifty of them but atleast some variation that makes them real believable its a college mushy romance and I get all the reason why its the way it is but I just couldn t get over the repetitive factor of some portions in the book at one point I just felt pathetic for drew.he s always literally begging ellie for her to understand him or accept his love for her.I get that she has self est [...]

  29. Wow best book boyfriend ever Everybody needs and wants a Gunner Mathews Yes this book is full of writing errors but the story the author tells is an absolute beautiful story, one that i can t wait to follow Thank you Kelly Elliot, you warmed my heart with this story LOVED
