Bender by Stacy Borel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Camden--- oh my!!! *swoon* I adored him. ADORED. Alpha from the top of his head to the soles of his feet, he is bossy, arrogant, and cocky. Just the way I like them.
Keegan is the kind of leading lady I like. Determined, strong willed, willing to bend when she needs to, but not willing to let anyone run all over her. Sassy and smart mouthed, she gives Camden a run for his money.
You know how they say love hits you when you least expect it?? Well, that's Camden and Keegan. Who knew a roommate wanted poster would change their lives forever??
Bender is what I call a sweet read. And although Im not normally a huge fan of sweet reads, this one is up there on the list.
Keegan needs a fresh start. A nursing student trying to pursue her dreams, she is finding herself being held back because her mother leans towards the selfish side. She is left to basically raise her younger sister, after she raised herself. She moves out in an attempt to break free and live her own life. Enter Camden. And as they say, life will never be the same.
Camden and Keegan waste a ton of time fighting the pull they have towards each other, and their back and forth banter is hilarious. Camden isnt used to a challenge, and Keegan refuses to back down. Her smart mouth keeps him on his toes. And I have to say, the honesty between these to was refreshing. Keegan was not afraid to tell him like it was, and vice versa. They always knew where the other one stood.
There was just enough angst in this to keep you reading, but not so much you wanted to throw your kindle across the room. There wasn't any down places and it kept you flipping the pages to see how the story was going to play out. And there was a couple surprises thrown in, to keep you on your toes.
Iam now waiting for the next book. Two of the side characters are up next. Camden's brother Dodger and Keegan's best friend. I loved Dodger--loved him. And I can not wait to get their full story.
