"Nate West. Hollywood bad-boy. Television megastar. Womanizer. Basically everything I hate about the male species rolled into one handsome package. And yet…I want him."
Ellie Turner is a lesbian. She has tattoos, short hair, and a ‘don’t-mess-with-me-attitude.’ She knows who she is, loves who she is, and couldn’t care less what the rest of the world thinks of her. And since she has the most kick-ass best friend on the planet, Noah Clark, even when family drama gets in the way, nothing can offset her happy-go-lucky demeanor.
Until television star Nate West comes along. All thick muscle and alpha-male testosterone. When Ellie meets him on an airplane the only thing Nate West should be good for is a brand new profile picture on Facebook. Right? Wrong. Turns out he’s good for so much more.
This man is going to flip everything Ellie thought she knew about herself upside down.
***NA Romance. This novel is the second book in the Kill Devil Hills series, however it can be read as a standalone. Recommended for 18+
I am officially hooked on the Kill Devil Hills series! I am in love with the characters, the writing, the storyline, EVERYTHING! I really enjoyed the first book of the series, Kill Devil Hills, but I wasn't sure what to think about this one when I read the synopsis. I thought Ellie was pretty awesome in book one, but to make her a lesbian no more? I wasn't completely sold. Let me tell you, Sarah Darlington made it completely believable and it worked so well.

Ellie meets Nathanial on her way to California to see her dead brother, Ben. Say what!? Yes we learned in book one he was still alive. She is so stressed out and their chance, steamy meeting on the plane has her so confused on her identity. She has never been attracted to men before and now suddenly she is. Lesbian, remember? But there is something about Nate that she can't deny. It is more than an attraction, it's a pull and a wanting so deep. Once the plane ride is over, she thinks she will never see him again, but fate steps in a puts him in her path again. Ellie has to work her way through her confusion and longing to come to terms that she in fact wants Nathanial.
I absolutely adore Nathanial. He is so sweet and caring, but can get down and dirty when it counts. He is the perfect match to Ellie's spunkiness. This book pulls in the characters from the first book. So we get more of Noah and Georgie, who are just too cute. I really like "seeing" everyone again.
This book kinda, sorta ends in a cliffhanger. Nothing major happens, but I didn't feel that Nathanial and Ellie's story was quite finished. The next book is Sydney's story, I (hopefully) think with Rhett. I guess I just have to get my fill of Ellie and Nathanial in their book, Pulled Under. I can't wait to meet up with everyone again!
