Pulled Under by Sarah Darlington

man-child. noun.
: a grown man who is very immature, therefor considered a man-child

manwhore. noun.
: a promiscuous man who has no regard for his sexual partners or the emotional value of his relationships

Rhett Morgan couldn’t have been more wrong for me. The guy drank beer in the shower, for crying out loud. He had no prospects for the future, had slept with half the women in our beach town of Kill Devil Hills, and had no desire to change his manwhore ways.

And when Ben Turner, the guy I had loved from afar for the past four years, died and I couldn’t get over his death, I desperately needed a distraction. A distraction like Rhett. So I used him for a one-night stand. Because, after all, that’s the only thing a guy like Rhett is good for…right?

***New Adult Romance. This novel is the third book in the Kill Devil Hills series, however it can be read as a standalone. Recommended for 18+

***FREE on Kindle Unlimited!***

I really loved Rhett. He’s funny, sweet, charming and adorable. He also has a bit of a reputation. However, there’s something about Syndey though that makes him stop and completely change course. Right after he meets Sydney (for the second time…the time that counts) he immediately stops his manwhoring ways, falls into a vat of love and tracks down Sydney, who legit just used him for sex since he’s known as the town manslut. *awwwwww*

I loved that Sydney calls him on his bullshit and I really really loved the hotel ice machine room scene. HOLY HELL. I also adored that Sydney began to stand up for herself when it counted the most. Of course, there are times where she’s an idiot and I wanted to shake her, but when it came down to it – she showed up.

While I found the plot somewhat predictable and it really could have really benefited from an epilogue (I needed just a bit more to come down off of the climactic high), there’s a lot to love about this book. The characters are likable, the sex is outstanding, and the player-turned-whipped-puppy-dog gets me every time. This is a New Adult manwhore redemption story that put a smile on my face. 3.75 stars!

[I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review]
