{REVIEW} Caught Up In You by Colee Firman

Title: Caught Up In You
Author: Colee Firman
Series: Stand-alone
Genre: New Adult, Romance
Publication: December 15th, 2014
Rating: ★★★★☆

Life has a way of shaping you into what it wants you to be, regardless of how much you fight it.

Brantley Prescott is damaged. Scarred by a past she can’t forget. Hiding secrets she’s terrified to share. Searching for a future she doesn’t believe she’ll ever find.

Myles Franco is alone. Burdened by mistakes he’ll never live down. Fostering a deep resentment for the opposite sex. Unleashing his wrath on any girl who gets too close.

Brantley has worked behind the bar long enough to recognize Myles for what he is—a douchebag player with nothing on his mind but keeping a steady stream of girls flowing through his bed. With his messy dark hair, sapphire blue eyes, rock-solid body, and endless tattoos he’s impossible to ignore. But that’s exactly what she plans on doing.

After just one run-in with Brantley, Myles is even more determined to stick to the rules he lives by. She’s mouthy, blunt, and doesn’t back down—no matter how hard he pushes her. She could turn out be the one temptation that drags him down the path he’s been trying to avoid. He won’t let that happen.

Both are content living behind the solid walls they’ve built around themselves. Neither is prepared for what happens when their lives collide.
First of all, I can't believe how quickly I finished this book. It's my first from Colee Firman and therefore I didn't know what to expect. I was really intrigued by the blurb and I'm glad it turned out to be really good!

Brantley Prescott is snarky, brave and admirable. She's had a rough life so far but despite everything she's been through she never gave up and kept fighting. I was actually really surprised when I found out what happened to her - I really didn't expect it! - and that only made me like her more. She's unbelievably strong but at the same time vulnerable. Throughout the book she made some stupid decisions and I definitely wanted to shake her for those but in the end I understood her. She tried to do what's best for her.

Myles Franco. Oh my, where do I even start? I didn't know what to think of him in the beginning because he's the typical douchebag and was really mean to Brantley. He's handsome and the sapphire blue eyes and his stare would probably drive me crazy. I'm glad the author wrote the book in both POV's because thanks to that I knew why he acted the way he did. He, like Brantley, also had a difficult past that he couldn't quite leave behind although he tried.

I liked the cute moments between Myles and Brantley but most of the time they just frustrated me. It was terrible. I just wanted them to work things out but somehow they managed to even drift further apart. Everything would have been easier if only they had talked with each other, ugh! Just one long talk and everything could've been solved ... but then it would have been boring, right? *sigh*

All in all I really enjoyed this book because it kept me curious and interested. The characters were all great and I wanted to know what had happened to them. Like every other book it had its flaws but also some very awesome moments!
