Life is random...
19-year-old Jess Donovan knows better than most that life is random. Her mom is dead, and she's on her own, patching together a living as a waitress when a car crashes through the restaurant where she works. In two seconds, she loses her job, watches her best friend hauled away in an ambulance...and meets Tyler Smith, one of the hottest, most fascinating--and mysterious guys she's ever met.
Both for the good and the bad...
Within days, Jess is swept up into the mesmerizing force that is Tyler. Their every touch sizzles, every kiss dissolves them both, and the sex is...fierce. But there's more to Tyler than his hypnotic eyes. He's adrift, too, and his body--and his soul--are covered with scars. How can she find herself with a guy who is lost himself?
Until you take charge....
Jess is determined to find her way, and make a life that is better than the one she was given. But how?
19 year old sex and relationships aren't something I'd describe as fierce... I think its because I'm past the age when intimate and sexual relationships between teenagers aren't that appealing to me anymore. The story is written well but I wasn't really satisfied with the "big reveal" since it built up to a fairly flat way of coming out with it.
The characters were great, I liked them both for their personalities which stood out the most to me which was upsetting because this story has so much potential that I don't think the author really gave them enough credit or page time for how good they could be. Which also ties in with how short the story itself is. As a short story its good but it has a lot of potential to be so much more. I don't think it really necessary that the book needed to be cut up into multiple novellas when the author could have written a full novel out of this one. Still I thought Random was a good read. I hope the author does more with it in the near future.
