“Love is an earthquake. It comes when you least expect it. It rips the ground clear away. Right out from under you.”
The day Lia Smart met Grayson Walker, eight years ago, was the day she fell helplessly in love with him. Coincidentally, it was the same day Grayson fell in love with someone else: Lia’s smarter, sexier, superior-in-every-way older sister, Alex.
Now, nearly a decade later, Alex and Grayson are long over and twenty-two-year-old Lia has finally managed to forget all those lonely nights she spent pining after her sister’s boyfriend. But when Grayson unexpectedly arrives back in town with Alex for Labor Day weekend and the two announce that they’re not only back together but engaged, all the feelings that Lia buried suddenly come bubbling back to the surface.
But Lia is no longer the awkward, gangly tomboy she was at fourteen. Far from it. And Grayson is conflicted by the lustful thoughts he’s now having for her. He knows he could never act on those thoughts, however. Grayson has always prided himself on being one of the “good guys.” But as the weekend wears on, he’s finding this new grown-up version of Lia more and more impossible to resist...
Heartbreaking and sexy with a dash of humor, Sophie Swift crafts a passionate, unforgettable tale about desire, growing up, and the kind of love that shakes us to the core.
Contains adult situations and explicit content. Recommended for ages 17+
Sophie Swift is an east coast girl who recently transplanted to Southern California. She writes about sexy boys by day, and dates them by night. Her sizzling, new adult romance, OUT FROM UNDER YOU, the first in a new contemporary series, will be released in August of 2013. She loves books that quicken her pace, music sung by adolescent boys, and cupcakes with too much frosting.
Out From Under You is an extremely addicting story that I read in one sitting. There were things about the characters that I didn't quite enjoy but I couldn't put this book down. If you love new adult romance that deals with love triangles than this is a book for you.
Lia, Grayson, and Alex are the three main characters. I have never read a book in which the love triangle featured two sisters and one guy. So it made the dynamic between the three characters really strange. Lia, Grayson a and Alex are all very flawed. Obviously they all cheat and have affairs but for some reason Lia and Grayson just happen to be perfectly flawed for each other. I loved Lia and she is a really strong character who does make some mistakes. Compared to her sister and Grayson; Lia is really admirable. She knows what she wants and now that she is grown up she isn't afraid to go after it.
But what Lia wants just so happens to be her perfect sister's fiance Grayson. Alex and Grayson weren't very likable for me but they were still very interesting. What I loved is that this story went full circle for Alex and Lia. Lia and Grayson narrate this story so you never know what Alex is thinking but you find out that Alex and Lia both had the same mind set about each other which I totally didn't expect. I still feel like there could be more to this story about how they go on from there.
The end was still very satisfying. I do wish we were able to see more of Lia and Grayson as a couple together but that epilogue of them together was still great. I do want to continue of in the series and maybe one will be about Alex because I may not have liked her but I would love read about her.
