Read Kay’s Review: Waste My Time

Excerpt

Walking through campus, I keep my head down. The Advil has done as much for my headache as the saltine crackers the school nurse gives you for a broken arm. If there’s one thing I don’t want right now, it’s to make small talk with some shithead who thinks we’re friends simply because Z and I throw the best parties.
My only mission is to get to my class, where I can fall back asleep listening to the monotone voice of my professor as he drones on about the fundamentals of programming and problem solving. And yet, when I get most of the way there, I quite literally crash right into someone else.
Books fly out of the girl’s hand and land among mine on the ground.
“I’m so sorry,” I say, but as I look up, I notice Kennedy staring back at me.
Shit.
I’ve been trying to stay out of her way. I mean, Tessa found happiness after me, and then I practically destroyed her by trying to get her back. I’d rather die than do the same thing to Kennedy, so if she’s happy with Alec, I’ll force myself to be happy for her.
She stares back at me, clearly in shock as I quickly pick up her books and hand them to her. As she takes them from me, our hands touch, and my body reacts to the feel of her skin on my own.
The same way it always has.
The same way it always will.
Seeing her now, my body hurts—literally yearns to pull her back into my arms and just hold her there, never letting her go. But I can’t let myself do that. Not anymore.
I go to walk away, to leave her alone like I swore to myself I would, but she stops me with a call of my name.
“I actually need to talk to you about something,” she says with a sigh.
The air around me feels too thick, standing here with her, but I swallow it down. “Everything okay?”
“Uh, yeah. I guess,” she mutters, looking anywhere except back at me. “I, uh…fuck.”
A part of me wonders if she’s just trying to keep me around. Keep my attention on her. Like ignoring her the past week was drawing her back to me. But if I’ve learned anything the last week, it’s that she’s better off without me.
Where I can’t ruin her life.
Letting out a huff, I know I’m going to hate myself for this. “Can you just say what it is you want to say? I have places to be.”
She narrows her eyes at me. “It’s not that simple.”
“Sure it is. Your mouth forms words, and you say them,” I spit. “Just tell me.”
“Easton,” she breathes, and I’m even more sure she just wants to keep me here as long as possible.
I roll my eyes. “Fuck it, then. I’ve got to go.”
“I’m pregnant,” she announces, freezing up as she realizes the way she just blurted out that crucial information. “According to the doctor, about twelve weeks.”
Her words hit me right in the chest.
Pregnant.
She’s pregnant.
And twelve weeks means it’s mine. There’s no way it can’t be, unless she cheated. No. Kennedy is a lot of things, but a cheater is not one of them. That only leaves one person to be the father.
Me.
“Y-you’re…”
Everything starts to spin as the reality sets in that I’m going to be a father. The nausea from my hangover builds in my throat and threatens to bubble over. I try to hold it back. Try to keep it in. But there’s nothing I can do.
It all happens in a millisecond. I attempt to turn away but she puts her hand on my arm, keeping me in place as she looks at me in bewilderment.
I’m stuck.
There’s nowhere to go.
Nothing I can do.
And that’s when it goes wrong.
I bend over, emptying the contents of my stomach all over the ground and Kennedy’s favorite pair of boots. She gasps, holding her books close to her chest and not looking down for a moment. She doesn’t need to. It’s no mystery as to what just happened.
“Fuck,” I groan. “Kennedy, I am so sorry.”
“It’s fine,” she snips, showing it’s most definitely not fine.
As she takes a step away, I stop her. “At least let me help you clean up.”
“No,” she barks. “Trust me. You’ve done enough.”
With that, she practically runs back toward her dorm, not sparing so much as a glance back at me.
I fucked up again.

Review – Waste My Time by Kelsey Clayton

Waste My Time (North Haven University #4)

Waste My Time; North Haven University #4
(#4 within a series)

Publication Date: July 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/ Second Chance/Surprise Pregnancy Romance

Author: Kelsey Clayton

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Emotional, gripping, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to say goodbye to NHU until the perfect ending.

Waste My Time is a second chance romance filled with so much emotion, it shows how much Clayton poured her heart and soul into this book as it pulled at all of my heartstrings.

I am a product of a second chance romance myself and I can tell you that every thought and emotion that Kennedy possessed I felt at one time or another. My soul ached for this girl as she struggled with self identity, jealousy, grief, sadness, just to name a few of the emotions that ran through her mind as she came to grips with her relationship that was disintegrating right before her eyes.

How does this happen? Easton Donovan was in love with another girl in high school, Tessa, but he never really let her go even when he began his relationship with Kennedy. No matter how strong their relationship was, that doubt, that fear, that lack of trust, well…it only takes one time to break what you believe was strong and Easton only had himself to blame for throwing it all away.

Their story is one that grew out of that broken trust and this entire book is whether they piece it back together or just walk away. It’s heartbreaking, truly emotional, and I loved every moment of this book.

I especially loved how Kelsey didn’t make their road an easy fix. It wasn’t won over a bought trinket, or a dinner out, or steamy bedroom time. Kennedy and Easton both have to work at building what was shattered. I both love and completely understand building a foundation making this an emotional book that was a complete page turner.

With this being the last book in the NHU series, Kelsey seamlessly brought in past characters for bittersweet moments, or for probably the best moment in the entire series ever – the bro-shower! OMG!! I was dying laughing. Waste My Time was nowhere near a waste of time to read, it was perfect and the best possible way to end a phenomenal series.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

So many good stories with insanely fantastic authors all jammed packed into one spot…this anthology is EPIC!!

Every story has a baby that is a product spent from a night of passion, which isn’t the surprise in each tale, no, what makes this anthology fun is to jump into each story and find out how each couple arrives with a sweet bundle of bliss. I loved how the actual baby surprise wasn’t the spoiler in each tale, but how the couple meets, or the timeline of their second chance romance arrives, or even the job each person holds. I truly loved this anthology and there isn’t a bad story in this entire book.

A look at just a few stories:

Finding Prince Charming by Nikki Ash-

Liam and Natalie have a whirlwind weekend that leads to a lifelong commitment, at least for Natalie since she doesn’t know where Liam’s from or even his last name. A weekend with a mysterious stranger is something she will never take back since it brought her the most precious gift she could ever ask for and the boost she needed to reach for her dream. This second chance romance has it all and I loved it.

And One by Rebecca Jenshak –

Return to Valley U and the White House with Jenshak’s Smart Jock athletes. Rylee and John spent the greatest night of their lives three years ago, but John had no idea he left a little gift behind leaving Rylee to raise their baby all on her own. Return to Valley U and fall in love with this dreamy baby daddy and adorable toddler in this sweet romance.

These are just a few glimpses into this incredible anthology and I’m seriously over the moon with all of the hot DILF’s , sweet kids and totally strong mom’s who stand up for their children and love their men.

Excerpt

“What the fuck is she doing here?” I turn toward the door to see Carter, Jace, and Jace’s girlfriend standing there. The guys look just as shocked to see me as I am to see them, but the girl next to Jace is most likely picturing ways to murder me in her mind. “You two know each other?” Amelia asks. She grunts. “Not exactly, but I know enough of her to know she’s a fucking bitch.” “Woah,” Kennedy steps in. “Easy, Paige.” “Yeah, babe. Let’s calm down a little,” Jace tries, but she’s not having it. She rips her arm out of his hold. “No! Fuck no! She tried to put you away for life, Jace. For life!” The reminder of my best friend’s murder trial is a slap in the face, and my testimony was based off my belief that he actually did it. If I had seen the tape showing the other angle before I got on the stand, I never would have agreed to testify. The one thing I can see, though, is that Jace seems to value his life a little more than he used to, because he doesn’t try to calm his girlfriend down again. Paige glares at me as she steps forward and into my face. “I don’t know what the fuck you’re doing here, but let me make one thing clear: if you try fucking with my friends, my family, we’re going to have serious issues.” There is absolutely nothing that I find intimidating about this girl. To be honest, it looks like I could have the right guy punt her across a football field. But I can respect her loyalty to her friends and the courage to jump into the lion’s den to defend them. I used to have that. She turns around and walks back toward Jace. “Come on. We’re leaving.” “No. Allow me.” I interrupt and my eyes find Carter’s. “Suddenly, this is the last place I want to be.” Neither Kennedy or Amelia try to stop me as I slip out the door—not that I expected them to. They’ve been friends with them longer. Of course, Carter manages to take everything from me. He took Davi. Now he already has Kennedy and Amelia. There’s no way those two will have anything to do with me once I start doing things to get back at Carter, and nothing will stand in the way of my plans. Nothing. As if he has an actual death wish, the door opens and Carter comes running out, calling my name. I consider not stopping. I’m sure nothing good can come from talking to him, but my anger is enough to get me to freeze. “Don’t leave,” he tells me. “I’m sorry for what Paige said.” I balk. “For what Paige said? That’s what you’re sorry for?” Running his fingers through his hair, he sighs. “Not the only thing, but it’s something I’m sorry for. Can we just go somewhere and talk?” A bark of humorless laughter echoes out of me. “No. I don’t want to go anywhere with you. I don’t even want to fucking look at you.” My fists clench, and I can feel my nails digging into my skin as he stays quiet. “You just have the perfect life, don’t you? You’ve got your team and your friends and your family. And where’s mine? Oh. That’s right. Six feet under, right where you fucking left her.”

Review – Wrecked My Plans by Kelsey Clayton

54573205. sy475

Wrecked My Plans; Haven Grace University #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: March 18, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/College/Enemies to Lovers Romance

Author: Kelsey Clayton

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I totally LOVED this book!! Can I actually admit to having a new favorite power couple?! Yes, yes I can.

North Haven University holds its fair share of preppy, entitled, wealthy young adults and Carter Trayland is no exception to the wealthy population. Although having this status doesn’t make him a jerk, he’s actually somewhat uniquely different. He’s a bit more humble when it comes to his friends and those close to him. And while he’s had his fair share of heartbreak and loss for someone so young, he’s been able to keep his happy-go-lucky attitude about him, and that makes it hard not to like him, especially when you’re the girl out to make his life a living nightmare.

Tye Morgan begins the school year with a vengeance for her BFF, Dami who lost her life while Carter was dating her, but it was more Jace (Carter’s BFF) who had a whole love triangle thing going on…well, you’ll just need to read his story to figure that mess out, but now Tye has a bone to pick with Carter and she’s not leaving until he’s picked clean.

Carter and Tyesen have a tied up, messed up past and even though Tye has transferred to NHU to make Carter’s life miserable, her destructive tendencies sometimes blow back on her and yet everytime Carter is there to ease her mistakes or help lick her wounds (sometimes literally, yum) because that’s just the kind of guy he is, which only frustrates Tye more. Carter is soooooo likeable he makes up for anything that happened in his past. This is one power couple that competes for Clayton’s top spot.

Their dancing around each other, devious pranks, and high octane chemistry certainly makes for excellent reading!!

What I enjoyed most, this book is lighter, definitely not as dark as the previous books in the NHU series. Tye’s pranks are quite funny and Carter takes everything in stride. His easy going attitude and hero like personality, I feel, is what lifts this entire book out of the dark mood that the previous books lived in. Not that Tye and Carter don’t circle their own angst and dark pasts, but I feel like there was more of a shiny sparkle to this story overall. Maybe it was my projections, but I really enjoyed that extra sparkle, especially on the previous characters. They deserved their hard won happy endings with lots of sprinkles and rainbows.

Synopsis:

My name is Carter Trayland,
And I really screwed up.

I should’ve ended things before they began.
Instead, I wound up in a twisted love triangle,
One that I never wanted to be a part of.

The wrong choice sent my life on a whirlwind.
A woman I forced myself to love is dead.
My best friend was nearly blamed for her murder.
And the one I’ve always wanted, now wants revenge.

Her favorite person is gone, and she thinks it’s my fault.
I’m not about to correct her either.
Not when the reality is so much worse.

She can’t find out the truth of what happened.
Knowing would ruin her in ways I can’t fathom.
If blaming me is her way of coping, I’ll gladly carry that burden.

Because Tyeler Morgan is the one girl I’d protect at all costs.

Read Kay’s Review: Change My Game

Excerpt

Grabbing my pillow off the couch, I make my way back to my room as Paige follows. It’s only a twin size bed, so the two of us are going to end up practically on top of each other, but at least it’s more comfortable. I wasn’t allowed to change the mattress out, but I was able to put a pillow top on it to make it a little more bearable.

“Do you want the wall or the edge?”

She tilts her head to the side as she thinks about it. “The edge. I don’t want to wake you up in the morning when I’m trying to get out of bed at quarter after six.”

I purse my lips as I realize she’s right. “Good point.”

Climbing onto the bed, I get as close to the wall as possible, and she gets in behind me. Even with my one arm flush against the cold sheetrock, we’re still pressed together. I roll onto my side to try to give us more room, but she stays staring up at the ceiling.

“Goodnight, Paige.”

She doesn’t move an inch, not even to look over at me. “Goodnight.”

A few minutes pass as I wait for her to close her eyes, but that time doesn’t come. She blinks up at the ceiling, like it’s not even there and she’s watching the stars. It isn’t until she moves her hand just slightly, that I realize I wasn’t imagining things all night.

Her hand moves across the bed until it ends up directly on my dick, and it instantly twitches. I can’t really blame it, since I’ve gone longer than a monk without sex lately, but it’s a bit disappointing when she rips her hand away.

“Oh my God,” she gasps. “I’m sorry. I was…I’m sorry.”

I can’t help but chuckle as she covers her face. “It’s fine. If you want to touch my cock, it’s free game.”

She whimpers and reaches over to smack me, though it lacks force. “Ugh, this was a bad idea.”

“What were you trying to do?”

Her head turns my way, and she huffs. “I was looking for your hand.”

I lift my hand from next to my head. “It’s up here.”

“I see that now.”

Thankfully, my fears of her insisting she sleeps on the couch dissipate as she doesn’t move. Instead, she goes back to staring up at the ceiling, but I’m rock hard at this point. Even just a second of her touch was enough to wake the beast.

I slowly drag my fingertips down her arm, starting from her shoulder. Then, I skate over to her leg and make my way up her thigh—really taking my time in case she wants to stop me. But she doesn’t. She stays completely still, until just before I reach the waistband of her shorts. My fingers dip under the fabric, and her breath hitches.

“You said no funny business,” she whispers into the silence.

I hum. “Trust me, I find nothing funny about this.”

(A standalone within a series)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Wow! I needed a moment to collect my thoughts and emotions because this new book by Kelsey Clayton is just Wow!

First off, these Haven Grace Prep boys are growing up fine!!!! Now that that is off my chest, the gang now is off to college in this new interconnected series of Haven Grace University. While there are still updates on some of our favorite characters, this new series focuses on all new bad boys.

Zayn Bronsyn is caught in a web. A web so tangled that the more he tries to get himself unstuck he only gets more ensnared and a big, bad spider is closing in. Zayn is best friends with Easton and Knox (who had his happy ending with Delaney in The Saint) and the one girl who catches his eye just happens to be Easton’s little sister, Amelia.

Amelia has been away at boarding school for the past few years. She’s grown up while she’s been away and she’s more beautiful than ever. The allure of her returning certainly has Zayn’s eye, but he knows better than to pursue his best friend’s sister. Amelia has other plans to keep Zayn’s eye on her because she’s had a crush on Zayn for years and now that they are attending the same college she plans to make Zayn hers.

There are numerous obstacles stacked against Zayn when it comes to Amelia and her being Easton’s sister is just one of them. No matter how much he wants to do the right thing…remember that web I mentioned…Zayn gets tangled and wrapped in it every single time he tries to do the right thing. At the end of the day, he truly believes he’s a bad guy, but he’s the kind of guy you want in your corner every day of the week. He is the hero, the dragon slayer, the prince, etc…he just might be all that covered in a bad boy persona. Actually that makes him hotter.

Amelia on the other hand is bold and courageous. She is no wallflower. While she was always a good girl, in the past, she is looking for adventure and fun now that she’s away at college. While Zayn tries his best to keep her at arms length, Amelia is upfront, not only about her intentions regarding him, but also that if he doesn’t want her that she isn’t going to sit around and pine away for him. I respect her spirit and applaud Kelsey for writing a strong heroine. Oh, and that web Zayn is in, Amelia accidently trips and gets caught in it too.

Both characters have wonderful traits that blend beautifully together, now if they can only figure out how to untangle the web they have both been caught in and figure out how to kill the spider.

Corrupt My Mind is very emotional and everything is just bigger when it comes to living life and navigating relationships at this point in their lives. The stakes were raised and Kelsey met everything perfectly.

Review – Hendrix by Kelsey Clayton

Hendrix 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

by: Kelsey Clayton

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Kelsey Clayton blew this second chance, secret romance out of the water! Hendrix is sweet and loving and everything we knew he could be. It was the perfect surprise release.

I think it’s safe to say that we all fell in love with Colby Hendrix in Clayton’s past books and we were holding our breaths that Colby would get his own happy ending. As far fetched as a HEA seemed in Colby’s mind, and he constantly touted that he wasn’t a relationship man, in this book we find out the specific reasons for those adamant claims. We also discover a huge secret that was kept from him that changes his life forever.

This is a slow burn romance, but honestly I didn’t even notice while I was reading. The story drew me in and the relationships developing between everyone kept me so engrossed I wasn’t even focused on the slow boiling chemistry between Colby and Saige. I love that these two beautiful souls found their way back to one another and the story is perfect.

Kensington Bradwell doesn’t get told no often.

Not when he built an empire from the ground up.

Not when he became the most powerful man in North Haven.

And definitely not when he met my mother.

A picture-perfect relationship,

a happy family,

and twenty years of marriage—

all thrown away for a man with no morals.

Tearing him down won’t be easy,

but I won’t stop until his empire is in flames.

For my sister. For my father. For me.

I need to find a way to break him.

Lucky for me, the answer just fell into my lap.

Daddy’s little princess may be innocent in all of this,

but Lennon’s about to get caught in the crossfire of revenge.

Review – The Enemy by Kelsey Clayton

The Enemy; Haven Grace Prep #4 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Kelsey Clayton

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Sweet and salty is the perfect combination in The Enemy where we return to Haven Grace Prep with Lennon Bradwell and are introduced to Cade Knight.

Lennon may be from one of the richest families and live in a house that resembles an actual castle, but she is far from a spoiled princess. From all of the people we’ve met along the way, Lennon is one of the sweetest, loyal, and truly cares deeply for the few people in her life. She has lived a fairly sheltered life, which makes the circle of people in her world rather small, but those in it she accepts 100%, that makes not liking Cade Knight that much harder when his family moves into her home. Her entire life has just been her and her father so when Nora, Molly, and Cade Knight all move in she is willing to give them a chance because it makes her father happy, but Cade is anything but the ideal new housemate. He decides to make their lives miserable and torn between making her father happy and getting along with Cade Lennon finds herself in new territory.

Cade Knight is angry. He’s never found himself in this position before in his entire life. He thought his parents were happy, but then his mother comes home and tells him that not only are his parents getting a divorce, but also that they are moving into her new boyfriends house. His world is turned upside down and he vows to never get along with his “new family”. It doesn’t help his anger that the potential new stepsister living in the house is beautiful, sweet, and she’s dating one of his least favorite people. Lennon Bradwell becomes public enemy #1 in his book and he’ll do everything to make her life miserable.

Cade and Lennon have a constant back and forth, a real test of wills that not only shows their weaknesses for each other, but also unknowingly builds their relationship from the inside. These two are true fire and kindling and only burn hotter the more they push each other buttons.

In this angsty bully romance should the princess rescue the knight so they can live happily ever after or will the knight push the princess out of her tower so they can burn a new trail to their own happiness? Find out how the sweet and salty get to their HEA in this angsty new book.

Review – The Rebel by Kelsey Clayton

The Rebel; A Haven Grace Prep #3 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

by: Kelsey Clayton

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An explosive, emotional read! This is a forbidden story between an injured NFL player turned resigned high school teacher and a rebellious student who finds herself repeating her senior year of high school. When Tessa finds herself parked in the very class of her one night stand from weeks ago, it’s safe to say that neither Tessa nor Asher thought that their lives would change quite like they did after their intense evening.

Asher Hawthorne never thought his football career would be over at the age of twenty-eight, but he also never thought that he’d be teaching a bunch of rich, entitled students either, so never say never. To top off his fall from grace his one night stand, whom he met in an over twenty-one club, is now sitting in his high school class on the first day of school. Thankfully she’s eighteen, but she’s still his student and no matter how much he can’t seem to forget her, he has a job to do and Tessa isn’t on the syllabus.

Tessa Callahan is a spitfire. She’s bold, outspoken and plays by her own rules, but deep inside she’s broken. She’s been beaten down again and again and uses her brash personality to hide her scars. Tessa is a master at playing her own game and has used her twin sister, her past boyfriends or substance abuse to hide behind her real emotions. As those protective shields have slowly been peeled away it’s left Tessa vulnerable to emotions she doesn’t want to face, but there is one person who doesn’t let her hide, who likes the real Tessa, the question is will Tessa permit him inside?

Asher and Tessa’s story goes deeper than just a forbidden romance. Tessa has endured things that have matured her beyond her years, so the age difference becomes more of a running joke between them. There are lots of wonderful moments of levity strung throughout the story which offset the highly emotional moments that will pull at your heart.

I couldn’t stop turning the pages of this book once I began. The Rebel is  interconnected with Clayton’s previous Haven Grace books, but she works the storyline in that you could read this as a standalone if needed. There are so many directions she can take us in the upcoming books and I’m excited to see where this series will continue.

Synopsis:

I don’t play by the rules.

“I don’t want you to leave tomorrow.” I lay my head on Delaney’s shoulder, letting my buzz control my level of honesty.

“I know, but you’ll be okay. Besides, you can come visit any time you want.”

I huff. “You better be available whenever I want. You’re supposed to be my ride or die and you’re leaving me.”

Savannah being the brat she is, looks over Laney and at me with a smirk on her face. “Are you actually sad because Delaney is leaving, or because you broke up with Easton?”

Fuck. Of course Laney told her about that. Meanwhile, I hadn’t gotten around to telling Lennon so I cringe as she gasps and her head whips over to me.

“You broke up with Easton?”

If I didn’t want to smack Savannah a couple hundred times before, I definitely do now. “He’s going away to college, and I’m not stupid or naïve enough to think we can make the whole long-distance thing work.”

If there’s one thing that I love about Lennon, it’s that she can sense when I really don’t want to talk about something. Even in the short time I’ve known her, she’s figured out how to read me and uses that to her advantage. She smiles and nudges me with her elbow.

“Well, good. You can be single with me this year.”

Savannah and Lennon banter back and forth, but I can’t be bothered to listen. Instead, all my focus is back on the mystery man who, despite having some supermodel level bimbo trying to hang all over him, can’t keep his gaze off me.

“Weeds out all the pussies.”

“Speaking of pussies…” I bite my lip, causing him to lick his own, and that’s the only sign I need. “Mine needs a change of pace. Excuse me.”

I ignore the shocked and confused looks on their faces as I get up. It only takes a few seconds to get to where he is, and as soon as I do, I rudely slot myself between him and the girl trying desperately to seduce him.

“Uh, excuse me,” she whines, but I can’t be bothered.

Two perfect emerald eyes are locked with my own. His dirty blonde hair looks like he just ran his fingers through it to push it from his eyes. The black T-shirt he’s wearing is tight, making his muscles bulge through it, and judging by the way he’s sitting on the stool, he’s tall. He looks like he could toss me around just for the fun of it, and I’m totally on board.

I take what’s left of his whiskey and throw it back like a shot while he watches me, completely enamored.

“Tessa Davenport,” I lie, handing him the empty glass.

He smiles as he takes it back and places it on the bar, his sights still on me. “Asher Hawthorne.”

This stunning story stunning and emotionally-moving masterpiece dances between dark and light, teetering between storms and rainbows, as its underlying message of not judging others and seeing more than what’s on the surface touches the heart in every way. The Saint owned every ounce of me.” ~Karen, Bookalicious Babes

DELANEY

Cruel.

Heartless.

A mistake waiting to happen.

Knox Vaughn is the epitome of a bad boy.

He’s trouble in a sexy-as-sin package.

I know it.

They know it.

Even he knows it.

But, it’s like a moth to the flame.

I can’t stay away—even though I’m going to get burned.

You know what they say,

The sinners are much more fun.

And this saint is changing the game.

Too perfect for me.

Hell, she’s too perfect for anyone.
