Who He Is Button

~ Synopsis ~

Who He Is Cover

Eliza Smith has never been the one to seek a relationship. She’s never dated a guy in her life, never even hugged a man (outside of her father/manager of the hot and popular rock band, FireNine) but when she decides to spend her summer on tour with FireNine, it all changes. Eliza really gets to meet Gage Grendel – her former crush from high school and the lead singer of FireNine – and witness sides to him to which she’ll begin to truly despise.
She’ll ignore him, she’ll dislike his ways, she’ll do anything to try and stay away from him until Gage finally gets her to slip up and give in. She agrees on a casual fling with Gage, but soon they’ll both see how the fling will blur into something they can’t control and when it’s finally time for Eliza to go and accomplish her own dreams, she’ll know there’s more she took from Gage than she ever thought possible.

~ Review ~

Who He Is by Shanora Williams was AMAZING!  Honestly I had no idea what the book was going to be about and never read the synopsis before I started it, I figured if it was by Shanora Williams it was going to be good.  She did not disappoint and I absolutely loved it. Eliza and Gage each have troubled upbringings that affect their adult relationships, but they are drawn to each other in a way they can not explain. I really loved these characters and rooted for them every step of the way.  Eliza has a horrible past that has closed her off to relationships and she has not experienced any of the “firsts” a normal girl does.  I loved watching her grow in this story.  Gage is a rock god that made me swoon.  Like most rock stars he is used to have girl after girl but is so drawn to Eliza that he just wants more. Montana, Deed and Roy, the other band members, really made the story.  They added so many dimensions to the story and I can not wait to learn more about them in the rest of the series.  All in all this a fantastic read but it does leave with a MAJOR CLIFFHANGER!! The ending broke my heart but left me dying for more.  I am so excited Shanora decided to expand this series to include the other band mates stories.

~ Excerpt ~

My head swam as Gage bent down on his knees, pulled me to the edge of the bed, and kissed up my leg, his lips then touching the center of my thigh. He was so close to my entrance that I bucked against him, but he shook his head through the darkness. “Don’t move. Let me,” he growled, placing my feet on his shoulders.

I couldn’t fight it. I lost a bit of the tension and placed the back of my head against the bed, my legs hoisted up by his large shoulders. He started from the bottom of my thigh and kissed his way up. His fingers were hooked on my waist, his head moving up gradually. I was panting, anticipating, wanting to move wildly, and he wasn’t even there yet.

He groaned as his tongue slipped over one thigh before moving to the other. I moaned, squeezing his hand. He was teasing me. I could feel him laughing silently every time I shuddered. His hot tongue slid between my legs and then he pushed them apart completely, leaving me wide open.

“Get ready for me,” he murmured, his warm breath running across my core. “Eliza,” he whispered so faintly I thought I was imagining it. “I don’t want you to lie to me again after tonight.” He kissed the top of my knee, but I frowned, confused. “Don’t tell me we’re ‘just friends’ again. I’m about to show you we aren’t anymore. I don’t wanna be. I want more of you…”

And then, before I could even speak, his tongue leisurely slid across my clit and I gasped. The heat consumed me, warmed me, and he groaned deeply as he sucked and licked. “Taste so good, Sweet Ellie,” he murmured, his mouth still glued between my legs.
