♕ REVIEW ♕ ARC ♕ Cyanide (Surface Rust, #1) by Ella Fields

TITLE: Cyanide
SERIES:  (Surface Rust, #1)
AUTHOR: Ella Fields
GENRE: Romance
PUBLICATION: August 24th, 2017
Heartless. Conceited. Shallow.
Three simple words to describe me. 

I had everything a girl could ask for, yet nothing I truly needed.
I'd made peace with who I was and the expectations set upon me long ago.
Only to have that peace shattered when a nameless hero rode into my world. 

I wasn't allowed to have him.
Too bad I never cared much for the word no.

Because I'd soon learn the hard way that too much self-indulgence could result in incurable consequences.

4 FROST & HERO STARS 

CYANIDE: this is the first book in the (Surface Rust) series by Ella Fields. If you've read 'Frayed Silk' you would've already have had the privilege of meeting Jared but to understand this book there is no need at all to read that before jumping onto this as I have not read the above mentioned book. 

Vera Marie Bramston has lived the life of a fairy princess, since she was young and raised by her father she was never in need of anything, everything she asked for it was delivered, but the only thing she really craved and wished for was love. If it wasn't for the love of books and falling under the spell of handsome princes her life would be beyond unbearable. A nanny and a butler who think she's spoilt beyond measure, a mother that took off with the first handsome man she saw, and a father who is never there. 

Love has always fascinated me. All my life I've spent hours obsessing over it through the pages of books. The adventure, the magic, the risk, the beauty of it, never daring to hope that it might one day be something I could have myself. True, real love. 

Getting into a heated argument with her boyfriend after being blindsided at looking at houses she demands to be let out of his car, after his departure and not being able to get cell phone coverage walking along a busy dangerous highway she’s up shits creek without a paddle, but at least she’s decked out in the best clothes money can buy, from head right down to her Gucci wedges. .

UNTIL she’s rescued by a knight on a shinning black Harley who pulls over and demands she jump on behind him. A walking, talking, tall, dark, and delicious drink of bad.

Thinking that she would never see him again she's astounded by the amount of times they actually cross paths. A man with commitment issues. 

Their love story is not an easy one to read there are many obstacles thrown at them not only from family, social standing but themselves included. But in the end true love prevailed all. 

My green eyed hero
My endless adventure
My everything that matter. 


I had a preconceived perception going into this book that we'd be stepping into the forbidden territory of cheating, and I have no idea where I even came up with that thought. But getting over that, I fell in love with these two characters, Vera, came across like a snotty stuck up socialite but she had so much depth to her, I crazy loved her character, a sharp shooter with a forked tongue, she didn't give a shit what anyone thought of her. Now let's talk about Jared, god this guy had me from the get go, he's the epitome of how we all want our men to be, rough around the edges, purely alpha with a dirty mouth but now and then you'd see a vulnerable side to him, a happy go lucky kind of guy who took life by the horns. All I can say is get ready to swoon, because swoon you will. 

These two characters should not have worked, opposites in every way conceivable, but they were just imperfectly perfect together, the man from the wrong side of the tracks, from completely different worlds, a grease monkey who had his hooks in a modern day cinderella.

My green eyed hero. My endless adventure. My everything that matters. A lowly smartass mechanic from the wrong side of the proverbial tracks. We don't need perfect when what we have is real.
