Bender was in my top 5 books in 2014. I loved this book, but I'm only rating this a 4 star for the audiobook narration. Chandra Skyye just wasn't my Keegan, and absolutely not my Camden. I imagine Camden as fierce and sexy, and having a female play this alpha role, didn't do much for me.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book- Ill be the first to admit- this was bought only because of the sexy cover- but than again- I do that often. I've had it for awhile and decided this weekend to dig in. Yeah 1 night read. I LOVED Camden, like a lot. And Keegan,I loved that she wasn't the perfect size 0, even though every man that came into contact with her adored her and loved her look.
The best part of knowing that Camden has 3 brothers that will get there own story makes me even happier. I loved Dodger- I was soooooo hoping he would get his story next but it looks like Turner gets his first- We don't know much about him other than he's a brother.
Okay.. back to the book.
Keegan is a 20 year nursing student- well inspiring nursing student. She lives at home with her mom and her 8 year old sister. Except she carries more the mother role than her own mother. Than one day something clicked and she needed to move out. Her BF suggested getting a roommate and that's when she meets Dodger- he's Camden's brother and signed Keegan right up to be Camden's roommate.- without Camden knowing- Camden was not happy, and came off like a real jerk- beyond jerk- like swear words used 10x's. But lets face it, even though he's not a perfect, wait he is, I pictured him just as Stacy portrayed him on the cover of her book.... MELT, he teaches Keegan how to love herself and believe in herself.
This book is about self esteem, trust, new love, courage and friendship. You'll love it- very steamy at some points and loving all the characters wasn't hard to do.
