Book Review – Combust by Tessa Teevan (Wellington’s #1)

After years of being called a tease and then being labeled the Virgin Queen, Andi Kane decides that when she goes off to college, she’s ready to ditch the labels. She’s grabbing the bull by its horns and riding as wild as she can.

Fate must be smiling on her the night she meets Cohen Wellington, the cute boy-next-door and fellow music lover. Their connection is instant, and as the night progresses, she knows she’s found The One. Only…it doesn’t go exactly the way she had planned it. And even though she can’t get him off her mind, some humiliations are just too much to overcome. She walks away, never planning to see him again.

Three years and a whole lot of experience later, Andi and Cohen are suddenly drawn together again, and it doesn’t take long before it’s clear their connection is stronger than ever.

Fate. Destiny. Kismet. Whatever you want to call it, these two fall hard and fall fast. Their love burns hot, but when their plans for the future seem to move in two different directions, will it be enough to sustain the flames, or will the fire consume them, their relationship combusting before their very eyes?

Sometimes love comes quickly without question, without hesitation, and without fear. But this kind of love is once in a lifetime, and sometimes you just have to ask yourself, can it really last?

4 out of 5 stars

Book 1 of the Wellington’s series is really like book 4 of the Explosives series and follows Cohen Wellington, brother of Knox.  Cohen starts college at the University of Tennessee and quickly meets Andi, a fiery redhead who gets under his skin.

Fast forward three years, Andi and Cohen meet again and start a romance.  It is intense and moves quickly (except in the bedroom).  The chemistry between this two is off the charts. 

I loved Cohen.  Really loved him.  He was just the sweetest guy.  I liked Andi, she was ok.  She could be a little immature at times, which was annoying.  She grew on me as the book went on.  Overall, this was a good story, and I’m excited to read Branson’s story.
