I’m not a one-night stand kind of woman. I’m especially not the woman who has a few drinks at a concert and ends up in bed with my childhood celebrity crush, Eli Walsh.
However, that’s exactly where I find myself.
What’s a girl to do after a drunken mistake? Run. I grab my clothes and get away from the powerful, irresistible, and best-sex-of-my-life superstar as fast as I can. His gorgeous green eyes, rock-hard body, and cocky smile have no place in my world. My life is complicated enough.
Someone forgot to tell him that.
Eli is relentless. Pushing his way into my heart, wearing me down, proving he’s nothing like I assumed, and everything I need. But when my world shatters to pieces, he holds the broken bits together. Unwillingly, I fall desperately in love with him.
He made me think we’d have forever . . . I should’ve listened when he said we could only own tonight.
5 out of 5 stars
This may be my favorite book of 2017! We Own Tonight is every teenage girls dream come true – go to a concert for your favorite boy band and end up falling in love with your dream guy in the band. As a girl who loved New Kids on the Block back in the day, I can totally relate to this story.
Heather Covey is a police officer in Tampa. She is a caregiver to her sick sister, and doesn’t allow her time any time for herself. That all changes the night her friends talk her into going into a Four Blocks Down concert. They have front row seats, and Heather has always had a crush on Eli Walsh. Heather happens to scream that she loves Eli while looking directly at him – and he hears her. Eli ends up calling her up on stage and tells Heather he wants to see her after the show.
Heather goes with Eli and they end up hooking up. While Eli is in the bathroom, Heather panics and takes off – literally running, and having to scale a fence. Eli catches up to her and tells her he can’t believe she took off running. He’s determined to find her and learn more about her.
Eli gets his chance sooner than he thinks when Heather ends up pulling him over. They end up forming a friendship that develops in to something more.
I literally cannot say enough good things about Eli. He’s one of the best male characters I’ve read in a long time. He was thoughtful and kind, and really took Heather’s thoughts about her sister into consideration. He always put Heather first and put his career on hold after an accident. He is such a well written character.
I liked Heather, but she was a little too uptight. I understand that her sister was sick and she felt that she needed to be her caregiver, but she didn’t allow herself to have much fun. Eli changed that for her, so to see her growth over the course of the book was great. I was really impressed with her at the end and how she stood her ground.
Overall, this book was great. I was excited to read it and sad when it ended. One of the best of 2017 by far.
