★THROWBACK THURSDAYS★ Combust by Tessa Teevan

It’s Thursday! What about a little stop/rewind?
Do you know what are Feel Good Books?
To me, ‘Feel Good Books‘ are the books that maybe not will rock my literary world, they maybe won’t get a 5 stars rating but they will make me feel GOOD.
Simple as that. Those are the books that make you smile, make you sigh a contentment smile at the end, that get you out of that redoubtable ‘book-slump‘. They can even push you into the much feared book-hangover.
Last year I picked this Tessa Teevan‘s book without too much thought. I saw a friend was reading it and just went for it. And I’m so glad I did! Combust truly fell in that category of books that makes your day a little bit better, and I think it’s maybe the most important thing of all.

I would love for you to play along and share in the comments which book you were reading same time, last year!
Would you re-read it? Have your tastes evolved since? Or was it an all time favorite?
Which authors are guaranteed to get you out of that book slump?

 

Last year I was reading...

51jB9qIh5BL._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_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?
*Although these are college aged characters, they are in the contemporary romance genre. 

Tessa Teevan has a writing I’d like to define as easy and her books usually have this “feel good” vibe going on. Combust literally got me out of my book slump and I enjoyed the love story and second chance at love between Andi and Cohen. The chemistry between the characters, the humorous and sexy scenes truly won me over and made me grin and smile all throughout the book.
