Against A Wall (Stonecut County #2)
by Cate C. Wells
My high school bully is now my fake boyfriend.
Cash Wall has been messing with me since junior high.
Nuisance stuff, mostly. Name calling. Pranks.
Honestly, he’s nowhere near the worst of my problems. Back in school, I had bigger fish to fry, and now, I’ve got a “scarlet letter” situation going on. The whole town hates me.
For some reason, Cash offers himself up as my knight in shining armor.
So now my former bully is my fake boyfriend. What could possibly go wrong?
Glenna Dobbs thinks I’m an idiot, and she’s mostly right.
I hunt. Fish. Go mudding. I’m not a “brain” type. I’m not really a “thinker.”
But I ain’t stupid. When I see that Glenna needs a rescue, I’m in.
‘Cause what Glenna doesn’t know? I’ve been in this whole time, and once I’ve got her, I’m not letting her go.
Against a Wall is a small-town, enemies-to-lovers romance. It is the second book in the Stonecut County series, but it can be read as a standalone. Intended for adult readers.
Aganist A Wall is the second book in the Stonecut County Series by Cate C. Wells.
Glenna is a 23-year-old town outcast, after her father wrote an article outing the towns beloved police chief, she puts her name on it to protect her Dad. Taking the fall for it turns her life upside down with half of the town turning on her. Her hippy boyfriend who she’s dated since she was in high school decides they shouldn’t be together anymore and she feels she has no friends left. Not to mention she’s still being bullied by Cash Wall, who hasn’t let up since their school days.
Cash, now this is a man i didn’t think I would like at tall. But oh my, did I fall for him and couldn’t help but feel a little sorry for at times throughout this book. He thinks he’s having fun with Glenna playing pranks and having a laugh but when he sees it from her perspective maybe e he might have gone a little too far at times. Deciding he needs to make up for it he tells Glenna he will help her with her problem with the whole town hating her.
“I’m fake dating cash wall,” she mutters to herself.
“You’re gonna fake love it.” I give her my most disarming grin.
I really enjoyed this book, although at times I did think Glenna was a little over the top. But Cash made up for it, I loved that he could recognise his mistakes and take accountability for them. I loved his determination to make it up to Glenna and make her see his true feelings.
The amount of secondary characters that where amazing and that I hope we get to hear again from soon. All in all a lovely read and I can’t wait for more in this series.
