I Liked It!
Gable is the first book in the Powers That Be series and I am definitely hooked! The writing style, the story, the LOL moments and the broken heart was all worth it! This book is amazing!
I know I’m late to the game in reading this series, and trust me, I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner, but let me tell you.. this book is AWESOME!
Scout just moved to Seattle to attend college, and has heard all about the Powers brothers, she never expected to run into one of them and immediately hate him, only to find out how much she hated him still the second time she ran into him. Gable is a playboy, a bad boy, and Scout thinks he only wants one thing. When fate (or coincidence) steps in, these two get a lot closer than either one of them expected.
I will say, Gable really made me mad many times in this book. He would come off as cocky, and I couldn’t see what Scout saw in him at times. But then, we would get to see the real Gable, and he has been hurt, he’s a sweetheart, and no wonder everyone around him seems to fall in love. Not many people get to see the side of Gable that Scout does, and the way she handled things at times angered me, but both of these characters were at fault.
Just when I thought everything was finally going to work out for these two, there are some misunderstandings, and I wanted to strangle Scout for being so stupid and not listening to Gable. She at times came off as immature, but in reality, I really think she was trying to protect her heart. She knew how she felt about Gable, but wasn’t prepared for him to feel the same, nor was she prepared for everything that happened between them. My heart goes out to both of these characters, both of them have been hurt in the past, and don’t trust easily.
Overall this book was amazing. I loved Gable and Scout’s story and can’t wait to get to know more of the Powers brothers. There is definitely some angst in this book, and a ton of laughs. Scouts best friends Amy and Bhodi were awesome, and definitely added a lighter element to this story.
If you’re looking for a quick new adult read, I highly suggest one-clicking your copy of Gable today! The whole story gripped me, but the epilogue, it was great!!!
