If you’re looking for a steamy and hot romance, then you need to pick up Selfish by Shantel Tessier today!
When Ashlyn and Becca take one last hurrah after graduating college to Panama City before heading off to New York City to start their lives, Ashlyn wasn’t looking for romance, she was just looking for a little fun, and she never expected to fall into bed with Becca’s older brother Ryder, or for them to have a connection. Ashlyn has rules for the night they spent together and she had no clue that “Ry” was who he was, so when she finds out the next morning that he’s Becca’s older brother there to surprise her for their trip, she’s in shock and can’t get away from him soon enough. Ryder on the other hand, who’s usually the one being chased, is doing all the chasing in this book. He’s intrigued by Ashlyn and can’t get enough of her.
With Ashlyn confused on how she feels about Ryder, and Ryder knowing exactly what he wants, this book is definitely interesting, throw in a complicated friendship with her best friend Bradley, and dealing with Becca and her awful boyfriend Connor and this book is a roller coaster. I wanted Ashlyn to see what she had in front of her with Ryder, but she was stubborn and scared, and it seemed every time she was willing to take a chance, something or someone would step in the way and scare her off. These two have the chemistry, the attraction, and everything to be perfect for one another. Ryder treats her like a queen and understands her like no one else. The fact that she’s not a money grabber and could care less about Becca and Ryder’s money is refreshing to Ryder, and how much she loves his sister is something he adores.
As much as I wanted to strangle Ashlyn many times in this book, I did understand her fear. She wants that love that is all consuming, but she’s afraid to let herself have it, and doesn’t see it’s sitting right there in front of her. She’s comfortable with what she has, and it’s not until she loses it that she realizes what she has. This book had me on the edge of my seat throughout this entire book with the “will they or won’t they” theme, and the hot sex scenes were exactly that HOT! Ashlyn and Ryder are amazing together, but the ending nearly killed me! I am definitely looking forward to diving right into Myself to read Becca’s story and I can’t wait to read Selfless to see what happens next with Ashlyn and Ryder. I definitely recommend reading Selfish as it is angsty, full of laughs, and steam!
