Eighteen-year-old, Bronwyn Littleton is in love with a stranger she met on a summer night a year ago.
A stranger who was tall and broad in a way that made her feel safe. He had dark blue eyes that she can’t stop drawing in her sketch book. And he had a deep, soothing voice that she can’t stop hearing in her dreams.
That’s all she knows about him though.
Until she runs into him again. At St. Mary’s School for Troubled Teenagers – an all girls reform school – where she’s trapped because of a little crime she committed in the name of her art.
Now she knows that her dream man has a name: Conrad Thorne.
She knows that his eyes are way bluer and way more beautiful than she thought. And that his face is an artist’s wonderland.
But she also knows that Conrad is her best friend’s older brother. Which means he’s completely off-limits. Not to mention, he’s the new soccer coach, which makes him off-limits times two.
What makes him off-limits times three however, and this whole scenario an epic tragedy, is that, Conrad, Wyn’s dream man, has a dream girl of his own.
And he’s as much in love with his dream girl as Wyn is in love with him…
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3 Stars
I didn’t get the same sense of forbidden romance in this book that I did in the previous stories… it just kind of felt forced. I didn’t feel this burning connection between Conrad and Wyn, so the forbidden aspect to their relationship felt unexistent. The other woman drama that I was expecting with Conrad’s ex Helen being the guidance counselor at St. Mary’s was more in Bronwyn’s head than anything else.
Ultimately, These Thorn Kisses was a miss for me. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
