Quatrième de couverture :
A famous drummer. A homeless teen. It’s hard to tell which one is the savior.
When Jessie Thunder, a famous drummer, learns a homeless person has been sneaking into his home, Jessie decides to help him out. The eighteen-year-old “boy” is too old to go in the system, and Jessie can’t stand the thought of anyone going hungry. He also hopes rescuing Theo will ease his soul. Otherwise, there’s nothing redeeming left of him.
Even though Theo doesn’t trust Jessie’s help, he doesn’t have anywhere else to go. At first, Jessie’s attention feels like heaven. He’s never had anyone care about him, especially someone as amazing as Jessie. Everything seems perfect. That is, until Theo realizes Jessie’s beauty is only a mask. Inside, Jessie is poison and Theo has to get out before he finds himself in worse shape than when he lived on the street.
With Theo gone and no one to save him, Jessie has to make a choice. He can either rescue himself or drown in the toxic waste his life has become. Only one of those roads leads back to Theo.
Beautifully Toxic is the first book in bestselling author Charity Parkerson’s series, Candied Crush, where the men are like candy—rich, irresistible, and bad for your health.
L’avis d’Eric :
Un roman touchant. Des personnages avec leurs défauts mais si attachants.
Nos deux héros se sont trouvés, se sauvant l’un l’autre. D’une part Theo qui ne semble rencontrer l’amour que pour se le faire arracher brutalement. Il n’a eu de cesse que d’être balloté. D’autre part Jessie qui pense aux autres mais s’oublie sur le chemin.
J’ai parfois eu envie de les secouer quand ils se montraient aveugles.
Ce roman a été écrit d’une belle plume. Il ne possède qu’un défaut : être trop court. On en voudrait vraiment plus. Je lirais sans nul doute la suite.
A touching novel. Characters with their faults but so endearing.
Our two heroes found each other, running away from each other. On the one hand Theo who seems to meet love only to get him brutally torn off. He never stopped being tossed about. On the other hand Jessie who thinks of others but forgets herself on the way.
I sometimes wanted to shake them when they were blind.
This novel was written with a beautiful pen. It has only one defect: to be too short. We really want more. I would definitely read the rest.
