Overview

Gable by Harper Bentley

Gable Powers had all the makings of everything my father had ever warned me about: a reputation that was anything but stellar, a dirty mouth that had me shivering at the things he uttered in my ear, and a body (oh, God, that body) that was covered in tattoos, all of which added up to a solid ten-point-oh on the bad-boy scale.

The first time I met him, I instantly loathed him.

The second time was even worse.

He was a jerk. He was an ass.

He had secrets.

He was nothing I thought I ever wanted.

So why couldn't I resist him?

New adult. Not recommended for readers under 17.

You know how much we love us some Harper Bentley around here, she broke my heart with Jag and I’ve been hooked ever since. Therefore, when she offered up an arc of Gable, her latest release Trish and I jumped on it. But then it sat on my kindle without me reading it. It wasn't that I didn’t want to read Gable, I did, it was all about my fear of 'what if I hate it?' When Trish and I started this blog we made a pact that we would always give honest reviews regardless of arc or friend status. Our thoughts were (and still are) that it’s lying if we only reviewed books we could give good ratings to or if we gave a book a higher rating just because we had an arc. And trust me, there are many times when both of us have kicked ourselves for that decision, it would be so much easier the other way. So, as I am every time I take an arc from an author I really enjoy I was full of fear that I wouldn't like it and then would have to say so on the blog. Thankfully, that did not happen. Overall Rating: 4.75 Stars – Screw sleep! I’ll let the kids watch TV and eat hot dogs tomorrow. I really had a love hate thing going on with the characters in this story. Let’s get the first thing out of the way, our heroine, Scout. Yes, you read that correctly, Scout. Come on Harper, Scout? Really? ::head shake:: :) Anyway, Scout, yes that’s her real name, is a moron. She gives out personal information way too easily and just kind of is… well like I said a moron. She also totally over thinks things and has some freak out moments, which I absolutely loved. It not only made her character feel more real, but felt like something I would do as well. I could so relate, I get myself into crazy situations then over think them until I drive myself crazy. Basically she was a moron I could love. Gable, our hero… yes, Gable. Again Harper, really? Gable? Gable, starts out as a huge jerk face. He’s hitting on other girls, being a total player, you know me, I get possessive of my heroes and Gable was just not playing along with this. He gets better in time and I ended up really like him, he makes up for all his earlier douche-canoe-ness. I wish we would have had more character development on Gable’s side, but his jerky ways were cute over time. I know, just take my feminist card, I don’t deserve it any longer. That’s not to say there weren’t a few things in the story that stood out to me as not amazing. When I first started reading I found the story moved really quickly. We just jumped from one event involving the both of them to another, I would have liked to have seen more world building in that time period. I haven’t expounded on the story much because for me it was all about the feelings reading this book brought out in me. There were even times when I didn’t particularly enjoy what I was reading (when Scout was being a moron), but I was still totally wrapped up in their story. These two write some really cute emails between each other (that’s the only spoiler you’ll get out of me) and I didn’t want the emails to stop, I swooned every time I read one. As I said above, Harper has killed me in the past with her damn cliffhangers in the True Love Series so I was praying that this story was a stand alone and thank the baby kittens it was. I read Gable in one sitting because Harper has done it again. She’s written a book that I almost hate while reading, but once I’m done I can’t stop the warm gushy feelings that emanate from me for days after. I just loved this book. Regardless if you’ve read any HB stuff before I suggest you pick up Gable and give it a shot. There is no cliffy to worry about and I hope when you’re done you’ll be in love as much as I was.

The suspence kept me going. I actually liked Gable and understood his turmoil. But I wasnt a huge fan of Scout and her way of handling things. The writing was just okay -- nothing that blew me away.

First, it's blasphemy to invoke Scout's name in such a rediculous story. The stream of consciousness is annoying, not engaging. The reader doesn't actually see any of the action, we just hear whining. These kids make juvenile choices and the entirety of their encounters is predictable and drab.

The overall storyline was not bad. Love Gable. I do wish it were more played out with more plot. Also, Scout is really just young, dumb, and stubborn. I suppose you could blame the last two on her being young, but this book is really just based on her stupid decisions about halfway through. I could've used more scenes with Gable and Scott rather than her friends. I feel like Gable fell in love with her by the end, but they really didn't spend significant time together, and after what he went through, you would think it would take more to pull that emotion from him. Overall, I still like this book and will continue on with the series

I sometimes get tired of what I believe are foolish behaviors by the woman involved in the relationship.

Cute story but i really didn't like Scout. She was way to overdramatic and immature. Gable should have moved on cause she wasn't worth it.
