Unlike the superhero his mother named him after, Parker is no good guy.
In fact, if there’s a picture in the dictionary under anti-hero, it’s his.
Parker’s spent his life trying to get back on the right side of the tracks, but each step he takes forward, he takes two more steps back.
To save one, he hurts others. To make this good, he turns that bad.
For appearances’ sake, he plays the part. He does what people expect him to do—mostly. And at the end of each day, he goes back to his lonely apartment and wishes he was a different person. One who could fix the things he’s broken.
Then Kayla Nash forces her way into his life, and the world as he knows it is irrevocably changed.
Everything he thinks he has right is wrong. And everything he thinks is wrong is oh, so right.
One thing leads to another, and suddenly he’s growing a conscience, and trying to prove to her that he’s as bad as everybody says he is.
Yet she won’t listen.
She’s convinced that she can save him.
Little does she know, Parker isn’t worth saving, and never will be.
I kinda don’t wanna type up this review for Maybe Don’t Wanna. Ha see what I did there? But seriously I don’t know how I truly feel about this one. I liked it, I liked it a lot to be honest but something kept me from loving it completely. As I stated before I wasn’t a huge fan of the series this one is sort of a spin off from but I wanted to keep an open mind and give it a shot. I still plan on continuing this series because I am such a huge fan of this author so please don’t think I will be stopping.
I think one reason why I had a hard time with this series is how Parker was treated by a lot of different people. When you know why you can see it but at the same time if you know the past (a previous book in a different series explains certain things) sometimes we do things we don’t want to do when we think it will protect others, when in reality it makes everything worse. Parker got treated horribly and that bothered me a lot. Add into the equation Kayla, who I liked but quickly hated her immaturity at times and I wanted more for Parker, because if anyone deserves to be happy it is him after all he has lived through.
Now don’t get me wrong there are plenty of hilarious moments and sexy times that we have come to know and love from Lani Lynn Vale’s books. I am just going to say a certain pick up order that was placed well, I had tears in my eyes from laughing as hard as I did. While this one may not have been a homerun for me (read the book, you will understand) I did still overall enjoy it.
