Binding 13 (Boys of Tommen, #1) by Chloe Walsh

“I think I need you for keeps.”

Resume: Johnny Kavanagh has everything going for him. On the rugby pitch, he’s a force to be reckoned with. Plagued with a hidden injury and desperate to impress the scouts watching his every move, Johnny has been placed on a pedestal so high, he has no room to make mistakes. Life has never been easy for Shannon Lynch. Bullied and tortured, she arrives at Tommen College mid-way through the school year praying for a fresh start and desperate to shake off the demons that plague her. Friendship, first love, rising fame, horrifying secrets, and pain all fuel together in Binding 13.

“”In one stare, I felt like I had collided with him. It was instant and shocking. My feelings exploded inside of me, absorbing the boy and all he was like a sponge that was desperate for water. I was desperate for him. All of him. Every piece and part.”

If I could, I would give it 10000 stars. Beautiful, heartbreaking, funny. Real characters, a bit slow paced but the author really build a strong book with a good storyline.

Kav is so perfect. He is famous, rich yet so human, so protective, so funny, so real. His love for rugby and his distress for his future is so intense. His feelings for Shan are so pure and warmed my heart.

Shan is so broken. She’s so strong, so nice, so pure. Poor, 4 brothers, drunk dad, passive mother. She doesn’t fight back, she gets hurt over and over again yet she keeps pushing and pushing, having faith and feeling love. I love her so much.

Gibsie, Claire, Joye.. There’s so many wonderful secondary characters. All with great personalities and so different from each other. They complement the story, they boost the storyline.

The author delivered so many moments that made me cry, so many moments I want to kick someone, so many moments I cried because I was laughing so hard.
No words can describe my feelings right now.

I can’t wait for book 2 and more from all characters.
