Resentment - Nicole London 

Released:Oct.29, 2015
Series: None
Contemporary, Romance, New Adult, Erotica


The act of hating – no, fucking loathing Dean Collins. (Yes, I’m well aware that’s not the actual definition, but it might as well be . . .)

It’s been ten years since we've seen each other and the feelings are still as strong.

I’m not going to bore you with all the details of how our love was once intoxicating, consuming, and perfect.

Because it was . . . until it wasn't.

I've been fine without him. I haven’t missed his cruelty, his coldness and his spite.

And after the ugliest breakup in the history of breakups, I forced myself to move on.

Year by year, the feelings I had for him slowly drifted away, but one encounter with him recently changed everything. One encounter made me realize how the heart doesn't forget shit, and how my mind is going to have to work overtime to make sure I never forget my definition of resentment.

Squeee, round of applause, gasp, shut the front door, just a few emotions I’m feeling after completing Resentment. Especially since this just so happens to be Nicole London’s debut novel, needless to say I will continue to check for whatever works she puts out.I could not believe I actually got caught up in my feels, it was a great things tho.

Resentment is not your typical boy meets girl and they fall in love with a dash of petty drama and a happy ending on top. This one actually had me very excited to get to the next page. Now going in I knew everything would not be rainbows and butterflies, but the most meaningful part of the journey. I could not get enough of Mia and Dean banter over the years, which allowed me to adore what they had more. Their story is told over 3 stages Regret,Resentment and Redemption.

Regret - Tells the story of how Dean and Mia became to be. I thought the lengths Dean went to get Mia’s attention were kind of cute. Once alone it didn’t take long to realize for them to realize they were not only compatible, but had similar home lives as well. I found it interesting how they both never shared how bad they actually had it. Once you start to get high on the good feeling that Dean and Mia share then you’re suckered pouched by none other than Dean it's like WHAT. THE.F! just happened. My feelings were hurt too. Please note I hate you Dean and you’re a douche.  photo London24_zpsv4bo9wsp.png

Resentment - Fast forward 10 years. Fed up with the direction life is going Mia decides to move in with her brother so she can start over. Before she arrived she learned he had a roommate and can you guess who that happens to be. You only get one guess.Immediately not only did I want to throat pouch him, but also junk pouch him. AT THE SAME TIME.

Redemption - While living together Dean and Mia are forced to coexist under one roof. After much petty antics, tension that you can't believe, and after a drunken kiss it wasn’t surprising sex was next to follow. Eventually we learn why Dean was a complete douche and while I don’t like his reason, I completely get it.

The story is told mainly from Mia’s POV, which was still entertaining,angsty, and face paced. I enjoyed every minute of this story that Nicole created. Honestly I can’t wait to experience more of her talented writing. I would definitely recommend this if you are a fan of second chance love.


“Are you coming to the pep rally tonight?” he asks.

“Probably not.”


“School spirit isn’t really my thing. No offense, but…football isn’t either.”

He laughs, and I suddenly realize that the two of us have never talked about football during our sessions together. In fact, whenever I’ve brought it up, he’s changed the subject to something else.

“Well,” he says, letting my hand go. “You should come for me instead.”

“What? What do you mean?”

“I mean, since you’re not into school spirit or football, but you’re clearly into me, you can make an exception and come tonight.”

“You’re getting quite presumptuous lately.” I put on my best poker face. “Do I need to help you with that definition?”

“Not when I know the true word you’re looking for is cognizant.” He grins, stepping back. “I hope to see you tonight.”

“I’ll think about it.”

“I’m sure you always do.” He gives me a look so sexy that I almost melt into the floor.

Goddamn, Dean Collins…
