I wanted what she had, she had what I wanted. With her long blonde hair and her legs that never ended, she had him, but I wanted him.
We can’t always have what we want, and sometimes that’s the way life is meant to be. Sometimes destiny places other people in our path, a path that should not be mixed. But also sometimes, just sometimes, the paths cross, causing an explosive reaction.
Tanner was my crush. A crush that I’ve had since I first laid eyes on him. But now he’s dating my friend… my beautiful, flawless and perfect friend.
Then out of nowhere Kyrone bursts into my life, taking me over bit by bit. I don’t know how to feel about that. I don’t know what to do. He frustrates me. He annoys me. But most of all, he makes me smile.
Theresa Martin’s Review:
CJ has wanted Tanner since the day she met him. Problem is Tanner is dating her friend, so CJ is stuck in the “friend zone”. Kyrone is Tanner’s best friend. Both smokin’ hot college football players, Kyrone is quite the opposite of Tanner. He speaks his mind—albeit a dirty mind—and he has his sights set on CJ. Kyrone is a player, and never sleeps with a girl more than once.
Kyrone shamelessly flirts with CJ, and she repeatedly brushes him off. He makes her smile, laugh, and likes her just the way she is. CJ doesn’t know what it is about him, but something draws her to him. Tanner sees that CJ may be interested in Kyrone, and although he’s dating someone, Tanner finds himself wresting with his own feelings for CJ.
No longer fighting her attraction to Kyrone, CJ starts spending more time with him. Shortly after graduation, CJ leaves Texas for a job in New York and they separate for a while. Though she misses him terribly, CJ tries to move on from Kyrone and date other guys. Kyrone does the same, but CJ is always in his thoughts.
A family tragedy brings them back together, and maybe Kyrone and CJ can finally be together, this time for good. However, fate has a few plans that question their ability to stay together.
This is a beautifully written story that touches all your emotions. CJ is awesome, and Kyrone is…well, he’s Kyrone. I laughed, got choked up, yelled, and cheered throughout this book. I absolutely loved this story.
I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 5 stars.
Review by Lita Thomas:
Antagonize Me by T. L. Smith is the story of Christina better known as CJ to her friends. CJ is a senior a college in Texas. She is a transfer from California and just wants to keep a low profile, dance and hang out with her friends. There is just one one problem. CJ has had a crush on her best friend Tanner a star on the football team but he is going with her other friend Katrina the beautiful and popular cheerleader.CJ puts her feeling to the side and decides to make the best of the situation.They are a close knit group of friends who spend a lot of time together and have a lot of fun. One of the members of the group Kyrone has his eye on CJ. Kyrone however is the football’s team resident man whore and CJ really doesn’t want to be bothered with him. Kyrone antagonizes CJ who he insist on calling her by her given name. This is their story. I can say that I have not laughed this hard reading a book in quite some time. Theirs is a story of ups and downs, highs and lows.
Not only did I laughed but I cried as well. I could not get enough of CJ and Kyrone’s story. I look forward to another book with them and the gang. I give this story 4.5 O’s
Shannon Pacsuta’s Review:
You know what they say about the best laid plans, right? You think you have everything all planned out and then life throws you a curve ball. It’s up to you at that point to strike out or take a chance and hit it out of the park. That’s what Antagonize Me by T.L. Smith is all about…taking that chance and possibly hitting a home run. Christina a/k/a CJ thinks she knows exactly what and who she wants, and that person is one of her best friends, Tanner. The problem? He’s dating one of her friends. Then there’s Kyrone. He’s a character and a half. The things that came out of his mouth would have me cracking up! He’s good looking, plays football with Tanner, and can have any girl he wants. But what if the one girl he wants doesn’t want him? He annoys her, antagonizes her…but what if he is exactly what she needs?
“You will meet plenty of people that will make you feel things you never expected. Some good and some bad, but sometimes, just sometimes, they will flip your world on its a**. And when that happens, Angel, you will know. You will know… that is your person.”
This is the first book that I’ve read by T.L. Smith and I really enjoyed it. It was a quick, easy read that had me cracking up at times and tearing up at others. I would give Antagonize Me 3.5 stars.
