Review for This Beautiful Thing by Amanda Heath

This Beautiful Thing

By, Amanda Heath


Teagan Harper doesn’t have much experience with guys. Her twin brothers have made sure of that. Until one night at a college party she gives them the slip, finding herself in the arms of the most amazing guy she has ever met. Now she's on a mission to find him since she ran from his bed. And forgot to ask his name...

Declan Sage has had control over his entire life. But that is all about to change when the girl who ran out of his bed turns his life upside down. She is about to throw that control out the window. But he’s pretty sure that’s a good thing seeing as she stole his heart...
I thought this book was amazing. It had a realistic feel to it. I have been getting more and more into contemporary new adult books. I like a little naughtiness in my books, although I still love YA with all my heart. Amanda Heath took a situation that could have happened to anyone and wrote a story about it. I love the whole playboy falls for the good girl. I LOVE ME SOME BAD BOYS! Had to get that out of the way :)
Amanda Heath is an Indie author everyone needs to look out for. Her story telling skills hold tons of emotion, there were times I felt like the butterflies were going to burst from my stomach when there were scenes with Declan. (sigh)
 I gave this book five stars. Even though I have no idea what an over-protective brother feels like I have friends that have them. Teagan was going through a lot and she found forbidden love  along the way, it was an incredibly beautiful love story.
I did have one problem, and I don't want to give away spoilers, so here is me trying to explain it. Teagan experienced something at the end of the book, that yes, is going to make you weep. And she ended up pushing Declan away. In my mind I kept thinking why? I had went through the same thing and I wanted my boyfriend there with me. It was confusing, but everyone reacts differently to different things. Still loved the book, and I thought it had a lot of great and creative elements in it.
TEAGAN-- She is the youngest sibling of six, and also the only one with a different mother. Two of her oldest brothers are twins and completely overprotective. She ends up getting drunk at a party and making out with a boy who she didn't know. She didn't even know his name, and a lot are you guys are probably thinking she was a hoe are something. She was far from it, she was very sheltered, and shit happens. Like Bob Marley said: Make sure your hands are clean before you point a finger at me. She ends up falling for Mysterious man Declan. (yummy)
DECLAN: A football playing jock, who has an award winning smile, who can stop traffic with his good looks. Makes his entrance in the book with getting a drink thrown in his face. Loved it! He had confidence and the scenes he was in made my heart quicken. I love when characters make you feel for them, and having a very sexy guy doesn't hurt either.

"I love you." She whispered in my ear. I get chills all over my skin and quickly look for a place we can hide away for a while.
"No, you don't, Teagan. You need to show him how much you love him. Holly wasn't anything to fight for, but Declan is. Relationships like yours don't come around all that often. You need to show him that you really love him and that you're not going to make the same mistake twice."
