Review & Giveaway: Combust (The Wellingtons #1) by Tessa Teevan

Title: Combust (The Wellington #1)
Author: Tessa Teevan
Release Date: August 19th
After years of being called a tease and then being labeled the Virgin Queen, Andi Kane decides that when she goes off to college, she's ready to ditch the labels. She's grabbing the bull by its horns and riding as wild as she can.

Fate must be smiling on her the night she meets Cohen Wellington, the cute boy-next-door and fellow music lover. Their connection is instant, and as the night progresses, she knows she's found The One. doesn't go exactly the way she had planned it. And even though she can't get him off her mind, some humiliations are just too much to overcome. She walks away, never planning to see him again.

Three years and a whole lot of experience later, Andi and Cohen are suddenly drawn together again, and it doesn't take long before it's clear their connection is stronger than ever.

Fate. Destiny. Kismet. Whatever you want to call it, these two fall hard and fall fast. Their love burns hot, but when their plans for the future seem to move in two different directions, will it be enough to sustain the flames, or will the fire consume them, their relationship combusting before their very eyes?

Sometimes love comes quickly without question, without hesitation, and without fear. But this kind of love is once in a lifetime, and sometimes you just have to ask yourself, can it really last?

*Although these are college aged characters, they are in the contemporary romance genre.

I'm a twenty something book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are my teams! I work for the government during the day, hang out with Air National Guard on the weekends, and have been married to my own book boyfriend for over seven years. We currently live right outside of Dayton, OH with our two cats.

If I’m not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.

I quite enjoyed reading this book. It was a little bit too "tame" in a way that the characters are quite young (in their college years) and at times they act rather childish or irresponsible. But I still liked the story and the way the book is written. It was interesting and intriguing enough to pull me into the characters' lives and keep me reading.

The main characters, Andi and Cohen, are quite lovable. Yes, they still have some growing up to do but they are interesting and fun. The interactions with their friends result in some quite funny situations and I quite enjoyed that. For me Andi was acting more immature than Cohen and I have to say that quite often it was driving me nuts. Despite that I still liked them as a couple and was quite happy with the HEA ending.

I have to say that the parts I enjoyed the most were those whith the whole Wellington family. I loved reading again about Charlie and Knox from Cohen or Andi's POV. And Branson is definitely an enigma that I can't wait to read about.

As a whole the story is fun and intriguing to read and if you like NA books, you will probably love this one. For me it wasn't my favorite but still a pretty good one.
