I can't stop thinking about that prick.
Caulter Sterling is a prick.
A filthy-mouthed, womanizing, crude, spoiled, arrogant prick.
The tattooed, pierced, panty-melting-hot son of a celebrity.
I hate him.
He's slept his way through practically every girl at Brighton Academy.
Except for me.
I'm the good girl. The responsible girl. The 4.0, class president, studied-so-much-she-never-lost-the-big-V girl.
And in celebration of graduation and adulthood, I just made the worst decision in the history of ever.
I lost my V-card to the devil himself.
It was just one night. So what if it was mind-blowing? Hit it and quit it.
Except I just found out that my father - the Senator, the Presidential hopeful - is marrying Caulter's mother. Oh, and this summer? We're hitting the campaign trail.
One big happy family.
I'm totally f**ked.
Prick was my first book by Sabrina Paige, and surely won’t be my last. Not only was Prick a sweet, angst-filled romance, it was also so fucking hot and dirty, my panties melted into oblivion.
I basically devoured the book in one day, not able to get enough of the hotness that is Caulter Sterling. He could be a prick to me anytime.
Losing your virginity to the manwhore personified might be not so thrilling in hindsight. Losing it to your future step-brother, as it turns out a few weeks later, would be enough to make any girl ready to die of shame.
Even more so when the father is a politician, advertising family values and the soon-to-be stepmother is a Hollywood starlet.
This is exactly what life suddenly is like for Kate, after she sleeps with Caulter. Not only does she have to worry about a possible public fallout if anyone finds out, but now she’s also confronted on a daily basis with the man who got her all hot and bothered. The only one to ever really make her feel.
That wouldn’t be such a big problem, if he wasn’t a complete jerk and if she wasn’t hopelessly attracted to him.
But in all honesty…how could she not be?
Caulter Sterling is sex personified. Rebellious, cocky, with a don’t-give-a-damn attitude, he oozes sexiness and charisma like nobody’s business. And up until now, he jumped from one girl to another, never lingering too long. This changes with Kate. After just one night with her, he knows he canÔÇÖt get enough. HeÔÇÖs addicted to her and although it starts out as purely physical, it quickly becomes moreÔÇöeven if he might not be aware of it at first.
But there was more to himÔÇöeven if most people never got to see it. Always in the limelight thanks to his motherÔÇÖs fame, heÔÇÖs been surrounded by phony people who wanted him for his connection to Hollywood and his fame as a bad boy, instead of wanting him for him. So the fact that Kate doesnÔÇÖt put up with his crap and calls him out on it, is new and refreshing to him, making her even more attractive.
Caulter was a fun character. His crudeness and sexiness made it hard to be offended or annoyed with him. Being mad at him was not an option.
Neither was it for Kate. SheÔÇÖs a politicianÔÇÖs daughter, a young girl on her way to college who has so far pretended more than she has lived. Always thinking about her fatherÔÇÖs career, she was basically a dollÔÇönever doing what sheÔÇÖd love to do, but what her father expects of her.
That started to change when she slept with Caulter. He woke something up in herÔÇöa longing to be happy, to shed the mask sheÔÇÖs been wearing for years. The mask of a good daughter, future Harvard student, nice girl next door. ItÔÇÖs only through CaulterÔÇÖs rebellious streak and his pushing and questioning that she started to think about what she truly wants and what makes her happy. And it turns out it had nothing to do with what her father wants.
Though a goody good girl, she was neither na├»ve nor prissy and I really liked that about her. Despite her conservative father and upbringing, she wasn’t judgmental or conceited, but a really nice and sweet girl.
The chemistry between them was sizzling and breath-taking. And the sexÔÇª.OMGÔÇªthe sex was mind-blowing. And there was lots of it. ItÔÇÖs not like Caulter managed to leave his hands off of Kate for more than a few pages. That boy has stamina.
But the story wasnÔÇÖt just about sex. There was heart-ache and drama, there was a lot of depth and a strong coming-of-age theme that portrayed perfectly the angst and the self-discovery of a young grown-up. I loved every little bit of it.
Sabrina Paige has definitely gained a new fan.
4 a-prick-is-not-so-bad stars.
