Product Description

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. Only...it 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?

5.0 out of 5 stars This book made me feel giddy like a teenager!!! I LOVE IT! 21 August 2014
By Mara (Mara's Bookshelf) - Published on Amazon.com

5 Combustible Stars!

If you see a Tessa Teevan book, you can bet your ass I’m all over that one! This lady must have a huge sack of magic dust with her when she writes her stories because they always make me giddy and swoon like a teenage girl who’s experiencing her first love. She can write about injured soldiers, hot teachers, and college students and still have that spark in each of them.

Combust is a little different than the first books she has written but it is as equally, if not a tad bit more, as sexy as the Explosive series books. But even though this is a story of 2 college students which would fall under New Adult, this is still all Contemporary Romance. Fun, charming and sexy, Cohen and Andi rocked my world in that hours I spent my nose buried on my Kindle reading! I did sort of send some of my silly feedback while she’s writing Combust.

What I absolutely loved more about this book is the significance of music into Cohen and Andi’s story. Being a music lover myself, I appreciate how Tessa incorporated songs and artists into scenes and conversations of the two characters. It made Combust that more enjoyable for me! I loved seeing songs and Cohen and Andi relate to the music that they love. They were so geeky when they talk music and so carefree, it’s hard not to fall in love with them.

Timing, misunderstanding and a teenage way of handling things got in the way of what could’ve been a good start of a friendship, or relationship, or just whatever between those two. But we know that the world moves in mysterious ways and everything has its own time, right? I’m glad about that because Cohen and Andi just got another shot years after that awkward night.

For most part of their story, I was cheering on Cohen. He’s such a charming dude and Tessa easily made me picture an adorable 18-year old boy turn into one sexy, confident 21-year old young man. Gone was the innocent-like vibe that that teenage Cohen has, he’s now turned into one young man who oozes confidence. He was already sexy in my eyes when he was being a music nerd that first night but adding up the new Cohen? Combustible. I think Tessa was up to something with the title!

“I know what I want, and I’m not going to waste my time.”
“And what do you want, Andi?”
“You, Cohen.”

Andi is another heroine to love. I don’t think I’ve hated any heroine that Tessa wrote. They’re all strong, self-reliant, endearing and Andi’s an addition to Tessa Teevan’s awesome heroines! Andi Kane, at first she was funny, then she became more likeable because she’s as much a music nut as Cohen is, then I started feeling like wanting to kick her ass until she sees some sense, and finally she made me love her with her fiery personality. She admits the mistake that she’s done before but instead of wallowing in the what-ifs and could-have-beens, she surprised me by now being upfront and honest in what she wants and these characteristics of hers made her and Cohen’s relationship drama-free and easy for the most parts.

For me, this is one of Tessa’s “lighter” books but this didn’t lessen the enjoyment I’ve had while reading Combust. If any, this just goes to show how diverse Tessa Teevan’s writing skill can get. Now, I’m excited for more of the spin-off books as much as I am with the Explosive series!

Stars: 5 stars!
Recommended to: Readers who want lighter, (almost) drama-free love story. This is an amazing one! POV: First person. Dual POV.
Series: Yes.
Cliffhanger: No.
Extra Comment: There’s entertaining appearances by my most loved Knox Wellington and the rest of the family. Knox gives good advice and he’s as funny as I remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars FIVE STARS 20 August 2014
By Patty from Wrapped Up In Reading Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the fifth book I've read by Tessa, and I can honestly say, she continues to deliver fabulous stories with just the right amount of steam and each book boyfriend is better than the last.
I FREAKIN LOVED COHEN!!!!!

Where was this boy, when I was a freshman in college??!!!
Cohen Wellington is Knox's younger brother, we met him "Incinerate".
Never did I expect that he would be even more swoon worthy than all the men in Tessa's previous books, but HOLY HELL was he ever!!

Andi Kane aka "Blue Ball Extraordinaire", has held on to her virginity for most of her teenage years. She's been satisfied with going to 3rd base and dry humping, but now as a Freshman at the University of Tennessee, she is thinking it's time to lose it to someone she might meet at school.

Andi and Cohen meet at a college frat party.
There's instant chemistry and both share a deep love for music.
I enjoyed how most of their relationship is described by various songs from different music genres.
The night they meet, Andi goes with Cohen to his dorm room.
Passionate kissing turns into heavy petting, which eventually leads to some amazing oral sex for both, and then the SEX!!
Has anyone ever had a guy that lasted 10 seconds???
I can tell you it's a HUGE LET DOWN!!

Cohen is beyond mortified, but he has an excuse.
He was also a virgin.
So both lost their virginity in "one pump".
Cohen promises that round two will be much better.
He's completely infatuated with Andi and looking forward to spending time with her.
Andi, was a complete idiot, and ends up sneaking out of his room the next morning, while Cohen sleeps.
She thinks he will regret the night they had and believes things will be awkward if she stays in his room. BIG MISTAKE ANDI!!!

THREE YEARS go by, and circumstances bring the two together.
Cohen and Andi never forgot one another and during those years apart, they dated other people, but no one of significance.

The attraction is still very much alive and dare I say, SCORCHING HOT!!!
Cohen has learned a lot in the last three years and Andi is the lucky girl that gets to reap the benefits.

The sexual tension is beyond frustrating!!
Cohen refuses to have sex right away because he wants their relationship to work and to make sure their first time is special.
Andi is not so happy about this and I didn't blame her.
I was reminded of a certain Jace McAllister aka "Blue Clit Master"!!!

Andi and Cohen's relationship seems to take off at warp speed.
But when you get a second chance to be with someone who you felt an incredible connection to, sometimes it's just meant to be. To waste any more time would be tragic.

For the first half of the book, I found myself irritated with Andi for her stupid insecurities but in the second half, it's Cohen that acted the fool a couple of times.
But Cohen apologizes in the most amazing ways!!

"I could never form the right words myself to properly tell you how much I love you. How much I need you. How deeply ingrained in my soul you've become. You're in every song, every note, and I only wish I had the ability to write the lyrics to your song."

There were so many excerpts I highlighted and each and every time I was just so amazed at how truly gifted Tessa is with the written word.
What I love about her is that when she writes a series, she doesn't make you wait 6 months to a year like some authors for the next book, and I know that the book that we get is going to be something special.

Well "COMBUST" was a knock out for me!!
I read it slowly, to enjoy every minute of it.
I think a little piece of my heart has Cohen's name on it now.

I highly recommend reading this one!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I call dibs on Cohen Wellington!!! Thank you for such an amazing book, Tessa! 19 August 2014

Ok. I'm about to say a bad word. Ready? You sure?

Alright. Here it goes...Virgin!

So, it's not really a bad word, but it's a word no one wants to say about themselves. For Andi Kane, this word is what defines her. She's been called a tease by pretty much every guy that she has come in contact with. "Blue Ball Extraordinaire. The Virgin Queen." She just hasn't been able to give up the "V" Card just yet. Now, she's starting college and she's going to take the plunge. Pick a guy and just do it! At least that's the advice her best friend and roommate, Reese, tells her to do. What she didn't expect was to find a guy with a secret just like her own.

Enter Cohen Wellington. Y'all have NO IDEA how much I love this boy!! His dirty blonde hair, emerald green eyes and goofy grin had me wanting to jump through the book myself! Andi and Cohen meet by chance at a frat party. They bond over their love of music and the fact that neither of them wanted to be there.

"I didn't think I'd enjoy coming here, but I was wrong. I'll always remember the ruby-haired beauty in the Elton John shirt."

So, they leave for Cohen's dorm to listen to music. That's all!! But after some beers and a whole flask later, things start leading in a different direction. The attraction was too strong, so why not go ahead and hand in that card?

"Cohen was exactly who I wanted to lose it to."

"Are you sure, Ruby? I don't want you to regret me in the morning."

But the first time isn't always what you dreamt it to be. Sometimes it just ends as a huge awkward moment. And buddy was is awkward!

"Holy Crap. Had I really just lost my virginity in ONE PUMP? Did that even count?"

Oh, man! I felt so bad for Cohen at this point. To make matters worse, he wakes up alone. Andi tries to walk away from a bad situation before it happens. She even tried to dating to get her mind off everything.

What she didn't count on was regreting the way she left things and it would be a long time before she would rectify it.

"We'll always have music, right?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Three years have went by since Cohen has seen Andi. He has put his studies first. Who would have thought that one day they would meet again because of chemistry? The school subject not the attraction factor. Although, the moment they see each other, there's no denying they still have exactly that...chemistry.

"It's nice to officially meet you, Andi Kane. Just for the record, in case you forgot, I'm Cohen Wellington."

"Just for the record, Cohen Wellington, I never forgot."

Holy Jeebus!! Grown up Andi and Cohen are a force to be reckoned with! Even after so many years apart, they still are drawn to each other. After their embarrassing first night together, they can now make up for it.

"And what do you want, Andi?"
"You, Cohen. What I want. What I've wanted for far too long is you. Just you."

But things don't always go as planned. Plans and other people can get in the way. Misunderstandings and secrets come to the surface. Can they get past them? Can they prove to themselves that they can make it?

"Don't worry, Ruby. I'll always catch you."
"Even if I fall?"
"Especially then."

There are not enough words to express how much I loved this book!!!
Cohen Wellington stole my heart in Incinerate and now, I love him even more!! Ask Tessa, I'm his #1 fan;) hehe!

I loved everything about this book. It was humorous to the point that my sides hurt from laughing. But it also pulled at my heartstrings so much that I couldn't stop the tears from falling. Andi and Cohen's story isn't a normal everyday love story.

Their story started as an awful first experience that lead to a "One-Minute Man" status, and it eventually lead to an amazing love story that the greatest lyrics are written about.

This book also had amazing song and musical artist references! The songs got stuck in my head while reading:) The secondary characters were so great! I love Teddy (even though Cohen isn't too fond of him;))!! Plus, we get to see those Wellington brothers again!!

Tessa did an amazing job with this book! I'm so happy she started The Wellington's! I'm even more happy she started with Cohen. Seriously, I have an obsession with him;) haha! You will not be disappointed with this book!

"My world isn't a sad song at all. It never will be as long as Ruby is mine. And if I have it my way, she'll be mine forever."

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars for the potential. 23 August 2014
By u mad, bro? - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I do believe that Combust have great potential. However, I wasn't able to fully enjoy the reading because I was annoyed by the way the book was written. I'm not saying in any way, shape, or form that it was bad written. I just couldn't connect with it.
The author thought it was a good idea to justified everything that the characters were doing. And I'm not talking about a simple explanation. No! it was a full rambling. I was like: "okay, I get it. Just stop! Let the readers take their own conclusions!".

The same thing happened with the dialogues. The characters wouldn't shut up! it was like verbal diarrhea disaster!

This is my first book of Tessa Teevan, so I'm not familiar with her character from another series. And they just kept popping into the story without a brief presentation of who they were, whatsoever

That being said, I'm giving Combust 3 stars for the potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!! 9 December 2014
By Beverly - Reading is Sexy Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I first need to begin this review, by saying this book is set in Knoxville, TN, which happens to be my home. I first have to give props to Tessa for accurately portraying the lifestyle of a Univeristy of Tennessee student. I loved the shout to our bars and restaurants, and our loyal fans. I loved this book period, but I was so excited every time one of the characters went to a bar or restaurant I frequent.

Andi Kane is from Bethel, TN. Bethel is a tiny town and all there is to do there is gossip. When your father is the Mayor and your brother is a star baseball player, it's not difficult to figure out people are talking about you and your family. While in high school Andi realized that she had become the gossip topic of choice amongst her peers, when she dated a boy for a few years and refused to have sex with him. Andi didn’t refuse sex because she was super religious or waiting for marriage, no she just enjoyed drying humping, or as me and my friends called it cameling so much so she didn’t see the point in having actual sex. Then once it became a challenge for the guys in her school, she decided she couldn’t have sex because all these guys were trying to use her to win bets.

Andi decides every thing will change once she is moves to Knoxville to attend The University of Tennessee with her bestie, Reese. Reese has been dating Cy for years, and he decides to pledge a fraternity. At one of the first frat parties of the year, Andi meets Cohen Wellington. Cohen and Andi were both dragged there by their best friends and have no desire to be amongst their drunken peers. After chatting they learn that they both have a love for music, so they leave to go listen to music. (Oh to be young again where leaving with a stranger didn’t make you freak out at all the possible dangers.)

Andi and Cohen do listen to music and get to know each other, it is a pretty epic night for them both - they both have met someone that they could genuinely care about. Well, I think we know where this is going, one thing leads to another and they end up having sex. Now we know this is Andi’s first time, but as it turns out it is Cohen’s first time, too. So, I know what you are thinking…another book with an epic, virgin sex scene where they connect so completely they come together…right?

Well, I believe this may be the first time I have read a virgin "losing it" scene that is so completely accurate. He puts it in, she screams in pain, he comes…yep…

Another reason I am a huge Tessa fan now! You go Tessa, way to write a book that isn’t all rainbows and unicorns! Despite this horrible encounter, you think they still had this great connection, and it will be better the next time. Well no, because Cohen gets a little too attached and Andi begins avoiding him.

Fast forward three years, they are both seniors and Andi needs to take a chemistry class to graduate. There is a reason she has been putting it off, there is no way she can pass it on her own. Therefore, the student center assigns a tutor to her, enter pre-med major Cohen Wellington.

It has been three years since Cohen and Andi have seen each other, and he refuses to let his chance go again. Andi has dated a few guys and has never connected with anyone like she did that first night with Cohen, so she doesn’t want to waste this chance either.

Once Cohen decides he is all in, he begins wooing her. This wooing just drives Andi crazy, because Cohen isn’t the scrawny boy he once was, no he is all man and she is in desperate need of him.

Obviously, I loved this book. I loved the connection between Andi and Cohen. I liked how they went their separate ways grew up and then came back together. I felt the story had a perfect balance of angst, sex, and love. It wasn’t over the top in any category. I absolutely loved the writing. I loved how real it was and completely believable. I love how when Andi began feeling things for Cohen she called herself out for having insta-love for him.

“Well, I’m pretty sure I’m about to be a hypocrite, because I’m about two point five seconds away from being a silly rom-com statistic, and I have no idea what I’m going to do about it.”

Overall, I feel like this a great read and highly recommend it.
