Product Description

Product Description

man-child. noun.
: a grown man who is exceptionally immature, therefor considered a man-child

manwhore. noun.
: a promiscuous man who has no concern for his sexual partners or the emotional value of his relationships

Rhett Morgan couldn't have been more wrong for me. The guy drank beer in the shower, for crying out loud. He had no prospects for the future, had slept with half the women in our beach town of Kill Devil Hills, and had no desire to change his manwhore ways.

And when Ben Turner, the guy I had loved from afar for the past four years, died and I couldn't get over his death, I desperately needed a distraction. A distraction like Rhett. So I used him for a one-night stand. Because, after all, that's the only thing a guy like Rhett is good for...right?

**New Adult/Contemporary Romance. Book 3 in the Kill Devil Hills Series. Recommended for 18+.

I couldn't get into Rhett's character in this book compared to some of her other books. I found the relationship happened fast, they fell in love fast and the book ended too quickly. Still couldn't put it down though. I love this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars I liked Sydney and Rhett a lot, but I had some problems with their story. 5 September 2015
By Casey M. Britton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Review for Ramblings From This Chick.

Pulled Under is the third book in the Kill Devil Hills series by Sarah Darlington. This book can be read as a standalone as the characters are interconnected, but each book features a different couple. I would recommend reading these in order as there are some things that will be huge spoilers if you start here rather than at the beginning, but it isn't necessary.

Rhett Morgan is known as the town manwhore. There were few women left in Kill Devil Hills that he hadn't slept with. He was also Sydney's first kiss. Sydney had always wanted Ben Turner, but he never saw her as more than a friend. Then two years later just when Sydney had finally thought something was developing between her and Ben, he died. Heartbroken and unable to get over losing Ben, Sydney sought out Rhett looking for something to distract her. But Rhett is tired of being known as the go-to guy for one-night stands, and he is determined to prove to Sydney that he is ready for more.

I liked Sydney and Rhett. I felt like these two had a ton of chemistry and could have had a great connection. However I don't feel as though it was ever actually developed. There were huge chunks of time missing throughout this story, and for the most part, these were all chunks were Sydney and Rhett didn't see each other or speak. I never saw them get to know one another, and most of them time that they spent together was physical. I just wasn't able to buy into their insta-love and connection when we never really got to see them together. I thought that they were hot together, but that was all I really got between them as much as I would have loved to have seen more. Very few interactions took place between them before Rhett was suddenly in love with her and wanting more than just sex. I just didn't see it, even when I wanted to.

Besides the lack of development when it came to their relationship, I also felt as though the ending was extremely abrupt. In the epilogue, Rhett is still feeling insecure in their relationship and he is questioning whether they will still be together and they still hadn't told their friends they were dating. That told me that they clearly hadn't actually developed much of a connection or a strong commitment, or he wouldn't have been second guessing. Why Sarah Darlington decided to still be using the epilogue to try and develop their connection, rather than solidifying that earlier in the story, is something that I couldn't understand. Then it is just over, with little to no warning. It was very unsatisfying, and I couldn't believe that it was as abrupt as it was. So while I loved both Sydney and Rhett and wanted them together so badly, it never felt as though they were actually building anything or had a legit relationship. I felt like they had no real foundation moving forward, other than when it came to sex, and unfortunately it made this entire book seem as though nothing really changed or happened. It was unrealistic, and sadly disappointing. I did give this one 3 stars despite the issues I had because the characters were likable and the times they were together, I really loved them together. I desperately wanted more, as I think that these two could have had such a better story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read! 1 September 2015
By Amazeballs Book Addicts - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved Pulled Under. Sydney's parents would rather have fun and travel they raise children. She lives with her brother John. They come from money but somehow Sydney isn't a snobby rich kid. She a cool down to earth girl.

Rhett is a manwhore. He doesn't even know some of the name of the girls he sleeps with. Sydney has always had a big crush on Ben. She has loved him from afar. Ben passes away and Sydney is having a hard time. Rhett has help her in the past so she goes to him to get over Ben.

For Rhett, Sydney is different. I loved to see Rhett work for the girl he wants. His friends don't cut him any slack about it either.

Their relationship is definitely rocky. Rhett not only has to deal with winning Sydney over but also her brother hating him and a secret Ben has.

I would strongly suggest reading the first two books in the series first. This book connects with the other one and pulls some things together. I was a little disappointed that we didn't get more Ben in this one, I hope he gets his own book.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 sweet, lovable stars for Pulled Under! 1 September 2015
By Carra at Making it Happen blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I really, really love this series. While Pulled Under can be read as a standalone, I really recommend reading the stories in order as it will enhance your enjoyment of the entire series. One of the interesting things from this installment is that some events overlap with things that occur in the previous story, Changing Tides, so it's neat that we get to see things that are happening in the overall series from different characters' perspectives.

We were introduced to Rhett in the first book of the series, and when we meet him again here in Pulled Under, it's a total *swoon* moment...and I kept on swooning the whole way through the story. Yes he's a man-whore. But really, it's kind of past tense now, setting the stage for something more.

Though Sydney knew of Rhett from his reputation in town, she has her first personal encounter with him when she's sixteen (yup, that first swoon moment), then not again until she's become an adult. Sydney comes across as a mature young woman compared to many new adult romance characters I've read, which is quite welcome in a genre where lead characters many times come across as immature and childish (a big thank you to the author for writing her character so well!).

Pulled Under gives us a wonderful playboy-finds-the-one story that kind of has a tiny dose of second chance romance to it (very tiny, but the promise is there from Sydney and Rhett's first scene together), entwined with Sydney trying to get over a perceived lost love. This all makes for an intriguing storyline with a nice shot of drama, and Sydney and Rhett's chemistry give us a nice bit of spice as well.

Rhett turns out to be a wonderfully sweet, romantic man (okay, yes, hot and sexy as well--that's a given), and this story would not be the same without his charming pursuit of Sydney...after all, when you see a playboy character find the one-especially one like Rhett who you just can't help but fall for-the journey from that point on as you read is one that puts a smile on your face and the end result when you're done is a book you know you'll be re-reading again and again.

5 sweet, lovable stars for Pulled Under, and this series is one of my top recommendations for those who love any kind of romance story. For 18+ due to adult language and adult intimate scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Rhett and Sydney! 10 September 2015
By Nikki ~ Saint and Sinners Books~ - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After reading books 1 and 2, I couldn’t wait for book 3. We are introduced to both Rhett and Sydney in the other books. On the outside, it looks like Rhett is a complete man whore with no feelings what so ever and Sydney is this super sweet and shy adorable girl. Those are the people they were but after reading both POVs in this book I understand both characters a lot better and both have a side that no one else sees.

If you read the other 2 books you know there is a HUGE secret that is revealed in book 2. A secret that has shaken everything up and left everyone confused but also hopeful. This book picks up during the first books and we get the missing pieces to the story. It was only supposed to be one night between Rhett and Sydney. He was supposed to be a distraction to her but that’s not at all what happens. Both have started to develop feelings for each other and neither one knows what to do about it.

I love this series because not only do we get the story of the main characters but the secondary characters as well. I love each couple in a different way. Rhett did a complete turn around and I fell completely head over heels for him. Sydney is such a sweet and loveable character. It was also so good to see her grow into her self. When Rhett and Sydney have finally started to figure things out when things are shaken up again. This once again goes back to the secret. I honestly hope there will be another book in this series. I wouldn’t mind seeing some novellas on the other couples are well. Don’t miss out on this series and once you start you will be forever addicted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulled Under 2 September 2015
By Lynn Smith - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I have to start by saying I love this series. Each book is a standalone, but you learn so much more about the characters if you read in order. Sydney is being raised by her brother. her parents are just never around. It is her sweet 16th birthday. A day all girls dream about. Until she gets to school and sees the boy Ben she has had a crush on for awhile getting it on with a Sonya in the girls locker room. Now to top the day off her brother is taking her to dinner at Chancey's Claw. The last thing she wants to do. Steeping outside the restaurant and contemplating how miserable her life is. This is where Rhett Morgan finds her while taking out the trash. Spilling her guts to him, she is surprised when she throws herself at him and gets her first kiss. That's where her brother finds them.

Rhett is the town manwhore. He slips her a note that says "Come find me when you're no longer jail bait". Rhett continues on with his life but has never forgotten Sydney but he is surprised when 2 years later she returns. Sydney is still hung up on the memory of Ben but Rhett's kiss has stuck in her memory. Rhett doesn't so relationships but Sydney has him rethinking that. Sydney wants Rhett but she doesn't want to let go of Ben. Fantastic story line as they both figure out what is real and what is just a memory. I received and arc in exchange for an honest review.
