Review - Ten Year Crush by Toshia Slade

Review for Ten Year Crush by Toshia Slade

Sometimes a crush can break you.

When Gabby Murphy landed in her brother's best friend's lap her whole world shifted.

But after years of watching Cam go through women her heart can't take anymore. Now in college, she's finally ready to get on with her life. Her new boyfriend is the perfect man to squash her craving for Cam. But her boyfriend has an addiction, an obsession that Gabby soon finds out he can't let go.

Some cravings last forever.

When Camron Taylor received a thump to the head, he couldn't help but adore Gabby. When she grows from cute kid to desirable woman his imagination goes to places it shouldn't. Afraid of ruining friendships he pushes her away. Until something seems off with her new boyfriend.

The past isn't always left there.

Cam is the savior she's always needed. Gabby is the woman he's always coveted. When past mistakes come back with a vengeance will their love be strong enough to fight it? Or will the past keep them apart?

This story is about a girl who has been in love with the same man since she was eleven years old. She tried everything she could to get him out of her head.... and  her heart. I loved this story! My heart hurt for both Gabby and Cam. Gabby is ready to put her heart out there on the line for the man that she loves, only to find out he's not willing to do the same. After they both tell each other what they both want to hear, the wedge between the two grows bigger. 

Cam doesn't want to mess up his relationship with Gabby or her brother Josh (who is also his best friend), so he feels it's best to stay away! I was sooooo mad at Cam! There is no way to save everyone's heart. It's a lose-lose situation! After a while, I understand Cam's conflicts and after running through many many, MANY women, he finally has that little light bulb pop on in his head! FINALLY! But now Cam has a massive amount of work to do to make up for all his past mistakes. I enjoyed this book and all the little twists and turns throughout. I don't want to give too  much away, so I'll keep this short. Cam realizes his huge mistake just in time to save Gabby from, what is sure to be, the worst relationship of her life. Gabby is naive, when it comes to her new boyfriend at first, and it takes Cam showing her the truth for her to finally see the light. Now, it is taking everything in her to stay safe. 

Will Cam and Gabby have a life together? Is there a happily ever after in the books for them? You'll just have to read it to find out ;) 4 Star!!
