Read My Lips by Daryl Banner Review

I ran away from the glitz and privilege of my famous New York City family to this small-town Texas college to find myself. I didn't expect to find him...

...the muscular, tatted bad-boy who would soon become my obsession.

He was broken, lost, and voiceless ... just like me.

His eyes smoldered me with one look.
His touch awakened the woman inside me.

And through his lips, his perfect, plush, kissable lips, he drew out the inspiration deep in my soul I did not know was there.

I needed to believe that he could save me. I wanted him to help me find my voice at last ... the voice that would set me apart from my tragically perfect family, the voice that would finally break me free ...

If only he could hear a word of it.

The College Obsession Romance series centers around a group of friends and the relationships they form during their time at a small-town Texas school. They are angsty, steamy new adult novels with HEAs and NO cheating. Although they are obsession-themed romances, there are no stalkers or psychos!

Available on KU


Read My Lips (A College Obsession Romance, #1)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m not familiar with stage acting, music or sign language, but I could tell the author is knowledgeable and has experience with them all, which really helped the story to flow and be more interesting. Read My Lips is written mostly from Dessie’s (the female lead) point of view, but also has a good bit from Clayton’s (her male love interest). I think the author does a good job of voicing both sexes.

Everyone in Dessie’s family is famous and talented. She left New York and came all the way to Texas searching for an authentic college experience. Clayton has a bit of a reputation. After loosing his hearing, he decided to be bigger, tougher and more intimidating than anyone who might bully him. Both are trying to figure out their place in the world

If you like college romances you should try this one for sure. It also has steamy moments if that’s what you like. Read My Lips is a fun and sexy new adult romance with a different setting (college performance art) from those I’ve read. For me, there was also a little message. I’m paraphrasing what I took from it. People don’t want a challenge. After we finish school, we think we’re done with learning. We want everything to fit into what we know, but life is full of things we don’t know and experiences that can change us sometimes for the better. I liked this story and will continue the series.
