Review: Cherry Bomb by Carmel Rhodes

My heart doesn’t beat, it ticks.

It’s been that way since I was sixteen years old and I caught my sister in bed with my boyfriend.

I gave my heart to a boy who didn’t deserve it, then spent the next few years indulging in hard drugs and even harder sex.

Life is easier when you don’t get attached. 𝐂𝐚𝐬𝐮𝐚𝐥. 𝐍𝐨 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐢𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬. That’s the rule. At least it was before he came along.

Cash Davidson is the tattooed prince who walked into the restaurant where I work and turned my life upside down.

He is everything I never knew I needed. There’s just one problem


He’s my best friend’s dad.

Review by Jen Skewes

This is the first book that I have read from this author and I cannot wait to read more.  Cherry Bomb was exactly the book that I love to read. A taboo romance between two people who whose age difference is one that many would frown up, but that’s not all, they find that they are connected in a way that screams off limits.  

Cherry is a nineteen-year old who is trying to move on from her past. The one that broke her heart. She is beautiful but has a hard time seeing herself that way.  She is smart and sassy, but also self-destructive.  With her best friend by herself she is living her life the way that makes her happy.  Not looking for love or a relationship, concentrating on school.  Until she meets a hot older British man at the restaurant where she works at.  He is simply irresistible, with his tattoos and accent.  She expects nothing more than a one-night stand with Cash, but once she spends one night with him, she knows that one night will not be enough.

Cash is single, has one failed relationship and a daughter that he is finally be able to meet and try to connect with.  He quits his job and moves to a new town in hopes of forming a relationship with his daughter.  He’s smart, hot, and has had his fair share of woman.  When he meets Cherry there is something about this young girl that has caught his eye. After one night he knows that he wants more.  When he’s not with her, he can’t stop thinking about her, and when he is with her, he can’t keep his hands off of her.  Everything seems to be going great until he finds out that Cherry is not only his daughter’s roommate, but best friend.  Cherry and Cash know that they cannot be together, but they just cannot seem to stay away. Will the risk of losing a best friend and a daughter that you just met be worth it?

I loved this book!!!  I loved the relationship between Cash and Cherry. She may be only nineteen, but she is not some naïve girl who is smitten with an older man.  She knows that what they have has an expiration date.  She believes it in her heart, regardless of how she feels about him.  What I loved is she pushes him away and he pulls her back in.  I love that in some way they can both let their guard down with each other.  It did not matter that there was an age difference or that she is best friends with Cash’s daughter.  Everything about the two of them just felt so right.  

Cherry Bomb is hot and sexy with just the right amount of drama and angst.  I devoured this book.  It wasn’t just Cherry ad Cash that I loved.  The side characters were all fantastic.  Whether it was Logan and his angry bitter attitude, or Arden and her amazing friendship with Cherry.  This book was written so well, the scenes were hot, the chemistry between the two of them was intense.  I did not want this book to end!!  I cannot wait for the next one!!
