Closer (Closer #1) by Mary Elizabeth

Gabriella Mason is damaged.

Teller Reddy is wrecked.

Misery loves company, and that’s exactly what Ella gets the afternoon her path crosses with Teller’s: the misunderstood premed student who instantly becomes her lifeline when she moves to Los Angeles, an attempt at escaping her heartbreaking past.

In the beginning, Lonely and Defensive complete each other. But in the end, their relationship is like broken glass—cutthroat and jagged.

Calling it off before they kill each other, Ella and Teller decide to “just be friends” despite the intensity that binds them together. It’s a delicate foundation rocked by tragedy, effectively destroying the illusion they’ve so carefully built.

Unable to deny what’s between them any longer, this is what happens when wrecked and damaged collide and close is still not close enough.

3.75 out of 5 stars

Gabriella is use to everyone leaving her. She only has her big brother in her life. Her constant. When Teller enters her life, she finds someone that she connects with. Unfortunately, their relationship is better left in the friendship zone.

Teller is damaged. He holds Gabriella in his heart for years, but his fears hold him back. Throughout the years, he also makes mistakes that stops their relationship from moving to another level.

Their relationship has a lot of ups and downs. And some very big secrets.

I really enjoyed this book. Two damaged people with an intense attraction to each other. Both Gabriella and Teller have emotions that are extreme. The highs are wonderful, but the lows feel like hell. I can't wait for book 2.
