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.
Teller Reddy is a sinfully good-looking, tattooed, bad boy. He is living the dream his father wants, just not his dream. Ready to walk away from it all, he meets Ella and everything changes. Her first day of college changes both of their lives.
Years of friendship and a tragic accident brings Teller and Ella’s relationship to a whole new level. After years of avoiding the truth of their relationship and suffering the toxic and explosive episodes, Teller and Ella come to realize that there has always been one answer in front of their faces. But one lie or omission of truth may just turn their entire world upside down.
Closer is a good read. I truly enjoy Teller and Ella as characters. They are both broken, yet fit together to make each other whole. The push and pull that they endure is enough to drive anyone crazy, yet it just adds to their whole dynamic. It’s always the crazies that draw you in. I cannot wait for the next book.
