    1. There are so many things wrong with this book. I try not to be mean or harsh in reviews if I can help it, but this book I can't even it just frustrates the crap out of me. 1. This book reads like an unedited first draft. And actually, it reads like the author's first book. You know, that first book that you write that you absolutely LOVE and is PERFECT and is your baby, etc. And then you put it up and read it a year later and realize that while the story isn't a bad idea, the writing is crap, an [...]


    2. So far, this is possibly the worst book I've ever read. The spelling, grammar, punctuation, over-use of terms and things, the immaturity, the the abundance of cussing; are all slowly killing my brain. And the characters are so insanely stupid. I feel no connection to them whatsoever. All I'm seeing from their narration is: "OMGhe's SO HOT!! Theirs anhe.een my legswhenever I see him!!!" or "I am SO FUCKED!! This is the TENTH TIME I've had a hard on today just by being near her! FUCK!". Literally. [...]


    3. Disclaimer: My thoughts on this book are my sole opinion and mine alone. Please be respectful and mindful of that. I cannot believe I actually finished this one, this doesn't even deserve to be rated, it was that bad. I'm afraid my ability to even function properly has been switched off, so excuse this poorly written, hastily thrown together review that I wrote as soon as I finished the book. This was experience, shall we say. An experience that I wish I kind of could get back. What turned me of [...]


    4. This will teach me not too look at my friends reviews before I purchase I book.Ok, let's start with the good stuff. The story was very sweet. Very much a love-at-first sight plot, which generally isn't my thing, but Ellie and Gunner are just cute enough to make it semi-ok. She has been verbally abused by her mom to the point that she doesn't think anyone will ever really want her, and Gunner is just the guy to prove to her that she's wrong. Their whole relationship is a very straight line - he w [...]


    5. OMG! NO! Fuck no! I will stop right now! Didn't finish at: 8%It all started good, normal, no problemo. And then from the second chapter I was slowly going madFirst, this is Ellie"Gunner let out a laugh that moved through my whole body like a warm blanket. What was happening to me??? I just stood there staring, I could not move. What was it about this guy that had my insides just melting? I mean I just saw my boyfriend screwing someone else and I was NEVER…let me repeat myself…I was NEVER goi [...]


    6. Oh man, this book was so bad. I can't even begin to describe how bad, I knew from the first page that it wasn't going to win any awards but I held out hope for the storyline. Even that was bad, I didn't connect with any of the characters, the awkward dialogue was just that awkward. No one talks like that, and the main character Ellie, I just wanted to slap her. Talk like a normal person! The grammatical errors were abundant, normally I can look past these if the story is good but I felt like bas [...]


    7. I rarely write a review, but I had to speak on this one and air my grievances:I WANTED to like this book-I really did. I loved the blurb about the book but that's where the love starts, chokes and dies.I have read books with horribly written characters but I think these characters take the cake, the frosting, the bowl, the utensils, even THE CASH to purchase the ingredients to make the damn cake!!!The characters were short sighted, immature, weak minded, insecure, over emotional, irrational, and [...]

    9. 4 and 1/2 SOLID STARS--- FUCKINGAWESOME STORYThe only reason I am not giving it 5 stars or really I would go so far as to say 6 stars--if it was not for the grammer errors Lots of those, but they got better throughout the book. Also, there was an exorbitant!!!!amounts!!!! of Explanation points!!! when none were necessary I'm telling you this up frot becasue honestly it bugged the shit out of me for the first few chapters I know may people are are complete anal about such things but I strongly fe [...]


    10. What demons drove me to finish this thing that I wouldn't even call a book? I have no idea, but I promise I will find out and hunt them down to make them pay for this damn torture. I hate to write my first review and make it negative, but this leaves me no other choice. All the way throughout the book I was sitting there likeYou all may ask "why" ? Well, my fellow readers let me tell you why.1) The characters inspire my inner serial killer and fuel the voices inside my head whispering to commit [...]


    11. I saw the blurb on this book and REALLY 'Wanted' to read it !!BUT then I saw it had a lot of negative/average reviews ???I decided I'd give it a go anyway ??Ok YES, there were quite a few grammatical errors.And YES.It could possibly have been a little shorter.BUT.BUT.BUT.Gunner 'Drew' Mathews !!!!! *HUGE, MASSIVE SIGH*Gunner has to be 'THE MOST PERFECT' book boyfriend EVER ???Is he based on a real person ??? AND WHERE CAN I FIND HIM ??????Gunner and Ellie were just adorable <3 xxxxOhThe first [...]


    12. I NEED TO READ THIS BOOK NOW. BECAUSE OF THIS GUY;Pictures copyright of FuriousFotogGARY 'MOTHERFREAKIN' HOT DAMN' TAYLOR was Kelly's INSPIRATION FOR GUNNER and LORD KNOWS I LOVE THE MAN MORE THAN ANYTHING. :)


    13. IDNFingis.Life.o.ort.Eight chapters and nothing is happening. It needs an impossible amount of editing. I did like the story in the blurb, but yeah. No.The word "fuck" is used 851 times.The word "shit" 344 times.I'm not going to rate it because in all honesty, I don't think rating something without finishing it is fair. But maybe it's for the best, maybe it's just not my kind of book, and it would have screwed up the overall rating of it. I really gave it a chance, though.


    14. 3.75-4 StarsThe WANTED castFound this on the Author's FB Page :)“I want to be the person who gives you all of your firsts. I want to experience them with you so I can see that beautiful smile of yours light up every time you do something new. I want to make all your dreams come true.” ~ Gunner OH. MY. GOD. **SWOON!!** I’m completely in love with Gunner. He totally made the story worth while. He’s one hot, sweet, sexy, tattooed Southern gentleman. Just fucking gorgeous! Oh yea, he definit [...]


    15. **Spoilers** & Be warned, this a complete rant.Okay, first off I'll just say Wanted got two stars from me just for Jeff and Ari alone. Only interesting story in the book. And that's sad to say, because they're not the main characters. Anyways, the story begins with Ellie at seven years old, listening to her drunk mother say that no guy will ever want her and she should be prepared to live a lonely life. And so, I felt alright this book has some potential. (Note: I bought the book due to a fr [...]


    16. I literally had to put this book down after 25 pages. The writing was absolutely terrible--there were spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes, and every other word was an expletive. It seems like a ten year old wrote this. It obviously never saw an editor. I rarely stop reading a book, especially after so few pages, but I honestly couldn't bear to continue. Don't waste your money on this!


    17. I really enjoyed this book!!i wasn't sure how I felt at first with the pov switching back and forth but then I started to look forward to them! This story had me happy, mad, furious, sad, happy again!! All in all I just fell in love with the characters and can't wait for the next book!!


    18. Simple and sweet, a story about first love. Not an original story line. Pretty standard high school/college love but enjoyable all the same. There were definitely parts that were filled with enough romance to keep the story going.The books follows the story of Ellie an american High school graduate who has been verbally abused by her alcoholic mum all her life. Ellie meets gunner, her brothers best friend a tattooed football player - his character is the hero of the book, attempting to show Elli [...]


    19. This was absolutely horrible!! I've only once before returned a book and now this is two. Save your time and money, I promise you the editing will drive crazy the story line is weak and the characters are in some serious need to be further developed. The positive side is it did start off with promise. I wonder if any of these other people who gave reviews really read it at all? I say to the author please get some beta readers that love what your books can be and let them help you and also invest [...]


    20. Man oh man. Where do I start? First off, this book needs to be edited, hardcore. Just tons of misspellings going on. Secondly, it's just too freakin' wordy. I liked the idea of the characters and Drew/Gunner was a sweet guy but everything just seemed to move too fast and be a little too far fetched. The dialogue didn't seem natual at all. Besides the swearing which was plentiful, it was sometimes painful/cringe inducing reading the conversations between the characters. Then you read this insanel [...]


    21. Extremely sorry to say I hated this book I never give up on a book no matter how horrible it is I still finish it, but I couldn't wait to drop this book I loved the story line girl falling in love with brothers best friend. Sadly this book was so disappointing The heroine elli is a weakling who cries at the drop of the hat and just because her mom has been abusing her nothing physical but through words she doesn't trust any guy and thinks all guys cheat then why the hell does she go near a guy c [...]


    22. Had to give up on this book1. I’m pretty sure it was written by a fourteen year old.2. No plot. No story. No characters. No one is compelling to read about, just four flat, one dimension characters and a few interchangeable ancillary friends. 3. Too vs. to. You’re vs. your. Their vs. there. Not to mention endless, endless typos. Learn the basics of the English language before trying to write a book using it. If learning the basics isn't an option, get a proofreader or editor.4. I have no pro [...]


    23. SPOILLLEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRSSSSSSSSSSSS THIS BOOK SERIOUSLY MADE ME WANT TO PUKE, SCREAM, YELL IN FRUSTRATION, GIGGLE LIKE A LITTLE GIRL AND GRIN LIKE CRAZY. It has seriously and officially given me a freaking personality disorder. -----------------------------------This book is pretty much the corniest, most intense I thing have ever read. The amount of drama these four characters get into in the span of one whole book is RIDICULOUS. Seriously imagine every single contemporary new adult/ young adu [...]


    24. This book was horriblel supposed friends slept with one another whilst in college and cheat and then hooking up with each other and living happily ever after?Yeah a lot of rubbish!


    25. I loved this book. I can't wait until the next book comes out!I know from the other reviews that this is a hit-or-miss book. Part of the reason that many people don't like it is that they don't get connected to the characters. For me that was an easy thing. The way Ellie feels about Gunner is something I can relate to. The feelings of insecurity and especially the feeling of waiting for the floor to drop. But the way Gunner treats her is breathtaking. It's the way every girl dreams to be treated [...]


    26. I really enjoyed Wanted the characters are great and I love the plot also the joint POV's between Ellie and Gunner. But I must say if Ellie had said she had "push her legs together to stop the ache" anymore I was about to scream. I mean sort it out yourself or ask Gunner!!!!! Also I want a 2nd book as I have to know how all goes between Jefferson and Ari. Also I made a Fan made Pinterest board pinterest/yaindieprincess/


    27. I was pretty sure my eyes were going to get stuck in the top of my head, from all the eye rolling I was doing while reading this book. I'm completely confused as to how this book managed to rake in a 4 star rating I felt like 1 star was being generous. This was honestly the WORST book I have ever read, and the first time I have considered asking for my money back from Barnes and Noble. The only reason I finished this book was because of my crazy compulsion to finish each book I read, no matter h [...]


    28. Ellis n drew. that guy is tooooooo perfect. I like my characters to read with shades of gray (n I don't mean like fifty of them ;)) but atleast some variation that makes them more real more believable. its a college mushy romance and I get all the reason why its the way it is but I just couldn't get over the repetitive factor of some portions in the book. at one point I just felt pathetic for drew.he's always literally begging ellie for her to understand him or accept his love for her.I get that [...]


    29. Wow best book boyfriend ever!!!! Everybody needs and wants a Gunner Mathews! Yes this book is full of writing errors but the story the author tells is an absolute beautiful story, one that i can't wait to follow!!!Thank you Kelly Elliot, you warmed my heart with this story!!! LOVED!!!
