Cutler Ryder was everything I wasn't.
He was the hockey star. I was an outcast.
He was best friends with my stepbrother, that same stepbrother who hated me.
His two parents loved him. My mom was a junkie. My dad barely knew me.
I got my life together.
Cut went onto NHL stardom.
Then there was a text.
I was drinking.
There was a party.
Cut was there...
I loved Cutler Ryder since the first moment I saw him.
The only problem? He never knew I existed.
The Not-Outcast and all-new emotional slow burn romance from New York Times bestselling author Tijan is available now!
I absolutely loved reading The Not-Outcast by Tijan. I completely devoured it. Cheyenne and Cut are amazing characters. Cheyenne broke my heart. She was so misunderstood and lost when she was young. No one seemed to put her needs first. But she was strong and determined and got the help she needed on her own. She is definitely one my top favorite female characters ever. She struggled, but she had some great friends who were there for her no matter what. Cut was sexy, charming and protective. He never saw Cheyenne coming, but once she was in his life, he was all in. I loved that about him.
There were also some great secondary characters I loved. The Tomcats were something else and they had me laughing out loud. And Hunter and Cheyenne relationship’s was wonderful. This story had great characters and a captivating story. And I must say, Tijan’s depiction of Cheyenne was completely spot on. Understanding and describing someone who suffers with mental disorders is hard, but this author did an amazing job at it. The Not-Outcast by Tijan is one of my top 2020 reads and cannot wait to read it again. It was emotional, angsty, and steamy. A must-read for sure!

“Stars. You made me meet them.”
I was still seeing them. His eyes. So smoldering.
He continued to stare at me, as if seeing me for the first time.
Maybe he was regretting this? Was my one-night stand a one-night finger bang instead?
I tried to stem the disappointment, but… Okay.
A girl had coping mechanisms. I could pull mine up, if I needed to. I was hoping I didn’t need to. I didn’t know how I’d handle that either. Then he must’ve made his decision.
He readjusted his hold on me, standing back from the door and his mouth twitched. “One rule.”
I was about to see stars again.
“Don’t call me dude again.”
