Hi all, welcome back to another TBR book! I am going to lead with a warning that under 18s should probably NOT be reading this book! It’s not as dirty as books like “50 Shades of Grey” but not clean like “Twilight” either!
I really liked that this book starts off with a strong independent young woman (Dylan) who has her own business, is emotionally stable enough to do the wedding cake for her dick of an ex and even turn up to his wedding! But at the same time is insecure, shy and inexperienced. I love that this mix gives us a woman who can manage just fine by herself but loves having her friends around her. She knows when she wants a man and she goes after it and enjoys it for what it is. And I especially love that she has a really low number and still feels like she has the right to enjoy what she wants to enjoy. Society these days is so cruel to woman who know what they want so I LOVE this take on a young woman.
So I’ve set up the start of the book pretty well for you I think. Our main guy Reese on the other hand is commanding, charismatic, sexy etc. Yet is totally out of his depth with Dylan and is desperately trying to keep her happy so he can stay with her. So for a difference in the classical romance story Reese and Dylan are pursuing each other, failing to connect properly, connecting properly, something happens etc etc etc. And you know know when the next change is going to happen!
I literally started reading this book on a Sunday night in bed and finished it on the Tuesday night in bed because I wanted to know what happens next so badly! Good news for me (also bad news since it means I’ll have to pay for it) is that there’s another book in the series! So my little obsessed brain coz go mental over that when I buy it. And I think that’s two weeks in a row I’ve decided I’m going to buy the sequel and read it no matter the cost! Is it that I’ve picked two great books back to back to read or that I’m feeling more carefree with my credit card these days?
I am leaning more towards two great books who’s authors know how to write to hook you in and sucker you into spending more money! But I can’t blame them since that’s kinda what I love about books.
I don’t have much else to add (purely because I don’t want to make myself sound like a psycho!) for this book but it’s a great read and I think there’s a way for EVERYONE to connect to this series. Dylan’s personality is kinda all over the place and it’s left kinda unexplained. Which I’m hoping will be resolved in the next book, coz I’m super curious!
Anyway, I have already started the next read which will be “NSFW: An Office Romance” by Piper Lawson (and just realised it’s the second book in the series. Bummer!) so look forward to that one before like a month straight of book tours! And I feel like the book tours that are coming are going to be amazing!
See you next week! O also, I’m thinking I’ve changing up my layout or something but haven’t really made any decisions and they are a ways off of actually happening but I’m completely open to suggestions! If there’s anything you’d love to see in my posts either comment, DM on the socials or email me (contact into is on the contact page) with your suggestions 🙂
