I honestly don’t know what I was expecting from this one. I knew I was going to love it and I knew I was going to laugh out loud but I think I kinda thought it was going to be something along the lines of forbidden brother’s best friend and be a little new adult angsty with humour or see I still don’t even know.

Obviously with the combination of Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy it’s going to be awesome so I guess it didn’t really matter what I thought I was going to get so much as the fact that it was a complete no brainer that I was going to love it. So here I was on a stormy, overcast summer day with a little free time and the kids all distracted when I figured I could sneak off and dive in. Luckily for me the stars aligned and I was completely forgotten by the boys. Not that it would have mattered as since I picked it up I couldn’t have put it down short of major blood loss or dismemberment.

Jessica was such a relatable character, I felt like we could have been besties from the start. She didn’t have all the answers and she was maybe lacking in a little self-esteem but she wasn’t whiny or insecure about it she just got on with things and lived her life. I really liked her and I loved her family. I had no idea this was a spin-off of sorts from Him so I now have to add that to the mountain and read it ASAP.

Blake had my attention from the beginning but there were a few things I wasn’t sure about but then I got over them pretty quickly. Without giving anything away I will just say that I am a huge fan of alphas who upon seeing the girl go balls to the wall to claim her and don’t think about another woman from the first meeting. And that wasn’t the case here. There was a period of time between their one night stand and them meeting up again where Blake wasn’t celibate but it was pretty much a non-issue and was glossed over and wasn’t part of the story. Just after they first reunited I was worried he might continue with the man whore ways. Thankfully it wasn’t like that at all and I didn’t think about it for more than a second but I know it might be an issue for some readers.

“At any rate, I’ve got this boyfriend thing down. Turns out it’s like riding a bike. But the bike is a hot blonde with big brown eyes and perfect tits. And I’m a really good rider.”

These two together had such great chemistry and their dialogue was laugh out loud funny and made me feel a real connection to them as a couple. I can’t wait for the next installment in the series but in the mean time I am off to one click Him.
