The characters of this book made for a highly entertaining few hours of reading! Logan and Banner meet over a text and the rest is kind of history.
Banner is an awesome character! Fun, honest, unapologetic are three words that come to mind when I think about her. She’s a self-confessed good-time girl and doesn’t have any qualms with letting people know that. She starts something of a friendship with Logan, even texting him when out on dates questioning whether ‘a real man would do/say/drink XYZ’ it was fun. Did I mention that Banner is smart? Like, super smart. She’s not all ditz and zero substance. Quite the opposite, actually. And she meets her match in Logan.
I don’t know what to say about Logan but he’s definitely book boyfriend material! He’s a sexy, dirty alpha with the proverbial heart of gold. He’s a mechanic in a small town and trying to establish a good reputation for himself and his business. He’s also determined to show Banner what it’s like to be with a real good man and some of the things he said had me in swoonville – very sweet! Loved him! When circumstances push Banner to move (albeit temporarily) to the same town as Logan, it’s when the fun and games really start.
I reaaaaally loved this book. It was short enough to read within an hour or two and engaging enough that I simple refused to put it down. The characters are just completely captivating. I fell in love with Banner within the first few pages and in lust with Logan shortly thereafter. The story wasn’t one that’s done to death: it was fresh and exciting, lovely and romantic, and sexy AF. Just fantastic.
This book is part of a duet, so obviously it ends of a cliffhanger but it’s only a very minor one that I could absolutely deal with (I normally avoid cliffys like the plague) and no doubt you can too. Thankfully we don’t have a huge wait for book two!
I’ve read a few books from this author but not for a while and I’d forgotten how riveting her writing is. Of course, I’m now getting ready to go back and read the ones I’ve missed!
