My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4 I don't even know what I'm doing here STARS
“This is where I belong. Wherever you are. Always.”
I'm trapped in chick-flick hell or maybe heaven? Not sure. Either way...send help!
So, here is the thing. I just needed a little change of pace because the emotional head-trip of a book I'm reading right now was fucking up my good Easter mood and I thought chick flick, something light and fun and cheesy is exactly what I need.
Don't fall for it, it's a god damn trap. I'm already on the second book and I can't stop. It's really good in a awful kind of way...if you get my drift.
And yes, I went all out on the cheesiness with my collage. Just sharing the love.
“The boy I once wished never existed was now the man I wanted to spend every second with.”
Mia visits her best friend for the summer. On her way to town she has this super great idea...losing her virginity to a stranger. So, naturally she hits up a bar. What could possibly go wrong?
Well, turns out the stranger she hooks up with is her best friend's brother and the bane of her childhood. She hates him. Ben tormented her for being over weight and just a general nuisance in his mind.
After seeing him for he first time in nine years she has no idea the sex god is someone she would normally never even think of sleeping with.
Hilarity ensues when they meet as Ben and Mia for the first time!
“The girl I once couldn’t get far enough away from had become the woman I couldn’t get close enough to.”
If you ignore the fact that she decides to give her virginity to a stranger it actually turns into a nice read. Mia and Ben are really explosive together and once Sir Nolan enters the game things just get all kinds of cute and adorable.
Have I mentioned that Ben is a cop? Yeah, it's pretty hawt.
The writing is good, the characters are lovable and it's a feel good - don't think too much - summer read. Just as advertised. I enjoyed it.
I'm currently reading Luke and Tessa's story. See you on the other side. ;D
