My rating: 3.5 Stars
Enjoyed this sweet & steamy read!
This installment is Logan’s spinoff and can very well be read as a standalone. I didn’t enjoy this one as much as I did The Deal because I found that some of the dialogue and parts of plot felt a bit forced. I’m pretty certain I’m in the minority, however, because most readers seem to be enjoying this one more. That said, there were things I absolutely LOVED about this read, and that’s what I’m gonna focus on.
Logan is secretly hung up on his best friend’s girl. Yeah, not cool, and he knows it. That’s why he goes out of his way to get her out of his system by committing serial-hookups with random girls — a tactic that seems to help, but only for the moment. Until a surprising hookup with Grace changes his world…
Grace is a sweet girl who’s still very much attached to her “V-Card”. She’s anxious to have the label removed, and when she meets Logan, she very nearly almost does … until she learns of his reasons and realizes the MISTAKE she almost made.
I loved the the cat-and-mouse chase between these two, and their chemistry was sexy and intense. There were plenty of college party scenes, fighting off feelings, stolen kisses, and make-the-other-jealous type of moments that worked surprisingly well without growing redundant.
There’re also some heavy friendship and family issues tackled in this story that didn’t entirely convince me, but were touching nonetheless. They also worked well in adding more depth and variety to the plot.
If you’re a fan of The Deal, or just looking for a fun and steamy NA escape set in college, I have no doubt you’ll enjoy this read!
