Fast and hot like an explosion of fireworks! Whew boy, this one got going fast and hard in this series of sultry encounters between two college students who had a thing for each other and finally did something about it.
Quickie reads are generally not my thing, but once in a while…
Yeah, this was that moment. There was just enough development so that I could buy into the story and the characters, but the author wisely left things in the right way for the ending. My first time with the author and I’m pretty sure that if I get in this mood again that I will check out her stuff.
Jaycee Hanson has been sitting behind the delectable Tyler Johnson in class for most of the semester. Her lusty thoughts should have scorched him by now, but she is pretty sure he barely knows she exists. He is her secret crush and she watches him from afar noting that he only goes around with black girls and doesn’t seem interested in a white girl.
But then one day in class, Tyler proves her very wrong. He not only acknowledges her tentative flirty advance, but he makes it clear that he is hot for some action right now. Jaycee has never been this bold, but she wants this so they end up together.
Tyler is never thought the pretty white girl would actually give him a chance. He has wanted Jaycee for quite some time and so he is alert to her signal that she is interested in him. Being with Jaycee is all that he imagined and he sees this as the start of something good until heated words by someone close to him send Jaycee running.
Two classmates secretly want each other and finally go for it. They deal with a moment of racial tension caused by someone else and have to decide if they are both serious about something more in this fast hot read. It jumps right in with minimal development, but for what it is, that was no surprise for me. I liked what I saw of the characters and their situation. I liked that the author didn’t try to do too much, but I did feel that this one ended abruptly. I knew where things were going, but still, it just stopped.
All in all, this one unapologetically is was it is- a fast, hot interracial New Adult read that I would recommend for those who are looking for that very thing.
My thanks to Net Galley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
