Blurb (from Goodreads):
Jessica Sweet thought going away to college would finally make her free of her parents’ constant judgments and insistence she play chastity club role model for their church events, but if anything, the freedom has made her realize she can’t go home and be a hypocrite anymore. Tired of dodging their questions, she stays at school over the summer and lands in an unexpected crash pad: Riley Mann’s house.
Sarcastic, cocky, and full of opinions, Riley is also sexy personified with tattoos and biceps earned from working as a roofer all day. Not the right guy for her even if Jessica was looking for a relationship, which she is definitely not. But Jessica knows that Riley hides the burden of having to raise his younger brothers behind that grin and as she helps him get his house in order for a custody hearing, they begin to fall hard for each other, and she is forced to question what she’s hiding herself.
Jessica has never had a problem getting naked with a guy, but when it comes to showing Riley how she truly feels inside, her fear of rejection may just ruin the best thing—the best guy—to ever happen to her…
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was an NA contemporary romance with a very slow build up.
Jessica was an okay character, and I understood why she didn’t want to go home to her parent’s house for the summer, even if I didn’t like the way she lied.
The storyline in this was about Jessica staying at a friend’s house for a week over the summer, and slowly falling in love with Riley (the owner of the house). The romance in this was extremely slow building though, and I did get a little inpatient.
The ending to this was okay and we did get a happy ending. I didn’t enjoy this as much as the previous book in the series though.
