Description from Publisher:
A new adult romance from Entangled's Embrace imprint...

Sometimes all a girl needs is a little practice...

It's been twelve months, three days, and eleven hours since accounting student Scarlett Logan made it past a second date. A pitcher of mojitos in hand, she employs her supreme graphing skills to narrow things down to one horrifying explanation. Kissing. Clearly someone needs to teach her how to kiss properly. Like, say, her best friend and roomie, Finn Mackenzie. He's safe, he's convenient, and yeah, maybe just a little gorgeous.

Finn knows exactly why Scarlett's boyfriends are disappearing quickly. Him. Not a single guy she's brought home is nearly good enough. And he'll be damned if he lets some loser give her "kissing lessons." No. He'll do the honors, thank you very much. The moment their lips touch, though, everything turns upside down. But Scarlett deserves the one thing Finn can't give her. And if he doesn't put an end to the sexy little shenanigans, he'll teach Scarlett the hardest lesson of all...heartbreak.

My Rating:
Heat Rating:

Loved loved loved this!!

These two together were nothing short of amazing. Their chemistry and the depth of their emotional intimacy was sublime, everything you could begin to hope for in a best-friends-to-lovers story.

I adored Finn from the get-go, and he just got more and more wonderful and complex. The way he stepped up and took responsibility was admirable, and the way he CARED so much was so sweet.

Scarlett was fun and not without her own charm. I appreciated her character arc in this the most, I think, as she made some rather significant realizations about her feelings, deaires, and fears. I also loved how giving she was, and how she was Finn's rock when he needed support.

All of the supporting characters really brought this to another level. Amelia and Billie, Harvey, Scarlett's parents, and even Rakesh and Cathy were well-developed and very whole characters without stealing the focus away from the stars.

The heat in this was sexy and irresistible, burning up the pages even when it was just a look shared or a memory. That first kiss was one for the record books, sexy and combustible.

My Source: I received a digital ARC from the publisher to voluntarily review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is unbiased and my 100% own.
