First by M.A. Grant
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received this free eARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
I really liked this! I loved how the author had two short stories about 4 characters, rather than one story interweaving the two story lines. I was hoping that it wouldn't be an overload of information to keep track of, but by separating them I think made the stories even better.
Jake and Maya's story was cute. They had the whole hate relationship down to a pat, but everyone could tell that their hatred was all of their lust pent up into the wrong emotion. This novel started off with a bang when Maya woke up in bed with a very naked Jake, which definitely set the tone of the novel for the reader. I think they were denying it too much and using too many excuses, but it ended well.
But I really, really liked Cat and Dallas/Dally's story. Poor Dallas really tried to keep his hands off of Cat, but she wasn't having any of that nonsense. And I laughed so hard when they went into the adult shop together! Gah! Cat's vision of her first time was ridiculous and something only found in dreams, but she is a dreamer so that makes sense. The attraction between these two were flying out of the pages and I loved every minute of it.
I think New Adult readers will devour this novel/novellas and will be left wanting more!
