Baya Brighton is looking forward to her first year at Whitney Briggs University, new friends, dorm life, and finally being close to her brother again. Love is the last thing on the list, but when Baya meets her brother’s roommate she begins to have thoughts and feelings that make even her blush.
Bryson Edwards has a secret he prefers buried in the past and long forgotten. He prefers loose girls, fast cars, and long nights working at the string of bars his family owns. When his roommate’s sister shows up on the scene, she’s far too innocent and sweet for him but he can’t shake Baya out of his mind and worse, it looks like she’s seeping into his heart as well.
Baya seems determined to show her brother she’s not a little kid and equally determined to use Bryson’s body to prove her point. It’s been made pretty clear that Baya is off limits to Bryson but their undeniable sparks explode into a whole lot more than just a few 3:AM KISSES.
1 star - I can't recommend
So I don't do this very often - give one star with no recommendation. I just couldn't find much to like about this one.
Baya is nineteen but if she didn't tell me, I'd have thought her brothers assessment of 13 was closer to the mark. She's innocent and naive and I could accept that but she thinks in ridiculous sexual innuendo. Her reference to her "girl parts" was frequent and colorful. She named her roommates boobs! She so did. Thing one and thing two, in case you were wondering.
She starts out holding her own against the bad boy, Bryson but before long she's throwing herself at him and asking for kisses. I just couldn't deal with it.
Speaking of dealing with things, Baya's brother Cole was really hard to deal with. He has a line of different girls in his bed on a daily if not hourly basis. I'm trying to figure out how these girls that line up for his bed have any self respect at all.
Then there's the roommate with the aforementioned named boobs. Baya "meets" her by walking in on one of her escapades. As a matter of fact, she only seems to see her in this vertical position with thing one and thing two flying. I just couldn't see it - or didn't want to see it.
Bryson. I wanted to like him. I think I may have, a little. He tries to make good choices even though he was just as bad as his roommate Cole before Baya showed up. I did like that he admitted his feeling for Baya and was very concerned for her.
The thing is that this is a fast read. I read it in an afternoon. I'm not sure if it was because I was hoping it would get better or if I was skimming after about 30%. I just can't recommend this one at all. I thought the blurb sounded good but this one is just not for me.
