So my book boyfriend this week?

Jonathon Kadisch

Kylie Warner prides herself on being optimistic, but after finding her best friend in bed with her boyfriend and flunking chemistry, her upbeat attitude has taken a dive. Even an impromptu hook-up with her sexy new chemistry tutor only brightens her mood slightly. After all, it's not like she'll ever see the tattooed scholar again…

While he's a whiz at complex equations, Jonathon Kadisch has trouble when it comes to figuring out women. So when Kylie tells him that she's pregnant after their night of passion, he's at a complete loss. He's prepared to be a good father—unlike his own deadbeat dad—but he's less prepared to fall for the genuine and alluring blonde bearing his child.

With emotions running high, Kylie wonders if Jonathon's devotion is out of growing love or looming obligation. And when heartbreak threatens to tear them apart, Jonathon will have to fight for the only girl who's ever made him feel whole…


The boy gets it...

"My boyfriend cheated on me with my bast friend." "What?" He sounded horrified.  "Are you f*cking kidding me?"  It gave me a sense of relief that his reaction was so strong.  "That's what I thought.  I mean, it's like the worst thing ever." "I hope he is your ex-boyfriend." (Kindle location 211)

Besides listening, he also pays attention...

He was leaning against the wall, hands resting on his knees, and his expression was hooded.  "I can tell you that you wear two necklaces--one is a cross, one is a heart with a ruby in the center.  You have on a braided bracelet and if I had to guess, you are a 34C bra size.  You have a tiny mole on your neck, you're really fond of lip gloss, you always twirl your hair with your left hand, never your right, and you are a natural blond." (Kindle location 262)

He can kiss...

It was a delicious kiss, the kind that started slow and tentative then grew deeper and deeper until I needed to pull back and snag a breath.  For a heartbeat, I stared at him, my mouth hovering over his, the light reflecting off his glasses so I couldn't read what was in his eyes, but he didn't give me enough time to speak or think any further.  He put his hand on the back of my head and erased the space between us, and for some reason it mattered to me that he didn't pull me to him, he came to me. (Kindle location 288)

He can give a compliment...

"You are honestly the hottest thing I've ever seen.  I want to lick every single inch of you." (Kindle location 358)

Sweet...the boy is SWEET...

"We don't have to have sex," he said.  "I know you don't feel good.  I just want to touch you, hold you." (Kindle location 1208)

And a few sexy fantasy's going...

"Actually, I want in nothing but that shirt and cowboy boots, right up against your door."  I sucked in my breath. "Oh." 


The feeling that I have when I turn the last page of a book is always telling.  If I've been counting the pages and just waiting for it to be over, then I'm not satisfied.  If I wish there were more pages and I can't believe I just sat for like three hours without even noticing the time, then I am satisfied.  This book, it's the satisfying kind. 

In a bit of a reading slump, every book I picked up lately got put back down.  Then I picked up Shatter.  I was half way through it before I came up for air.  I looked around and thought, dang...I have to go to bed.  But I finished it off the next night.  

I love these characters.  Jonathon is a nerd.  He's scary smart but he also sports hipster glasses, an arm full of tats and some sexy muscles.  A total cutie.  Not sure what the sexy Kylie sees in him, he's falling despite the logic of the matter.

Kylie has feeling for Jonathon too but can she ever be enough for him with her average intellect.  Throw in her crushed heart that her ex stomped on and the little bun that accidentally ends up in her oven and she's a confused girl.

Here's the important part...I guessed some of the story but I wasn't sure how she was going to resolve all the very real issues between these two.  A twist I didn't see coming was a catalyst for some serious soul searching and a resolution that felt genuine. 

I have loved each book a little more as this series has progressed.  Erin McCarthy threads real characters with some sexy scenes and creates such satisfying stories.  

If you've read the rest, then don't miss this one.  If you have read this series, you should.  It's some of the best New Adult out there.
