Synopsis

How do you define the word used? Some of the synonyms often associated with the word used are accustomed to or habituated. If acting as an adjective, it could mean, not new or second hand. You could be speaking of a used car, used clothing, used furniture, used tissues or maybe even used people. 
That’s how I was feeling. I had become accustomed to being used and had given up on finding real love. I had reached a point in my life that I wasn’t even sure there was such a thing as unconditional love except for that of a love between a parent and their child. 
I had tried it all; bars, blind dates and online dating sites. The only thing I ever found in a bar was a one night stand. Friends fixed me up with their friends but it never went further than three dates. Online dating sites were full of desperate people and desperation was not a foundation for a long term relationship. 
Quite frankly, I had gotten tired of feeling used, so I convinced myself there was no such thing as love… 
… And then I met him.

***Stephenee – #NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***
This is the first book that I have read by Author Dina Redmon, but it won’t be the last.  I enjoyed the story of Amia, Chace, Jo and Connor and the everyday trials that life brings. They are the kind of characters that will stay with you long after you close the book, which means that they are the kinds that you can relate to, understand, empathize with and enjoy as friends.  The author does a great job building up the characters, their lives, emotions and even their everyday casual banter.  I felt like I was a part of their lives and at times could envision picking up the phone to call them and say “What are you thinking?!?!?!”  The characters are one of the most important parts of an amazing book and the author captured that with no problems.

The part that didn’t live up to my expectations at this point was the plot.  The story line was great, but there were some things that either left the reader hanging or left the reader wondering why that part was even there.  This is what made the book a 4 star read for me, instead of a 5.  There were parts of the story that as I was reading I wondered what the point of including it was, and then there were parts of the story where I wish there were more details or build up to it.  I enjoyed the banter between Chace and Amia at the bar and her home, and enjoyed their dates, however, all of the sudden we meet Conner and the next thing I know he is being adopted, but there was no build up to meet him, or any mention, he was just theirs.  I was also left wondering what happened to Amia’s job, one day she works non-stop and then work isn’t mentioned in the book again, so it was just the little things that made me want to know more or to have a little more understanding of the sudden changes.  Don’t get me wrong, it was a great read and I will be reading more of her books in the future, it was just the little things that made my OCD stand up and take notice.

I do recommend adding this book to your TBR list, the quicker, the better, and know that once you start reading you will be sucked in and won’t want to stop.  I read this book in a few short days and it was a quick, fun, easy read that is enjoyable, interesting and fun!  I am looking forward to the next book and can’t wait to see what happens next!!
