***Stephenee – #NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***
This was a novella, however, it packed the punch of a full length novel.  The author did an amazing job getting the readers to become invested in the characters right from the very start of the story.  Poor Red, imagine the horror of hearing a couple having sex, in the church right before your wedding – then imagine the man is your fiancé….yep, it was Jake, Red’s fiancé.  How could the reader not be hooked right then and there?!?!

The author had the reader flipping through the pages at a break neck speed trying to see what was going to happen next!  The plot was fun, a bit unpredictable and had the reader laughing out loud on several occasions.  I may (or may not) have taken on Mary Lou’s accent and spoken some of her lines out loud while reading this story….some things that she said were just too funny to not try to say out loud! She is the kind of best friend that I WANT!  No non-sense, there in a pinch, lovable and fun – where can I get my very own Mary Lou?!?

The reader also falls a bit in love with Mason and Monroe – I mean who doesn’t want a hot man with  big muscles?!? It also didn’t hurt that Mason and Red have a bit of history between them that I am looking forward to learning more about!  Monroe may have met his match with Mary Lou – that is also another angle I can’t wait to get a bit more info. on.  Overall this is a great read for anyone!

The author had a few predictable plot lines, but there were also a few that the reader never saw coming. I think that this is a fun, no brainer for any reader!  It is easily read in an afternoon, while floating in the pool, or sitting on the beach – just beware that you will laugh out loud and that you will smile and look a bit odd to someone if they catch you, but it is a fun novella and I am looking forward to the next one!
