I grab her exploring finger just as it reaches my happy trail—a trail that if I let her wander down further will lead us to do things we can’t take back. Things like three-word phrases being confessed that would end me if I was rejected. Things like selfishly wanting to own her body and doing things to her that would make my fantasies blush. And things like making her promises too soon that won’t do either of us any good. She makes me want a future that’s not possible, and one I don’t deserve.
Listening to my ego got me into this situation. Will listening to my heart get me out?
My ReviewThere were definitely some good things going on in this book. It's a sexy, fun read! The setting was great! I loved the beach and the sandbar party. Scott's writing was quirky and fun to read. I loved the Duel POV! The sex scenes were butterfly inducing and super steamy!
My problem with this book started with the first chapter. Evan and Mallory meet at the airport when he's shipping of some summer fling, while winking at her over the girl's shoulder.
Mallory then admonishes him over dinner. He reveals that he's a manwhore and it was love(sex) at first sight after that?! I just can't put myself in her shoes. Yes he's hot, but really? Other than that, there was a back and forth of insecurity and denial, that resulted in the couple breaking up every other day.
The ending left me unsatisfied too, it's not really cliffy but I didn't really feel that there was a resolution to their story. Overall, I liked this book and would read the next in this series. I am interested in where Evan and Mallory end up!
