Blurb:

It’s not every day you wake up to a stranger getting into your bed.
Only, he isn’t a stranger at all, he’s my best friend’s hot older brother…and apparently my new roommate.
Having him in my space, driving me crazy, isn’t a problem at all. Nope.
All I need to do is keep control of the situation…
But that’s easier said than done.

Shawn Lassiter is the kind of distraction I don’t need.
First he accidentally gets into my bed, half-naked, the night before my first day at my new job.
Hello, muscles and tattoos!
Then he’s there, in nothing but a towel, making me coffee in the morning.
It’s more than any girl can resist. Right?
But Shawn is off-limits, even if his eyes are saying differently.

Years ago, back when I still had my crush, he destroyed friendships with his reckless playboy antics.
There’s no way I’m touching those perfectly formed abs now. I don’t care how nice and responsible he’s acting.
I don’t want a boyfriend anyway. That’s what my trusty vibrator is for.
I’m the smart girl—the glasses-wearing, book-reading workaholic. I can totally do this.
After all, it’s only for two and a half months.
I’ll be on my best behavior…even if Shawn isn’t.

 

Povzetek iz zadnje strani:

Ne zbudiš se vsak dan z neznancem v svoji postelji.

Toda on ni neznanec, ampak starejši brat moje najboljše prijateljice… in očitno tudi moj novi sostanovalec.

To, da zaseda moj prostor sploh ni problem.

Vse, kar potrebujem, je nadzor nad celotno situacijo… toda to je lažje reči kot storiti.
Shawn Lassiter je motnja, ki je ne potrebujem.

Najprej po nesreči pristane v moji postelji, na pol gol, noč pred začetkom moje nove službe.

Pozdravljene mišice in tatuji!

Potem mi kuha kavo oblečen le v brisačo okoli pasu.

To je več kot si dekle lahko privošči, kajne?

Vendar Shawn je prepovedan, čeprav njegove oči pravijo drugače.

Leta nazaj, ko sem bila zatreskana vanj, je uničil prijateljstva z njegovo lahkomiselnostjo.

Ni šans, da se dotikam teh perfektno izklesanih mišic sedaj. Pa naj bo še tako prijazen in odgovoren.

Sploh pa si ne želim fanta, za to imam vibrator.

Sem pametna punca – taka, ki nosi očala, bralka in deloholičarka. Zmorem to, saj je konec koncev le za dva meseca in pol.

Obnašala se bom primerno… čeprav se Shawn ne bo.

 

My thoughts:

The first thing that made me add this book to my TBR was the blurb, the second was the teaser, which was really hilarious.

The book itself was very easy to read, the chemistry was there since the beginning but it wasn’t one of those insta-love romances. Of course, once they got together the usual drama began – ”We can’t be together, you’re my best friend’s brother” and ”She won’t approve of us”. Spoiler alert: She didn’t.

I kind of hated Talia (Shawn’s sister) because when she found out because she was just so selfish. We’re talking ”How could you do that to me” and ”I thought you knew better”, she made Jessie looked so guilty even though she didn’t do nothing wrong. At least at the end, she admitted her mistake so Shawn and Jessie could be together.

4 stars.

Moje misli:

Prva stvar zaradi katere sem dodala to knjigo na svoj seznam ”moram prebrati”, je bil povzetek, drugi je bil izsek iz knjige, ki ga je avtorica prilepila v eno izmed FB skupin (vsaj zdi se mi, da sem ga tam zasledila) in ta je bil resnično smešen.

Knjiga sama je lahkotna, strani se praktično same obračajo in kemija med junakoma je prisotna že od samega začetka ampak zgodba sama ni ena tistih ”insta romanc”. Seveda, ko sta glavna junaka končno skupaj, se začne tista običajna drama – ”Ne smeva biti skupaj, saj si brat moje najboljše prijateljice” in ”Ona se ne bi strinjala z najinim razmerjem”. Spoiler: Res se ni.

Malce sem zasovražila Talio (Shawnovo sestro), ker ko je izvedela, je bila sebična. Govorim o ”kako si mi lahko to naredila” in ”mislila sem, da si pametnejša”, Jessie se je zaradi nje počutila krivo, čeprav ni naredila ničesar narobe. No, se je pa vsaj opravičila na koncu zgodbe tako da sta lahko pristala skupaj.

4 zvezdice.
