She’s the Girl Next Door
Maci Price isn’t really into relationships. Having four very protective older brothers has always made having a boyfriend very difficult, anyway. But her friend is set on finding her the perfect guy – and thinks the mysterious Connor Green is the perfect pick.
He’s Her Brother’s Best Friend
Connor Green is trying to find himself again. He loved then lost and it’s time for him to pick up the pieces. His brooding is making his friends crazy, but, Maci Price, who has grown up into a gorgeous and incredibly sexy woman, is about to break the spell.
They’re Made for Each Other
When Maci starts up old pranks to get Connor out of his slump, an all out war leads to a night that will break all their rules, and a relationship they must keep hidden. Together they’re electric. Apart they’re safe. And soon they’ll find they’re exactly what the other needs.
A fabulous, fun, and sexy, New Adult novella from New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams. If you loved Connor in From Ashes, this is the story for you.
I feel like I need to clarify something before really starting this review, the description of this one may say that it is a novella but really it reads like a book, it is at over 300 pages, a book.
Everything is fleshed out and well written and while part of a series, completely a story all it's own. In fact, confession time. I read this completely out of order and I don't regret it at all. In fact, I love Connor and Maci and am so glad I read their story when I did.
I love that this was done in dual point of views. I seriously am loving that in this genre because it adds so much depth to the characters, to their thoughts and feelings and just to the story in general.
Molly McAdams is a fantastic author, and while all her stories might not have a happily ever after ending, they are all fantastically written, hard to put down and have characters that you come to care about and feel something for, whether that be love or contempt, she knows how to bring about the emotions in a story, in a reader, and she does it well.
I adored both Maci and Connor and this story as a whole. It made me smile, laugh, sigh, get teary eyed and it made me fall in love with it.
I want more with the whole Price bunch and I am really looking forward to reading more about them all. Even though this was a long novella, I truly wasn't ready for it to be over.
