SynopsisNothing good came from listening to my heart. It was careless and irrational and became way too invested when I read a romance novel. So I put her under lock and key. I only had a few rules, and I always stuck with them. 1. Never get attached. 2. Always run before the feels become contagious. 3. No matter what, under no circumstances, never fall in love. He was a playboy who ran by the same set of rules. What we had together was fun, it was hot, and it was temporary. Until he screwed everything up. We were never meant to be each other's happily ever after, but the harder I tried to push him away, the further I fell.
Rating: 4-ish out of 5 stars
Here is my biggest problem with this book. Staci, a woman who has several men for booty calls doesn't want Mason because he is a manwhore. Isn't she a hypocrite? For me she is. She wanted to send a nude photo of hers to one of the men on her phone and accidentally chose Mason's number. So why should Mason's past count while hers didn't?
The book had some good and some bad parts. I shall begin with the bag because I already mentioned my biggest problem. For me, the characters didn't develop much and were practically the same as the first time we met them. Staci confronted her past though and that wasn't enough for me. It just felt rushed. I wanted to see her work things out in more time than a chapter. I just felt like her past had to be added to create some friction. Her arc could have been very emotional, but instead, it held as much importance as a trip to the grocery store.
On the good side of things, I liked the rest of the book. The story flew easily and the main characters had passion in their relationship, most of which came from Mason. It was a light book despite the title and the cover. I swear every time I see this and the first book in the series, I keep thinking that I am going to read a dark romance. And they are not which isn't a bad thing. I would recommend the book with some hesitation.
