and a never ending reserve of insults for me- her brother’s best friend John Brandt
April 3, 2018
She is the sassy-mouthed Tiny Dancer. Prima ballerina with a beauty, brains, and a never ending reserve of insults for me- her brother’s best friend John Brandt, known to her as Jonny B. Nerdballs. I am no good at social interactions, usually too forward and direct. Also, I spent way too long building my empire- a tech start up and a name for myself. I was always coming back for her, though… Olivia was always the only one for me, ever since I saw her dance in a recital when she was far too young for me. I have taken care of myself. I think I am finally worthy of her… not all I have to do is convince her and not get killed by my best friend.
I don’t often write reviews on the romance novels I read unless they are really, really good. I am super picky. I want it all- the meet cute, good character development, chemistry, good story line and, God help me, more story line than sex. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a prude and will read books that are more erotic in nature…. but I want to feel for the characters and to like them as people. This book brought it all. I was half in love with John from the word “go”. He is determined, loyal, loving…. and awkward as all hell. There were times where the whole “workaholic” thing was played a bit much, but I feel like it stayed in line with his character. Olivia was a great character too, sassy and strong willed, loyal and loving. Watching the two interact was brilliant. For me, it was a four star book.
On the adult content scale, I would give it an eight. The sex scenes are pretty explicit and there’s some language.
