Sometimes all a girl needs is a little practice...

It's been twelve months, three days, and eleven hours since accounting student Scarlett Logan made it past a second date. A pitcher of mojitos in hand, she employs her supreme graphing skills to narrow things down to one horrifying explanation. Kissing. Clearly someone needs to teach her how to kiss properly. Like, say, her best friend and roomie, Finn Mackenzie. He's safe, he's convenient, and yeah, maybe just a little gorgeous.

Finn knows exactly why Scarlett's boyfriends are disappearing quickly. Him. Not a single guy she's brought home is nearly good enough. And he'll be damned if he lets some loser give her "kissing lessons." No. He'll do the honors, thank you very much. The moment their lips touch, though, everything turns upside down. But Scarlett deserves the one thing Finn can't give her. And if he doesn't put an end to the sexy little shenanigans, he'll teach Scarlett the hardest lesson of all...heartbreak.

My thoughts and whatnot

My rating: ★★★★

You deserve happiness, too, Finn.
She deserves it more.

I've mentioned in one of my posts that I hate foes-turned-lovers cliche. This book, thankfully, was a friends-turned-lovers kind of book. This is definitely up my alley, I could work with this.

Anyway, the premise while not exactly cliche it wasn't very original. I personally think that this "kissing lesson" was absurd but there was something very appealing about this book. Maybe because I like friends-turned-lovers. It was a fun, sweet and romantic book and I so, so, so, love it.

The situations and characters were convincingly believable; there are a lot of scenes that are relate-able. I love the balance of romance and comical nonsense in this book. I love that this book was written in dual, alternating, point of views. That way, I got to know more the character.

Finn was sweet and responsible; after he lost his parents, his life had revolve around his two sisters, making sure that they grow up well after. Then came the Scarlett. His best friend, room mate and "sister". Scarlett was a force to be reckoned with. Growing up, Scarlett was always moving around, her being a daughter of wandering hippies. She craves constancy and he wants independence.
Put the two together and we have a very complex and dynamic couple.

Overall, it was a very fun and quick read.
Did I like the ending? Yes.
Is it a page turner? Yes. This has been a very quick read for me.
Would I re-read it again? Oh my gosh, yes.
