Series: Awkward Love Book #1
Stand Alone Title: yes
Author: Missy Johnson
Blurb: They call him the Anaconda, and I’m pretty sure it isn’t because he likes snakes.
Nick Jenson is my neighbor. My hot, oh-so-sexy, very-well-equipped neighbor that I’d spend hours watching from the safety of my bedroom window.
I saw lots of things I probably shouldn’t have. Sometimes I’d touch myself, imagining it were his hands roaming over my body instead of my own. I had just one mission—to find out if the rumors were true.
Then one day, he caught me watching him.
I was mortified. I was prepared to quit college, move to another country, and live the rest of my life saying, “Nick who?” But, apparently, life had other ideas.
Because Nick? Well, he isn’t just my neighbor … He’s also my father’s best friend. If I thought things were difficult before, they were about to get a whole lot more complicated.
Oh, and those rumors? Holy fuck, were they true …
Favorite quotes: “She said it was like squeezing into a pair of jeans that were two sizes too small. They were just about to give up when…” I jerk my head up and peek through the shelves, just in time to see her shred a piece of paper in half. I cringe and hold my legs together a little tighter.”
Thoughts: Ok, so this book could have went either way for me. I wasn’t familiar with the author, and from the blurb it sounded enticing on one hand, yet I could very easily see it going wrong and being one I didn’t really enjoy that much. Unfortunately, the immaturity level of the characters and just the kind of new adult style of writing didn’t work for me. And I swear if I had to read one more euphemism for this guy’s large cock I was going to scream….and no, not in a good way! Just not my cup of tea.
I don’t really believe – if the writing is good, the blurb is interesting – and it’s not anything to do with the author on why I don’t care for a book, in leaving a horrible review. While all reviews are subject to personal preference to some extent, if I totally took a chance on a book and I picked it up knowing I may not like it, then I’m just not going to slap a rating on there that brings down the books overall scores. Just not.
