During Friday Fling , I share with you a "just for fun" romance book or novella that I read and really enjoyed. It will generally be a "mini review" instead of a full review and I'll stray from my YA focus into the realm of new adult/adult romance (which, in case you're curious, is my not-so-guilty pleasure). These are books that I think are fun, quick (sexy) reads that are definitely worth checking out!
Release Date: January 2014
Dora needs somewhere new to live and fast. While living with her now married best friends seemed like a good idea and totally doable, their sex life has taken off and Dora is finding it a little hard to concentrate on her own life--not to mention hearing all the good sex is making her wish for some of her own! A serendipitous roommate posting at the grocery store and three pushy models later, Dora is moving in with three drool-worthy men and she may have truly opened her own Pandora's box. Attraction ensues, as one might suspect with three hottie roommates, but things are not necessarily quite as Dora is perceiving them
Ms. Pandora...well...she wasn't my favorite character ever in a new adult romance. She's clearly a beautiful young woman who can't fathom that she is, even with multiple handsome young men and her best friend drilling it into her head frequently. While this was a fun and quick read, I felt like, for me, the character connections fell a little flat. I wanted to like Pandora more (and to stop calling her Dora because does anyone NOT think of the little cartoon character when they say that name?), but something just didn't click there for me. I also wasn't quite sold on the main love interest's instantaneous attraction to her. I'm no stranger to love at first sight storylines but this one was lacking something and I'm not quite sure what. That being said, I did enjoy this author's writing and general storytelling and I would probably pick up something from her in the future.
