A Romance Read At Its Finest
I really liked this book because it was unlike so many romance books. It’s SIMPLE (and I mean that in the best possible way) in that you are along for the ride in “watching” how Scarlett and Rowdy meet, connect and fall for one another over a period of weeks.
There’s no excessive drama, really no secondary characters and you don’t read about anything else going on in their lives between the Friday nights that they meet up.
Despite all that, I didn’t feel like I was missing a thing or that this story was lacking or that it was just instalove.
This just goes to show how amazing Sara Ney is at writing characters, their dialogue and moving along a beautiful story of falling in love.
I honestly felt like I was just a fly on the wall (or on the porch post in their case) as they flirted and played games to learn more about each other, both trying to not come across as overeager to see the other.
I REMEMBER those nights, those feelings of meeting someone new and connecting with them in college and then seeing where things went.
Scarlett was someone that I completely identified with from the start because that would have been me, calling out a player at a party who was feeding my friends poor pick up lines or outright lies.
She didn’t hesitate in returning the next weekend after being kicked out of the baseball house. Not many girls would risk the possible humiliation, even for a hot guy.
Rowdy- I loved because he couldn’t help but fall for Scarlett and he looked forward to their Friday meet ups as much as she did, both putting themselves on the line just a bit.
His mother was a hoot too in the small glimpse that we got of her. I think what I loved most about Rowdy is that Ney didn’t make him a super human, but wrote him as a somewhat “typical” college guy who is obsessed with getting it on but who was totally sweet with Scarlett too.
This wasn’t all that he was (just wanting to get in Scarlett’s pants) so that show’s how awesome Ney can write her characters.
And the epilogue….it was absolute perfection.
If you remember the anticipation, excitement and thrill of finding love in college then you’ll totally love this book.
