REVIEW: Rikki

Ever since junior high and an ill-fated game of seven minutes in heaven, Rikki Eisendrath and Sam Payne have hated each others’ guts. But when they end up at the same college—and the same dorm—they figure it’s time to declare a truce.

They even become friends… sort of. But when Sam asks Rikki to model for his sculpting project, they start spending more time together—and her feelings for him get more complicated.

She tries to focus on the guy she’s been crushing on instead. But Sam’s the one she can’t stop thinking about, even though their arguments are starting to heat up as much as the chemistry between them.

With antagonism and attraction this intense, there’s bound to be an explosion. But when the dust settles, will Sam and Rikki be enemies, friends… or something more?

Review: 

I haven’t read a coming of age romance in years. This being the first in a while, it was sweet, nothing overtly sexual but romantic and patient. It was lovely.
I loved that they connected intellectually, that they were each other’s first in many ways; it would be great to see their lives a few years into the future. I think when a love blossoms from seven minutes in Heaven in junior high, its bound to last.
It would have been great to get a dual POV but for a coming of age romance, it made sense that we were stuck in the mind of adolescent virgin who can’t grasp the concept of sexual frustration or apparently her own feelings.

Overall, I would recommend. I know there are other books in the series but other than Tansim, the development of the secondary characters wasn’t enough to draw me into the series as a whole.

WWW Wednesday #35


www-wednesdaysA weekly meme hosted by Samanneelizabeth formerly hosted by MizB all about, what we’re, Currently, Just Finished and About to Read

 


• What are you currently reading?

I started this with The Agreement it’s a better take on the BDSM community than Fifty Shades of Grey. Overall, I’m still on the fence, this is the second book in the story so we’ll see how it goes.

 

• What did you recently finish reading?

Lot’s of flowery descriptive writing, very poetic at times. I’m not sure the emotional turmoil was supposed to be so complicated. It was confusing and I wish it had a dual POV.

 

• What do you think you’ll read next?

I have to keep reading the series, it’s not awful enough for me to just stop 2 books in. I might as well read the novella. You should skip to the fourth book, Womanizer. So much better.

Happy WWW Wednesday!
