How Acquired: Won

Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn't even the right word.

Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it--any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.

Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy Peter shows her the door. Sidney takes the walk of shame and leaves. It's the end of the worst blind date ever. Her life couldn't possibly reach higher levels of suckage, but it does.

The next morning everything comes crashing down. The insanely hot guy from last night, the one that saw her half naked, is teaching at the front of the class room. (Taken from

My Review: 
Ok, so, I have quite a few things to say about this book. First, and foremost...because I've started watching Supernatural lately, in my mind, Peter Grantz looks like Misha Collins (aka Castiel). Yes, please!

Oh good heavens that is one nice looking man. So, I found it highly amusing when I got to the point in the book where we discovered that her brother's name is Sam and her ex's name is Dean. Hello, boys! 

Except, wah wah wah, sad day that this Sam and Dean are NOT like the Winchester boys. The Sam and Dean in this book are total scum.

Anyway, I really enjoyed this book. The way Peter and Sidney met was amusing. I enjoyed their witty banter and relentless flirting. I felt Sidney's heartbreak when she began to realize her feelings for Peter, but knew that it would put both of their futures in jeopardy. I felt, based on Sidney's past, that there was going to be some big traumatic event that may throw her and Peter together again, but I didn't see it playing out the way it did. I loved seeing Peter step up to the plate and protect her and look after her. 

So, I give this book a 4.5 stars...the ONLY reason it didn't get a full five stars is because it was a cliff-hanger. I am SO tired of cliff-hangers. Can we just have a story where it begins and ends in the same book? Of course, I will most likely read the second one, it is just frustrating because I need closure!

My Rating: I really, really liked it
