Reasonable Doubt: Full Series | Sincerely Carter Series | Turbulence series
Naughty, Dirty, Cocky (Steamy Coffee Collection of 3 books) | Mid-Life Love: Full Series
and last but not least The Layover.
My favorite you ask? Well my first introduction to Whitney was Reasonable Doubt so I will always recommend that as a first. Then I'm tied with love with the Sincerely Carter series and the Steamy Coffee Read Collection! So you know, just read them all :P
>So this WONDERFUL book is inspired by Adele's song "When We Were Young" and since I was obsessed with that song, I knew I would be obsessed with this book. I was wrong... I wasn't just obsessed with this book I was consumed. Until the very last page I was drawn in and could only live and breathe this book. It's that good.
We have Grayson Connors; football legend of University of Pittsburgh. In his senior year and will be in the top 5 picks of the NFL draft. ESPN know's his name and so does everyone at the college campus. He is known not only for winning games and championships but also winning hearts and orgasms from females all over school. Except it's senior year and something big happened last summer that has changed everything. Even though he is already in honors and getting A's he is more focused on school, football and not so much girls. That is until he meets his new Literature tutor Charlotte Taylor.
Charlotte is the definition of hardworking student. She also in honors is ready to finish the school year with great grades and hard working hours doing so. When a mix up happens where she is short some credits she is forced to tutor the cocky yet sexy football star Grayson. The last thing she wants is over confident Grayson wiggling his way into her heart. Not only was she sheltered growing up but she also does not have the experience Grayson would expect or want. So no matter how sexy he is, Charlotte will deny deny deny that Grayson does not make her heart flutter or her cheeks to blush.
The first few chapters are the past - 7 years ago and we get to see how Grayson and Charlotte meet. Their tutoring sessions are rough and Charlotte is trying to get out of it anyway that she can. But then we get a glimpse of the present and things have not changed. Charlotte definitely doesn't want to see Grayson at this 7 year reunion. So of course I am DYING to know what happened between the two of them on a Tuesday. Always on a Tuesday. Heck the reunion is ON A TUESDAY!
Throughout the book we go back and forth between 7 years ago and present. Not once was it confusing. Not once did I not enjoy the time lapse. The reason? Because Whitney G knows how to write a damn good book! Everything fit, there was not questions unanswered and the secrets and betrayal of why they stopped talking for 7 years was perfectly explained. Do I think that the characters were being dumb?! OF COURSE. I would of fought tooth and nail but they both lacked that at the time and both were still young.
We get the HEA that I wasn't sure was going to happen. We get another PERFECT book written by Whitney G. This right here is why is one of my favorite authors!
In contrast to her other books, here the characters lacked depth. There was zero backstory, so it is hard to understand the characters and their motivations. There was also pretty much no love story. It was instalove without any real connection. It really felt like chapters were missing. SPOILER ALERT! They go from secret kissing to more with no real transition or growth. NOTHING HAPPENS! She literally glosses over and generalizes their relationship growth saying weeks pass, etc. But nothing even happens in the scenes we do get. The sexy scene was lacking emotion, which given the circumstances seems inexcusable. They encounter one obvious hurdle, but again no growth in the relationship. There is one surprise, which could have provided a great opportunity for growth, but instead that is handled in about 5 pages without dealing with the emotional consequences of the event. Then they fall right back into place. It was just way too basic. Sorry Whitney. I really hope 30 Day Boyfriend and Forget You, Ethan are better than this and closer to the depth and interest in your other books.
Whitney G. is a favorite author of mine, but that is because I can trust that I will get a well formed story, with a sexy hero who isn't afraid to be dirty, and in the end I'm always left satisfied with my purchase. She is a one-click author for me. All that to say, typically I'm left fanning myself, but my surprise here was Grayson's sweetness, which is a bit different than her past few books which have landed more on the "melt you panties off" side of the scale. I was still satisfied, just surprised.
Overall, it had its dirty moments, and its sweet moments, and my only issue was I wish we had more of them together in the end. I sort of felt like it ended a little soon, but the epilogue was sufficient, so I won't deduct any starts.
Overall, I think Cambria Hebert's #Nerd trilogy or Tillie Cole's Sweet Home handled the tutor-jock trope much better, but this was definitely worth the read.
