Junior Saunders is searching for the perfect woman: gracious, elegant, and meek. He waits patiently, working long hours and going home alone night after night, believing that this woman exists. But life isn’t always predictable; curveballs can be thrown unexpectedly.
Kinsey Balterson is everything but gentle, delicate, and docile. She says it like it is—a spitfire, full of sarcasm with looks to kill. She’s downright sexy and thrilling in every way possible. Kinsey is a constant reminder of everything Junior detests in a woman, but the moment he lets his guard down, she captures his attention.
Can opposites really attract?
From this moment on, nothing is the same for Junior again. Everything he thought he wanted and needed no longer exists, and now his whole world has been shifted. His reason for breathing consists only of her—Kinsey. She has become his everything.
Kinsey thinks she has this all under control: friends with benefits, no strings attached—no messy feelings. She refuses to be broken again. But what happens when attraction turns into something deeper? Will Kinsey be able to let her walls down so her damaged heart can love again?
Can one person truly heal another’s heartbreak?
Kinsey is living with Junior, it is apparent in the opening chapters that they cannot stand each other, and especially Kinsey, cannot wait to get out of the lease and find her own place. Junior however doesn’t want to change their living situation yet well apart from just sharing one room rather than having two separate rooms.
Junior. He’s not like I thought he was going to be, he’s overprotective and a typical male but he also has a deeper side. It is obvious that he doesn’t just jump into relationships with anyone, that person has to mean something to him. I connected with Junior a lot more in this book but I do love Kinsey’s bluntness and her tendency to say it like it is. She’s a breath of fresh air and it is good to read.
I spent the majority of this book wanting to slap some sense into these characters, I mean, hello! You like her, she likes you, just stop hiding from it! Life is way too damn short for the back and forth stuff, just stop it! I may be too passionate about this book but I’m in love with the characters. The only drawback of this book for me personally is the ‘friends with benefits’ aspect. It felt out of place for me but that’s probably because I was really hoping that they would focus on being exclusive so that’s not a reflection on the author but more what I would have preferred. All in all, I really enjoyed this book and give it a solid 4 stars!
