Just Desserts Book Review


Synopsis:
*This is a New Adult Romance, intended for readers over 18. It contains scenes for mature readers. 

When her friend Julia needed help forming a revenge plan against her ex-boyfriend, Ava was happy to lend a hand. She never expected that in the course of making Liam pay, she'd be the one to fall hard. . .for the one person who was absolutely off-limits. Crushing on the guy who humiliated her best friend is definitely against the girl code.

Besides, Ava has goals. Her life is all about graduating with honors and landing the perfect job. And Liam Bailey—sweet-talking, complicated son of a well-known local politician—isn't part of those plans.

But Liam doesn't give up easily. And he doesn't intend to let their friends' opinions, his parents' disapproval or Ava's past get in the way of what he wants--Ava's heart.

My Review:  
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

Ava thought she had her life all figured out. To study hard, no partying, heavy drinking, or boys. She needed to keep her grades up and stick to her path in order to be successful. At least, that was the plan until Liam walked into her life.

Julia is Ava's best friend and college roommate. Julie was harshly dumped by her then boyfriend Liam. Julia, Ava and their friend Gift, had a plan to make Liam jealous and want Julia back. Yeah that worked really well...not!

Liam has always been attracted to Ava, but kept his distance even after he and Julia parted ways. That is, until a visit to Ava's dorm to tell her about the gossip regarding Julia. An accidental kiss starts an attraction to her best friend's ex she cannot deny. Who can? I mean he's sexy, smart, funny, sexy, athletic, and did I mention sexy?

Just Desserts is an awesome New Adult Romance. The characters are so easy to identify with; from living you life to your parents' expectations to having a broken heart. You can completely understand Ava's hesitation in following her heart and not only breaking the girl code but also detouring from her path. I thought it was so beautiful that Liam waited patiently for Ava. This is a fantastic story I'm sure will touch your heart.
