Laney Sawyer used to believe in love and all of the trappings that happily ever after could provide until Ryder Capwell crushed her heart. When Laney is auctioned off as a prize at the drama department fundraiser the last person she expects to trade cold hard cash for her company is Ryder.

Ryder Capwell is in love with Laney Sawyer. One year ago she walked out of his life and took the light of his world right along with her. Ryder would do anything to have another chance with Laney, including purchasing her for the evening courtesy of Whitney Briggs University, and he does just that.

One thing leads to whiskey, which leads to a one-night stand. She thinks it’s revenge sex—he thinks its make-up sex. Things can only go wrong from here.

My Take:

This is a little novella. It is confusing really, it starts in the middle of the story, I am not sure if any of Laney’s story is in the first book, the names seem familiar, but it has been a while since I read 3:AM Kisses. What can I say about this book? Have you read Addison Moore’s other books?Have you read any other new adult genre books? Well, this is the same as all of those. I just kept reading and thinking “I’ve read this before right?” The story of Laney and Rider just didn’t seem special, it was too predictable, too mushy love story, but mostly a sex story.  Laney has to deal with a rich boyfriend and the expectations of a white-collar family.  Though Laney is not the classiest of broads herself.  The writing is not the best of Ms Moore’s work, though it seems like she just is turning out formulaic new adult these days. Honestly the whole time I read this book, I felt lost. It is like you are starting in the center of the book instead of the beginning. I have hope that future books will fare better than this little one.

Quote:

“Sometimes you need to say things with actions, you need to show one another that the inherent promises a relationship entails are going to be kept. That when you give your heart away, the person you give it to will protect it at all costs. Every girl dreams of being loved with an unquenchable fire —- and the only person who I’d want that combustible affection from is right here next to me, lighting up the sheets.”

3:AM Kisses

by Addison Moore
Kindle EditionRead January 15, 2014

Original Release Date: September 17, 2013

Length: 307 pages

Official Description: This is book #1 of the 3:AM Kisses series

New Adult Romance *Sexual situations* Mature audiences*

Baya Brighton is looking forward to her first year at Whitney Briggs University, new friends, dorm life, and finally being close to her brother again. Love is the last thing on the list, but when Baya meets her brother’s roommate she begins to have thoughts and feelings that make even her blush.

Bryson Edwards has a secret he prefers buried in the past and long forgotten. He keeps himself busy with the important things, loose girls, fast cars, and long nights working at the string of bars his family owns. When his roommate’s sister shows up on the scene, she’s far too innocent and sweet for him but he can’t shake Baya out of his mind and worse, it looks like she’s seeping into his heart as well.

Baya seems determined to show her brother she’s not a little kid and equally determined to use Bryson’s body to prove her point. It’s been made pretty clear that Baya is off limits to Bryson but their undeniable sparks explode into a whole lot more than just a few 3:AM KISSES.

My Take:

I have to say that I like Addison Moore, I have read a ton of her work and plan to keep on reading her books. This book was just kind of ok though. It was more of the same, you know as all of the New Adult books that are out there. The girl, Baya is a college freshman who is going to the same school as her older brother. First day on campus she flashes her future soul mate, Bryson, who just so happens to be best buds and roomies with Baya’s brother. So of course this book is 99% about sex, or trying to have sex, with a little bit of tragic past, and surprise ‘twist’ at the end. So, you know how this book is going to go down as soon as you start reading. I kind of liked Someone to Love a tad bit more, but it has been so long since I’ve read it, I just don’t know. It’s really hard to top the Falling Into You in the whole NA genre.

Here is what I don’t like about this book. The two men in Baya’s life are panty chasing man-whore’s who put literal tally’s on their doors and we know that Bryson is in the near triple digits and Cole has dipped into to more than he did. That is just gross. I mean ew, luckily they point out the Bryson just had a physical and is all good, because if it were me I’d just see a walking STD. Then there is Baya’s brother, Cole, who is really just overbearing and overprotective, but too busy getting busy with it to notice his sister. What kind of woman would throw herself into the bed of someone who is just going to screw and leave? Well, ever college girl on campus apparently.

What I liked, Bryson obviously is grieving, and that’s why he’s banged everything in his grasp, and he decides that Baya is too good for his man-whoring. So, he assures her that she doesn’t need to act like the other women around him by wearing tons of make up and wearing hooker clothes, because she’s beautiful the way she is. It’s sweet, Bryson has a sweet side and they work well together. I wish there was a little less sex talk and more emotional attachment because that would make their courtship so much better. Hey, that’s my opinion. I totally get why Baya likes Bryson, he’s the bad boy, and good girls like the bad boys that they feel are out of their grasps.

So, overall the book is ok…it’s sweet, but way to clichéd and sarcastic. Will I read the rest of the series? Yes, I actually do like the characters, and we will see different character’s stories in following books. The books are light, fun and easy to read. They don’t make me tear up like other books, they don’t pull at my heart-strings, but I still enjoyed the ride. Plus, total sucker for Ms. Moore’s work.
