Official Description: (3:AM Kisses #2)
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.
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.
“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.”
