Description: Sometimes all a girl needs is a little practice...
It's been twelve months, three days, and eleven hours since accounting student Scarlett Logan made it past a second date. A pitcher of mojitos in hand, she employs her supreme graphing skills to narrow things down to one horrifying explanation. Kissing. Clearly someone needs to teach her how to kiss properly. Like, say, her best friend and roomie, Finn Mackenzie. He's safe, he's convenient, and yeah, maybe just a little gorgeous.
Finn knows exactly why Scarlett's boyfriends are disappearing quickly. Him. Not a single guy she's brought home is nearly good enough. And he'll be damned if he lets some loser give her "kissing lessons." No. He'll do the honors, thank you very much. The moment their lips touch, though, everything turns upside down. But Scarlett deserves the one thing Finn can't give her. And if he doesn't put an end to the sexy little shenanigans, he'll teach Scarlett the hardest lesson of all...heartbreak.

DISCLAIMER: I requested an e-ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Also, I wrote this review while reading the book. It definitely helped keep things moving. ♥
Characters/Plot: I really like the name Scarlett, and Finn, so that was something that caught my attention when I went for the book. Scarlett and Finn have fours year worth of friendship between them, which I found adorable. I love books like that. What starts out as just a lesson, turns into something unintended, but epic at the same time. The story takes place in Australia, which I thought is awesome. I don't read many books in that setting. This is a new adult novel, so I would suggest the appropriate reading crowed.
My Honest Opinions/Thoughts: Fell in love with Finn from the moment he started trying to convince Scarlett that she was thinking the wrong things about herself. Imagine having that kind of friend, which every girl should definitely have. I was right there along with every UP and DOWN that came. Yelling at the characters to pull it together. Heck! I cried when there a the MASSIVE bump in the road.
Extra: More visuals! I've gone visual crazy, but hey! it works in my head. Finn has blue eyes, so lets have blues eyes!
Does this help? See what I mean? Visuals are awesome, and this un-named dude fits Finn perfectly. At least, I think he does. No one in particular came to my head, so I just searched for blue eyed hotties (not in those words), and this guy stuck out. Look how he stares at you!
However, if I should take a pick, in terms of what Finn looks like . . .
I visualize Harry Treadaway *sighs* - I mean, he's British, extraordinarily good looking, and a total heart-throb. . . Okay, not this picture. . .
This is Finn, with the blue eyes from above. *dies*
And as for Scarlett . . .
#SorryNotSorry for using Lucy Hale again, but she is so pretty and I admire her a lot. Thank you so much for joining me again! Be sure to keep an eye out for the book release! Grab your copy ASAP!

About The Author
I live with my own personal hero and four dogs on the east coast of Australia. Our house is on my dream property – 10 acres of native trees on the side of a hill, within driving distance to the beach.
I've always loved dogs. I'm extremely fond of all animals, but dogs have a special place in my heart. My current pack is: Dougal the Border Collie (the most perfect dog that ever there was), Oliver, a black Lab x doberman (the Heathcliffe of dogs - all brooding, clingy and likely to snap) and Fergus the Jack Russell (the canine Bart Simpson).
