Allergic to fun


He’s all dirty jokes and curse words, while she’s quiet and shy. She blends into the background, while he is the center of everyone’s attention.

Clay Mitchell never expected to fall in love. Especially not with a girl he’s known all his life and one who’s always been off-limits.

Opposites might attract, but in this case of explosive chemistry, someone's heart is bound to be shattered.

As enemies become friends and friends morph into more; Clay has definitely met his match.

DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book in exchange for honest review. Definitely not for anyone who is easily uncomfortable reading NA content. Mature: for 18+

Prepare for some major . . . NA content. The first few pages are rather explicit as a random girl gives Clay a . . . a lap dance. But this opens our mind to the understanding that . . . Clay is all over with the girls. But there is only one girl he teases the most, and that is his younger brother's best friend, Katrina. Or Kat . . . Kitty Kat.

Of course, you know it has been done before: Bad boy, good girl, brother's best friend. Girl is in love with the brother. They can't stand each other . . . all known facts in such books, but you have not read it told by this author. Every author has their own way to tell something that seem to have been "overdone", and Stacey definitely tells it in a new way.

It was very easy to fall in love with Clay and Kat. Both character are strong and easy to relate to, and it is fun to follow them slowly unwind with each other. Kat . . . I reflect on Kat quite a bit. She is always so forgiving to Max (Clay's brother and her best friend) whenever he does something that totally crushes her. There is a point in the book when she just can't take it anymore. And the dude is completely oblivious to how she truly feels. I just feel like I've been there before, but not exactly. Just her character in general feels like me. I think that is important in any book. That the reader can connect to a character this way.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars.
I happen to own several of Stacey's Nashville Nights books. I've just made the connection while pulling this post together. I am definitely going to be reading those now that I am HOOKED on Stacey's writing. ♥
