More like frustrated balls of sexual tension and neither will give in.
crazy. He uses her office like a phone booth, takes cupcakes from the corner of
her desk like she baked them just for him. She didn’t. Maybe she knew the
history teacher happened to love peanut butter icing, but that was purely a
coincidence. All sixteen times.
too. She calls him out on his crap, spoils him even if inadvertently, and
seeing the librarian in skirts drives him wild. She won’t give in. It’s for the
best, really, considering there’s no way he could lie to a woman like that and
he’s not about to tell her the truth about himself. Not in a million years.
really like each other. But for this to be a friends-to-lovers story, they have
to start somewhere, right?
My goodness, I never wanted to curl up into a ball and just become a blubbering mess like I did while reading Craft. Lance and Mariah’s story was not what I expected especially after reading Crank.
It’s just so sad when it’s clear as day when two people are meant to be together, but a little truth withholding sets one of them back from making it official.
Lance … I don’t even know where to start with him? Despite being a witty and charming man, plus enjoying playing the field a bit, there was just SO MUCH more to him than all of that. A history teacher that I’m sure everyone wished they had. He’s quite the layered man and the deeper you get into the book, you slowly peel away the layers that lead to the true man he is. And it’s absolutely stunning!
Mariah, you’ll love her just as much as you’ll love Lance! After being so hurt by not only her ex, who she thought was going to be her end game but her family as well. They’re a bunch of sharks, so horrible, you’ll wonder at this point in time if there’s anything redeeming about them. She’s definitely better off without them, but family is family. She’s beautiful, smart, kind and a boss at baking!
There’s a lot of tip toeing around with their story and it’s a bit heartbreaking, it’ll pull up all the feels that you never thought imaginable. I’m serious, everything I felt during this book was not what I expected at all. Be ready to be captivated by Lance and Mariah, and just witnessing their story unfold and lead to their happy ever after.
As of right now, Lance is my leading man out of the Gibson gang. I couldn’t put this one down and I never wanted it to end. Can they just have another book, pleaseeeeee? Highly recommend this to EVERYONE! I’m all ready for the next Gibson brother 🙂
