What's your lucky number?
Lyla Wilder is done being the shy, chemistry nerd extraordinaire. While every other college student is out having fun, Lyla is studying. With her cat. Well, she's played it "safe" quite enough, thank you. So she creates a "College Bucket List" with item #7 being a night of uninhibited, mind-blowing sex...But she needs some help from her man-whore best friend.
Hockey player Beck Davenport thought Lyla's transformation would be subtle. Man, was he wrong. With every item she ticks off, Beck finds himself growing seriously hot for his sweet, brainiac best friend. And if he's not careful, he'll end up risking their friendship in order to convince Lyla that he might just be her lucky #7...
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I’m happy that the few NA books I’ve read lately have been on the “good” side.
While this one has a definite The Deal (Elle Kennedy) feel to it, it wasn’t really a turn-off, more of a reminder that I loved that book so maybe this would work out for me too.
Beck is the hot captain of the hockey team. Layla is the shy and nerdy girl who’s hiding a mother of a body under her hippy-chick clothes. They are friends since they had to work together in a chemistry class.
They have a totally platonic friendship, that is until Layla decides that she doesn’t want to be a goody-two-shoes anymore. She wants to have the college experience that everyone else seems to be having (you know: partying, making out with whomever, wild sex in public bathrooms and another number of stupid things kids seem to think are cool to do in your late teens and early twenties). This part kind of annoyed me a little bit, but this is NA so I had to go with it.
So, onward with a life-style change, Layla asks Beck to be her college-experience coach. Well, you can imagine the rest. Suddenly there’s this voluptuous redhead hot chick with Layla’s personality and Beck can’t keep it in his pants, I mean, he sees Layla in a new light.
There is this huge secretive thing about Beck’s family that I felt it was kind of over mystified. Some of Layla’s issues with her family and her life were proper to her age so I didn’t really care for them, but as a whole, I really enjoyed this book. It left me with a smile on my face and a happy mood.
It had some very funny banter, some really hot moments and an excellent pace. I’m definitely going to take a look at Ms. Madsen’s previous work as I really liked her style.
