Nothing good comes after the third date.
Date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he’ll get weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.
Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.
So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked or that he can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.
Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.
5 AWESOME STARS*****
I had never read a Staci Hart book before and now she has a new fan, for life! I can’t even begin to explain the awesomeness that this book is. Tons of laughter, tons of hot sex, tons of crazy best friends shenanigans, just over the top amazing. And now I want more!!!!!
Penny is a tattoo artist who lives life on the fun side. She doesn’t have time for heartache, which is why she always keeps it simple with the guys she meets. If the guy is hot and the sex is great, Penny will give him three dates then move on to the next guy. Uncomplicated fun and everybody wins.
Penny has a great job she loves, amazing best friends who are also her roommates and a beautiful array of men willing to show her a good time, so she’s having the time of her life.
One day she meets a gorgeous guy that after three dates Penny simply can’t give up. This guy is someone from her past who knows exactly why Penny keeps love far away from her.
Bodie is a hot mathematician who develops video games for a living and also loves to surf. Bodie is a fun guy, and he’s been crushing after Penny for a long time and now that he has his chance, he will do anything to show her how great relationships can be. The problem is that bad habits are hard to shake and sometimes love just isn’t enough.
I LOVED THIS BOOK, it has everything I look for in a great read. The writing style was simple yet skilled and the plot and characters were relatable, easy to love and impossible to forget. I love a book with a strong heroine who makes me laugh and isn’t afraid to be herself. I can see myself reading Staci Hart books forever and ever. Make sure to check out her books, because I can tell that they are all full of good times.
