REVIEW – ON A TUESDAY by Whitney G.

SYNOPSIS

We met on a Tuesday.
Became best friends, then lovers, on a Tuesday.
And everything fell apart on a Tuesday… 

Charlotte Taylor has three automatic strikes in my book: 1) She hates me. She also claims that I’m a “domineering jerk with a huge, overbearing ego.” (I do have something huge. It’s not my ego, though.) 2) She takes our mandatory tutoring sessions way too seriously. 3) She’s sexy as hell…And a virgin.

At least, those were her strikes before our study sessions started lasting longer than they were supposed to. Until one innocent kiss became a hundred dirty ones, and until she became the first woman I ever fell hard for.

Our future together after graduation was supposed to be set:
Professional football for me. Law school for her.

But she left me at the end of the semester with no explanation, and then she completely disappeared from my life.

Until tonight.

We met on a Tuesday.
Became everything, then nothing, on a Tuesday.
And now it’s seven years later, on a Tuesday… 

**This is a full length second chance romance, inspired by Adele’s “When We Were Young”**

Grayson 

To this day, I’d never loved anyone the way I loved her. Hell, I honestly hadn’t “loved” anyone since her because no other woman ever compared, and it still made me angry whenever I remembered that she never had the decency to give me damn goodbye.

Charlotte 

As he pulled me closer, I warned myself that no matter what he said to me tonight, our past was long gone and it was never coming back. All of our former “Tuesdays” and hell even this Tuesday were no more and I wasn’t going to fall for it.

 

 

Whitney G. is an author whose books I automatically categorize as MUST-READS. She made me a fangirl for life with her Reasonable Doubt series and if you’ve ever had the good fortune of meeting her at a book signing, you know she is a genuinely sweet person who really adores her readers. I know that when I dive into a Whitney G. book, I am going to get a deliciously steamy and fabulous romantic comedy. I don’t think there has been a Hero she has created yet that I haven’t fallen madly in love with and I can safely say after having read ON A TUESDAY, I’ve got yet another book boyfriend to add to my top favorites shelf!

This is a second chance love story between two college sweethearts who somehow end up going their separate ways after graduation only to reunite seven years later. The book is told in alternating POVs and transitions from the past, which is during their senior year of college and then fast forwards to the present which is seven years later. We learn early on that Charlotte and Grayson have not let go of the past and they each believe that they were wronged by the other. It’s clear that major deception is at play here and as the story unfolds I believe most of you will figure out what happened before the big reveal.

 

 

Charlotte and Grayson have been going to the University of Pittsburgh for nearly four years but only just met during their senior year as Charlotte ends up being Grayson’s designated tutor for his Women’s Literature classes. While Grayson is almost instantly smitten with his beautiful and intelligent tutor, Charlotte is more than irritated and not at all impressed by Grayson’s extreme good looks or by the fact that he is one of the most talented college football quarterbacks and number one draft pick of the NFL. She knows he’s quite the player and Charlotte isn’t willing to ultimately get her heartbroken by taking a chance on Grayson who will without a doubt dump her once he’s gotten his fill of her. What she doesn’t know and takes entirely too long to realize is that most of her opinions of Grayson are based on rumors and he is quite possibly the ”real deal”. The two meet up every Tuesday in one of Charlotte’s favorite coffee houses for their study sessions and with each passing Tuesday Grayson’s charming and flirtatious personality is having an effect on her. I swooned hard over all the endearing romantic gestures Grayson made towards Charlotte.

They finally get on the same page and are soon falling deeply in love. But then after graduation, something happens that tears the couple apart, leaving both Charlotte and Grayson utterly devastated until they meet again at their seven-year college reunion.

 

 

Old feelings once buried come back to the surface even stronger than before, and with a little bit of soul searching it’s apparent that the love they once had never left their hearts. Will they be able to work things out or is what they had broken and irreparable?

I really enjoyed Grayson and Charlotte’s story but I only wish the book was just a tiny bit longer. I felt the ending was rushed and it was so easy to figure out what caused their breakup early on. Now that being said, I would still recommend this one because I am a sucker for sports romances and ladies you need to meet Grayson Connors!

Here are my overall ratings on the book:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 3.5
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

*****Mel’s Review*****
4 Stars!

 

Charlotte Taylor is a pre-law/art major at the University of Pittsburgh. She meets Heisman Trophy winner, & the #1 college star quarterback in the country, Grayson Connors, when her advisor assigns her as his literature tutor. She doesn’t like him, & isn’t happy about being stuck with him. He’s known for his touchdowns & being loved by the ladies. She thinks he’s a cocky, entitled jerk who’s full of himself. She judges him by his success & reputation, and assumes he must have an out of control ego to match his good looks & talent.

Grayson takes one look at the sexy, prickly, good girl Charlotte, & is intrigued. He’s so ridiculously attracted to her, & pursues her hard. He wants to date her, but she makes it clear she isn’t interested. He’s never had to work so hard for a girl & isn’t used to being rejected, but he doesn’t give up. He can’t figure what he ever did to make her dislike him so much.

 

Their study sessions begin lasting longer & longer, and Grayson begins to grow on Charlotte. There’s more to him than she originally thought, & he’s so gorgeous, she can’t stop fantasizing about him. Soon a kiss changes everything between them. They become extremely attached to one another, & make plans for a future together after graduation. Then she unexpectedly disappears from his life at the end of the semester with no explanation. He’s heartbroken & tries for years to find her with no luck. They lead separate lives, & then seven years later their paths cross again & Grayson wants a second chance. He’s never forgotten her, and he’s determined not to let her get away again. He wants to pick up where they left off.

Whitney G. knows how to create a swoony, delicious book boyfriend! Grayson Connors was your typical, popular football star, & Charlotte was the bookworm virgin. Classic case of opposites attract & crazy hot chemistry. I just loved Grayson!

 

-I couldn’t deny that Grayson Connors was sexy as hell.

-“I want to be with you and only you, and even though you want to deny it, I know you feel the same way.”

-“I fell in love with you months after we met in college, and I knew then that you were the only one for me.”
