Series: One Week #1
on September 19, 2017
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.
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"**
I was expecting sooo much more.
First of all, I think i said it before, but i don’t enjoy reading books that happen both in the past and in the present. My blonde brain can focus on a scrambled timeline.
Second, I hate not knowing wtf is happening. You know, when you have to read 95% of the book to understand everything. Not funny. I’m that girl who always reads the epilogue first, even though i know for sure there’s a HEA. So keeping me in the dark, again, not funny.
Third: lacking originality. Seriously? Yet another book where the jock needs tutoring and ends up falling in love with the straight A girl? And here’s the thing: he might be the football star, but he’s also got straight As, so why are we here?
Forth: the “lacking originality” theme continues until the very end: View Spoiler »They got separated for 7 freakin’ years because of his agent, who thought Mr. MVP-Multiple Times Super Bowl champion, would be better off without the love of life and better with meaningless models. « Hide Spoiler. How many times have we heard that before?
I gave it 3* in the end, just because of the H (which is kinda nice) and because of that Tuesday thing.
