“Boston,” he mumbled.
“I mean…Logan…he’s like the man of my dreams! Why would I blow it? What if…” Boston continued to babble.
“Boston,” he said. The commanding sound of his voice caused Boston to cease in her prattling and look to him.
“What?” she asked, somewhat grateful he’d interrupted her panic attack.
He frowned and shook his head.
“Shut up,” he said. “You’re all worked up about nothing.” He reached out, slipping one hand beneath her hair to the back of her neck.
Boston was so startled by his touch, she couldn’t speak—she could only stare up into his mesmerizing green eyes. His hand was strong and warm, powerful and reassuring.
“If it freaks you out so much…just kiss in the dark,” he said.
Boston watched as Vance put the heel of his free hand to the light switch. In an instant the room went black.


My Review: 5 Stars

This is one of those fun and fluffy feel-good stories. I've read it three times over the years and have enjoyed each time. I love the kissing games and the little character traits and tidbits that make this story it's own. Those party games really took me back to my high school days. Fun!

Boston has a "poisonous" friend and roommate and she has had enough. Her best friend's brother, Vance, is temporarily living with her, so once he leaves, Boston can move in. But...he's a hero and makes it possible for her to do so earlier than planned.

There a several things that I really loved about this story. I think everyone has had a poisonous friend--someone who brings us down--so that made it real. I also loved how sweet Boston is. She can't say no and wants the best for everyone. She feels guilt about things when she shouldn't. Vance was a great "hero"--not perfect, but perfect for her and kind of rough around the edges. And last, but not least, I'm really craving a chocolate Tootsie pop now.

Content: very mild language; mild romance (swoony kissing, some light innuendo); very mild violence
