A bombshell bookworm. A chronic Casanova. And a lesson in chemistry too scandalous for school.

When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?

Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna’s…until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget. Now that Hanna’s discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.

H.O.L.Y S.H.I.T. I absolutely ADORED this book!!!!! Every second I was reading I was totally rooting for the two to just bring it home and get it together..and man, did they ever 🙂 It was definitely my favorite in the series!!! I mean, don’t get me wrong..I loved Bennett, Chloe, Max, and Stella!! BUT WILL AND HANNA WERE JUST FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC 😉

Like the blurb says, the story starts off with Hanna, a lonely-ish, being lectured by her brother to basically get a life, and to call his totally gorgeous and HOT HOT HOT best friend from high school for help. UM, best.start.ever. There was nothing that could go wrong with this scenario, unless Hanna didn’t call Will, which SHE TOTALLY DID *grins* And, so the story begins with this beautiful story and their equally beautiful story.

First things first, I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED Hanna!!!!! OMG. She was like a mix of blunt/sexy Chloe from Beautiful Bastard and sweet/beautiful Sara from Beautiful Stranger, which was probably why I liked her so much. She was the heroine that completed the series for me, taking the best of both of the previous two, and adding some serious humor into the mix 😀 Hanna was nothing like I expected her to be. I expected her to be the typical bookish, shy, naive girl who probably doesn’t have much experience (because thats probably what her brother was trying to get her to do). but I was soooooo wrong!! She was an amazing woman. She was so honest and sometimes even crass, and every time she opened her mouth, it was so unexpected, and most of the time DARN FUNNY, that I was laughing out loud, with no shame. YEP. she was a pretty good one.

AND best thing? She totally did it for Will. This book completely won me over within the first few chapters. The first time Hanna and Will talked to each other, ( Ziggy btw is such a cute nickname 😉 ) I KNEW that this was gonna be one smoking book. WILL, oh dear sweet god Will…He was one hot piece of work. Yeah..totally deserving of the “beautiful player” title, but MAN, with Hanna, he was just the perfect man! He completely eased her into “relationships” *giggles* and DAMN, was he good at everything he did. And therefore, their time in bed was well spent. That was some HOT stuff. 🙂 As in, this was me:

HEHE. yeeep. Will was pretty amazeballs.

For me, personally though, it was his down-to-earth and accepting nature. Hanna was not a normal one. She was adorably funny, unique, and quite honestly, not for every man, but those two completed each other perfectly! Will was totally open to Hanna’s unfiltered mouth, and she posed the perfect challenged to the guy who once thought he had seen every kind of girl.

But whatever my comfort with the opposite sex, it didn’t seem seem to help me at all with Hanna. She felt like a separate creature, a separate species. She threw all my experience out the window

SEE? THEY WERE MEANT FOR EACH OTHER. Will, to be the man that would introduce Hanna to the world of love and fun, and Hanna, to be the woman to teach Will about that same world, and posing the challenges and fears he’d never had to fear before.

Speaking of that unfiltered mouth of Hanna’s, though…one word: HILARIOUS.

‘Get over your man-angst, Will. We had sex.  You’re supposed to do this kind of thing better than anyone. I’m, not asking for a key to your apartment….I’m not asking for a repeat, you egomaniacal jerk.’

And with that, she hung up.

BAM. HAHA. SHE WAS PURE GENIUS. This is probably one of the only times that I can’t decide who I’m in love with more, the girl or the guy. Hanna was seriously badasss!!

Well, basically this book was SOOOO DARN GOOD!!!! 🙂 I loved every part of it, from Hanna and Will’s teaching/friends stage to Chloe and Bennett and the rest of the gang, to the cutest ending these two could have had!

5/5, because let’s be serious. That was some badass girl and some fiiine boy right there 😉
