Friday Night with Wild Kisses (After)

30521111-1

I was really looking forward to this book and it just didn’t quite live up to the hopes that I had for it.  Honestly this one was another book I wanted to like more than I ended up liking it. I like Skye Jordan and while I liked this book I didn’t feel like it was as good as her other series. The first 40% of the book had me fully engaged and enjoying the characters and the romance/chemistry between the two of them.

I was really looking forward to reading about Trace “our bad boy ex-con” and Avery the recently divorced woman trying to move forward and put her failed marriage behind her. Unfortunately, the “I’m not good enough for her but I want her” and the “I’m not sexy or experienced enough for him” got old after awhile. I wanted the conflict to be more something else. Even after they got together these two couldn’t move past those conflicts and the back and forth just ended up boring me a bit. I had a hard time rooting for two people who couldn’t even root for themselves. There were too many misinterpretations of the others thoughts/behaviors and characters jumping to conclusions for me as well. I ended up putting this book down a couple of times and yet I still wanted to finish it and see them get their HEA. There were plenty of steamy times and usually I love that but I found myself skimming the sex scenes since they seemed to overwhelm the story at times.

About afgypsysoul

I have always loved to read. My first memory of reading is winning a stuffed animal turtle for reading the most books in my 2nd grade class. I am a retired Air Force Officer who has traveled around the world with my kindle! I love anything with a romance. I'm a big fan of paranormal romance, urban fantasy (as long as there's a little bit or romance), romantic suspense, contemporary romance and M/M. I have over 1000 books on my kindle that I haven't read yet and somehow I keep adding more. I never leave home without my kindle and I love reading challenges. I currently live in Phoenix with my husband and two kids. I also have two wonderful dogs a lovable pitbull and a cute dachshund. I'm still hoping my kids will pick up my love for reading!
