Sometimes all a girl needs is a little practice…
It’s been twelve months, three days, and eleven hours since accounting student Scarlett Logan made it past a second date. A pitcher of mojitos in hand, she employs her supreme graphing skills to narrow things down to one horrifying explanation. Kissing. Clearly someone needs to teach her how to kiss properly. Like, say, her best friend and roomie, Finn Mackenzie. He’s safe, he’s convenient, and yeah, maybe just a little gorgeous.
Finn knows exactly why Scarlett’s boyfriends are disappearing quickly. Him. Not a single guy she’s brought home is nearly good enough. And he’ll be damned if he lets some loser give her “kissing lessons.” No. He’ll do the honors, thank you very much. The moment their lips touch, though, everything turns upside down. But Scarlett deserves the one thing Finn can’t give her. And if he doesn’t put an end to the sexy little shenanigans, he’ll teach Scarlett the hardest lesson of all…heartbreak.
"I have never had the pleasure of reading Rachel Bailey before and I'm so glad that I gave her a chance. The writing was fantastic and the story was told in dual point of view. This happens to be one of my favorite writing styles! The writing was also funny and snarky and I found myself laughing out loud quite a bit. But, my favorite part of the story was Finn. I love me a smart and sexy nerdy guy and he really is the epitome of that. This is a fun friends to lovers romance!" - Red Cheeks Reads
