“I don’t think this can be the most original plot device but the overall story was enjoyable. It’s a fast read and Hudson has his sexy moments (and his asshole moments) so it was fun to read even if not the most memorable story out there.”
~ Under the Covers
We briefly met Hudson and Gracie in SCREWED and although I admit I wasn’t dying for their story, if there was anyone out of that book I would’ve picked to have a book it was Hudson and I’m always a sucker for the best friends’ sister trope.
I had already found SCREWED to be a bit lackluster and “unexciting” so I went into this one with sort of low expectations. The fact that it was a novella probably helped this story along in my opinion. Hudson has always had a crush on his best friend’s sister but he never acted on it other than being there for her as a friend, and lately not even that. He’s kept his distance to the respectful one and thought he could never get her. Gracie on the other hand always had a crush on him and dreamed of getting with him. But she’s now realized that will never happened so decides to move on with her life, announcing to both Hudson and her brother that she wants to lose her virginity once and for all and move on with her love life.
I don’t think this can be the most original plot device but the overall story was enjoyable. It’s a fast read and Hudson has his sexy moments (and his asshole moments) so it was fun to read even if not the most memorable story out there.
These unrelated standalones have been my only Kendall Ryan reads and as much as her writing is cute, I don’t think they have enough to pull to bring me back to checking out more.

“What if I could help you?”
I have no idea what the hell I was thinking. The words just leaped out of my mouth. Listening to Gracie talk about kicking off her granny panties and popping her cherry with some random Internet dick…I guess it drove me temporarily insane.
But there’s no taking back the idea now. Gracie sucks in her breath, blinking wide-eyed. “What do you mean?” she asks.
What do I mean? Here I am, sitting next to the world’s most beautiful girl—drowning in her eyes, her scent, the gentle puff of her breath on my mouth that begs me to close the distance. I know what I want, but I also know what will happen if I take it. My best friend will rip off my balls and feed them to me. And I’ll probably deserve every second.
But sweet Jesus, I’m pretty sure Gracie wants this, too, and that’s enough to blow my better judgment to pieces. All I care about right now is making her feel better. In as many ways as possible. And if her slightly quickened breathing, blown pupils, and flushed cheeks are anything to go by…
As an experiment, I dart out the tip of my tongue to wet my lips. Her darkened eyes drop like a magnet yanked them. Yeah, bingo. Having a little black book as thick as the dictionary has its advantages. I know damn well how to tell when a woman wants me.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
