Her Best Shot (Hot & Nerdy #1) by Shannyn Schroeder
With college graduation looming, three childhood friends vow to make spring break their last blast of pure fun. But at least one of them didn’t count on such incredible heat…
Layla Sharpe is definitely more math ninja than bikini babe, and her future has been calculated with razor precision. Convinced to let loose over spring break, Layla is finally ready to party—until her car breaks down halfway to her destination, leaving her stranded in Georgia with a mouthwateringly hot pool shark. She knows more than enough about angles to learn the game, but this week she wants him to appreciate her curves…
Phin Marks has never met a girl like Layla. She’s more Star Wars geek than seductress, and when he offers her a place to stay while her car is in the shop, he’s counting on the attraction between them to set the nights ablaze, no strings attached. But every moment he spends with Layla makes it harder to let her go. Can he persuade her to gamble in the most dangerous way possible…on forever?
5/10 from me. I got a copy of this via NetGalley and the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first in the Hot & Nerdy series. It's the first story that I've read by this Author. I feel the series has promise but I feel that it would have worked better as a full length story.
I didn't feel any empathy for any of the characters if I'm honest and I won't be investing any more of my time in the rest of the series.
Personally, I am getting rather tired of the novella style series and feel that readers are being somewhat short changed by them.
The only redeeming factor about it was that it didn't take long to read. I expected more from it and found it lacking.
