3.5 Stars

Nutty bars, zebra cakes, twinkies, fudge pops, twix, reece's peanut butter cups, ding dongs, shots, orgasms, balls, pecs, back dimples, and fingers!! Face it, some of the best things in life come in two's. Even the genius minds over at Wrigley knew...double the flavor, double the fun. Imagine having two...of EVERYTHING! Yes please!

Grab your "oh shit" handle because this book starts off strong! The big "oopsie" moment had me doubled over. Slap my ass in a plaid skirt because I giggled like a school girl!! I'm also blown away by M. Leighton's ability to juggle three POVs...THREE! Four balls, two penises, and a vagina...and she pulls it off! The flow never faltered...the story kept coming! Amazing!

So why not a higher rating? Well, the book was hot (like bend me over the bar hot) and entertaining with a strong plot, but nothing just made it really stand out for me. It would have stood out, but dammit I knew. I didn't want to know, but I knew. From the start, I knew. If I hadn't known, then knowing wouldn't have taken away from the story. I didn't try to know and if I could have de-knowned, I would have. I wish I could take back my know, but I can't. Once you know, you know...and I knew. I really did enjoy the book, but I needed not to know to make it great. You know??

Regardless though, I am dying for the sequel. The epilogue left me...well it just left me! It left me hanging, left me craving, left me wanting more!! So much more! You can't just stir up stuff like that then stop. Isn't there some sort of author police out there that can intervene? I NEED MORE!! I will be reading more! Give me more...NOW!!

Here's a book random...

I will never be able to hear this song without thinking of Cash...NEVER!

It doesn't say what song it was, but I did link it to Flo Rida in my review Robin! ^^^^^^^^^^^^ That's what my whole paragraph was about! Click on my link, lol!


Robin - Wicked By Design So much work :P ok


Robin - Wicked By Design That is what I get for not clicking on links.. i would swear it said it was that song but maybe it's because i assumed


Autumn Review I loved this book. I'm glad you liked it and I love your review! Can I stroke you with my vagina hand?


Joanne careri I totally agree with your rating for exactly the same reasons. I'd rate it 3.5 as well.

I know what you mean. I've some reviews before reading this and I kinda "knew" from the start. Also, had I known that the epilogue would is just a huge cliffhanger I would've waited to read this until the series is over. regarding the whistling, I was wondering what the song was, too!!! I had to think of what songs I knew that had whistling in it and all I could think of is , "moves Like Jagger". (only because Adam Levine is my celebrity boyfriend).

Shea The song is Whistle by Flo Rida. On Ms. Leighton's website she has a playlist of all the songs in the book and where they are in the book.
