This review is posted on Way Too Hot Books.

My first book by Cardeno C. was Strange Bedfellows which I read last year and liked enough to try smth else by this author and to be honest- the breathtaking cover played a big part in it. Just like SB, The Half of Us was a hot, fast-pacing, drama-free doctor vs. teacher romance which I read in one sitting.

~ Why 3 stars?

Reason no. 1: I prefer slow-building and slow-burning romances. Abe & Jase hooked up right in the beginning and not until the 2nd half of the story did they start to open up and connect outside the bedroom, at least not enough for me to make their connection and chemistry belivable.

Reason no. 2: How much sex is too much sex?
Who am I to say no to lots of dirty talk and sexy times, but at some point the story turned into sex scenes overload making me count how many pages I had left and that's never a good thing. In my opinion the story was too much focused on the sexy time and less on Jase's and Abe's bonding outside the bedroom and the emotional family time parts didn't make up for that.

Reason no. 3: It took me some time to warm up to one of the MCs- the arrogant, dominant and at times overbearing doctor Jason, a man in his late 30ies who from time to time behaved as a horny, immature teenager.

Reason no. 4: My previous read was Cam Girl By L. Raeder which finds itself right now on my ultimate favorite books shelf. No offense, but this book didn't stand a chance.
