She’s the Girl Next Door
Maci Price isn’t really into relationships. Having four very protective older brothers has always made having a boyfriend very difficult, anyway. But her friend is set on finding her the perfect guy – and thinks the mysterious Connor Green is the perfect pick.
He’s Her Brother’s Best Friend
Connor Green is trying to find himself again. He loved then lost and it’s time for him to pick up the pieces. His brooding is making his friends crazy, but, Maci Price, who has grown up into a gorgeous and incredibly sexy woman, is about to break the spell.
They’re Made for Each Other
When Maci starts up old pranks to get Connor out of his slump, an all out war leads to a night that will break all their rules, and a relationship they must keep hidden. Together they’re electric. Apart they’re safe. And soon they’ll find they’re exactly what the other needs.
A fabulous, fun, and sexy, New Adult novella from New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams. If you loved Connor in From Ashes, this is the story for you.
I am going to preface this by saying that I have not read From Ashes, which is where the character of Connor comes from. But I have read Molly before and I loved her writing, so I knew I had to read this novella. And i am so excited that I did, because this book was amazing.
Needing her is about Connor and Maci, two twenty-something young people who have known each other since they were kids. But Connor is not the same guy Maci knew as a kid, and she will do anything to bring that guy back. Even if it means falling hard for a guy she knows she shouldn't.
This is a young adult novella and it has everything you would want in a NA. It has sexual tension from the very start, and it has a conflict that made me want to punch a wall (which for me is a good thing!) and obviously some very good (and hot!) love scenes. I read this book in one setting and I am so glad I did because I could not put this book down even if I tried.
The characters were amazing because they felt real. They each had their own issues, but unlike some NA out there, those issues did not take over the entire story. Connor and Maci had chemistry right off the bat and I loved them together, they brought out the best in one another and I hope to see them in another story in the future. But I know what I will be reading soon; From Ashes ;)
