Book Whisperer's Rating:
It’s lust at first sight when Mac sees Jason shirtless and sweating on the back of a truck. Jason is the army sergeant assigned to support the six‐week scientific expedition that Mac is participating in, and might just be the perfect candidate for another journey of discovery that Mac is desperate to undertake — sex.
Fraternisation between students and staff might be strictly prohibited, but everybody knows fruit always tastes better when it’s forbidden.
This novella is a quick read that gets straight to the point; Mac wants to lose her V-card. Who better than the army sergeant Jason that is in charge of the expedition that Mac is a part of; with a rule that no fraternization is allowed. We always want what we can’t have.
What I liked about this is the fact that even though she sees Jason in the first chapter and lusts after him (hard core,) she doesn’t get him right off the bat. Timing was not in Mac’s favor for a good portion of the book because there was never a moment when they could really be alone together. It made me want for that moment even more because Ellink’s held off on giving it to me. When the moment came, I had all this anticipation built up that it was like a little party in my head.
However, I will say that Mac and Jason did not have the connection that I wanted between them. While they were a cute couple, they weren’t the best couple. If I could change this book, I would make it longer so that I could really get to know Mac and Jason and see the chemistry develop between them besides just their lust for each other.
