It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time
It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time - Kylie Scott
I Picked Up This Book Because: Because of the title..and my enjoyment of the author’s other works

The Characters:

Adele Reid:
Peter “Pete” Gallagher:
Andrew: Adele’s Dad, Shanti: Adele’s Stepmother, Adele’s best friend, starts with an M

The Story:

Adele has been in love with Pete since she was sixteen. The problem is Pete is around thirteen years older than her. The bigger problem is Pete lovers her too. She’s his best friend, his “person” and it is ruined once Adele turns eighteen and decides she is old enough. A clumsy and thwarted attempt at seduction separates them for seven years. Now Adele’s dad, who is also Pete’s business partner, is getting married and Adele is forced into Pete’s home and back into his heart.

Their reunion was rough, funny and touching. I feel like I could tell Pete loved Adele throughout the book but tried really hard to do what is “right”. (view spoiler)

The Random Thoughts:

Strong (Stage Dive #4.5; 1001 Dark Nights #88) by Kylie Scott
Strong - Kylie Scott

 

She refuses to be tamed. He loves a challenge. The heat is on and is quickly reaching a fever pitch. Each thinks they have the other figured out, but looks can be deceiving. Scott has created a world of tempting sin that kicks the heart into overdrive with the sensual, but melts your emotions with it's sensitivity. Sam and Martha are proof that sometimes imperfect could end up being the perfect fit. Strong is a tale of living your own truth and wearing the scars to prove it. It's sexy, it's gritty, it's fabulous.

Flesh By Kylie Scott 99 cents!
Flesh - Kylie Scott

Ali has been hiding in an attic since civilization collapsed eight weeks ago. 

When the plague hit, her neighbors turned into mindless, hungry, homicidal maniacs.

Daniel has been a loner his entire life. Then the world empties and he realizes that being alone isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Finn is a former cop who is desperate for companionship, and willing to do anything it takes to protect the survivors around him.

When the three cross paths they band together; sparks fly, romance blooms in the wasteland and Ali, Daniel and Finn bend to their very human needs in the ruins of civilization.

Lust, love and trust all come under fire in Flesh as the three battle to survive, hunted through the suburban wastelands.

Chaser
Chaser - Kylie Scott Chaser proves that fate has a sense of humor. Why does the right thing, happen at the wrong time? That's the irony we call life. Chaser though not always funny is good for a few laughs. Ms. Scott delivers wisdom with a wry sense of humor and a hearty dose of reality. She prides herself on not being too serious, but always being right on time.

Twist (Dive Bar)
Twist (Dive Bar) - Kylie Scott Hmmmph.

I feel like the hero was "great." Steady, teddy bear, just fine. Clearly a cool, chill dude...but that's...it.

This is by far the weakest of Kylie Scott's books for me. The heroine was strange and hard to identify with, and frankly I couldn't get over her referring to her trans best friend as "him," discussing a story pre-transition, but saying Val interchangeably during that story. If she identified as female, then maybe just say "she?" Sorry, maybe nitpick, and so besides the point...

It was also weird, the couple discussed trying new stuff and suddenly it felt like they were banging. I was wondering if I fell asleep for a little bit (I'm being serious here, I was sleep-reading late last night- WE all do it right? Doze off then wake up to read a couple sentences, repeat.). I tried a couple times to figure out if it felt out of the blue, and it still did. Someone can call me on that, for I may not be the most reliable.

Totally unlike Kylie Scott, there were some weird plot devices to create Alex's outsider status, which she did totally fine on her own. She liked sex a whole whole lot but hated strangers, even though that's all she'd ever done before...She hated rejection and feared it but did crazy things showing up out of the blue and refusing to leave. Her character was inconsistent for me and it was confusing.

And disappointingly, my heart didn't start pounding till Jimmy from Lead showed up with toddlers in tow and that lasted about 6 words.

In sum, I'm disappointed.
