REVIEW:What would you do for lust, or love? Rachelle Ayala has done it again. Her writing talent just continues to grow with every new project. I've not read a lot of novellas, so the fast pace was a bit different for me, but it was a fun romp with all the delicious romance and steam you could ask for. I liked Jaden - a sweet man trying to be a macho frat jock, never suspecting that his plans to woo Ella would turn into anything more than a fun time, especially if she ever discovered the truth about his deception. Ella is great - maybe a bit odd, but in a good way. Funny and someone I could see myself being friends with. I really liked her and wanted her to get a happy ending and be able to put her past troubles behind her.
And when Jaden swoops in to rescue her and they really open up to each other... sigh. I rooted for these two all the way through. Steamy, sexy, and a lot of fun! Can't wait for Rachelle's next book!
