Wow! This should happen to every woman, at least once in her life. A smoking, hot, younger, rich guy to dominate her, give her amazing orgasms, and buy her all new, expensive clothes. Sounds great to me!

Gillian is a 39 year old, divorced, college teacher. During a student/teacher meeting, Gillian’s student, Blake, confuses and intrigues the heck out of her. She’s not sure if he’s coming on to her or just being cocky, that is, until he kisses her. From there, he pursues her until she’s doing things she’d never even imagined before. And she loves every minute of it… well, except for the surprise he stages for her but you’ll have to read the book to find out what the surprise is.

Extremely sexy, laugh-out-loud funny and very well-written, ‘The 9 Minute Thing’ is a definite must-read. My only complaint is that I wanted more!!

 First, let me say that I love Kirsty Moseley’s stories. This is the third one I’ve read, and I’ve enjoyed them all, very much. Her characters have a lot of depth with realistic personalities and I found myself really falling in love with them. I’d even go so far as to say, that the main male character, Nate Peters, is my new favorite male character! He’s not only extremely masculine and good-looking but he’s romantic, thoughtful, affectionate, loyal, honorable and has a terrific sense of humor! I could go on but let’s just say that he’s pretty much perfect, and leave it at that. 
 
The plot kept my attention, was very believable and put me through a lot of different emotions. I found myself saying, ‘Just one more chapter’ a lot, and was a bit sad when it ended. The ending is a very satisfying, happily ever after, though, and there’s even a brief glimpse into the future, which I love! 
 
Now comes the hard part, the things I didn’t love…. 
 
It’s very apparent that Ms. Moseley doesn’t use a professional editor, if one at all. There are so many errors that I was taken out of the story several times, which I hate. I read as an escape and I don’t want to be reminded that it’s just a story by grammatical errors and misplaced words. Unfortunately, this book is riddled with them, and it’s a shame because it’s really a wonderful story. It’s also apparent that Ms. Moseley is not from the U.S., where the story takes place. This isn’t as big a problem for me as it was in the first book in this series but it can be distracting. If you can overlook the errors and misplaced words, I think you’ll truly enjoy this story.
 
I gave it 4 stars despite the errors because I enjoyed it that much. I truly hope that Kirsty Moseley finds a good editor, preferably from the USA, because she’s doing herself and her readers, a big disservice by not using one. Once she does, I think her story-telling talent will take her far as an author. I’m looking forward to reading more from her.
 
Happy Reading! 

Best Kind of Broken by Chelsea Fine

Close since they were young children, Levi and Sarah have spent the last year trying to just get by, day to day, alone. A year has passed since their lives were shattered, and their loneliness and sadness has kept them from really living. Their circumstances could’ve been so easily remedied if they’d only talked to each other. Unfortunately, they both blamed themselves for what drove them apart and were unable to get past their grief and guilt. Until they’re, unknowingly, finally forced together again, one of them was never able to face the other, and the other, felt abandoned and discarded.

Best Kind of Broken

There were times during ‘Best Kind of Broken’ where my heart actually ached for the two main characters. They’ve suffered a terrible loss and, because of their imagined fault, have suffered alone. You can’t help but want to hug them and tell them everything’ll be alright. It’s terrible how we beat ourselves up over something uncontrollable that’s happened.

“If I’d only done this…”

“If only I hadn’t done that…”

The ‘what-ifs’ can drive a person crazy, literally. These two dance around each other, and their feelings, until you want to yell at them to talk it out, already. When they finally do, you’ll sigh with relief and rub the aching spot over your heart. There’s still a lot of pain but they realize they haven’t been alone after-all. The people around them have been there for them all along.

I do have to admit that Levi’s parents were a little much for me. Without spoiling the plot, I did feel that they reacted a little unrealistically for their past personalities but who knows how I would feel if their situation happened to me. Their part of the ending was kind of easily ‘wrapped up’, too but once their eyes were opened to how they acted, their perspectives changed and they realized that their actions were not fair to their son, or to each other. Parents are not automatically wonderful, as we see in the news every day, and people react in different ways, so this is just my opinion. All-in-all, this was a wonderful read and I’m happy that there are more books to follow.

A good-sized cast of terrific characters, plenty of heartache and angst, and a sweet, happy ending, make this a typical, Chelsea Fine, must-read.

I received a copy of ‘Best Kind of Broken’ from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
