“Baya Brighton is looking forward to her first year at Whitney Briggs University, new friends, dorm life, and finally being close to her brother again. Love is the last thing on the list, but when Baya meets her brother’s roommate she begins to have thoughts and feelings that make even her blush.
Bryson Edwards has a secret he prefers buried in the past and long forgotten. He prefers loose girls, fast cars, and long nights working at the string of bars his family owns. When his roommate’s sister shows up on the scene, she’s far too innocent and sweet for him but he can’t shake Baya out of his mind and worse, it looks like she’s seeping into his heart as well.
Baya seems determined to show her brother she’s not a little kid and equally determined to use Bryson’s body to prove her point. It’s been made pretty clear that Baya is off limits to Bryson but their undeniable sparks explode into a whole lot more than just a few 3:AM KISSES”
*intended for mature audiences.
Wow! This story was completely combustible. Seriously. One of my favorite angles is the ‘best friend’s brother’ angle, and for 3:AM Kisses, it totally worked.
I’m VERY picky about my NA, I end up not liking most of them for the over-angst-y feel to them. That or I get tired of the repetitive nature. You know, the ones where they repeatedly break up and get back together? Yeah, those. I really have to be in the mood to read them. When I’m in the mood, they are great! But 3:AM Kisses was different.
I did find it a bit silly at times, you know, like accidentally flashing him, or referring to certain body parts in the third person. But it wasn’t too silly/weird to ruin the rest of the book. The chemistry was amazing. Some reviewers even think that Baya/Bryon are too hormonal. I’m not sure I buy into that. It was a hormonal story, but I’m not convinced that it was disproportionate.
Also: DUAL POV.
I really liked Bryson’s character, even though I felt his shift from player to forever-boy a little sudden, it was pulled off way better than in other novels I’ve read.
OMG. And the way Baya’s brother finds out? That was an awesome scene. It was explosive, and it was literally the worst way her brother could have discovered them together. PERFECT.
Another element that played in beautifully, was a certain female character obsessed with Bryon. I can’t say who/why because that would spoil the ending. I thought it complimented the other components in an amazing way. Really, it all came together in a stunning equation of a novel.
It was for all these reasons that I ended up giving the book five stars. I definitely consider myself a fan of Addison Moore, and I can’t wait to read moore from her. (moore, get it? Yeah, ok, I know I’m lame.)
