Sometimes it takes crossing an ocean to figure out where you belong.
It's been two years since twenty-year-old Jordan had a boyfriend—which means it's been forever since she, well, you know. But now she’s off to spend her junior year in Aberdeen, Scotland, the perfect place to stop waiting for Mr. Right and just enjoy Mr. Right Now.
Sexy, sweet (and possible player) Griffin may be her perfect, no-strings-attached match. He’s fun, gorgeous, and makes her laugh. So why can’t she stop thinking about Noah who, minutes after being trapped together outside the train’s loo, kisses Jordan like she’s never been kissed before? Never mind his impossible blue eyes, his weathered, annotated copy of The Great Gatsby (total English-major porn)…oh, and his girlfriend.
Jordan knows everything this year has an expiration date. Aberdeen is supposed to be about fun rather than waiting for life to happen. But E. M. Forster, Shakespeare, and mistletoe on Valentine’s Day make her reconsider what love is and how far she’s willing to go for the right guy
Holy HAWT Scotts!!
There is something about that accent that drives me NUTS! I've always had a thing for Scottish guys, and let me tell you Noah & Griffin put the cherry on that dream sundae!
Even though Jordan may be having some dude drama, I can say completely guilt free that I enjoyed it all. It was like yumminess, wrapped in sexy. But if you're the kind of person who wants emotional gratification right away, or obvious happy endings, If Only will not be giving that to you. You'll be dragged through an emotional roller coaster that is well worth it!
Jordan initally struck me as the girl who was just along for the ride, I mean she vicariously was living through her roommates love life at one point....but that's not important.....like any great character she grew during her journey. Not only emotionally, but mentally. She made hard decisions, and was able to make them with her head and her heart. (That shit isn't easy)
I can't wait to read more from A.J. She is brilliant! Her writing style is absolutely on point, every character was well developed and there wasn't a single thing that didn't seem realistic. Being an author now-a-days is an extremely hard thing to do, standing out as an author is even harder....well I think that A.J. has done that!
About A.J. Pine
AJ writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend those hearts with a happily ever after…maybe. The first book she wrote was YA, but now she’s two-timing her first love Pine4BWwith NA. She’s always in the middle of reading two to three books, adores online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes), and she still loves vampires, whether it’s Eric Northman or the Salvatore brothers. When she’s not writing, AJ is sneaking off to her day job as a high school English teacher or hanging with her husband and kids in the Chicago burbs.
AJ’s debut NA novel, IF ONLY, releases with Entangled’s Embrace line on March 24!
