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 keeps himself busy with the important things, 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.

*This novella can be read as a standalone*
Laney Sawyer used to believe in love and all of the trappings that happily ever after could provide until Ryder Capwell crushed her heart. When Laney is auctioned off as a prize at the drama department fundraiser the last person she expects to trade cold hard cash for her company is Ryder. Ryder Capwell is in love with Laney Sawyer. One year ago she walked out of his life and took the light of his world right along with her. Ryder would do anything to have another chance with Laney, including purchasing her for the evening courtesy of Whitney Briggs University, and he does just that. One thing leads to whiskey, which leads to a one-night stand. She thinks it’s revenge sex—he thinks its make-up sex.
Things can only go wrong from here.
Okay, I still don’t know what to think of this book. I mean, everything I said in the review is the truth. (By the way, I don’t exactly remember who Aubree is, maybe I’ll remember, maybe I won’t.)
And really, I’m more excited about the next books in the series than this. Maybe you won’t get the comparison but I’ll still say it:
In some sense, it’s like Fifty Shades of Grey. No, not the plot or whatever. It’s the sense of being the first book in a series. FSG was a really bad first book. Because the other books were sssoooo much better. I don’t know yet for this series but 3 AM Kisses, in my opinion is not exactly a great first book.
I can say that for now, because of one thing: The next books don’t focus on Baya. Yes. that’s basically it.
What my main problem here is the main character. Baya. I just can’t establish any connection with her. And really, she acts like a twelve year old, just like her brother thinks. Bryce is… fine, I guess?
Okay! good things or bad things first?
Good things, all right. One, I’d like to give the next books in the series a chance. ESPECIALLY THE THIRD BOOK! (Yes, I’m more excited about the other books in the series than this. I’m sorry – actually, I’m not.) Two, it was funny at times.
Now, on to my list of bad things. There were too many sex stuff than anyone would really like on a book. And this is basically: How Baya Lost Her Virginity. And not to mention how eager she was in doing the deed. Next, the characters were too perfect. Ew. Like seriously. I don’t remember the guy’s name but I remember him as some perfect view of a man. And Baya, the typical Barbie type of girl but she doesn’t know it PLUS she’s innocent! Haha.
Besides, Cole, and the ex-girlfriend – Steph, and the roommate (whatever her name is) are very unimportant. Okay, maybe Cole and Steph supposedly played something important but they were really so irrelevant.
And I hate the roommate, and really, who would name someone else’s boobs? JUST. NO. I hate the repetitive words used. Like, really. JUST. NO. When it comes down to it, the writing is pretty fair, maybe just a little bit fair. Tolerable, rather. The author could use a dictionary and a thesaurus.
The whole romance, on the other hand, was instant. I predicted it. I saw it coming. But really, it was baseless. I don’t understand Aubree, and her main significance. No.
Anyway, I already told you what this book’s name should be and that pretty much explains everything. I’ll see if I’ll read the next books. I’d say that I liked Laney and Roxy more than Baya and Bryce. The book had a potential, it was not maximized at all.
One last thing: I told you I’m more excited about the other books, and as you can see, I promoted it even, the second book is FREE!! So yeah, I have it already and it from now, it looks like it’ll be part of the books-read-in-March
