Genre: New Adult Romance
Ah…I loved this book. The author did a great job showcasing Jo’s vulnerability and Adam’s patience and kindness towards her when others didn’t. Just a lovely read.
The story revolves around Jo, a female scientist who’s fought hard to make her mark in a male dominated field. She’s focused, and determined to be taken seriously, even if it means pushing everyone away.
Adam’s the all American boy next door who’s excited to be attending a summer science internship in Puerto Rico, even if it means leaving his on-again-off-again girlfriend back on the mainland.
The pair meet up during the summer science program and for some reason, the tough as nails, androgynous girl intrigues Adam. He can’t help but try to figure out who she is and why she’s so closed off from the world.
The story weaves though their summer together as Adam tears down Jo’s walls one at a time until she’s left vulnerable and unsure of who she is anymore.
I honestly loved this story so much. Adam is patient and kind, giving Jo just enough push to get her to bend and not break. Jo is so complex and watching her bloom throughout the story was so lovely.
Well done, Ms. Grey and I can’t wait to see what other stories you have up your sleeve.
