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
Addison Moore has made me a fan with 3:AM Kisses. If you haven’t read her, I highly suggest you give this book a try. It was funny, sexy, sweet, romantic, and even had a touch or two of scary! Right away, like as soon as the prologue, I like Addison Moore’s voice. Through the book her style of writing is very comfortable and playful. I can’t even count how many times I smiled or actually laughed out loud.
Baya is a freshman at Whitney Briggs college. First thing when she arrives on campus, she is exposed to Bryson Edwards. I really loved Baya. This girl was freaking hilarious. Love glove, kitty, penis pocket (a favorite of mine!), squeeze box, ditch, Furby, and yes, even vagina. These are just some of the names Baya calls hers (and others’) lady bits. See, when she gets to good ol college, it’s like there is sex everywhere. Her roommate, her brother, her new friends. Everyone is having sex. It definitely lent itself to some really funny situations and terrific one liners. And beyond that, Baya proved herself to be a loveable character. She’s trying to show her brother, Cole, that she isn’t a child. And when she meets Bryson, well, it’s not long before she is falling for him.
And better yet, Bryson is falling for her, too. Oh lord, I loved this guy. Bryson has some secret through most of the book, and it has been tearing him apart for years. There are a couple people at school who have known Bryson forever, but no one is telling Baya. But it doesn’t matter, because Bryson is giving his heart to Baya, and I love how open and honest he is about that with her. He doesn’t play games or string her along, or play a game of hot potato with his heart. He wants her. He cares for her. He tells her. There were some points during his point of view that I felt got a little repetitive when he is thinking about his love for Baya. All of the “forever…” talk began to be a little bit of overkill. Sweet overkill, but hey, he’s a young man in love.
The rest of the characters in this book triggered the gambit of responses from me. There is Cole, Baya’s brother. I liked him, but man, Cole needed to take a chill pill. His over protective behavior got to be a bit much at times, but it was nice to see it come from a place of love rather than something negative. Baya’s new friends Laney and Roxy were seriously awesome. I think everyone should have a Laney and Roxy in their lives. Aubree is a she-bitch wolf, and I didn’t like her conniving ass at all. And there were some other characters that were all very vivid, even though they played minor parts.
The storyline was pretty good. It wasn’t very dramatic for the most part, and that was a nice change for me. It was nice to just be along for the ride and fall in love. For most of the story, worrying about Cole is the biggest problem. Other things do come up, but really, for the majority of the story it was just a nice lighthearted read.
“Oh, yeah, “ he groans. “You’re so wet.”
“That’s because we were in the hot tub, “ I whisper through a smile.
A dull laugh pumps from him. “And here I thought you were ready for me.”
Read for him. Right. Crap. I’m such a moron. Who the hell did I think I was sleeping with Bryson without at least brushing up on my sexual terminology? I’m beyond ridiculous to think I was just going to casually pick things up as we went along. I should have logged hours watching porn instead of reading Yates for Lit. It’s like I’ve got no fucking priorities. I should have read the Karma Sutra – shoved in Cole’s face when he asked what I was reading. How do you like my book boyfriend now, bitch?
Let’s talk about some heat? Kisses, oh my goodness, the kisses. Bryson and Baya could definitely tear it up when it comes to the kisses. I’m a sucker for a good kiss, and this book did not let me down at all. And when it came time for the sexy naked time, I definitely was not let down there either. There were some seriously sexy scenes in this book.
So do I recommend this book? Yep, I sure do. It was fun and funny. It was sexy. 3:AM Kisses was just really enjoyable!
(Baya’s Point of View, with Bryson.)
“Okay!” I scream through my laughter. “You win.” I fall back on the boulder and he rolls on top of me, refining his torment technique.
“Say Bryson’s the best.” He slows his movements while I try to catch my breath.
“Bryson’s the best.” It gurgles from my throat with laughter. “You’re great, and I’m not.” My hands tracks down low on his waist and he catches me by the wrists.
“I think you’re pretty great, Baya,” he whispers just over my lips. Our eyes lock with a magnetic pull. I place my hand over the back of his neck and rise to meet his lips.
