TITLE - "O" Face
AUTHOR - Heather Hildenbrand
I have a confession.
I’ve never had an orgasm.
Not for lack of trying. Hell, I even experimented once in college with a girlfriend, but nothing. Nada. Zilch.
I’m pretty sure I’m broken.
That is, until Liam Porter waltzes back into my life.
Cassie Franklin is untouchable. And she wears it well.
Heir to a fortune and heart of fucking stone—I’ve never, not once in the years I’ve known her—seen her smile.
Not that I’ve lost sleep over her while I’ve been rolling in the sheets with every other beautiful girl this town has to offer. Not to mention the women I had during my tour of duty. I’m not exactly pining. Still, Cassie’s always gotten under my skin—all that cool beauty set into a cold stare.
So when her best friend begs me to find out what Cassie’s hiding, I’m more than happy to comply. In fact, this is one covert takedown I’ll actually enjoy.
So why is it that the more I learn about the real Cassie Franklin, the more positive I am—there’s only one expression I want to see grace her features: Her O Face.
And I never back down from a challenge.
“O” Face is one hella funny book. Seriously had me cracking up throughout it. This book is a wonderful story of second chances. “O” Face is a fake boyfriend book with mystery and action. I loved these types of books and I am very glad that the author did not disappoint.
The plot of this book had me from word go. Fake relationships always catch my attention. I would have to say they are my favorite types of books. This book did the genre justice. I loved the reasoning behind the fake relationship and how it started. I also love how it all played out. I think this book discusses some serious topics in a funny and relatable way.
I love Cassie. She is such a dynamic character. She is the “ice princess,” but behind that façade is a woman waiting to explore all the emotions she has been hiding her entire life. Then you add Liam into the mix. He is a solider coming back from war injured. He has adjusting to do in order to live in this world he has come back to. Will he be the one to see through Cassie’s façade?
There is some intense heat in this book. These characters have a chemistry that readers can really feel come off the pages of the book. I love the whole premise of this story because it creates and environment for these two characters to become combustible. This area of the book was not lacking.
The writing style was wonderful. The pace of the book was steady. I like how the author discussed our characters past, while relating it to the present. The characters are written really well and there is a clear progression for the book to follow. Add in the humorous parts, and I think this is the perfect book.
Overall, I loved this book. I could not get enough of it. I loved these characters and all their interactions together. This is seriously a book written specifically for me. From the characters to the plot, this book is exactly what I look for when I go to pick up books. After reading this, I had to take a couple days off from reading to fully appreciate this masterpiece.
Writing Style: 5/5
