Series: Sapphire Falls #1
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Genius scientist Mason Riley can cure world hunger, impress the media and piss off the Vice President of the United States all before breakfast. But he’s not sure he can get through his high school class reunion.
Then he meets the new girl in town.
Adrianne Scott loves Sapphire Falls. The sleepy little town has been the perfect place to escape her fast-paced, high stress lifestyle. Her only plans now include opening her candy shop and living a quiet, drama-free life.
Until Mason Riley bids four hundred dollars just to dance with her.
Mason sure doesn’t look—or kiss—like a genius scientist geek. In fact, he makes Adrianne’s heart pound like nothing she’s ever experienced. Passion like this with a guy who travels the world and parties at the White House should probably be a red flag for a girl who wants a simple boring life.
Good thing no one falls in love in a weekend.
WARNING: read only if you don't mind some naughty words, sexy times described in great detail, humor, small town quirkiness, meddling best friends, mud in the kitchen, references to bisexuality, oh and talk about candy... and that's not a euphemism for anything... actual candy.
Sexy scientist meets sweet candymaker. Yasssss.
Thoughts on Getting Out of Hand
Awww. Mason and Adrianne were cuuuute together. He pushed all her sexy buttons and she lit him up like no other woman could. It was sweet and hot and WOW! MAKE OUT SESSION ON A CAR? BRING IT!
Yeah. This book ended up hitting the spot. Mason’s willingness to join in on the various events around town with the Sapphire Falls crowd just because he’d been asked (insert a heartfelt sniffle for his exclusion as a teen here) made me both sad and happy. Sad because he had to wait all that time to feel welcome (being a boy genius does to you in a small town makes one a bit of an outcast) and happy because he was finally getting to fit in with those he’d known before.
And Adrianne. I get why she was careful. I get why she tried to hold herself back. I really wanted to hate Hailey for what she was doing to Adrianne, but I ended up (begrudgingly) liking her. Same for Mason’s BFF Lauren. I really wanted to dislike her for throwing a wrench in the Mason/Adrianne dynamic, but I got it after a while. I still didn’t like her methods, but I understood why she was doing it and how important it was that Mason continue his work.
She and Hailey did get a good dose of crazy eyes a time or two, though.
But let’s get back to Adrianne and Mason. I liked them together. I liked that she both appreciated what he did and supported him whole-heartedly. Their steamy interludes were pretty darn nice, too. Just sayin’.
I just… I don’t know. You know when you want something light and sweet and you pick a book to read that completely goes there and delivers just that? THAT.
