RATING: 4.25 PRESTON STARS!
The run down rat-infested trailer he had shared with his alcoholic mother and three younger siblings was now only a place he visited to pay the bills and stock the pantry with food.
He no longer worried about his family starving or living without electricity. The money he made entertaining rich older women more than covered his family’s needs and his own. He had it all figured out. Except…
There was this girl.
She was as innocent as he was tainted.
Amanda Hardy wished her knees didn’t get weak when Preston walked into a room. She hated the fact her heart raced when he flashed his smile in her direction. He had a different girl in his bed every night. He was the kind of boy a smart girl ran from. So, why was she coming up with ways to get close to him? Even when it was obvious he wanted to keep her at a distance.
Maybe her heart knew something the world didn’t. Maybe Preston Drake was more than just a pretty face.
BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:
One day someone will come along and you’ll change for her.
She’ll be the one you can’t live without, and she’ll be more important than anyone else.
Preston the Gigolo and Amanda the sister of Marcus, this relationship was going to have its troubles, and it did.
I really liked Preston in Just For Now, he really grew on me. The things he does to keep his siblings fed and healthy while his mother is not worthy of the title.
Oh, the things he does with Cougars to keep himself out of the trailer, but these things are never going to be a good thing in the long run.
Amanda has been crushing on Preston, she has no idea of his extra-curricular activities neither does his close friends. Preston is keeping a big secret. I couldn’t help love him for wanting to keep Jimmy, Brent and Daisy as safe as he could manage considering.
The only thing that had me going WT!! Was something that happened near the end that was the solution to something and it felt too quick and not fleshed out considering what it was. It brought my rating down because it felt rushed and a quick fix. I would have been more endeared to this solution if the other characters involved had been brought into play much earlier giving the reader a valid reaction to this solution. It’s a pretty big gift to give, considering what it is and not one that should be weighed in a few pages.
All in all, another enjoyable read in the Sea Breeze series. I keep coming back for more. They aren’t really deep reads, but all the same enjoyable.
