Parker Kent . . .

Deliciously good-looking

Complete and utter jerk

I made a vow—a vow to steer clear of guys like Parker. But when he shows up every Monday night at my workplace, that vow is torn to shreds. As much as I’d like, to I can’t ignore a customer.

At some point, a friendship forms. It’s not what I expected; he’s not what I expected. Those walls I put up are being torn down piece by piece, allowing Parker into my heart. Am I setting myself up for disaster, or is my Monday-night guy just the antidote my wounded heart needs?

Review

Monday Nights will never be the same…..

This was a fun relatively angst free college romance….the story focuses on Addison and Parker; initially they both seemed to be rather shallow and I did not immediately warm to them…Addison was just a little too feisty and prickly, Parker was too inconsistent in his dealings with her, and both of them blew hot and cold too frequently…… however, slowly but surely their relationship developed and I began to appreciate Addison’s strength and Parker’s yumminess and protectiveness…

There are numerous secondary characters from loyal best friends to abusive boyfriends and hateful sisters…and altogether they provided both humour and drama to the proceedings….. I particularly enjoyed the interactions between Addison and her group of close friends.. and a special mention also for Devon, Addison’s younger brother, who demonstrated so much courage….In some ways I felt there were almost too many members in the supporting cast.. at times I forgot which character was which…and more importantly I wanted to know more about each and every one of them and there simply wasn’t enough opportunity in one book to do them all justice..

This story deals with a number of challenging issues bullying, cheating and abuse; but whilst the subject matter is serious it is delivered with a light touch and therefore prevents the storyline descending into darkness… In the interests of honesty I did feel that the title of the book suggested that Monday Nights would be the main focus of the story and that was not the case… and as I mentioned previously I did not immediately fall in love with Addison and Parker…

That being said as the plot progressed I became more and more invested in his and her story and by the end was standing on the sidelines in my cheerleaders skirt, not a pretty sight I can assure you, willing them to find their HEA together…
