This novella is the perfect read for a rainy, cold afternoon. It's a super quick and entertaining read and something that can be finished in one sitting. It is super fun and fairly low angst! We were ready for it!
The premise--Gia wants to have just one...ONE night of hot, lusty, unforgettable sex before she grows old and settles down but has never acted on it. Her best friends concoct a plan to help her live out her fantasy...the one catch? Gia wants this one night to be with a super-hot co-worker, Luke, and there is a no dating policy at her company..plus she's terrified of being laughed out of town. None of this stops her besties from putting the plan into play and one killer make over and name change later, and Gia finds herself living out her fantasy.
I thought her plan was pretty out there and funny, and almost felt bad for her that it worked! Because he says such a man thing like "I would definitely remember you" but yet, he doesn't. That would suck...coming from your every fantasy. But that fact that it helps her become more confident and feel sexy about herself is awesome and I hoped that she would find a way to meet in the middle with that version and the version that she saw herself as!
After one hot fantasy filled night and Gia is thunderstruck with the reality that Luke may figure out who she is and that freaks her out (along with the actual feelings she finds herself feeling!), so she flees. Of course, the forces of nature work against her and she has to figure out how to navigate the suddenly uncomfortable working conditions around Luke and potentially job ending waters she now finds herself in. Will he figure it out and bust her? Can they pick up where they left off? Hmmmm.
Hhhmmmmm indeed. It was less detailed sexy wise than I thought it would be, but their flashbacks after the fact were pretty hot. This is a fun novella, and is definitely one that is worth reading! Fearless was as much a quick journey to finding her sexual journey as finding herself. She fights to prove herself to move up in her job, and of course as with every novella I wanted more of Gia and Luke and her group of friends! They are fun and opinionated and totally have her back! Especially Caryn.
This is a fun read...not too deep...not something that's super angsty..more like one of those that you just find yourself entertained by and don't question too much how it would all REALLY happen, you just go with it! :) Totally. I really enjoyed it!
