A new adult romance from Entangled's Embrace imprint..

Sometimes all a girl needs is a little practice...

It's been twelve months, three days, and eleven hours since accounting student Scarlett Logan made it past a second date. A pitcher of mojitos in hand, she employs her supreme graphing skills to narrow things down to one horrifying explanation. Kissing. Clearly someone needs to teach her how to kiss properly. Like, say, her best friend and roomie, Finn Mackenzie. He's safe, he's convenient, and yeah, maybe just a little gorgeous.

Finn knows exactly why Scarlett's boyfriends are disappearing quickly. Him. Not a single guy she's brought home is nearly good enough. And he'll be damned if he lets some loser give her "kissing lessons." No. He'll do the honors, thank you very much. The moment their lips touch, though, everything turns upside down. But Scarlett deserves the one thing Finn can't give her. And if he doesn't put an end to the sexy little shenanigans, he'll teach Scarlett the hardest lesson of all...heartbreak.

I received a copy of this book, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating!

The cuteness of this book is almost too much! From the second I pulled it up on my Kindle I was completely hooked on The Finn Factor. I was glad I had lots of breathing room reading wise because I took my time and truly savored this one and stretched it out as far as I could. Even then I wasn't ready to say goodbye to these characters and let it end.

What I loved about both Finn and Scarlett's characters was the fact that you have two people who are the types that turn heads when they walk into a room, both of them, and yet they also each had this majorly nerdy/quirky side. Finn with his obsession with history, more specifically musical instruments from Mesopotamia. I mean seriously, how do you even get into something like that? Love it. And then there's Scarlett with her numbers and spreadsheets and math equations. Their quirkiness was completely adorable and made them even more fun then they already were.

One thing that you come to realize right away was the very special and sweet bond and friendship between these two. For different reasons they both need that friendship in their lives. So even I was nervous when the kissing lessons first started happening. I mean I couldn't imagine this book not ending happily, but still it was the thought that, forever how long, things would turn upside down for them and I didn't want it to happen.

On the other hand, the other half of me desperately needed them to be together. From that very first kissing lesson, which left me nearly breathless as well, I just couldn't imagine them not being together. The chemistry was insane and I wish that this had been a movie at times so I could keep rewinding and watching that first kiss happen over and over. H-o-t.

And every character you meet is just so awesome. Finn's sisters, Billie and Amelia and Scarlett's hippie, nomadic parents. They're all so much fun and add both a sweetness and a bit of comic relief.

As you can already tell, I adored this book. It was everything I needed in the moment from a book. I haven't read anything by Rachel Bailey before, but that is definitely going to change now. I can't wait to get my hands on more. 

Thanks to Entangled Publishing for the opportunity to read and review this book!
