My Review:
Love Shots (Love U)Love Shots by Sidonia Rose
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Kyle went through some rough experiences her freshman year in college that prevented her from attempting to date anyone until she is finished with her education. She also has three brothers who are very close to her and very over-protective. This year they have a new housemate named Nick, who is the first person to make Kyle reconsider and really think about her no dating policy. Nick is attracted to Kyle and makes it clear that he will be her friend if she insists, but would really like to be more. Kyle is still has a lot of her own stuff to work through, but despite her best efforts, she is really having a hard time saying no to Nick.

This book held my interest and attention throughout. I found Kyle a little hard to connect with because it was difficult for me to understand her perception of things. She is pretty naive, and it was hard for me to figure out why she was still unable to move forward from the issues that she struggled with several years ago. It seemed like she had a pretty strong support system in her family and had gone through some therapy, yet she still didn't seem to have a strong sense of herself or insight into the behaviors of herself or others. That said, I still really wanted things to get better for her and for her to be able to find some happiness and be able to enjoy a relationship that she desired.

Nick seems like a pretty swell guy. Attractive, attentive, patient, and kind. He made his intentions and desires clear, while respecting that Kyle was going to need more time and patience than someone else might. The chemistry between the two of them was pretty great when they did connect, and I was really hoping that both of them would be able to make things work.

I was not prepared for this book to take a totally mysterious turn and leave me hanging, even though I definitely felt like there was a lot I didn't fully understand about nearly every character. Some of the dialogue was a little bit stiff and a little choppy at times, but overall I enjoyed the story. I will be looking forward to reading the next book in the series and finding out what happens next. 3.5 stars
