"Now or Never"

By: A.J. Bennett
Book Description:

Twenty-one year old Grayson Alexander finally breaks away from an abusive relationship and finds herself free for the first time in three years.

Determined to enjoy her new-found freedom, Grayson is intent on sticking with 'no strings attached' relationships—one-night stands, and steamy sex.

But she didn't plan on Derrick.

Her attraction to the sexy man in uniform quickly turns into an unhealthy relationship. They both try to resist the pull, but neither can stay away.

When tragedy strikes, Grayson realizes it's now or never—walk away or make it work.

Main Characters 

I have to say I really enjoyed Grayson and Derrick. True they are flawed, but aren't we all? I was really rooting for Grayson to get out of the abusive relations with Josh. I wasn't really sure what to expect once she started going out with her sister Luna. (Who I love by the way and hope to hear more about her. Cough Cough Luna spin-off?) Grayson was trying to find herself and didn't always make the best decisions. Including unprotected sex. But I think if we were honest most of us have done things we've regretted in the morning. 

Derrick what to say about him? Definitely sexy but also very hard to read. I loved the chemistry between the two of them. Both trying to resist the pull but always ending up together. There was a lot of head games and hiding their true feelings. The storyline had me guessing the whole time. I could understand Derrick's hesitation in jumping in with two feet. There were times I'd like to strangle him and then he would do or say something that had me back on his side. 

Story Line

Now or Never is different and that's what I liked the best about it. The characters were not perfect and even though the story was wrapped up at the end it still left you wondering how they would be doing down the line. The emotions were real and the relationship was raw. Most books you read you think great story but not reality. Now or Never is realistic which is awesome. 


I would give this book full five stars. Because of the range of emotions the author pulled from me while I read. I finished this book in one setting and was left wanting more. A.J. Bennett is an author to watch. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

P.S. Keep a tissue box near by.
