Review ~ Her Best Shot (Hot & Nerdy #1) by Shannyn Schroeder

Her Best Shot (Hot & Nerdy, #1)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: September 29th 2014

Publisher: eKennsington

With college graduation looming, three childhood friends vow to make spring break their last blast of pure fun. But at least one of them didn’t count on such incredible heat… 

Layla Sharpe is definitely more math ninja than bikini babe, and her future has been calculated with razor precision. Convinced to let loose over spring break, Layla is finally ready to party—until her car breaks down halfway to her destination, leaving her stranded in Georgia with a mouthwateringly hot pool shark. She knows more than enough about angles to learn the game, but this week she wants him to appreciate her curves… 

Phin Marks has never met a girl like Layla. She’s more Star Wars geek than seductress, and when he offers her a place to stay while her car is in the shop, he’s counting on the attraction between them to set the nights ablaze, no strings attached. But every moment he spends with Layla makes it harder to let her go. Can he persuade her to gamble in the most dangerous way possible…on forever?

My Opinion

This was an enjoyable, quick read that put a smile on my face. Being a novella things did move at a fast-pace and although I felt the insta-love was a a bit too much too quickly, I still found myself caring and feeling for the characters. I would have liked more of a slow build than just jumping straight into sex but having written novellas myself I understand the restrictions and it didn't make it any less enjoyable as the scenes were hot.

I liked how the characters interacted and bonded. They had a playful, witty side which I love. I also liked the pool aspect. I didn't expect it to be continued throughout the book but I'm glad it was.

It's a shame the book ended so quickly. My iPod still showed I had 20% remaining but it was just an extract of the next book. I did feel it came to an end all of a sudden and would definitely like more of these characters as there was certain background information that wasn't fully developed and had only just been introduced.

Overall though, this was an enjoyable read that was perfect with the summer weather here in the UK. It made me smile and I liked the characters the whole way through.
