Out of Her League by Jennifer Dawson
I loved these 2 characters. They felt so original to me. Tessa felt, I’m sure like a lot of us, that she wasn’t pretty/sexy/thin enough to get this tall, dark, and handsome god. Jennifer did a great job showing how Xavier slowly starts to see Tessa as more than an acquaintance and into this woman he can’t stop thinking about. It’s almost like a slow burn for the relationship/falling in love part, but boy is NOT a slow burn for the sex. Their first scene together was so good, and I loved how Tessa came out of her shell and showed Xavier how uninhibited she could be over the course of their non-relationship. They just started spending all their time together and don’t realize they’re falling in love. And the climatic love declaring… there may have been tears. ~ Marissa [5/5 stars]
A muscle in his jaw jumps. “If you want to.”
I’ve never said anything like this before, but I flutter my lashes. “With your cock in my throat.”
Laughter bubbles, unexpected from my chest and I finally manage to say, “That’s the least romantic thing I’ve ever heard.”

Look, I get it, I'm not asking for miracles. I might be a closeted hopeless romantic, but I'm also a realist. I don't need fireworks. I'm not asking for magic. Of course my date won't be Prince Charming. All I'm asking for is a pleasant night out on the worst single day of the year. That's not exactly shooting for the stars, now is it?
Apparently, it is.
Because not only am I stuck with the date from hell, but the fates don't think I've suffered enough, so why not seat me next to my secret crush. Trauma surgeon, Xavier Knight, is the most gorgeous man alive, and completely out of my league. An unobtainable, impossible dream that makes my heart pound whenever he gets close. Fantastic. Now he'll bear witness to my humiliation.
Ah, life, you really know how to kick a girl when she's down.
