Night Owl

Night Owl - M. Pierce WTF? This freaking book ate my brain, chewed it up and spit it out. No joke. It’s 9:55am on a Tuesday I finished at 1:00am this morning. I immediately messaged JJ and I kinda freaked out on her over this book. Because, this is the kind of book that I wanted to talk about immediately, with someone that had read it too. I think she(JJ) was kind of laughing at me.

This book has been on my radar since it came out in November and it has been on my TBR list since then. I knew it was different and I was very intrigued by the different reactions to it. Some loved it, some hated it. I stopped reading reviews because, I did not want those reviews to influence my feelings towards it as I read. I did know (as does everyone) that cheating takes place. I took that into account and dove in some time on Sunday night I think and I read it every chance I got.

This book is different. In many ways I like and some I’m not sure about. The parts I’m not sure about are a personal preferences- nothing more. ;) Matthew- well, he is one hell of a character. The blurb says he has a perfect life…blah, blah, blah and I felt like nothing could be farther from the truth! He seemed to struggle to move through a day without making lists or even eating a normal, nourishing meal. But good Lord, the man had one hell of a mouth on him when it came to Hannah.

Hannah and Matt had ridiculous chemistry that was immediate and even though I kinda wanted to smack Matt a few times I really liked him. He was so edgy and yet there was a tenderness to him that I really wanted to see more of. I suspect though, that “tenderness” isn’t one of his dominant traits. Dominance is though. Holy moly, is he ever dominant! I think I found Matt ridiculously attractive and I felt like he needed a hug at the same time. Hannah recognized her need to comfort him, too.
