★ MY REVIEW ★
Wanting More by Jessica Ruddick is one of those novels that is middle of the road for me. There is nothing wrong with it, it is well written with a great plot… for me personally, however, nothing stands out that I can gush about. It has an HEA, no cliffy, can be read as a standalone and is told from a first person point of view.
You have a female authority figure. A woman who knows her mind and what she wants. But she’s always so serious and takes life that way too. If you looked at Bri’s planner, it would probably be so organized it was color-coded. As for Josh, he is on academic probation. He has no clue what he wants to do with his life and if you ask him about the future, he just wants to know when the next part is. Mind you, from just saying that, you’d assume things about these characters, but don’t! They will surprise you.
I thought both of the main characters were great and if asked, yes, I would read the rest of the books in this series happily. I liked how things unfolded between them. The chemistry felt more like a slow build between them. These two come from completely different worlds and it goes to show that opposites can attract. Also that people can change.
You do get a bit of angst in this novel, and at one point, may want to slap the characters and tell them to get their junk figured out. All in all though, 3 Stars and an enjoyable read.
