3:AM Kisses by Addison Moore




Baya Brighton is looking forward to her first year at Whitney Briggs University, new friends, dorm life, and finally being close to her brother again. Love is the last thing on the list, but when Baya meets her brother’s roommate she begins to have thoughts and feelings that make even her blush.

Bryson Edwards has a secret he prefers buried in the past and long forgotten. He prefers loose girls, fast cars, and long nights working at the string of bars his family owns. When his roommate’s sister shows up on the scene, she’s far too innocent and sweet for him but he can’t shake Baya out of his mind and worse, it looks like she’s seeping into his heart as well.

Baya seems determined to show her brother she’s not a little kid and equally determined to use Bryson’s body to prove her point. It’s been made pretty clear that Baya is off limits to Bryson but their undeniable sparks explode into a whole lot more than just a few 3:AM KISSES.

 

3/5

I love Moore's young adult books, but so far I have not felt the same way with her new adult books. I found this new work better than Someone To Love, but I still am not in love with them.

I did like our main character, Baya, a lot. She is full of quirk and has an original personality. I found reading about her and the ways she handled matters very fun to get lost in. I do wish that there had been more growth in her character. She was given a decent back story and brother, but we just skimmed the surface. I wish she could had more deep feelings other than how crazy she was about Bryson.

Bryson is also a great character. He is the changed bad boy. I really enjoyed the banter between Bryson and his twin brother, though there wasn't much. He could have been an amazing character, but, again, there is a lack of character development with him also. Also, when he talks to Baya about his love for her... well it's cheesy. Really cheesy. Eye rolling cheesy. 

I did find the book entertaining, and the story was fin to read, but some things just didn't do it for me and that is why I could only give it a 3 out of 5. I am going to make it short and sweet.

1. The lack of character development, like I already said. 
2. The ever so dooming world-stopping-kiss that leads to insta-love
3. The cheese factor. I found myself gagging on the cheese at points. Just too soap opera like for my taste. 

This is not one of my favorite NA books, but I feel like a lot of other people will feel the complete opposite of me. Romance is a hit or miss for me. This one ended up just being "meh" in my opinion.
