Entangled Embrace

Summary from Goodreads:

A new adult romance from Entangled’s Embrace imprint…Sometimes all a girl needs is a little practice…It’s been twelve months, three days, and eleven hours since accounting student Scarlett Logan made it past a second date. A pitcher of mojitos in hand, she employs her supreme graphing skills to narrow things down to one horrifying explanation. Kissing. Clearly someone needs to teach her how to kiss properly. Like, say, her best friend and roomie, Finn Mackenzie. He’s safe, he’s convenient, and yeah, maybe just a little gorgeous. Finn knows exactly why Scarlett’s boyfriends are disappearing quickly. Him. Not a single guy she’s brought home is nearly good enough. And he’ll be damned if he lets some loser give her “kissing lessons.” No. He’ll do the honors, thank you very much. The moment their lips touch, though, everything turns upside down. But Scarlett deserves the one thing Finn can’t give her. And if he doesn’t put an end to the sexy little shenanigans, he’ll teach Scarlett the hardest lesson of all…heartbreak.

As a teenager, I was a voracious reader of science fiction, until one day when I was 16, I saw Pride and Prejudice on television. The old version with Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson. I adored it. I’d seen it in the TV guide and, since I had a crush on Laurence Olivier after seeing him in Henry V, I’d taped it. I watched that tape so often I can still recite most of the dialogue by heart. I sought out the book, devoured it, then found every other Jane Austen book and read and reread them frequently. I only discovered romance as a genre as an adult. Imagine my delight when I first read modern versions of Jane Austen! Now I read most subgenres of romance, from category to historical to romantic comedy. Such a banquet!

TSR My Review

The Finn Factor is a light and easy read, low on angst and high on sweetness -exactly what I was looking for! Even though the blurb might sound like your typical “fell for the best friend” scenario, the characters are quirky and very charismatic which makes it stand out.

Finn is an archaeomusicologist (I didn’t even know that was a thing) who apparently only wears pale blue shirts.  He is the legal guardian for his two little sisters, who are not so little anymore but he still protects them and takes care of all the girls in his life.  This also includes Scarlett, his best friend and roommate.  He is caring and loyal and I loved the interactions between him and Scarlett.  Their relationship and everything going on around them was funny and entertaining; her hippie parents camping in the backyard, arm knitting scarves for the stray dog, Scarlett’s special relationship with the ice maker.  Like I said, they are quirky and I totally digged that. On a side note, I googled arm knitting and was baffled to discover that it’s also a real thing, I even watched a video.  Anyway, The Finn Factor is adorable and funny and will leave you with a smile on your face!

  1. Confession, I read this review thinking it was going to be about the Finn Factor series by RG Alexander (http://rgalexander.com/books/), so I was a bit disappointed that it wasn’t a new book in that series. That said, this book actually sounds REALLY GREAT! I love sweet, quirky romances with interesting characters, and this definitely fits the bill. Plus, that cover is gorgeous. Adding this to the TBR list!
