In high school, they’d burned fast and hot. Now is their chance to find out if the sparks that linger will ignite a whole new flame.
The only thing Darcy Miller ever wanted more than gorgeous troublemaker Griffin Strong was to shake off the dust of small-town Revival, Illinois, and head to the big city—even if she had to leave him behind. Ten years later, Darcy is the ultimate New Yorker, writing a sex blog and living on designer cocktails and the pulse of urban life. That is, until she hears that Revival plans to seize her mother’s house right after the holidays, thanks to the new mayor—who is none other than Darcy’s ex…
Griffin couldn’t have asked for a more dangerous Christmas gift. Curvy, sassy Darcy is every bit as delectable as the wild child she was in high school—and just as determined to stir up problems. But Griffin learned long ago to straighten up and fly right in order to make changes in the town he loves. Keeping his reputation wholesome is a big part of that. If only Darcy didn’t make him want to take his place on the naughty list with her, right under the mistletoe…
4 out of 5 stars
She's My Kind of Girl is part of Jennifer Dawson's "Something New" series but each book can be read as a standalone with no cliffhanger and a HEA. This is only the second book in the series that I have read, but I still really enjoyed it. Although I do have to admit that I think I liked the other one (The Name of the Game, #3) maybe just a teeny bit better. This one is a very quick read at a novella length so I read it all in one sitting.
Darcy is an award-winning author and blogger living in New York City. When her mom calls her to come down to her old hometown to help save her house she is less than pleased. She is even less happy to find out that her first love is now the town mayor and is the one responsible for her mother losing her house.
Griffin is very much the reformed bad boy. When he and Darcy were dating they drove the town's people crazy with their shenanigans, but once his mom got sick and he had to look out for his younger brothers he decided to grow up a bit. Now he is very involved in making the town succeed and become a better place for everyone.
I really loved how Darcy said pretty much anything that was one her mind and wasn't at all afraid to let you know how she felt about something. There was definitely a ton of chemistry between the two of them, but I guess you could say this one is more of a slow burn romance. It takes a while before they are finally "together".
