Last Will and Testament by Dahlia Adler | steamy NA!

By 11:00:00 , ,


Lizzie Brandt was valedictorian of her high school class, but at Radleigh University, all she's acing are partying and hooking up with the wrong guys. But all that changes when her parents are killed in a tragic accident, making her guardian to her two younger brothers. To keep them out of foster care, she'll have to fix up her image, her life, and her GPA—fast. Too bad the only person on campus she can go to for help is her humorless, pedantic Byzantine History TA, Connor Lawson, who isn't exactly Lizzie's biggest fan.

But Connor surprises her. Not only is he a great tutor, but he’s also a pretty great babysitter. And chauffeur. And listener. And he understands exactly what it’s like to be on your own before you're ready. Before long, Lizzie realizes having a responsible-adult type around has its perks... and that she'd like to do some rather irresponsible (but considerably adult) things with him as well. Good thing he's not the kind of guy who'd ever reciprocate.

Until he does.

Until they turn into far more than teacher and student.

Until the relationship that helped put their lives back together threatens everything they both have left.

First Impressions

I've been following Dahlia Adler on twitter for ages (because she is obviously very awesome), but it took me a while to get around to reading her books. I know what I was missing now!
Also the cover is gorgeous but I can't get the image to upload right now because I'm blogging on my tablet (which sucks) on the train wifi (which is marginally better). Check it out on goodreads though, it's really pretty!

My Review

The premise is that Lizzie ends up responsible for her younger brothers very suddenly, and has to straighten out her own life as a result. Juggling family and university isn't easy though - and I think that's what really resonated with me when reading this. Lizzie was trying so hard to be a parent, and it was wonderful to see her grow up, in a way - she puts her family first and gets on with things and it just makes her a genuinely likeable character, despite her party girl start.
There's so much emotional honesty to be found in this book, in these characters. They have their flaws, they may say or do stupid things, and they're wonderfully real and human. And Connor, the Byzantine history TA Lizzie gets involved with is just delicious - so there. That's another reason for you to pick up this book right now. Honestly, I read it in one go. In the middle of the night. Couldn't stop. I was in a romance/contemporary/NA mood, so Last Will and Testament was just perfect!
And did I mention the steamy scenes? No? They were steamy. Extra steaminess here if that's what you like. (Obviously I did.)

Quick Recap and Rating

Last Will and Testament is a pretty hot, addictive contemporary NA story. Dahlia's books are also really affordable for your kindle so you have no excuse!
Do you read a lot of NA? I need recommendations! (If not - what are you reading right now?)
