Addy And The Smart Guy (Big Girl Panties Book 3) - Carter Ashby

Addy is a prim and proper lady. She has always done things the way she was taught and never let loose or broken any rules. Her head tells her to be practical and ignore the growing feelings she has for her professor, Dr. Greyson McDaniel, but her heart is urging her to take a leap of faith. When she is presented with an opportunity to escape to a secluded cabin with Greyson, she decides to step out of her comfort zone just this once and live life on the edge. After all, what could possibly happen by breaking the rules just once? Addy and Grey are both about to find out.

I really enjoyed Addy's character. She reminded me of myself in some aspects, especially when she misses out on opportunities due to her lack of courage to go against the rules or do something uncomfortable. This made her easy to relate to and I found myself encouraging her to embrace the unknown. The sexual chemistry between Addy and Grey was super steamy! They had no problems in that department and yet they both found themselves struggling with wanting more. Addy wants some sort of commitment and Grey isn't the commitment type. As their affair is brought to light, they are tested in several ways and they grow; both as individuals and as a couple.

I liked the author's writing style and the flow of the story kept me turning the pages. I also enjoyed being introduced to Maya and Zoey, Addy's friends, as I haven't read the first two books in this series. That said, it in no way hindered me and I feel as though these books are standalone. I will be picking up the first two as I'm curious to learn more about those characters.

I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This book is for mature audiences only due to sexual content.
