Andi now lives by a set of rules. The game? Sex with a new pawn every weekend. Every Friday, she sets her sight on a new sexy, successful man to play along—no strings attached, please. When Monday rolls around, she kicks them to the curb and moves on. It has helped her get through the pain of her past—that is, until she meets Jackson.
The mysterious Jackson is excited to play her game. He too has had his heart broken in the past and isn’t looking for a repeat. Eventually, hearts get involved and Andi wonders if the game is still worth playing.
Will she look for a new pawn or will she break the rules with Jackson?
The positive side: Andi is a modern woman who assumes her sexuality and lives well going commando. She doesn't wear panties at the office and know how to please her boss...
She acts like a man playing with her sexuality by her own rules. Again, the inequality of treatment between men and women is blatantly unfair. Andi is less well perceived that Jackson who did exactly the same thing...
The only thing that made me literally go berserk is Jackson's sentence after a single night spent with Andi: "Shhh, baby. I'm clean. Are you on the pill?"
And the girls is such a horny moron that she agrees
There, I found the woman acceptance to be an enormity. I even confess being shocked! A book on woman taking her sexuality into her owns hands can be interesting but only if she played it safe. For me it was a huge mistake that reduce immediately my reading pleasure.
Beyond this misstep, I liked the flashbacks that intersect into the narrative. This gives a better understanding of the adversities the main characters have experienced.
Surprisingly, despite all my criticisms, the novel has piqued my interest and made me turn the pages. The story is well written, lively and the ending is great. Jackson's past is a real surprise. I like to be caught off guard by an author and then the final revelations were very well put!
I also liked the wounded souls of the characters. They are so fucked up that their defense mechanisms are strange. This gives the material and reality of the story.
As for the secondary characters, they are funny, touching and full of strange behavior... It makes you want to know more about them in future stories.
