about

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A sweet and realistic New Adult Romance A sweet romance loaded with sexual tension and character growth! It wasn't totally predictable and I liked that it seemed very realistic. Unfortunately, I had a hard time connecting to Scarlet and that really dampened my reading experience. Overall, I enjoyed this book! I think people who like New Adult stories that focus more on the coming of age aspect of the genre will adore this! **I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. All opinions are my own.**

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent friends to lovers new adult romance This delightful friends to lovers romance is the story of Finn and Scarlett. When Finn rescues Scarlett from his roommate's abusive advances, he becomes a protector of sorts for her, slotting her into his life like his two sisters that's he's cared for since their parents died when he was younger and took guardianship of them. She's his roommate now, and he's gotten into the habit of vetting her dates, finding none of them are good enough for her. Scarlett can't figure out why none of the guys she's dating seem to stick and figuring it must be something about her, vows to improve her kissing technique to at least start the relationships off right. And safe, steady Finn seems like the perfect non-stressful choice. But once they've had a taste of what could be there is no going back. Can they find a way to keep their friendship intact while moving into a deeper emotional relationship? I really enjoyed this story! For a new adult romance, I was pleasantly surprised that the angst level was kept to a minimum. Though Finn's parents died young, the grief of that event isn't expounded upon in detail, and more treated like it's a fact of life that they just have to deal with. Of course it has shaped Finn's character to be a parental figure for his sisters, and causes him some stress in worrying about their future. But I didn't find it overly emotional. Scarlett's upbringing is definitely out of the norm, with hippie like parents who never settled for long in one place, and as a result she finds the security of living with Finn to be exactly what she needs to steady her life and their friendship as a result is rock solid. They've never entertained anything different in their relationship - until Scarlett's kissing practice request throws everything into disarray. Because suddenly there is a long buried chemistry between them that rushes to the surface and changes everything. I loved how they started to explore this new side to their relationship, and their eventual love scenes are steamy and emotional. It was interesting to see their thought processes as they started to realize what they had been missing, and having the dual points of view made for a realistic take on their relationship. The conflicts that come up as a result of the changes create some tense and emotional moments, and I really felt for Scarlett as she struggled with her views of what her future should be versus what she really wanted. There were a few tears shed as a result, but the ending was sweetly satisfying. Overall it was a really enjoyable and entertaining story. 4.5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome An awesome read that I absolutely loved!! Adored the characters, Finn and his geeky personality is the best. The writing and pace of the story made this one very enjoyable. Scarlett Logan has been in a bit of a dry spell. Seems she can't past the first date kiss good night. Not understanding why she turns to her best friend and roommate, Finn McKenzie for help. She's convinced it must be her kissing technique so who else to help her fix it but her best friend? Problem is once that first kiss happens their relationship seems to take a turn. While they both try and fight it not wanting to lose what they have, can you ever really forget the most memorable kiss of your life?? This is one I definitely recommend to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In a class all it's own. In all the time that I have read romances never have I read a book like The Finn Factor. Using mathematics and calculations to equate love. The concept is unique and over the top. Yet it works. Scarlett feels safe when she can logically figure things out. So she is sticking with what she knows. On the other hand it would help if she had all the facts. Enter Finn. The Finn Factor is an enchanting look at love, friendship and figuring things out. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
