~Review: Attraction (Irresistible 0.5) by Senayda Pierre~

It only takes a moment to feel that spark of attraction…

Carina Lobos is a freshman in college. Jaxon Wright is a junior, captain of the rowing team, and can have any girl he wants. From the moment he lays eyes on her, Jaxon can’t deny the attraction between them. 

Attraction is the prequel novella to the new Irresistible series. 

This is the story of how Carina met her roommate and best friend Desirae and her on again, off again lover, Jaxon Wright.

Overall Rating:  3.5 Rockin’ ★★★☆

Attraction written by Senayda Pierre, began with the bond between a brother and sister in a comedic fashion regarding life not always going the way we choose. It implored a rag to riches mentality when well to do Carina meets her trust fund college roommate Desirae at her undesired college of acceptance.

The investment the reader makes in the well thought out Characters is not in vain.  The author conveys the developing relationships of the new friends, and the newness of recently engaged sexually active buddies.  However, as with all immature choices that do not have the advantage of experience, the heated relationship is destined for confusion.  Although filled with sexuality, Senayda manages to aptly convey college life and rites of passage for emerging young adults.

Hero: 3.5 stars
Heroine: 3.5 stars
Plot: 3.5 stars
Steam Level: 3 stars
Cliffhanger:  Yes

Would I recommend this book: Yes. This is a great young adult book that addresses college lifestyles and experiences. This is the prequel to the author's new series, Irresistible.  

Would I recommend this author: Yes.  Ms. Pierre understands her subject and conveys it with the written word. Look forward to reading the follow up books.
