[Review] Own Me by Lexi Scott

Genevieve Rodriguez’s life isn't panning out the way she’s always envisioned. At all. Not only is she exactly one “D” away from getting kicked out of school, but her heart is in pieces after her long-time crush marries someone else. For Genevieve, sunny Silver Strand has never felt more dismal.

Then Adam Abramowitz, her super-cute, super-smart physics tutor—who never seems to notice even her sexiest tops—tells her his Visa is about to expire and he’s going to have to return to Israel.

Suddenly the words pop out Genevieve's mouth before she can stop them. “Marry me.”

At first, it's a joke...until it's not. Because in that brief, unexpected moment, everything changes. The rules. The boundaries. And Adam and Genevieve are about to discover what happens when you push the limits.


**ARC Supplied in exchange for an honest review** 

I got to 7% last night before I had to give in to my eyelids. Those same eyelids woke up at a stupid time this morning but I still couldn't help picking my Kindle back up, even though I should have gone back to sleep... I laid in bed with the dog and read to 30% and only moved then because I really need to do something productive with my bank holiday weekend.

This review was meant to me live by the 28th of August but due to last minute work changes I just couldn't finish the last in time to start this. I've also noticed while glancing over the promo post that this isn't book one... oh no... so that means I'm already adding these books to my kindle before I've even finished this story.

So far I'm enjoying it. I like the MC's Gen and Adam, and I'm definitely reading along hoping that one of them kisses the other again, these two have chemistry, which is amazing when you can feel that when you're only reading a book... willing them both on and hoping that they'll have a happy life, short or long... God help me though if they don't before 50%!

It didn't happen before 50% but when the sexual tension snaps, it snaps! *fans self*

This is my kind of love story. Two friends helping each other out - even if it is illegal and in the name of a green card- that turns into something true.

They've known each other years, both Jewish which is how they met. Gen is the beautiful, looks ditsy but is smart one and Adam is the geeky on the outside but freaking hot under his clothes one. What's not to love so far.

Adam doesn't want to be deported and Gen wants her freedom. Obviously that means you get married right? Right. Whirlwind bonding/engagement and the next you're married for convenience. ta-dah!

Next is the friends with benefits part - only neither one is happy still being friends but neither one admits it believing the other can do better in some way. It's not until they're interviewed by the interrogation office that things slip up. 

Gen ends up back at her parents and Adam ends up in his lab. Then suddenly things click and the truth comes out - over Sunday dinner. It's just a shame that their feelings couldn't have been spoken more romantically or as public but I guess to say what he did in front of her parents, took more guts than anything.
