Book Blast ~ Law by Jess Buffett ~ (Review, Excerpt + Giveaway)

Book Blast ~ Law by Jess Buffett ~ (Review, Excerpt + Giveaway)
Author Name: Jess Buffett
Book Name: Law
Release Date: February 29, 2016



Being in the internationally successful boy-band Right Time had been everything I had ever wanted and more. Well, except for one thing, or should I say one person? But I had long ago acknowledged that I couldn’t have both the life and the person and I should be happy with what I had. That worked until he showed up in my life again. And then nothing made sense. 


For years I had pretended I didn’t care. Ignoring my feelings had become second nature to me. That was until my niece begged me to take her to see her favorite boy-band, Right Time, for her birthday, and I came face to face with him. In all fairness, she had no idea the can of worms she’d be opening. And to tell the truth, neither did I.

“OMG. He knows your name, Uncle Byron?”
Byron flushed, glancing down at his niece before he flicked his gaze back to mine. “Ah … yeah, Emma, I do.”
The girl began to ramble while her friends stared on in awe. “How? Why? When did you become so cool?”
“Hey, I’ve always been cool.” I chuckled at Byron’s offended expression, grateful that he was momentarily distracted. The man’s gaze had always left him feeling open and exposed.
“Well, I mean sure, you are the cool Uncle Byron who bought my friends and me these really awesome tickets, but this…”
“But this is like a whole new hemisphere of awesomeness,” another one of the young girls finished, almost breathless in her shock.
I had honestly never felt so self-conscious before that moment. Not because of the girls. As shallow as it sounded, I was used to the lust filled expressions on women’s faces of varying age groups. Byron was another story. I wondered what he must be thinking, of me, of the situation. Even after all these years the man still had it in him to make me second guess myself. A nervous tension I felt only in his presence. It was ridiculous. I was ridiculous.

On the last day of high school, Law kisses Byron, his music teacher and the man he has a huge crush on. It doesn't go as planned, though, as Byron pushes Law away. Law, now a successful member of a boy band meets up with Byron again when Byron brings his niece and her friends to see Law's band in concert. Will they have a second chance?

This book had a good premise, and I loved the main characters. My problem was things moved too fast. Because of the kiss they share we do know they were attracted to one another, or at least that Law definitely had a thing for his music teacher. I think the story would have played out better had the author either shown us some of high school period and these feelings they had for one another, taken things a little slower or at least had the characters discuss it. The bridge between high school and their next meeting to make connection between the characters feel believable was missing.

This was not a bad story it just needed to slow down and it needed more. It was still an enjoyable read. Interesting and a little steamy.
