Overview

*18+ Due to sexual content and language inculding casual sex and flawed characters. (New Adult)

Twenty-one year old Grayson Alexander finally breaks away from an abusive relationship and finds herself free for the first time in three years.

Determined to enjoy her new-found freedom, Grayson is intent on sticking with 'no strings attached' relationships—one-night stands, and steamy sex.

But she didn't plan on Derrick.

Her attraction to the sexy man in uniform quickly turns into an unhealthy relationship. They both try to resist the pull, but neither can stay away.

When tragedy strikes, Grayson realizes it's now or never—walk away or make it work.

    Why on earth would anyone think this was love?

    I'll be deleting this book as soon as I write this. Gray and Derrick do deserve each other, that's the nicest thing I can say.

    A girl with brass

    Grayson does things that some of us just think about and I enjoyed reading every minute of it. I loved the twist and turns and not really knowing how it's going to end.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I can not tell you how much I absolutely loved reading this book. I am normally a quick reader especially if I like what I am reading but I cannot believe how quickly I went through this book. Now or Never is fantastic, amazing, somewhat gritty read, that you absolutely will not be able to put down. I don't even know where to start with my review because there are just so many things to say.

    Grayson is engaged to Josh a total absolute slimy douchebag, and I mean that very literally. My heart broke and raced for Grayson because she has been living a lie and suffering untold amount of pain all because of one man. When that final stars is broken my spirits lifted for her and I found myself cheering her on, even though she was beyond scared she did what she must. Grayson has no solid plan but get away and start fresh, she ends up heading home to her family. That is where she meets Derrick (swoon), at cafe and she cannot understand the cocky man in front of her. She brushes him off and finish the trek home so that she can enjoy the peace and quiet she has been dying for. Her peace does not last long because her kooky fun loving twin sister Luna comes over and drags her out of the house telling her she must have a one night stand and move on from douchebag Josh.

    Grayson is the shy sister but finds that it is somewhat freeing to be able to act carefree like Luna. She begins to enjoy herself and then bam at her brothers cookout there is Derrick. Her brother is in the military and Derrick is part of his team and he tells the guys his sisters are off limits. That doesn't stop Grayson from eyeballing Derick all night long, nor does it stop her from pursuing a no strings attached relationship. However as we all know some plans don't work out the way you plan. For one Josh is still out there looking for Grayson, for two Josh and Grayson have huge trust issues and three Josh is keeping a whopper of a secret.

    There are points in the story like reall what the hell are you two thinking and like did she really do that or why the hell is she tolerating that. In the end all relationships take work and you are guessing if Grayson and Josh can get over their issues and make a true relationship form. The ending was fantastic because I wasn't 100% sure that is where it was gonna go. A.J. Did an amazing job with the secondary characters, so much so that I am totally craving another book for Luna hint hint wink wink if you read this A.J. I highly highly recommend this book to all readers that enjoy military men, some drama and some really HOT!!! Sex scenes. Do not pass this book up.

    I have received this book from the Tour Host for an honest revie

    I have received this book from the Tour Host for an honest review.




    No strings attached relationships that back fires, the main topic of this book. And proof once again that it can not work. As emotional creatures, we become attached to another no matter how much we say to ourselves we are emotional uninvolved. It is a lie that quickly twists and turn so that you are forced to deal with the emotional side. I always said that sex is great but trying to fool yourself that you can walk away after giving yourself physically is foolish, it never works, especially from a woman's perspective.
    The author did a great work in creating the characters of Grayson and Derrick, showing this truth once again. Both had emotional baggage, both ran away instead of working through it, and when they met the chemistry that they felt turned into complications, jealousy and a tug of war. Not realizing that they are playing with fire in concealing certain truths to each other. Standing at a grave they realized that they had to be honest and truthful to each other to make this work. Admitting their growing feelings as something real.




    A great story, well written as you follow their lives, the decisions they made and the emptiness it caused through out. The supporting roles of Luna as her twin sister and her brother, Ethan made the story believable and entertaining. Walking away from an abusive relationship you learn about her strength and determination not to be drawn in another relationship again. Standing up and moving forward, growing as a person in her own right. 
    Derrick although much older than Grayson was not a good friend to her, hiding truths that caused more problems. Although an excellent lover, I had to agree with Luna - Stay. Away. But after the near death incident I could connect with him as he tried to reach out and finally admit the truth.
    A wonderful contemporary romance just right for that time when you are looking for something good to read that will raise the temperature and entertain you with enough drama but not overbearing.

    This was a great story. It really showed the feelings associated

    This was a great story. It really showed the feelings associated with being in an abusive relationship. Insecurity, self doubt, low self esteem. I'm glad Gray found her way back to her normal self, though it unfortunately took sexing up different men to get there. 




    Luna and Gray were awesome twins, so different, but so in tune. I loved the family dynamic and how they didn't give her grief over disappearing after she got with Josh. 




    Derrick was one sexy soldier. I want one of those, to go please. He was complex. A true FWB that was aloof and mysterious, but there when she needed him and jealous if she was with someone else. 




    I really enjoyed this story and hope there's more of these two, and possibly a story of Luna falling in love. (hint, hint)
