The heart of "Ava Moss" by Joss Landry is Ava lusting and loving a man who she can't have. They meet early on in the book and then the journey goes from there. While this is happening, Ava is also trying to learn the ropes in a new position at work and is attempting to fit in with a team that has already bonded before her. Add a bit of mystery and betrayal, and you have "Ava Moss". I enjoyed Ava as a character. She is cute, quirky, and has a tendency to find herself in awkward situations. She adds an element of charm to Landry's story, and the reader can't help but like her. The love story, however, was another story for me. He was playing hot and cold with her through most of the book, and when he was hot it was mostly just physical need, but his cold side is mean and makes Ava feel belittled and confused. I didn't see how he could be the love interest with how poorly he treats Ava. Even their first kiss was unsettling for me when he grabs her in the middle of a fight and starts "kissing her on the lips hard while maintaining his grip even as she fussed". I'm sorry, but I'm not okay with the "fuss"ing part. It even continues to describe it as something that "started as punishment". Their relationship for me just didn't hit the mark and had too much emotional abuse. There was also a lot of bad grammar, especially at the beginning, making the sentences hard to follow at times. Also, it seemed like the writing itself was inconsistent at times. Parts were overly descriptive with flowery sentences and others were more straight forward (which I preferred). If you can get past the lack of commas (I eventually did and was able to find myself getting in to the story) and the relationship doesn't bother you, this book might be okay for you. The core of the story and Ava's interactions with her friends and coworkers are fun and interesting. There's nothing wrong with the concept of "Ava Moss", it was just some technical aspects that I couldn't get past.
