La Revenant’s Review of
by A.J. Pine
It has been two years since Jordan had a man in her life; a problem she hopes to remedy while attending college abroad in Aberdeen, Scotland. Jordan Brooks is on a deadline, one year in Scotland for college, one year to find a man, and one year to try being a different Jordan Brooks. Things start off smashingly, while on the train to Aberdeen, she meets Griffin, he is sweet, sexy and charming and as she states “A man whore with a heart.” (If Only, A.J. Pine, 2014).
She also meets Noah who is irresistible (he kisses her while trapped outside the train’s loo), drool worthy gorgeous, and witty, only problem is he has a girlfriend *le sigh. So there is boy drama, who should she chose for her fling? Griffin who is available or Noah who is definitely unavailable. Decisions, decisions.
I read this book over the course of two evenings and I felt that it flowed smoothly, the relationships were relatable to real life, the dialogue was fun to read and the characters were well developed. I adored the fact that Jordan was a literary lover who quotes The Great Gatsby.
“I’m suddenly aware that my lack of success in the male/female relationship department might have something to do with my preference for boys made from words.” (Jordan, If Only, A.J. Pine, 2014)
