Too Fast by Alexia Haynes

18212921Twenty-year-old Savannah enjoys a one-time one-night stand because a real relationship would never fit into her busy schedule. Working two jobs and pursuing her degree takes all of her time. Besides, the guys she has dated haven't been much better than the random barfly.

It's a good thing Luke's body is honed by the long hours of carpentry and construction because he carries the weight of his family on his shoulders. School hasn't been an option for him since he dropped out to make the house payments his mother had failed to make. 

Luke finds what he's been longing for in a night with Savannah. She's determined to stop with a one-night stand, but he wants more. Neither can deny the perfection of their passionate interludes, but with such imperfect lives, do they have any chance for a future together? Suddenly she's losing her heart and it's all happening much too fast.

Not recommended for readers under age 18 due to language and sexual content.

Holly's Review

Holly Leffler

3.5 to 4 Stars!!

Honestly, this book was better than I expected. I hate going into books with any kind of expectations but I figured it was your basic 'one night stand turned into true love' - well it's kinda like that but really so much more!!

The beginning finds Savannah and Luke the morning after what was supposed to simply a one night stand for Savannah, since she totally has no time for a relationship and refuses to depend on a man like her mother has made a career out of!! She is a strong, independent woman who thinks that love or a relationship will take all that away!

Well she definitely wasn't expecting a man like Luke! Let me just start right of by saying I am even a totally in love with Luke!

He is this amazing man, at 20 years old he is basically working long days, raising a 15 year old sister and trying to keep his family together with a mentally ill mother in the mix! He is simply incredible and there is so much more story here that wasn't told. The secondary characters alone. Natalie, Luke's sister and Savannah's two roommates...There is more story there and I hope we eventually get to hear them.

Anyway, as you can imagine, this one night stand quickly turns to love but of course there are obstacles to be overcome. But, fear not, they are overcome and there is a HEA!!

I really enjoyed this book, this is a first for me by this author and I am sure I will read more, especially if it involves any of these characters.
