Review: The Finn Factor by Rachel Bailey

The Finn Factor
Release Date: 09/28/15
Entangled Embrace

Summary from Goodreads:

A new adult romance from Entangled's Embrace imprint...

Sometimes all a girl needs is a little practice...

It's been twelve months, three days, and eleven hours since accounting student Scarlett Logan made it past a second date. A pitcher of mojitos in hand, she employs her supreme graphing skills to narrow things down to one horrifying explanation. Kissing. Clearly someone needs to teach her how to kiss properly. Like, say, her best friend and roomie, Finn Mackenzie. He's safe, he's convenient, and yeah, maybe just a little gorgeous.

Finn knows exactly why Scarlett's boyfriends are disappearing quickly. Him. Not a single guy she's brought home is nearly good enough. And he'll be damned if he lets some loser give her "kissing lessons." No. He'll do the honors, thank you very much. The moment their lips touch, though, everything turns upside down. But Scarlett deserves the one thing Finn can't give her. And if he doesn't put an end to the sexy little shenanigans, he'll teach Scarlett the hardest lesson of all...heartbreak.


**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**

Scarlett Logan has herself in a dry spell so she maps out her dates to find out what is wrong. At first she believes it is her kissing because they never come back after the kiss and she almost never makes it past the first date. Little does she know that it is actually her sexy roommate Finn. She wanted kissing lessons and Finn is right there to step in and offer. It wasn’t supposed to be more than one little kiss, but that kiss changed everything. Both Finn and Scarlett tried to get the one little kiss out of their mind but that wasn’t happening since no one else compared to the other person.

This wasn’t my favorite book by a long shot, but it also wasn’t horrible. I believe the reasoning behind me not liking it so much is because how many women have a sexy straight male roommate where they have no idea they liked one another? The only sexy man I would ever live with if I was single would be my gay best friend not some guy I wanted to bang every two seconds. Another thing that bothered me is that the both of them “didn’t realize” they liked one another more than friends. Really… Finn’s little sister, Amelia, needed to point that out to the both of them? Maybe they really were both just clueless, but I am the type of person that would question everything Finn does. Scarlett is the only other person Finn has ever opened up to besides his two sisters so why would she think nothing of that? 

Other than that, I enjoyed the book. The writing was good and I was into the book. Just not crazy over the story line. I would like to read another book in the future by Rachel Bailey, but I really do hope that I like the story line is a little better than this one. 

Rating: 3.5/5

About the Author
As a teenager, I was a voracious reader of science fiction, until one day when I was 16, I saw Pride and Prejudice on television. The old version with Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson. I adored it. I’d seen it in the TV guide and, since I had a crush on Laurence Olivier after seeing him in Henry V, I’d taped it.
I watched that tape so often I can still recite most of the dialogue by heart. I sought out the book, devoured it, then found every other Jane Austen book and read and reread them frequently. I only discovered romance as a genre as an adult. Imagine my delight when I first read modern versions of Jane Austen!

Now I read most subgenres of romance, from category to historical to romantic comedy. Such a banquet!
