Review: She’s My Kind of Girl (Something New #4.5) by Jennifer Dawson


In high school, they’d burned fast and hot. Now is their chance to find out if the sparks that linger will ignite a whole new flame.

The only thing Darcy Miller ever wanted more than gorgeous troublemaker Griffin Strong was to shake off the dust of small-town Revival, Illinois, and head to the big city—even if she had to leave him behind. Ten years later, Darcy is the ultimate New Yorker, writing a sex blog and living on designer cocktails and the pulse of urban life. That is, until she hears that Revival plans to seize her mother’s house right after the holidays, thanks to the new mayor—who is none other than Darcy’s ex…

Griffin couldn’t have asked for a more dangerous Christmas gift. Curvy, sassy Darcy is every bit as delectable as the wild child she was in high school—and just as determined to stir up problems. But Griffin learned long ago to straighten up and fly right in order to make changes in the town he loves. Keeping his reputation wholesome is a big part of that. If only Darcy didn’t make him want to take his place on the naughty list with her, right under the mistletoe…

My Review

She’s My Kind of Girl is a fast-paced and easy read. I found the story-line to be really enjoyable. I loved the drama of Darcy, the bad girl, having to return home to the one that got away. On the outside it may seem like Griffin has grown up and let go of his bad boy ways, but when Darcy returns home, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Even though many years have passed, the pull between Darcy and Griffin is stronger than ever and it’s only a matter of time before these two give in to the passion that they share.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Even though it was fast paced, I thought it worked very well with this book. I fell in love with Darcy and Griffin from the moment I met them. The sparks between the two of them were undeniable. I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next.

She’s My Kind of Girl is a novella in the Something New Series, but it definitely can be read as a stand-alone. I fell in love with the characters and their town and am looking forward to going back and discovering the previous books in this series.

She’s My Kind of Girl has the perfect mix of drama, sex and romance. If you’re looking for a quick, but sexy and entertaining read, I would definitely recommend giving this one a try.
