“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”

Book review: On a Tuesday by Whitney G.

On a Tuesday by Whitney G.
Series: One Week #1
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Publication Date: September 19, 2017

We met on a Tuesday.
Became best friends, then lovers, on a Tuesday.
And everything fell apart on a Tuesday… 

Charlotte Taylor has three automatic strikes in my book: 1) She hates me. She also claims that I’m a “domineering jerk with a huge, overbearing ego.” (I do have something huge. It’s not my ego, though.) 2) She takes our mandatory tutoring sessions way too seriously. 3) She’s sexy as hell…And a virgin.

At least, those were her strikes before our study sessions started lasting longer than they were supposed to. Until one innocent kiss became a hundred dirty ones, and until she became the first woman I ever fell hard for.

Our future together after graduation was supposed to be set:
Professional football for me. Law school for her.

But she left me at the end of the semester with no explanation, and then she completely disappeared from my life.

Until tonight.

We met on a Tuesday.
Became everything, then nothing, on a Tuesday.
And now it’s seven years later, on a Tuesday… 

**This is a full length second chance romance, inspired by Adele’s “When We Were Young”**

On a Tuesday is the fourth book I’ve read by Whitney G. and to say that I was highly anticipating it would be an understatement. I was so excited to get the chance to participate in a blog tour for one of her books, and a second chance romance? Yes, please. I didn’t end up loving this one quite as much as I’d expected, but it was a cute, quick read and it definitely wasn’t a bad way to spend a few hours.

Since this was an audiobook, I think the first thing I’ll address is the narration. I thought that both the male and female narrators did a great job with the book. I often find that audiobook narrators speak way too slowly (sometimes I speed it up to 2.0x so I don’t fall asleep) but I only had to speed it up a little bit here.

So, while the story was cute and the narration was good, there were a couple things that kept me from rating it five stars:

  • I felt that the book was a little short to fully develop the past and present of Charlotte and Grayson’s relationship. Since a book of 216 pages was split between two narrators and two time periods, there just wasn’t that much time for anything to happen.
  • The relationship between Charlotte and Grayson kind of came out of nowhere. One minute she’s refusing to give him her phone number and the next, she’s losing her virginity. I missed the buildup and the romancing, which is one of my favorite parts of reading a romance book.
  • I read a lot of romance, okay, but I am not used to hearing some of these lines (like “put your pussy on my face”) whispered in my ear while I’m drinking juice and petting my cat. I think I might have preferred this as a physical book.

Overall, I don’t know that I would necessarily recommend this book to anybody that isn’t already a big fan of Whitney G.
