Blog Tour - FOR NOW - Review Stop


Welcome back to my blog. The blog tour for Chelsea Cameron's FOR NOW has begun. My tour stop includes a review which you can read in just a bit. Don't forget a giveaway is also underway.


ABOUT FOR NOW:

Two people. A one-night stand. What could go wrong?

Javier Cruz definitely isn’t relationship material, but that suits Hazel Gellar just fine. She’s not a relationship girl and doesn’t plan on ever being one.

But after a mind-blowing, panty-ripping, bed-breaking night, she knows once isn’t going to be enough. Fortunately, Javi feels the same way. Soon, what started as just one night turns into a lot of nights, and Hazel doesn’t know what to do.


Will she and Javi make the choice to be together for longer than just right NOW?

I got what I wanted from this book when  I signed up for it. This is the companion novel to Chelsea Cameron's  For Real  in her Rules of Love series and I am glad this can be read as a standalone.

I was hoping for this instalment to be fun and make me chuckle or right out laugh my bum off. It didn't make me laugh my bum off but it had its fun, chuckle worthy moments. It reminded me at many a times of JLA's Wait For You, I hope I am not reminded of the wrong book but I really was reminded of JLA's characters and setting earlier in the book what with Javi being a good cook and all that.

At first, I was weary of the banter between the two as it made me roll my eyes as we have already seen this but then eventually I started liking it. Some parts were really enjoyable. After Javi and Hazel spent that night together. (And guys, it was a good night. It really wasn't what you are thinking it was. You should read to find out what kind of night it was. :D)

After that night, I was kind of irritated with Hazel. I was like: oh girl, just go with the flow. But I understand her point of view as well as it was confusing. Anyway, I found Hazel, at times, very entertaining. And at times, I found her annoying. Tehehe. As for Javi, hmmm, he was broody and shown as quite the smexy badass not-nerd-but-nerd kinda guy. Lol. But I did kinda feel he was a mash of all those beloved stereotypes out there. So, I think one or the other people will fall for this character. :p

Also, Javi's shutting-out people habit would get a bit annoying and a little too much. And I don't think I found his backstory that truthful and real. It just felt like the author wanted to make him look more I dunno-- something felt off. It was unexpected but I don't think it was good unexpected for me.

As for name choices, I don't think I liked them. Hazel's name kept reminding me of TFiOS. Lol. Whereas Javier's (Javi) name choosing felt wanting that desired hot guy vibe to be on the get-go if you know what I mean. XP Lol, sorry. I am weird. Anyway, I liked Hazel more.

Anyway, I liked this book and enjoyed those chuckle-worthy and some sweet moments.
