[Book Review] Good Intentions by S. L. Scott

Good Intentions
S. L. Scott
Two words sum up my summer in paradise: Evan Ashford.
I have a life back home I must return to, though my heart battles this reality. What started as a carefree summer fling has become so much more. Evan has become so much more. He’s become everything. Cupping his face, I stare into his deep blue eyes, wanting to lose myself once more… needing to know he feels this too.
Although our connection won’t stop the summer’s end from rushing toward us or silence the demons Evan battles, I have faith our love can overcome the obstacles that will undoubtedly arise from us choosing to be together. I still worry… Will our good intentions be good enough? But I’m all in, willing to take the risk, knowing he can destroy my heart if I’m wrong.

*ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*
“I want you. I always fucking want you and it scares the shit out of me. I don’t want to disappoint you like I have everyone else.”
Good Intentions continues with Evan and Mallory’s story where they start spending more time together. With summer fling, it seems unbelievable how close they have gotten and the feelings that they have for each other seem too true to be real. With both of them having many insecurities, they try to work a relationship in which both of them can trust each other. Life is not always easy in paradise and there will be many times when their love and commitment will be questioned and pushed to it’s limits.

The chemistry in this book was incredible and you can definitely feel the tension between Mallory and Evan. The author really knows how to write some hot and steamy scenes while still making it very personal and emotional. There were a lot of times when I would question if they would stay together and really wished that Mallory might have met someone else. But Evan was a really hot character that made me completely fall in love with his charm and care-free attitude.

Enjoyable, fast read for all the NA/Romance/Comtemporary fans that love a hot summer book for their lonely nights. A definite must-read!
