Private Message by Danielle Torella

Tess has never had sex. Believe it or not, she’s never had a decent kiss. 

The aspiring Seattle painter and photographer is still recovering from the trauma of being beaten and nearly raped at a rock show nearly three years before. So she keeps life simple: she goes to school, goes to work in a coffee shop, goes home, goes on living.

But then Ben’s naked body crashes—almost literally—through Tess’s wall against the world. 

Ben is doing his dad’s art-teacher girlfriend a favor when he agrees to pose nude for her drawing class. But what he draws is the interest of the irresistible punk-looking girl—and it’s interest he reciprocates, with interest. 

Their sexual chemistry is too much to resist. But it’s when they have their clothes on that their heat quickly slips on ice. Ben’s womanizing history is one thing, but it’s history of another kind—related to that fateful night at the rock show—that threatens to tear the young lovers apart forever.
2.75-3 Stars

- Our Hero, Ben, is a sexy, tattooed Brit ;)
- Our heroine is named Tess. Yes, I'm narcissistic that way ;)
- Adam Levine makes an appearance in the book. Yea, can't go wrong with that.

- I'm a fan of insta-love, to a degree, but something about this story felt a little off
- Tess easily forgives Ben for a misunderstanding. If it was me, I wanted more of an explanation. His was a bit lame. 
- Heroine meets a new girlfriend at a bar one night and the next thing you know they're besties. Nope. Not likely. I don't care how well u get along.
- The few twists in the story weren't all that impressive.

There were a few more minor ones, but I think I've said the biggest ones. This had sooooo much potential, too. I wish I had enjoyed it more :(
