Review of Not Until Tonight by Jessica Sankiewicz

Synopsis: "Haley has spent the last year going to the bar across the street from her apartment every day. It's the only thing that winds her down at the end of a long day at work. She gets to have a drink and talk to the gorgeous bartender, Skylar. Her little crush on him is starting to drive her crazy. She wants to take their friendship to the next level but she doesn't want to compromise what they already have.

When Skylar asks Haley to pretend to be his girlfriend for one night, she doesn't hesitate to say yes. This is her chance to finally experience what it could be like, even if it's just for one night. But pretending becomes difficult when their real feelings surface and the pull is too strong to resist. And neither one of them prepared for that.

At the end of the night, will they be willing to turn a fake relationship into a real one?"

My Review: You know what I love about NA books? The fact that they take place in a stage of life where there is so much hope and excitement about the future, when you are old enough to have fun but the stresses and worries of adult life have yet to drag you down. This is a perfect example of that feeling. This is a novella so it is a little short and the storyline moves along quickly but Jessica did a great job of building up enough of a back story to support it. I loved the setting, so many of us have had that bar where it felt like home, and we spent a good amount of time in. Honestly the story brought back a lot of fun and happy memories for me. The characters were interesting though at times the sub-characters (will most likely be featured in more novellas in the series) did outshine the main characters and that was the one draw back for me. That said this is definitely a great book to pick up and relive some of those fun, carefree and reckless times in your life.
My Rating: I enjoyed this book, especially that it was a quick read but I didn't feel like I missed something or that it was too rushed.  I give it a rating of Four Paws.
