A viral Kindle Wanting More ***4 "Judgemental" stars***This was a really good story, even though it was a little bit predicted..But i really enjoyed the ride...At the beginning it filled me with excitement and it made me laugh out loud...But then the things turned out more serious and the angst surrounded me...And then came the anger.... (God, i was so furious with Bri!!! I wanted to slap her very bad!!!) and the heartbreaking especially for Josh's behalf...But let me take the things from the beginning...Brianne was so uptight. She had plan out all of her life and she was following her goals.But she had no idea of having fun or impulsive feelings...She never did anything out of program and that was such a pity for her.She was during her master and at the same time, she was working as an academic counsellor.And there was where she met Josh... and the order in her life started to tearing down..."I could tell he was far from stupid.Lazy? Yes. But stupid? Not so much.Which made his bahevior unacceptable in my book.People who squandered their God-given talents pissed me off. Some of us had to work ourselves to the bone to get ahead."Josh was such an easygoing person. He was so open, so full of life... He was living for the moment...He was partying, he was spending time with several girls, he adored to play guitar for himself and he loved his friends...But somewhere in between all of those things, he forgot to care about his academic progress...After three years in college, he didn't stabilized yet on a major. He was just switching directions all the time as he hadn't figured out what he wanted to do with his life.He just knew that he didn't want to return to his home...His meeting with Bri changed his point of view and he started to care for something else than the usuals..."Work smarter, not harder. That was my motto, anyway. Of course, I hadn't been doing much work -either smart or hard- recently, which was how I'd ended up on academic probation."Well, from the first moment, the air around Josh and Bri was thick with tension...They managed to get under each other's skin but not in a good way...Bri thought of him the worst and she was showing her dislike and Josh couldn't stand those judgemental eyes upon him and he wanted to provoke her all the time...But this little game got them involved emotionally, even though that this thing between them was wrong.Bri was Josh's academic guide and he was just a client. It was unethical...And beyond that, they were like polar opposites... They would never fit in together..."Yeah... she was definetely my polar opposite.There wasn't much we had in common. Actually, I don't think we had anything in common other than attending the same school.But that made her so much more interesting."So what will happen with those two???Will they ignore everything that are standing in their way and give a shot to this attraction???Or all those things between them will keep them apart???Can they overcome their problems and be together???Can Josh abandon his ways in life and to committ only to Bri???And will Bri manage to stop judging him for his luck of goals???"In the beginning, all I wanted to do was get under her skin because she irritated the shit out of me with all her talk about study skills and graduation requiremens.Now I wanted to get under her skin in a different way.This wasn't right." {Josh}"There was a lot more to Josh than he'd have people believe. His party frat boy facade was crumbling before my eyes.Anf before I could stop it, I fell a little further and a little faster for him.Shit." {Bri}Well, i adore Josh.As i told you above, he was such an easygoing guy...Yep, he was undecided, but he was just 21 years old for God's sake!!!And he had lots of shits in his plate to deal with...Josh was a contrantiction. He was so confident and cocky at times, but underneath that facade he was a sensitive and caring man.Even though that he was refusing to show his feelings, the lack of trust by the people he loved was hurting him...He was really talented with guitar, but he was too shy to announce it...Yep, he was a little bit of lazy, but he was throwing joy and life around him and Bri wasn't an exception...She manage to crawl into his heart and he didn't want to let her go, even though that he thought he wasn't good enough for her...And for this lack of confidence, i was mad of him!!!"I was friendly with lots of people, but I could count on one hand the number of people I truly cared about. I didn't hand that power over easily. Whether she knew it or not, Bri had that power now -the power to destroy me."As i told you above, Bri was really focused on her goals and she was a little bit uptight...And here comes the laughter... She was tooking the things so literally that i couldn't stop laughing in the beginning, but Bri's character made me furious in many scenes and toward the end even more...She fell for Josh, but she was holding back, even though that Josh made her more reckless and to take more risks and in the beginning, she was doing a great job with that...But she was judgemental by nature and i think, that was because she had a hard life as a kid that made her untrustful toward people.Even though when she was in good terms with Josh, she didn't stop judging him for everything...It bothered her his lack of major, his previous sexual life... he misjudging his actions all the god damn time and that was pissing me off.Because of her low confidence, she was so unfair to him and that wasn't cool at all...My poor Josh, she ripped his heart out!!!"She had her life all put together, and I was nothing but a slacker with no direction. What did I have to offer? My love? So what if I loved her? It wasn't enough.I was never gonna be good enough for her."Now, Josh and Bri together were really great...Yep, they were so opposite characters but when they let themselves loose were such sweethearts...Their first encounters were so great and so funny...But because of this big difference between them, they were having trusting issues to themselves because of the other. They both thought that they didn't deserve to be with the other and that was such a waste of time!!!"Just remember that love isn't an equation. It's not always going to balance perfectly. It's not always rational." {Casey to Bri}Now the second characters...Josh's friends were really great guys, but sometimes i wanted to shut their mouths up...Bri's best friend, Casey was so awesome!!! I loved her near to the end... She was the only rational person around Bri.Bret was an asshole from the first moment...And Josh's father was acting also like a douche toward his son...In generally, i was so mad with almost all the characters in here because they weren't having faith toward Josh's abilities and they didn't have a fuckin' clue that this lack of trust was hurting Josh!!!!That's all for me... It was a lovely ride and i had a great time while i was reading this book!!!***ARC kindly provided via Netgalley for the exchange of an honest review***

  4. Read full review HEREI m a huge fan of contemporary romances with a college setting probably because it was less time ago than the whole high school thing So, when I saw this book one netgalley, my finger flew to the request button It helps that the blurb is the most vague thing ever The book is told in alternating POVs, and it s on first person and I m crazy about first person POV because the books are usually funnier, and this was true here This book is funny So, that s a huge thing for me and [...]

  6. Wanting More is the second book I ve read by Jessica Ruddick and definitely won t be the last On the surface Josh and Bri s story seems like the typical bad boy meets good girl new adult novel, but there s a lot to the story than you originally think Josh likes to put on a good show of not caring, but when we read the story through his POV we realize that isn t true Josh does care A lot He just didn t have the motivation to follow through before now, and I liked that Bri wasn t the main reason [...]


  7. ARC kindly provided by the author publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book The characters were great I liked how they grew and developed throughout the novel, and how although they do lean on each other for support, they are still able to keep their independence The character development for the minor characters are commendable as well It was a bit predictable but if you ve read too many books with similar stories then that wouldn t be a [...]

  10. What happens when the socially awkward, nerdy grad student falls for the extroverted goofball frat boy A lot of sweetness, a fair amount of swoon laced with generous portions of angst and some plot twists that I didn t see coming This book took me on a little bit of a rollercoaster ride not necessarily because the highs and lows within the book were so pronounced, but because my feelings about the book itself varied widely from chapter to chapter I struggled with Bri s character, mainly She s a [...]

  12. Wanting More by Jessica Ruddick is one of those novels that is middle of the road for me There is nothing wrong with it, it is well written with a great plot for me personally, however, nothing stands out that I can gush about It has an HEA, no cliffy, can be read as a standalone and is told from a first person point of view.You have a female authority figure A woman who knows her mind and what she wants But she s always so serious and takes life that way too If you looked at Bri s planner, it w [...]

  14. This is an awesome NA read that grabbed my attention from the very first page The story has a great flow and the character development is excellent Josh and Bri s story might seem like the typical bad boy good girl storyline but underneath there is so much to these characters He s the quintessential slacker in college where she s the over achiever, together they bring a balance to each other that they have both struggled to find This is the second in the series but in no way do you have to read [...]
