Bennett (Leaves of a Maple Book 3) by Haley Jenner
🎩🎩🎩.5 hats from Julia!
I wanted to give Bennett all the stars. In all honesty Bennett does have all the stars. What took away from them was Darci. Her constant indecisiveness really took away from the story a bit. I loved the fairy tale mentions, we are Red Hatter for a reason. Red Riding Hood is my favorite fairy tale. I loved the nicknames and how the author incorporated the fairy tales in the story. I loved Bennett and Francesca. I just couldn’t like Darci.
Bennett is an amazing character and I love the drive he has. He wants Darci no matter what and after everything she puts him through he doesn’t give up on her. Darci can’t decide what she wants and takes pushing Bennett away to a new level. She pushes him so much I think it was around 80% that she finally stopped. That took away from their connection a bit to me. I could feel their connection and see the feelings flowing when they were intimate, but as soon as it was over she was running. It frustrates not only Bennett, but me as a reader as well.
Overall, I liked the book. I wanted to love it so much, but couldn’t. The sex was out of this world hot, the connection fell a bit but Bennett pretty much stole the entire story. Everyone wants a Bennett in their life. Through the bad I’ll recommend this and definitely read the next one!

therein lies my problem. My sweet, untamed addiction liked to play timid. That
was her first lapse in judgment. Turned me to fire, kick-started a game of cat
and mouse I couldn’t get enough of. Me, the Big Bad Wolf. Darci, my sinfully,
sexy Riding Hood.
One night led to an addiction neither one of us wanted to overcome. Two nights
led to something a little… more. Whether we were ready or not, our connection
solidified itself in forever. I was ready, I was willing. Now, if only I could
