"My Strongest Weakness by Brighton Walsh
It was supposed to be a one-time thing. No one would find out; no one would have to know. And then once turned into twice, and twice turned into several times a week, and now pierced, punk-loving, rebellious Tia Lanning is banging Mason Brooks, the big man on campus and Mr. All American. But banging him isn’t the problem. Falling for him is. Especially when he’s content to let her remain his dirty little secret."
My Thoughts:**My Strongest Weakness is part of the 90s Playlist Anthology.
I can always count on Brighton to deliver a sexy and good story and that is exactly what she did with My Strongest Weakness. I devoured this novella and I really loved both Tia and Mason. I also loved that it took place during the nineties. That was fun.
On paper, Tia and Mason do not work and are opposites in every single way, but in this case opposites attract. The problem is they have both made a mess of things by keeping everything a secret. We all know how cliques work and both of them fall into those cliques and let others define how they acted. I liked watching them work through all of that though. Their chemistry was intense and I really felt the connection between them.
What I really liked about this one is that while it was a novella it never felt rushed or incomplete. I really felt as if I got the complete story and that was awesome. For me, that is always the biggest challenge with novellas. I actually love novellas as a rule but there are times where the story clearly feels rushed and that I don’t like. We never had that problem here. I also loved the nineties setting. Leaving notes instead of texting and mix tapes and walk men, it was a lot of fun.
My Strongest Weakness was a really good novella and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Once again, Brighton Walsh delivered.
