Alcohol plus a lack of clothing equals a 21st birthday Shaun Evans will never forget.

Belinda Thinks: Shaun wakes up the day after her 21st birthday party in a strange bed, naked and hung over. A series of flashbacks detail the wild night she had, and help explain why she’s sharing a bed with her best friend’s fiancĂ©’s best friend.

Her awkward mortification is easy to identify with, which makes her experience relatable and a very sweet ending even sweeter. I f she had to embarrass herself in front of someone, why did it have to be her crush, the delectable yet intelligent Reed Winters? From strip poker to drunken declarations, Shaun has had a crazy 21st birthday, but the morning after is even stranger. Shaun and Reed circle warily around each other, with confused memories and obvious attraction clouding their encounters.

The writing is good and free of errors, and though the situation isn’t necessarily realistic, both characters are gentle with their feelings and very likeable, sharing an immediate and believable chemistry. The story is a worthy read, featuring a genuine relationship and a feel-good ending that really does make you feel good.

  1. First of all, it was beer pong... not poker.

    Secondly, isn't realistic? It states in the A/N that it was a real event in the writer's life MINUS the character Reed...

    Did you even read this?!

    Sorry. It's just I love this story, one of Castiel89's best <3
