From the New York Times and Usa Today best-selling author Addison Moore comes a new adult romance.
This book includes sexual situations and is for mature audiences.
Baya Brighton is looking forward to her first year at Whitney Briggs University, new friends, dorm life, and finally being close to her brother again. Love is the last thing on the list, but when Baya meets her brother's roommate, she begins to have thoughts and feelings that even make her blush. Bryson Edwards has a secret he prefers buried in the past and long forgotten. He keeps himself busy with the important things: loose girls, fast cars, and long nights working at the string of bars his family owns. When his roommate's sister shows up on the scene, she's far too innocent and sweet for him, but he can't shake Baya out of his mind, and worse, it looks like she's seeping into his heart as well. Baya seems determined to show her brother she's not a little kid and equally determined to use Bryson's body to prove her point. It's been made pretty clear that Baya is off limits to Bryson, but their undeniable sparks explode into a whole lot more than just a few 3:00 a.m. kisses.

I adored this book! I usually go for something with a bit more "grit", but I'm so glad I gave this book a listen. It didn't take long to realize that this author wasn't just going to give me the same old thing: innocent girl meets bad boy... bad boy changes his ways... love... HEA... Don't get me wrong, all of those things were there (along with a few plot twists I wasn't prepared for), but my favorite part of this book, the part that had me listening in marathon sessions whenever I could and literally giggling out loud, was how creatively the author wrote Baya's innocent thoughts. There were no "quivering members" or "delicate flowers", instead there were so many clever euphemisms that I honestly couldn't wait to hear what she came up with next. On top of that, it was seamlessly written into the story and just totally worked. I loved hearing most of the story from the POV of a spunky, witty, strong female main character- the kind that can still throw a little sass, even while her knees are weak... The steamy scenes weren't over powering, but the author did such a great job with the flow of this book, that I was worked up right along with Baya and Bryson.

Even though I received this book for free, I would not have regretted paying for this one at all. In fact, I've already started listening to my next book by Ms. Moore and see her quickly becoming a must listen for me.
[This audiobook was well narrated with quality production - NOT in a wind tunnel, NOT awkwardly spliced with repeating phrases, NOT w the background noise of your high school during class changes]
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Beya and her snarky little attitude...she is such a wonderful girl!!!
Beya once again....she is a great main character!!!
I LOVE CAITLIN KELLY 100% AND I RECOMMEND ANY & ALL OF HER WORK!!!

I almost missed out on this one, but after listening to another one of Addison/Caitlin's works of art, I had to have it...and I am soooo glad I did! I absolutely loved this story, I loved the characters, the writing, the narration...ALL OF IT!! Beya is 19yrs old and off to college in the shadow of her big brother, who is over protective and kind of a misogynist...His Roommate runs into Beya after witnessing a nip slip (lol) and offers to help her to her dorm, and then to find her brother, a friendship ensues with some very strong chemistry..Bryson is a hottie, but he has a troubled past and has been going through a bevy of beauties to kill the pain...that is until he meets Beya...she is kind of off limits...but that's not going to last for long!
THIS IS SOOOO CUTE AND QUITE HILARIOUS! I RECOMMEND 1000%
I like the book because it was a light read but the storyline took a slight but interesting turn that made me want to get to the end to find out what happens, I would recommend this title to all my friends and that's also the reason I gave it the ratings I did

I am not normally a fan of new adult romance, reminds me too much of my college aged boys, but Addison Moore always entertains me. This first book in the 3am series brought that entertainment to me. Baya, a young, naive freshman enters her first year in college with the idea of letting loose. Little did she know that is exactly what she was going to do the first hour on campus, and right in front of the "sex God" Bryson. Bryson turns out to be her brother's roommate and is not allowed to touch her. As time goes on, this attraction becomes too much to avoid, and they fall in love.
I did find Baya's character to be completely hormonal and sex crazed, but was pleasantly surprised with Bryson's in depth character. He really has been through a lot, and his hurt and love all shine through. The cast of supporting characters in this book are very interesting. I am looking forward to getting to know Laney and Roxie better, and can't wait to see who whoring brother Cole finally gives his heart to.
Caitlin Kelly does an on-point narration. She is able to give Baya the naive voice needed to make her believable. I love her male narrations too...completely warm and sexy for the college age boys. Her narrations never disappoint and I will look for books just to hear them.
Love all romance, dark romance, romantic comedy and suspenseful romance!
A cute brother's best friend love story that will make you wish for some 3am kisses!
I enjoyed listening to this audiobook as I felt it was a light hearted romance although there were some tough situations thrown in. Some things did not make sense such as why would a man leave his two twenty something sons run a bar? Let's not forget one of them was in college full time all the while maintaining an internship with a marketing company. I'm thinking he was stretched too thin to start a relationship. Also, I believe the hero and heroines brother were seniors in college yet they were planning out roommates for the next year. Huh?
The details may have been a bit confusing but the dialogue was hilarious! I did laugh aloud a couple of times from the off the wall stuff that the heroine would say or think and his alone makes it worth listening to. I've read a lot of witty books and been around teenagers, but some of this stuff is worth repeating.
The narrator, also, was excellent. I will be interested in the next book in this series.

i love adult romance and this was not any exception. it was a great book will read more by this author
I absolutely loved this book. This was my first Addison Moore book and I am beyond happy with it. I am definitely one clicking the rest.
Baya is a rare breed of girl these days
She is a freshman in college and still a virgin. She comes to campus and searches for her older brother Cole. While searching for him, she runs into Bryson. Bryson is a knockout. He's drop dead gorgeous and a total womanizer. He also just happens to be Cole's roomate. Baya soon learns that her brother and his roommate are man whores. They actually keep count with notches in the wall of their conquests.
Baya makes Bryson feel for the first time in a very long time. He suddenly wants to end his manwhore ways and settle down with a girl completely off limits. If Cole finds out what Bryson and Baya are up to, all bets are off. Trouble is brewing.
This is a wonderful story that fills you with hope, makes you laugh out loud, and will leave you hoping for more. I am so glad I read this book. It was very refreshing.
This was also the best audio version of any book that I have ever listened to, and I have listened to many many books.
Have listened to other books by this author but had a hard time getting into this book. The characters seemed adolescent, as if I was reading about high school or YA characters, not college or adult age characters.
So, Baya and Bryson come together, are growing up and finding themselves, but it just seemed like the story line was a bit lacking and it was a lot more about trying to have sex, or trying not to have sex, or shaming others for having sex. And that's the story - but there was so much more potential here.
But I also think the narrator does a pretty decent job. The voices sounded right, and made me laugh.

"The perfect first kiss...."
I have read all the kisses books so far so was excited to see this had come out in audiobook as I spend ALOT of time in the car!
This story really drew me in because if how honest it was about that "first time" for everything. Baya is funny, clever and sarcastic to boot and Bryson is not the stereotypical damanged man that crops up in all books at the moment. there are secrets yes, but there is love and fun tioo.
A perfect book to get lost in!
I can't wait to see if the other books come out on audio book. Especially wild kisses which comes out this month!!
