When a class assignment requires seventeen-year-old Julie to shadow someone on the job, she’s overwhelmed by the decisions she’ll have to make. After all, she has no clue what she wants from life post-graduation. So when her Uncle Charlie, Oakland’s Chief of Police, suggests Julie fulfill her twenty hours of required job shadowing at the local police department, she’s thrilled at his solution. Thinking she’ll spend her days filing paperwork behind a desk, she finds herself quickly agreeing to his proposition. But Julie’s expectations are quickly turned upside down when she meets Luke, the young and handsome (albeit somewhat stubborn) officer she’s assigned to shadow on patrol.

With every hour she logs with Luke at the wheel, her feelings stir deeper, and Julie can’t help but wonder if what she’s feeling has developed into more than just a little crush.
~My Thoughts~
Looking for something to quench my craving for New Adult Contemporary Romances I was strolling through my kindle books and found this little gem! Though it's a Young Adult novelette, the main character Julie was mature enough to make me feel as if I wasn't reading a young adult story. Sometimes I just don't like how na├»ve they can be. And Julie sure had brains and a back bone, surely keeping me interested.
Though being only 87 pages, Mrs. Puckett sure knows how to build a story, bring some depth, and pace it all just right. Throughout the story nothing felt forced and everything felt completely natural as our two leading characters started to developed Just a Little Crush for each other.
This was such a cute, funny read with a gut grabbing depth to it. The concept interests you but it's Mrs. Puckett's words and storytelling that hooks the readers. I absolutely loved the build up and when I found out the box set (1-4) is free on Amazon I downloaded it immediately and started on the sequel, Just a Little Embrace, because at the end of this I was craving for more!

Thanks for stopping by!
