{Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway} The Finn Factor by Rachel Bailey @yaboundtourspr @RachelBaileyAus

The Finn Factor
Release Date: 09/28/15
Entangled Embrace

Summary from Goodreads:
A new adult romance from Entangled's Embrace imprint...

Sometimes all a girl needs is a little practice...

It's been twelve months, three days, and eleven hours since accounting student Scarlett Logan made it past a second date. A pitcher of mojitos in hand, she employs her supreme graphing skills to narrow things down to one horrifying explanation. Kissing. Clearly someone needs to teach her how to kiss properly. Like, say, her best friend and roomie, Finn Mackenzie. He's safe, he's convenient, and yeah, maybe just a little gorgeous.

Finn knows exactly why Scarlett's boyfriends are disappearing quickly. Him. Not a single guy she's brought home is nearly good enough. And he'll be damned if he lets some loser give her "kissing lessons." No. He'll do the honors, thank you very much. The moment their lips touch, though, everything turns upside down. But Scarlett deserves the one thing Finn can't give her. And if he doesn't put an end to the sexy little shenanigans, he'll teach Scarlett the hardest lesson of all...heartbreak.

About the Author
As a teenager, I was a voracious reader of science fiction, until one day when I was 16, I saw Pride and Prejudice on television. The old version with Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson. I adored it. I’d seen it in the TV guide and, since I had a crush on Laurence Olivier after seeing him in Henry V, I’d taped it.
I watched that tape so often I can still recite most of the dialogue by heart. I sought out the book, devoured it, then found every other Jane Austen book and read and reread them frequently. I only discovered romance as a genre as an adult. Imagine my delight when I first read modern versions of Jane Austen!

Now I read most subgenres of romance, from category to historical to romantic comedy. Such a banquet!

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!


The Finn Factor is really cute. The premise is cute, the characters are cute and the chemistry between Finn and Scarlett is explosive.

The story catches your attention right from the start with our heroine, Scarlett deciding her dating drought must be because she's a bad kisser and who can help her with her technique? Her best friend and roommate, Finn. And then everything changes with a kiss. Despite their declarations and promises to keep it clinical, a lesson, neither can stop thinking about that kiss.

Finn is awesome. He's a great friend, a great brother. He protects and takes care of the people he loves. He's got a nerdy side; he's a graduate student studying archaeomusicology and he's really passionate about it. He also keeps everyone but his family - and Scarlett - at a distance. We slowly learn about his past and how that past shapes the man he is now.

Scarlett has issues from her past guiding her too. She grew up without stability and for four years Finn has been the only stable thing in her life but suddenly that's threatened once again. While dealing with her new found feelings for Finn she's also trying to figure out the rest of her life, school and work, the future she wants for herself. They're both meddlesome, Scarlett more widely, Finn more intensely, but they both do it from a place for love.

They both want each other but value their friendship too much, resisting the undeniable pull until it becomes too much, culminating in the bookshelf incident. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow as they interact with their families, face challenges and finally get their happily ever after.
