Now or Never by A.J. Bennett ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway
Twenty-one year old Grayson Alexander finally breaks away from an abusive relationship and finds herself free for the first time in three years.
Determined to enjoy her new-found freedom, Grayson is intent on sticking with 'no strings attached' relationships—one-night stands, and steamy sex.
But she didn't plan on Derrick.
Her attraction to the sexy man in uniform quickly turns into an unhealthy relationship. They both try to resist the pull, but neither can stay away.
When tragedy strikes, Grayson realizes it's now or never—walk away or make it work.

I enjoyed this book and read it straight through, so it was a quick read for me. I need a book to grab me and keep me interested right from the start and Now or Never did a pretty good job of doing that. 3.5 stars
Now or Never is Grayson's story. She is in an abusive and crappy relationship with Josh who is a complete jerk, one minute yelling and hurting her and the next telling her how much he loves her and how sorry he is. When she finally decides she can't take it anymore, and gathers up the strength to leave him she flees to her mother's house in Tennessee. This is where her family is, her twin sister lives near and her older brother is in the armed forces and she just wants to be close to her family. On her way there, she meets a smoking hot, yummy guy at the starbucks not far from her mom's house and she can't stop thinking about him. Then she runs into the starbucks guy AGAIN at her brothers house, she learns his name is Derrick and the rumor is he is a man-whore. They have an instant connection and chemistry, but Grayson decides he may not be the best guy for her and she starts sowing her wild oats and sleeping around with different guys.
Grayson decides to give Derrick a call and give him an offer of a lifetime....friends with benefits...f*&$k buddies....whatever you want to call it, but they still agree to see other people. Things heat up from here and they fall in love but of course things happen and there are obstacles thrown in and Grayson has to decide if it's Now or Never!!
I really enjoyed this story, it was a great coming of age love story! I definitely recommend it, and I hope we get to see more of these characters.
