She's the last thing he needs, but she's the only thing he long as it's behind closed doors.
It was supposed to be a one-time thing. No one would find out; no one would have to know. And then once turned into twice, and twice turned into several times a week, and now pierced, punk-loving, rebellious Tia Lanning is banging Mason Brooks, the big man on campus and Mr. All American.
But banging him isn't the problem. Falling for him is. Especially when he's content to let her remain his dirty little secret.

The cover of My Strongest Weakness caught my attention from the moment it popped up on my Amazon recommendations. Then I read the synopsis and I debated purchasing right that second. I was hesitant for two reasons it was only 81 pages ( according to Amazon, goodreads says its 150) and it was $2.99. I kept asking myself if I should take the risk and be blown away by an author I’ve never read or be out $2.99 for a book I didn’t enjoy. I decided to take a chance and let me tell you I am glad I did.

My favorite thing about My Strongest Weakness is that it was one of the few novellas I read that didn’t have a whole lot of insta love within those 81 pages. Oh and did I mention this takes place in the 90s?

Tia and Mason have already met and they have been hooking up for quiet sometime. Brighton Walsh gives you a bit of a backstory so that it didn’t feel like it rushed. The story was pretty well developed as were the characters.

I also enjoyed that Tia wasn’t your cookie cutter quarterback’s girlfriend. She loved rock music, she dressed in all black, and she had piercings and tattoos. The complete opposite of what you tend to picture the quarterback’s girlfriend.

I loved how even though this was a short story, it felt like a full-length novel. I especially loved the ending and I reread it a couple hundred times because it made me so happy.

I personally plan to pick up more by Brighton Walsh because if she can deliver such an amazing read in a couple pages then I can’t wait to see how she delivers in a full length novel.
