They're partners…with benefits?

"I won't fail."

Kyle’s got a problem. He needs to pass college composition to graduate but he can’t get words on a page.  And it’s landed him in a pilot class called Extra Credit for students in trouble -- when all he wants is to be left alone.

"Because you're going to help me."

Lani’s got a problem too. She doesn't like making waves and it gets her stuck in that Extra Credit class. When she ends up partnered with Kyle things start getting complicated. Kyle is angry, restless, impatient; Lani is calm, introverted, bookish. But when these opposites attract how will they manage to stay “just partners”?

Extra Credit is a New Adult series that takes place on a college campus and puts three unlikely couples together to see what happens. Each novella is in dual point-of-view with a happy ending that can be read as a standalone, though they’re better together…! The series includes sexy times that are only meant for readers over 18.

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
The Partnership was a beautiful, intriguing story. A new adult romance with two opposites that are attracted to one another. Each character was unique in their own way and kept me interested the whole time. I also thought the Extra Credit program was brilliant.

Lani is a very passive person. She doesn't like attention or to cause issues for people. She just becomes a doormat. She grew up this way considering her family's status with her brother. Her being put in the program was frustrating because she allowed her friend to walk all over her. She was shy, quiet, reserved and kept ro herself. However, underneath all that she was a fun, awesome girl. The program did some good for her. I enjoyed that she was also Hawaiian!

Kyle is like a ticking time bomb. He's very assertive and knows what he wants. I enjoyed his character, but I knew his anger stemmed from somewhere. It amazed me to see how deep his anger went. He was put in the program due to a class he failed. I loved his personality because even though he was assertive he had a loving heart for those in his circle. Just downright awesome.

The romance between Lani and Kyle was pretty darn cute. I admired that even though Lani was shy, she knew how to enjoy herself sexually which of course was good for Kyle. The two of them together are absolutely funny and help to balance one another. I loved seeing them grow as a couple and really work towards a loving relationship. The sex was amazing between them as well.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and definitely plan to read the others because the other characters are just as interesting.
