Censorshipped by Savannah Scott is a fun, flirty, best friend’s sister romance. Shannon has been crushing on her brother’s best friend for years, but because of the million reasons they shouldn’t be together, she tries to get over her crush.
This book was truly entertaining and, at times, laugh out loud funny. It was watching as Duke and Shannon navigated their growing feelings for each other by trying to stuff them down.
When that doesn’t work, I enjoyed the sweetness of their burgeoning love. Too bad it was doomed to failure because Chris, Shannon’s older brother, would never allow it.
Duke had a lot of changes to make as he was the proverbial player. You see some of what he was willing to do for Shannon play out in the book, but it was more in his head or his words and not so much in his actions.
Shannon had to wrestle with the thought that the relationship of her dream may have a timestamp. It took a lot for her to determine if being with Duke was worth the potential future heartbreak.
It was also interesting to see Shannon and Duke wrestle up the courage to go after their dreams. I enjoyed Shannon’s friend group, especially Janie, her roommate and romance author.
Readers will be reminded that love is worth fighting for–even if there are people in your way.
I listened to an audiobook version of Censorshipped and was thoroughly entertained by both Amy McFadden and Will Damron’s performances. They both did a great job of portraying the characters’ personality and emotions.
If you enjoy best friend’s sister, brother’s best friend, friends-to-lovers, slow-burn, or off-limits romance, you may enjoy reading (or listening!) to Censorshipped.
I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publisher through NetGalley; a positive review was not required.
I am finally over my crush on Duke—completely done. He’s always been like a big brother to me…a big brother with abs of steel, a heart of gold, and those dimples that make my heart rate double whenever he smiles. But as far as Duke’s concerned, I’ll always be his best friend Chris’s little sister—the little girl who dunked his Darth Vader action figure in Elmer’s glue and glitter.
Even if Duke noticed me, it wouldn’t matter. I’m so off limits I may as well be wearing an outfit made entirely of caution tape. We both know Chris would enlist a special-ops tactical team to hunt him down if he ever pursued anything beyond friendship with me. Good thing I’m over Duke. One hundred percent attraction-free, that’s me. Well, mostly…until I accidentally send him one of my usual scrambled texts (thank you, autocorrect)…and he thinks I’m hitting on him.
I’m mortified enough to momentarily consider relocating someplace obscure like Greenland. I can never show my face around town again. I’ll buy a parka and an ice pick and learn to love fish…a lot. But then Duke answers my text…
Am I dreaming? He’s not mad. He’s not even making fun of me. In fact, it seems like he might be flirting back
I guess I might not be completely over this crush after all.
Just don’t tell my brother.
