Synopsis: Finley O'Connell is a shy, reserved college student, who has no intention of ever trusting another man. At nineteen, Finley spends her Friday nights alone, studying clinical psychology to ease her mind of the abusive childhood she has yet to overcome. Her new professor, the young, charismatic Cabel Jones, begins to take an interest in Finley, whose first instinct is to run. But when an ordinary experiment turns to bloodshed, Finley must rely on Cabel, as the two hide away in a rustic, secluded cabin in the wilderness. Plagued by deception and fear, Finley soon finds herself in the arms of the one man on campus who can never truly be hers.
Review: Finley O’Connell is a college freshman who has escaped an abusive home life and hoping to study clinical psychology to help her overcome her fears. When a psychology experiment conducted by her young professor, Cabel Jones, goes horribly wrong they run to a secret hideout. Then it got weird…
ME & MR. JONES is a strange combination of drama, mystery, and romance. I can’t say the story really kept my attention as it seemed to be two disjointed plots in one book. I thought Finley and Cabel’s relationship was strange, to say the least, and the ‘instant-love’ aspect was disconcerting. I would have been more interested if the author had stuck with the mystery / adventure part of the story and cut down on the relationship aspects. ME & MR. JONES just didn’t do it for me, unfortunately.
