Sometimes all a girl needs is a little practice...

It's been twelve months, three days, and eleven hours since accounting student Scarlett Logan made it past a second date. A pitcher of mojitos in hand, she employs her supreme graphing skills to narrow things down to one horrifying explanation. Kissing. Clearly someone needs to teach her how to kiss properly. Like, say, her best friend and roomie, Finn Mackenzie. He's safe, he's convenient, and yeah, maybe just a little gorgeous.

Finn knows exactly why Scarlett's boyfriends are disappearing quickly. Him. Not a single guy she's brought home is nearly good enough. And he'll be damned if he lets some loser give her "kissing lessons." No. He'll do the honors, thank you very much. The moment their lips touch, though, everything turns upside down. But Scarlett deserves the one thing Finn can't give her. And if he doesn't put an end to the sexy little shenanigans, he'll teach Scarlett the hardest lesson of all...heartbreak. 
First Line: "He hadn't kissed me."

Review: I'll jump at the chance at reading a friend to lovers trope which is what The Finn Factor is, but I wasn't really feeling the characters or their story much and actually found myself a bit bored for the most part.

Scarlet and Finn are best friends and have been living together for a few years. There has never been any sexual tension etc between them but one day they kiss due to the fact that Scarlett has been having bad luck in guys sticking around and she thinks it has something to do with her kissing so Finn jumps in and says she can practice kissing with him next thing you know the two can't stop thinking about it each other and the rest of the book is about them sorting their feelings out and moving from friends to lovers.

Even though the two have been friends and have been living together for so long I just wasn't feeling the chemistry between the two, it seemed more like lust than anything else. Also there was two point of views which I'm always a fan of but I just didn't connect with either one of the main characters, Finn was still very heavily guarded and Scarlett just came across a little too immature for my likes.

I did find myself caring a bit more about what happened between the two towards the end which is why I'll say this was an okay read for me.
