Title: Sweet Spot
Author: Stella Rhys
Publication Date: March 30, 2017
Our first meeting as neighbors was screwed from the start.
He was hot. I was naked. And we had no chance in hell at ever being platonic.
I’ll be the first to admit that I live at extremes. After going ten years locked in what felt like a dysfunctional marriage, I’m now decidedly boy-free. In nearly three years I’ve had no boyfriends, no flings, no dates and no sex. For the sake of my dream career, the sacrifice has been easy.
At least it was.
Until he came along.
Lukas Hendricks. He’s rude, gorgeous, arrogant – a stone-carved wall of muscle and distraction. He’s everything I know to avoid but there’s no avoiding your next-door neighbor. Oh yeah. The man now lives three steps from me and to make matters worse, he crashed into my life while I was relaxed in the tub – mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I was exposed. He looked. He laughed.
And then I locked myself out.
In short, Lukas Hendricks was trouble from the start. And me?
I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed.
Review: How am I just discovering this awesomeness now?! Have I been living under a rock? Stella Rhys really got me with this story about Lia and Lukas. I could barely stop myself from putting it down at night, if only because I actually need sleep to function as a human being. I always love the whole brother-dates-sisters-best-friend storyline and it worked perfectly here! Lia, girl, I don’t know how you held out for so long, but damn. The funny thing is that I found her character relatable right off the bat, and I happened to be soaking in the tub when I read the part about her trying not to drop her Ipad in while reading. Coincidence? I think not. I laughed at the irony of me doing the exact same thing, and I think that’s where i got hooked. Lia and Lukas had insane chemistry right from the start, and I wasn’t annoyed by his bluntness as he openly gazed at Lia’s exposed chest when they first met. I just, ugh. There is just so much I loved about this book, from the characters to the storyline and the sexual tension to the sarcastic remarks. Love, love, love! This book was just so intense and it wasn’t shy with going beyond the sex aspect either. I love that it was well-rounded with drama and that both characters came with baggage. Lia was headstrong and I really admired her character, especially when Lukas did not make her life easy. And Lukas….he was just pure perfection. I’m a total sucker for the dark and brooding type, and he did not disappoint. Highly, highly recommend reading this book if you haven’t already.
