One scorching weekend of no-strings sex? Or the first two days of something special…Going home for his older sister’s wedding has been a real pain. Unable to get a room at a local hotel, he's stuck in his parents’ spare bedroom, in a twin bed too short for his six-four frame, with nothing to do but fantasize about his sister’s maid of honor and her little purple bikini. Joey Sanchez: the woman he’s had a crush on for the last ten years. All grown up in all the right places.
And it just so happens she’s had a crush on him too.
Lucky for him, Joey knows what she wants. In the pool, in the movie theater, with some very hot text messages, she quenches his desire and demands no promises. She’s married to her career, and that’s the way she likes it. But with the weekend winding down, Rob realizes she’s only left him wanting more. And he doesn’t want to spend the next ten years without her…
Rob is home for the big event, his sister’s wedding. And her BFF Joey is there too. Rob has always had a crush on Joey, and now Joey is ready to take matters into her own hands. Jennifer James has written every teenage boy turn hot and sexy man’s dream come true with this story. Rob and Joey are the source of several epically hot and sexy scenes that had me curling my toes and thinking “dammmmmmnnnnnn!”
This was a quick read because I really didn’t want to put it down. For one thing, it’s written from Rob’s point of view, which is something I don’t see too often. And you know what? I liked it. Sometimes it’s nice to see what a man thinks (but not all the time fellas, we’ll let you know when we want your opinion, mmm’kay?) But in this case Rob is very likeable, and as the story goes on and it becomes clear his feelings are more than sexual, the more I like him. And I am so excited for him that his fantasies have finally come true with Joey.
And heck, Joey? That woman simply exudes awesomeness. She is calm, cool, and collected. She’s hot and sexy, and quite inventive while being spontaneous and playful. But I have to tell ya, if I could take her out of the story and put me in her place, you’d have to consider it done!
So all in all I give this story lots of thumbs up! It was super hot with lots of teasing and sneaking around to add a bit of fun. The characters are so likeable and real. I really hope Rob gets everything he wants, but if he doesn’t – I’ll give him my number!
