5 out of 5 Licks
It was just sex…until the booty calls got serious.
More Than…Book 2
When Sarah Deacon’s new relationship comes to an unexpected end, she heads straight for the one place she can always find no-strings comfort—her neighbor’s bed. Charlie, who’s made it clear sex is all he wants, is only too happy to oblige.
Hot sex with a gorgeous surfer any time she’s single and in the mood? Oh, yeah. She’s all signed up for that course.
Charlie Hudson knows he’s all wrong for the sexy geneticist. After all, what could a long-haired school dropout have in common with a classy academic? Nothing…except maybe a burning desire for her that just won’t quit no matter how often they have sex.
Sensing the breakup has damaged her self-worth, Charlie cooks up a plan to introduce her to three “appropriate” men who’ll show her she’s the most beautiful woman in the world. But when his matchmaking begins to work too well, he realizes there’s only one thing worse than not having her in his bed.
Losing the chance to make her his forever.
Warning: One blond-haired, blue-eyed surfer dude + red-hot booty calls = a book you will not be able to put down (unless you plan to go surfing…or jump your guy.)
Wow. Just…wow. So much heat in this novel you may actually set fire to your ereader. This is book 2 in the “More Than” series and I gotta say, this one did not disappoint. I actually liked it more than the first. <gasp!> I know, a hard accomplishment. Often I find in series books the secondary characters stories aren’t nearly as interesting as the original. With Ms. Dee I never should have worried. This novel held its own…big time.
The author takes a well-known term and sexual freedom for singles, a “booty call,” to a new place. Geneticist Sarah was essentially left hanging by Sebastian, the man she dated in book 1 in the series, who left her for his long time best friend. Bummed and out of sorts the book starts with her meeting up with Charlie a local surf instructor for one of their standing booty calls. The rule…as long as they are not in a relationship they are free to knock on the others door. Living in the same complex makes this easy.
The book continues through a naughty sexual wager that takes their causal relationship to an interesting place. What was the wager? Read it and find out for yourself. I can’t give you all the awesome-sauce in one review. I can tell you that between extremely well written words, you get intense, wicked hot love scenes and a true love story at the heart of it.
One of my favorite sections from the novel:
How the heck did Charlie go from lying to standing in one fluid movement? It seemed, in a word, impossible. Surely the fifteen years spent determining the human genome hand been less complicated that mastering…
I’ll bet you’re pissed that I ended it there? <snicker> Sorry ‘bout your luck. READ THE BOOK! You won’t regret it.
I could spend a good hour going on and on about how much I liked this short novel and Ms. Dee’s field of work. She’s that good. So, if you want a book that is a five star fire starter in the bedroom, one that your significant other will thank you for reading, one that will leave you taking shallow breaths and an inability to concentrate on anything but finishing? This is your read. My only complaint…I’m a greedy little kitty that always wishes for more.
