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…
This is one HOT read! I liked the idea of this story right from the beginning and it starts off strong and stays that way all the way through. Rob has returned for his sister’s wedding and while he thought he would he would the queen size bed in his sister room, he was bumped out by the bride and her best friend, Joey, the girl that Rob has always had a thing for. All Rob can think about is the fact that he is stuck in the twin bed that is way to small for him. Looking for some type of relief he heads for the pool in the middle of the night hoping to cool off. He is very surprised when Joey shows up and offers him some fun.
The interactions and sexual tension in this story are outstanding, some of the best that I have read. I think what makes this so different from other books I have read in this genre is how natural and real it really is. I can see any of these interactions happening in real everyday life, perhaps in a perfect situation but really they could happen. There was good relationship development and more depth that just sex. There is a strong background that is referred to but the reader does not miss what they don’t know, you can just accept that it must have happened. Each character is well developed. I love that Joey is such a strong woman, she know exactly what she wants and she is not afraid to say it or do it.
This was a very strong read and I enjoyed every page. At the end, I was left wishing that this was a full length novel because I wanted more of both Rob and Joey. I wish much success to Jennifer James because I cannot wait to read more from her. She caught me hook, link and sinker. Go check this out ~ just be prepared for the heat!
