BOOK REVIEW- Sex, Not Love By Vi Keeland

BLURB

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.
We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.
I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.
We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.
I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.
I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.
Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?
Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

MY THOUGHTS

When Natalia Rossi meets Hunter Delucia at her BFF’s wedding their chemistry is explosive but Natalia has baggage, an ex husband serving time in prison and a 15 year old step daughter that hates her. Even though the pull towards Hunter is strong she’s just not prepared to take the risk even when they meet again at the birth of her BFF’s first child one year later, that’s when Hunter takes matters into his own hands and turns up on her doorstep with a proposal. Eight weeks of sex, not love while he’s working on a project in Natalia’s home town, and so the days of mind numbing wonderful sex begins that is until their time comes to an end and Natalia ends up falling hard for Hunter. The only thing is Hunter has a secret that stops him from ever getting involved with anyone, even the woman who has stolen his heart and soul. Loved it what a beautiful and engaging romance between these two lovable characters, the story line was so enchanting, engaging and interesting with such a strong sexual chemistry between Natalia and Hunter. This is an awesome read.
