Title: Sweet Spot
Author: Stella Rhys
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Contemporary Romance
Release 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 Lukas came along.
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 soaked in the tub. Mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I ran out exposed. He looked. He laughed.
And then I locked myself out.
In short, Lukas Hendricks was smirking, swaggering trouble from the start. And me?
I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed.
Lia Pope enjoys living in her quiet little apartment all alone. One night, while trying to take a relaxing bath, she hears a commotion in the hallway. Thinking it was her neighbor needing help with her key AGAIN, she tries to ignore the noise. After hearing a loud crash, she runs out of the house in her robe to come to the rescue. Instead of running into her neighbor, she runs straight into her neighbor’s brother’s hard chest. He is the most gorgeous man she has ever seen, but when he informs her that he is moving into his sister’s apartment for a while, Lia is not happy. She just knows that a guy that looks the way he does with his cocky ass attitude is probably going to be bringing a new girl home every night at which time she will have to listen to his sexscapades through the wall.
Lukas Hendricks was amused and turned on when his sister’s neighbor came out to help him in the hall in nothing but a wet bath robe. When she tries to tell him about the quiet that is expected in the building, he quickly informs her that he owns the building and will be doing anything he wants in it. Lia sees her life as she knows it crumbling as the words come out of his mouth. He tries to lighten the mood by offering to make their inconvenient encounter up to her, but she refuses. She just wants him to leave her alone.
Lukas couldn’t stay away from Lia if he wanted to. She is beautiful, strong, and hardworking. All things that really do it for him. After some pursuit, they wind up sharing a passionate kiss in the hallway, but Lia wants to forget all about it. She is busy trying to start her own truffle company, and Lukas is exactly the kind of distraction that she doesn’t need.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to assume that eventually she can’t resist him anymore, and they finally get together. How does it happen? What kind of man is Lukas, and what does he do for a living? Is there more to him than sex appeal, or is Lukas the manwhore that Lia assumed he would be? Will Lia’s dedication to her business get in the way of them having a relationship? To find out the answers to all of that and more, you are going to have to read the story for yourselves!
I will tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The story is sexy and fun, but the author weaves in a more emotional storyline as well. At first, I thought I was just getting this hot story about two neighbors falling into bed with one another, but it was more than that. The characters had depth, and their backstories pulled on my heart strings. I have to admit that I even teared up a few times. Despite that, the story didn’t feel weighed down by that at all. It was balanced to perfection, and that is what I love most about this book and Stella’s writing. Not to mention, the sex scenes are scorching!! I thought my kindle was going to catch fire!! I’m not even joking. I really appreciate a well written sex scene, and there were plenty of them in here. To top it off, Lukas is a dirty talker! Thank you, Stella, from the bottom of my pervy little heart!
Bottom line, Sweet Spot is a fantastic book that I think everybody that enjoys contemporary romance should read! The story is engaging, steamy, and emotional without a whole lot of angst. The characters are well developed and three dimensional, and the romance is hot as hell! If you are a fan of the author’s writing or just romance in general, pick this one up immediately! You will be happy you did!
