Five friends. Five stories.
Welcome to the LOVER show. Let’s begin with L:
Have you ever tried not liking a guy when your best friends decide you should like him? How about if that guy had the sexiest ass on the planet, and was your birthday-cake one-night-stand with icing on top?
London Reeves agrees that three years is a long time to live without sex, but one steamy hot night could never last longer than the morning after. Yet, her four lunatic best friends disagree on that last one. The voices in her head disagree, too, and even her mother seems to think she’s crazy. And sexyass will not take a goddamn no for an answer. Now what exactly is a girl to do against that?
London is a little odd. She visualizes voices in her head as replicas of herself that have one feeling. For example there is one for happy, angry.. You get the idea. But once you get used to this, there are times it is funny but mostly it easily fades into the background. Almost like it is the most normal thing in the world.. I know, strange right?
London, is on a dry spell and is stuck in the ‘friends’ zone with the guy she loves- Carter. So when she meets sexy Liam at a bar, she lets lose. And WHOA, what a one night stand!! This part of the book was sexy, fun and if I had to classify it as anything it would be entitled- Marathon Sex! But London is an emotional roller coaster and at times it was difficult to identify with her juvenile antics. To be honest, I did’t really like her character in the beginning. But surprisingly, she grew on me and near the second half of the book, I didn’t want to put it down.
Liam is hot. There is just no other words for it. He is sweat, flirtatious, and fun. But he has some major flaws that pushed me away from his character. Without giving away anything all I can say is I didn’t like how he was willing to jump to ‘the next best thing’ at the first sign of distress. But I liked how he stood up for himself when he discovered what was behind London’s antics and how she wasn’t all in.
I know that last paragraph is a little confusing but I can’t say more without giving away some of the plot twists. Overall, the book was a fun read. The characters grow on you and by the end of the book you don’t want to put it down.
