A Contemporary Romance Novel

What they say: 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…

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: Natalia has been burnt by men too many times, so is completely over romance. She has fun with guys but won't do serious again, ever. She abandons dating handsome, charming men who will break her heart, preferring to see only safe, dull options. This changes when she meets Hunter at her best friend's wedding. Hunter has his own reasons for avoiding serious relationships, but he's determined that if Natalia is going to have fun with a guy then it should be him!

From the title you may be expecting Sex, Not Love to be a smutfest, which I'm sure Hunter would have liked, but there's far more depth to their story. TBH there's a lot of build up and much less smut than you'd imagine. 

To say Hunter is confident is an understatement. He's extremely confident and charming but he never comes across as arrogant or too cocky. I found his directness refreshing and his dirty mouth entertaining.

Natalia and Hunter are both likeable and funny. I didn't expect to laugh as much as I did. Their flirting is particularly amusing. I really enjoyed the banter and sexy scenes.

The secondary characters really help sell the story. Natalia's family, particularly her Mum made me smile. Her relationship with Izzy is sweet, natural and believable. It was nice seeing Hunter interact with them both.

Sex, Not Love is full of the usual Vi Keeland bookish goodness but with the added bonus of seeing Hunter trying to woo Natalia.

4 Stars in my Sky!
