No idea of page numbers since there is no print edition. But there’s about 3500 locations, if that helps.
I’ve been on kind of a reading slump lately, but Sweet Spot changed that. It was the first book in a while that I just had to keep reading. It literally made me shush my family when they tried to speak to me.
Lia and Lukas meet under some pretty unconventional circumstances. As he is struggling to unlock the door to his sister’s (and his temporarily for 1 month) apartment, Lia bursts into the hall soaking wet from the bath in only an open robe. Sexual tension, commence! From the first moment they meet, the attraction is intense and funny and cute. I was a bit wary that Lukas would continue his playboy ways after meeting Lia, but was super relieved that he didn’t.
Neither one of them is interested in anything other than sex… or so they say. Lia insists she must be single to focus on her career, Lukas is convinced he never wants to settle down. They both expect to tire of the situation and move on soon enough, but instead they become addicted to one another.
The book was predictable at times, fitting the mold of “damaged woman finds broken man, can they fix one another” pretty well. However, I did appreciate that they communicated maturely, so there wasn’t a typical misunderstanding that leads to unnecessary drama (I see that way, way too much). What’s special about the book is how it managed to bring out every emotion in me. I got angry, sad, I laughed out loud, I felt anxious, I got the tingles.. aka turned on. I look forward to more from Stella Rhys.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
