DOING IT FOR LOVE
All About Love #1
Releasing Sept 29th, 2015
Cassie Mae’s charming, sexy new novel, perfect for fans of Emma Chase, puts a steamy twist on modern love as one bride-to-be tries to put the spark back in the bedroom—by any means
Elizabeth Fanning’s life looks pretty perfect, judging by the diamond ring on her finger. Her fiancé, Landon, is sweet, handsome, and hilarious. The trouble is, before they’ve even tied the knot, their sex life has gone from mind-blowing to “meh”—and Liz isn’t ready to be part of an old married couple. After a cathartic call to her best friend, Liz comes up with a brilliant idea. She and Landon may never be able to re-create the magic of their first time, but how amazing would their wedding night be if everything below the neck was off-limits until then?
Liz thinks it’ll bring them closer together. Landon’s convinced she’ll cave first. So they raise
the stakes: Whoever lasts longer gets to pick their honeymoon destination. With her heart set on the Bahamas and Landon fighting for snowbound Utah, Liz simply has to win. But pretty soon, her body is screaming for attention, and Landon’s never seemed so far away. Has Liz’s experiment backfired? Losing their little competition would be frustrating—but the one thing she can’t afford to lose is him.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Doing It for Love by Cassie Mae is a sweet, fun and light hearted book that kept me engaged and entertained all the way through.
Most romance books we read start with a couple who meet and fall in love. But what about the couples that are already in love? Lizzie and Landon have been together for a few years. They’re living together, and even though it’s a struggle at times, they’re happy. But Lizzie wants more. She wants that butterfly feeling she used to get, she wants the spicier ‘strawberries and whipped cream’ type loving. So to get things going, when Landon proposes, Lizzie suggests something a little crazy… No sex until they get married. The wedding is 5 months away.
Liz really feels like this will bring them closer as a couple, to make them desire one another even more than they already do. And Landon, being the guy he is goes with it. If one of them breaks, the other choses the honeymoon destination. The stakes are high.
I adored Lizzie and Landon together. They had such a real relationship. I remember what it was like being engaged young, still in college etc. You got to see the realities such as Landon not picking up his socks, and Lizzie budgeting every cent to not only make ends meet but pay for wedding things on top of it all. Through it all, they were a team. A team who proved that their love was the most important thing of all.
I was pleasantly surprised with how funny this book was. I expected it to be sweet and maybe a little young, but I didn’t expect to laugh out loud numerous times. Lizzie is hilarious. I loved the scene where she first met Landon’s parents… I was giggling so much. Not only were Lizzie and Landon great, but they had some awesome friends that I’m excited to read about.
If you’re looking for a story that will charm you, entertain you and make you smile and laugh non-stop, then Doing It for Love is one you should pick up!
I didn’t just fall in love with him, but I chose to fall in love every day. And even more exhilarating, he chooses me every day, too.
