Sex, Not Love Review

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…   ADD TO GOODREADS    

Reanell's 5 Star Review

Well, well, well. Vi Keeland has a writing schedule, and releases throughout the year in the same months. So it's no surprise that her January release always ends up being my first favorite for the year. And guess what? Sex, Not Love is my first favorite for the year! 

Hunter and Natalia meet at a wedding. Natalia's best friend is marrying Hunter's best friend. I love how Vi always makes the "first meeting" between characters memorable. Hunter overhearing Natalia making plans to sleep with somebody is hilarious, especially since he tries to get her to sleep with him! And boy oh boy is the chemistry off the charts HOT! Hunter is on a mission and he gets what he wants. Nat put up a good fight, but come on, we knew she would give in.

There are parts of this story that are my favorite but have a talking about stuff not written in the blurb. So I can't tell you my favorite part of this book....LOL. Just know it involves a very important person in Nat's life. My favorite quote happens to be by Mr. Delucia himself.

"I prefer to live my life looking forward, not backward. You look in the rearview mirror too often, sometimes you miss what's right in front of you."

I've read almost all of Vi Keeland's books and she manages to surprise me every time. Each book is different while maintaining her "writing style". It's the main reason she is one of my favorite authors. I haven't read a book by her that I didn't like! I often think that she needs to write more, but then I realized that she doesn't need to do that, because what she is doing works. So I won't be greedy and beg for more books LOL!


 Vi Keeland is a #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author. With millions of books sold, her titles have appeared in over eighty Bestseller lists and are currently translated in nineteen languages. She lives in New York with her husband and their three children where she is living out her own happily ever after with the boy she met at age six.
