A Nix Review – More than Lovers by Jess Dee (4 Stars)

Posted in 4 Stars, Erotic, review / 0 Comments

It was just sex…until the booty calls got serious.

When Sarah Deacon’s new relationship comes to an unexpected end, she heads straight for the one place she can always find no-strings comfort—her neighbor’s bed. Charlie, who’s made it clear sex is all he wants, is only too happy to oblige.

Hot sex with a gorgeous surfer any time she’s single and in the mood? Oh, yeah. She’s all signed up for that course.

Charlie Hudson knows he’s all wrong for the sexy geneticist. After all, what could a long-haired school dropout have in common with a classy academic? Nothing…except maybe a burning desire for her that just won’t quit no matter how often they have sex.

Sensing the breakup has damaged her self-worth, Charlie cooks up a plan to introduce her to three “appropriate” men who’ll show her she’s the most beautiful woman in the world. But when his matchmaking begins to work too well, he realizes there’s only one thing worse than not having her in his bed.

Losing the chance to make her his forever.

FTC : I love Jess Dee. I got this copy for an honest review and that is what it is getting…  no point in lying about it!

Jess Dee is one of my auto-read authors if I want an Erotic Romance fix. She writes really good sex. That being said, I also loved the fact that this was a no-strings sex to love trope.. I had to read it.

At 113 pages, this isn’t the longest story in the world but what it does, it does well. The sex scenes are very well written, each scene getting more possessive and kinky as Charlie gets ready to say goodbye to Sarah (his lack of self-worth was really quite heart-breaking). They come from two ends of the spectrum and this has him convinced that his surfer dude lifestyle is not good enough for uber smart Sarah. Out of the three men that Charlie set’s her up with, we only really meet Dr Sam (who Charlie is convinced is Mr Perfect) which makes me think a book could be coming his way 🙂

I liked both characters but, as is always the case with novellas, I didn’t really know them. For me, this always means that, although I feel the sex connection, I don’t often feel the love connection. This is just the way I am; I need time to know my characters before I love their love story. What was very well written in this book is Charlie’s heart-break, each scene between them becoming more painful to read as he prepares to give up the love of his life for, in his eyes, her own benefit.  It made me adore him slightly but I really didn’t get that emotionally attached to Sarah. I felt the love between them, I just wasn’t there with them. I felt the heat though. This book should come with a bucket of cold water; with sexy doctor scenes, back-door action and some very dirty action during a phone call, there is pretty much something to tickle everyone’s fancy.

This is a very well written sexy novella. With scorching sex scenes and a cute plot, this one ticked a lot of boxes for what I wanted to read at the time. As per usual, recommended.
