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

Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Hunter Delucia is the ultimate book boyfriend. Attentive, caring, sweet with a dirty dirty mouth. Dirty talking that he lives up to I might add.
Natalie has struggled to have her career that she loves and with a crappy ex-husband that left her with a teenage step-daughter to raise it's impressive that she is handling it all so well. She has always liked the good looking bad boys but this most recent experience has her swearing off the good looking charmers and dating the "nice" guys.
Natalie and Hunter have ridiculous chemistry, so after him chasing her for over a year, they finally come to terms for a short term "Sex, Not Love" agreement. What could go wrong.
I love Keeland's storytelling style. She sucks me in every time. Tons of witty banter, which I love. I am half leaving my husband for Hunter now. He has enough bad boy to get my attention and a caring side which reeled me right in.
While there is plenty of comedy and melt the pages sexy time, Keeland touches on a real life condition that added depth to the story. Thanks for another great read Vi!
I was gifted a copy for an honest review.

5 Sweet Pea Stars!
Again, this is another book that I was looking forward to, and was hoping that the hype was going to match the story. Have no fear, it is that good. This is classified as a contemporary romance, but believe me, it is also a rom-com. It is told in dual POV, mostly the heroine but enough of that gorgeous hero to keep us happy.
Natalia Rossi has had it tough but she has found her zen with her new career. Even though she is still living on the East Coast to raise her step daughter, she keeps in contact with her bestie in California constantly. I loved the vibe these two had together, it was effortless and hilarious at the same time. Nat was loyal and devoted to Izzy and her family. If a guy was to come into the mix, he had to be special and respective. And Hello Hunter Delucia! OMGoodness this man had me at the get go. He had manners and a wicked sense of humor with a dirty mouth. He was sincere and unpretentious. And in the words of Nat... "he's lewd, forward, persistent....... sexy as hell". He had me sighing and swooning when I wasn't laughing or giggling. I think I embarrassed myself in a waiting room with the biggest smirk while reading, then snorted out loud! Nat and Hunter had instant chemistry and it was authentic and believable what these two experienced together or previous to their union. Hunter's backstory is very touching and will melt your heart. Nat too made me want to give her the biggest hug, her ex husband was an utter douchebag.
Argh..... I just want more of these two, I am having a huge book hangover. I want to escape into their world again and indulge some more, I am so infatuated with them both. So in case you didn't get it, I highly recommend you read this one.
