Overview

Sex would never be enough...

Nathan Livingston has more in his life than he can handle--a high-powered job in D.C. politics, a sixteen-year-old daughter he's raising alone, and another daughter who ran away from him, whom he hasn't seen in two years.

He doesn't have anything left to invest in a real relationship. A night of hot sex with Lynn every three months is as much as he'll allow himself, and it doesn't matter that it never feels like enough.

Lynn shouldn't be involved with someone as high-profile as Nathan, since it could negatively affect her successful web magazine, but she just can't resist their nights together.

Then his complicated personal life catches up to their no-strings-attached affair, and they both find out everything they're missing.

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I really enjoyed the storyline of this book. It starts out no-strings attached sex for both Lynn and Nathan. The have to be discrete because she owns a DC web based political/gossip magazine and he is a former politician turned consultant from a well known political family. Only meeting 4 times a year but then after 2 years they both want to increase the frequency. A month later they decide to increase again to as often as possible but still keeping it no-strings. This starts out okay but they slowly begin to feel more for each other but of course don't mention that. At the same time all this is going on Nathan is dealing with raising a 16 year old daughter and searching for his 19 year old daughter who went missing 2 years ago without a trace. Only a not saying she wasn't kidnapped but ran away. There are some twists along the way as well as quite a few steamy scenes.

    The only issue I had with this book was that there was too much of the story playing out in Nathan and Lynn's heads and not enough dialogue. I prefer character interaction more than thoughts of the characters. Otherwise, I found it a very good book.

    I really enjoyed this book. Nathan is in the political scene and doesn't have time for romance. All he wants is his once every 3 month companionship with Lynn. And boy is that companionship hot and spicy. They have so major sexual chemistry. This book unfolds the unexpected love that grows between him and Lynn while at the same time, there is a backstory going on involving his runaway daughter. There is a nice little twist in the story and while it's not a major shocker, it is great watching it pan out.

    This was my first book from this author and I wouldn't hesitate to read more from her. I am hoping she makes this a series and gives Beth her story. I would LOVE to know more about her and what's going on in her head.

    4 Stars from me! I hate to say this, but I could've used a little more drama or angst, but still great!

    Missing Noelle Adams.

    ARC supplied by Netgalley.
    Well, this was one hot, erotic, sensual romance. Starts off fairly gently introducing the characters, how they know each other and Nathan's family problems then....pow! The action heats up incredibly. The sexual tension between Lynn and Nathan is incredible. They have an arrangement to meet one night every three months for sex, sex and more sex. Neither want a relationship, putting other things first, but the chance for some hot sex seems good to both so long as they can keep it casual and private.
    All goes well for two years and then...they both feel that maybe having got away with it for two years they could meet more often, say monthly, and then when that works they increase it further. Until somehow they're meeting several nights a week. Gradually its clear to others that they are both seeing someone, but they both still keep tight lipped about who it is. Then the past catches up on them and intertwines their lives further.
    I'd guessed some of the plot, but it was still a fun read. The sex was written really well, seductive and sensual, hot, erotic, none of the cringing phrases often read in so many books. I liked Lynn, loved Nathan. He'd made mistakes in his private life but recognised them and was trying to change. When things happen that bring them closer it all dovetailed so neatly. I did enjoy this book but....and I’m going to sound like an echo but once again everyone was soo happy. There wasn't any sorrow, no heartbreaking sadness, just a lovely story that flowed from occasional meetings into a beautiful relationship. There wasn't enough drama for me, I liked the story, but would have loved it if there had been some sadness in contrast to all the happy parts.
    So a spicy novel of 194 pages/342kb for £1.97 it's a good read if you just want a happy, feel good, sexy read. For me though I need that bit extra to join my keepers files but it was fine for a one off read.
    Stars: 4 – more angst and it would have been five but...

    At first I wasn't sure....

    when I first started reading it I wasn't sure. I have read all of Noelle's other books so I kept reading and boy was I glad I did. The book took off and I loved it. I fell in love with Lynn & Nathan. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is it was too happy. Yes there was issues with Nathan and his missing daughter but I thought once she came home and he found out that Lynn knew there would be trouble on the home front based on his character type but he understood and they went on. I am glad that when his daughter came back she didn't just fall back into his life full force but I think it ended short. I have hoping for a series with these characters or at least a novella.

    Simply sweet

    At first I was not sure about the book but once I got into it a little more I found it to be a refreshing love story. I enjoyed watching the characters grow and become more than they have ever been. One the story grabs you it hold of you, you won't want to put it down. Simply sweet
