    HOLLLLLY HOTNESS.

    This book is about a girl named Vivian. She is in an abusive relationship with her boyfriend Brody!! I mean really….this guy is a serious jerk!! He says alot of mean hurtful things to Viv. Among other things, he tells her she is “frigid” and “boring ol’ vanilla”. Enter Liam,...SWOON!!! He is her brothers best friend. He helps her see that what Brody is doing is abusive and she finally dumps his sorry butt!! Liam is a lieutenant in the Army who is set to return in a week. Because Julian is also in Iraq and their parents died in a car accident 4 years ago, he is staying at the house to help her around the house with anything she may need before he has to return.
    Vivian can’t stop thinking about the things Brody has said to her so she decides to make a sexual bucket list While finishing up her list, she decides to go upstairs and mark one off, leaving her list on the table. Later, when Liam goes to the kitchen, he finds her list and decides to talk to her about it. He calls her down and tries to talk her out of it but then she asks Liam to be her partner to help cross things off and once he sees there is no way around it, he agrees.
    This is when I think my kindle is about to catch fire…...HOLLLLY hell some of the scenes in this book were off the chart HOTTTT!! Boy, does Liam know how to use a can of whip cream!!! Not sure I will ever look at a can of whip cream the same again!! The jeep scene and the mirror scene……wooooo, panty melting!! This is def a book that after I have finished I just keep thinking about.
    What started off as just helping Vivian marking things off her list has made them both realize they have tons of chemistry together and they realize they are in love with each other but they both know Liam is returning to Iraq in a week.
    I am not a fan of cliffhangers but this is not a bad one. The second books is due out sometime this year and it will be called Liam’s List. I have so many questions. Will Liam return safely and if so will things still be the same for them? Will Julian come home in the next book? How will he feel about Liam and Vivian being together? Maybe he will get his own book as well (hint, hint)
    There was so many great things I loved about this book. I loved the fact that you get the dual POV. I love seeing how each think and feel. I loved Viv’s girlfriends, Katie and Chelsea. Chelsea is such a hoot!!! I would def recommend this book to others and I will be on the lookout for all of Haleigh’s book!! I received this as an ARC!!

    Absolutely loved it! A beautifully written love story with erotic touches

    This is a very nice, feel good love story. Vivian is a young, independent and kind hearted woman. She is in a horrible relationship with a man named Brody. I don't know that I've ever disliked a character as much as him. He disrespects her, verbally abuses her and is just down right mean. Vivian only sees that he loves her. She takes his possessiveness as a term of endearment. She doesn't see the abuse, she only sees a relationship.
    In walks Liam, her older brothers childhood best friend. He is tall, dark and gorgeous with a body to die for. Liam is in the Army and on leave. He is staying at Vivian's house to help her with the lawn, the pool maintenance, repairs, you name it. He promised her brother that he would look after her. After all ... They all grew up together.
    Liam sees the way that Vivian is treated and doesn't like it one bit. He tries telling Viv that she is being abused and deserves better. Since Vivian doesn't see it, she fails to accept it. This alone breaks Liam's heart, because his mother went through the same thing.
    After a huge blow up with Brody, who calls her sexually rigid ... Vivian makes a list. A sexual list that she vows she will complete. As she is off in her bedroom trying to cross off an "adventure", Liam walks in on her. He walks away and into the living room, and he comes across this list. Knowing how much he cares for her (and possibly loves her), he agrees that he shall be the one to help her complete her list.
    The two embark on a wonderful journey of love and lust. They find solace in one another. A very beautifully written story, with erotic touches. Thank you for a great read Haleigh Lovell. You have made sex into a great story. A+ in my book!!

    Familiar Theme Makes for an Engaging & Super Steamy Read!

    Those looking for a quick read with surprising depth and steamy interludes will find exactly that in this book by a new-to-me author. Though the theme might be a bit cliched the thoroughly likable characters, strong emotional connection, and intriguing dual point of views make for an engaging and compelling read that has me looking forward to the next book to get a resolution to the burgeoning romantic relationship between Vivian and Liam.

    Vivian has recently come to the conclusion that her boyfriend is mentally and emotionally abusive and in a moment of empowerment she kicks him to the curb and creates a sexual Bucket List to banish his final words to her. Being told she's frigid and boring in bed has her wanting to prove her ex Brody wrong in a steamy assortment of sexual interludes. Helping her in her sexual endeavor is her brother's best friend Liam, who's in town before deployment, which adds a constant sense of urgency to their time together. Vivian is a likable character who has a strong-will but just got lost along the way after being with Brody for so long. She's wholeheartedly regaining her independence now though in a larger than life way which leads to numerous hot and heavy encounters that are nicely spaced throughout the story and shows a strengthening of the bond between Vivian and Liam.

    Liam has known Vivian for many years and is happy to see her get rid of her abusive boyfriend. As she feels safe around him she's counting on him to help her meet each of the goals on her sexual list. Though he doesn't want to jeopardize his relationship with her and her brother he knows he'll be leaving soon for deployment so is willing to enjoy the steamy encounters Vivian's offering as he doesn't think there will be time for their interludes to become something more powerful....and enjoyable he makes their time together! But unfortunately their relationship does become more profound as neither wants to let the other go. They want to see where things can lead and it's with a heavy heart and fear of the unknown that ends this story. Liam's immensely likable and supportive and his relationship with Vivian felt believable in its intensity and quick evolution due to their past history. He's truly heroic in relating his fears in how war is changing him and his final scenes with Vivian brought a tear to my eye.

    Also enjoyable are the friends surrounding them who are playful and supportive in their own ways that added realism to the story. I saw my own friends reflected in them as well and appreciated the humor they provided that balanced out the other heavier moments in the story. Just when things are getting good we have to deal with Liam's deployment and the ramifications of it. I look forward to seeing where things go for them in the future as this beginning glimpse of their HEA is immensely satisfying. In this emotional yet familiarly-themed package Ms. Lovell has grabbed hold of me and convinced me to come back for more.

    Vivian doesn't see the warning signs she is in an abusive relati

    Vivian doesn't see the warning signs she is in an abusive relationship. She thinks because he has never physically hurt her everything is fine. His jealousy gets out of hand one night and he calls her frigid and boring. She decides to end things. When she would go running back her friend Liam tells her how the relationship is poison to her. She decides to prove she isn't boring and makes Vivian's List. All the things she wants to do sexual. When Liam comes across the list he knows he is the only one who she should try them with. He cares for her but is afraid to cross the line. They both have past to get over and only together do they have the chance to be truly happy.




    Vivian is a beautiful girl who has had her self worth took from her. She is beaten down and really truly doesn't see it her self. She bgins to recover from the abusive relationship and other things with Liam's help. She really truly awakens her sexuality as the book progresses and her life begins to piece back together. She is a very sweet caring person. Liam seems like a hard ass but he has a soft spot for Vivian. He looks out for anyone he can and has for years. He has seen abuse and knows what it is like. He has seen many things that haunt him and he needs Vivian's help to get over them.




    This is a simply wonderful book. There is lots of steamy sex scenes but that is not all there is to the book. This shows how people can be in abusive relationships and not even know it. Both the main characters have been broken down and are so good at helping each other get over them. They heal each other without knowing realizing it. There friendship becomes more as they have always cared for each other but have been afraid to act on it. I love how they take something in themselves not even knowing how things will end. Both have such a good heart. I really can't wait to see more out of them as I hope it's not over. I want to know what becomes of them as I worry over Liam as I am sure Vivian does. Pick this up for an amazing story about two great people and watch them heal.

    HOLY MOLY!!

    I loved this book. The characters were great. Vivian's friends Katie & Chelsea cracked me up. I laughed so hard I cried. Liam has got to be just about one of the sweetest most considerate men ever. The chemistry between Liam and Viv was off the charts HOT! Their love for eachother was so obvious to me but it took them too long to realise it. The sex was smokin hot. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

    Very Hot Read

    This was a well written, spicy romance. It wasn't just about sex, there was actually a storyline. Vivian, the heroine, is in an unhealthy relationship. Her brother's best friend, Liam, a soldier on leave from Afghanistan, is trying to help her see the light. Liam stays with Vivian during his leave. What happens is a self-fulfilling journey for Vivian once her eyes are opened. It's a must read. Be prepared to change your knickers because there are some scorching scenes in there! I have a new found respect for mints.
