Overview

Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland

From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

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...

Oh my!!!! I have a new book boyfriend in Hunter!!! I absolutely adored this book (which is no surprise because I love everything that Ms. Keeland writes. Natalia was such a strong woman (I wanted to be like her) to be able to continue with her life and put a brave face on every day after it all went to sh*t. This is a must read!!! I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!!!

The only time I put this book down was to dry my tears with a handkerchief while crying tears of joy. Thank you, Vi, for a wonderful story.

Natalia Rossi is in California for her best friend, Anna's wedding to Derek. Nat's thinking and talking with Anna at the rehearsal that maybe she can get lucky and find a one night stand after the crappy year she has had with her ex-husband in prision. Of course at that moment, Hunter Delucia walks up and that's where the fun begins. Nat is instantly attracted to Hunter and the two of them begin and cat and mouse game. The day after the wedding Nat wakes up in Hunter's bed and doesn't remember a thing. They did not have sex, but Hunter wanted her phone number since he travels to New York for work at times. Of course, she gives him the wrong number! A year later they see each other again when Anna and Derek have their first baby. Attraction still there? Yep! Cat and Mouse game still being played? Yep! When he asks for her real number, she gives him her moms figuring her Italian mother will scare him off. Imagine her surprise when Hunter shows up for Sunday dinner at her mom's! After Hunter explains he will be in New York for 2 months working, they finally start spending some time together just as friends. Even Nat's stepdaughter, Izzy is enchanted by Hunter. Quickly "just friends" turns into something more. It was such a fun, crazy ride watching these two go from flirty to in love. I just adored both of these characters. They both had issues from their pasts, but together they were able to get past them. Overall, I highly recommend this book. Great characters, great story....you can't go wrong!

Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland, is a fantastic, fun, romantic, well written page turner. It was so easy to fall in love with Hunter Delucia, he has a few issues and one of those being that he doesn't want to get tied up in a relationship. Well neither does the heroine Natalia Rossi, she really tries to fight her attraction to Hunter, but it doesn't work out so well. This is a must read for all romance lovers, there is some pretty heavy stuff in this book, but also some lighthearted fun. Not only did I laugh, cry, and swoon but I enjoyed ever page.

Hunter Delucia...what can I say?? even his name is hot! I was really surprised with this book. I laughed a lot reading it. The characters are amazing. All of them. It is mesmerizing to see Izzy blooming throughout the book. And the banter between Hunter and Natalia is hilarious. So, I was thinking I was just having a good time reading a light book. Poor little me... The truth is that underneath all that flirting, the story is sad. It's complicated. It's unfair. It's life... But I loved every single minute I dedicated to read this book. It reminded me, again, why Vi Keeland is one of my favourite authors.

5 Kiss Me CROWNS Based on the title and the synopsis, I had certain expectations when I opened this book, but let me tell you that it is nothing what I thought it would be. In fact, this story exceeded my expectations, and Sex, Not Love will be one of my favorite Vi Keeland books. Hunter is everything I love about a Vi Keeland hero. He is charismatic and oozes charm. Even when he is being cocky, he puts a smile on your face with his devilish and dirty comments. As the story progresses, readers get to see that there is more below the surface, and there are clearly ghosts from his past haunting him. The revelations about his past are not what I was expecting, but the characteristics provided a much needed layer to create complexity to his character. When this past detail is revealed, the motivation behind his decisions makes sense, and readers become even more sympathetic to his choices. I had so much respect for Natalia based on the decisions she makes in this novel. She constantly puts others ahead of herself, and I love that she takes in people who aren’t necessarily her responsibility. Her finally decision at the end of the novel, only solidified my original feelings towards her, making sure that I yearned for her to get her happy ending with Hunter. This story is a surprisingly slow burn. Even so, there is a lot of chemistry to keep readers engaged with their story. The conversations, the banter, and the flirty, dirty talk make the sexual tension authentic between them, and these two get to know each other before getting physical, making their love more believable. Vi Keeland makes this couple so likable that readers hearts will ache for the end of the eight weeks, and just like the characters, readers aren’t really sure why it is all happening. Her choice of conflict is not only perfect for story she created, but it also serves to develop the theme of loving and living to the max. Sex, Not Love will be one of my favorite Vi Keeland books. It is sexy and fun, but more than that is a story with heart and a real message about living and loving with all the time you are given.

This book was awesome. I laughed out loud and shed some tears while reading this book. I didn't want to put it down, once I started it. I loved the banter and the crassness of the characters. It's sex, not love or wait is it love, not sex?

I love all Vi's books, but this one was even more incredible. I love the banter between Nat and Hunter. Add in the steamy scenes and love and it was a masterpiece.

6 Hearts Sex, Not Love is Vi Keeland's newest masterpiece. I can't even express how in love with this book I am. It's perfection. It's my favorite book of hers and I'm not sure I'm ever going to recover from Hunter Delucia. I mean, seriously. He's Italian. He's sexy. He has a filthy mouth. He's sweet. And underneath the arrogant exterior is the man with a heart of gold. He says all the right things with sincerity. And when he set his sights on Natalia, he's not going to give up until she's his. Nat knows men like Hunter, or so she thinks. She deflects his advances by walking away, giving him the wrong number and just being unavailable. Until he decides he going to put himself in her space until she gives in. Poor Natalia. She never had a chance! She's been hurt before so she's not looking for long term, so being with Hunter might be just the thing she needs. Her body has wanted him since first sight, it's her head that's getting in the way. When she decides she can't say no anymore, it's on. Oh man, is it on! Can Hunter and Natalia really do sex, not love? What happens when their hearts want in on the action? I loved this book. So. Much. I. Can't. Even. Hunter is everything. Sexy, pushy, funny, sweet and dirty. Natalia is gorgeous, hilarious, also Italian :), and such a good mom. I loved all the secondary characters especially Izzy. She was so great! I laughed until I snorted, cried until tears were streaming down my face and have never been more relieved in my life. I quickly became attached to these characters and I'm already planning a re-read. Overall, it's my first 6 heart read of the year and I'm not sure if anything will top it!

Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland is another fabulous, amazing, heart-wrenching, loving tale from one of my favorite authors. A standalone romance told in dual POV between the hot, dirty-talking, persistent Hunter Delucia and the beautiful, feisty, independent Natalia Rossi. Hunter has issues. Deep, dark, emotional issues. His character has depth, heat and passion. He aims all that charisma directly in Natalia's direction at the wedding of their mutual best friends. While the chemistry is there, so much so, they practically sizzle, she keeps him at a distance. Well, except for the few times they kiss and she starts to melt. He is determined to win her though, so much so when she gives him her phone number and it turns out to be her moms number, he ingratiates himself with the matriarch of the Rossi family and winds up at Sunday dinner. Natalia has been burned. Badly! Her ex-husband is in federal prison for a Ponzi scheme and she has full custody of her 15 year old stepdaughter. Leaving New York for California for her best friends wedding was a nice break from reality. Being passionately kissed by the best man? Mind blowing and a little bit frightening. The level of chemistry between them is something she is NOT looking for and backs away from, rapidly. The two of these characters together, just wow! Hunter is persistent in his pursuit of Nat but also in his need for it to just be about sex. Not love. But the best laid plans often go awry. They both fall for each other but still something is keeping them apart. Gah! Vi's books are ALWAYS romantic and HOT and amazing, and the underlying seriously emotional impacts that life can have on people and their relationships is something she doesn't shy away from and writes with such grace. I loved this! Enjoy!
