There are so many reasons to love this book; the ginger (squee-ginger!!) sexy officer fantasy mixed with the perfect tattooed EMT makes this the feel good book to read this spring! Not only has Lauren Blakely created the perfect book boyfriend: Muscled Inked Compassionate Family Oriented Fantastic All Around Kisser Derek is the ultimate unicorn of book boyfriends! The Feel Good Factor will make you smile the entire time. When Derek McBride slightly speeds into town for the first time, it’s not the typical police officer that pulls him over. Instead it’s a hot redhead who becomes the fantasy who consumes his dreams. She also becomes his landlord, which quickly complicates his life. It’s hard to bring those fantasies to life when Perri is the woman who provides the roof over his head. “Holy redheaded lady-cop fantasy”-Derek Perri Keating isn’t looking for a relationship, a new tenant-yes, a promotion at work-yes, a relationship-no. When Derek rolls into town he just happens to check off a lot of her boxes when it comes to her type of guy; flirty, tattooed, bad boy. However, when he shows on her doorstep, as her new renter, after a serious makeout session, things get complicated. “He’s the stuff of panty-melting ovary explosions”-Perri With rules in place Derek and Perri decide they can be adults and live under the same roof. Keeping their hot-for-each-other emotions under control, but also still practicing for the upcoming kissing contest which could mean, not only the promotion Perri is desiring, but also a chance to raise money for first responders. It’s a sinful win-win. Even with their hectic schedules, they experience a side of domesticality, they push their flirting to the limits, and their kissing game goes to new levels. The passion between them burns and burns until they ignite. There is no going back and there finally becomes a point where neither of them want to. What do you do when you don’t want a relationship, but you really want the person you feel everything for?

The Feel Good Factor by Lauren Blakely did exactly that, it made me feel good. I love the fact that both Perri and Derek are both first responders. Perri a police officer and Derek a paramedic. When Perri pulls a hot as heck motorcycle riding tattooed bad boy over for speeding, there is no denying the chemistry between them. It is so fun to watch this story unfold, because in a small town, you never know who or what will happen. These two are a match made in heaven even when they are both adamant that they don’t want a relationship. Every character in this book will put a smile on your face. The relationships between family and friends is just one one the many reasons I love reading Lauren’s books!

This book was the most amazing entertaining and leave a smile on my face book you will EVER read! Plus with the delicious man on the cover, you cant help but drool!!! I mean seriously, envisioning Derek as him was not a hard task, nope not one bit!!! LOL The characters, the steamy sizzling tension from the get go and the rather witty banter made this an incredibly fun read! What made this book so flipping good were the characters, the way they were within their jobs, with their friends and family! This story had so much heart and soul in it I felt like my heart could burst! I would definitely want people like them in my life and I really cannot wait for the next book! Im in awe of the author for writing this heartwarming read! Dilemmas, drama, beautiful friendships and a whole lot of heat made for a really really really great read! You should definitely 1 click!

This was really good overall. I’m giving it 3.5 out of 5 stars. This review is for an ARC, and reflects my honest opinion. First off, oh em geeeeee I swooned hardcore over Derek. A sexy, tattooed biker who loved his family, and was amazing with kids?!? I think my heart (and ovaries) burst from everything he embodied in this book. I also liked Perri a lot. She was sweet, sassy, and despite her tough outer shell, she was a softie. Another thing I really enjoyed was seeing some characters from previous books making appearances. I could never be a cop, EMT, or firefighter, but I’m so glad there are people like these characters that can handle the pressure and danger of those jobs. We saw several calls Derek went on, but I honestly thought we’d see more of Perri on the job besides being in the precinct and talking to her boss/coworker. I expected more danger for sure! I was debating 4 stars for this. I enjoyed it, and Lauren’s books are always fast reads, but this didn’t resonate with me as much as some of her others have. The connection between these two was a mixture of slow burn with hot and heavy. I didn’t feel like any obstacles were in place besides their own stubbornness. Plus, while I liked this one, there was a lot of day to day stuff without anything super exciting going on. I was expecting something dramatic to happen, and it didn’t. Definitely not a bad read, but not my favorite either.

THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR by Lauren Blakely is a contemporary, adult, stand alone erotic, romance story line focusing on paramedic Derek McBride, and police officer Perri Keating. Perri and Derek were first introduced in the author’s Best Laid Plans. THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR is part of a series of interconnected by stand alone romance tales. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. NOTE: Some of the events of THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR cross over and run parallel to the events of BEST LAID PLANS. Told from dual first person perspectives (Perri and Derek) THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR follows the roommates to lovers relationship between paramedic Derek McBride, and police officer Perri Keating. Derek’s arrival in Whiskey Hollows, California is met by police officer Perri Keating when our motorcycle-riding hero prefers speed to following the rules. While his brother in law serves in the Middle East, Derek transfers to California to help his sister and her three young, rambunctious children. Needing a place to stay Derek soon discovers that his new landlord and roommate is none other than Officer Perri Keating, the sexy cop who pulled him over for driving too fast. With a fund raiser on the horizon, Perri seeks out our hero in an effort to procure the winning kiss. What ensues is the building relationship and romance between Perri and Derek, and the potential fall-out as Perri struggles with a lack of direction in both her private and professional life. Perri Keating is attracted to the look of a bad boy and Derek McBride’s tattoos and muscles fit the bill. Neither Perri nor Derek is looking for a serious relationship, but the heart wants something different when emotions get involved. Agreeing to a ‘friends with benefits’ type of relationship as they practice for the upcoming fund-raiser, our couple will develop feelings that threaten their non-relationship status, and any potential happily ever after. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. There are a large number of colorful and sassy secondary and supporting characters including Derek’s sister Jodie and her three children; police chief Jeff Jansen and his wife Theresa; fellow EMS paramedics Henry Granger, Hunter, and Perri’s brother Shaw Keating, and their parents Gail and Sam, as well as Perri’s friends Vanessa, and Arden and Gabe Harrison (Best Laid Plans); Vanessa and Shaw’s story line is next in NOBODY DOES IS BETTER. THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR is a story of friendship, family, desire and love. The premise is entertaining and energetic; the characters are feisty and flirty; the romance is spicy and hot. Lauren Blakely pulls the reader into a seductive and breath taking look at a passionate romance with a happily ever after.

4.5☆ Someone need to tell me where all the Dereks are in this world because he is perfect! I absolutely loved his character and love his heart. He is such a genuinely good guy who happens to be dirty, which really is the best. I really enjoyed how strong of a woman Perri is. She has such a good heart and she is trying to be the best she can. These two have sizzling chemistry and I love how they fit together. Their story was fun and cute and I throughly enjoyed it!

The Feel Good Factor was a cute friends with benefits/roommates to lovers romcom. It had all the things I love about Lauren Blakely's books - a sexy and swoony hero, a strong and intelligent heroine, fantastic secondary characters, and a story that just makes my heart happy. I really loved the banter and push and pull between Perri and Derek. They have instalust right away, but the real chemistry occurred when they got to know each other beyond the physical. Derek was such a teddy bear with his nieces and nephew. I loved seeing that softer and gentler side to him. I did not blame Perri one bit for her ovaries exploding at the sight of Derek in full "dad mode". LOL One of my favorite parts of the story was the friendship between Perri, Arden, and Vanessa. I loved how supportive, understanding, and loyal they were to each other. It's clear that these ladies would do anything and everything for their friends and I appreciated that Lauren Blakely took time to highlight this special relationship. It also helped to set up the next book/novella featuring Perri's brother, Shaw, and her BFF, Vanessa. I did find the story fairly predictable, but the conflict Perri and Derek faced at the end felt true to their characters and their experiences. Plus, it set the stage for an epic romcom style finale. The epilogues will have you grinning ear to ear and Lauren Blakely fans are sure to enjoy this newest addition! *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

Perri is my kind of heroine. Her strength, her sass, and her intelligence are qualities that allow her to go head-to-head with her male co-workers. But regardless of Perri’s need for no distractions or her desire to focus solely on her career as a cop, advancing through the ranks and holding her own in a male-dominated world, she can’t help but be attracted to Derek, and when they become roommates, she can longer deny that Derek just might be worth the distraction. The idea that there’s more about a person than his outward appearance applies for Derek. He may look like the quintessential tattooed bad boy - one who rides a motorcycle, has a filthy mouth, and a dirty mind - but there’s so much more to this driven EMT, and Lauren Blakely does a great job illustrating all of his layers and why Derek is the man Perri wants and needs to make her feel good forever. Roommates who become lovers can be both a blessing and a curse…I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s so damn good when you’re in the thralls of passion and it’s always a good thing when someone else supplies you with orgasms, but the fallout of this kind of situation can lead to more than just hurt feelings, and while it seemed like both Perri and Derek knew what they were getting into, anything can happen when feelings become a part of what’s supposed to be only a fling. Any time I pick up a Lauren Blakely romantic comedy, I know I’m in for a quirky, sweet, steamy, and hilarious read and Blakely does not disappoint in her newest release, The Feel Good Factor, and let me tell you, she couldn’t have crafted two better characters as her leading man and lady than Perri and Derek. The sexual tension that surrounds them resonates from the pages and it’s clear that it’s not a matter of IF, but WHEN these two will finally give into their attraction and see just how good they can make one another feel. 4 Poison Apples

Holy wow are Derek and Perri HOT!!! Their chemistry was just leaping off the page from the word go. I was immediately sucked into their flirtation and it was so palpable I thought they were real people that I was watching in person. I loved Derek's cocky attitude, filthy mouth but super sweet attitude with his nieces. And he cooks! Seriously, perfect man aka book boyfriend right there. And he loved that Perri was a cop and found her hot because of it. Some men aren't as attracted to a strong woman but Derek definitely is. And Perri. She is a stronger woman than I am. Multiple times in the book when things are going down, Perri just steps away. How do you back away from that temptation more than once! Definitely a re-read for when I need a hot spicy book!

This book was just the perfect read for me!!! Oh, my word! I can’t express how much I truly loved this book. It’s perfectly titled that’s for sure. No angst, no drama involving third parties and absolutely no hating on the H/`h. Derek was just a down-to-earth character with a ‘bad boy’ image, minus the reputation. This man looks like sex on a stick, he may talk the talk and by god, does he walk the walk, but that’s where the ‘bad’ ends. He’s in insta-lust/ love with Perri from the moment the Lucky Falls police officer pulls him over on his way into town. The chemistry was scorching and hit from that initial encounter and only got hotter the longer they spent together. Being housemates didn’t help matters and they explosive connection they had when they gave in was just awesome. Loved picking up with previous characters from the earlier books too. All in all, a perfect read for a weekend with no plans. Or, any other day of the week, lol. one-Click today, and get ‘The Feel Good Factor’ for yourself.

This book has the feel good factor! This book made me feel so good, made me smile and made me swoon! I loved this book, and all the characters inside it! There was insta-lust between Perri and Derek, and I am always good with that! Their chemistry sizzles so hot throughout the whole book. I adored Perri - she was an intelligent, strong, independent woman with a strong sense self-worth who loved her job, family and friends but struggled with admitting her feelings and being vulnerable. Derek was, in my opinion, the perfect specimen of man! He was confident (if not a little cocky but could back it up!), smart, sexy, loved his family but was afraid to get his heart broken again. As I said, I even loved all the secondary characters in this book. This book is a perfect, fun, sexy, quick read that had me engaged the whole time! I highly recommend this romance!

4.5 Feeling So Good Stars! I am falling in love with all the residents of Lucky Falls! Derek is the new hot, sexy EMT badboy with a heart of gold. He just moved to town to help his sister and her kids. He is just coming out of a bad relationship and isn't looking for another one. But when he gets pulled over by a sexy local officer, their undeniable attraction can only be described as dirtier, more carnal, and red-hot desire! Perri is a police officer with her sites set on a promotion, and doesn't have time for a relationship either, but this Mr. McHotPants is definitely her type. No matter how forbidden their relationship should be, they are both adults and choose the Feel-Good factor. Derek is so swoony being sweet one moment and then so deliciously dirty in others. Perri is smart, sassy, and honorable. I loved all the fun, sweet, and steamy reasons and moments they have together. They are so perfect together with their quick banter, soft hearts, and explosive chemistry. I also enjoyed catching up with past friends and family, especially Perri's brother, Shaw, and can't wait for his story! This book is another brilliant, clever, sexy, Blakely romance that will have you Feeling Oh So Good!

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** Lauren Blakely has done it again by giving us a great story with plenty of feeling and humor! Perri is a police officer in the small town where she lives. She's working hard to get the promotion she wants and outside of her work, all she really has time for is her friends. She doesn't have time to date and she also doesn't want it to mess with her focus! When Derek comes to town to help his sister with her three kids while her husband is deployed, he meets Perri nearly as soon as he hits the city limits and the chemistry between them is instantaneous! The EMT needs a place to stay and ironically, it ends up being the room over Perri's garage that he is going to rent. When Perri asks Derek to help her with a kissing contest she's going to enter, the two end up "practicing" and as you can imagine, the chemistry between them continues to grow. While both of them don't want to be in a relationship, are they going to be able to curb the growing feelings they have for one another? I loved Derek and how amazing he was with his nieces and nephew. He was a wonderful uncle and his selflessness to help his sister was a sexy trait. I also loved that Perri was a strong woman working to succeed in a male driven occupation. The two were a great mix as they were both strong, but balanced one another out and the chalkboard was an amazing part of this story that I loved as well. Another winner by Lauren Blakely!
