REVIEW: Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland

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…  




My first 5-star read of the year, and I couldn’t be happier!

If you read my other Vi reviews, or come across it, you’ll most likely say that I’m just saying the same things over and over again no matter what the storyline is. There is a reason for that. It’s because in my mind, Vi consistently uses a winning formula that showcases her characters in the most lovable way. She’s really found her lane, I say.

Just like her previous books, everything for me is on point here; from the cover to the first meeting to the humor to the heat to the conflict to the character growth to the flow of the story. Seriously, what more can I ask for?

Hunter is def BBF material. Not quite alpha, not quite beta, perhaps gamma? Doesn’t matter, you’ll love him! I know I do! Funny, sweet, thoughtful, sexy, perfectly imperfect… sigh… And Nat is a lovable heroine. You just want to support her actions and decisions. Hunter couldn’t have deserved a better heroine. Add of course, can’t forget the side characters who added their own flavour to the story.

I appreciated how the dual POV was laid out, learning about Hunter’s past. I admit it got me nervous as Vi seems to like throw in a kink into the system by throwing in OW/OM. But that’s how she rolls, I reminded myself, so that helped. And I really can’t think of anything I didn’t like about how the story unfolded. I enjoyed every moment with those 2.

Without a doubt, Vi is a one-click author for me. She does contemporary romance so well. A definite fave! This book is another perfect example. Highly recommend.
