Title: Sweet Spot
Author: Stella Rhys
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 30, 2017
Our first meeting as neighbors was screwed from the start.
He was hot. I was naked. And we had no chance in hell at ever being platonic.
I’ll be the first to admit that I live at extremes. After going ten years locked in what felt like a dysfunctional marriage, I’m now decidedly boy-free. In nearly three years I’ve had no boyfriends, no flings, no dates and no sex. For the sake of my dream career, the sacrifice has been easy.
At least it was.
Until Lukas came along.
He’s rude, gorgeous, arrogant – a stone-carved wall of muscle and distraction. He’s everything I know to avoid but there’s no avoiding your next-door neighbor. Oh yeah. The man now lives three steps from me and to make matters worse, he crashed into my life while I was soaked in the tub. Mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I ran out exposed. He looked. He laughed.
And then I locked myself out.
In short, Lukas Hendricks was smirking, swaggering trouble from the start. And me?
I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed.

Yes, I started this book at the crazy hour of 11PM and it held me until my eyes were dropping and I couldn't keep them open any longer...With only a few hours of sleep, my mind kept going to this book while I was at work. Once home, fed and relaxed..I was back reading until the end...
And I was impressed for a number of reasons...
From the start, I was drawn in by the very clever opening. All of the necessary ground work was laid...I understood from the get go who these characters were, their humor, comfort level and insane attraction to each other. Was it quick... yeah... but at the same time... For me I was a willing participant.
Each of these people had careers; they were fully formed and focused in what they did and mostly wanted in their lives, professionally.... He was more established then her... but both very capable.
Each had their friend support system and the interaction of concern, kidding and care worked. These secondary characters made me curious and after finishing the book, I wanted to know they will have other stories coming... focused on them.
The progression of the relationship had a sense of what could actually be...lustful, scared of what feelings were surfacing, fun, hesitant, resolved in protecting the heart and then realizing what all of it meant.
And when I mentioned Lustful...I am talking some very hot, very sexy encounters...mental foreplay...blatant want from both; with him awakening her to ask for what she needed and him realizing what she gave him.
But what was the surprise attack for me was the intense heart of it all... both of these people had past traumas which both could understand...I was truly moved by what each one had experienced and it gave real weight to the story.
And for me a non angsty gal...it was the way these two were able to handle everything without over the top drama or jumping to conclusions which I appreciated...
So although I haven't really given you anything specific about the actual story..
I would say if you like:
Banter & Hotness...
When two people are connecting and it really works
And some very sexy times which will make you think of your apartment hallway differently...
Then give it a go...I am very glad I did. Now I just need to catch up on my sleep.

Stella Rhys is an author of contemporary romance and can't help but write it hot, steamy and borderline filthy (just kidding, it's flat-out filthy). Writing aside, she lives for coffee, the Yankees and cooking recipes way out of her league. She was born and raised in New York and now lives there with her husband and charmingly entitled fur baby.
