After a crazy night where we were both pretending to be someone else, I’ve found myself immersed in the fun of the fling.

Problem is, I’m positive he’s the exact opposite of husband material, and that is a serious issue for someone who is fixated on finding her happily ever after.

Now I’d just like to know how close to self-destruction I have to get before I find the will to quit Jude Winslow.

OMG, I had no idea how much I need this book! It was my first Max Monroe title but won’t be my last and it won’t be the last Winslow brother I read about 😊

First off, I totally just picked this book on a whim. We were headed on a road trip and the audiobook was available from my library so I gave it a go.

Oh boy, I had no idea how HOT and steamy this book was going to be. Thank goodness I had my Airpods in so the whole family couldn’t hear what I was listening to!

You first meet Jude and Sophie at a swanky club where Sophie is attending her sister’s bachelorette party. Jude has taken a bet with an exotic dancer saying he could totally do better and so he ends up giving Sophie quite the lap dance.

From that moment, it is ON for these two who end up having steamy rendezvous all over NYC where Sophie accumulates one amazing O after another.

She’s jumping in with two feet even though she’s looking for “the one” and Jude has always been a man about fun who shys from commitment.

Of course the more steamy times they hang out together, feels start to take hold and that’s when they have to face the music.

If I had to describe this book, I’d call it an opposites attract, really fun erotic romance. It’s erotic because their relationship started off and really was based in the bedroom (or wherever they were getting it on).

I’m totally adding this to my best erotic novels list because I’ve never read such a fun and light erotic romance novel and I think a lot of people who love that category of romance will enjoy it! I definitely did.

So you definitely have to be up for something really steamy and yet really fun with this one.

I thought the writing was really great and as the start to a series, it also gave me just enough about the Winslow family to want to read all about the other brothers finding love.

Kudos to Max Monroe for writing a book that totally drew me in and was such a delight to read.

I highly recommend it!
