What’s it about?

Five friends. Five stories. Welcome to The LOVER Show. Let’s begin with L:

Have you ever tried not liking a guy when your best friends decide you should like him? How about if that guy had the sexiest ass on the planet, and was your birthday-cake one-night-stand with icing on top?

London Reeves agrees that three years is a long time to live without sex, but one steamy hot night could never last longer than the morning after. Yet her four lunatic best friends disagree on that last one. The voices in her head disagree, too, and even her mother seems to think she’s crazy. And sexyass will not take a goddamn no for an answer. Now what exactly is a girl to do against that?

You can purchase a copy of this book on AmazonUS / AmazonUK.


I love love LOVED every minute of this book !

On her 27th birthday London goes out with her best friends Olivia, Valery, Eden and Ronnie (together their names make the ‘LOVER’ show). That night, she does something she’s never done before, she takes a guy home for a one night stand. The sex was a mind-blowing 10 she tells her friends later.

I’ve said it before, I’m not a big fan of sex in novels but here it was entirely permitted (it was also only one time in the beginning of the book). There was one big loooong excruciating build-up towards the act itself and one of the best, if not the best, that I’ve ever read in a book. Absolutely swoon-worthy. And Liam, oh Liam, he is one hot piece of man candy ! He has the most delicious brownies (London’s words), and he’s got that V that I find such a turn-on, but he’s not only the best God made on earth to look at, he’s also attentive and considerate, he’s funny and patient, he likes playing scrabble and adores brownies. You simply can’t not fall for him.

London doesn’t even know his name and she doesn’t expect to ever see him again, but of course Murphy has something to do with it. She tries to resist the attraction though and although he keeps looking her up and they have the best times together, she does everything she can to keep him at arm’s length. Their attraction was so sweet and they are so cute together. Her friends could see it, I could see it, only London doesn’t want to admit it.

The writing is just so good and funny, and I was also a fan of the different little me’s (angry me, horny me, happy me and smart me) that are present in London’s head and pop out and make comments from time to time. If I were to borrow her internal voices, then ANGRY ME would say: I can’t believe this novel only counted 174 pages, it was so much fun it should have been longer; SMART ME would say: the story was perfect the way it was but it’s far from being over, there’s still several other stories to read of the LOVER show, next up is Olivia and it seems she doesn’t have such a light-hearted story; HAPPY ME would say: it was so good, maybe I should read it again; and finally HORNY ME would say: Liam was divine, I want to lick his brownies too!

I received a free copy of this book from GenuineJenn in exchange for my honest opinion.

  1. Angry me, horny me, and smart me… Haha! That’s funny. Your review made me laugh, which means I must read this book. We have very similar tastes in romance novels, so I’m willing to bet I’ll love it, too. I’m adding this to Goodreads right now. I’ve been on a romance novel kick lately. I love a novel that has a good build up to the sex instead of tons of random sex all over the place and nothing more. It starts to become a bit much when that’s all you’re reading. And I love the title of this book. Grabbed my attention right away. Nice review!

    • Thank you so much! I can’t believe I can actually convince someone with one of my reviews to read a book. If I had a bucket list, I could really cross that one out! Oh, I certainly hope you’ll like it but I’m reading one now that might just top this one (Six of Hearts and it’s free!), review next week.

      • Haha! Yep, cross that one off the list. This review made me laugh. I already added the book and found it on Amazon. I’ll have to check that one out. I love free books! I was so excited to see this book for free with my Kindle Unlimited subscription. Well, I guess it’s not completely free, but free enough for me. 😉
