WHY I READ IT
After reading To Love Jason Thorn I was hooked on Ella’s writing style. I also fell in love with Lucy and needed to see her get her own happy ending.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
So you may ask, who is Adam Connor? He is the recently divorced, Academy Award-winning actor who just moved in next door with his kid. He also happens to be an exquisite male specimen and the most infuriating sly bastard I’ve ever come across.
Let’s be honest here, wouldn’t you wanna take a peek over the wall to catch a glimpse of him, hopefully when he is naked? Wouldn’t you melt away after watching him work out as his five-year-old kid cheered him on? Do I even have to mention those abs, the big bulge in his pants, or that arm porn? Oh, wait, you would never spy on him? Sure…
While I was being thoughtful by not breaking and entering and was actually considering going over to offer him a shoulder—or maybe a boob or two—to cry on (y’know, because of his divorce), instead he had me thrown in jail after a small incident. Jail, people! He was supposed to grant me countless orgasms as a thank you, not a jail cell.
After that day, I was mentally plotting ways to strangle him instead of jumping his bones to make sweet love. So what if my body did more than just shiver when he whispered dirty little things in my ear? I can’t be held responsible for that. And when was the last time he’d kissed anyone anyway? Who’d enjoy a kiss with a side of heart attack?
Even if he and his son were the best things since sliced bread—and I’m not saying he was—I couldn’t fall for him. No matter what promises he whispered on my skin, my curse wouldn’t let us be. I wasn’t a damsel in distress—I could save myself, thank you very much—but deep inside, I still hoped Adam Connor would be the hero of my story.
I have loved Lucy since she stumbled into Olive’s room and used her boobs as pillows in To Love Jason Thorn. I was so excited that she got her own book!! She is snarky, sassy, hilarious, and extremely loyal. Watching her interact with each of the characters in this book we got a different Lucy each time. There was so much more depth to her in this book, it isn’t all laughter and karaoke nights. We get a glimpse into her past, her childhood, and unveil who she really was behind her mask of humor.
Adam was the perfect mix of sweet gentleman and sexy alpha. He is a dilf 100%. When he speaks to his son or speaks of him I get a little hot and bothered. He is the perfect kind of celebrity, the one who does, what he does, without feeling entitled. A lot of that likely had to do with how he was raised. He has this ferocity about him that made me anticipate what his reaction would be to the spitfire that is Lucy.
One of the best parts of this book was Aiden. Not all authors can write kids. Some include them in a book and they are more like an afterthought than an actual character. But Ella did an amazing job of making this cute little boy a focal point of the story.
I enjoyed this book immensely. It started a little bit slowly but, then really took off. The back and forth between Lucy and well everyone was hysterical. This story had no downs it just kept getting better and better the further in I got. There were so many unexpected twists and “holy crap” moments in this one I feel like I need to read it again just to make sure I got everything.
A great follow up to another amazing book. I would highly recommend To Love Jason Thorn and To Hate Adam Connor.
