Hi Everyone! My name is Paul and I’m a recovering sex addict…
Paul McNeill loves sex. Good sex. Bad sex. Oral sex. Any kind of sex. You name it; he loves it. But Paul’s biggest passion is his greatest flaw. As a recovering sex addict, he’s been abstaining and managing his addiction for over two years. Now, all he wants is to fall in love and find that certain someone he can settle down with.
But when he finds himself on his knees on Elle Jacoby’s damp lawn, he knows there’s going to be trouble. Elle quickly becomes Paul’s biggest challenge yet. She’s instantly set him ablaze while he begs to be hosed down. As he gets to know her more, the flames burn even hotter.
How can he resist a hot divorcee who’s amped up to have all the fun she’s missed?
Stand-alone story-no cliffhangers. A sexy romantic comedy with heart for mature audiences only.
We meet Paul, he’s fixing this lady’s sprinkler system when her bush starts ringing and out she comes with her house phone in hand looking for her cell. Elle was a recent divorcee out on the prowl, while poor Paul is a recovering sex addict trying to find love. She wanted no part of love, and though he wanted EVERYTHING to do with sex, he wasn’t going to cave into that, until he had his love first.
While this isn’t the first romance book, I’ve read from the male character’s POV, this IS the first one I’ve read where it’s STRICTLY from his POV and it isn’t a companion book, or dual POV book. I really liked his character. For that matter I liked his family. They weren’t always likable, but when the chips were down, they were all right there being rocks for one another. I also liked Elle’s character too. And the wringer that she and the hero gets into just makes me love him even harder. Because good men exist even if they have checked pasts. And the fact that they inspire each other to be better than they once were, is awesome, and lacking in many romance books you read. I will also say that for a NAUGHTY boy, Paul is pretty straight-laced. He’s not nearly as kinky as I figured he’d be.
Ms. Clampett has a flare for bringing out a character. Though this is the first book of her’s that I’ve read, I can assure you it won’t be the last. She has written the naughtiest book that contained so LITTLE sex it’s not even funny. There was so much build up to the nookie that I was even saying to my book “OH GET IT ON!!!! C’MONNNN!!!!” Not in the eyeroll kind of way, but in a DUDE SURRUSLY!!!! But Ms. Clampett had me wanting to cheer their romance on, instead of trying to get to the “good parts”. So would I recommend it…yeah, I would. It’s even a little frustrating for the reader. But it’s worth the read. And oh heck no! It is NOT for those who get flustered at dirty talk or for those who aren’t old enough to be reading all that dirty talk.
