It’s been twelve years since I’ve seen him, but loathing Emmett Hoult still runs in my blood. Thanks to the hell he wreaked on my teenaged life, I’ve avoided the prick like the plague. But desperate times call for desperate measures, and after a fire destroys my apartment during the most important week of my life, I’m suddenly as desperate as they come.
Hence the roommate situation.
It’s his summer home. His family said he wouldn’t be around. They said I’d never run into him.
But oh, did I run into Emmett Hoult.
And in the worst way possible.
I didn’t expect to see her ever again, let alone the way that I did.
But now that she’s back in my life, I’m not screwing things up. She still hates me — I know that — but it won’t stop me from chasing the only two goals I’ve made for this summer.
Making things right.
And making her mine.
ARC Review: So dirty, and so good
Aly and her friend Evie have opened the Hampton’s newest summer hotspot and the press is coming. But she needs to look good for the photos and that means sleep. Evie drags her out to a club to help her with her insomnia, because only 2 things get her exhausted enough to sleep all night: dancing, and sex. After a wardrobe malfunction, Aly meets a gorgeous man who meets Evie’s “must do” criteria. He takes her back to his place, and after a hot and heavy scene in the car, they arrive; it’s the house owned by the guy she grew up with whom she now hates, and her home for the summer. Dat dat daaaaaa!
Emmett is nothing like she remembers him. He’s quieter, more dedicated, and even more sexy. But her hatred is based on memories altered to save herself from a truth. Facing reality, and her attraction to Emmett, shakes her world to the core. Can they be friends and live together without either killing each other or falling into bed? What happened to him that changed him so much? Please come find out. I promise you’ll love the trip.
Man, the steam starts right at the get-go. Stella Rhys has made a great addition to her works. The heat between these two was amazing and the sex scenes, while descriptive, were not graphic or off-putting. The writing style was well-developed. I felt there was a bit of a lack of closure regarding Aly’s family, but I found this story to be touching and thoroughly enjoyed the journey. I’ve earmarked Sweet Spot for future reading.
