“The second the test-the-sexy-scenes offer landed in my lap, I said yes.
After all, I’ve been damn curious about a few things I’ve read in romance novels. Do buttons truly go flying across the floor when you rip off a guy’s shirt? Is staircase sex hella hot or does it leave you with a big old bruise mark on your back? And don’t even get me started on all that panty shredding, and whether it even works.
Time to find out as I embark on Project Sexy Scenes Research, at the request of my hotshot book editor bestie.
All I need is a willing scene partner. Enter Tristan, my best guy friend. The witty, tell-it-like-it-is, bearded hottie volunteers for the experiment.
He’s also the guy who gave me the most devastating, toe-curling kiss of my life ten years ago. But nothing has happened since then.
And nothing will come between my panties and our friendship now since we have a plan to keep it PG.
But once the buttons start flying, all bets are off…”
This book is all over the place with steam!
It’s like one of those romances that you can’t tell whether you should roll on the floor laughing or just suck up all the steaminess. Between the dialogue and how the characters physically interact with each other, there is just so much serious tension yet comedic twists.
We follow a friends-to-lovers trope dipped in a fun, sexy twist when she comes up with an idea to act on the scenes she’s read in all the romance novels. From there, we are thrown into a wild ride of a book.
I gave this one 3 out of 5 stars. While I enjoyed the serious-yet-not-so-serious romance, it wasn’t a story that fully captivated me. If you are looking for a crazy rom-com that will be sure to have you cracking a smile amongst all the steamy moments, definitely pick this one up!
