3,5 stars! Missy Blake aka M.N. Forgy tries her hand at comedy romance and doing well. After a much darker books Plus One is a light and funny story.
About the plot: Rae is left on the altar. Her fiance at the last moment changed his mind and ran off the church. What dumped in front of family and friends girl can do? Also escape as soon as possible. With the help comes ex-fiance friend, Max. He takes her away and they share one evening at inspiring talk.
When a year later they accidentally meet again and catching up, he came up with the brilliant idea to help each other by pretending relationship. They set the rules, but as it happens, things are getting messy.
Some thoughts: I enjoyed Max and Rae story and it quickly drew me in. It’s entertaining, a little immature but easy to like a couple. They both get burned, and now none of them want to take a chance again. But when they spend time together, things happen beyond their willpower. And when it happen, their sexy moments are burning hot.
“His reef blue eyes find mine and I get lost in them. They’re so much more than just blue, they take me away and fuck me for days.”
For me, however, the whole show stole a best friend of the heroine, Quinn. Her texts are something else and I really would like to read her story. She amused me to tears, when she says things as:
“Girl, you couldn’t be more disappointed than a virgin going home solo on prom night”
Despite some mystery and a little twist, it’s low on angst. Also has quite fast action. I just wish it was also more developed. Sometimes, some scenes could be extended rather than quickly changing. But it can also be an advantage, because there is not a moment of boredom.
Overall, it’s perfect if you are looking for a light, funny, and smoking hot romcom. Maybe even reading for one evening if you read fast. I’m cheering for yet another romantic comedy of the author and I can’t wait for Quinn’s book.
I turn around to ask for one of his shirts and find him shirtless and tugging down his jeans.
Holy back porn.
It’s outlined in muscle and is a golden tan. Holy shit he has lower back dimples too. My eyes skim along his bare skin, wishing it were my hands instead. My hands strangle themselves, my mouth parting to allow the labored breathing to pass.
His jeans drop to his feet, and he bends over to kick them off. That round ass on display for my pleasure. My eyes scan the white tight briefs cleaning to his tight—.
Wait, are those bananas?
“What are you wearing?” Using the back of my hand I try to hide my smile.
Standing upright he looks over his shoulder, a devilish look crosses his face.
“These?” He tugs on the elastic band of his briefs, making the banana prints dance. “They’re underwear,” he responds like I should know that.
“I know they’re underwear. I just didn’t peg you for a banana-wearing kind of guy,” I laugh again.
“I bring a whole new meaning to banana hammock, baby.” He turns and the smile on my face is wiped clean when I see the length and girth of that bulge in his underwear.
