Publisher's Summary

Memphis Love knows three things.
Money.
Sex.
Women.

As long as it has a pond for him to dip his pole into, he's game, and he doesn't stick to just one pond for his fishing trips either.

The small beach town he lives in doesn't offer much for job opportunities or, at least, lucrative ones. He relies on his body, the pole, and stage. Oh, and the after-hours clients.

Iris, his best after-hours customer, takes him on a yearly cruise with her friends. He's there for one purpose and one purpose only...their boy toy.

Memphis is no fool. A two-week, all-paid cruise to soak up the sun and sights is a no brainer. Only thing is he didn't expect a little ray of sunshine on the ship this year. Raylan Moore has the power to rattle everything he once believed.

The doctor is in; he's willing, able, and ready to please. Dr. Love has the cure to your lovesick blues - only this time, maybe he's the one needing the healing.

Funny one liners

This was my first book by this author. It took me a while to get into it. The characters in the beginning just weren't gelling for me. But, the fun part came when the focus was on Memphis and Raylin in the latter portion of the book. That was where so many corny and cheesy one-liners came out that they were really funny. The book got more playful and focused, and the characters more likable.

The narration on this was enjoyable. I have no idea how Aaron Shedlock was able to do those one-liners without cracking up. But, he delivered them in the corny, cheesy way I assume they were intended, which made them that much funnier.

Bad Pickup Lines Galore!

I really enjoyed this HJ Bellus story. I wasn't really sure what to expect knowing Memphis Love's profession but it was really a fun story. The bad pickup lines were funny and the cast of characters were great! Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks were fantastic as always. Great listen.

Memphis LOVE can ROCK my Boat :-)

First audiobook by this author, I think first book of any sort.
Anyway, would have happily listened to it in one session if I had the time.
It was entertaining but some parts I felt moved way to fast, I understand it all happens on a 10 day crews but it just didn't all gel for me personally.
Either way two of my favourite narrators made it very enjoyed for me as a listener.

Wasted my listen!

I should've stopped early in the first few chapters, but I thought it would get better. It didn't. There are lines like "for the love of dog bones" or "Holy bat cave Batman" which was too corny for me. No drama, insta-love of a gigalo for another woman while escorting a MILF on a cruise. I like Rom-com but not this one. A young college student might love this but not me. I'm glad I didn't use a credit (Romance page) because it is not credit worthy.

Two Great Narrators Paired on a Fun Listen

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. Even though I have purchased several of HJ Bellus eBooks and audible upgrades, I've only had time to listen to the first of the Reckless Series that Love Sick is a spin-off from. Listening to Love Sick reminded me of the writing that I originally enjoyed so much that lead to my previous purchases after listening to Dirty: The Reckless Series, Book 1 in the first place. In fact after listening to Love Sick narrated by two awesome and very professional audiobook performers, Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock, I went back and re-listened to Dirty: The Reckless Series, Book 1 for the second time and finally on to Filthy: The Reckless Series, Book 2 since Love Sick mentions my beloved characters from the Reckless Series. This books story reminded me why I missed them. Now I can't wait for Scandal: The Reckless Series, Book #3 to be on audio so I can finish the series and see what happens with Chloe. I purchased the eBook for Scandal but haven't had time to sit and read with my eyeballs... LOL Love Sick is very entertaining, and if you love the characters and their crazy world, you will love the original Reckless Series. I would love to see more books written as spin-offs from the Reckless Series. I highly recommend this audiobook.

Holy One Liners Batman

Not my usual fare, but since it was Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks, I decided to give it a listen. Although I was really not sure that I could stomach Memphis Love at first, he sort of grew on me and I got into the story. The one liners and pick up lines were hilarious. Hotness, humor and finally redemption. HJ Bellus wrote great characters. I hated Iris, but I thought Memphy's momma was a hoot.

As I said, I started this book because of the narrators, and they did not disappoint me (although I would have loved to hear this in duet narration rather than dual). Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks brought the characters to life and hilarity. Is it worth a credit -- YES.

Hilarious Sexy Romance!

This sexy, fast paced story was hilarious! It was filled with quirky characters looking for a good time, sexy passion, and cheesy pickup lines. Memphis is unapologetic on the choices he's made to make a better life for him in the future. He just wasn't counting on meeting the love of his life on his last hurrah. Raylin is the responsible one of her friends. But Memphis has brought out her daring side, allowing her to feel safe in taking risks. She just wasn't expecting the Golden Girls to stand in her way! Narrators, Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock were fabulous delivering the corny lines that made this book so fun. Their timing and delivery was spot on making these characters come to life. This was a fun, sexy romcom.

Love Sick

Any additional comments?

**Warning** lots of sex and sexual innuendo, its really steamy. The story is fast paced and moves very smoothly. I prefer a bit more story, but when telling the story of a male gigolo I can see where that would be out of the question. The one liners are very funny and keep the story moving. Her friends are quite unique, and actually so are all the characters.

Falling overboard! Swoon and laugh!

I have never listened to an HJ Bellus book before, and this won't be my last. From start to finish, this book brought a smile to my face and a blush. Meeting Memphis in the first chapter, I was a little hesitant, his character is brash, cocky and just so full of himself, I was thinking that it was going to be a long book...but it was anything but long. Once you get to know him, and his back story, you fall for the man, just as all the women do! Boarding a cruise for his job with "The Golden Girls", he had no intention of meeting anyone who would change his life. In his lap(literally), falls Raylon. From that point on, the story flies. I have to say, between the hot scenes and the laugh out loud pick up lines, I couldn't stop listening to this book! It was good fun.

This combination of Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock as the narration team for the book was incredible. Two of my favorites together bringing the book to life! Aaron Shedlock is the perfect sexy Memphis, his timing and delivery are spot on. Tracy Marks always orients her characters in a way that you feel you know them making them completely relatable. The two together are magnificent and can't wait to hear more from them.
