This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

When a psychic tells Natalie Nixon her life is about to be upended by a mysterious stranger, she laughs it off. After all, she has everything she's ever wanted - a successful bakery, the perfect boyfriend, and the keys to her dream house. Who could possibly make her want to throw all that away?

Then Miles Haas comes back to town. But he's no stranger - they've known each other since high school. Plus he's around only for the summer, he's still a shameless playboy, and he makes a living writing articles for a men's magazine with titles like "Should You Bang the Boss' Daughter? A Flowchart" and "Butt Stuff for Beginners: A Field Guide".

Except he makes her laugh like no one else, smells like heaven, and wears those panty-melting glasses. But he's not the man of her dreams, and she's not about to abandon everything she's worked so hard for just for a little fun. She's not that crazy...or is she?

Some sort of awesome!

This "Some Sort Of" series is such a fun and easy listen. It still has angst but not the "biting your nails" kind of angst, more like the "oh I hope they end up together" angst.

Happy endings and witty writing are written all over this series and I'm absolutely in love with it.

Nelson Hobbs has a little bit of a hitch in his breath that grates on me and Lucy Malone sounds too old for these characters but I am being nit picky because they are completely believable and easy to listen to.

IT'S FUN, HOT, ADDICTIVE & A SWEET LOVE STORY

This is a really enjoyable light friends to lovers story - Natalie and Miles grew up together, have shared so many memories and, as adults, realize the other's strengths and flaws. Natalie is loving, determined, single-minded and successful, she's got her own Bakery, owns her own house and has had one boyfriend for the last ten years.... but she's hoping that he'll be popping the question real soon. Deep down Natalie knows things aren't right between them but she thinks it will change..... well it does but not in the way she was thinking because her best friend Miles comes back into her life just when she needs him most.

Miles is a handsome, funny, no strings Playboy who writes blogs all about his many and varied sexcapades and, although he's always fantasized about Natalie, he's never done anything about it because she wants the whole marriage, white picket fence, love and babies life and he's just exactly where he wants to be - carefree, loving life and with definitely no commitments. But when Natalie needs cheering up he's there to help and it's not long before the sexual chemistry that's been simmering between them for years dramatically boils over.... and the outcome is a sexfest that neither one was expecting.... but both thoroughly enjoyed. However, Miles can't see himself changing even though he loves Natalie and Natalie doesn't want to change Miles even though she loves him too - sentiments that neither one shared with the other.... but then the impossible happens that changes everything.

This was such a fun listen and very very sexy too as these two lovers enjoyed dirty talking, witty banter and a close bond that only they were destined to destroy. It was light, didn't have a lot of angst and was slightly predictable but even that didn't spoil this charming and oh so addictive listen. They were soul-mates and perfect for each other but both of them had to bend a little before either of them could see it. There was romance, lots and lots of sex with a bit of lighthearted bondage/spanking and tender times too as these two childhood friends finally turned their relationship into a loving lifelong commitment with a sweet HEA. Loveable main characters, two close loving Sisters and the update of Skylar and Sebastian's wedding (book 1). Told from both POV's, the narration was really good and this could easily be a standalone listen.... but book 1 is equally as good too.

Worth a credit? A contemporary feel good romance that I grinned my way through and left me with a smile on my face... so YES, IMO, a very creditworthy listen.

VERY CUTE ROMANCE

I'd purchased this without reading the details because book 1 was INCREDIBLE, only to realize this was about a different Nixon sister! Although this book was good, it wasn't off the charts great like the first. I loved Miles' character, super funny, and his kink was EPIC and oh so delicious to read, whereas Natalie was little tame for my taste. All that said, I give this one a strong 4-stars because overall it was well written, and I'm a sucker for love stories that are born of lifelong friendships like Miles' and Natalie's.

Pretty good

I like this series. The characters are well described and feel real. The hot scenes sizzle. The voice actors are amazing.

2.5 Stars

I enjoyed the first book in the series, but sadly this one missed the mark in many ways. First, I didn't like the psychic schtick in the beginning that sort of sets the stage for Natalie and Miles' romance. Next, their romance could have been fantastic, but with Miles' occupation and innuendos, I couldn't stop rolling my eyes or cringing. It ruined the romance factor and made for a difficult read at times.

surprisingly good

Almost didnt read this book as I was so disappointed with book 1 which was so boring I couldnt even finish but since I was gifted book 1-3 I decided to try it. Hopefully book 3 follows this sexy trend

Fun book

It was a light and fun book. However the basic conflict of “I’m too scared to tell him/her how I feel” is in the first and second book. Going to read the third book now. Please let the conflict be different.

Miles and Natalie

Natalie is one of those people who has to have her life planned out and does not like to divert from that plan at all, if at all possible. Some might call her stubborn, but she calls it determination. She has been with the same college boyfriend for 10 yrs and plans on staying with him and completing her 'Life Plan' with him even though she admits the spark is gone and she thinks he's cheating on her.

Until a drunken night out with her sisters ends up with a psychic reader and she proceeds to tell Natalie that her life is about to be upended. Natalie is skeptical until she gets a call from her old college friend Miles, who she happens to have a small crush on. He is in town and wants to hang out and while they are hanging out he has no qualms about telling her he likes her and always has. This has Natalie confused and one thing leads to another and before you know it she is suddenly single and they embark on a wild weekend. The problem with these two is that Natalie wants and is ready for it all; the house, marriage and kids while Miles is set on being the eternal single guy with no cares or worries.

Life happens and throws both of them a curve ball neither was expecting or ready for. This was a great follow up to the first book. It was also nice to get glimpses of Sebastian and Skylar and what they were up to since their book ended. Looking forward to Gillian's story next.
