Review: Sex Snob by Elizabeth Hayley

sex snob cover

Sex Snob is a spin-off of Pieces of Perfect but can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Twenty-nine year old wild, carefree, and brutally sarcastic Amanda Bishop thought her three rules for dating would weed out unworthy suitors. And they did. Until she met Shane Reed, her smart-ass, sexy-as-sin CrossFit coach who pushes all her buttons. He’s the man she loves to hate. But when the hate begins to ebb away, and is replaced by feelings she can’t handle, Amanda hides behind her rules. Will the electric chemistry she feels with Shane allow her to get beyond a painful past, or will she push him away with her rules? Rules that make her the ultimate Sex Snob.

MY REVIEW

Sex Snob by Elizabeth Hayley
THE BEST DICKING I’VE HAD IN A LONG TIME!!!!
Amanda & Shane
5 Stars!

Just finished this little whopper a few hours ago. It packs quite a punch and is filled to the rim with sexual tension, ample humor, and the best damn character cast I’ve read in a long time. The subject lines are not too heavy, but hinting at more intense feelings to be revealed later. It’s definitely one you all need to put on your TBR list like right quick and in a hurry!

Amanda was utterly spectacular. I loved her from the very beginning and why not? She’s gorgeous, smart, talented, and all around one of the best damn female leads I’ve read in long time. She made me laugh out loud more times than I can count. With that said, she also made me want to smash her face in a few times too. I loved that she was Lily’s roomie from the previous book Pieces of Perfect so we got to read about Lily a little bit too. I’m so looking forward to finding out who the man is Lily’s been going to see. I think I know, but I’ll wait till the next book comes out to see for sure! Now Shane, he’s one hot piece of ass! He was always straight forward, no fooling around when it came to his CrossFit classes. Sometimes I couldn’t tell if he was being a jokester with Amanda or if he was being serious. Some of those comments about her body, I just wanted to kick him in the nuts, but I get now that most of that was just banter between those two. Trust me, Amanda gave it right back! He’s a very trustworthy, outgoing type of person and if I thought I’d run into someone like him at a gym I’d buy two memberships like yesterday! LOL! Great supporting characters in Lily, Steph, Danielle, Kate, Kyle, Hot Rod, and even Master Bader.

The writing style is perfect. It always gets right to the point while making you feel every emotions our characters feel. Good, bad, funny, and ugly, you name it, I’ve felt it in this book. Elizabeth Hayley’s writing has a way of sucking you into her story and making you feel like you’re actually living it. The POV is Amanda’s and by God, she a great story teller! The pacing is great and kept me interested from cover to cover. I was sad to see it end. Like I said, I was seriously into this one and it felt like I was losing a friend when I read that last page. Never fear, I’ll keep you on my Kindle always Sex Snob!

Tons of highs and lows, and one of the greatest climaxes I’ve read in a long time. It’s approximately 210 (Kindle Verison) pages long. A perfect length to get this book under my skin, take me on a wild ride, and put me to bed with a huge gin on my face! Looking forward to your next one in this series!

Review: Picking Up the Pieces (Pieces, #2) by Elizabeth Hayley

20521460

After a myriad of mistakes and a devastating breakup, Lily Hamilton is no longer the impulsive, selfish person she had once been. Now, she longs for the chance to make it up to the one person she knows holds the key to her happiness. But can he get beyond who she was and love her for who she is now? Or is history destined to repeat itself?

Adam Carter has gone through his own metamorphosis. His days of serial monogamy are long gone, and he’s been burying his hurt by dating women he has no intention of committing to. But when he sees Lily for the first time in months, he’s reminded of the man he used to be; the man he wants to try and be again–for her.

Max Samson is on the downward spiral from hell. Drinking and meaningless sex have taken over his life once again, causing him to revert back to the man he’d been before Lily fell into his life. But when his mother invites Lily back into his world, he suddenly remembers how good it felt to have her there. Even if he might not get to keep her.

Find out how Lily gets her happily ever after in this final installment of her story. This book is recommended for mature audiences due to language and unbelievably awesome sexual content.

MY REVIEW

Picking Up the Pieces by Elizabeth Hayley
UNFUCKINGBELIEVEABLY AWESOME!!!!
Lily, Adam, & Max
5 Mutha Effin’ stars!!!!!

You’re killing me! I mean seriously girls, I had major book hangovers after Pieces of Perfect and Sex Snob… now you totally fuck with my heart and soul over this one! (*Jaw drops) This story was so compelling that I could not put this down, I could not even speak! In fact, I think the only thing I could do was white knuckle it through this mix of emotions my body seemed to crave!!! This story, these characters were like my crack! I want to know them, I want to hang with them, and I want to be them. So much angst, so much craziness and sprinkle on some humor and hot sex and wha lah… you got yourselves a winner!!!!

Lily is so effing awesome! Funny as hell and oh so damn adorable! She may seem a little scatter-brained at times, but rest assured, she’s got it all figured out, well at least for that day she does! Oh to be young again! Talk about “Hot For Teacher,” I think I could dig having a teacher like her! She keeps herself busy as to not fall into that bottomless pit of self pity and wretchedness. She’s got a great approach to life and could easily be added to my girl posse!! I. Freaking. Love. Her and I’ll be celebrating on March 23 <>!!

Adam, well, he wasn’t my preferred character in Pieces of Perfect to begin with, but I guess he grew on me a bit… until I read this book and then he just got on my damn nerves! Every last one to be exact! At one point you think he’s all that and a bag of chips and then the floor drops out from under you and you’re like whaaaaa??? I get that he’s a single Dad and he’s suppose to have it all together, but he just seemed at times to act like a spoiled rotten brat! He would be the reason for my urges to throw my Kindle across the room!

Max, oh God almighty, Max!! Call me crazy, but I’m such a sucker for a bad boy athlete with an attitude problem! I guess you could call Max the “class clown.” He made me laugh out loud with his raw humor more times than I can count! I am now and will be forever on TEAM MAX! He’s just one ideal hunk of man that’ll melt your panties, make you giggle, and scare the shit out of you in one conversation! Just watch out for his rape whistle!! Love ya Maxi!!!

One of the best supporting character cast in a long time. Amanda is such a riot with her banter among just about everyone in here! Shane is, well Shane and seems to love the fact that Amanda is all kinds of fucked up, cause she’s his all kinds of fucked up! The way she talks to Lily, I had to wipe tears from my eyes… “If I were a guy, I’d fuck you!” or “Jesus Lily. He’s in your gym, not your vagina. Get a fucking grip.” All the teachers at Swift make being a teacher sounds good, even that “box of rocks” Tina! Even Adam’s friends got my dander up! Makes for some great emotions making me feel a little murderous at times!!! Welp, gotta go… gotta catch the next Greyhound back to Trampsylvania! Bwahahahaha!!!!

The dialogue feels very natural and flows with proficiency. It felt like I was inside Lily’s head at times, like I knew what she would do or say next. After reading the conclusion, I literally sat with my mouth open is amazement. To take this story where you did and end up with that climax, sheer genius! I love it! It’s 344 (Kindle Version) pages long, and I don’t know about you, but I read faster than I’ve ever read before and devoured every effing word that 344 pages went by in a flash…. time flies when you’re having fun!! The pacing is somewhat fast paced and I struggled with that option I always give myself… (I’ll put it down after this chapter) Yeah, right!!! Lost a lot of sleep over this one, but oh so worth it!

Review: Pieces of Perfect (Pieces #1) by Elizabeth Hayley

 

18308384

As a sexy ex-hockey player, Max was the bad boy with something to prove. As a handsome single father, Adam was the man most women wait a lifetime for. Each man would take me on a journey of self-discovery that was marred with lies, jealousy, deceit, and a whole lot of fun. They each offered a glimpse of happily ever after, a piece of perfect. But in my constant quest to have it all, I would risk losing everything. Only one thing was certain. I’d never be the same after this.

ADULT CONTENT – Only Suitable for 17+

MY REVIEW

Pieces of Perfect by Elizabeth Hayley
TO AIRPORTS, AUDITORIUMS, AND PRESS BOXES – CHEERS!
Max, Adam, and Lily
5 stars!

Well, I just finished this, as in like seconds ago! I’m trying to type this with teary eyes and a damn runny nose! Damn you Elizabeth Hayley! You sought me out, captivated me, and turned my world upside down! I am in love with this story and these characters. I cannot wait to read the next installment. It is so steamy, so funny, and so heart wrenching that I’m in awe that this is actually your first book. Congrats, you have a winner here!!!

This story of love, betrayal, deceit, and acceptance is unlike any other I’ve ever read. It’s not precisely dealing with anything too dark or creepy, but it will definitely have you so tied up in knots that I fear (for myself) that I will never be the same again. This is not your traditional love story, it’s much more! I mean we’re talking “A slice of pepperoni and an orgasm” for lunch! I think I’m going to enjoy my visit to “Delusionalville!”

I’m going to start with Lily (a.k.a. sailor mouth)… she’s a brilliant female lead character for so many reasons. She’s smart, witty, sexy, and for Godsakes man, she’s fucking two hot piece of asses!!! I must confess, she was getting on my nerves a tad, but I could almost appreciate her actions due to the dilemma she found herself in. I probably would have done the same things. Now Max, holy hell. That boy is hot, damn hot. I envision him being like this big dumb teddy bear that could be lead around on a leash eventually. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a total alpha male, but you could just tell there was something more inside of him, it just needed to come out. He can also bang like a champ in just about any situation for Godsakes. Adam, on the other hand wore his heart on his sleeve. Equally sexy, but oh so different from our sexy talker Max. If the two could just merge, you’d have the perfect man! Great supporting characters in Tina and both sets of parents. That Tina, now she’s somebody I’d hang out with! I could even say I enjoyed the “dirty pirate hooker” in the bar!

The writing style is effortless to read and flows very nicely. The pacing is not too fast nor too slow. I guess you could say it’s just right. I found myself blowing through some chapters like there was no tomorrow and others, I savored just a little longer. It’s 248 (Kindle Version) pages long and a perfect length in my opinion. There are too many highs and lows to single one out, but know this… It’s going to take you on a turbulent ride and at times will feel like the bottom just dropped out on you. Take comfort in knowing, you’re not alone. Been there, done that!

I’m not too certain about the ending just yet. I was a little freaked out, but have calmed some while writing this review. I’ve come to the conclusion that your climax was simply perfect… No, let me rephrase that, it was Pieces of Perfect! I am patiently waiting for the next book to come out, and when I say patiently, I mean more like, I’m biting my fucking nails, pulling my goddamn hair out, and slamming my Kindle around… so could you pretty please with sugar on top hurry!!! xo

New Release: The Wedding Agreement by Elizabeth Hayley

26067983

The author of Just Say Yes is back with another sweet and sultry Strictly Business novel about working hard and falling harder into an unexpected romance…

Love doesn’t always follow the same schedule…
 
Alex Walker doesn’t need a woman in his life. In fact, he doesn’t have time for one. Between his career in the FBI and the demands of being good father, romance is an unwanted distraction.

Likewise, Cassidy Mullen is fine on her own. The independent career woman has never had a husband in her plans—forget about kids. But when her friend Alex gets into a bind with his ex over their daughter, Cass finds herself suddenly playing the part of Alex’s stable, child-loving fiancée—and liking it a lot more than she’d care to admit.

Soon Alex and Cass can’t deny the real passion growing between them. But as fake affection turns into real love, Cass and Alex will have to make a choice: say “I Do” to their feelings or give up on happily-ever-after for good…

MY REVIEW

The Wedding Agreement by Elizabeth Hayley
Cass & Alex
FUNNY, CUTE, AND JUST OK FOR ME
3 Stars

So, this is the third book in the Strictly Business series and I must say I kinda liked it. It’s funny, it’s sexy, and it’s full of some kick ass banter. Not to mention some pretty funny main characters!

Cass is all kinds of cray cray! She blurts shit out without thinking of the consequenses. I’m pretty sure this whole story could have been avoided if Cass woulda just kept her mouth shut… but where’s the fun in that, right? Well Cass is dead set on being single, staying single, and dying single… Until… she sticks her foot in her mouth and puts herself in a situation she only thinks is temporary. Yeah right!

Alex is a single Dad whose marriage ended because he made the wrong choices when it came to family or work. He’s adamant about not making the same mistake again, but with a demanding job and a daughter who needs him, Alex find himself at the mercy of Cass and her crazy ways. Trust me, it’s really not that bad!

The supporting characters are pretty much the same people we’ve already read about in previous books but still pretty cool to see them again. We get to meet Alex’s ex-wife, Tessa who you’d think would be the bitch on wheels most ex’s are, but nope… she’s actually pretty cool and seems to be up for sharing parenting with Alex and Cass.

So, this is the third in the series and definitely a nice addition, just not my fave. The pacing is pretty good, the storyline ok, but I found not enough tension in the middle to make the climax anything special. I still liked it, but didn’t love it. For me it was just ok.

✩★✩NEW RELEASE & REVIEW: Just Say Yes (Strictly Business #2) by Elizabeth Hayley✩★✩

25056603

From the author of The Best Medicine comes the latest Strictly Business novel—and this time, for one woman, finding the ideal man can be a pretty tall order…

Magazine columnist Quinn Sawyer has always attracted sweet, innocent, and safe men. And something tells her it’s because she’s just as harmless. So when she starts craving a guy with an edge, she realizes she may have to get one for herself.

When her boss asks for a unique pitch, Quinn’s quest to live outside her comfort zone prompts her to suggest an idea that will cause her to break her good-girl rules. And who better than Tim Jacobs to help her push her boundaries? For a while now, Quinn’s had a hot crush on the tattooed executive chef with a checkered past. If anybody can bring out her inner rebel, he can.

It’s no surprise that with every task the two complete, the sparks between them grow more and more intense. Soon there’s no denying the attraction they each feel. But Tim’s troubled past reveals an even tougher edge than Quinn expected—which means for her, falling in love might just be the greatest rebellion of all.

Just Say Yes by Elizabeth Hayley
Quinn and Tim
YO, ADRIEN, I DID IT!

Ok, so I’ve read many EH books in my time and this one just didn’t do it for me. I liked it, it was funny, it had a good storyline, but I just didn’t love it. It has some emotion towards the last 25%, but up until then it just seems to be on an even keel. I’ll admit to laughing out loud a few time as I always do with EH books, but I felt it could have had a little more angst earlier on in the story.

Quinn is stuck in a rut. She’s always been the “good girl” and she’s always played it safe, but when an opportunity arises at work, she simply can’t refuse. Writing an article about living outside the box is something she knows nothing about so she enlist the help of her “friend” Tim. She comes up with a list of things she’d otherwise NEVER do and Tim helps her carry those tasks out. I must say that “pose nude” part was freakin’ hot and the girl talk between Quinn and her girl posse was hilarious. Follow Quinn on her quest to live outside her comfort zone.

Tim is a recovering drug and alcohol addict. He’s been clean for 7 years, works as Executive Chef at a cool new restaurant and going strong. He struggles with wondering if he’ll ever be good enough for anything or anyone, but helping Quinn with her list I believe is showing him how worthy he really is. He does tend to be a dick at times, but never fear, Quinn is here and she’ll peel away those layer of distrust and self loathing if it’s the last thing she does.

The supporting characters were pretty cool. Tim’s brother Scott was very supportive and pleasant. Roger Whitaker <– cracked me up… is that a folk singer from the 70’s! Anywho… Roger, Tims’ sponsor was one of my faves. He gave it to you straight and was always there when Tim needed him. Now the girl posse…those bitches say what they mean and mean what they say… We all need friends like that in our group.

So, this was not my fave, but it was a pretty good book. The pacing kinda lagged for me a bit till around 75% and then some angsty shit starts to happen. The storyline is good, the dialogue flowed fairly well, and the tension (for me) could have been a little more intense. I still look forward to reading more from this crazy duo… Elizabeth and Hayley!
