Release Day Blitz & Review ~ Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland


Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland is LIVE!!!!

Book Description:

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards. 

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction. 

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems. 

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.

It’s just sex, not love.

But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 stars

“I thought I couldn’t get you out of my mind, but it was my heart that wouldn’t let go.”

Vi Keeland is one of those authors that always delivers and once again Sex, Not Love ticked all those boxes. Sex, Not Love is one helluva swoon worthy romance while embracing the fears that many people have before embarking on putting their heart out there. This book was full of heart, emotion and real life and I couldn’t help but champion these two characters along.

“If Hunter was my real thing, why did I have to go back to imposters?”

Natalia Rossi and Hunter Delucia first meet at their best friend’s wedding and the instant attraction was sizzling. Neither want a relationship, neither succumb but it wasn’t for want of trying and smooth words. Having married best friends means that their paths keep crossing and that sizzling hot chemistry never wanes, no matter the months and months that pass.

“It’s been nine months, and here you are still chasing me after one night in my bed. And I didn’t even put out. Imagine the condition you’d be in if I did.”

Natalia was a great heroine, divorced at twenty-eight and incredibly jaded with the male species. However, she had all that Italian feistiness which made her character pop off the pages, Vi Keeland did an amazing job bringing this character to life. Natalia had a heart the size of Texas, put everyone before herself but she was no doormat, she was just inherently kind and generous.

Hunter Delucia on the outside was the typical commitment-phobe but there was a lot more to this utterly adorable man. Drop dead sexy, with a filthy mouth and the equipment to back it up, this man had it all, so why was he still single?

“You wore me down, and now you’ve worn me out, Mr. Delucia.”

Starting as friends with benefits with strictly no emotional attachment was a tall order considering the chemistry that these two shared, but they have a lot of issues between them to work through. I loved how Hunter’s past was slowly eeked out with flashbacks to the past and gave a greater insight to the man he is today.

“So if you want to protect her—really allow her to move on without it dragging out for years like things with my dad did—don’t leave her questioning. Because while the truth hurts, it’s like a Band-Aid when you rip it off. The pain goes away. It’s the lies and questioning that keep you aching for a long time.”

This was all about exploring a connection, breaking through the barriers and grabbing a once in a lifetime opportunity with both hands. Confiding, trusting and finding that soul mate, that no matter the bad, makes everything seem so much better. Absolutely adored it, read it one sitting and could easily re-read it again.

“I used to think Hunter Delucia had stolen a piece of my heart. But I was wrong. Because eventually, even the heart stops beating. This man stole a piece of my soul—because the soul lives forever, and so will my love for this beautiful man.”
