They did not expect to see each other again until Derek finds a way to run into her. And that leads to a whole other set of circumstances and the plot thickens even more. Soon they are spending more time together. Derek is not just a bad boy. He is caring, community minded, and completely irresistible. Their banter is flirty, dirty, and fun. They agree sharing kisses is okay, but have other rules in place. Both are adamant that they are not looking for a relationship. It's a game of temptation, frustration, and push and pull. But even the law abiding cop is going to have a hard time keeping her hands to herself with the sexual tension blazing between them.
So make new rules, right? What could possibly go wrong?
These two are so afraid to really want or need each other and are terrified that the other does not want more. Their chemistry is right on target, but their communication needs some work. They both have struggles with work that cause more pressure. And it is hard to figure out if feeling good for awhile is enough or if they are brave enough to take a chance and ask for more.
I absolutely adored Derek. He looks and talks like a bad boy, but also has a big, loving heart. And Perri is feisty, sarcastic, and tough, but also deep down wants to be swept off her feet, although she is scared to admit it. They are both so tempted, and yet so terrified. But their passion is off the charts and they are so good together. I just loved these two!
This is sweet, sexy, funny, and emotional. I was glad to be back in Lucky Falls with this crew. I liked getting more with Arden and Gabe, Vanessa, and her brother, Shaw. They have a fun friend group that takes care of each other. But there are also some other dynamics brewing. I am looking forward to getting more with Shaw.
The Feel Good Factor is Blakely’s sexiest romance, and that’s really saying something considering it was a bit of a slow burn—but, believe me when I tell you, it was burning the whole way through. Derek McBride was a hero I fell for immediately. Like Perri, this character flipped all my switches. The instant chemistry between the two of them was electric, and I settled in with what I knew was going to be one heck of a hot ride. Inked, dirty-talking, bike riding, paramedic Derek was a bad boy with a heart of gold, and I absolutely loved this knee-weakening, utterly swoon-worthy hero. Perri Keating was exactly the kind of heroine I adore. Strong, independent, confident with a caring, kind core, Perri had a weakness for tattooed, alpha bad boys. She was a whip-smart, sharp-as-a-tack police officer who was ambitious and dedicated to her job and her community.
“…we’re choosing this tonight—we’re choosing the feel-good factor and all its risks.”
I was on a plane when I read this line, and I audibly gasped in relief—I just barely stopped myself from fist pumping. Chapter upon chapter of titillating, torturous teasing left both Derek and Perri in a perpetually turned on state, and all that sizzling sexual tension finally snaps into what is very well could be the steamiest encounter Blakely has ever written. But lust wasn’t the only thing brewing between Derek and Perri, and it didn’t take this relationship-shy duo long to realize that there was a whole lot more than just chemistry there.
The Feel Good Factor was a fiery, passionate love story between a fabulously filthy-mouthed, hotter than sin hero and his perfect counterpart. I enjoyed every single word, moment and scene of Perri and Derek’s romance, and The Feel Good Factor is definitely among my top-favorites from Lauren Blakely. Five smooches from me!
Perri can’t seem to forget the hottie she stopped for speeding. Not only did he have a great body, but he had one of her weaknesses, tattoos on his arms. At the weekly farmers market, Perri runs into the motorcycle hottie, as he helps out his sister in her booth. Asking her out again, Perri agrees, as long as he enters a kissing contest with her. So they start practicing at the end of the farmers market. The chemistry between them is mind blowing.
Perri’s brother works with Derek at the firehouse and he knows his sister is looking for a tenant in the apartment on top of her garage. When he brings Derek over to Perri’s house, as her potential tenant, she knows that Derek cannot live that close to her. He would be too much of a distraction. However, they do decide to give it a try as long as they can keep their hands to themselves. How long can this last with desires running rampant.
This has got to be my favorite book so far by Lauren Blakely. It is so hot, you will need to sit by a fan!

Derek is a down to earth, hard working man, he is strong, seriously sexy, talks some dirty talk and has a heart as big as his muscles. He and Perri living side by side in her house, dealing with everyday struggles, impossible sexual chemistry and a side character in Shaw that i swear I can't even contain myself about, gave me more than the feel good factor.
I LOVE Lucky Falls, want to move there and live amongst this group of friends and have the best life.
Derek, you have my crown.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge Lauren Blakely fan and ‘The Feel Good Factor’ is Blakely’s sexiest romance, and that’s really saying something considering it was a bit of a slow burn—but, believe me when I tell you, when it burns it burns...

Every character in this book will put a smile on your face. The relationships between family and friends is just one one of the many reasons I love reading Lauren’s books. This book is well-paced, funny, sweet, steamy, slightly angsty and was a pleasure to read... 5 Stars again Lauren...
Oh, sorry, I got a little bit distracted there!
Ms Blakely has given us another sweet, sexy, lusty small town story.
Now, I have not yet read Best Laid Plans (so many books, so little time) however this did not make me like this book any less - and has made me move BLP up my reading list.
There is so much spark between Derek and Perri, that you just knew that things were going to be hot hot hot between then. I mean, you can't blame the girl for lusting over the tattooed hottie!
This is a light, but passionate story - and just the break I needed from the heartbreaking stories I have been reading lately. I love that there is no stupid miscommunications between our lovelies, and no drama just for drama's sake.
I love stories set in a small town, where it is like Cheers - everybody knows your name (and your business) - even though it is not so much fun when you live the small town life like I do hehehe.
It was great to watch Perri and Derek fight their feelings, even though everyone could see their attraction, and knew they would be great together before they even knew.
This story has left me smiling, and now I can't wait for Shaw and Vanessa's story.
