There is a lot going on in this story, between Justine and her relationships with her parents and Sawyer. There were other secondary characters who added much to the story as well, and I wanted to violently hurt the villain. All the people in this story are flawed with their own problems, and seem like real people. And despite the problems, they still work it all out, to my immense satisfaction. There's lots of bickering and snark throughout the story, and the chemistry between Justine and Sawyer was amazing! I really liked Justine. She is a solid woman, independent, open, honest, messy, and very stubborn. She has issues with finishing what she starts, but she's learning. Sawyer likes having control of everything, and is career oriented, to the point of avoiding any kind of attachment to others. Both of them have pasts that they want to forget, but they work together despite it, especially when it comes back. I also loved the bond between Justine and her mom.
Overall, it's a great story, well-written with few grammar mistakes, and a plot that's ever building and having more layers added on. There's so much simmering at the surface, and when all is let out, it's explosive and an entertaining, wild ride! If you like strong heroines and heroes with a hard exterior and soft, protective interior, then you'll love this book. I highly recommend it.
Note: I received a free ARC of this story from Quill and Ink Reviews. I voluntarily am leaving an honest review.
This story is told from the alternating viewpoints of Justine and Sawyer. I love, love, love reading from the viewpoint of the protagonists. Both of them were thrown into a situation that was beyond confusing for them. They had very little control in their respective situations and there were deals being made by many characters in this story. Made it very interesting because there was definitely a Team Justine and Team Other.
Such a wonderful story! I love Justine’s character! Even though a sex tape came out without her knowledge she decided to just own it. She took a bad situation and made it profitable and thus took control of the situation. Such a strong female lead.
Sawyer, he is not a bad boy per say but he is a ladder climber and he prefers one-night stands without entanglements. He is written perfectly for this storyline. I love that he knows who is and he stands up for Justine even when he does not like her, pffft, yeah right Sawyer…..He loves her from day one he just did not know it yet.
The chemistry between these two characters is there. The pages just sizzled with smoldering desire between Justine and Sawyer. The Sexy Times are definitely hot. They are not over the top or in your face but they are steamy enough for anyone to appreciate.
This is not just a love story. There is a real journey of discovery for Justine. She has to work out issues that she had stuffed down and left unsaid for so long. Many skeletons come out of closets throughout this story and there is a very satisfying end to a mystery that had plagued Justine and her family since the sex tape was made public.
Did I want more? Well in a way, yes. There was what I would consider a subplot introduced regarding Sawyer’s baby sister. She was very important to Sawyer and was mentioned repeatedly but we had no true closure to this. The idea was carried through to an end but it was not a finality. Was hoping that it would go somewhere. That is just a minor issue though.
This is a debut novel for Author Lori Sizemore and as far as I am concerned she knocked this out of the park. I am looking forward to following her career if this story is any indication of what she has to offer. If you are looking for a book that will engage you from beginning to end, then I recommend this book to you!

This review is based on an digital copy I received from Author Lori Sizemore. It is an honest and voluntary review and the advanced receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
There is so much that could be said that being able to filter through not only how I feel about the story but what is fair to divulge is taking a little more time than I thought.
Justine is a feisty character, fully aware of the impact that the sex tape that is now her ex leaked to the media, she isn’t ashamed, after all why should she…he made it without her knowing anything about it. Now, personally I would have been a lot more bothered but then again what could she do, it wasn’t going to go away quietly!
Anyway doing what she can to shrug it all off, she puts her head down and tries to get on with her life, perhaps a new job would help…well you would have thought that was a top idea, I know I certainly did but when her father gets wind of it he uses every underhand trick in the book to get her to stay put… really, parental blackmail? What next?
Well, what came next was Sawyer and while on the surface it seemed that he was all about his career, it soon became clear that there was more on his mind than I think he even knew. He might have been a love them and leave them type previously but now, with Justine…this bed hopper might just be ready to settle down…a little anyway!
I liked the connection and interaction between the two of them, they had a sharp yet jovial banter that was engaging. I loved the fact that they both got to say what they were thinking and that since the book was told from both of their points of view they were each given a chance to shine. Justine took that in my opinion and I think she came seemed to eventually grow into her own skin so to speak.
Their situation wasn’t the easiest and there was a lot to keep an eye on, a lot of secondary characters who all seemed to want to get in on the action, deals were made, agendas addressed and throughout it all there were two people who were almost stuck fielding the angst and attitude of those around them, who it seemed as if they weren’t always pulling in their direction.
I liked the connection and chemistry between Justine and Sawyer, they oozed a natural charm, a proper sense of reality, they just worked. The journey wasn’t all plain sailing for either of them, there were skeletons in the cupboard that needed to be completely exorcized…the only question was, could they?
For a debut novel I have to say that this was a fabulously well written, sharp and humorous read. From start to finish this was a joy to read.
