In the end it doesn't matter if he's got an excuse for his behavior, it doesn't even matter if its a legitimate excuse, since the way their relationship has gone, there has always been the need for excuses, and that's not the kind of relationship she's prepared to settle for. The bottom line is that every time there's something that needs to be excused away ... it hurts, regardless how good the excuse might be after the fact.
This breakup is so very different from the breakup at the beginning of Wet, book one of the Water's Edge series however. Back then despite the upheaval, she was glad to be out, and this time, it hurts so much, because she really wishes that things could have worked out differently.
Soaked by Stacy Kestwick, follows Sadie on her quest to put this latest failed relationship behind her, even as West pulls out all the stops to get her to change her mind. Throw in a handsome stranger, a nightmare from the past, the best of friends and probably too much alcohol and you've got the recipe for a volatile story. Throw Aubrey, West's bitchy ex into the mix and its downright explosive.
I read a lot of stories and very few have major plot twists that catch me completely by surprise but this one did, and as plot twists go, I thought it was clever, timely, worked well with the story and even managed to be somewhat educational without getting preachy. Beyond that, the story was well paced, moving from angsty through funny, awkward, suspenseful, sad, and extremely hot while keeping a hopeful tone throughout. Read through in one sitting and thankfully, no cliffhanger at the end this book had me feeling the joy of life and just warm fuzzies all over
For fans there are plenty of hooks tossed out along the way to be picked up regarding the minor characters setting the scene for other books in the series to pick up on, and I for one am looking forward to see what comes next.
How does the saying go? "You need to crawl before you walk, walk before you run." Well hell, you need to meet Sadie and West before you get "Wet", get done getting nice and Wet...then plan on getting "Soaked"! In a nutshell, you need to read Wet first...like now! There is no way around it and I don't recommend even trying to skip the first book. Trust me when I tell you it is no hardship!
Stacy's teasers taunted us for months, but they were just a little something to pass time and torture us between releases. In some cases getting your Kindle, Nook, phone or e-reader fixed or replaced due to the ending of Wet ' Stacy managed to make every aching moment between the releases worth well worth the wait!
I'm not going to tell you what happens or throw in any spoilers just incase you have not read Wet. I will give you some favorite lines though.
On of my favs is "Don't worry babe we are both gonna get off"...hot dayum!! *swoon*sigh*
You will be reunited with not just Sadie, West, Rue, Grady and ugh... AUBREY. Did I mention yet that she is throwing in another hottie? Nick.
Nick kind of has a thing for Sadie you could say. You may find yourself fanning off a little after you start reading about him. He definitely is not the boy next door type..at all! He has an awesome personality and blends in seamlessly with the other characters and the story. Nick has an amazing eye and is pretty good with the pick up lines also. You may want to have a cool rag handy, just saying!
"You're getting me all wet"
"Finally you admit it..looks like I've stole your breath too." "I think you like the way I see you...you like the way...it makes you feel... Hot, damp" I told you already he has a way with words but...just wait until the food comes into play!
I will admit I was always 100% #TEAMWEST. I still am. There were a couple times I want to inflict harm on both Nick and Sadie. But..Nick grows on you and he is hot..did I mention that!?! Now sweet Sadie I actually wanted to bitch slap her, just enough to open her fricking eyes.
I get her though. Many of us can related to her situation, it sucked. I just hope I wasn't as whinny and confused as she was. She was on an emotional roller coaster ride from hell so I guess I will give her a free pass for her being a whiny butt!! She redeems herself...*Phew*
"...Sadie have you looked at yourself in the mirror? You're gorgeous.....it's like comparing a hot Krispy Kreme donut to a picture of one.."
Last quote I promise..
"Hell you're the dream I didn't even know u had until it happened. "
Stacy knocked it out of the park...if I could give it more than 5'''s I would!!

I really enjoyed these books but I got very frustrated at how West allowed a woman who was practically a stalker to get away with so much. He should have kicked her into touch right at the beginning of Wet, but I guess she was needed for the plot.
West was a very good character and although Sadie could be a bit immature at times, it was a satisfying read. I absolutely loved West.
Stacy Kestwick has a good writing style but she hasn't published any other books to date. If she had I would definitely be downloading them.
“You’re the dream I didn’t even know I had until it happened.”
It was very much about Sadie’s emotional, mental, and soul-searching journey towards the truth that was obvious and staring her in the face, and West’s battle to make her see HIM and how he feels about her.
It was passionate, super sexy, and often frustrating but I was rooting for them all the way. That Aubrey is such a piece of work! LOL.
A reader could get annoyed with Sadie for being blind but, oddly enough, I didn’t feel negative about her because if I put myself in her shoes, I could really see how everything could be misinterpreted. She was so caught up in her jealous insecurities, and the other woman always seemed to be where she shouldn’t, I could understand how she would feel!
“And Sadie…that girl had me feeling things I didn’t even understand…All I knew when it came to her was I wanted more. I wanted it all.”
Poor West! I adored all the paper plane love notes! Actions speak louder than words but Sadie was struggling to see and recognise his good deeds. This dude, former manwhore, was totally in love with her and I adored that he wouldn’t stop fighting for her.
One of my favourite chapters had a photography scene in a hotel room that was off the charts sexy. The epilogue totally made me smile.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book (got the first, "Wet" for free and enjoyed it so much I happily paid for the sequel) and was happy that there was actually a story.
So many romance books just want to skip to sex scenes which seems to be a cop out, almost as if within this genre that is all the writer believes the reader is looking for-it is not!
Thank you Ms Kestwick and I hope to see many more releases from you.
