Goodreads

Blue: When my ex walks into the resort bar with his new husband on his arm, I want nothing more than to prove to him that I've moved on. Thankfully, the sexy stranger sitting next to me is more than willing to share a few kisses in the name of revenge. It gets even better when those scorching kisses turn into a night of fiery passion.

The only problem? Turns out the stranger's brother is marrying my sister later this week.

Tristan: I have one rule: no messing with the guests at my vineyard resort. Of course the one exception I make turns out to be the brother of the woman my brother's about to marry. Now we're stuck together for a week of wedding activities, and there's no avoiding the heat burning between us.

So fine, we make a deal: one week. One week to enjoy each other's bodies and get it out of our system. Once the bride and groom say I do and we become family, it'll all be over between us. Right?

Fair warning: Blue and Tristan's story contains smoking hot scenes of man parts touching, pee-in-pants descriptions of grannies cursing, and the sweet improbability of two strangers finding their happily ever after when they least expect it.




This is my first Lucy Lennox and I got this as a freebie from Amazon. The blurb doesn't entice me much but I decided to try it due to some positive reviews. I'm glad I did because Lucy Lennox provide a nice spin to it and the humor is abundance. The sex is abundance too, I'm surprised their dicks didn't fall off.

The major part of the story took place within a few days when Blue went to a vineyard to attend his sister's wedding. The vineyard owner, Tristan is also the groom's brother and he was supposed to be straight. Okay, so Tristan figure out he is gay, get into a weeklong sex-fest with Blue and fell in love. Their relationship felt very insta-love if you consider the time frame, but it also feel natural to me. It didn't feel force at all. I did enjoy their sexy times, but honestly, they really did have too much sex. However, in between all the sweet, lovey dovey stuff and sex, there are some family drama which can be over the top, but entertaining as hell. Overall, I find this book very fun to read. Tristan is lovely and I like the way he is so confident about his newfound sexuality and totally devoted to Blue. He embrace Blue and willing to work on their relationship wholeheartedly, non of those letting you go for the greater good nonsense. Also can't help but love the crazy extended family as well and I'm looking forward to read the rest of the clan, especially Jude and his bodyguard. Dayum.
