What happens when your sex strike goes viral — and suddenly every man in town has their eye on your prize?
All I wanted was little old-fashioned romance. After a parade of Tinder disasters who think chivalry is giving me a pearl necklace on the first date, I made a pledge: until guys step up their game, this girl is off the market.
But one bottle of chardonnay later, and my drunken rant has gone viral. I’m the most famous person NOT having sex since the Jonas Brothers put on their purity rings. A men’s magazine has even put a bounty on my (ahem) maidenhead: fifty Gs to whoever makes me break the drought.
Be careful what you wish for… Now my office looks like an explosion in a Hallmark factory, I’ve got guys lining up to sweep me off my feet – and the one man I want is most definitely off-limits. Jake Weston is a player through and through. He’s also the only one who sees through the mayhem to the real me, but how can I trust he’s not just out to claim the glory?
And how will I make it through the strike without scratching the itch – especially when that itch looks so damn good out of his suit?
The thrill of the chaste has never been so sexy in the hilarious, hot new romantic read from the Amazon bestselling author of GET LUCKY and THE BILLIONAIRE BARGAIN.
What’s a girl to do when she’s hit the skids and sworn off sex? She goes on strike – with a large part of the female population following her lead! Romance is dead and in its place only duds with one thing on their tiny little brains. Told in dual POVs by both Jake and Lizzie — one just as funny as the other. Let the battles begin!
Jake and Lizzie are both well-developed and heart winning personalities. Both are stubborn and hilarious. Lizzie is a classic romantic looking to be wined and dined and swept off her feet. Jake is a classic charmer and a real ladies man with no desire to wine and dine or do any kind of sweeping.
Their story holds the feel of an old classic movie. Lizzie works as a curator at the Met and in charge of planning a Golden Hollywood showing. Jake is a collector in pursuit of all things old and valuable. Both are flawed and equally challenged in relationships. Sparks fly between them almost immediately. Their first encounter is a one-of-a-kind and not ever to be forgotten or forgiven. Until about a year later, when they once again confront one another. From there things go off track fast with some huge misunderstandings to follow. An online bet centered on ending the sex strike quickly turns things ugly. The pace is fast and furiously full of revenge and regrets – but a ton of fun ensues through it all. Lots of dialog filled with zany, witty and sassy lines spouted from both sides. And, of course, the many challenges to see who wins the prize to end the sex strike.
I wished for a little more in the way of the happily-ever-after, but otherwise brilliant hot and sexy romp with lots of witty and smart dialogue. Marvelously written entertainment. Crazy fun and filled with so many laugh-out-loud moments with just enough angst incorporated to keep you interested.
Fantastic romantic comedy!
