Could not stop laughing. Thanking the good Lord I did not take this serisously.


Tell me how I could ever take a book seriously when it uses the following "vernacular"" "His balls tightened into hard little nuts."? Can't? Right? It's a good thing.

VERY GOOD: The characteristics of a 4 star book include: a great story; I loved the characters; and there was an interesting plot and unique story elements; there may have been a few odd things kept the story from being amazing. I would read it again and I would recommend it to a friend.

I'm not going to lie, guys, I picked this up for the cover. Because that cover is sexy. The good news is that the story didn't disappoint. It's a nicely naughty (while still being very sweet) friends-to-lovers read that made me want more! And with the group of friends Kristi and Cam are surrounded with, I'd have to guess that there are plenty more stories to tell.

But enough about their friends, lets talk about the LONGING that Kristi's had for Cam FOREVER. She's wanted him since they were in col

That. Was. Hot.

More? Ok, fine. That was really hot. :o)

I can't put my finger on it, but Rebound seemed like a new side of York's writing that we haven't had before. Rebound had all the essentials that make up a super steamy York book, but with a twist of light and fluffy romance with just a hint of kink. I loved it! Cam and Kristi had perfect chemistry with their playful banter between the two of them and with their friends. They have a couple misunderstandings that had me cracking up.

Jesus Cam sure knows how to make my panties wet, and a certain part of the boy has a mind of it's own, "and his co** was rather insistent. His co** wanted to be in her. Now." And well Kristi can wound his fragile male ego and the boy has to defend it, "it wasn't a fluke. I'll have you know, I'm damn good in bed." And he's not afraid to say what's on his mind, "best effing night of my life. I'd like to top it tonight. Right now. Why don't we, I dunno, go for a walk?" He didn't fancy effing in the ...more

A fun, spicy novella. I love when long-time crushes fall in love. This is my first book of Sabrina's but it won't be my last. Looking forward to checking out the rest of this series!

Sabrina York first caught my attention with her short story, Saving Charlotte, story number two, in the Smokin' Hot Firemen Anthology. After that, I checked to see what else she'd written, and stumbled across Rebound which was free on Amazon at the time. Of course that gorgeous cover drew me in, and the blurb sounded like some hot fun. I was not disappointed.

Holy cow! What a book to come back to! I have been on a bit of a hiatus and chose to read Ms. York’s book first. Having read her stories before and knowing jut how great her stories are, I had high expectations. Expectations well delivered on once again. If you haven’t experienced Ms. York before, I hope you will consider giving her a try. REBOUND is a novella so would be a great way to get a taste of Ms. York’s writing style without having to invest time

For those of you who remember the ‘90s sitcom, Friends, REBOUND reminds me of what an "NC-17" rated version of Friends would have looked like. The first book in the five-book Tryst Island series contains an ending to the hero's and heroine's romantic relationship and can be read as a stand-alone book. Additionally, at only 84-pages long, it can easily be enjoyed as a quick, fun read in one sitting.

They’d been alone together before. She had no idea why this time his fixed attention made visions of the two of them, entwined, race through her mind. It was probably the hint of mischief, that wisp of flirtation in his eye. But that was typical Cam. He flirted with everyone. And everyone knew it was just that. Flirting.

No. This was something different.

This is a short one, novella, just over 80 pages. A group of college friends own a vacation house together on Tryst Island, which of course is the perfect setting for a series of books about the owners! This one is about Kristi and Cam. Kristi has crushed on Cam for years, but he didn't notice her, or so she thought.

This was a really quick read but Ms. York managed to give a pretty good story in about 70 pages. Kristi and her college friends all share a house together on Tryst Island. After catching her boyfriend banging one of her waitresses, Kristi breaks up with him and heads out to the vacation house to get away.
