Meet Damian Castillo. The man, the legend, the heartbreaker. As a self-proclaimed man-whore, Damian doesn’t believe in love or commitment. In fact, he can’t remember the last time he’s had feeling for a woman that went beyond hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only things he cares about are his bar, his appearance, and his needs.

But then he meets Alexis.

Meet Alexis Blythe.

Damian is an over-the-top, stereotypical, man-whore commitment-phobe. He sleeps around A LOT. One day, while taking some random floozy up to his apartment for a quickie, he meets his new neighbor, Alexis. Sparks fly, etc., etc. He finds himself unable to get her out of his mind and, cocky guy that he is, he decides that he is going to have her in his bed.

Alexis has just moved to San Francisco after catching her long-time boyfriend cheating on her. She's taken aback by Damian's good looks, but pe

4 MIXED FEELINGS stars!

I'm confused right now.  And no, my confusion has nothing to do with the cliffhanger.  I kinda of liked this novel (I mean I read it straight through without stopping...so something kept me going) but then at the same time...I've got some doubt in there. Let me explain...

So, Damian is a major playa-playa.  Before Alexis, we see him have sex with 3 different ladies.  And I'm not playing around.  During the first clip there was anal sex, during the second a threesome, and du

WHERE IN THE HELL DID JESSICA FIND THIS HOT SEX MACHINE
Ladies cool your panties because Damian is beyond HOT. This book my goodness(fans self) where do I start. Damian is hot the cover does not lie and he literally is like that buzz in your 3rd drink that lets you know every muscle south is about to come alive. I could not and would not stop reading this. The worst part is Damian is a jerk. You know the kind of guy your minds made up about until he breathes on you and your skin is like charged w

1.05 cringy, "rich blue" stars.

This book is a perfect example why I mainly stick to fantasy. Bear with me, my reviews are always scattered after just finishing a book.


I finished this in two days, mostly because once it hit the half mark, I started skimming all their useless conversations and pushed to just finish this so I could move onto something worth reading.

I think this author must have gone through a similar situation meeting a 'Damian' in her life, because I am convinced she has a deep ha

I love an all alpha male, but Damian? Way too cocky! At first I was like go Alex!!! Show him he can't be all that, and then she too fell under his spell :(
Then Damian effs up, and I'm like you go girl again, and then she does the unthinkable and I'm screaming EFF YOU BOTH!.

Another read that could have been a little bit better with the characters.

Damian is one player of a man-whore that I didn't like at all. Alexis is sweet and I liked her but I wished that she had really given him something to ache about. I mean seriously he crushes on Alexis and yet he still tells himself he can't commit.

I don't know the story was OKAY but I still didn't feel convinced by Damian's character. I guess I need a little more of him being genuine (yet I still see him as a player). Now

So let's just start with the positive.It does have it's moments... Though mere moments they are.

This is quite well written, actually, which is why I finished it. And I think if the writing style would have been bad, I would have felt less ...well.. disappointed, but as it is I am just asking myself, why?

The Character building was kinda interesting. There is a clear visible attempt made to make the two MCs unique-ish. Sadly it was not quite successful. It was very promising at first and then just

Alexis sure knows how to bring Damian down a peg or two, "I -" I was again caught off guard by her. "Well s***. Way to bust my balls, Alexis." I felt a need to defend myself, and this was a feeling I wasn't used to. "First of all, I don't have a girlfriend. That blonde you saw on the stairs the other day was just some random girl I effed. Second of all, when I offered you the drink just now, I was honestly trying to be nice. You seemed really upset and you're covered in dried pain, so I figured ...more

This book was another just quick and easy read, I like books like these as they are just the right size and they keep readers interested but it doesn't require any afterthought.

The main characters are Alexis and Damian, Alexis has just moved to California from living in a small town her whole life however after she caught her boyfriend of four years cheating on her she decided to make the move. Damian is a self proclaimed man whore, he's willing to give a girl the best night of their life but n

** I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review **

I had high expectations after meeting Damian in A Day to Remember and I knew going in that he was a man-whore but Damian just didn't do it for me. Now, I know that I will be in the minority on this one and I totally love me some hot, dominating alpha males but something just didn't click for me.

Alexis and Damian seem to compliment one another and she gives Damian a run for his money. Damian is more intrigued by Alexis

Damian's indeed a man-whore.

He literally sleeps with hundreds of girls, easily, if I may add, who came into his bar. They simply gave their number and bam! Damian bang them. I tried to grow fond of this character, but I can't. He simply can't stop, not even after he felt something towards Alexis.

Sure he has his own reason but really, why in the world dude? I just can't. Not to mention how easy Alexis forgive him. I want to see him suffer, at least show him that Alexis got around too. I want to

What can I say, Jessica Wood is an awesome author. If you read The Day to Remember that's were we met Damian, this cocky, drop dead gorgeous bartender. We loved him so much that Jessica decided to write his book <3

I was one of the lucky few to get an ARC copy :) and I read it in one day lol :D I couldn't put it down. I just wanted to know what happened next,

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SPOIL THIS BOOK DON'T KEEP ON READING...

Jessica WoodDamianWow! I am in LOVE with this book/series!! Who can resist a bad boy who finally finds real feelings for someone... And you know there will be freak outs, trials and tribulations, and most definitely realizations. As in most books the "bad boy" meets an "innocent beauty" and even though they both feel the instant attraction and pull, they must work through their issues to find true love and happiness. I was immediately hooked by the narrators tone and ease of storytelling but kee ...more

I'm not a fan of female characters who lose their shit over arrogant guys just because the guy has a pretty body. I've said before in reviews that I don't mind lust at first sight, but if it's going to be everlasting love at first sight, it had better be believable. I don't believe that fairly innocent and sweet Alexis would turn into the exact sort of purring sex kitten Damien was used to abusing (and believe me, "bad boy" doesn't have to equate to "abusive" and "reprehensible"), leaving behind ...more

Well I would really like to add to this page what I thought of Damian but I don't think I would be allowed to print my views. This story is overwhelming predictable.

Beautiful man has his pick of women he uses and abuses then he meet HER but he also doesn't do relationships - until he meets HER.

Damian automatically rated women from 1 - 10, surveyed them from head to toe and then fu**ed them. That's who he was and then he met her - she was a 10.

this book was very clichéd. Full of amazing, full o

I love this book. I kick myself for not reading it sooner. It was 2am when I finished the book and when I got to that last line I was freaking out "OH MY GOD!!" I couldn't sleep I had to see what came next. I loved the character and the chemistry they had. I was so emotional yelling at Damian "you idiot!" "Don't do that!!" " WHY!!!!" I even had to PM Jessica Wood to vent. Great story.

Mixed with feelings on this. Damian is extremely cocky and the way he treats woman...I have a hard time with. There is a reason for his behavior but still, I don't like it and his cockiness about himself. He starts off one way at the beginning of the read and is a somewhat different individual at the end. He still has a long way to go.

Damian an Alexis... 3.5 stars!!!

I really liked the story and the characters. Would've liked some more sexiness in some of the scenes like where she teaches him how to work with clay, but that's just me.

The end was a bit cryptic, and not how I saw the book ending. But, I suppose that the author entices her readers to purchase the next book, so that is what I'm going to do!

didn't mind this one though it's not really on my re-read list. it was a bit cliched and in places a bit OTT but overall not a bad story. the editing failed too as every now and then there was a word that just didn't gel (sounded right but the spelling was word with a different context). hated the ending .. i am not one for cliff hangers and thank goodness i had the next book ready to keep right on reading.
