Falling in love wasn't part of the plan.

I had one job left to do. After that, I'd finally be free of that bastard crime boss. I'm used to getting what I want--nothing has ever stopped me.
And then I met Sloan.

Beautiful... sexy... and a hell of a sassy mouth. She makes me ache in a way no one ever has.

She's also the sister of the man I need to take down.

Just as the title alludes to, this book is so full of Sticky situations. Hunter Gage is this dangers, tattooed, blonde beauty of a man and Sloane Casey is a tough, voluptuous, complex gorgeous woman who from the moment their eyes met you knew steam was coming. Steam so hot you were going to be left singed! I felt all of that just from them moment she felt his eyes on her, and she liked it. Every woman has that man in the back of her head that she thinks only dreams are made of, and on the surfac ...more

I Was Provided A ARC By The Author
(Possible Spoilers)

Hunter Gage & Sloane Casey are a book couple you need to experience.

Hunter Gage made a deal years ago to save someone he loved, and now that deal is coming to a end, one last job and Gage will be free. But Gage wasn't prepared, when he was sent to get close to the sister of the guy he's to surveillance, that he would feel so strongly for the women. Beautiful, Curvy, dark haired, Sloane Casey. It's easy to get close to her, his attraction to he

From looking at the title of this book it didn’t really give much away so I thought this was going to be an interesting book, as normally when you have a one word title for a book it can go either way. I am honestly glad that I have had the chance to read this book as I love helping out authors, Julia Swift is a new author for me but from what I read in this book I thought that it was perfectly written. I’m not going to lie and say that I didn’t find myself confused at any point because being ho ...more

Sticky by Julia Swift was a first time read for me. This story was written well it took me about a day and a half to read. I Absoluty loved the book, once I started reading it did not want to stop reading it. I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story had a great plot. Sticky is about a man named Nicholas Gage who has one last job to do before he’s paid off his debt to the terrible crime boss he owes. A master of surveill ...more

Who wouldn't want a love where the person would lay down their life for you? That's what Hunter Gage and Sloan Casey do for each other in Sticky! Gage is on his last job for crime boss Aaron O'Malley who helped Gage with providing medical attention to his Mom in return for certain jobs. Sloan's brother, Fred, has been in gambling trouble before and Sloan thinks he is again thanks to Gage. The only problem is they don't know what Fred is really doing (no need to read this book!).

Mafia. Erotica. HEA.
Gage owes one more favor or job to a local mobster. This job involves him getting close to Sloan in order to find out what her brother did with money owed to the mob. Sloan is a hardworking waitress with a problematic brother. Once again, his problems have found their way to her door.
Not that Sloan knows this. Yeah, it's bad. She likes Gage and he's running a game on her. Thing is? Gage likes Sloan too. A little too much.
They have an instant attraction that leads to a Smoken

I was given a ARC for an honest review.
This book starts out strong with Gage being called in to do his last job for this corrupted thug leader Aaron. His target is Frederick, who owes a lump sum of $500,000. But in order to get close to him, he has to get close to his twin, Sloan. The first time Gage lays eyes on her, he thinks 'I need her'. It goes down hill from there for him when he starts dating her. When Sloan catches him at her brothers apartment, she realizes she was a fool to fall for t

I received this arc for an honest review and I absolutely loved this book.
I am just starting to write more reviews, so bare with me here. :)

Gage and Sloan are now one of my favorite book couples. When I started reading this book, I automatically loved Gage from the very beginning. Even though he is supposed to be the bad guy (at least you think that) he really isn’t. When I was introduced to Sloane, my first thought was she is such a sweetheart. The fact that she loves her brother so much and w

Sticky by Julia Swift is a standalone romantic suspense story with some pretty steamy interactions between the two main characters and some crafty plot twists thrown in the mix also. A well-paced and well-written tale of a man paying off a debt to a sleazy casino owning crime boss and his mark on his final job who fast becomes the woman he falls in love with.

Gabe does everything he can to be as honest with Sloan as possible but when his job is to use her to get to her brother things get complica

I received this book for an honest review, okay so here is goes..... Wow HOT HOT HOT loved this book, amazing erotic scenes, love how Gage tried to keep his feelings for Sloan to a bare minimum, kept telling himself it's a job he's here to get info. Sloan trying to keep her twin brother Freddie out of trouble. Tries hard to fight her feelings for Gage. Was she hurt when she found out the truth? Yes! Kind of left a few things hanging like what happened to Aaron? With out giving to much away... Wa ...more

This was an ARC that was given to me by the author. All I can say is well done! I loved the hero-tough and moody on the outside and gooey on the inside-yum. The heroine was feisty and competent and I really liked her. Sex scenes were warm and spicy with some good dirty talkin' goin' on-I like that in a book! Story line was good, characters were like-able and I really enjoyed this author's writing. I will be looking for the next book and thank you Julia for the opportunity to read a really good b ...more

I simply couldn't get enough of Gage and Sloan. This was my first read by this author and I can say with certainty it will definitely not be my last. I LOVED IT!!!

It is jammed packed with sexy character interactions and will take you for an emotional roller coaster.

Gage fights his attraction towards Sloan just as much as she does and it's a perfect struggle throughout the book. Will she be able to overc

Loved this and sweet, with suspense and danger, a very feisty woman and a not so perfect man!
Gage has a job to do..As fast as he can and then he's out! The only problem is that he falls for the woman he has to seduce in order to do the job.
Sloan is feisty and gorgeous, smart and brave..and I love her! She's strong and even tho she feels a connection to Gabe she is not going to be a fool.
Gage..I have to say I loved him right from the start..He does what he has to do but in the end he t

I loved this book. The story line was great. The only reason I am giving it four stars is because it took a little bit for me to get into it. Once I did, I enjoyed it. This is about a good girl that falls for a bad boy and I love that. I loved the surprise at the end. Didn't expect it. I don't want to spoil anything about the book. This is a good read and I recommend it to anyone that likes good girl bad boys books. Thank you so much for allowing me to read this book for you. ...more

"I received an arc for an honest review"
I am new to Julia Swift and I have to say I really enjoyed this book. This was a romantic standalone story, about a bad boy and a good girl. I love Gage and Sloan and couldn't stop once i started, and I loved the hot sex scenes. This is a must read, I recommend it.

This book was fantastic. This is my first time reading this author and I was impressed. She is detailed in her writing and does an exceptional job writing dual POVs. Gage and Solane's story starts out under the wrong circumstances but ends beautifully. You will definitely want to one click this bad boy.

Sticky was the first novel I read by Julia Swift and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed reading this book. It was a romantic standalone novel. There was intense chemistry between Gage and Sloane. The sex was extremely hot and the storyline interesting. It was a nice easy read which held my attention until the end and I have to say I loved the ending.

Wow, what an amazing, well written story. I couldn't put it down. I need some more Gage and Sloan in my life. This book was a ride of suspense and love. At times I didn't know if I should close the book because I was afraid of what was next or keep reading. You won't be disappointed at all! Can't wait what's in store for your next book

Gage works for a Jersey Shore thug and he is on his last job with him. The last job involves a woman named Sloan and from the moment he met her he was attracted to her. His relationship is tested due to his involvement with the thugs and her brother. Good story with action and romance.

This was the first Julie Swift book that I have read. I loved the ending of the book. To me, that is what made the whole book come together. I admit it seemed a little slow in some areas but the characters Sloan and Gage made me want to continue to read this to see what happens.

This book is hot! It has some suspense, but I would not consider it a romantic suspense book. You will have no problem keeping you attention in the book the whole time.
