When I heard Stella Rhys was coming out with a new book, I knew I had to get my hands on it immediately! I fell in love with her writing when I read her last novel, Ex Games. If you haven’t already read that one, you totally should! You won’t regret it, and you definitely won’t regret reading this book either. Sweet Spot lived up to my expectations in every possible way!

Lia Pope enjoys living in her quiet little apartment all alone. One night, while trying to take a relaxing bath, she hears

I was curious about this about this series and found that I already had the first book in my Kindle.

It was a good surprise. There were cute moments and moments I rolled my eyes but overall, it was a solid read. I liked Lia way more than her male counterpart but it was good.

It’s nothing groundbreaking but it’s a good romance read.

Wow. Omg wow. I seriously love Stella Rhys’s books. I was kicking myself all the way through this book because I stupidly started it when I didn’t have a day off. So I kept having to put it down and go to work. And lord knows that 30 min lunch breaks isn’t long enough to read!

I was hooked from page 1. The way Lia and Lukas met was hilarious. I honestly can’t remember a time when I loved the first meet as much in a book. I could easily picture what was going on and a) I was glad it wasn’t me and

➳Becoming neighbors was not something that they expected, but becoming lovers was something that they never in a million years saw coming. Both Lia and Lukas indulged, in a way that makes you fall in love with not only their chemistry, but their initiating love story and their end of it…

➳Having a neighbor was never something that bothered Lia. However, when she sees that her next door neighbor is going away on vacation and lets her brother stay for the mean time at her place, Lia never expec

"She was like a drug. She soothed and calmed me down and had me thinking crazy thoughts at the same time."

Sweet Spot is a stand-alone contemporary blend of smoking hot passion and sweet (and tender) romance. When Lia Pope meets her new smoking hot neighbor Lukas Hendricks, she simply cannot resist having a taste! (And then some!)

He’s like… aggressively good-looking. I swear every single muscle on his body is an attention whore. They keep flexing and rippling when all he’s doing is standing there and crossing his arms. It’s stupid.”

Lia Pope doesn't have time for a man, much less a relationship. She's spent the past three years trying to get her business up and running, despite the precarious financial situation her ex left her with, and she's not about to let another man sidetrack her dreams. Especially not

Audiobook review. Sometimes a good narrator can really push the story to the next level. /fans self. WOW! Lukas and Lia were both fantastic but Lukas had just that little bit extra. Tone, pitch, and pace were all strong.

The story itself was great. It had comedy, romance, steamy intimacy, a solid plot, maturity, and great characters. The prose was natural, pacing flawless, and overall, it was the full package.

I really liked the secondary characters and am eager to read the next in the series.

SO GOOD!I loved reading this book. It was super sweet, light and swoony with steamy, steamy scenes. Just the kind of read i needed to escape the real world.

I love it when the main characters face their issues head on and let their hearts lead them to the right path. No unnecessary drama, although there were moments of self doubts but i just love the way they trusted each other. Lukas and Lia were hilariously cute together and i'm hoping there's more- Sara and Julian..come on, i feel it

First of all I’m in love with The cover. That Guy🔥😍
Secondly, this book was so freaking hot, I’m in love with it too. It gave me so many feels, there was a smile on my face at all times. First book by this author, she has become one of my favourite. Her writing style is light, funny, sweet and oh so steamy. It just sucks you in. I am beating myself up why didn’t I read her books sooner but glad at the same too that I finally did. 😁

Based on the blurb, I was expecting a super light, fluffy and funny story, but instead a got something a little more deeper and little sadder than expected. Still, I'm not complaining as I finished this book in one night and enjoyed myself :)

Told in dual 1st person POV and standalone story with a HFN that's 3 years out.

holy hell. I fell in love with this book and it’s characters hard and fast, it was angsty, witty and down right hilarious.

Lia Pope had been celibate the past three years to focus on starting her chocolate patisserie and building it from the ground up, not having the time or energy to waste on men after her last disastrous relationship.

When Lukas Hendricks temporarily moves into his sister’s apartment while she’s away, he immediately gets off on the wrong foot with his new neighbour,

There is nothing wrong with this book. Just look at all the 4 and 5 star reviews. Its definitely me....I have run out of patience with books filled with twenty somethings finding themselves while banging their brains out.

3.5 stars, rounded up: After having read three books of this series - admittedly out of order: Reckless (#6) first, then Now or Never (#5), then Sweet Spot (#1) - I’ve noticed the respective plots seem to follow a pattern:

1. characters instantly have the hots for one another (#irresistible)
2. the heroine’s past is soon known to the reader, whereas the hero’s tragic, heart-breaking past (which also shows his hidden depth/worth) is revealed towards the end

I fell for this author’s writing when I read her book, Ex Games. So when I realized that everyone had jumped on the Stella Rhys train, leaving me behind, I knew I had to catch up. So I one-clicked Sweet Spot and I have absolutely no regrets.

Look, everyone has their guilt pleasure.
Stella Rhys is mine.
I can't really tell you why I like it, I just do.
I mean hero was a disgusting pig! A sexy one, but one with the mind in the gutter regardless!
But I still liked it not because he was ready commit despite his slutty history.
But because he went to heroine asking for emotional support. He talked. He asked her to help him through an emotionally challenging time when he usually broods and is most down.

Sweet Spot was a random find on my library's hoopla app, and I fell in love. I found the entire series and didn't even hesitate about downloading them.

It was love at first word spoken on my audio. Lia and Lukas were everything. Lia is a cute ass sassy baker. She's also having a dry spell - sort of. Well, until Lukas shows up in her life. He's her next door hottie for a neighbor. He's rude, arrogant, and gorgeous AF. ABS FOR DAYS GUYS!

This is the kind of book that makes you laugh and want to read more. It's perfect if you just want to stay in bed and enjoy a relaxing weekend.

I loved both the characters, they were great together and had an amazing chemistry. Definitely a book worth reading!
Audio: Narrators – John Masterson and Cassandra Myles

OMG!!! These narrators did an incredible job!!! I couldn’t imagine anyone else giving such perfect voice to Lukas and Lia. John’s voice was so deep and melodic that I had flashbacks of voice overs from movies such as My Dog Skip and The Sandlot. Cassandra gave such sweet innocence and passion to Lia that I was pulled completely into the character. The fluctuations were spot on, the tone and rhythm never needing a moment to adjust to.

GUH!!! This book should come with a warning. Went in for a little light-hearted enemies to lovers action but what I got was a hot-as-hell, sweet-as-sugar story about two people falling in love regardless of their personal issues or... frankly, time. I mean, it happens fast. And, surprisingly, I am 100% ok with that.

Now this is dirty filthy. And i love it. Moss rhys does not disappoint this time. Its really truffle delicious.
I worship lucas. He is such a perfect specimen of a man. Lia takes a while to grow warm. But when she did, she kick ass.

The thing that i do not like is the twist toward the end. I do not understand why lia have to leave. That is a very bizzare move. It could be executed better. Aside from that, i enjoy this book.

You haven’t been this attracted to anyone in a while. I woke up your need to fuck, so if you’re planning on fucking someone, why isn’t it the person you actually want?” I removed her hands from my chest and held them at her sides. “Why go for your second choice when your first wants you just as bad?”
