Happily ever after - what a joke! I tried that once and ended up divorced.
Now, I only want one thing from men.
Charlie Nelson is good at giving me that one thing. Really, really good.

So good, in fact, I discovered a new side of myself.
I never knew I liked to watch until I saw his talented hands touching someone else.

So… let me start out by saying that THIS is by far the HOTTEST book I’ve read this year! I mean, sweet baby Jesus! Isabel Love burns up the pages with Unconventional! When I first read Untouchable, I was curious about Max and Monica’s wild friends, Charlie and Quinn. This book is a complete stand-alone, but if you’ve read Love’s first book, you’ve already met our leading man and lady.

Charlie Nelson is a photographer. He’s perpetually single, preferring just to hook-up. Charlie’s bee

Unconventional is the first book I have read by Isabel Love. If there is one thing this book is, it’s that it’s hot. The two main characters, Charlie Nelson and Quinn Fitzpatrick, have both been hurt in the past. They are both friends with the same two couples and met through them eight months ago. Neither is interested in the least in a relationship but they both love sex and enjoy a friends with occasional benefits relationship.

These two have so many similarities. They are both artists. Charl

➦O. M. G. ! This book is so damn hot. Me while reading this:

I really wanted to like this more bc it was EVERYTHING I was in the mood for :
✅ hot
✅ sexy
✅ fun

Charlie and Quinn are fuck buddies, enjoying each other’s bodies with no expectations, no feelings and no drama. They had amazing chemistry and together, they were on fire.

“Yes, Charlie?”
“I want you to ride my face.”
So I do.

5 Love Is For Fools Stars ⭐

I don't think I've thoroughly enjoyed a couple as much as Charlie and Quinn. Two gorgeous sluts, carefree and unabashedly happy in their singledom. Both have a hunger for sex that knows no bounds. So what happens when two friends and occasional fuck buddies start catching feelings for each other? Wild shennanigans and mouthwatering encounters

Neither Charlie or Quinn are interested in relationships. Having both been burned in the past, they enjoy friendship and hot sex.

Holy crap. Unconventional doesn't cover this book

It made me laugh, it made me cringe, it made me hot, it made me cry, and dammit it made me love!!!

Charlie Nelson is an amazing hero in my eyes. He is everything, literally everything you want in a man. He wants it simple, he wants fun, he wants happy. He loved once and was so burned by the betrayal and hurt that he won't ever do that again, right??!!!

Quinn Fitzpatrick has had enough hurt in her lifetime to last forever. She ain't looking for any

If You Like Sex, Read This Book!

Quinn and Charlie are two friends feeding off of bitterness from their past, betrayed by their exes. The sizzling attraction between them creates an extremely erotic setting for this love story. A man and a woman who don’t believe in forever…will love be the answer?

This is an incredibly sexy, sinfully sizzling read! I was surprised that I didn’t see smoke come off the pages. The author has a way of writing that just pulls you in. What’s not to love. Threesomes, v

I finished Unconventional at 4 in the morning. Read it in one sitting cause I couldn't put this bad boy down. Nope. Not a chance. I was so enthralled by Charlie and Quinn. Yes, their friendship was unconventional but it worked for them, because they made it clear from the beginning what they wanted and needed from one another. Sex. Nothing else. No strings. No expectations. I loved that when I first was introduced to Charlie and Quinn they'd already had sex a couple of times so they'd already es ...more

“That sounds a bit…unconventional.”
“Yes. Be unconventional with me, Quinn.”

Wow! Oh wow… This was HOT!!!! Isabel Love has really amped up the steam with her newest release, Unconventional. If you’ve read Untouchable then you would have previously met Quinn and Charlie and boy are they worth getting to know.

While I loved Untouchable, Isabel Love just literally knocked it out of the park with this one; the steam almost set my kindle on fire and I found myself constantly needing to take

Excuse me while I dunk my entire body in ice water. First things first: heed the author’s warning. Unconventional is beyond steamy; it’s like the Disneyland of erotica. If you’re looking for something extremely dirty to read, you will enjoy this kinky thrill ride. You impatient bad girls out there—and you know who you are—don’t even have to wait until you’re halfway through the book to get to the “good parts.” Things get naughty in chapter one and only heat up from there.

This book packs a hot as hell punch and let me just say, that's in no way a bad thing.

I picked up Unconventional due to many positive reviews. Especially the steamy part. I am weary at first since threesome is not my thing. I decided to take the adventour with this book.

The story itself is hot... only about half of the book. Then it started to feel flat. To me the threesome does not elevate the plot/ chemistry but just to add more steam factor into the story. I prefer the steamy part playing important role/ part into the story.

Well... listening to this audiobook is still better

5 Debauched & Satisfaction Stars

To be honest I was scared shitless to start this book. This might be dumb, I've read my fare share of different books and genres and here I was scared to start an erotic book. I knew when I read Untouchable Quinn & Charlie's version of love was really different than mine and I wasn't sure I would handle their relationship right.

So to be clear from the start, that was the dumbest thing I could have thought! I'm really laughing at myself right now because Quin

This book is very steamy but that didn’t take away from the romance. Charlie and Quinn are amazing. I loved them both.

~Sigh~ this book is a giant sexfest right from the beginning and I had such high hopes for Charlie and Quinn.

Don't get me wrong, there are some really hot scenes...phewwww! In fact, some of them are a first for me. I just wanted more story for Charlie and Quinn and when we do get to their story lines, you can tell that it would've been great to have them expanded on.

But this is the author's story so let me get to reviewing it...

Charlie and Quinn agreed to a no-strings-attached relationship and became friends with benefits. Through this kind of set-up, they were able to "fulfill" some of their sexual fantasies. As they spent more time with each other, they are happy and contented. When apart they missed one another more than they care to admit. Due to constant togetherness, Charlie & Quinn decided to take their relationship to the next level and became a couple. As the story develops, we’ll learn the deeper reason why C

Sweet Baby Jesus!

This is Isabel Love's second book, and it's a bit different from Untouchable, but OMG so hot!! I don't think I've ever read a book with so much hot sex! Isabel is a unicorn of a writer, and nail all your dirty fantasies perfectly! This book actually makes me understand why people like to watch and enjoy threesomes, and Quinn and Charlie's lovestory is epic!! Keep on writing Bella, and I'll keep on reading! 5 bright and shiny stars!🌟

CHRIST! Hell!!! This story was SCORCHING!!! Seriously I need to check for burns! I felt like I was trapped in a powerhouse of pleasure. And I enjoyed it. Repeatedly.

Isabel Love turns up the heat in this hella hot unconventional romance that involve lots of dirty talk, skype sex and threesomes. YES PLEASE. Seriously, some of these scenes made my jaw drop. And let me tell you, if you know me, that's sayin' somethin'!

I read the first book of this series and it was safe and awesome for ME but way to go, you ruined the series for me Author. Threesomes, sharing or orgies (in case they decide to have orgies) are NOT my thing. So I'm passing on this author all together!!

A HUGE thank you to Isabel Love for providing an ARC for an honest review!

How does one even begin to describe the most filthiest, dirtiest, most erotic book they have ever read?

Yup, you heard it: Hands down, HOTTEST. BOOK. I'VE. EVER. READ!!!!

Isabel spoke so much about how this was her hottest book to date and I must admit, I questioned this. How hot could a book get? But once I turned those pages, lord help me. Safe to say, this book made me sweat...and then some.

Ladies be ready because you will be hot, bothered and swooning throughout this entire story! The name of the book, Unconventional, could not be more perfect to describe the relationship between Charlie and Quinn. The two have been burned by love in the past, so they're casual "friends with benefits" relationship suits them just fine. This is a fun, hot, kinky read, but trust me when I say it's nothing short of a great love story!

Unconventional is a perfect title for this book.

I found this book to be just as readable as the first. I think this author is very talented and has a lovely writing style.

The first thing you should know about this book is that it goes beyond steamy romance straight into the erotica genre. The first book is very steamy, but in a more conventional way. As the title suggests, this book is anything but conventional. (view spoiler) There is a LOT of sex and kink in

I had to hold my jaw frequently while reading this book. This has been the naughtiest, most kinky book I've ever read.  And yet, it had a feel-good love story included. Charlie Nelson was the goof ball between his best friends, but he had a secret:  years ago he  suffered a betrayal that affected him so severely that he turned into a player. No serious relationships allowed. Likewise, Quinn suffered a betrayal by her ex-husband, that left scars so deep that she only had one-night-stands. The onl ...more
