Garrett and Lauren are good friends with an attraction to one another. They tried to do something about it once and the result definitely didn't quite meet with expectation. Garrett wants to try again and in this case, second time is definitely a charm. I liked that these two were close before introducing intimacy and the attraction translated to some hot scenes but I was left to wonder if they only pushed for the coupling because their circle of friends was perfectly paired up to one another.

A fun, playful sexy entertaining read!!!! Marie Force sizzles up the pages as she brings forth another wildly hot read in Sex God. Seriously, who doesn’t love a friends to lovers story line. I know I am complete sucker for them. And to witness what Garrett and Lauren had for each other, I was sold. Their friendship is what made this book so much endearing as they tried hard not to blur the lines so their friendship could remain intact bu
5 Sexy Godly Stars!!

Another amazing book by Marie Force. I am quickly starting to realize that Ms Force can write a phone book and I would read it. Her writing in Sex God was flawless!

Sex God is Lauren and Garrett's story. This book can be read as a standalone but I would really recommend reading Sex Machine first. Both characters are introduced in that book and you also get to see what our favorite character's Honey and Blake have been up to Sex God.

Lauren and Garrett have been best-friends

I LOVE a good friends to lovers romance and second chance romances are my ultimate weakness!! Luckily, Marie Force’s Sex God is a little bit of both, and it is one of the best of the two genres that I have read in a long time! Sex God is one epic piece of sinful deliciousness that lit a fire inside of me and incinerated my kindle! Take the title of this book literally, because this friends to lovers romance is packing some seriously sexy, HEAVENLY heat that will torch you from the inside out!

This is definitely a friends to lovers book.

Garrett McKinley and Lauren Davies have been best friends since 6th grade. They talk about anything and everything (except a secret dream that Garrett is keeping buried).

When Garrett's father dies unexpectedly, he comes home to run the Accounting Firm and take care of his mother and siblings. This was not his dream, but he does it without complaint.

Garrett and Lauren have strong ties to their hometown of Marfa.

Sex God by Marie Force is my first novel by this author. I found it to be well written with likeable characters and a sexy plot.

This novel follows the story of Lauren and Garrett. Lauren has been traumatized by the past, and Garrett wants to use his extreme talents to help her heal, move on, and find love again. Even while he is trying to help her, he is looking for his escape from a town he never meant to return to for the rest of his life. Their initi

Sex God by Marie Force was just amazing!!! Garrett is my new book boyfriend that is for sure!!! I loved everything about him. He is known as the Sex God. He will give you the time of your life behind closed doors. Living in such a small town, he tries to stay away from the drama and gossip. But every one knows what he is famous for. Even though he is a ladies man, he has his eyes set on only one girl since they were kids. His Lo!

I'm ready to visit Marfa, Texas. What a hot bed of romantic hometown love. I grew up in a small rural town, so I love this community where ever one knows each and and has for years. It leads to a different kind of commitment.

This book was also full of hot, hot sweet sex....

Love, friendship and hormones butt heads in Garrett and Lauren's dance of seduction. Marie Force always brings out that loving feeling with her appetizing heartwarming romances, however Sex God packs on the heat while still delivering some sugar for that sweet tooth, I've developed an addiction for. ...more

started nice and quick. The first scene of them in the bar for beer and wings setup a strong base for their friendship.

I liked the dual POV up until their second chance consummation. after that H's narrative became long winded and repeatative as he goes on his feelings for Lauren, on not telling anyone about his need to leave and free himself from family responsibility and his job interview.

One of the greatest best friends to lovers stories I have ever read! It was fun and unique and sexy!

Both Garrett and Lauren had been aware of each other in more than just friends for quite some time but it was never really the right time and quite frankly, when is it ever the right time to potentially explode your best friend relationship? Never, that's the answer. But then the day just came and BAM (and not the way you think LOLOLOL) ... The book is titled Sex God for a reason and if you read i

Marie Force sets small town Marfa, Texas ablaze once again with a friends-to-lovers spin in this sexy standalone. Hellfire! The follow-up to Sex Machine is hotter than blue blazes! And a dang terrific tale to read, too. This is an author who never fails to come up with surprising new angles and roads to travel for her characters. You’ll get a little update on Blake and Honey, and what’s going on in their lives. Don’t tell Marie, but I really liked Garrett and Lauren’s story just a smidgeon bette ...more

All of the elements were here for me to really enjoy this book. Lauren and Garrett have been friends for years, and even tried once to be more. But, it was a disaster, so they have moved on and back to friends, preserving the relationship they value and pretending like the night didn't happen.

Friends to lovers is a favorite of mine, as the navigation of the change of the relationship is a a lot of the fun of the story. In this title, I fe

Sex God is a standalone read but if you read Sex Machine, you’ll be happy to get updates on Honey and Blake in this one. This one is Garrett and Lauren’s story. Garrett is a decent guy. He and Lauren are best friends. Garrett has a reputation of being a sex god. After a not good sexual experience with Garrett, Lauren thinks it she is bad at sex. Garrett is now out to prove to Lauren that there is nothing wrong with her. I loved that Garrett and Lauren were down to earth characters and their chem ...more

Marie Force has created another fantastic stand alone book, set in the small town of Marfa, Texas. Sex God is a sweet, yet sexy read that draws you in from the start and does not let go. Marie continues to be a talented author and has made me fall more in lobe with each of the characters she has created.

In Sex God, best friends Garrett and Lauren have to figure out if they can take their relationship to the next level without losing what they already have.

I generally love a friends-to-lovers story. This one seemed like it would be right up my alley and written by one of my favorite authors. But the romance between Garrett and Lauren fell a little flat to me. They'd known each other for years. Garrett had been there for her during the wors

Sex God was a really great read. It was a wonderful mix of several tropes. Garrett and Lauren have been friends since childhood, each having secret feelings for one another. It's also part second chance romance. They tried to be intimate once before, but failed miserably. These two characters have an amazing connection, sizzling chemistry and so much heart. They truly are perfect together. That is the part I love most about second chance romances. The discovery of new feelings, exploring it all ...more

Sex God by Marie Force is a stand-alone contemporary romance novel.
Sex God is the follow up to Sex Machine.

While Sex Machine was Blake and Honey´s book, Sex God is Garrett and Lauren´s story.
Garrett is not content with his life. He bides his time and believes he´s destinated for other things.
And there is his best friend....
I greatly enjoyed reading Sex God.
In Sex God you´ll meet old friends from Sex Machine and that I loved too.
Sex God is a witty, fun read and I was well entertained.

I am a huge fan of Marie Force's Fatal series so when the opportunity presented itself for me to read an ARC of Sex God I jumped at the chance. I will not compare the two because they are totally different but I will say that I was thrilled with this read, and in my honest opinion this lighter side of Ms Force is a great addition to her repertoire.
I did not read Sex Machine and you do not need to in order to read this book, each story can be read as a standalone. That being said I will go back a

Great book

Marie Force is by far my favorite author. It doesn't matter what she writes she manages to keep me up at night reading. With a book title of Sex God you'd assume full on trashy but it's absolutely not. This is a full on love story and good book.

"You deserve so much better than what you got from me. I think you are..."
"What? What am I?"
"You're everything."

Marie Force has done it once again!!!

Garrett and Lauren are the epitome of second chance romance mixed in with friends-to-lovers.
They have the best way of showing what "perfect timing" means!

Being friends since they were kids, they had always been around each other.
But they have hid their feelings for way too long. Between tragedies and horrible past relationships, they are finally see

I've been a fan of Marie Force's since I began exclusively reading romance in the post-Fifty Shades days of 2012. She was one of the first authors I turned to in those days, and while I may not have read every single one of the many, many wonderful books she's written, I have read an overwhelming majority of them. I've recommended them countless times, and I've never had a moment's hesitation in doing so. When I think about great contemporary romance, Marie Force is one of the first a

I've always love friend-to-lovers romance. There's some beauty about the awakening of the feelings between persons who know each other's well. And what happens between Garrett and Lauren isn't just beautiful, but explosive.

When I met those guys in Sex Machine, I was curious about the chemistry flowing around them. They were friends since six grade, they had a lot of things in common, and also there was a (little) spark there. Lauren had a bad marriage and she suffered a lot. Garrett was that fr

Another Brilliant Work Of Art From Marie Force

I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book, Sex God by Marie Force.

The amazingly talented Marie has outdone herself once again! I honestly don't think she could write anything bad if she tried.
The first book of hers I read was Georgia On My Mind and I loved it. Then I found Maid for Love, read it and I was hooked for life! I get so excited when one of Marie's Gansett Island series or Green Mountain/Butler Vermont series comes ou
