I used to think Hunter Delucia had stolen a piece of my heart. But I was wrong. Because eventually, even the heart stops beating. This man stole a piece of my soul—because the soul lives forever, and so will my love for this beautiful man.

SEX, NOT LOVE, the latest by Vi Keeland, has yet another absolutely perfect book boyfriend who is sure to steal your hearts. Hunter Delucia has that signature brand of cockiness and charm that Keeland contin

4.5 "OMG. LOVE." Stars! 

Opening a new Vi Keeland book is one of my most favorite things about being a romance reader. There’s just something electric about the way she tells a story. It’s addictive, so enticing, you can’t stop yourself from coming back for more. She’s definitely got the magic touch when she develops her unforgettable characters, a kind that sinks it’s claws inside you and stays put. I really think, out of all my favorite authors, she gives the most consistently solid books. You

Overall Opinion: This was a cute, sexy story. I think I had those darn expectations get me again, because I was expecting more 🤷🏻♀. I don't have any major complaints, so I didnt dislike it -- I just didn't love it like I was hoping I would. I think I wanted more time with them interacting as an actual couple. We have what felt like majority of the story with one or the other pushing away, and then we have sexy times...I guess I wanted more of when things were working well. Instead, it

I love Hunter ...just not with the heroine 😅 This is the first time that I liked the OW more than the heroine. It’s weird because I usually hate reading about the past love of the hero. But in this case, Summer and Hunter had more chemistry than him and Nat. This would’ve been a 5 star read for me if Nat wasn’t in the picture because the story of Hunter alone was enough to carry this book. I hate to admit it but I just didn’t feel the spark between the h and H. At first, I was enjoying their ban ...more

Natalia has been pretty badly hurt by her criminal ex-husband. So she's not at all ready for something serious anytime soon. But then she meets Hunter at a friend's wedding in California. But she turns him down every time he opens his sexy, dirty mouth to flirt or proposition her. Even though she's extremely attracted to the gorgeous architect.

And then suddenly, one year later, he's in New York for work and they get along really great. But then those stupid feelings start happening and she just

This book left me completely smitten with the banter and the hero, Hunter!!

Why do I read so fast?! Ms. Keeland is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. I’ve loved everything I’ve read from her. I eagerly await a book I know is coming. And I dive in as soon as it hits my Kindle. Sex, Not Love ticked all the boxes of what I love about romance most specifically a Keeland romance, and then some.

Nat and Hunter are opposites. Though neither are looking for “the one”, Nat finds herself trying to keep distance between the allure of her best friends’ husband’s best friend.

Sex, Not Love was an okay book but I had some issues with it. I liked Hunter and Natalia and their story was pretty interesting. What ruined it for me were all of the distractions that kept popping up.

There were multiple flash backs to Hunter's past and it honestly made no sense to me. When they first started they didn't link to the present, at least not in any way I could see. So they just confused me and I was left wondering why I should care. Even when I finally

It is too frustrating for me. DNF at %20.

Up until page 215 0f a 255-page book, all chapters written by the hero are about his past and the girl he loved in the past.

After realising Hunter is telling about his ex-love in his chapters, I checked how far it goes and it goes too long to bear!

Why the hell does a writer do this? Why not summarize what happened with her in a few paragraphs or one or two pages but devote so much of the book to it? So that we feel a connection to his ex? Too bad, I did

I loved this book with all my heart! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This book was so beautifulll! And the ending was perfect. Arnold is the reason why I still believe in true love. Presents like this one are pure gold!
Natalia and Hunter were such a nice couple (I don't even know if couple is the right word, but anyway...). Hunter was... I have no words. A thoughtful, gorgeous man. The kind of man I would be lucky to have in my life someday. I adored his relationship with Izzy. What is there not to like about this guy?!

My excitement for Vi Keeland’s releases is always over the top. I find her stories have a very especial way to grab me because they have a little bit of everything in them. So, of course, I was excited about Sex, Not Love. Vi’s creations always sound so good to me and it’s very difficult for me not to love everything this woman writes. She is an absolute auto-buy author to me and I am glad to say she did not disappoint with this release.

Fortunately for me Sex, Not Love did not leave me with the same lackluster feelings as Beautiful Mistake. The lovely Six may have disowned me as a friend and buddy-reader if that had of happened.

I liked this one a lot. Vi Keeland is such a talented, solid writer that never ceases to amaze me with her original stories, and this one is no exception. This particular story caught me by surprise, especially towards the end and I truly enjoyed that.

As the blurb states, Hunter and Natalia meet when they were both in the wedding party of their respective best friends and immediately have an attraction/connection. I will say that the romance in this story moves along kinda slow. There is a few e
2,5 Stars.

Hunter and Natalia met before during their friend’s wedding and feel immediately attracted to each other. But she gives him a wrong number and they don’t have the chance to meet again until almost a year later, when their friend’s son is born. This time she gives him his mother number but it backfires when he manages to charm her.
It is supposed to be a temporary physical fling. Neither of them wants or is looking for something serious. Unfortunately things are not always that way.

Hunter Delucia and Natalia Rossi meet at their respective friends' wedding rehersal, and the sparks fly immediately. Nat's coming off a broken marriage where her charming husband totally destroyed her trust, so she's not really looking to be charmed by a handsome man again. Hunter is nothing but sexy charm. And wildly inappropriate dirty talk. Nat can't help but be attracted to him. Her body says yes, but her head says "no way". After a drunken night spent together aft

You know when you read a Vi Keeland book that you're always going to get a great Hero...a little cocky, a lot sweet and all kinds of trouble. And Hunter is no exception.

He meets Natalia, aka Nat, at their best friend's wedding. Anna and Derek warn them off each other but of course, that only encourages them, at least Hunter because he always gets what he wants.

Nat blows him off with a wrong phone number and they don't see each other again for nine months...for Anna's baby shower. They en

Everything about this story was.. wonderful!

I love this author’s sexy, fun reads so I didn’t waste any time diving into Hunter and Nat’s story!
Meeting at a wedding and sharing instant chemistry had Hunter and Nat beginning an uncomplicated, complicated relationship dance. What did they want out of any type of relationship? How could it possibly work? Casual was the key…

Mutual friends and a doggedness on Hunter’s part that was sweetly stalkerish, meant both of the

Sex, Not Love was one of my most anticipated reads, which is no surprise considering Vi Keeland is one of my favorite authors, I’m just sorry it took me so long to get there. She could write a book about watching paint dry and I would still pick it up and read. To me no one writes a cocky, dirty talking, arrogant alpha with a soft side quite like Vi and Hunter Delucia was no exception. I really loved this one and it was well wo
