Wanted: One night together, no strings attached. Hold me, make love to me, treat me like I’m the most important person in the world. No talking. No names. And don’t be surprised if I’m gone in the morning.
After crushing on my best friend for years, I realize he’ll never want someone inexperienced like me. So I decide to get it over with, play the V-card once and for...more
one virginal nurse (Teo) who's in love with his "straight" best friend and scared of flying
one sexy-as-sin pilot (Jack) who relies on hookups because he doesn't think he's relationship material (and because he still feels guilty about walking away from his ex, who was a good guy)
- well-meaning family (especially Jack's slightly nosy but truly supportive sister)
- a few oblivious friends
- an awkward encounter with an ex-boyfriend
- serious lack of communication (why, oh, why cou ...more
This one will easily find its way onto my 2020 favourites list when the year is through, of that I have no doubt.
I was initially drawn in by the set-up, with inexperienced and lovesick Teo — a twenty-six-year-old nurse — sending out an unconventional message on a hook-up app, looking for a man to make love to him, with an emphasis on feeling cherished, for one night only; no words shared.
This request catches pilot Jack’s eye immediately, even if it is outside the parameters of his usual ...more
A very cute and romantic story. I only wanted to read the sample, but once I started reading it, I didn't want to put it down. And for the most part, I really enjoyed it.
I loved Teo and Jack as main characters. Both are sweet, kind and caring and I loved their connection and chemistry right from the start. Most of the side characters were lovely, too. Maybe a bit unrealistic, but I didn' ...more
This was a cute, fun and low angst romance that I had a good time reading but I'm probably not ever going to think about it again.
I hate Chris and just waiting for Teo to turn him down was exhausting because it took longer than I thought it would for Teo to make that decision. I also wanted a clear confrontation with Chris which didn't happen and it left me a lit ...more
I know I'm in the minority here but this story was too sweet and angst free for my taste. It started very good, I was sure I will love this until the end, BUT Teo still loving Chris, who was SO annoying, really got on my nerves!!!
Jack was amazing, super hot and kind and sweet. He didn't deserve to be somehow put on the second place, after Chris. Ugh!
The fake boyfriend trope... The over the top sweetness... Just nope from me. I am sorry. I should have known better. This author writes s ...more
ORIGINAL EBOOK REVIEW March 2020:
The feels will make you soar!
To stranded lovers
To fake boyfriends
To real boyfriends
Teo has been in love with his bisexual bestie for a decade. Chris, the bestie keeps ...more
I wasn't quite sure how everything with Chris was going to turn out, but I had high hopes he would be thoroughly put in his place. Well, that was not what happened.
I absolutely loved Teo. He was cute and sweet and just adorable overall. But why he was best friends with a douchebag like Chris? I had no idea. I never once felt like I could understand what Teo saw in him. Chris was a manipulative asshat ...more
This was great. Loved Jack and Teo.
I really didn't like Chris. And had no idea what Teo saw in him. I was afraid the pining for him would get on my nerves but I thought it all played out well.
The "shower" scene at Teo's apartment is my only reason for the 1/2 star deduction. Such an eye-roll inducing addition to the story. But it could've been worse.
Great banter. Plenty of delicious sexy times. Likable secondary characters (minus Chris of course).
Looking forward to Rourke and Ty's boo ...more

I stuck in my reading slump for a while now, so I thought for a change of scenery going for something light, help to get out of my funk. But unfortunately, it didn’t work out, it was too sweet and I got bored. Considering all the good reviews, it’s me and not the book so don’t mind me and go for it, hope you enjoy it!
I loved both Teo and Jack, and I loved the people that they were as much as I loved them together. I read the whole story *as long as Chris was out-of-sight-out-of ...more
Teo’s cute and sweet, Jack is dreamy in every respect, and the story of their fake relationship turning – unsurprisingly – into more is well told and totally engaging. Lucy Lennoy does it in style and with a lot of heart.
Their first ‘date’ is different and sizzles with chemistry, and I thoroughly enjoyed the bumpy road to self-discovery for Teo and the ‘falling in love against the odds’ for Jack.
I agree with some readers that it was hard to understand why Teo is holdin ...more
This had a really good beginning but focused so much on OM. I guess it's my fault for not reading the blurb, but I don't care for "I'm in love with someone else so let's pretend to be together so I can make them jealous". Besides that, I found the last half of the book somewhat cliche and I was skimming/pushing myself to the end. I wouldn't have minded this trope so much if there was less focus on Chris the asshole. ...more
-A sexy pilot
-An adorable caregiver
-Casual to more
-The first intimate scene: wowsers!
-Great secondary cast - minus Chris, the f*cktard. I HATED him.
-The epilogue: Jack and Teo were perfect for each other.
A thoroughly enjoyable read, I needed the happy escape Virgin Flyer provided.
4.25 stars, recommended read.
I would have enjoyed expansion on a few plot points. The ending felt quite abrupt. However, my main complaint is this could have as easily been an MF romance by changing one MC's name. Totally personal preference as I like more grit in my novels and this was sweet as cotton candy. ...more
I didn't think it was possible for Lucy Lennox to write a couple I love more than Blue and Tristan in Borrowing Blue but I was wrong.
I am absolutely, head-over-heels in love with Jack and Teo. OMG this story was everything. EVERYTHING.
Teo is in love with his childhood best friend. He is desperate for affection from him, and when the promise of more hangs in the balance, he makes a decision to gain ...more
I loved Teo, I loved Jack and I loved both of them as a couple. This book was the perfect mixture of snark,banter, feels and some pretty good sexy times. It also had a great set of solid secondary characters I enjoye ...more
I'm in love with Jack and Teo! OMG the chemistry between them is super sexy and EPIC!
Jack never knew that one weird request from his latest one night stand would be making him head over heels for Teo. The VIRGIN who needed to get over his best friend he fell in love forever.
At least for a while until Chris realize that Teo loved him. But Chris though he knew that Teo loved him.
I hated Chris for tagging ...more
Gosh, I love Lucy Lennox characters. I will remember this story for a long time to come. It's fabulous !

Oh, you guys, I just loved this one! It is so super sweet and yummy and I totally fell in love with Teo and Jack. These guys are both so absurdly likable, I found it impossible not to adore them. They are generous and caring and selfless. They love their families and are kind hearted. Teo and Jack should have been too good to be true, but somehow Lucy Lennox manages to make them endearing and lovely, rather than overly sweet. I just couldn’t help but root for the ...more
