In my reading/reviewing – I feel im on the generous side with the “I really like it 4stars” and stingy with the “OMG I totally LOVE it 5stars”. A book has to be pretty much perfect in every way for me to give it a 5 star rating. I dont have a certain fixed list of criteria but just the way I feel reading it and after its finished – its what im looking for in a read at the time. But its rare that I find the diamond in the rough.
Marie Force hit the nail squarely on the 5star head with Sex Machine! Blake and Honey’s story had everything I needed to keep me engrossed in their story. Honestly when I started with the first few pages I thought it was just going to be some funny, dirty (albeit well-written) smutty story to occupy a few hours of my time. What I wasnt expecting was the depth of the characters and how the connection of their past (Blake and Honey) would draw me in and make me NEED to keep reading. Not just for the naughty parts (although they were amazing) but to see where they had come from… to see where they would end up, to see if they were going to be ok. I became emotionally invested in them.
I wont give away any spoilers about the story itself but I will say this.. There is a lot of sex in the book (woohoo!) but there is a WHOLE LOT more to it than just sex. Its a very well rounded read and I enjoyed it immensely.
I’m not even going to lie to you right now, this was one of my favorite books to read this year. It had everything I crave in a book….a good story, super steamy love scenes and a side of angst that made my heart break. Once I started reading I could not put this down. I was useless to the outside world.
This is a story about Honey and Blake, who have been friends for yeeeaaarrrrss BUT have never crossed that line into anything else. Blake is a sex god who can make you have multiple orgasms just by looking at you. Honey, wants to know what that’s like so she propositions him and well….you could say the rest was history but oh no, there is so much more than that. Do these two like each other? Yes. Is the sex of the charts? Yes. Does Blake break is own rules to be with her, yes. Does Honey fall, absolutely. How could you not when you basically have the perfect package of a man wrapped up into Blake Dempsey IF only you could break past that wall he has had in place since he was a teenager. This is their story, and oh what a story it is!!
OH THE FEELS this story gave me. Again, I repeat, I loved this book and I loved it HARD! I 100% recommend this as MUST READ!
