Life had changed for Lexie when her husband went to greener pastures at work, and she was left bringing up her soon to be ex-husband’s son, Connor, juggling at her job, and paying those bills. Basically what we call adulting. But with only her best Theo as her support, she managed until one drunken night…

They became FBB. Friends with Benefits.

Having read many books by this talented author, I knew Lisa Swift would give me more than a drunken fumble. And I was right. She gave me genuine emotions, real life problems and a step-son who was dealing with his sexuality.

With the re-entry of her not-so-much of an ex, her life toppled over and what was to be sexy-me time became angsty and teary. That louse!! But fear not, author Lisa Swift was present with the bold strokes of color to show what Lecie was all about. It was amazing to see this courageous woman find her way through explosive emotional mines.

The story had well etched characters, hot steamy romps between the sheets, and implosion of feelings. Don’t I know how to zap my Saturday?

Could Mr Right-Now actually be Mr Right?

Lexie Whittle thought she had life all sewn up, with a gorgeous husband, a beautiful home and a delightful teenage stepson. Until husband Daryl left to work overseas…and everything changed.

A year later, Daryl and Lexie’s marriage is over. Lexie is fighting to stay on top of the bills, juggling her job at the Blue Parrot 1940s cafe in Leyholme with being mum and dad to stepson Connor in Daryl’s absence.

The only thing keeping her from meltdown is the support she gets from Connor’s godfather: Theo Blake, Daryl’s former business partner. Theo might be a jack-the-lad, drifting from one woman to another, but Lexie knows she and Connor can depend on him.

After one too many glasses of wine leads to them falling into bed together, Lexie and Theo begin a friends-with-benefits relationship. What starts as just sex soon becomes something deeper.

But when Daryl returns, Lexie is faced with an impossible decision. Will she be forced to choose between her feelings for Theo and the boy she loves as a son?

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.

  1. You made me laugh with this comment, “I knew Lisa Swift would give me more than a drunken fumble.” I am glad you enjoyed this one, but with steamy scenes between the sheets, I will pass.
