OH. MY. GOODNESS!!! First off, I am buzzing right now. Absolutely buzzing over how sweet this story was. **shivers in joy** Really, this left me feeling close to euphoric. It was so good. An absolute pleasure to read from start to stop. Every single thing I love in romance was inside the pages...
The progression between the hero and heroine was organic, so authentic, and believable. I absolutely LOVED it. I felt like I was able to live Jess and Blake's romance like it was my own. It had so much SWOON to it. Really, guys, I am still SWOONING so hard right now. I don't even know what else to say. I sort of want to write this review with three words...
READ THIS BOOK.
READ. THIS. BOOK.
READDDDDDDDD. THISSSSSSSS. BOOKKKKKKKK!
It was kick ass. When we first meet Jess and Blake they've already hooked up. Jess is in the thick of organizing her brothers wedding, and Blake wants more of Jessica. He's been thinking about their night together since they had it, and he's determined to get more. However, Jessica is not feeling it. Her life's a mess and she just wants to get this wedding done, and done well, and break some news to her parents that she's been dreading.
But Blake--sweet, sweet, Blake--is not a man who takes no. He is so charming. So darn charming. I mean, I feel like I could nosedive right into my kindle and live my life with him without ever looking back. Ha! This guy just sweeps you off your feet with a grin and a line of dialogue. That's literally all it took for Blake inspired butterflies to take flight. A good guy, funny and sweet, boisterous, but not obnoxious, Blake Riley is enchanting. I ADORED him, adored the way he cared for his family, his friends, and his teammates. He's tenacious. When Blake wants something, he wants it. And damnnnnn... the guy melts your panties off. I'm tingling just thinking about him. I'm telling you book boyfriend status here!
Jess, though, she's a bit of a mess. She's got a good heart and I loved her desire to make her family proud. She's not in a place where she's looking for anything long term, relationship wise, but with Blake she just can't keep her hands to herself, and I don't blame her.
The back and forth between our main characters is yummy. Lip lickingly yummy. Blake and Jess have a chemistry that's undeniable, it sparks off the pages, and their solid friendship warms you up from the inside out. The conversations, the wit and humor, the sex and overall pacing of this 'hookup, to friends, to lovers' story is pure perfection. I loved it. LOVED IT SO MUCH.
Also, I must say, I was already a HUGE fan of both Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen. They are fantastic writers, and I'll read anything they put out, but this, together, Goodness! Explosively awesome.
Overall, I'm a smitten mess over Good Boy. Completely enamored. I'm sure you get that from this super long, rambling review. But I'm saying, YOU NEED THIS. YOU NEED IT NOW. Trust me, you'll be melting all over the place. I'm absolutely recommending it! A sweet, heartfelt and hotttttttttt romance that will swept you off your feet. 5 stars.
