Review for Life As We Know It by J.D. Hollyfield - 5 out of 5!
Life has not been easy for Penelope Summers. Specifically, the last month, when her high-profile boyfriend dumped her, her indecent exposure record surfaced, and her favorite thing in the world, tequila, failed her.
Good thing for Penelope, she has her best friend to pick her up, and take her on the vacation of a lifetime. A seven-day cruise that will change the direction of her downward spiral. But will that spiral shift in the direction Penelope needs? Or will it throw her into a bigger whirlwind of trouble?
With Reckless Abandon as her motto, tequila as her wingman, and a hot one-night stand as her much needed reward, will the tables finally turn for Penelope, or will life as she knows it continue to fail her?
Sometimes you just have to ride the wave of crazy to find out.
MY REVIEW -
Fun, sweet, and hot! Life As We Know It is very entertaining, and I love Hollyfield's humor! The writing was spot on, and the story flowed beautifully. Penelope "Penny" Summers has just been dumped by her douchebag boyfriend because he has political aspirations and feels Penny isn't a proper girlfriend for him any longer since she has a colorful past. Penny is upsets, but with the help of her best friend, Patti, who isn't afraid to tell Penny that she is way better off without some guy who didn't want Penny for who she really is, the ladies decide to go on a cruise so Penny can soak her "sorrows" in tequila. Penny loves tequila, and at times it can get her into some sticky situations, or hey maybe it gets her into the perfect situations because Penny ends up meeting Sam, who she promptly has a very interesting night with. Fast forward a little bit, and who should be Penny's new client, but her sexy, gorgeous one night stand; well what Penny thought was going to be a one stand, and Sam proves to be a force to be reckon with when he wants a whole lot more from Penny. Penny is a tough, smart badass, who has quite the humorous thought process. Sam is nothing short of amazing, and I find him wonderfully adorable and manly. The sex scenes are hot and had a nice kink factor. Sam and Penny have some really sweet moments too, and my heart sighed plenty a time. They are so cute together! The beginning did move a little slowly for me, but once the story got moving, I really loved where the story went, and I love that we get some suspense! Life As We Know It is interesting and heartfelt, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Looking forward to reading more from J.D. Hollyfield!
