Book Description: Thalia is twenty-one and has just finished her sophomore year of college. Her new boyfriend, Liam, invites her to spend the summer with him and his family, so as she’s been unable to find a local job to keep her at college, Thalia jumps at the chance. Liam tells her that she can be his guest at his brother, Jack’s, wedding at the end of the summer.
Jack is twenty-five and feels as though he’s drowning. He’s engaged to Mia, against his will, because it’s always been drilled into him, family comes first. Jack’s studying for a law degree, and wants to go out on his own once he graduates, specialising in criminal law. His father wants him to accept a junior partnership in the law firm owned jointly by him and Lewis, his fiancées father, to practice family law.
Then he meets his brother’s girlfriend, Thalia, and he can’t get her out of his head. He needs her to keep her distance, because every time she smiles in his direction, he wants to carry her to his room and do really naughty things to her.
Then Saturday night arrives and Liam takes Thalia to a new bar that has opened on the outskirts of town, where she discovers Jack’s big secret. By day he’s the good looking, slightly older brother with a chip on his shoulder, who gives her hot looks, and by night he’s Phoenix, singer/guitar player for bad boy group ‘Deception’, who makes her sizzle to the core!
He has muscle. He has tattoos. He has piercings. He has a mouth that makes her panties wet every time he opens it. He is supposed to be getting married. He is also her boyfriend’s brother...
Book ReviewI am going to start by saying that this book was a one-click purchase that got forgotten on my tablet for a couple of months. After reading it I can honestly say that I’m glad I procrastinated on this one because I don’t have to wait very long for the next book to come out.
Okay, so there were really only two very minor things that bugged me in this book so I’ll start with those. First, I had a little trouble believing that Jack could be so easily pressured into marriage. Second, the name change from Jack to Phoenix kind of bugged me. Again, this is a pretty minor complaint and easy to overlook.
Sizzle was a great title because the book was hot. The sexual escapades of Reece and Donovan definitely made me want to read their stories when they come out. I mean what’s not to love about tattooed bad boy rockers with good hearts? I also found that the sexual tension between Jack and Thalia was well written. They really worked for me as a couple. Even though their romance moved quickly, I didn’t feel like it was forced.
Overall, this Is a hot romance and a fun read.
