ARC Review: Sweet Spot by Stella Rhys

Title: Sweet Spot
Author: Stella Rhys
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Type: Standalone
POV: First Person – Dual
Expected Publication: March 30, 2017


Our first meeting as neighbors was screwed from the start.
He was hot. I was naked. And we had no chance in hell at ever being platonic.

I’ll be the first to admit that I live at extremes. After going ten years locked in what felt like a dysfunctional marriage, I’m now decidedly boy-free. In nearly three years I’ve had no boyfriends, no flings, no dates and no sex. For the sake of my dream career, the sacrifice has been easy.

At least it was.

Until he came along.

Lukas Hendricks. He’s rude, gorgeous, arrogant – a stone-carved wall of muscle and distraction. He’s everything I know to avoid but there’s no avoiding your next-door neighbor. Oh yeah. The man now lives three steps from me and to make matters worse, he crashed into my life while I was relaxed in the tub – mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I was exposed. He looked. He laughed.

And then I locked myself out.

In short, Lukas Hendricks was trouble from the start. And me?

I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed.


ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

After ten years of being stuck in an unhealthy relationship, Lia Pope was finally ready to move on. With a new city, came a new hope for a brighter future especially with her chocolate business about to kick off, so the last thing she needed was a distraction from an irresistible new neighbor.

Lukas Hendricks barged into her life at the most inconvenient moment. With his good looks and sometimes infuriating personality, he planted himself into her life. But both of them would have to face their past for a future together.

My reading usually involved dark or in the feels kind of books. But once in a while I do need a break from all the “bad things” and enjoy something light – provided it’s sexy. Well, this book certainly fit the bill.

I’d never felt it before and I normally hated the unfamiliar but I was pretty sure I didn’t hate this. I was pretty sure I loved it.

I like how Lia was driven. After not putting herself first for years, she finally doing something for herself and she did it all in her own.

She was my distraction from the darkness – the complete shitstorm that should be my life right now.

Lukas was sexy. He had some caveman tendency but nothing too much to make him annoying. I like how he had nurturing quality despite a certain aspect of his life.

I love how they met. It was funny and cute. The story was smooth sailing from beginning to end. Personally I’d like a bigger conflict, but that’s just the emotional pain whore in me talking haha!

My nails clawed against my door, my naked breasts shaking in front of me as Lukas growled against my skin, his fingers fucking me so hard my orgasm took barely a second to mount.

If you love food and sex (which sane woman doesn’t hmm?? Lol!) there were plenty of those in this book. It surely would satisfy both needs. Mmm… yum!

Sweet Spot is a fun, sexy story of two people helping each other to move on from their past. It would appeal to readers looking for a light, easy reading.

Final Verdict:

This review is also available on Goodreads.

Stella Rhys is an author of contemporary romance and can’t help but write it hot, steamy and borderline filthy (just kidding, it’s flat-out filthy). Writing aside, she lives for coffee, the Yankees and cooking recipes way out of her league. She was born and raised in New York and now lives there with her husband and charmingly entitled fur baby.
