Feeling so good!
Derek comes to town to help his sister with her kids when he is arrested by Officer Perri. She is sexy, hot and cute in in eyes. Both think the same of each other and what they didn’t know was that faith had something in store for them. Neither want a relationship but they need each other to participate in a kissing contest...No spoilers. Their story is intense and captivating. The cast of characters makes this story so much fun to read and will entertain you for many hours. I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this arc.
feisty and flirty characters
THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR by Lauren Blakely is a contemporary, adult, stand alone erotic, romance story line focusing on paramedic Derek McBride, and police officer Perri Keating. Perri and Derek were first introduced in the author’s Best Laid Plans. THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR is part of a series of interconnected by stand alone romance tales. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary.
NOTE: Some of the events of THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR cross over and run parallel to the events of BEST LAID PLANS.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Perri and Derek) THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR follows the roommates to lovers relationship between paramedic Derek McBride, and police officer Perri Keating. Derek’s arrival in Whiskey Hollows, California is met by police officer Perri Keating when our motorcycle-riding hero prefers speed to following the rules. While his brother in law serves in the Middle East, Derek transfers to California to help his sister and her three young, rambunctious children. Needing a place to stay Derek soon discovers that his new landlord and roommate is none other than Officer Perri Keating, the sexy cop who pulled him over for driving too fast. With a fund raiser on the horizon, Perri seeks out our hero in an effort to procure the winning kiss. What ensues is the building relationship and romance between Perri and Derek, and the potential fall-out as Perri struggles with a lack of direction in both her private and professional life.
Perri Keating is attracted to the look of a bad boy and Derek McBride’s tattoos and muscles fit the bill. Neither Perri nor Derek is looking for a serious relationship, but the heart wants something different when emotions get involved. Agreeing to a ‘friends with benefits’ type of relationship as they practice for the upcoming fund-raiser, our couple will develop feelings that threaten their non-relationship status, and any potential happily ever after. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense.
There are a large number of colorful and sassy secondary and supporting characters including Derek’s sister Jodie and her three children; police chief Jeff Jansen and his wife Theresa; fellow EMS paramedics Henry Granger, Hunter, and Perri’s brother Shaw Keating, and their parents Gail and Sam, as well as Perri’s friends Vanessa, and Arden and Gabe Harrison (Best Laid Plans); Vanessa and Shaw’s story line is next in NOBODY DOES IS BETTER.
THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR is a story of friendship, family, desire and love. The premise is entertaining and energetic; the characters are feisty and flirty; the romance is spicy and hot. Lauren Blakely pulls the reader into a seductive and breath taking look at a passionate romance with a happily ever after.
