The second the test-the-sexy-scenes offer landed in my lap, I said yes.
After all, I've been damn curious about a few things I've read in romance novels. Do buttons truly go flying across the floor when you rip off a guy's shirt? Is staircase sex hella hot or does it leave you with a big old bruise mark on your back? And don’t even get me started on all that panty shredding, and whether it even works.
Time to find out as I embark on Project Sexy Scenes Research, at the request of my hotshot book editor bestie.
All I need is a willing scene partner. Enter Tristan, my best guy friend. The witty, tell-it-like-it-is, bearded hottie volunteers for the experiment.
He's also the guy who gave me the most devastating, toe-curling kiss of my life ten years ago. But nothing has happened since then.
And nothing will come between my panties and our friendship now since we have a plan to keep it PG.
But once the buttons start flying, all bets are off..

Fresh, Flirty and Fun friends-to-lovers story
Peyton gets a second chance with Tristan in this friends-to-lovers sexy Rom-com by Blakely. Given an opportunity to test the reality of romance novel scenarios (think: buttons popping when ripping off shirts, tearing off panties with teeth) and help her lingerie business at the same time, Peyton and Tristen get together to run the “experiments.” Even with the predictable trope, Blakely’s writing is, as always, fresh, flirty and fun, delivering a thoroughly enjoyable and light story.
It’s COLOMBIA not Columbia, when referring to the country.
Anyone who reads contemporary romance with explicit sex scenes has read about flying shirt buttons, strenuous stairway or slippery sex in the shower and the ease of ripping $25 panties and whether or not the author has done her homework and tried all the crazy calisthenics in her books. Only Lauren Blakely would write a book that tests all of those theories and I’m so glad she did. This book was witty, endlessly amusing and sexy-as-hell and now enquiring minds have been satisfied in a most spectacular way. And by the way, don’t try the bathtub sex; it’s much more fun in the jacuzzi! I read an early copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
