🌟 RELEASE BLITZ 🌟 Sex and Other Shiny Objects by Lauren Blakely {REVIEW}

Sex and Other Shiny Objects by Lauren Blakely

Release Date: January 13th 2020
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

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...

S-E-X AND OTHER SHINY OBJECTS is a standalone romance in the BOYFRIEND MATERIAL series. The other titles are ASKING FOR A FRIEND and ONE NIGHT STAND-IN.

My Review:

Have you ever wonder if the sexy scenes in romance books truly work in real life?

Lauren Blakely had managed to deliver an entertaining story full of swoon worthy moments as the characters embark on a search project that will change their lives forever.

Peyton Marie Valencia loves a good lingerie piece. Ever since her grandmother took her shopping for her first bra at 13, Peyton has always worn lace. But it became so much more meaningful when lace became her armor. It’s after her ex fiancΓ© left her that lace helped her get over him as she loved how she felt and looked. As the owner of You Look Pretty Today, a lingerie boutique, it is her mission for women to love what they are wearing for them not just to be sexy for their men.

But things start to get tough when a new store decides to take away some of her business. When her friend tells her about a new idea that she has for a book that she is helping publish, ideas fly and Peyton suddenly finds herself accepting to embark on Project Sexy Scenes Research. She will have to test out sexy scenes from the book and write if it actually works in real life or not. The only issue is that she doesn’t know who to test them with until her best friend from college, Tristan, agrees to be part of the research experiment. It was supposed to be a fun project until things began to get steamy and she couldn’t keep her hands to herself. Now she has to figure out if pursuing a relationship with him is worth gambling their friendship if it doesn’t work out in the end.

Tristan has worked really hard to run a successful business, it’s with his skills that he has been able to create a good social media presence for his restaurant. But it has taken him a lot of ups and downs to get to where he is. After losing his parents, he has become his little brother’s guardian and it has changed him in a lot of ways. Yet, the one person who has always been there for him is his best friend from college, Peyton. She was there when he needed her the most and when she asks him to be part of her search experiment, he agrees to help her. Having kissed her once before, he promised himself that he wasn’t going to fall for her again, but things quickly change when the scenes start to get all too real. Risking losing her is not an option, even if it means keeping her as his friend.

I loved the story! Laurent Blakely knows how to deliver a great story full of romance and depth. The story was clever and the characters were relatable. I loved Peyton’s message, she truly wants women to feel beautiful and to not be afraid of asking for what they want in work, in love and in bed. Her friendship with Tristan was truly entertaining and later on swoon worthy! Tristan is sweet and kind. He is a good brother and friend. He cares about Peyton and it was nice seeing them work through their obstacles in order to be together. The ending will leave you wanting for more. I would highly recommend checking out this story, you will not be disappointed. :)
