Chelsea Craig’s life is perfect, until her husband David runs off with his paralegal. During the mandatory sixty-day waiting period before the divorce is finalized, Chelsea decides to transform herself into a woman David can’t resist. Revamping her life isn’t easy, though, and Chelsea lands in one embarrassing predicament after another. Luckily, Nick, a smoldering local cop, happily rushes to her rescue. Convinced that a fling with Nick couldn’t hurt, Chelsea embraces the sizzling chemistry they share. But when the separation period draws to a close, Chelsea begins to question whether she’s been working all this time to salvage a relationship with the wrong man.
Nick was quiet during the drive, giving me more than enough time to panic. I wasn’t good with silence. I needed meaningless banter.
“That was pretty low, cutting me off at the bar.”
“A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.”
“I hate clichés.”
“Well, desperate times call for desperate measures,” he said, grinning.
“You better be nice or I’ll change my mind.”
He turned to me. “So you admit you were bluffing?”
“I admit nothing.”
He reached his hand out to my thigh then shifted it northward. My entire body tensed at the sensation of his fingers pressing against me through my panties.
“I like the boots,” he said calmly.
I would’ve responded, but I could barely breathe, let alone speak, with his hand resting there.
“And the skirt is hot, too, although I would’ve preferred it without the undergarments.”
He turned into my driveway, killed the engine, and opened my car door before I had even registered that his hand had left my body. I dawdled unlocking the front door, and then paused in the kitchen.
“Can I get you a drink?”
“No,” he said. And he leaned in and kissed me. The kiss began innocently, with a fair amount of space between our bodies, and with Nick’s hands resting politely on my hips. Within moments though, his tongue was in my mouth and his hands had shifted to my butt. I tried to focus on deciding once and for all if I could really go through with this, but instead all I could think about was his soft tongue, his perfect smell, and his firm ass. That’s when I realized I was groping him.
A quick, sexy, steamy and absolutely fun romance!
I had so much fun reading Sixty Days for Love by Liza Malloy. It’s easy to read, amusing, and swoony.
After reading the first chapter and that adorably hilarious meet cute between Nick and Chelsea, I knew I would have a good time reading this book. It’s lighthearted, sweet, funny and cheesy at times, but absolutely so fun! The plot does have a few flaws and some scenes are a bit cringy (and not in a good way), but I thought the story overall is well-written. I got hooked right away and even though there are some slow parts, I was engrossed and entertained until the very end. I liked the characters, the romance is swoony, and enjoyed all the heartwarming and humorous moments. The ending did feel a bit rushed, but it still managed to melt my heart and leave a smile on my face.
Chelsea is a great heroine. She’s fun, likable, and an adorable mess. She somehow always ends up in hilarious mishaps that I thought was really amusing and cute. She’s also quite quirky, funny, nerdy, and just a really sweet person. I definitely rooted for her the entire time.
Nick is an amazing love interest. He’s charming, sexy, intriguing, and a bit mysterious. He’s totally swoon-worthy boyfriend material, but, I must admit… I wasn’t always 100% sure about Nick and kept going back and forth with how I felt about him. In the end, I realized that he’s obviously not perfect and has his own issues to deal with (like we all do).
I liked the romance and chemistry between Chelsea and Nick, but to be honest, I personally wasn’t into the “arrangement” and it bothered me a bit. There’s also this one scene that did not sit well with me, so I felt a little less charmed by Nick… at least for a little while. Having said that, Nick certainly and slowly won me over again. I liked how he’s protective, encouraging, and always there when Chelsea needs him. Deep down, he truly cares about her and just wants her to be happy. I also really enjoyed their bantering, flirting, conversations, and all their steamy intimate moments. I just really wanted Chelsea and Nick to figure out whatever is going on between them, admit how they really feel for each other and finally be together.
This book is a quick, fun, sexy and entertaining read perfect for a relaxing night in, lounging by the pool, or soaking the sun at the beach.
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts are my own.
Liza Malloy writes contemporary romance, new adult romance, women’s fiction, and fantasy romance. She’s a sucker for alpha males, bad boys, dimples, and muscles, and she can’t resist a man in uniform. Liza loves creating worlds where the heroine discovers her own strength and finds her Happily Ever After. When Liza isn’t reading or writing torrid love stories, she’s a practicing attorney. Her other passions include gummy bears, jelly beans, and the occasional marathon. She lives in the Midwest with her four daughters and her own Prince Charming. Sixty Days for Love and For Love and Italian are her first published novels. She has two more steamy romances slated for release in 2019.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
