I bought this book because Ruthie Knox told me to on twitter… well, not me specifically, but I just happened to poke my head in there when she tweeted about it, and I’m glad I saw it!
In Seven Sexy Sins, we meet Faith… she’s works for a magazine and has signed on to do an article that revolves around what she refers to as “Seven Sexy Sins”. The details come out one day while sitting around with her brother and their friends, including Rusty, who Faith has crushed on for quite some time. Rusty, however, is not the settling down kind for reasons that area explained later in the book.
So, the Seven Sexy Sins – based on the seven original sins “with each relating to a ‘sexy sin’. The idea is htat your average housewife, who’s struggling in the bedroom, could show her partner the list and work through them with him.”
The catch is that Faith hasn’t actually done any of the things on this list, so she needs to find someone who will agree to them.
So, your typical friends to more kind of story, but this one is hot… they absolutely do everything on Faith’s list. The catch here of course is, can they just go back to being friends after this, AND what happens if Faith’s brother finds out. Because Rusty definitely isn’t the relationship sort… or is he?
Some of my favorite parts:
“I’m just a girl, Rusty, a girl who wants you, very, very much. I don’t need to be romanced, and I don’t need to be cajoled. And I swear, if you’re not inside me in, like, two minutes, I’m going to tie you to the bed and carry all seven sins out on you in one go, whether you like it or not.”
“Now,” she told him huskily, “whenever we’re in public, sitting with Dan and Eve and Toby, and I do this – “she licked her lips,”- you won’t see me as Dan’s little sister, or the skinny girl with braces you used to torture with crickets and cockroaches. You’ll think of my lips around you, and me taking you deep inside my mouth, swallowing as you come. Okay?”
He nodded, wide eyed, not trusting himself to speak.
And in all honesty… these are just the tip of the iceberg for this book. It’s definitely sexy, but not over the top smutty and I really enjoyed it!
