Book Review – Sweet Spot by Stella Rhys


sweet spotI’ll be the first to admit that I live at extremes. After going ten years locked in what felt like a dysfunctional marriage, I’m now decidedly boy-free. In nearly three years I’ve had no boyfriends, no flings, no dates and no sex. For the sake of my dream career, the sacrifice has been easy.  At least it was.  Until he came along.

Lukas Hendricks. He’s rude, gorgeous, arrogant – a stone-carved wall of muscle and distraction. He’s everything I know to avoid but there’s no avoiding your next-door neighbor. Oh yeah. The man now lives three steps from me and to make matters worse, he crashed into my life while I was relaxed in the tub – mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I was exposed. He looked. He laughed.

And then I locked myself out.   In short, Lukas Hendricks was trouble from the start. And me?  I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed.


4 1/2 out of 5 stars


I love when I find a little gem on Kindle Unlimited.  This book was one of those rare KU gems.

Sweet Spot is the story of Lia Pope, who (we find out at 65% in the book) is a truffle maker.  She’s looking for an investor to open a shop and get her life going.  She hears a ruckus while taking a relaxing bath, and goes into the hallway and runs smack into her neighbors brother, Lukas Hendricks.

I’m going to tell you right now this book has some laugh out loud moments.  The banter between Lukas and Lia was funny.  There was some drama in Lukas’s life, in the form of an old business partner, which made for an interesting side story.

There were a few things in the book that weren’t tied up, which I found annoying (what was in the box???).  I found that annoying.  But the characters are so good and so well written, that you can move past it.

Lukas’s past was not at all what I expected, so I was pleasantly surprised by the turn of events.  I actually liked the story and found it believable and interesting.  Lia was so amazingly strong, and really had a way of getting through to Lukas.

Overall,  I loved this story and I would highly recommend reading it.
