From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel. 

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.  

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s.  Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.  

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter.  Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us.  His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off.  But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room.  The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby.  Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit.  After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time.  So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner.  The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city.  He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.  

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

    I have been reading Vi Keeland for a while. I like to read an authors entire collection and then move on. I am about 3/4 through her published works and so far I adore this book. The male character is hilarious and the tension between the two characters is spot on. I think what makes this book stand out for me is that the supporting characters are also complex. They add just the right seasoning to the story. What can I say besides, this one stands out for me. So far my favorite by Vi Keeland.

    Once you start reading you will not put it down till the end of the book. Great! Need more men like Hunter! Men take note!

    Boring storyline that went nowhere. All the characters were bland. When Vi Keeland writes books by herself, they are terribly disappointing. Thank goodness for Penelope Ward. Apparently, two minds really are better than one!

    Normally read CIA/Task Force thrillers. This was a marked change but worth the change. Would recommend it. Hard to put down. Lots of ups and downs.
  • Fabulous!

    Fell in love with these characters after the first few pages! This love story leaves you satisfied in the end. That is very hard to do in in just a few hundred pages. Ms. Keeland you have a gift! Read this book! You won’t be disappointed. ❤️

    Based on the title and the synopsis, I had certain expectations when I opened this book, but let me tell you that it is nothing what I thought it would be. In fact, this story exceeded my expectations, and Sex, Not Love will be one of my favorite Vi Keeland books. Hunter is everything I love about a Vi Keeland hero. He is charismatic and oozes charm. Even when he is being cocky, he puts a smile on your face with his devilish and dirty comments. As the story progresses, readers get to see that there is more below the surface, and there are clearly ghosts from his past haunting him. The revelations about his past are not what I was expecting, but the characteristics provided a much needed layer to create complexity to his character. When this past detail is revealed, the motivation behind his decisions makes sense, and readers become even more sympathetic to his choices. I had so much respect for Natalia based on the decisions she makes in this novel. She constantly puts others ahead of herself, and I love that she takes in people who aren’t necessarily her responsibility. Her finally decision at the end of the novel, only solidified my original feelings towards her, making sure that I yearned for her to get her happy ending with Hunter. This story is a surprisingly slow burn. Even so, there is a lot of chemistry to keep readers engaged with their story. The conversations, the banter, and the flirty, dirty talk make the sexual tension authentic between them, and these two get to know each other before getting physical, making their love more believable. Vi Keeland makes this couple so likable that readers hearts will ache for the end of the eight weeks, and just like the characters, readers aren’t really sure why it is all happening. Her choice of conflict is not only perfect for story she created, but it also serves to develop the theme of loving and living to the max. Sex, Not Love will be one of my favorite Vi Keeland books. It is sexy and fun, but more than that is a story with heart and a real message about living and loving with all the time you are given.
