Summary: In one night, I lost five years of my life. Here’s what I know …
I was homeless.
I’m a recovering drug addict.
My inked skin crawls from lustful eyes.
I have a serious aversion to women.
My gay partner is a home wrecker.
I own a gun and I’m a damn good shot.
I’m a makeup artist, but it’s an insult to my talent.
I’ve never wanted to possess anything except my Ducati … until I met Darby.
Now here’s what I know since that day in the ER when she pieced me back together … nothing—but a few random thoughts.
My new “friend” is distracting, clingy, and obsessed with acronyms, emojis, and phrases like “breakfast soul mates.”
I didn’t want to like her, but she crawled under my skin and swallowed me whole. Now we’re best friends and she’s my new addiction. I'd drink her from a shot glass, snort her up my nose, or inject her into my veins if I could. What I won’t do … is ever tell her that.
She doesn’t know me … I don’t know me. When those missing years come back, I think she will hate me … I think I will hate me.
My parents named me Patrick Roth, and this is my story.
Flirty Review: THREE LIP BITES
The summary doesn't really do this book justice. It sounds like the book will be mainly from Trick's POV, but it's really Darby that drives the book. I felt like the whole concept of the book, the plot was lost. The characters got together way too soon, about 25% into the book, and it was way too long.
I still really liked the book. The characters were endearing. Their love was warm and you could feel it through the pages. The description of the characters and the show was nicely done. The writing was good and held my interest. I could identify with Darby's character. She was personable, funny, and quick-witted. She wasn't the doormat she thought she was. I saw growth in her character. Trick was a mystery. Ann kept that up pretty well throughout the book. He was hot and sexy and really a good balance to Darby. I loved their text messages. It was cute and funny. I always melted when they started calling each other "husband" and "wife". It helped add a real depth and realness to their characters.
It's hard to really go into this story without giving things away, so I'll let you find out for yourself. This is a good read. Albeit, there are things I would change or edit if I got my hands on the manuscript, but it wasn't enough to deter me from wanting to read Ann again. She's a good writer and I don't think you will be disappointed.
