I really enjoyed this book’s predecessor, Diamond Girl, but Love Plus One really blew my mind on another level.
“I’m not looking to get hurt, Taz. I’m just looking to get laid.”
Overall, I liked both these characters…despite Lindsey’s latest emotional turmoil, she is a self-possessed and strong heroine. There were some points that I thought she could have been more cautious and listened to advice, but I forgave her due to not having all the necessary information. Taz is an unapologetic manwhore at first, but he’s smart and loyal to a fault. When he does get with the boyfriend program, he’s so sweet that it’ll melt your heart into a puddle of goo.
I really enjoyed Taz and Lindsey together. Holy hotness they give good sexy time!! Also, I enjoyed their evolution from no-strings attached to falling in love. This being the G-Man series there’s a suspense subplot in the background that has lots of twists and turns that are related to Lindsey’s father to keep things interesting. Although I appreciated the updates on Sammie, Lindsey’s mom, and Slate here and loved Sammie in Diamond Girl, I wasn’t her biggest fan here. The hypocrisy is real…that’s all I’ll say. Me, when Lindsey calls her on it…
Overall, another well-written and fast-paced read that kept me engaged and wanting more until the very end. Though there is one brutal scene that I wasn’t prepared for involving Lindsey…seriously didn’t see that coming and it deserved a warning.
