The thing is, I’m the play-it-safe girl next door and my neighbor is Cooper Bentley, catcher for the Yankees and all-around alpha-hole … or so I thought.When he comes over to fix my leaky sink—not a euphemism, unfortunately—he finds my list of New Year’s Resolutions.

And also my Google search history.

Deep down I want to try something new. I’m not a virgin, but the sex I’ve had is vanilla.

Now Cooper knows my naughty side … and he makes me a new list.

My Kinky Resolutions.

Suddenly ball gags, threesomes, and fetishes are all I can think about.

When Cooper offers to be my sex guru there’s no turning back.

This new year is going to start with a bang. Literally.

Sara’s Review

3.5/5 Stars!

I really liked this book.  I really did.  It was funny and light-hearted.  I thought it was a fun take on the “let’s make a sex list and check things off” trope.

Gracie and Cooper were both great characters.  The best friends?  Not so much.  Bridget, Gracie’s bestie, was really holding Gracie back.  She griped and complained that Gracie never did anything and got all butt hurt when Gracie wouldn’t go out with her.  Gabe, Cooper’s best friend, was kind of a stick in the mud.  Supportive but not supportive.

See, how this is all over the place?  Well, sometimes that’s how I felt reading the book.  The book takes place over a year.  After the second thing they check off the list, Cooper is developing feelings for Gracie and I think she is, too, but it’s a bit unclear, because, honestly, for as smart as Gracie is, she is a bit on the flaky side.  They do end up checking everything off the list and there is an HEA, which is a bit rushed.  Speaking of rushed.  Gracie goes from 0 to 100 in terms of her sexual prowess and proclivities, which over a year, I could understand, but not when she and Cooper are separated for months at a time.

Remember, I read with an overly critical eye, so I tend to nitpick.  Overall, it was an entertaining read with lots of spicy sex and witty banter, great main characters and some seriously outrageous scenes.

Excerpt
It’s probably good I can’t see his face … I’m already a complete ball of nervous energy, have been all week. With my eyes covered, it’s easier to pretend this is a dream.“And what are we doing in your apartment?” I ask, knowing I’m already here. Cooper’s place smells different, cedar and coffee to my rosemary and basil. His place is a lower temperature, and the floors are all hardwood here.

“We are going to start your list, Gracie.” His hands are on my face, cupping my cheeks, his mouth so close to mine. I feel his words as they brush against my lips and I inhale sharply realizing this is it.

Cooper is going to kiss me.

The list is real. NYE wasn’t a dream. And he is in control.

“Do you still want to do this?” he asks. His hands move from my cheeks to the base of my neck, and he somehow manages to lift my chin as I sink into his hold.

“What do you think?” I say breathless and hot. Realizing I want this so badly. In ways I have never expressed to anyone because how exactly do you tell someone you are horny as hell without looking a little bit crazy?

But I am.

“I think you’ve been waiting for me to show up for two weeks straight. I think you’ve been staring at the little list of yours, fantasizing about what we would do first.”

“And did you decide?” I ask, swallowing, my chest pounding and my heart whole.

“Yes. I thought long and hard, Gracie.”

“How hard?” I tease, the corners of my mouth upturned and I squeeze my eyes shut tight, even though they are covered because it is insane to think that I am here making sexual innuendos with the Cooper Bentley.

“So very hard.” He presses his body against mine and I feel exactly how hard he is.

Very.
