Hit the Spot by J. Daniels is here! Check out my review, an excerpt of the book and a fabulous giveaway below!
I’ll admit, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Jamie when I read Four Letter Word (I’m pretty over player heroes) but I was excited for the prospect of an enemies-to-lovers romance, and I really liked Tori. I couldn’t wait to see how Jamie would be in love, with no OW drama, and J. Daniels didn’t disappoint me. The Jamie in this book might the same crude, no-filters kind of guy as he was in the previous book, but his eyes and attention are all on Tori. I loved the banter and the chemistry between these two – if you’re looking for a romance with a well-done enemies-to-lovers trope, then I highly recommend Hit the Spot!
To say Tori has a less-than-stellar first impression of Jamie would be an understatement. He’s a manwhore through and through, completely dismissive of love and relationships, and she wants nothing to do with him. Jamie, though, can’t seem to stay away from her and is determined to get her into his bed. It’s nothing but constant barbs and banter between these two… until Jamie ups the stakes and challenges Tori to a bet: the first person to give in and beg for sex from the other loses, and they can’t sleep with anyone else in the meantime.
I closed my eyes. God. What was more dangerous? The heartbreaker or the breath-stealer. Player Jamie or the man who let me touch him like he was mine.
I didn’t know.
Tori and Jamie give as good as they get trying to make the other lose – and I had the best time reading about it. It was so fun and amusing to read about these two taunting and teasing each other. Their shenanigans definitely had me giggling. But more than that, there was something deeper going on in between the taunts and quips – Tori starts seeing Jamie as more than the player that he used to be, so is it possible to trust her heart with him? Jamie, we learn, has always wanted Tori – both her body and her heart. And he’ll do whatever it takes to win all of her and keep her for himself.
I wanted everything. Her body, her mind, her sanity. Having her break into my house or coming to my fucking work. I wanted her ruined.
I wanted Tori Rivera as fucked up and crazy about me as I was about her.
Hit the Spot is such a fun read. It’s a funny, sexy, feel-good romance that had me glued to the pages. I ended up losing all my reservations about Jamie and he totally stole my heart by the end – he and Tori make the most adorable, crazy couple ever. One thing that got on my nerves though, was the ‘alpha’ way Jamie talked – I quickly got tired of all his dropped g’s and never using the subject in a sentence. But if you have no problem with alpha-male speak, then this shouldn’t be a problem for you. Otherwise, besides that, I adored Hit the Spot. It was the perfect fun read to take my mind off my upcoming finals. If you love J. Daniels and especially if you enjoyed Four Letter Word, you should definitely get your hands on Hit the Spot!
