- Cover Reveal: Unfound by Christy Sloat
SQUEE!!!!! Today we have the awesomesauce book Sizzle by Lexi Buchanan on our blog!!
Thalia is twenty-one and has just finished her sophomore year of college. Her new boyfriend, Liam, invites her to spend the summer with him and his family, so as she’s been unable to find a local job to keep her at college, Thalia jumps at the chance. Liam tells her that she can be his guest at his brother, Jack’s, wedding at the end of the summer.
Jack is twenty-five and feels as though he’s drowning. He’s engaged to Mia, against his will, because it’s always been drilled into him, family comes first. Jack’s studying for a law degree, and wants to go out on his own once he graduates, specializing in criminal law. His father wants him to accept a junior partnership in the law firm owned jointly by him and Lewis, his fiancées father, to practice family law.
Then he meets his brother’s girlfriend, Thalia, and he can’t get her out of his head. He needs her to keep her distance, because every time she smiles in his direction, he wants to carry her to his room and do really naughty things to her.
Then Saturday night arrives and Liam takes Thalia to a new bar that has opened where she discovers Jack’s big secret. By day he’s the good looking, slightly older brother with a chip on his shoulder, who gives her hot looks, and by night he’s Phoenix, singer/guitar player for bad boy group ‘Deception’, who makes her sizzle to the core!
He has muscle. He has tattoos. He has piercings. He has a mouth that makes her panties wet every time he opens it. He is supposed to be getting married. He is also her boyfriend’s brother...

His pierced nipple was right in front of my face. I grinned, leaned in and licked him. I felt him shudder against me. I wanted to explore. I moved my hand that was resting on his back, and stroked up his side to his nipple and rubbed. He growled. “Thalia…”
Taking his nipple and piercing into my mouth, I flicked the silver ring with my tongue then lapped at his nipple, pushing him onto his back with me sprawling over his chest.
He kept groaning, holding my head in place, while I moved to his other nipple, giving it the same treatment, before moving back to the pierced one. I couldn’t get enough of him.
His cock had started to twitch between my thighs, as I started to move south with my hands and mouth.
Phoenix had the body of a God, all hard muscle, with no body hair. While I licked down his body, his stomach muscles quivered, his cock was rock hard against me, and his nipples were hard pebbles. Every time I flicked the silver ring, he’d break out in goose bumps.
Then his pierced cock came into view, and this time it was my stomach that fluttered. He was hard as hell with the tip weeping, trickling down to the silver. I licked my lips.
He arched his hips into me. “Thalia, I need you, babe,” he groaned.
Kneeling between his thighs, I admired the view. I could see right between his legs to his hairless balls. He was watching me through heavily lidded eyes. I grinned, leaned forward and placed my hands on his thighs. Teasing the tip of his cock with my breath, I smiled at his groan, before I licked him from root to tip like an ice cream cone.
He nearly bolted from the bed.
I licked back down the length of him, sucking one of his balls into my mouth, while I smoothed up and down his cock with my hand. Gripping him tightly, I pulled slightly to the root and keeping my hand there, massaged his other ball in my mouth. His thighs started to shake as I kept my hand tight around the root of him, while I licked the pre-cum up.
“I’m going to make you come by using my mouth on the head.” I quickly sucked the tip into my mouth and kept flicking the silver bar with my tongue, trying not to grind my pussy against his leg. With Phoenix under me, letting me do what I wanted to him, I was so damn wet and aching.
“Get that pussy up here.”
OK... this is a hard book for me to write a review. I had so many mixed feelings while reading this, that I felt like I needed to be on meds for bi-polar disorder! I loved, hated, despised, loathed, admired, and just plain out wanted to throat punch some of the characters all at once!! Sizzle has a HAWT cover, it is a rock star romance... so I thought that it would be purrrrfect for me! However, one of the main characters almost ruined this book for me.
I loved Thalia. She is a good natured, sweet, like-able, friendly, girl next door. She comes from a family with money, but doesn't act like it. She works hard, studies hard, and has goals. She agrees to go home with a friend for the summer and pretend to be his girlfriend. Little does she know that there is a major shit storm waiting to explode when she gets there!
Jack is the typical bad boy... by looks and outer appearance. He is trying to be the golden boy in his family, going to law school, doing what his dad wants, marrying the girl his dad says to, and hiding his true self! He know his brother is coming home from college for the summer and is bringing his girlfriend, but little does he know that the girlfriend is a pretend one and he is about to fall head over heels.
Now this sounds like a basis of an amazing book... girl meets boy, they become friends, she agrees to go home with him for the summer and pretend to be his girlfriend, girl meets pretend boyfriend's brother who is engaged and falls head over heels in love... however, that is where the confusion for me started. I loved the concept of the story. I loved the hotness of Jack... tatted up rocker with nipple ring... I loved the writing... it was Jack that rubbed me the wrong way. His wishy washy, back and forth, no back-bone really wore on me. I liked him, but I just could not get over the fact he was so weak. I understood where the author was coming from on making him want to please his family and the blackmail that was going on... but he just did not do it for me as an Alpha male.
With all of that being said, I still devoured this book. It sucked me in enough that I had to finish it and see where Jack and Thalia landed. I wanted to choke them both at times and really wanted to HURT Mia, but I still could not put it down. I give Sizzle 3.8 stars on the knock my socks off scale... I think if Jack would have been more Alpha I could have definitely given this a 4 or 4.5. Still... it is a great summer read!

I was born in Bolton, Lancashire within the United Kingdom, where I lived, and worked at the University of Bolton. In 2010, I moved to Ireland with my husband, four kids and pack of animals.
We are now settled in a lovely town, in County Cavan. The kids love their schools, once they get there that is.
My eldest daughter, is on the Irish Junior Archery Team, and spends her time training. At least she does when her dad can get her off her ipad, reading or listening to music.
I have recently joined the book review blog, Book Addict Mumma and made a wonderful new friend in Kristy Louise Garbutt, my new boss!
My kindle is loaded with too many books to mention, as I absolutely love to read when I have the chance.
My all time high would be to stand at the foot of Mount Everest in the Himalayas.
