Five years ago, we’d been together and on fire, but the flames burned us both. Now she’s back in my life and is all my wildest fantasies in the flesh.
I want her. The desire is too powerful to argue against, but I’m not interested in what we had. This is an arrangement about pleasure and finding out who we are behind closed doors. There won’t be talk of love or any sweet nothings whispered by either of us.
This time, I’ll control the heat between us and make sure neither of our hearts get too close to the flames.
Nikki Sloane landed in graphic design after her careers as a waitress, a screenwriter, and a ballroom dance instructor fell through. For eight years she worked for a design firm in that extremely tall, black, and tiered building in Chicago that went through an unfortunate name change during her time there. Now she lives in Kentucky and manages a team of graphic artists. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America, is married with two sons, writes dirty books, and couldn’t be any happier.
Kyle and Ruby met in law school and felt a connection. They were good together, but after some misunderstandings, they go their separate ways, but not on good terms.
Five years later they are both attorneys and back in each other’s lives in a very unexpected way. But this time around there are no promises or expectations, so there can be no heartbreak. If only it were that easy.
The connection they felt when they were first together is still there. The chemistry screams off the pages. And while they are reconnecting, we see them grow close once again, even if they both agree this is nothing more than a friends with benefits type of relationship.
When Kyle and Ruby are together, their sexual connection is off the charts. But even while the sex is good, they also begin to explore the original reasons for their breakup and what they are feeling now. There are still too many hard feelings there.
I enjoyed seeing this couple reconnecting and learning to trust each other again, slowly. Though there were so many hurt feelings and resentment at the start, when it came to wanting each other there was no holding back. They explored their needs and wants and were very honest about it.
But when it came to each other’s feelings, they were so volatile. They found it hard to be honest with each other at times, outside the bedroom. Her temper and his aversion to dealing with feelings make it hard for them to move forward.
I found Three Sweet Nothings to be a bit angsty but full of sexy, steamy scenes and very romantic. This was my first book in this series and I have to say I never felt lost. They truly seem to be interconnected standalones; however, I will definitely go back and read the series.
