BLOG TOUR: Love is a Four Letter Word – Zara Stoneley + Review!

Released: February 27th, 2014

LOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD an erotic romance by Zara Stoneley. Published by HarperImpulse a division of Harper Collins Publisher.

Sometimes being bad can be too good to miss...

Take one rich girl who has a thing for the bad boys.

Take one tough guy who thinks possession is nine-tenths of the misery law.

Mix generously with a land dispute and a whole lotta lust…. And what have you got?

Sometimes being bad can be just too good to miss...
"Maybe all four letter words aren't nasty."

Fun and simple romance. I absolutely adored the characters, their independence, their determination and their connection. Their story is not as angsty as romances I've read before and I definitely enjoy a slower-paced story once in a while.

The novel wasn't that long so this review is going to be relatively short.

Jake is hawttttt.
This guy was trouble with a capital T. Otherwise translated as yum, with a capital Y.
With a first impression like this, how do you not swoon over this man?

And over the course of the novel, his character develops significantly. He started out as very impulsive and, of course, uncommitted. He didn't really like long-lasting plans, he liked living in the moment. But I loved how protective he is.

They first met when Georgie was getting bothered by this drunk city douche. And he defended her and scared the guy off. And even later on the in the novel, he scared off another drunk-ass asshole away. CUTE OR WHAT. God, I love me some protective males.

Then we have Georgie who's an independent character and I really liked her strength. She's been through rough patches with her mother's leaving and her father shipping her off to God-knows-where. Yet, she's this sexy, young character who isn't despondent.

Last but not least, their banter is THE BEST. They're so hilarious when they're trying to out sex-talk each other.
"No buts Georgina. Except maybe this one." A firm hand landed on her left buttock. Warm. Familiar. Pulse quickening.
WHEW! [fans self] Now that's hot. 


4 - 4.25 APPLES!!!!!
