I LOVE a good friends to lovers romance and second chance romances are my ultimate weakness!! Luckily, Marie Force’s Sex God is a little bit of both, and it is one of the best of the two genres that I have read in a long time! Sex God is one epic piece of sinful deliciousness that lit a fire inside of me and incinerated my kindle! Take the title of this book literally, because this friends to lovers romance is packing some seriously sexy, HEAVENLY heat that will torch you from the inside out!
I adored this book for so many reasons!!! Who can resist the story of two childhood friends who grow up together while secretly harboring a romantic desire for each other? Lauren and Garrett’s connection sizzles from the onset of the novel. The chemistry between them is palpable and eventually, they cross the line from platonic to romantic. After a failed attempt at taking things further they reconcile themselves to remaining friends while both of them quietly yearns for more.
These characters!!! Garrett is sexy as hell and his incredible god-like “skills” within the four walls of a bedroom had my eyes popping out of my head and my heart leaping in my chest! He rightfully earns the title of “Sex God” along with a reputation for being a man who knows how to please!!! However, what truly drew me to his character was the deeper aspects of his personality. He is intelligent, passionate, and some of his inner dialogue had me howling in laughter!!! In addition, he is dedicated to his family and his love for Lauren was blatantly obvious way before he was willing to acknowledge it himself. The heroine, Lauren survives so much emotional turmoil; she is strong, loving, vibrant and insecure after her failed marriage. I loved how Garrett reinvigorated her spirit and reignited her physical passion; she was like a flower that blossomed with tender loving care after withering without water for so long!
Another aspect of Sex God that I found irresistible was the small town magic and sense of family ties that Marie Force created in Lauren and Garrett’s hometown of Marfa, Texas. The fact that she included characters from the previous novel, Sex Machine only added to the enjoyable nature of this book! You cannot help but love the light-hearted tone of some of the interactions between Garrett and some of the secondary characters like Honey and Blake!
Sex God perfectly portrays the dynamic between two friends who yearn to become lovers but hold themselves back in an effort to preserve their friendship. I found myself hanging on by a thread, desperate for these two to finally wake the hell up and acknowledge their emotional and physical potential as a couple. And when they do…..sweet lawd almighty!!!! That one scene alone makes this book UNFORGETTABLE! You will fan yourself and you will feel the burn!
I highly recommend Sex God to anyone who enjoys watching two friends succumb to an extraordinary level of passion that can no longer be denied and the love that blooms as a result of their decision to finally give in and stop fighting the inevitable! This book hit all the right notes for me; it is entertaining, fun, flirty, seductive and had me giggling and swooning!
I tip my hat to Marie Force, and you will too! So read it!
That is this Naughty Girl’s final word.
Overall: 5/5 God-like, DIVINE stars!
