Review: JUST LIKE THAT by Nicola Rendell

just like that

OMFG RUSS!!!!!! <3

Penny Darling has given up men. Temporarily, yes but still it’s tough. She is as determined as one could be but her will is wavering in the face of sexy and dimpled Russ Macklin. He looks sweet as sin and the fact that his dirty talk makes her weak in the knees isn’t really helpful.

Russ wanted to untangle Penny the minute he saw her. Every small moment he spends with her makes his want for her stronger. He knows he can’t stay and the secret he’s hiding isn’t all that pretty. This doesn’t stop him from thinking about a forever with Penny and for the first time in his life, Russ might be ready to risk it all for her.

Their explosive chemistry forces them to give this fling a go because surely no one falls in love JUST LIKE THAT.


I devoured this book because that is the only thing you can do when reading Nicola’s books. I am in awe of her story telling and just basically I have a huge never ending crush on her.

Penny is probably one of my favourite character ever. She is so fun, hilarious, smart and just the best person. I want to be friends with her.

RUSS MY MAN!!!!!!!!!! I am a sucker for sweet filthy men and Russ takes the cake on that front. His dirty talking and sexy dimples made me swoon so hard.

This is a very swwet, very sexy and absolutely feel good romance. You won’t be able to resist Russ’s charm. Also, Guppy the adorable massive dog stole the show. He’s the real star, y’all!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

5 Stars!

“I bet I can untangle you.”

At an airport baggage claim, Penny Darling looks up from her knotted mess of ear buds to find the sexiest hunk of man she’s ever seen. He’s got a military haircut, a scar through his eyebrow, and he’s rocking a pastel pink dress shirt like only a real man can. But Penny is on a man-free diet so she leaves the airport without succumbing to his delicious double-entendres…or his dreamy dimples.

PI Russ Macklin can’t take his eyes off Penny. As she sashays out of the airport with hips swaying and curls bouncing, he suspects they may share more than just sweltering chemistry. That suitcase she’s rolling along behind her? It looks a lot like his.

Because it is.

When he tracks her down, he holds her bag hostage in exchange for a date. Their night begins with margaritas and ends in urgent care, and Russ proves that Cosmo’s theory about a very particular type of orgasm was oh-so-wrong.

In Penny, Russ finds a small-town sweetheart with a very naughty side. For the first time ever, he’s thinking about picket fences. Penny finds in Russ a loving, caring man who understands the power of massaging showerheads.

But Russ is only in Port Flamingo for a week. They agree it’ll be a fling and nothing more. Because really, they can’t fall ass-over-teakettle in love just like that…

Can they?
