Something like Lust (Chicago Grizzlies, #2) by Piper Rayne ~ Book Review


Something like Lust by Piper Rayne is now live!

Do it.
Don’t do it.

Never in my life did I think I’d wager in my head whether to sleep with Chicago Grizzlies wide receiver, Damon Siska.

He’s the perfect package—hot body, killer smile, and flirts like he earned a doctorate in it. But anyone who reads gossip blogs knows he is looking for one amazing night and nothing more.

I’m not the usual type of woman he beds. I’m a middle school teacher who cherishes her quiet nights in, drinking wine, and watching romantic comedies, dreaming I’m the heroine. I’m not embarrassed to admit—I want the fairy tale.

But Damon caught me at a weak moment. Fresh off a break-up and feeling lousy about myself, I gave into temptation and left the next morning like every other woman he’d slept with.

Except I walked away with more than just the memories when three weeks later the little white stick glowed with two pink lines.

Oh, how the playboy has changed his spots.

If you have read ON THE DEFENSE, which I highly suggest you do BTW, it's currently FREE, you have met Damon Siska, the wide receiver for the Chicago Grizzlies, and Adeline, a middle school teacher whom Damon has an ONS with, in that book. Fast forward six months, and here we are.

Damon receives a text saying he's going to be a daddy. Well, what's a guy to do? He can only head to the school where she works and confront her since she isn't responding to him via the phone. I have to say I LOVE the school secretary who plays Mama Bear to Adeline.

Damon and Adeline have great chemistry, which they try to fight to co-parent their baby. Let's just say they have good intentions, but they eventually give in and light the sheets on fire. There is some angst in their story with his family, her friends, and his past, which is why he refuses to commit to a relationship. I liked the family drama, even the drama with her friends and co-workers, but I wasn't thrilled with his backstory it just didn't grab me and make me say Yep, I totally get it.

This is a SLOW BURN, second chance, reform playboy, surprise baby, forced proximity, ONS to more, Small Town Romance, so if you enjoy any of these tropes, I recommend this book to you.

Happy Reading!!!
