SIDE EFFECTS
Author: Lisa Suzanne
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis 3

 

She has been hurt. She has a past of lies, cheating, and pain. She has severe panic attacks when she’s in enclosed spaces, a side effect of a horrible accident caused by a man she thought she loved. Quinn Carpenter has a distinct type: bad boys with dark hair, dark eyes, and tattoos. Tyler, her friend with benefits, fits the bill perfectly. They have fun together and they both know that fun is where their relationship begins and ends.
Quinn’s life is exactly how she wants it until she meets Reed Porter, the typical pretty boy with blue eyes, blonde hair, and zero tattoos. He is the exact opposite of everything Quinn likes.
So why can’t she get the frustrating, preppy, blue-eyed Reed out of her head?
She isn’t interested in commitment. She doesn’t want a relationship. But Reed challenges her, he puts her in her place, and he makes her nervous. The confident Quinn is never nervous around men, so what is it about Reed that has her questioning everything? And what will be the side effects of attempting to juggle two men at the same time?

Review5 Pennies

Quinn has had some pretty bad things happen in her past that have formed who she is currently.  She has problems with trusting people, isn’t looking for a relationship, doesn’t believe in love at this time, and has severe panic attacks that affect her life.  Her answer to relationships is Tyler Claiborne (Talented Twisted Tyler).  He was what she thought was her type of man; he was in a band, worked as a bartender at Strikers, had tattoos and didn’t do relationships.  Their relationship was an agreement to have sex, friends with benefits.  One Friday night a man to be known as Preppy Porter tried to make conversation with her and she very rudely shut him down.

Reed Porter was a blond, athletic, environmentalist, who also had some skeletons in his closet that caused him to shy away from relationships as well.  He had been hurt and cheated on and didn’t want to put himself out there again.  So when he met Quinn at Strikers, he didn’t know what to think except she was being a complete bitch to him.

Neither Quinn nor Reed had any idea what fate had in store for them.  This is a story of two heartbroken people, who run into each other by accident, not looking for anything, but they can’t deny there is something out there for them; they just don’t want to accept it.

This book has amazing HOT and Sensual sex scenes, a journey of self discovery for Quinn and the very important lesson in life that just because you aren’t looking for love, it might find you anyway.  Quinn at times was one of the most frustrating characters that I have dealt with, I literally found myself talking to her when she was making stupid moves or saying things that made absolutely no sense.   She was the queen of self-sabotage when it came to her life and relationships.  I definitely was rooting for Reed, it came across as that all around American guy, but he still had is Alpha male side in the bedroom.

Lisa Suzanne you have done it again.  This book was EXCELLENT.  I enjoyed every minute of it, you made me laugh, cry, yell and argue with Quinn.  I was sad to see it end, but happy to read that you are going to have another book with character from this one.  J
