BOOK REVIEW...Sizzle (Bad Boy Rockers #1) by Lexi Buchanan

Thalia is twenty-one and has just finished her sophomore year of college, and is trying to avoid going home to her stifling parents who have a curfew of nine every night, and have a bad habit of treating her like she's still ten years old. Her new boyfriend, Liam, invites her to spend the summer with him and his family, so as she’s been unable to find a local job to keep her at college, Thalia jumps at the chance. Liam tells her that she can be his guest at his brother, Jack’s, wedding at the end of the summer.

Jack is twenty-five and feels as though he’s drowning. He’s engaged to Mia, against his will, because it’s always been drilled into him, family comes first. Jack’s studying for a law degree, and wants to go out on his own once he graduates, specializing in criminal law. His father wants him to accept a junior partnership in the law firm owned jointly by him and Lewis, his fiancées father, to practice family law.

Then he meets his brother’s girlfriend, Thalia, and he can’t get her out of his head. He needs her to keep her distance, because every time she smiles in his direction, he wants to carry her to his room and do really naughty things to her.

Then Saturday night arrives and Liam takes Thalia to a new bar that has opened on the outskirts of town, where she discovers Jack’s big secret. By day he’s the good looking, slightly older brother with a chip on his shoulder, who gives her hot looks, and by night he’s Phoenix, singer/guitar player for bad boy group ‘Deception’, who makes her sizzle to the core!

He has muscle.
He has tattoos.
He has piercings.
He has a mouth that makes her panties wet every time he opens it. He is supposed to be getting married.
He is also her boyfriend’s brother....

Read Thalia’s story in Sizzle, book one of Summer Bad Boy Rockers Series. Coming July 2013.

Holy sh*t!  Look at that DELICIOUS cover!  So yummy!

"Sizzle" was an okay yet enjoyable read where I devoured it in one sitting.  I really liked how evenly paced it was and how easy it was to digest.

The main thing, if anything, that bothered me was the characters.  Gah!!  If there's two things I often hate reading in books it's when there's characters like these:

1) Meddlesome parents who force their own agenda on their children.
 2) A love at first sight connection (since it's so cliche!) between the main guy and girl.
 And when the characters finally get together they act like love sick puppies!  How nauseating!

As for the plot and the story line's pretty simple and self-explanatory if you've read the synopsis.  There isn't much to really expand from there.

Over all, a delicious read but don't expect too much from it.  And is it kind of bad when you feel as if the hottest smutt scene didn't even involve the main characters?  I'm talking about in the beginning when Jack/Phoenix's friend are doing a threesome with a girl in the beginning and she ends up spreading this strawberry flavoring on her down there area and Jack's friend ends up *treating* her with  his mouth.  How hot!!

I know I sound wrong for making that comment and that it makes me a pervert but I can't help myself!! It just caught my attention and stayed there! Lol.

Anyways guys, I'm sure most of you will love "Sizzle" so go ahead and read it.  I can't wait for "Spice" now but too bad it doesn't come out till January 2014!  :(

My Rating:

-Overall : 8
-Plot : 8
-Writing : 8
-Characters : 8
-Cover : 10
