Thrust by Sybil Bartel
Publication date: December 6th 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
I know the game. I know the angle. I know how to make you beg.
My hands on your body, my mouth hovering over yours—I’ll tell you everything you want to hear. Ten inches of real estate never felt so good.
But don’t take my word for it. My client list is long and my motto is short—one single thrust and you’re mine. I’m not good at what I do, I’m fantastic. But satisfaction doesn’t come cheap. So open your wallet and prepare to forget your name. I’m about to ruin you for any other man.
One single thrust and you’re mine.
This shouldn’t work. It really shouldn’t. He is arrogant, rude and generally easy to dislike. She is fickle and alternates between strong and weak character traits. And I found it difficult to understand why she did what she did after the art show. On the face of it, therefore – I ought to have struggled with making a connection with the story as a whole.
And yet … despite what ought to be some major flaws/issues with this book, I loved it. I loved the friction between these two. I enjoyed the back and forth. Basically, the author made it work for me.
I’m glad she did. I look forward to reading more from her.
I voluntarily reviewed a reviewer copy of this book.
Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.
Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…
Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.
She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.
