    One thought on “No Strings Attached”

    1. NO STRINGS ATTACHED was first published in the LACED WITH DESIRE anthology. It automatically went on my TBR because I love Jaci Burton. As usual, the anthology was one of those on my TBR since forever and not getting any closer to the top. I’m glad that I’m getting to read these short stories now that they’re being re-released individually and I promise I’ll eventually go back and read the actual anthologies and the rest of the authors in them.“Stop. Do not look She never looked. Okay, [...]

    2. *3 1/2 Stars*I really liked this, but there were a couple of things that bugged me a little. (view spoiler)[The issue of her dead husband brought up over and over and over. I understand, but it got old. Also, his never dating the same woman twice, pointed out over and over and over again. They both held onto the 'no feelings' part of their arrangement for far too long with an abrupt ending to top that off. Without the repetition though, I would have rated this higher. (hide spoiler)] I liked the [...]

    3. Wow, this was very hot. Ella, who is a widower who is ready to get on with her life in a big way. She plans a vacation where she wants to get her freak on with a complete stranger. Clay, a friend of hers decides he wants to be the one to help accomplish her goal. Their relationship abruptly changes and the Heat is on. these two burn up the sheets constantly and it is a wild week in Hawaii. But they made that silly deal that there wasn't to be anything different between them after this week is ov [...]

    4. The sex was overall pretty epic. However the rest was really mellow and I didn't find it too emotional. I know the heroine lost her husband five years before and she was in a funk, then here comes the hero with his epic sex appeal and best of all, he knows her then all of a sudden she's in love with him. A little to fake, a little to rushed.

    5. If you think this book is full of sense of humor (jokes), sex, friends, work, and an exotic vacation — you are right! This book is for you.Ella is a afraid of losing people she loves, especially after her husband’s death, ergo her workaholic demeanor (when you don’t have time to feel, you won’t feel at all), and keeping men away from her. Yes, Fear is a powerful weapon (that will make her end up alone…)Clay is somewhat a carbon copy of Ella, but obviously a man, except for Ella is more [...]

    6. This is short, hot (very hot), and made me long for a sexy trip to Hawaii. The story jumps ahead twice, and of course I wanted more about the in between points, but that choice allowed for longer pivotal scenes. I was surprised where the story ended up, (view spoiler)[and how quickly the HEA was resolved - I really wanted a bit of conflict at the ball, (hide spoiler)] but it was a very enjoyable read. 3.5/5, so I round up for GR.

    7. I only read this because I like most of the Play by Play books. The sex was hot, but I found the main characters kind of shallow. I would've preferred a longer deeper emotional connection. But then again this is a pretty short book, so the writer had little to work with. I would repeat this book if I'm in the mood for something short and mellow. But I doubt if I'll remember what it was about in a month.

    8. When you want something short and steamy, I highly recommend this one. This was right up my alley. I rated it 5 stars because it has just the right amount of hot sex and story and a little bit of love, that's quite possible. This isn't a whirlwind romance per se because Ella and Clay knew each other for years.I love Ms Burton's stories because they could be light with a touch of drama.

    9. Cute short story. Hawaii just sounds heavenly right about now. Though it says their relationship are only as "close friends", we all know that is not true The sex was good. That was about it really. I mean it was a short story. Can't really expect much.

    10. I've nothing much to say about the book. Well not much expectations really, just wanted to do some light reading. What I expected happened, of course :). Though parang hindi naman rival, 'rival' si Clay wala lang! :)

    11. True to Ms Burton form this book is a steamy quickie. Decent development between Ella a widow of 5 years and Clay a friend and business associate. The end was obvious and predictable but the journey was quite steamy and graphic.

    12. This book was just ok for me. I didn't connect with the characters. I questioned the dumb choices she mad at the beginning and once she made sense, I didn't care anymore.

    13. Great Story by Jaci Burton. Loved the most their sensuality as well as the adventurous nature with which the scenes where described. The banter between Ella and Clay was also really good.
