They embark on a sexy affair that’s everything Julianne ever dreamed of... except she can’t tell anyone about it. What will happen if anyone finds out about their secret relationship? And how will her lifelong best friend, Travis Miller, react when Julianne begins a relationship with someone who isn’t him? 

How He Really Feels is a novel that explores relationships and love between coworkers and friends. It contains some adult situations and is intended for mature readers

4.5 Stars

"Everything in my life was insignificant until I met you, and now you are all that matters."

Julianne Becker was in love. The only problem was, she was in love with hernew boss, Nick Matthews. She basically swooned over him for a whole year before anything finally happened. I completely understood why she never gave up though. I mean this guy was 100% swoon worthy! But you see, there's a reason it took a year for things to heat up.

When Nick first got to the company, in the contract he signed, there was a policy that forbid him from dating anyone from his department. But, unable to deny his feelings any longer, on New Year's Eve he decided to give it a go with Julianne. Quickly there after, they began what they called a 'secret relationship'. 

"You are so incredibly beautiful"

"Julianne, it's only been you since the day I met you."

Since both their jobs were at risk, no one could know - not even Julianne's girlfriends from work. The only person, aside from family, that knew about Nick was Travis - Julianne's ex-boyfriend and now best friend.  BUT, there was something Julianne did NOT know...

"... I see the way he looks at you, Julianne. It's the same way I look at you." -Nick 

This little situation caused me to feel angry with Julianne and heartbroken for Travis. The way she handled things was just beyond aggravating. About half way through the book, something happens (total WTF moment) which leads Julianne to do somethingthat completely pissed me off.  Noooo, there's no cheating or anything, but still, I think she could've handled things differently. 

Without giving anything away, I'll just say that Julianne and Nick's relationship gets tested a lot. Just when things were going smoothly, BAM, something happened. Quite the ups and downs. But don't worry, everything comes together towards the end and I have to say, I loved the ending!! I finished reading with a smile across my face. 

"How He Really Feels" is a sweet and sexy read you should definitely check out. 
There's another book coming out - "What He Really Feels" and it's Travis' journey to his HEA, which I really hope he gets.

"... I can't wait to begin forever with you."

What He Really Feels contains some adult situations and is intended for mature readers

5 Stars 

We met Travis as "Julianne's best friend" in book one, How He Really Feels. Throughout that first book, I flat out fell in love with Travis, and during this book- his book, I was simply blown away. He's one swoon worthy guy! Lisa Suzanne did an amazing job while writing a male POV. I completely connected with him.

It's not 100% necessary to read book one for you to be able to read What He Really Feels, which is the second book in the trilogy. I do however, recommend that you do so. It will allow you to have a better grasp and full understanding of "the situation" at hand, where these characters are concerned. 

"Sometimes it's just best to start over."

This book starts off in a scene we got in How He Really Feels.  That one particular scene where Julianne pissed me off. UGH! We first read it through Jules' POV and now we got the entire story with Travis' side. Let me just say, poor Travis! I felt so bad for him. *sigh* Luckily for Travis, fate was on his side.
Before moving to San Diego, he goes out with his friends to a bar where he happens to meet a mystery woman....Gorgeous.  Both of them thinking it would be just a one night stand, they decide to well... you know *wink* Just a one night thing, no strings attached, right? HA! Boy, how wrong were they!

"She's just... She's gorgeous. She's spectacular. She's everything I didn't even know I was looking for and everything I never knew I needed."

Travis, or better yet, "Tiger" as Gorgeous called him, thought he'd never see this woman again. They never exchanged real names or phone numbers, for that matter. So imagine their surprise when they bumped into each other (quite literally) in San Diego!!! Yep. SURPRISE!! Fate had stepped in, once again.

Talk about an anxiety ridden book!!! So many factors kept making things difficult for Travis and Gorgeous, also known as Lindsay, to just be happy and together!!! One of those factors being the one and only, Julianne. Which brings me to my next point. Lisa Suzanne did an incredible job in keeping me very interested in the general story line... not just in Travis' story, but in the whole thing. Like, what will happen with Nick and Julianne? Hell, I'm even curious about Spencer - whom you'll meet in this book.

I was BEYOND thrilled to see Travis FINALLY get the girl!!!  Lord knows the poor guy has suffered enough!! But still, I just know there's a lot more to these characters, so I'm VERY curious about the third book.  EEEKKKK!!!

Go buy this book!!!!!!

Oh, and that alphabet game??? SO.FREAKING.CUTE! That is all, carry on :)

"My heart was hopelessly entwined with hers, and now that she was in my life, I was certain she would be forever."
