Book Review: "Spicy" by Lexi Buchanan

Spicy (Bad Boy Rockers, #2)

(Bad Boy Rockers #2)

Because of screwing up with Callie, during the summer, I’m drowning my sorrows with drink and women…or that’s what I’m trying to do, but it isn’t working. Every time I close my eyes all I see is Callie, her long flowing blonde locks, her slim curvy body with legs that go on for miles and breasts that make my mouth water. She’s become my weakness and I have no idea how to make amends for my past sin…

It’s been weeks since Reece left me without a backwards glance, and I’m an idiot because I’m finding it difficult to move on and forget him. It doesn’t help that my best friend, Thalia, is engaged to his best friend, Phoenix. But tonight I intend to change all that and maybe do a little flirting with another guy and see where it leads…and who knows, it might even make the pain in my ass realize what he’s missing…

3 Stars

This book starts out with a BANG! The story picks up where Sizzle left off….Callie, Donovan and Reece are very hot and oh-so-heavy in a ménage a trois.  The fact that it started out this way paced the entire story for hot and salacious sex scenes, from beginning to end. If there is ONE thing Lexi does really well, it is that she can write some steamy sex scenes that leave you flustered.

From the minute Thalia introduced me to Reece, I had wet panties and was ready to make a fool of myself. Then she introduced me to Donovan, and the look he’d shot me had me wanting to drop to my knees and beg them to take me. ~Callie

Reece and Callie had a hot and heavy, but very quick beginning that ended with her getting hurt because he ran out on her to Dal’s rescue. He left her…..for another girl? She was heartbroken. Callie didn’t know how to carry on, and her path kept crossing with Reece’s….but they had to talk it through. Reece tried to deal with his feelings and what was going on to let her move on, but he found himself really drawn to Callie and couldn’t let go of her. He found that he really liked Callie, but he also knew that he wasn’t good enough for her and felt was going to screw up any chance he had with her….he had already proven that. He wanted to see if he could get her out of his system since he couldn’t have her, but that was proving harder than he originally thought. He even tried to use a girl at a concert of his….tried.

Callie is a thorn in my side. Since I’ve been with her I haven’t been with anyone else. I’ve tried, but she’s under my skin and I need her out. I’m not good enough for her; that’s what it basically comes down to, and it’s killing me. ~Reece

This story goes back and forth with the breaking up and getting back together, loaded with super hot, super sexy love scenes….I’m telling you, they were allllllways making each other moan in pleasure. Always. They definitely found what worked for them in the bedroom and it went with them everywhere….picnics, back rooms, bathrooms…..they had ‘fun’ anywhere, and it was quite hot.  But, sadly enough, they couldn’t keep their relationship on track….it was like watching a train wreck. You couldn’t look away, but you just shook your head. They were meant for each other. They truly had something with each other; they just needed to get past the jealousy, immature and wayward thoughts that kept plaguing their relationship.

When Callie decides this last breakup is the final straw, she moves home to get Reece out of her system.  It’s been a long few weeks away from Reece and they are both suffering…..until Reece decides to chase her. Finally. However, more drama ensues and Reece gets to be her knight in shining armor.  Reece is scared of what Callie provokes in him feelings-wise, and he needs to come to terms with it. He is so worried about being seen as a softy, or “pussy-whipped”, but he can’t fight his feelings for her anymore either.

You frighten the life out of me,” he mumbles. “But you’re mine because it would kill me to see you with anyone else…I just hope like hell I don’t screw it up.” He kisses me again, still keeping his lips against the top of my head.
I have tears in my eyes listening to him. My big badass guy frightened of little me.

One thing I found neat was that another story was thrown IN this book, but it’s another series by another author. Hilary Storm’s Rebel Walking series is introduced in this book and I found it very neat that they intertwined. I also loved that Lexi’s other super-hot alpha male series, the McKenzie Brothers, was thrown in the book and weaved into the storyline as well.  I loved it!

Each book has a HEA and is about a different couple, but always includes some storyline from the story before. The best kinds of series….I do love it!! We were left with a juicy intro to the next story for Donovan and Mara, coming in 2014; Sultry. It was a very intriguing intro and it makes you want more!! Forbidden romances are very intriguing. I, for one, cannot wait to read about Donovan and Mara. <3

3 Sexy, steamy stars for this book.

About the author:
Lexi Buchanan

I was born in Bolton, Lancashire within the United Kingdom, where I lived up until 3 years ago when I moved to Ireland with my husband, 4 kids and pack of animals. I can tell you it isn't pleasant travelling in a car with 5 cats in cat boxes in the back. Getting back into the car after the ferry journey to Ireland was the most unpleasant thing we had to do on moving day!!
