Nicole Langley’s #1 Crush has always been Gabriel Roberts, but settling for being a friendly acquaintance has had to be enough. Gabriel has always seen Nicole as his good friend’s very pretty, but extremely off limits baby sister. Then a hot summer day and an even hotter discovery pushes them over the lines of friendship, over the lines of unrequited desire, and into each other's arms. Will they indulge and move on? Or will this crush turn into something more, something deeper? Something that leaves loose ends begging to be tied…

My Review

3.5 Too Much Sex Not Enough Other Stuff Stars

#1 Crush is book #1 in the Loose Ends Series, this is the first book I have read by this author and I was lucky enough to have been gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I had quite a fixed opinion of this book, and I knew what this review was going to say right up till the point a few minutes ago when I realised that this is book #1 in a 3 book series.
This book is a bit of a funny onion, it is literally jam packed with sex, like there’s so much sex it got to be a bit daft!!!!

I kind of liked both Nicole and Gabriel but to be truthful apart from the fact that she has a longstanding crush on him and that he’s a commitmentphobe. The only thing we learn about them is that they like a lot of quite rough sex!!!

When I finished the book I thought it was a standalone and I was a bit disappointed that there was no real resolution to the story. Now that I know there will be more books it feels more like a cliffhanger and I’m good with that.

There is definitely a sexual connection between this couple and sexually they seriously float one another’s boats!!! This book boasts lots of sex in lots of positions and a fair bit of dirty talking.

Personally I missed some kind of emotional connection and the dialogue that builds the romance.

I’m not really sure if this is the start of a romance from Gabriel and Nicole or simply a fling!!!
This book has left me a bit confused.

Its sex, sex and more sex and that’s great but for me there needs to be something deeper.
#1 Crush gets 3.5 stars from me.
