Review – Just Like That by Nicola Rendell 

Just Like That by Nicola Rendell

*praise hands* ← totally the position I’m in. Because after finishing Just Like That, bar getting down on my knees in front of Nicola and thanking her for writing this book, which can’t happen since we have an ocean separating us, the praise hands will have to do. I’m IN AWE guys. Just Like That is Nicola’s best book to date. Her best writing. Her best story. Her best characters. Everything. THE BEST. I just. GAH! This book is raw, captivating, utterly addictive and just full of feels and swoon. 

A signature sign, I’ve come to realise, when reading Nicola’s work, is how funny she is. That easy, laid back kinda funny. That funny, that’s relatable and sincere. That funny that leaves you breathless because a one liner hits at the most PERFECT time. Or that crazy situation the characters find themselves in, is so true to life it makes you howl. Literally, SO many times in this book I laughed out loud or lost it with uncontrollable giggles. Everything was just so infectious, a book that can make you smile as big as I did while reading is a total winner!!!

The real winners of this book though have to be Russ and Penny. First off. HOLY HOT DAMN. Nicola writes her scenes so, SO, well. With just the perfect amount of heat and passion, the connection between Russ and Penny was other worldly. 

Secondly, Penny! Omg, what a darling. LITERALLY. She was so cute, sassy, adorable and hilarious! 

Thirdly, last but not least, RUSS MACKLIN. OH MY GOSH! This man. Where can I find one. Honestly? Because he was freaking PER-FECT. I just, don’t have the right words to describe him. I mean, he’s really spectacular. An Intense, hot, dirty ALPHA. But also a gentlemen. And SWOON should be his middle name because it’s all I did over him. I just couldn’t get enough. 
I actually never wanted this book to end. Ever. This is romantic comedy at its finest people. Littered with just the right amount of emotion to add that extra little spark to the characters and the depth to the story. I’m amazed at how Nicola’s writing just goes from strength to strength. Amazed at it all. 

If you want a book that’s refreshing, funny, packed with crazy heat and passionate love then look no further than Just Like That by Nicola Rendell.

“I bet I can untangle you.”

At an airport baggage claim, Penny Darling looks up from her knotted mess of ear buds to find the sexiest hunk of man she’s ever seen. He’s got a military haircut, a scar through his eyebrow, and he’s rocking a pastel pink dress shirt like only a real man can. But Penny is on a man-free diet so she leaves the airport without succumbing to his delicious double-entendres…or his dreamy dimples.

PI Russ Macklin can’t take his eyes off Penny. As she sashays out of the airport with hips swaying and curls bouncing, he suspects they may share more than just sweltering chemistry. That suitcase she’s rolling along behind her? It looks a lot like his.

Because it is.

When he tracks her down, he holds her bag hostage in exchange for a date. Their night begins with margaritas and ends in urgent care, and Russ proves that Cosmo’s theory about a very particular type of orgasm was oh-so-wrong.

In Penny, Russ finds a small-town sweetheart with a very naughty side. For the first time ever, he’s thinking about picket fences. Penny finds in Russ a loving, caring man who understands the power of massaging showerheads.

But Russ is only in Port Flamingo for a week. They agree it’ll be a fling and nothing more. Because really, they can’t fall ass-over-teakettle in love just like that…

Can they?

Dual POV. No cheating. 

Featuring a big drooly dog named Guppy.
