It was supposed to be fun.
A mutual use of each other’s bodies.
To be a ruse to the world around us.
I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.
One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment.
He warned me not to fall for him, and I should’ve listened.
He intoxicated me.
He made me crave him.
He ruined me.
In the end, I’ll never be the same.
I was drunk on this book! I loved it! Harper Sloan really sucked me in on this one.
I loved Nikki and Shane. They had great chemistry and both very likable. What I wasn’t a fan of was the insta-trust that happened in the book. There’s a BDSM aspect in this book and I felt that even though they knew each other for years that sort of trust doesn’t just happen. It wasn’t believable to me and kinda brought me out of the book for a bit.
That being said, I did love them as a couple. Both Nikki and Shane are looking to move on from their exes but not looking for a relationship – just something fun with no strings attached. However, what they both feel for each other is just too strong.
The angst in this book is low and the laugh out loud moments we usually get from Harper Sloan (think Corps Security novels) just isn’t there. Although there’s one scene I particularly liked that involved Shane’s business partner and friend, Nate and Nikki that I particularly loved.
Is the book worth the read? Totally! These small things don’t take away from the overall book. I’d totally recommend Drunk on You to others. If you’ve loved the previous books in this series and Corps Security you’ll enjoy this one too.
