Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Sex and Other Shiny Objects is Lauren Blakely’s newest standalone in the Boyfriend Material series. Lauren is one of my favorite authors and I’m loving the characters in this series. They are smart, sassy, sexy and swoony! If you read Asking for a Friend you’ve met Tristan and Peyton. Best friends who shared a smoking hot kiss ten years ago, but the timing was never right to move past just friends. Now they are both single and when Peyton needs help with a special project, Tristan volunteers. He knows it’s a bad idea, getting closer to her, but he can’t help himself. She needs help testing out scenarios that happen in a romance novel. Do buttons really fly off when you rip off a shirt? Is sex on a staircase possible? How easy is it to shred panties? All answers I wanted to know myself! Tristan is one of Lauren’s swooniest heroes! He’s just so sweet and sexy and I love the way he loves his brother (who I also loved!) and his friends. This story was a second chance, best friends to lovers romance and it was just what I needed just when I needed it! I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and smiled a lot! Not only was Tristan’s relationship with Peyton fantastic, I absolutely loved Tristan and his brother, Barrett. They had some of the greatest scenes and it made me want to call my siblings just to say hi!

 

She looks at my face, her breath stuttering like she’s trying to collect herself. Then her eyes roam down. “You. Work. Out.” Every macho instinct in me tells me to preen, to show off muscles that sweat and time at the gym have carved. But I resist those urges. “Every now and then.”

“Shut up. These are religious abs. These require daily practice.”

I laugh at her assessment. “Yes, my abs are quite devoted.”

5 out of 5 stars

Sex and Other Shiny Objects is the second book in the Boyfriend Material series and Lauren’s next romantic comedy. You can read it as a standalone but I highly recommend reading Asking for a Friend. It’s so good!! And it’s where I first met Peyton as Amy’s bestie, and Tristan as the delicious restaurant owner and friend to both ladies. It was definitely a tease to what was up next for these two!
Tristan and Peyton have been the best of friends since they met freshman year in college. And in all the years they have only been friends they have only crossed the line once. It happened ten years ago with one passionate kiss that neither of them would ever forget but never acknowledge. It wasn’t the time then and it wasn’t the time now. Tristan is Peyton’s best guy friend and the only man besides her father who she could trust. And Peyton is too important to Tristan to go there. They both have their reasons and they are good ones but…
Peyton volunteers as tribute for a project that her friend Amy needs help with. One that would benefit them both in business. It would help Amy with research for a book and Peyton with her lingerie boutique and blog. To practice tropes in romance books! She just needed a willing partner and why not her best guy friend? It’s only five little tests. It’s not like they would actually be naked. It’s not like it would turn into more, right? They could resist temptation. Their friends might say there is something between them but no, neither of them have said a word about it. They could do this, right?
Come on!! They can do the research but you know they can’t keep their hands off each other! Red lace, chocolate, popcorn, and sexual tension is a recipe for so naughty nights. Ladies! Get on the lingerie that makes you feel sexy and read this book!! Then take a nice bath. Then maybe pounce on your partner, if you don’t have one, pounce on yourself!
Damn…Lauren’s books always make me happy! They make me smile, swoon, and get all hot and bothered. They are always so much fun with a twist of naughty and full of love. I can’t wait for Lola’s story, I do love a good second chance romance.
P.S. I always get giddy when I see my name in a book ♥️
Quotes:
“I need to do something that stands out. Like what you do with your videos.”
He gives me a wry leer. “You could post fifteen seconds of you trying on lingerie.”
I grab my napkin, ball it up, and toss it at him. “Smart-ass.”
“Do you have any idea how gorgeous you look? How beautiful you are? You’re so fucking stunning in every way, but especially like this.”
Peyton: Also, it turns out that not only does the hero in this book like to shred panties . . . he likes to shred them with his teeth.
I trip.
My phone flies out of my hand and skids across the concrete landing as I fall on the staircase, tumbling over my own feet.

“This book was the perfect way to start my 2020. Sex and Other Shiny Objects left me with a grin on my face and my heart is still sighing when I think of it.”

~ Melissa, Goodreads

“These stories from the Boyfriend Material series just keep getting better and better. Just when you think Lauren can’t write a better story, she goes and does it.”

– Joanne on Goodreads

“I absolutely loved this storyline and often wondered if popping buttons and bathtub hijinks were really feasible. The way that Ms. Blakely presents it is fresh, funny and uncomfortably real!”

~Bibliophile Chloe

Blurb:
The second the test-the-sexy-scenes offer landed in my lap, I said yes.

After all, I’ve been damn curious about a few things I’ve read in romance novels. Do buttons truly go flying across the floor when you rip off a guy’s shirt? Is staircase sex hella hot or does it leave you with a big old bruise mark on your back? And don’t even get me started on all that panty shredding, and whether it even works.

Time to find out as I embark on Project Sexy Scenes Research, at the request of my hotshot book editor bestie.

All I need is a willing scene partner. Enter Tristan, my best guy friend. The witty, tell-it-like-it-is, bearded hottie volunteers for the experiment.

He’s also the guy who gave me the most devastating, toe-curling kiss of my life ten years ago. But nothing has happened since then.
And nothing will come between my panties and our friendship now since we have a plan to keep it PG.
But once the buttons start flying, all bets are off…
