I received this book from L. Woods PR in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Truth: A painful condition caused by a prolonged state of sexual arousal without release.
Myth: Only affects males.
I’m beyond frustrated with the man who’s left me high and very far from dry. Multiple times. But, somehow, even though I’m not interested in a relationship, Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Handsome keeps me coming back for more—one crazy, sexual debacle after the next.
Come hell or high water, the stars will align, and the release will be out of this world.
I’m captivated with the woman who’s left me sixty-nine shades of blue, and she’s only in this for one thing. The first time, I blew it—and not in the good way—but I’m going to ensure we finally see it through. I need to put an end to this “plague” of sexual calamities and prove to Sarah that we can have more.
It’s time to grab the universe by the balls and show it who’s boss.
Blue Balls is the latest RomCom by RC Boldt, and tells the story of Sarah and Jack. In case those names sound familiar in combination with the author’s name, yes you have met Sarah and Jack before. To be more precisely, in Clam Jam, where they are the best friends of the main characters. Although a bit connected to Clam Jam, Blue Balls can be read as a standalone. I love this story, it made me laugh out loud!
“The fireworks. The heat. The feeling in the pit of my stomach where just a little bit of “magic” mixes in with lust. That’s exactly what I’m feeling. We’re talking decadent, orgasm-inducing goodness. With simply one kiss from Jack Westbrook.”
Sarah is happy where she is in life. She finished school and finally has the job she has wanted for a long time. She’s excited for her friend Maggie who’s getting married and all, but love is not on her own radar. Sex yes, but no relationship or anything that even comes close to commitment.
Jack is a busy guy, but he always finds time to spend with his best friend Ry. With Ry comes fiancé Maggie, and automatically her side-kick Sarah. The four of them get along well, but Jack begins to see more in Sarah.
“These are mine now.” Her chest rises and falls with slightly staggered breathing. It makes me damn glad I’m not the only one who’s turned on. “I might give them back.” My eyes meet her heavy-lidded ones, and I can’t resist a smug grin. “Maybe.”
Since their best friends are engaged, Sarah and Jack are spending a lot of time together. There’s an insane attraction between them, but for some reason they can’t make it happen. Do they want to have wild, hot sex? Sure yes, but every time faith intervenes (which explains the title of the book, Blue Balls). It all starts out as just a wedding hook-up (well, they make an attempt), but there is so much more between them.
Blue Balls is a funny, laugh-out-loud story with some very frustrating moments. Not because Sarah and Jack do anything stupid, but I feel sorry for them (and certain body parts of them 😉 ). Literally every time the couple is about to do ‘you know what’ they have to stop for various external reasons… Poor them, it much be so annoying. I love Sarah and her inner monolog. She’s a very confident woman who knows what she wants, and goes for it. Jack is a swoony, funny guy, I love how he is with Sarah. And the epilogue? It made me feel happy.
“That’s when I realize what I’ve been missing. Jack doesn’t taste sweet and indulgent like my chocolates. He tastes like something far more decadent, far more delicious, and far more addicting. Jack tastes like love.”
I love Sarah and Jack, and their story. I give Blue Balls 4.5 stars.
