FAST FIVE: WHY MY STORY IS WORTH READING
5. You could use a laugh.
4. There’s a guy named Axel.
3. Abs and beaches.
2. Sex. Lots of sex.
1. Carter King may be my next headline.
I loved the “Fast Five” and blog posts at the start of the chapters. They added that little extra to the book that made it unique. Courtney was quite clever when she wasn’t ranting about the douche bags she’d encountered or oversharing about her sex life. I get living your life through your blog to help others, but she was just a bit over-the-top for my liking. I can see why the guys in her life didn’t like it and why everyone had to ask her to keep things “off-the-record” so to speak. She was an open book. All that being said, I believe this was intentional by the author so Courtney had an opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. And in the end, I grew to like her.
Carter on the other hand, I loved from the start! I just knew he was gonna be more than those chiseled abs that Courtney couldn’t get enough of. He was genuine, caring, sexy, and worthy of someone wonderful. Sure he came off a little cocky at the start, but how else would he approach someone like Courtney. I liked how their story unfolded and the drama that ensued, but (and I feel like I say this way too much in my reviews) I wish Courtney would have talked to Carter. Communication is key in any relationship and especially in one where you’re writing everything for the world to see.
This was my first Lisa Suzanne book, and I enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to reading more by her. I can’t wait for Emme and Axel’s story!

ABOUT HIM ABOUT ME
This guy was sort of badgering me to go out with him, and I finally accepted. I’ll be honest—he reads my blog, so I have to be careful with what I say because I know he’ll see it the second his inbox notifies him of a new post.
I met Carter when his wet dog ruined my dress—and that’s not a metaphor. He’s in town visiting from New York, and last night I learned that he’s not only persistent, he’s easy to talk to and fun to be around.
But you know what I didn’t learn?
Anything about him.
I didn’t even realize it until I got home last night after a really unexpectedly nice first date.
He got me talking. He asked me questions. He listened attentively.
But every time the subject turned from me to him, he locked up and threw it back at me. He’d give me a vague non-response and then turn it back around.
He learned a lot about me. He now knows that I break into my ex’s house to walk his dog. (It’s okay, my ex knows, too. Apparently his security cameras gave me away.) He knows that I love my job. He knows where I find inspiration for articles. He knows the little secret thing I do on Saturday mornings. (Don’t ask. I’m not telling you. I have to keep some things just for me—and now Carter, I suppose.)
He even managed to make me realize a few things about myself. For one thing, I’ve never had a really serious relationship. My last few boyfriends have been fleeting, and the one who had the most potential turned out to be less than supportive of my career. Another thing I concluded is that I really want a dog of my own. I didn’t even realize it until he pointed it out as I spoke dreamily about how much I miss Shelby.
So even though I had a nice dinner and the kind of first date that makes me want a second, I don’t feel like I know anything more about Carter than I did when the night started.
I don’t know why he’s in town.
I don’t know what he does for a living.
I don’t know why he was at the beach with a shelter dog the day we met.
I don’t know why he was kind of a douche that day.
I don’t know why he’s been so persistent in getting me to go out with him.
I don’t know anything about his family.
What I do know?
I do know that he’s really sexy and I want to see him again. I want him to kiss me.
I stared across the table, champagne sweetening my tongue as my eyes locked on his lips. For hours I stared at those lips. They’re full without being too plump. They’re soft and velvety.
Well, they look soft and velvety. I wouldn’t know if they actually are.
The night didn’t end with those velvety lips on mine. It did, however, end with the promise of a second date, a second date that will in fact occur later this evening, so stay tuned tomorrow—or later tonight, possibly, depending on how things go—for the latest.
Carter, since I know you’re reading this, this part’s for you:
Will you please just fucking kiss me tonight?
