Bare for You (Outback Skies, #3) by Lexxie Couper



Reviewed by Tabatha


Oh Lexxie, you did it again.

All I can tell you guys is that this book was hella good. It was so good, in fact, that I couldn’t put it down and yelled at my husband to go away until I was finished reading. I’m not even joking, but then again he’s used to this by now. lol

Bare for You was without a doubt one of the best books I’ve read in awhile. No it isn’t just because I love Lexxie’s writing, although that is entirely true, but it is because she not only gave us a sizzling hot story with a deliciously sexy Outback cowboy, but she paired him with an equally sexy politician who looks like Ryan Gosling. Yeah, I’m totally swooning over here just imagining it, and he even had glasses!

So these two do give complicated a whole new definition, but not so much so that I ever saw their relationship as being impossible. It was just going to take a lot of work and compromise on both their parts. They do have sort of an insta-lust/love thing going on, but I think they were both at a point in their lives where they were ready for more. Ryan because he is lonely, and Jeremy because he is tired of living a lie just to meet an end goal he’d set for himself while denying who he was inside. The undeniable chemistry and sexual tension in this story is true to Lex’s style, but she bumped it up a notch…or really twenty. These two get one incredible night together, but they had two days of intense build up leading into it. I loved that Ryan has a quick wit and a commanding personality you just can’t help but fall in love with. And as for Jeremy, well, I loved him in Getting Played when he first appeared and I knew he deserved someone special after that book. I’ve gotta say that Lex delivered for him in a BIG way with Ryan. From the moment these two meet, you can feel the intense heat and the connection between them coming off the pages. And believe me when I say it only gets more intense as the story goes on. Once you reach the end, I can guarantee you are going to need a cold shower. Trust me.

I think the Outback Skies series is fantastic, although it does always leaves me craving more, but this has been my favorite so far. I’m always eager to read what Lex comes up with next, but I seriously think one of these days she is going to melt or make my e-reader spontaneously combust. No joke.

*I received a review copy from the author/publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.*
