My Review

Sexcation by Author Heidi McLaughlin is a strangers-to-lovers, holiday romance.

“Jackson embodies everything I would look for in a man, if I were looking, and if he were real. It’s easy to be everything someone desires when you’re pretending.”

Jade needs a break.  She needs to get out of her head and just enjoy life.  The perfect place for this, Bermuda.  The perfect man, Jackson.  He was unexpected, a complete surprise, and the best part, he was British!

“Ideally, it’d be clever of us to treat this as a one-night stand, but we both know it’s much more than that. At least it is now. It didn’t start off that way. I thought I was being a smooth operator when I kissed her. Little did I know what I was in for.”

The beginning of this novel was exactly what I expected from reading the title.  A beautiful landscape, man meets woman, they have a mutual attraction and, bada bing bada boom, they experience a connection. However, this story took subtle turns, exposing much more than I imagined. Jade and Jackson’s story gave me flutters in my heart

“I had a feeling sex with her would be different, but I had no idea it would feel like I was having a heart attack.”

For a story that wasn’t real and was about sex during a vacation, I had one emotion that did not seem to flow with this carefree theme.  I cried.  Why?  Because I became so attached to these two souls. I couldn’t bare to see Jade and Jackson step out of each other’s lives after the passion and chemistry they had. They needed a future.  I needed for them to be more. I needed more of their intimate moments. More of their heavy, frequent pecking, and laughter.  And more is exactly what I got!

Sexcation was an imaginative, heartfelt, and sexy story of chance meeting between two characters who took full advantage of kismet.
