Sex Snob by Elizabeth Hayley - Review



Sex Snob is a spin-off of Pieces of Perfect but can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Twenty-nine year old wild, carefree, and brutally sarcastic Amanda Bishop thought her three rules for dating would weed out unworthy suitors. And they did. Until she met Shane Reed, her smart-ass, sexy-as-sin CrossFit coach who pushes all her buttons. He’s the man she loves to hate. But when the hate begins to ebb away, and is replaced by feelings she can’t handle, Amanda hides behind her rules. Will the electric chemistry she feels with Shane allow her to get beyond a painful past, or will she push him away with her rules? Rules that make her the ultimate Sex Snob.

Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: July 2015.
Format: ebook & audio book

Where do I even start with Sex Snob by Elizabeth Hayley... I had the ebook sitting on my kindle, as is the way with amazon I 1click continuously when a blurb or cover grabs my attention with every intention of reading the book I've just bought when I get a spare couple of hours between arc reviews and beta reading. I was offered an audio copy for review, not realising Sex Snob was already sitting pretty on my kindle, I jumped in the car after work yesterday, pressed play and was instantly pulled into Amanda's world, this author duo grabbed me by the collar on the very first page, I was invested in their, I wanted to know more, I NEEDED to know more about not just Amanda, but Lily, Steph and Danielle, more about Kyle and Shane... I was desperate for every little scrap of information Elizabeth Hayley would bestow upon me.

Amanda is every bit of the strong, independent modern woman, she's got a good job, is financially stable, she's sassy, sexy and sexually liberated, she knows exactly what she wants and what she doesn't and she's not willing to back down on what she knows she deserves. Amanda's surrounded by best friends, roommate Lily, and bff with benefits Kyle, great work friends Danielle and Steph. Her life is good, she spends her days at work with her pompous arse of a boss, Mr Bader, and her nights being ridiculed by her arrogant, cocky and yet incredibly sexy crossfit trainer Shane. Girls nights, financial freedom, sex with no strings, life is good for Amanda.

Sex Snob is very much Amanda's vehicle for growth and development, she has her reasons for living by her life by a certain set of rules but the more time she spends with the cocky bastard who's got her body in better shape than it's been in years she might just have a reason to re-examine those rules she lives by.

I use the text to speech function on my KF while I'm driving only, it's monotone and robotic but I can deal with it as it's only used when sitting in the car to and from work.I read quickly, very quickly to be honest, and so I don't tend to buy the audio companions that often, in some cases I've found that audio books with poor narration can actually ruin a book for me, their voices invade my mind and I struggle to hear the voice I originally imagined in my head, in the case of Sex Snob the narration only made my reading experience better.
Amanda's voice was exactly what I expected, her voice held both a youthful exuberance and snarky lilt, every pause, every gasp, every moment of inner monologue, every nuance of the authors writing was caught perfectly.

My only regret is that I had Sex Snob sitting on my kindle for so long without picking it up, I've 1clicked the series that preceded this one because I need more. Sex Snob had the perfect balance of snarky wit, heart and sizzling heat, Amanda may be a little unorthodox in her approach to life and love but she captivated me from the moment she started her story, I can see this book on my reread list, it left me feeling lighter after reading it, the perfect tale for those times when you just want to smile, when your stuck dealing with a book hangover that just wont go away. This may have been my first book by these authors but it certainly won't be my last, I loved every single second of this story, and I can't wait to sink my teeth into everything else they have penned.

About the Authors:


Elizabeth Hayley is actually "Elizabeth" and "Hayley," two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands' chagrin).

"Elizabeth" lives with her husband, daughter, and nutjob of a dog. “Hayley” lives with her husband, son, and her own crazy dog. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.

Elizabeth Hayley's writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: "I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind."
