Hi Everyone! My name is Paul and I’m a recovering sex addict...

Paul McNeill loves sex. Good sex. Bad sex. Oral sex. Any kind of sex. You name it; he loves it. But Paul's biggest passion is his greatest flaw. As a recovering sex addict, he's been abstaining and managing his addiction for over two years. Now, all he wants is to fall in love and find that certain someone he can settle down with.

But when he finds himself on his knees on Elle Jacoby’s damp lawn, he knows there's going to be trouble. Elle quickly becomes Paul's biggest challenge yet. She's instantly set him ablaze while he begs to be hosed down. As he gets to know her more, the flames burn even hotter.

How can he resist a hot divorcee who's amped up to have all the fun she's missed?

Liezel’s Thoughts:

The title of this book totally confused me. I couldn’t see how it all fit. This changed however when I got to the very last chapters. I thought it was a bust, but the author sure did  an amazing job pulling things together!

So a little more about the story…”Wet” is about two  people who are seriously attracted to each other but refuse to act upon it since they both have different expectations in a relationship. Paul who is a recovering sex addict  is looking for his forever girl while Elle on the another hand  is a divorcee who only wants to play the field. Talk about role reversal, right? That’s one of the  reasons why this book held my interest. I wanted to see how far Elle would be willing to take it.

The other reason would be the character development. Every single character was great in their own way, but it was  Paul  who stole the show in this one.  This guy in all sense was definitely a good catch! I liked how he repeatedly went above and beyond the call of duty for Elle and appreciated how committed he was to his convictions especially since Elle  did her damnest in getting him to yield.

This  did enhance the sexual tension between the couple, but the downside was it caused the pacing to be unusually slow.”Wet” didn’t focus on the romance as much as I would have hoped but it  did highlight the importance of building a strong foundation (that of friendship) before taking the relationship to the next level.

Needless to say, I enjoyed this romance even if everything wonderful occurs towards the latter part of the book. The question is, would I recommend “Wet”? Yes. As long as you are okay with a rather slow yet great build-up and have the patience to  wait until  that monumental turning point towards the very end. I sure did and I don’t regret it.

The Verdict:

    I was beginning to think I was the only one who didn’t love this book! The title didn’t make too much sense to me, either, unless it had to do with the fact he was always fixing her sprinkler???
    Paul was a different and interesting character, but they both seemed really immature to me, and that was a big part of my not loving the book.
    I did enjoy the last 40% or so of the book, much more than the first half.
