Five friends. Five stories.
Welcome to The LOVER Show. Let's begin with L:
Have you ever tried not liking a guy when your best friends decide you should like him? How about if that guy had the sexiest ass on the planet, and was your birthday-cake one-night-stand with icing on top?
London Reeves agrees that three years is a long time to live without sex, but one steamy hot night could never last longer than the morning after. Yet her four lunatic best friends disagree on that last one. The voices in her head disagree, too, and even her mother seems to think she's crazy. And sexyass will not take a goddamn no for an answer. Now what exactly is a girl to do against that?
Dori Hoxa is a translator with a law degree, who works in marketing, and writes. She's also married, and since her plate wasn't full enough, she decided to get a dog recently, and named him Happy. Her biggest influence is Harry Potter, and she still expects her Hogwarts letter to arrive in the mail every day.
She writes at all times, during lunch breaks and morning coffees, and right after she gets home from work. She begins to write the moment she imagines her main character, without knowing anything about the story first; says her words like to surprise her, so she can surprise her readers.
Dori currently lives in Pristina with her husband and little Happy.
If her coffee mug is still half filled by the time she goes to bed, she knows she wrote something good. Her mug is her husband's worst nightmare ever since he found it next to his pillow one morning, staring at him while he slept. Dori still claims to have no idea how it ended up there.

4 and 1/2 stars !
I love love LOVED every minute of this book !
On her 27th birthday London goes out with her best friends Olivia, Valery, Eden and Ronnie (together their names make the 'LOVER' show). That night, she does something she's never done before, she takes a guy home for a one night stand. The sex was a mind-blowing 10 she tells her friends later.
I've said it before, I'm not a big fan of sex in novels but here it was entirely permitted (it was also only one time in the beginning of the book). There was one big loooong excruciating build-up towards the act itself and one of the best, if not the best, that I've ever read in a book. Absolutely swoon-worthy. And Liam, oh Liam, he is one hot piece of man candy ! He has the most delicious brownies (London's words), and he's got that V that I find such a turn-on, but he's not only the best God made on earth to look at, he's also attentive and considerate, he's funny and patient, he likes playing scrabble and adores brownies. You simply can't not fall for him.
London doesn't even know his name and she doesn't expect to ever see him again, but of course Murphy has something to do with it. She tries to resist the attraction though and although he keeps looking her up and they have the best time together, she does everything she can to keep him at arm's length. Their attraction was so sweet and they are so cute together. Her friends could see it, I could see it, only London doesn't want to admit it.
The writing is just so good and funny, and I was also a fan of the different little me's (angry me, horny me, happy me and smart me) that are present in London's head and pop out and made comments from time to time. If I were to borrow her internal voices, then ANGRY ME would say: I can't believe this novel only counted 174 pages, it was so much fun it should have been longer; SMART ME would say: the story was perfect the way it was but it's far from being over, there's still several other stories to read of the LOVER show, next up is Olivia and it seems she doesn't have such a light-hearted story; HAPPY ME would say: it was so good, maybe I should read it again; and finally HORNY ME would say: Liam was divine, I want to lick his brownies too!
