Title: USE ME
Author: Kimberly Knight
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: February 20
Rhys Cole’s life has always revolved around hockey. Growing up, he knew he’d play in the National Hockey League, but when his dream of being drafted didn’t happen, he chose the next best thing: becoming a hockey sportscaster for a local sports station. But just like in sports, you win some, you lose some. When Rhys discovers his girlfriend cheating with a stranger in his bed, he walks to the local bar down the street to let off some steam.
After moving her way up the journalism field by covering stories in extreme weather conditions and working late hours, Ashtyn Valor is now the lead anchor for the nightly news. Finally settled into her career, Ashtyn is ready to take the next step in life with her boyfriend. But when he unexpectedly breaks up with her, Ashtyn decides to numb the pain with alcohol at the closest bar.
Rhys and Ashtyn both expected an evening of alcohol to mask the pain of that October night. What they didn’t expect was meeting someone who could shield them from the darkness of their heartaches.
Or that their pasts would dangerously intertwine …
When obsession becomes dangerous, Ashtyn turns to Rhys for safety. But how safe are they really?
The game of love always goes on.
And their game was just beginning.
My heart stopped as I saw the man I’d met a week ago. Rhys was leaning against the bar, a pint of beer in his hand and a huge you’re-making-me-hard-by-dancing-like-that grin on his face. I smiled back and then turned back to my friends as the song switched. I could no longer focus on the words that were being sung or even the beat because my thoughts were solely on the man behind me. Was he going to come dance with me? Was he hard like I assumed he was? Did he get back together with his girlfriend? Did he come here a lot or just on Saturdays? Would sex with him be considered stranger sex?
It didn’t take long for me to get at least one of my answers.
Make that two.
Before I knew it, a hard—and I mean hard—body was pressed against my backside. All of my friend’s eyes widened, and I smiled, feeling busted. I didn’t know why. Rhys and I weren’t a thing, but it felt as though I was keeping a secret from them. Of course, the only secret was the three kisses that had meant nothing.
I loved Use Me! Ashtyn and Rhys are two heartbroken people who meet at a bar. Both being local “celebrities” on the news, they know of each other. They decide to use each other to get over their heartbreak. No strings and casual. One of my favorite things about this book was the friendship that developed between the two. They had no expectations, but the draw to each other was strong.
Overall, Use Me was a read peppered with all the feels. I was laughing at times, and anxiously keeping myself from reading ahead. I was obsessed with finding out how their story would turn out. They both had outside forces working against them. The plot was paced well and engaging, the characters were developed and easy to love. I would recommend this to the reader looking for an emotional love story.
