Book Review: Post Breakup Sex by Sibylla Matilde

Post Breakup Sex
Copperline #1

by Sibylla Matilde

*** Mature Content; Strong Language; Strong Sexual Content with m/f, m/f/m, and a taste of f/f/m***

She was the most beautiful girl I'd ever seen. Pure class. Old money. I never stood a chance... until she broke up with her dickhead of a boyfriend and went off the rails.

Brannon Forrester doesn't expect much from life. He coasts through aimlessly. No real ties. Nothing to hold him back. Hanging out with his best friend, lead singer of a local bar band, he lives for pleasure, out of the spotlight but with all the excess of the band's small-town fame. After all, why should he be good when the only woman he really wants will never give him the time of day?

Then, one night at an after party, Sophie Buchanan walks through the door. In an attempt to throw caution to the wind and dream out loud, she looks to him as a guide to the wild side. As someone who can show her all the excitement and recklessness, her world has been missing. He plunges her into a reality of fervent passion... and heartbreaking betrayal.

Their roles have been set. He has only ever been a good time. She has only ever been a pretty face. It would be insane for them to fall in love. But when emotion complicates lust, can the caution of the mind suppress the will of the heart?

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

I could have kissed her forever.  Little things a body required like air and food were inconsequential when compared with the rampant need building inside me.

That one little gasp, that breathy sound, stirred something in me again.  Jesus, she was like Viagra personified.

I don’t think I’ve ever said f#@ before,” Sophie giggled. “I feel kind of… naughty all of a sudden.

Her voice was the barest of whispers. “You make me feel… free.

Every thought in my brain was twisted together, and I couldn’t make sense of any of it. I could only hold her, feel her clutching me tightly, wanting to believe that all this truly meant something to her.

My Review:

The Copperline is a bar where the bands played loud, fights were common, and "the girls were always the easiest."  It was here that the lovely Sophie first encountered Brannon; although it is not the first time he had noticed her.  I was captivated by this couple and Ms. Matilde's writing.  The narrative was written from Brannon's POV and was engrossing, heart squeezing, insightful, humorous, and endearing.  Brannon is a blue-collar mechanic with tattoos, piercings and grease stains.  Sophie is a cultured, beautiful, upper class, good girl who is expected to be a Stepford wife and marry as a business asset for her father.  Under her parents' tight control and given her desire to please, she has never broken a rule or stepped out of line.  By contrast, Brannon has enjoyed an easy-going lifestyle of a self-professed man-ho and friend to the popular bar band called The Bangin' Mofos, who never brings girls to the bar but leaves with a different one each night, and seldom speaks without the use of expletives.  They could not have been more different or a better match for each other. 

At the age of twenty-three Sophie has become restless and tired of her parents' constraints and wants to try new experiences which Brannon aptly labeled as her "Dirty Bucket List" and vowed to help with the various activities.  What a sacrifice!  The storyline was frequently erotic and deliciously sensual, requiring the constant use of my ceiling fan and a steady flow of cool drinks to avoid dehydration.  I am more than eager to dive into the rest of the series.
