Title: Separation Anxiety
Author: Lisa Suzanne
Release Date: February 3, 2014
Hosted by: Between the Sheets Promotions
We all get one true love in our lives, and it’s up to us to find it. Fate will act and try to push us together, but ultimately it’s up to us to recognize who that one person is when he’s standing in front of us.
It turns out that I recognized who my one person was when I was separated from my husband.
On the same day I determined that I was finally going to file for divorce, I confessed my secret to Jesse Drake, my swoon-worthy colleague known for his womanizing ways. Jesse invited me to crash with him, and with each new piece of the enigmatic Jesse puzzle that I started to fit into place, I found myself wondering if Fate had pushed us together for a reason.
If only my husband would stop getting in the way of the man with whom I was meant to be.

Received in exchange for an honest review.
I can’t say how much of a PRIVILEGE it is to be able to read Lisa Suzanne’s books. There’s just some sort of beauty to the SIMPLICITY of her writing. I feel that books nowadays are complicated or have complicated plot lines to engage the reader. You don’t want to read something and go, “Oh yeah, I’ve read something like this before.” With every new book she writes, she seems to OUTDO herself every time. I don’t know how she does it!
After a year of marriage Veronica has had enough. The moment she said her I Do’s she felt her once happy relationship start to go downhill. The first person she ends up telling about her unhappy state, is her co-worker and fellow faculty member, Jesse Drake – the school councilor. Being a good friend, he puts her up in his home for a few days while she sorts herself out, but in those few days their relationship goes from being just friends…to so much more. Veronica has always had a crush on Jesse, but how does he feel about her? Will she believe his feelings are true, knowing his expertise on getting women into bed? And what secrets does Jesse Drake have that he’s keeping from her?
You know how people say they always wish books were longer? Well, I think I say that a lot; and I don’t mean I want it longer for the sake of being longer. There writing is just so engaging and flows so amazingly that you dread each page turn and Lisa Suzanne’s books definitely does that for me. I dread and cling onto every page, every word, every sentence, hoping the next one won’t be the last.
So first there was Nick in How He Really Feels and I thought he was hot. Then there was Travis in the same book and in What He Really Feels. Now there’s Jesse Drake (because I like saying his full name) and my mind is just blown. I don’t know how she manages to outdo herself with these book boyfriends in every book. I don’t know how long she’s going to be able to keep one-upping herself, but I have the UTMOST confidence the book boyfriends she makes in the future will be fantastic.
“You’re amazing. You’re smart. And it you’re so goddamn beautiful that sometimes it hurts to look at you and know that I can’t have you.”
Seriously though. Where are these men hiding and why can’t I have one!? It just isn’t fair :P!
Jesse is like…the personification of the word perfect. I’ve looked it up in the dictionary. His name is there *wink*.
He cooks, he cleans, builds his own furniture, has a good job, good with kids, listens well and gives good advice, and has a CRAZY SEXY BODY with tats…like…what? like…omg? like…SWOON CAN I PLEASE LICK YOU! I am not ashamed to be fangirling over him, I’m really not! Seriously, who wouldn’t want that?! Lisa Suzanne’s boys just make a woman…feel loved, feel special, and I can’t stress how important that is for ALL women to know the joy of what that feels like…
“It wasn’t dependence in the way that I became a fragile woman who relied on a man to support her, rather, it was dependence in the way that I needed Jesse and his love. I needed his warm arms around me. I needed his support and his strength and his laughter. I needed him to look at me with lust in his eyes and promise me that I was the only woman he wanted. These were the things that I had come to rely on in my life, and I was thriving in new ways that I didn’t know I could thrive. I felt confident, loved, cherished, and treasured, and I realized how much I’d been missing out on because I’d never had any of that with Richard.”
If you want to try out a one-shot as one of your first reads of 2014 I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Separation Anxiety. It’s just a simple, easy, and wonderfully beautiful love story that’ll make you just as head-over heels as I am for Jesse Drake and Lisa Suzanne.
