In the tradition of New Adult superstar Jessica Sorensen, Ellie Cahill’s debut novel is a charming friends-with-benefits story . . . with a twist!
What if after every bad breakup, there was someone to help “cleanse your palate”—someone who wouldn’t judge you, who was great in bed, someone you were sure not to fall in love with? “Sorbet sex” could solve everything—as long as it never got too sweet.
Joss and Matt have been friends since freshman year of college, meeting one night after Joss is dumped by her boyfriend. After a few drinks, Matt humors her with a proposition: that he’ll become her go-to guy whenever she needs to heal a broken heart. In return, she’ll do the same for him. The #1 Rule: They’ll never fall in love with each other. People scoff at the arrangement. But six years later, Joss and Matt are still the best of friends . . . with benefits.
Through a string of boyfriends and girlfriends—some almost perfect, some downright wrong—Joss and Matt are always there for each other when the going gets tough. No strings. No attachments. Piece of cake. No problem. After all, since they wrote the rules, surely they can play by them. Or can they?
When Joss Met Matt is not your typical friends with benefits story. I thought the idea of Sorbet Sex was interesting, and I really wanted to see how it played out for Matt and Joss.
I really loved the Present/Past format of the story. It felt almost cinematic and added interest to the story. It drew me in from early on , I just wanted to keep reading to discover Matt and Joss's fate!
Since the story is told from Joss's perspective, you can tell in college that she starts to develop feelings for Matt, but she's just not ready to admit that maybe he is her type. It's a little harder to determine Matt's feelings, which keeps this story a page turner.
Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars. I really enjoyed When Joss Met Matt! It's a super sweet love story that handles Sorbet Sex very well. Get your copy on Amazon today!
