About this ebook

That irresistible, tattooed hottie who’s been flirting hard with me since he rode into town? The one who kissed me senseless in the back of a waffle truck the other day? Yeah, turns out he’s my new housemate…

Things I don’t need while up for a promotion to police sergeant—a roomie who makes me think criminal thoughts.

Can I arrest him for being too good-looking?

But I soon learn Derek is is strong, caring, generous, good with kids, and kind to puppies… and might be able to help me with my promotion, which gives me an idea...


A no-strings-attached fling with the fiery redhead who revs my engine? Why, yes, that does sound like a delicious perk of my new job in this new town.

Except, it turns out Perri’s my sexy, sassy landlord.

When she comes to me with a out-of-left-field proposition, resisting her is going to take more than handcuffs

3.5 - 4 stars The Feel Good Factor was super cute, fast paced and hot. The characters, side and main, really drove this story. We met both Perri and Derek (briefly) in Best Laid Plans. I couldn't wait to get their story. I love, love, love, that Lauren Blakely always makes her heroines strong, independent women. Perri is a well respected cop. She's thriving in a male dominated field. I enjoyed her spirit, her heart and her personality. I absolutely LOVED her friendship with her friends. Derek is swoon city. Dirty talking sweethearts like Derek make me weak in the knees. He came to Lucky Falls to help his sister and her kids while her husband was overseas. I mean come on hottie alert. Add in his fan yourself dirty mouth, his job as an EMT, and a motorcycle, it's obvious I never stood a chance. Unfortunately, I will admit that while I did enjoy the characters, the banter and sexiness of this book, It didn't completely wow me like some of Lauren Blakely's other books. Something was lacking for me. I'm not usually turned off by instalove but Perri and Derek's relationship may have been too instalove-ish. Feel Good Factor is still worth a pick up. Lauren Blakely is a pro at the fun, flirty sexy books. That's why she's one of automatic one-click authors.

The Feel Good Factor was a cute friends with benefits/roommates to lovers romcom. It had all the things I love about Lauren Blakely's books - a sexy and swoony hero, a strong and intelligent heroine, fantastic secondary characters, and a story that just makes my heart happy. I really loved the banter and push and pull between Perri and Derek. They have instalust right away, but the real chemistry occurred when they got to know each other beyond the physical. Derek was such a teddy bear with his nieces and nephew. I loved seeing that softer and gentler side to him. I did not blame Perri one bit for her ovaries exploding at the sight of Derek in full "dad mode". LOL One of my favorite parts of the story was the friendship between Perri, Arden, and Vanessa. I loved how supportive, understanding, and loyal they were to each other. It's clear that these ladies would do anything and everything for their friends and I appreciated that Lauren Blakely took time to highlight this special relationship. It also helped to set up the next book/novella featuring Perri's brother, Shaw, and her BFF, Vanessa. I did find the story fairly predictable, but the conflict Perri and Derek faced at the end felt true to their characters and their experiences. Plus, it set the stage for an epic romcom style finale. The epilogues will have you grinning ear to ear and Lauren Blakely fans are sure to enjoy this newest addition! *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** Lauren Blakely has done it again by giving us a great story with plenty of feeling and humor! Perri is a police officer in the small town where she lives. She's working hard to get the promotion she wants and outside of her work, all she really has time for is her friends. She doesn't have time to date and she also doesn't want it to mess with her focus! When Derek comes to town to help his sister with her three kids while her husband is deployed, he meets Perri nearly as soon as he hits the city limits and the chemistry between them is instantaneous! The EMT needs a place to stay and ironically, it ends up being the room over Perri's garage that he is going to rent. When Perri asks Derek to help her with a kissing contest she's going to enter, the two end up "practicing" and as you can imagine, the chemistry between them continues to grow. While both of them don't want to be in a relationship, are they going to be able to curb the growing feelings they have for one another? I loved Derek and how amazing he was with his nieces and nephew. He was a wonderful uncle and his selflessness to help his sister was a sexy trait. I also loved that Perri was a strong woman working to succeed in a male driven occupation. The two were a great mix as they were both strong, but balanced one another out and the chalkboard was an amazing part of this story that I loved as well. Another winner by Lauren Blakely!
