Book review: Spot Me (Good Friend Vol. 3)

Short erotica isn’t always an easy read. I mean, you’d think it is, wouldn’t you? It’s hot and fast and why wouldn’t you just dive in and devour it? Maybe it’s the way I’m wired, but my eyes tend to glaze over when I’m staring down even just a couple hundred words if there’s any whiff of faff or infodumping.

Thankfully, none of that applied to Spot Me, Jillian Hoff’s third Good Friend story. Each instalment features a new character’s hot, spicy and delightfully cheeky answer to the question at the core of the series: What’s the nicest thing you’ve ever done for a friend?

In Spot Me, we follow Laney, a not-so-sporty twenty-something, in her quest to do something nice for the nerdy boy she dissed back in highschool. The catch? This boy is buff af now and throbbing with the newfound confidence that comes with blossoming in adulthood.

As I’m still navigating my own hangups about sex and relationships, I love a story that can make me sizzle and giggle at the same time. Jillian Hoff has a sick tongue-in-cheek style, a great sense of humour, and makes on-point cultural in-jokes that tickle me so hard I wonder if I might actually know her in person.

I definitely recommend this book if you like the horny and hilarious mashed into a single experience.

My rating: ★★★★★ (5 out of 5)
