Book Review – Good Sensations (Welcome to Paradise #3) by S.L. Scott

GS Amazon GR SW Cover FINAL 1 (1)


Evan Ashford is sex personified. He makes me feel things I never have and crave things I’m not sure I should. Time doesn’t exist when we’re together—all of our worries becoming obsolete. Our tongues touch, and as if by memory, they move in harmony, feeling at peace, feeling at home.

Despite his mother’s best efforts to drive us apart and the miles that separate us, I’m ready—ready to claim what’s mine.

In an instant, his lips are pressed firmly against mine, consuming my words as if hearing them isn’t enough. Desire turns to need as he tastes and savors every syllable ever spoken from my heart to his.

Mallory Wray caught my attention and stole my heart. The emerald of her eyes draws me in, and it’s so easy to see why I fell in love with her. I run my hand over her cheek and into her hair, admiring everything I’ve missed so much. That familiar intensity that formed our bond back in Hawaii exists again. It’s comforting, engulfing, making my chest ache in the most painfully acute way. My heart feels grounded in her. This is right, this is us, I can finally breathe again.

Her hand settles on my cheek and a soft smile appears. “My sweet surfer. What a change a month makes.”

“It’s not the month that changed me. It’s the girl.” I turn and kiss her palm. “You make me want more than I feel I deserve.”

“You deserve everything your heart desires.”

“My heart only desires you.”

“Then I’m yours. All yours. Always.”

Life has taken these two young lovers in different directions. Can their love bring them back together? Will they be able to find their paradise once again?


4 Star Review

“Evan Ashford owned my heart and every breath I took thereafter from the second he asked, “Do you need the local time?”

This is the 3rd novel in the Welcome to Paradise series and I was in love with Evan Ashford from the very beginning and he did not disappoint in this one either.

You need to read the first two novels in this series before reading Good Sensations.   Although there wasn’t a lot of angst in this novel I still really enjoyed the ending to a beautiful love story.  I love angst in my books however, Evan and Mallory went through enough of that through the first two and this one was just a wrap up to a beautiful story.

After returning to Colorado you will get to know Mallory and Evan as they settle in their long distance relationship and if their trust issues will tear them apart.  I think S.L. Scott did a great job with the timeline and how their relationship progressed and developed. 

Mrs. Ashford never approved of Evan’s relationship with Mallory and what he was willing to give up for her.  I was thrown back with what happened between Mallory and Mrs. Ashford and a bit surprised at how their relationship turned out. 

The steam and heat between Mallory and Evan didn’t let up in this one either.  It was hot, hot, hot and those two couldn’t keep their hands, tongues, and lips off each other.  Evan showed his aggressive side but also his passionate and romantic side.  You get many sides to Evan Ashford in this series and I want to test ride all those sides.

Can Mallory and Evan make it through their separation and come out on the other side stronger?  Or will Mrs. Ashford and Evan’s old ways destroy their future together?  All in all this was a great story wrap up to Mallory and Evan’s relationship and S.L. Scott sure did give me some good sensations.
