Book Review: Doing it for Love by Cassie Mae

Book Description

Elizabeth Fanning's life looks pretty perfect, judging by the diamond ring on her finger. Her fiancé, Landon, is sweet, handsome, and hilarious. The trouble is, before they've even tied the knot, their sex life has gone from mind-blowing to “meh”—and Liz isn't ready to be part of an old married couple. After a cathartic call to her best friend, Liz comes up with a brilliant idea. She and Landon may never be able to re-create the magic of their first time, but how amazing would their wedding night be if everything below the neck was off-limits until then? 

Liz thinks it'll bring them closer together. Landon's convinced she'll cave first. So they raise the stakes: Whoever lasts longer gets to pick their honeymoon destination. With her heart set on the Bahamas and Landon fighting for snowbound Utah, Liz simply has to win. But pretty soon, her body is screaming for attention, and Landon's never seemed so far away. Has Liz's experiment backfired? Losing their little competition would be frustrating—but the one thing she can't afford to lose is him.

**I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**

This is a book about what happens AFTER you found your "happily-ever-after".  

Liz and Landon have been together for four years when they get engaged.  And after some mediocre sex after Landon ask her to marry him, Liz comes up with a plan: No sex until they are married, hoping that would bring a sense of anticipation and spark back to their relationship.  She wants that "newness" feeling back with dates, flirting, and just some old fashion make-out sessions.

I was the same age as Liz when I married my husband (22 years old).  I completely related to the fears and concerns about being a young married couple.

I loved this story.
