Sweat Equity is the second book in The Realtors trilogy and it continues the story of Jack Gordon and Sara Thornton. Their incredibly complex, on-again, off-again relationship took an interesting turn at the end of the last book, and book number two deals with the fallout.
A series of factors lead the pair on a merry dance, and soon circumstance, temptation and distraction cause their relationship to crumble. But while their relationship status has changed, their mutual need for one another hasn’t. Can they finally overcome all the barriers keeping them apart, or will their volatile relationship eventually come to a permanent end?
It’s very hard to write this review without giving any spoilers, so I’ll be brief. I enjoyed this book. The characters, however frustrating they may be, are realistic and have dramas just like everyone else. There’s conflict galore, with lots of break up and make up sex, and even more sex besides – and it’s always hot!
I wasn’t sure where the story was going as I got into this book, but by the time the ending arrived I’d guessed what was going to happen. Despite this, I’m interested to see where this new development takes the story, so bring on book three!
