Book Title: Pressure Point
Author: Olivia Luck
Genre: New Adult
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions
I know what you’re thinking. It’s unconventional to want a man nine years older than you. It’s inconvenient to crush on your dearest friend’s older brother. It’s silly to pine after a man for six years. It’s cliché to lust after a celebrity. It’s pathetic to fall in love with a man who barely knows you exist.
I know what you’re thinking because I’ve thought it all, too. And yet that hasn’t stopped me from wanting Blake Campbell. Charming, gorgeous, brilliant, kind, selfless – Blake is everything I’ve ever wanted, but he doesn’t see me that way. In fact, he hardly noticed me until one night.
Traumatic events brought us together for the first time, but then he tossed me aside. I know it’s irrational, but I wanted him up until the moment he left me lying there alone.
When his eyes finally open and he finds out I’ve left, will it be too late?
Pressure Point by Olivia Luck
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When Stella meets her best friend in college, she quickly falls in lust with her brother who is nine years older. Out of respect for her best friend, she never gives any indication that Blake is the man she wants, but she also never forgets him. Year later, during a traumatic time for both Stella and Blake, they have an interaction that doesn't go well. Some time later, Stella is working her way up in a successful company and one of Blake's companies becomes her client. Blake decides it it time to show Stella that she is the woman he wants and he will do whatever he needs to do to make her his.
Stella is a really easy character to care about. She is a great sister, cousin, and friend. She makes sure to take care of those around her, and often puts the needs of others before her own. That said, she also has backbone and will stand up for herself when she needs to. Seeing not only the terrible situation that Zoe experienced, but also seeing how it affected Stella was really emotional. One of my greatest hopes as I read this book was that Stella and Zoe would be able to find their friendship once again. Blake was a tricky character. He did some really wonderful things, and some hurtful things. The wonderful things definitely win out, but he definitely caused some big emotional swings with Stella (and the reader). This was the first book in this series that I read, and I will definitely be going back to read the first book. I like this author a lot and will continue to read her work in the future.

They say life is about choices. You spend your life making decisions and dealing with the consequences, whether they are positive or negative. In my tumultuous frame of mind, I make a choice. A very poorly thought out choice, but one that I have to live with, nevertheless.
As soon as Cassidy finishes her encore, I tell the girls that we’re going backstage to meet the singer. They follow behind the private elevator to the lower level of the Chi Center, talking giddily. I push their voices out of my mind, leading them with long, purposeful strides.
There are perks to owning the joint. The security guards clear the way for me, knowing not to bother me when I’m in a foul mood.
With a short knock, I push my way into Cassidy’s crowded backstage room. The moment she lays her fake-eyelash covered gaze on me, she squeals. The sound hurts my ears, but I pretend it doesn’t.
“Blake Campbell, I didn’t know you were coming back here!” She literally launches herself at me, latching her over tanned arms around my neck and thrusting her glitter-speckled tits against my chest.
And then, in plain sight of Stella, I yank the pop star into my arms and thrust my tongue down her throat.
You are a moron.
