Falling in love is like swimming with sharks...
Sharona Blaire is only in Australia for a business audit, but she’s determined to make the most of her one free night. So when she spills her drink on a handsome stranger and they end up flirting, she does something completely out of character—she kisses him. But the prospect of taking it further totally freaks her out...almost as much as discovering the next morning that the man she’s auditing is the sexy, tanned stranger she left with zero explanation.
An audit during his crew’s most important expedition yet is a complication marine biologist Jeff Cruz doesn't need—especially when the auditor is the gorgeous, fascinating woman from the night before. Out at sea with nowhere to run, he’s forced to admit Sharona draws him in like a shark to blood. But Jeff's one passion is his job, and nothing—not even love—will get its hooks in him...
"Just the right amount of fluff with plenty of swoon, Love Bites is a promising start to the new Sugar City series, and I can't wait for more. You'll like this one!"- Pretty Sassy Cool
Love Bites is a short, sweet cute read that leaves you with a good case of the warm and fuzzies. Jeff and Sharona (yes, in my head I was singing the song) were completely endearing loveable characters and Ophelia London brought this novella to life with her descriptions, detail and the fun and se... ...more
You already know I ♥ Ophelia London, so I was crazy excited when I saw this new series from her, and ya'll--it's so sweet and cute. I loved these characters! I don't think I've read a book with a marine biologist before but dang! Jeff was the perfect mix of sexy and nerdy and gah! Sha... ...more
Super fun and fluffy, exactly what I was looking for.
Loved the dual POV. Sharona and Jeff are both stubborn and snarky and I really liked seeing each character through the other's eyes. There was a lot of UST, which is my favorite, and some hot kisses.
All in all, a quick read that definitely ha... ...more

Thank you to Ophelia London for writting such a lovely book... ...more
This was a wonderful novella.
I liked Jeff and Sharona so much. It was a short lovable and sexy story without any love making scenes (apart from the hot kisses).
I loved the love bite on Jeff's neck it showed possessiveness and lust though I'm not a fun of love bites.
It was an amazing read. ...more
This is a story of 2 people once bitten and twice shy, so to speak! Sharona and Jeff both have been burned and are skittish with relationships. They are both passionate about what they do; which is that Sharona is an accountant who has passion in what she does and genuinely wants to help people.... ...more
First and foremost, Shark Week just finished but I'm still dealing with my shark obsession and this book goes perfectly with that. Second, I love Bliss Imprint books and I'm in desperate need of a break from emotional, angst filled reads. Also, I love books where people "hook up" thinking they'll... ...more
Another GREAT fun afternoon read this past weekend for me!
I'll start by saying that my favorite part of this book was the dual POV. Somehow, for me, these types of books are more enjoyable because there's zero guessing about anything. You know what's in everyone's head!
The story was sexy and fun... ...more
This book was such a fun, sexy read. I read it in one sitting not wanting to put it down. I was smiling and laughing right along with all the wit and sarcasm.

This was a fun and sexy read. I loved the characters and that there was a dual POV of Jeff and Sharona. I liked that these characters were unique.

Being a book in Entangled’s Bliss line, Love Bites is on the sweeter side of romance, however it is still every bit as sexy as I’ve come to expect from author Ophelia London. Every time I read a... ...more
Bliss books always deliver a sweet love story. This one sure does. I need to just start with the title. It's brilliant. I so love when the title has meaning in the story and this one plays a fun role. Oh, no...I will not tell. But you're sure to enjoy it as much as I did. Hehe.
An almost one-night... ...more
Love Bites was a super fast read and one that left you filled with warmth and grin plastered to your face. Sharona and Jeff meet in an unfortunate way, at least for Jeff. I’m not too sure anyone would be as calm as Jeff was when having a Bloody Mary spilled all over himself during a long 24 hour... ...more

Sharona went to Australia for work, but on the way there she already catches the eye of a gorgeous guy named Jeff, when she accidentally spills the drink on him.

Love Bites was such a fun and entertaining read.
I'm a huge fan of Ophelia London's writing and once again she's given us a great story with lovable and relatable characters.
From the first page I knew I was going to enjoy this short story, once I started reading I couldn't put it down.
