Peek Inside Love Bites

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 who spilled her drink on him, kissed him, then ran out without another word. 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 is going to make him let down his guard.

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...

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 sexin ...more

4-1/2 stars.

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! Sharon ...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 had m ...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

By Kelly August 18, 2014

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. Jef ...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 ne ...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 and ...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. I really enjoyed the characters and LOVED that both points of view were covered. Loved to hear his thoughts and hers! And Chapter 8 was so st ...more

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. There were moments when the book seems rushed and a bit too short for my liking but I still rather enjoyed this book. If you are looking for a great book ...more

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 boo ...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.

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 fli ...more

First of all, I love these characters. Sharona is a klutz after my own heart. Jeff is funny, smart, and caring. Jeff Cruz is a hometown Aussie boy turned hero. He’s a marine biologist specializing in Great White Sharks. Jeff has dedicated his life to l ...more

If you are looking for a quick afternoon read then look no farther than Love Bites. I devoured this book in one sitting and got totally lost in the story.

Jeff and Sharona are fantastic characters. From the moment they meet to the very last sentence you will be drawn to these two.

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. That’s not the first nor last time it happens, on the second time they actually hit it off, but when things are about to get hot, she frea ...more

My thoughts:

Sharks & Romance!

"I don't spill my drinks on just any man, you know." She touched his cheek. "only dashing shark lovers with panty dropping accents."

Love Bites by Ophelia London is the perfect bite of romance for an afternoon of reading pleasure.

I liked this book even though it was kind of short. I would have really liked to see what happened with her boss and see what happens with their relationship. It just left me feeling a little rushed and unsatisfied. But the overall story was really good though. It takes place over two days and these ...more

Who said biting couldn't be fun?

This was the perfect read during shark week. I look forward to it every year. After reading the synopsis of Love Bites I knew it would become one of my favorites. Ophelia London did not disappoint. It was refreshing to read a unique love story. I mean how many romance ...more

So I have a little mixed feelings about this book. Overall, I really enjoyed it.

My biggest issue with this book is that everything between ...more
