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 is second book in The Point Series. This is Blake and Stella’s story. After finishing up New Point and falling in love with Zoe and Miles, I couldn’t wait to hear more about Blake and now he’s here!!
Blake Campbell is a former famous college football star from IU, who now manages two successful sports teams. He is all work no play. Blake has spent his entire adult life taking care of his sister, Zoe. He is overprotective of Zoe, but not without very good reason.
You get to start from the beginning, which is also the start of Stella’s meeting with the two. Zoe is attending college and Stella Baccino happens to be her RA. Blake comes to the dorms to see his little sister and that is where he meets Stella for the first time. Stella was head over heels for Blake, tripping over herself, literally after first meeting him. He is pressed and polished and the epitome of perfection. Stella had no idea he was famous and had no intentions of ever being with Blake after her and Zoe became very best friends. Zoe is used to girls becoming close to her to get to her brother, and Stella didn’t want to be one them. So, she kept her feelings to herself.
The more time Stella spends with Zoe the more her attraction for Blake grows, as does his for her. But for years, neither act on it. Then tragedy strikes and it affects them all. Stella is left broken as her best friend is pulling away, Blake at a loss as someone he has protected with his whole life more like a father figure is lost and shattered. In this tragedy, they all find themselves, but it’s not an easy road.
Will the man who always took care of his sister, finally take care of himself? Will Stella finally find happiness with Blake?
I loved hearing Blake and Stella’s story. It intertwined so perfectly with Pressure Point (Zoe’s story), which I highly recommend reading before you read Pressure Point. Stella and Blake’s relationship was filled with tons of emotion. That man seriously just melts my heart! We saw his protective side in Pressure Point, but never really got to know the man himself and god I am so glad Olivia decided to show us! This book was emotional, sexy and heart-warming. You will fall in love with all the characters, Zoe and Miles in New Point, Blake and Stella, Stella’s other friend Violet she meets through work in addition to Stella’s family, which I adore!! I look forward to continuing the journey with Olivia in her next book, Point of No Return, which will be Violet’s story. 4.5 Stars!!
