Do You Feel It Too? by Nicola Rendell Review



A hot summer night is perfect for feeling your way in the dark…

For urban-legend hunter and television host Gabe Powers, it’s business—investigate the most notorious haunted places in Savannah. Then he meets his new sound engineer, a dewy Georgia peach who may just turn this gig into (im)pure pleasure. All it takes is one night for them to conjure floor-rattling, wall-banging moans…but they’re not from the ghosts.

Blame the rippling abs, the cocky swagger, the granite jawline, the whole muscle-bulging package, but Gabe is bringing out good-girl Lily Jameson’s dirty side. Damn her code-of-conduct contract—this isn’t just a molten-hot fling.

There’s just one kink in the relationship they’ve been avoiding: soon they’ll be going their separate ways. Lily’s home is in Savannah, and Gabe is a globe-trotter at heart. For them to be together, they’ll both have to upend their so-very-different worlds and face their fears in the process. And suddenly things don’t feel so Georgia peachy keen at all.



Nicola Rendell hasn’t written a book that I haven’t enjoyed immensely. In fact, with each new book that she releases, she just seems to get better and better. She ticks off all my boxes, and her writing is, quite simply, romantic comedy genius. She always gives me exactly what I’m looking for when I sit down with one of her smart and witty romcoms, and it’s this is why she’s become a favorite author of mine.

I absolutely loved everything about Gabe and Lily—from their charmingly awkward meet-cute to their sweet ending in the epilogue, this was a couple whose ride I was happy to be on. Their chemistry was instantaneous, sparking right off the page and practically crackling in the air around them. This couple was positively electric together, and Rendell did an incredible job of capturing that chemistry and conveying it to the reader. They were just so naughty together, and as is always the case with Rendell’s writing, this was a seriously hot and sexy story! I feel in love right along with Gabe and Lily. They were that couple, the one you can’t help but root for, the one you want together as much as they want to be together. In my mind, there just was no other way for them to end up but together. I wouldn’t exactly call this an insta-love situation, but this relationship definitely moved fast and that was exactly how I wanted it for them. They had their share of issues to sort through and deal with, though, so it wasn’t exactly smooth sailing the whole way, but I found that I really enjoyed this relationship’s build up. The side characters were fun, and they added dimension and depth, rounding out this story from something fantastic into something truly special. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention The General, Lily’s pet parrot. Hands down, he’s my favorite pet ever written, and I was laughing audibly at the things that came out of this brilliant bird’s mouth.

Do You Feel It Too was romantic, sexy and sweet, and I sighed, smiled, swooned and snort laughed my way through it from cover-to-cover. I loved absolutely everything about this fantastic book, and I finished it with a blush on my cheeks and a full, happy heart. Do You Feel It Too by Nicola Rendell gets five smooches from me!
