Salty Sebastian (Smirk Series Book 3) By Jen Luerssen. Absolutely loved this book. It’s just what I was looking for. While I think you can read this book as a stand-alone I recommend them all for sure. This author takes readers on a story ride that leaves you wishing is wasn’t over. I stayed up well into the night because I just couldn’t put Sebastian and Kit’s story down. The characters are complex and relatable and I think they may be one of my top favorites for main characters this year. It’s well written and paced nicely. I sometimes forgot I was reading a book, since it played out in my head so vividly. I’m excited to read more by this author. I’m giving this story a five star review and highly recommend it!
Salty Sebastian (Smirk Series book 3) by Jen Luerssen is a great contemporary romance and is a wonderful fun read. This romantic comedy, like the other books in this series, is one of the most funniest stories I have read. Jen has hit her stride when she wrote these books. Being told in the male point of view is wonderful and her dialogue and humour is top notch and spot on. I found myself laughing out loud and so engrossed in the lives of these wacky characters. It is sexy and steamy and there were some tender moments that made you go ‘ah’ and others that made you go ‘what’. The story feels so realistic as we follow these crazy friends, who are family, through their lives, with all their quirks and sexy smexy innuendos, teasing and mateship, love and flaws, hope and wonder.
I am happy to have more of these characters and this series, as I said before, one book is not enough. Keep em coming Jen.

Salty Sebastian was a great 5 star read. And book three in the Smirk Series.
While in Vegas for a wine convention Kit meets Sebastian. He sort of saves her from a humiliating hook up that gave me a LOL moment. After a few hours of flirting they end up having a hot and steamy evening.
Fate steps in and two years later Kit ends up getting hired by Sebastian’s partner to work an internship at their winery. She has a dream to run her own winery one day. Sebastian has always kept boundaries with the interns, will he be able to with Kit? Can these two have a future?
I’m on track now and I”m not letting a one-night stand in Vegas derail me. Even the hottest night of my life -Kit
I really loved Kit she had me lol so many times. I loved the nickname she came up with for Sebastian as well, it fit perfectly. Sebastian was an alpha male with a dominant side to him. Kit really pushed his buttons at times. The connection these two had was great. If you’re looking for a great romance with some lol moments this is the book for you. Jen does a great pulling you in with her writing. I look forward to reading more from her.

I just love how this author ties in her titles to the stories, they are awesome. I loved this one and it might be my favorite so far.
I love a second chance romance and this one was completely fantastic. It had a bit of a twist in it that for some reason I never saw coming and I actually love when an author can catch me off guard. Sebastian is why this book is my favorite, there was just something about him that drew me in immediately and the interactions between him and Kit were perfection.
I love how this author writes, the way her words transition so easily which makes the reading that much more enjoyable, and how she includes all of the leading characters from the first 2 books and the friendship bonds are awesome. I fell in love with Kit’s parents and its those family bonds that grab me and hold on in books. It’s definitely one of my favorite things.
I recommend reading these in order, you really won’t appreciate all of the characters if you don’t, I can not wait for more from this author.

Salty Sebastian by Jen Luerssen
Salty Sebastian is the third book in the Smirk Series by Jen Luerssen. Thin book can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading this series in order because all of the books are great reads. This book had me hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until the last page. This is such a fun book to kick off the summer. It was lighthearted with some twists and the chemistry between Sebastian and Kit is off the charts. I just really enjoyed this book.

Salty Sebastian is Book 3 in the Smirk Series by author Jen Luerssen, this is my second read in this series and each book can be read as a stand-alone and be just as enjoyed if read as part of the series. From the moment you open this book or even when you read this book’s synopsis you are physically laughing out loud, from start until the very end!
Jen Luerssen has created another captivating and addictive read. This was a light-hearted comedy romance that keeps you captivated until the end. It was a smooth flowing easy read, that was a pleasure to read! She has created more relatable, real characters that I absolutely loved reading about their journey through this book.
Everything about this book made it captivating, enjoyable and totally brilliant read, I can’t wait to read what other books come to this series, but until then you will defiantly love reading these, I highly recommend this book, you will not be disappointed.

Salty Sebastian is the 3rd book in the Smirk Series by Jen Luerssen. I had never previously read any books by this author before this and wasn’t aware when I started that there were 2 books that came before it. Each book in the series can be read as a stand-alone although the same group of friends appear in each book. I certainly didn’t feel like I was missing any important information when reading this one, although I’m now intrigued as to what went on before. Although I’d like to read the previous book, I’m sure they are going to have a hard job living up to Sebastian and Kit as I loved their story.
Salty Sebastian is a contemporary romance that will have you in fits of laughter in many parts. I absolutely adored the interaction with Kit and her 2 dads Peyton and Sig. They really have no filter and are quite happy to discuss their own sex life and that of their daughter, much to the horror of Kit many times.
A bit of background to the story – Kit and Sebastian meet and have a wild passionate night in Vegas but don’t as much as exchange their names with each other. Fast forward 2 years and Kit is hired as an intern in Sebastian’s wine business. Let’s just say that their night 2 years previously has never left either of their minds and has changed both their lives in many ways.
Can Sebastian and Kit take up where they left off, considering that Sebastian is now her boss? Is Sebastian willing to let a woman get close to him after he has sworn off relationships when he discovered his long term girlfriend with another guy?
Salty Sebastian(Smirk Series book 3) by Jen Luerssen
This is the third book in the series but the second book by this author that I have read and I was just as engrossed in this book as I was the first. The author has a refreshing writing style and very unique characters. I just couldn’t put this book down.
The unique way that Kit and Sebastian meet makes this book so original. The chemistry between them is quite sizzling. I really like how the book isn’t predictable and has quite a realistic flow. I loved the fact that the characters were so believable and I could relate to them. This book was such a great read that I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
Salty Sebastian by Jen Luerssen is Book 3 In the Smirk Series and was a great second chance romance read for
me. I absolutely loved Frank’s book and the whole gang was back again in this happy, sweet, funny read.
Kit and Sebastian have an amazing one night stand in Vegas whole they are both away attending a convention. It was the best night and morning of both of their lives. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas right? WRONG!!! Kit and Sebastian parted ways and never exchanged names, numbers or even where they lived.
2 years later Kit goes to Thirsty Monkey for a job and Mikey hires her right away. She’s over qualified but she knows her stuff. When Mikey brings Sebastian to meet the new intern she hired, both Sebastian and Kit are speechless. Thoughts of that amazing, hot night come rushing back in their minds. How is Kit going to be able to work for Sebastian and how is Sebastian going to be able to get any work done with Kit as one of his employees.
Both Kit and Sebastian are very hot and cold with each other but the attraction is there and they cannot deny they both have feelings for each other. What will happen when a big secret is brought to light after they finally have another amazing night? Will they be able to see past this secret? No one is really at fault but it happened and now it must be dealt with. Amazing characters, great storyline and this was just a shiny 5 star read

Sebastian has always come off as a more mature person than his friends. So i was curious to see inside and what makes him tick. We get to see another side and see why he enjoys his friends and their ridiculous teasing and banter. I really love Sebass (to quote Mikey) he is such a great character. Romantic, Straight laced, calm (unless drinking) and honest (which i loved about him) plus he is more mature so he doesn’t do all his thinking with his emotions. I was worried early on with all the hot and cold he and Kit were showering each other with but I understood it all later. Kit fits in seamlessly with this group of crazy characters. She is outspoken, brash and has a good head on her shoulders. The more I got to know her the more I liked her.
As for secondary characters. I really can’t say enough and think enough about Sig and Peyton! They are the BEST! Sure it was nice to see Lia (with her made up names), Frank (grumpy), Mikey (outrageousness), Joe and the Crew. I love seeing them together but in this one Sig and Peyton take home the trophy.
The author continues the wonderful strategy of having the characters tell the story as well as talk to me…the reader. It’s a perfect combination. While this is the third in the series you can easily read it as a stand alone. The story was surprising, which I love, and fun filled. How can it not be with this crew!
