Blue Ballsby Published 08 Aug 2017
Truth: A painful condition caused by a prolonged state of sexual arousal without release.
Myth: Only affects males.
I’m beyond frustrated with the man who’s left me high and very far from dry. Multiple times. But, somehow, even though I’m not interested in a relationship, Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Handsome keeps me coming back for more—one crazy, sexual debacle after the next.
Come hell or high water, the stars will align, and the release will be out of this world.
I’m captivated with the woman who’s left me sixty-nine shades of blue, and she's only in this for one thing. The first time, I blew it—and not in the good way—but I’m going to ensure we finally see it through. I need to put an end to this “plague” of sexual calamities and prove to Sarah that we can have more.
It's time to grab the universe by the balls and show it who's boss.
"Blue Balls" Reviews
Blue Balls is a hilarious spin off of R.C. Boldt's Clam Jam as we follow Jack and Sarah on a crazy whirlwind of sexcapades that never really happen. This novel was so funny, heartwarming and sexy. I might even have a crush on Jack as he is a perfectly awkward, endearing and smoking hot hero who has a thing for our heroine. Together these two lit up my Kindle and had my face hurting from smiling from ear to ear.
As the respective best friends of Ry and Maggie from Clam Jam, we had an idea of how awesome these characters were but in Blue Balls we find out just how amazing these characters are together. Battling a case of spine tingling attraction, when Jack and Sarah decide to become more than friends IT.WAS.ON. The buildup is fantastic and just as these two are about to seal the deal every time, enter a serious case of blue balls. If it's not a fire alarm or a serious case of wasabi mouth on nether regions (YES, you read correctly LOL), there is always a reason for their incessant "almost all the way" interruptions. But what happens when Sarah's serious fear of committment puts the brakes on their love story? Will Jack be able to show her that they are truly the exception to her no commitment rule?
I seriously loved this novel. Maggie was fantastic in Clam Jam but Sarah was honestly out of this world amazing in this novel. She was so strong, sassy and sexy. I wanted to be her best friend. And Gah!! Jack was EVERYTHING! He was strong, sexy, awkward and so honest. I absolutely loved this novel and felt it was the perfect combination of lighthearted romance and poignant emotional scenes and an all-around feel good romance. We were able to get lost in an outstanding love story with ALLLL the amazing banter, feels and chemistry! Bravo! 4.5 Stars! ~Ratula
This is probably the third time I’ve said that an RC Boldt book is my new favorite. And, no disrespect to my previous favorites, but I think that Blue Balls might be my new favorite RC Boldt book.
Actually, maybe they’re all my favorites for different reasons, but when it comes to the romantic comedies? Blue Balls is the real deal, y’all. It’s laugh-out-loud funny in a way that was sometimes awkward when it hit me in public places (sorry everyone on my commuter bus!); it’s heartfelt in a way that sneaks up on you and before you know it you’re sighing and swooning without ever seeing it coming; and it features a heroine who is basically my spirit animal as well as a hero who seems to have been crafted just for me.
So, I’m standing by my (possibly slightly over-used) declaration: this book is my new favorite RC Boldt book.
Sarah and Jack are perfect together. I mean, there are lots of obstacles standing in their way – the title on this book is no joke. These two do a lot of, erm, suffering in the name of love (or at least in the name of sexy times) – but in the middle of all the painful *ahem* blue balls, there develops this genuine, sweet, adorable relationship. The sweetness hits in moments and scenes, surrounded by some steamy hot chemistry and a whole lot of bawdy humor that never crossed a line for me – which is impressive. Bawdy doesn’t always work for me, but I’m not kidding about all the times I laughed out loud. This book is funny and Ms. Boldt somehow makes bawdy charming which…might be magic. For real.
Can we also just talk about how Jack was basically the best hero of all time? Based on what we got of him in Clam Jam I hadn’t expected his character to be written the way he was but, holy cats you guys – I found him completely irresistible. If I could create a dream hero he would basically look a lot like Jack. I adored him – in every capacity. As a human, as a friend, and probably especially how he treated Sarah. He is simply the best.
Speaking of Clam Jam, those of us who fell in love with Maggie and Ry in that book will be delighted with the time we get to spend with them in Blue Balls. It was an extra treat getting to see their story continue to involve on the periphery of Sarah and Jack’s story. The whole thing worked for me – it made me happy and swoony and the ending could not have been more perfect. I loved it so much. So, sorry other favorite RC Boldt books, looks like we have a new champ (I mean, at least for now). ~ Shelly, 4.5 Stars
I have wanted to read R.C. Boldt forever! All of her books appeal to me in one way or another. Blue Balls is the one that I got to read first and I am so happy that I did. This book had me rolling on the floor with its humor and as it unfolded I got caught up in the sweetness of the storyline. It is just the beginning of my obsession with R.C. Boldt’s writing because I’ll definitely be going back for more.
Sarah, who steers away from commitment leads the way in this laugh out loud story. She is hilarious in her inner dialogue and her conversations with her vagina had me laughing so hard while on an airplane that I think everyone thought I was nuts.
Jack easily became one of my newest book boyfriends. I have a soft spot for hot nerdy guys. Everything he did to show Sarah that he wanted more with her touched my heart.
Together the two of them and their journey was everything you could want in a book. The push/pull, the chemistry and the comedy of errors that Ms. Boldt has woven into their storyline is amazing.
When I read this author's other romcom Clam Jam, I loved it. I was so excited to hear about this book. She can write her other books with such beauty, and her RomComs with amazing humor.
Sarah was awesome. She was open and honest and didn't care what others througt. When I was in her head it was vivid and I could picture it all. I want to be like her when I grow up.
Jack was so hot, in a nerdy, strange kind of way. (Just kidding, a little) I love how much he cares about Sarah. He didn't give up when he knew what he wanted, even when he did start to give up, he kept going.
I laughed so hard with this book. Not only from the title but every funny thing that happens in this sort was perfect. Light on the drama, high in the humor. I love all the strange jokes the author added into this book.
I really, this book was fun and and light hearted and I read it in one sitting. The writing was impeccable and I can't wait to see if this author writes us another Rom-Com in the future. I would love to see Clint get a book! 5 stars #2OCCJD
This book is so ridiculous but that's what makes it that much more hysterical! As I read it, I kept thinking there's no way all these things can happen but that just makes the story THAT much more believable. Because everyone knows when you're 'that' close, an interruption and the resulting blue balls, feel like the end of the world. I was feeling the frustration along with Sarah and Jack.
If you read Clam Jam, Maggie and Ry's story, you've met Sarah and Jack. Well this is their story. And what a story. I haven't read CJ but I will be!!!
Sarah and Jack have had chemistry since their BFF's hooked up and are getting married. And every time they get close to acting on it, something happens. So yes, maybe they aren't meant to hook up. But they make such great friends, that just have off the charts chemistry, and don't want to date anyone else.
Definitely a feel good, make you laugh out loud and shake your head read.
3.5 chasing the orgasm stars
➦This was my first book by R.C. Boldt but I've had my eye on her work for a while now. One thing I like is that she comes up with original ideas for her romcoms. Even these covers are hard to ignore - they sure do stand out.
➦I found this read to be thoroughly entertaining, albeit not as funny as I was expecting. These two main characters were trying real hard to do the deed and kept failing.
➦If I didn't feel exhausted by these events I would have felt bad for this fictional couple. :D In all honesty, I think the book didn't need to have this many orgasm fails and instead should have concentrated on developing the characters more. I never completely fell in love with the hero because I felt like he was underdeveloped. I really didn't know much about him even at the end of the story. I did like him because of his actions throughout the book but some background would have been amazeballs.
➦Anywho, if you're looking for a romcom with an original trope then this would be it. Will these two have their happy ending?
This is the first book that I have read by Boldt and it definitely will not be my last. Where has she been hiding? There are just to many books on my TBR and the fact that I read and review so many, makes it hard at time to keep up with new-to-me-authors. Boldt definitely delivers and awesome, laugh out loud, sexy, rom-com. I now have to try and find time to read more of her work!
If the title doesn't catch your eye and the blurb doesn't hook you then you need your head examined. Blue Balls is hysterical! Sarah has lusted after Jack for far to long and when they find themselves as the maid of honor and best man at their friends wedding, Sarah's need to mount the man increases tenfold...LOL
The banter between the two of them is dynamite! They are both witty, strong, lovable characters. Sarah isn't afraid to finally go after what and who she wants and then when it ends, you guessed it, with Blue Balls, let the hysterics ensue. These two have pussyfooted around their attraction for one another for a long time and the fact that they can't even make it through their first time together will have you rolling with laughter and then jumping back in for more.
Can Sarah and Jack finally find a way to make things work between them or will they both be stuck with a bad case of Blue Balls? I loved every minute of this quick, sexy, snarky, rom-com and I look forward to reading more of Boldt's work. Blue Balls is well written, engaging and Awesome! Go grab your copy and pull up your favorite chair and dive into this awesome, quick read and see what it is that I loved about Sarah and Jack!
