Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx.
She likes outdoorsy guys with both muscle and heart and independent women ready to try something new.
Falling head-first into the wrong woman’s bed was not how Reed Bishop’s night was supposed to go. Now a gorgeous, half-naked ballet dancer was threatening his manhood…with a book. He can’t blame her.
This is part of the Accidental Love series and features a DEA agent, Reed Bishop, who is endeavouring to track down Stacey who is his missing informant in a potentially high profile case. She is a prima ballerina who has, unknown to him, sub let her studio apartment to her understudy…. which is how he ended up falling onto the bed in which Talia was sleeping! After this inauspicious introduction, he manages to convince Talia that it is unsafe for her to remain in her new apartment and takes her to stay in his – her sleeping in his bed whilst he sleeps on his couch! As the investigation continues the attraction between the two grows. Can they resist temptation?
This is a hot, steamy, erotic romantic suspense with plenty of action. There were times when you needed to suspend any reality check (I mean, would you really go stay with someone who let themselves into your apartment on your first night there?) but it is still a good story line and plenty of twist and turns in the plot as well as in the bedroom (and elsewhere). There are fun times, too – like when Talia tries to cook and family dynamics also have a role to play. Will they get to catch the bad guys? You’ll just have to read it yourself to discover what happens!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
