There I was, minding my own business at Peachtree Books when this lunatic comes racing in the door and knocks me into his arms. I would have ripped him a new one, but he was kinda familiar, and hot. Like I-want-to-have-your-sexy-babies-now hot.

Turns out he looks familiar because I stare at his gorgeous face on TV every week. Yup, Dalton Deangelo. In the oh-so-firm flesh.

I let him hide out from the press for a while, then I thought he'd be on his way, and I could breathe normally again. But no. He found me interesting. He wanted to tag along to my cousin's wedding with me. I couldn't say no to that face ... or THOSE EYES. Before the night was through, he was saying sweet things, then dirty things. Very dirty things.

I try to keep my eyes wide open. I've made terrible, stupid mistakes in the past. But Dalton Deangelo's touch turns me to Jell-O.

I'm just a regular girl, and he's rich and famous with no body fat. The guy has a butler! So, why is he chasing me? And why can't I say no? And what is this sordid secret of his the reporters are trying to uncover?

Reviewed by Kelly.

I was looking for something funny and light to read and thought this was it. This author is funny. I was cracking up! I was highlighting everything on my kindle. I am a labor and delivery nurse and sex is always a topic there. Patients say anything and you just have to go with the flow. I have found myself picking up my jaw off the floor many times with the things they say. Then there are times when I try not to crack up and keep a straight face. I thought I heard everything until I read her book. Let me share some with you. I can't share all of what I highlighted, it's not appropriate.Okay, I couldn't share any of the parts where she uses phrases and metaphors for the private parts of women and men. I may hear things all the time but I don't say it in my own every day world so I just couldn't share it. But here are some others...

I'm not the fun girl in my group of friends. That would be Shayla, entertaining everyone with her stories about the restaurant she manages, and all the young people who work there and fornicate like forest bunnies after hours.

I knocked off my sandals and rubbed my muddy foot off in the wet grass. Was I standing in a pile of logs deposited by Mr Galloway's cat? Wow, when things go downhill in my life, they really pick up speed.

"You sound like my mother." "That's okay. If I start to sound like my mother, just smother me with a pillow."

I thought about stones in a creek, then I thought about stardust, then I thought about absolutely nothing.

Anyway, even though she was funny, I just didn't find the story, as in I didn't get what was going on. I didn't connect with the characters at all. Then I just had to put it down. I just didn't get it. So, it wasn't for me. Maybe it will be for you if you like lots of humor.
