Blurb: Boudoir photographer Samantha Sawyer is seeking the perfect guy to help her with a little project—one that involves willing captives. Or experimenting with edible goodies. Or… The tricky part is that the fuzzy face of her dream-man has morphed into that of her new assistant, Rick West—whose gaze tends to make Samantha spontaneously combust.
But Rick forces himself to walk away, just as Samantha’s about to draw him in. She’s actually part of an undercover assignment, and partaking in her erotic world—enticing as it is—only makes his deception worse. Because once he’s tempted, there’s no going back…
Review: I was wanting something different than what has been on my reading list lately. Something lighter, and on the sweet side. This fit that pretty well. It definitely fell on the sweet side, right dead on the line of being too sugary.
The story was pretty decent and mostly believable, though both characters felt just a tad bit too mushy for me. The balance between strong and sweet is hard to achieve without being cold and hard or falling into mushy. These characters didn’t really come across as all that strong to me. They worked within the bounds of the story, but they weren’t the kinds of characters that I could fall in love with and why the story only rated a 3.
I like there to be a bit more depth in my romance stories than what this story had. This one was pretty predictable from the beginning as to what you could expect for the entire book. There really weren’t any surprises and that drops this into what I’d consider a cookie cutter romance. Decent and not a total waste of time, but just not all that special either.
