This is a very cute book, but a bit frustrating at times. Just remember the good guys always win in the end!
The fixation began on New Year's Day: Silky, expensive slips from New York and Italy. Camisoles and thongs from Beverly Hills. Before, Brenda Scott would have blushed to be caught dead in them. Now, she'd ditched the shy and mousy persona that had gotten her dumped by her rich and perfect fiance,and she was sexy. Underneath her sensible clothes, Brenda was the woman she wanted to be.
After all, why couldn't she be wild and crazy?
Nick, the sexy stranger she'd met on New Year's, already seemed to think she was. Of course, he didn't know the old Brenda. He didn't know about her brother and his failed life. He didn't know about her mother's embarrassing new boy-toy. He didn't know Brenda's awful boss. How long before Nick stripped it all away and found the truth beneath? And would that be a bad thing?
In life, it seemed, it was all about wht you put on and what you left off. And. of course, who you were wearing it for.
The old Brenda Scott never would have found herself waking up next to a complete stranger. While the new Brenda Scott might not exactly remember all the details of her wild night of passion--including her sexy lover's name--the experience inspires her to jettison her old mousy, quiet self and embrace a new daring, wild personality with an insatiable appetite for expensive lingerie. When a rival San Diego DJ, Nick Jordan, announces on air later that week that he is desperately searching for the woman with whom he shared a night of sensual bliss, Brenda realizes she has found her mystery lover. The only problem is deciding which Brenda--old or new--Nick really likes.
Variation on the "once burned twice shy" theme - two characters getting over bad relationships find each other.They evolve, particularly the heroine, who discovers her passion for lingerie as she gets over her hurt. H/H have a somewhat public courtship as they are competing radio DJs. Family hassles play into the general mix. Nice, low stress story.
Very cute story. Shows it takes more than lingerie to get the man.
Although Confessions of a Lingerie Addict isn't a book I plan on reading again and again, it's well worth reading. The story is fairly predictable, but the highs and lows of the heroine's courtship are still entertaining. The book actually reminded me in many ways of a Meg Ryan romantic comedy--light, PG-13 fun with a healthy dose of humor. Great for a stressful day or relaxing on the beach!
A fun summer read. I finished in one read, from Wisconsin to Missouri.
I enjoyed this book, but it is not one of my favorite's for this author. However, it was cute and different for Jennifer Ashley. Brenda is definitely a character that you can relate to, which keeps you reading. It is worth reading at least once.
This was a cute contemporary romance. I havne't read a lot of her books but would read her again. The story line is good and it does have some funny moments.
