What a yummy cover. I expected this book to be a fun, hot little number, but it was just so much more. Flat-Out Sexy is a modern day fairy tale and Elec is a modern day Prince Charming! Elec and Tamara are two very likable characters, who you find yourself cheering for their HEA, while some complications are thought through by Tamara. While the escapades are very, very hot (satisfaction guaranteed), this story is relationship driven and all the characters involved you come to care for. This is book one in a Racing Series, all I can say is that I hope its the beginning of a 12 book series! The next book in the series is Hard and Fast. It will be released in May 2009 and will be the story of Imogen and Ty. She is Tamaras up tight assistant, hes the Godfather of Tamaras daughter and a playboy racecar driver. The preview in the back of the book makes me think May is a long time away!
This is my first Erin McCarthy book, and I think I have another author to gobble up their backlist!!! Thank you Ms. McCarthy for a book I cannot part with!
Love It! Love It! Love It! Elec and Tamara were smoking hot together! They couldn't seem to keep their hands off each other. Not only was this book steamy hot, it was laugh out loud funny as well. Elec is every woman's dream man; not only is he "flat-out sexy," he's caring, charming, great with her kids, attentive, and a great listener. (If only he was real and not a character in a book. LOL) Everyone has, or wish they had, a friend like Suzanne. She's absolutely hilarious. She and Ryder have an interesting dynamic that I hope will be explored further in a book of their own. I read the snippet at the back of the book which is Imogen (Emma Jean, lol) and Ty's story. From what I read it promises to be another sizzling hot read. I'm impatiently waiting to read it. I got this one from the library, but I definitely will be picking up a copy to add to me "keeper" shelf! Absolutely worth the read.

I fell in love with the characters of this book! I like Erin McCarthy, but I think Flat-Out Sexy is her best yet. I could not put it down! Tamara, a racecar driver's widow, literally bumps into a rookie driver at a fundraiser. While she thinks she is looking for someone more "boring" than a racecar driver, she quickly falls in lust with her rookie. I believe that McCarthy is going to make this a series...
I really enjoyed this book. I wasnt sure I would because the cover seemed to be trying too hard, but as they say, shouldnt judge a book by its cover because I loved this one. Great normal, family involving romance set along the backdrop of the racing scene. The story focuses less on the scene though and mroe on character development and their relationships which I loved.
I find some erotica tends to go heavy on steamy and light on story. This combined the content of a great mainstream romance with some HOT stuff.
The main characters were extremely likeable (LOVE Suzanne!) and I found myself wanting to read stories about all of them.
I do not keep much erotica-usually a catch and release sort of gal, but this one is staying on my keeper shelf.
This was a fun read. Not out of this world, but not bad either. Interesting peek into the world of racing. My one complaint was the hero's name; Elec. It just didn't read well. I kept changing it to Eric in my head.
Erin McCarthy is a hit or miss author. I've read books that were such garbage I couldn't finish. Then there's a book like Flat-Out Sexy. I don't think I'd ever describe her books as great but she certainly can spin an entertaining yarn.
In this case the story is about a widow with two young children who tries to have a one night stand with a hot younger man. He, in the way of sexy men who in no way represent men in the real world, wants a relationship. He manages to find a place in her life, but only if they keep their connection a secret.
The story establishes some background for other characters about whom there will be future books. Overall a good start. That said, my experience with McCarthy is the first book is good, the second book is unreadable. I probably will end this series here!
Really really liked this book. I don't even care for Nascar but enjoyed this book based around it. The female main character is older than the male lead character. She has a few body issues, which always helps with believability. Enjoyed the book..think you will too.
Great story and good start to a new series! Elec is smoking hot & he and Tamara make the perfect pair. Loved how the story gives Elec a ready made family that
he adores. Love the family dynamics of Elec & Tamara's
families. Very sweet story!
