1st book I have read by this author and I loved it. Great story about a girl who wants to love the guy but doesn't know how. Quinn & Audie are great characters. There's a little mystery, suspense, humor and steam. Real quick read.
Very, very seductive. Chicago "Martha Stewart" type girl, meets Irish Catholic Detective. Hilarious and full of sass and sizzle.
Excellent chemistry and laugh out loud funny story!
Great Read!! Hot Steamy Sex!! Nice story line! Delightful characters
This is one of my all time favorite contemporary romances. A real 'keeper' and worth rereading every so often.
I would have never read this author, but for seeing her listed here on PBS.
Audie, a young woman with minimal domestic talents, takes over for her mother who is akin to Heloise. Along the way, she is threatened with bodily harm by someone who has a grudge against her.
Enter the yummy police officer and you have a great read to pass the time.
This is a very sexy book. And a great mystery. Part Martha Stewart, part Carmen Electra, Autumn Adams who is under the protection of sexy Detective Quinn takes you on a great read.
Loved this book, after reading this book this author became an auto buy author for me.
I'm going to be the odd-man-out and say how tiring this book was. I almost quit reading at page 200. The heroine was so damaged from her dysfunctional family that I don't buy the turn-around at the end. I wanted to scream at Quinn, "Run! Run like the wind! Because this woman will never be anything but emotionally empty." I even started skimming the sex scenes coz I just didn't give a damned about these two people together.
This is my first and my last Susan Donovan novel.
I really enjoyed this book. This is the first time I've read any books from this author. I plan on reading more of her books. There is humor, mystery and romance. Great book!!
Donovan is amazing--she wrote a sex scene that scorches the page--and Audie and Quinn aren't even touching!
Who wouldn't want a sexy detective following you around making sure your safe? I sure would if was Stacy Quinn. He's charming, strong and a great cook. Did I mention he cleans?
I guess the book is ok for the genre, but it seemed to me to be too heavy on the sex and too light on the mystery.
A funny and sweet story, it was really easy to like the characters. Both the men and women were well written and had more substance than your usual man/woman romance.
A quick and easy read.
Loved it. Great story. Laughs, sex, what could be better.
Funny read with great character development. A great fast read.
A cute story about an independent woman being threatened by a stalker. In comes a hunky cop who is assigned to protect her. The rest is predictable, but fun.
This is not your cozy mystery, it's a fun read, that keeps moving. Not for everyone, spicier than the usual mystery. I enjoyed it and the author is usually good for a quick read on a rainy afternoon.
Great read. Loved the cop's big Irish family. Great chemistry between the H and h.
When you mix one part business with all parts pleasure things can get downright dellicious. Autumn Adams never planed to follow in her mothers foorsteps as Chicagos answer to Martha Stewart, she can't cook, doesn't clean and would rather play soccer then discuss the joys of cleaning bathroom grout. Someone is sending her threats in the mail and Detective Quinn is determined to examine her every nook. Digging through Audie's many layers turns out to be the hottest, craziest, sexiest piece of detective work he ever attempted if it doesn't kill him first! Good read.
Great story. Well worth reading. Action, romance & some laughs.
It was a cute story. I thought it moved a little slow. But worth the read.
This is one of Susan Donavan's best books.. You can not read this book and keep from laughing or at least smiling through it.. She is also an auto-buy for me..
Absolutely fun book to read. A great romance. She's an autobuy.
Light-hearted fun. I really enjoyed my first exposure to this author and plan to read more.
Excellent....funny......kept me guessing
I really enjoyed this book!!!!! Quick Read....
A really good contemporary romance with a little suspense thrown in for good measure. Enjoyable!
A fabulous, rare blend between mystery and chick lit! I am off to find more titles by Susan Donovan!
Loved this book. It's got everything you could ask for in a romance novel. Compelling, sexy hero & heroine. Wonderful humor. Well paced plot.
Very cute book! I really enjoyed it. Great author
Very funny book! Nice light read.
What an enjoyable read. I just love Susan Donovan!
Great h/h-she's obligated to take over her "Mommy Dearest's" household hints column when she'd rather be coaching soccer. She becomes the victim of a wierd stalker, and is assigned to a totally yummy Chicago detective who takes his duty seriously. She has spaz/klutz tendencies under pressure, he loves and laughs in a big way. Lots of angst and some great one liners. Pretty hot, too!
This book had me in tears three chapters before the end, and smiling at the end. I was very drawn into the book, and it was as great read! One of Ms. Donovan's best works!
Great book. Funny, sexy, and heart felt. You will enjoy it.
Susan Donovan's writing style reminds me a lot of Linda Howard. Fast moving, sexy, and a great story.
Quinn and Auty,s story was fun to read. Read it in 24 hours.:-)
Autumn Adams never planned to follow in her mother's footsteps as Chicago's answer to Martha Stewart--she can't cook, doesn't clean, and would rather play soccer than discuss the joys of white bathtub grout. Then some lunatic starts sending her threats in the mail and Audie finds herself under the protection of simmering, sexy Detective Stacey Quinn, a man determined to examine her every nook, cranny and ex-boyfriend in his effort to find the stalker. A disarming combination of macho cop and sweet charmer. Quinn is hard to resist. But with Audie's bad luck at finding and holding on to Mr Right, she thinks it's best to keep her distance.
Quinn soon discovers that the real Audie is an alluring blend of fantasy babe and tender-hearted female all wrapped up in what he can only hope is leopard-print underwear. She's not what he's always pictured for himself, but could she be everything he'll ever need?
Digging through Audie's many layers could turn out to be te hottest, craziest, sexiest bit of detective work Quinn has ever attempted...if it doesn't kill him first.
I will be on vacation from April 29th til May 13th. If you are interested in this book, understand it can not be shipped during this time frame.
