This is a short, sizzling read by Carly Phillips. I enjoyed her Chandler brothers series and Hot Zone series. This, however, was a short read for Harlequin and left me a little unfulfilled. The plot seemed a little silly.

Ever since I first read "The Playboy" I have been an avid Carly Phillips fan. So I had to read the Simply Series. Simply Sinful, although definitely not her best work, is a fun and entertaining read. The relationship between Kane and Kayla is sexy and kind of taboo, which just makes it even more fun.

Although, the tortured hero was a little over the top for me, especially how he would be so convinced things wouldn't work out one minute and then be madly in love the next. For some reason I also was not a big fan of Captain Reid, even though he was supposed to be a likable character. I just found him to be kind of annoying. Luckily he is mentioned by other characters more than he actually appears in the book.

I loved Kayla's sister Catherine, every scene between Kane and Cat made me smile. She acts just how a good sister should. I'm halfway through Catherine's book "Simply Scandalous" and am loving it even more than this one. If you are a romance book fan, especially if you are a Carly Phillips fan, then "Simply Sinful" is definitely for you.

This is the most disappointing Carly Phillips book I've ever read (and I've read many of her books). The setting and tools used makes it appear to have been written in the 80's and not published until 2000. I don't mind period pieces, but they should be clear up front. That's not the only reason for my disappointment, though. Ms. Phillips barely develops the characters before they are lusting after each other and this continues without pause with each sentence. Even when the heroine is on the floor with a concussion, the hero is more concerned with her boobs than her injury. Please. This plot is thin and the characters shallow. Don't waste your time.

Detective Kane McDermott might be fighting a bad case of burnout, but that doesn't mean he's taking things easy. His latest assignment is to investigate Kayla Luck, to discover if the etiquette school she runs for awkward businessmen is really some kind of escort service. It looks cut-and-dried . . . Until he sets eyes on Kayla. She's smart, but she's also trusting to a fault and the heat that flairs up between them keeps getting in the way of Kane's best intentions. But if Kayla ever suspects his real motives, Kane will be the one who ends up getting burned . . .
