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.
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.
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 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!
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.
