Rebecca Donovan had me envious of the 50’s style persona from the very beginning. A confident and mature woman who is comfortable in her own skin is a female lead character I can get behind. Rebecca makes me long for some cat-eye glasses and pantyhose with a seam up the back. She’s sexy and sassy.
Charlie is your typical man-whore, not yet reformed. It’s always a good start for me as these are generally my favorite “type” of heroes. You know, where the guy is a huge slut and then meets the girl that he has a real emotional connection to… the girl he’s willing to forsake all other women for. Love that and Charlie didn’t disappoint.
I’m still not sure I 100% believe the quick jump from one night of sexy sex a year before this novel starts to madly-in-love-can’t-live-without-you-ness that the characters morphed into in less than a month. The character development, for me, could have gone a little deeper.
Though I don’t mind reading books told from a third person point of view, I will say I found it a little more difficult with this book despite the clear indication at the beginning of each chapter. Rebecca’s POV was easy enough for me to follow, but Charlie’s thoughts felt more like a woman’s thoughts if she were trying to think like a man by the frequent use of the word “dude”. Occasionally I thought I was reading from Rebecca’s POV and would find out it was still Charlie.
I enjoyed the steamy parts and the suspense as well as the hot “calendar” guys that appear frequently. This book was definitely packed full of testosterone and hunky men.
I hope you all love reading my novels as much as I love writing them.
