There's a lot more, but I did enjoy reading it. Just the fast-paced, quick read that I needed. The Vegas marriage was a bit unneeded for the plot, but I confess I just decided to ignore it. *g*
On impulse I decided to buy some books from Ellora's Cave last night. Decided to try a couple new authors, so I bought Bodyguard by Bev Havlir, Tales of the Shareem: Rees by Allyson James (no idea why I bought it, we'll see later if it's any good) and oddly enough, the next Trek Mi Q'an book by Jaid Black even though the first one was so over the top cheesy. Maybe that's why I bought it. *g* Sometimes you need over the top cheesy. So...I read Bodyguard last night. Here's the blurb from EC's site:
Dr. Paige Harrington devoted most of her young life to becoming a trauma surgeon. She missed out on a lot of things, including dating and relationships. But now she's ready for a change. Now that she's independent, she wants to enjoy herself, go out on dates and finally have some sex.
But her plans go awry when she witnesses a brutal murder. The only one who's seen the killer's face and lived to tell about it, the police are determined to protect their witness.
Detective Nick Santorelli is not happy about his latest assignment babysitting a prissy doctor. Things get more complicated when he finds himself attracted to Paige. He knows there is a sexy woman hiding underneath the bulky clothes and uptight attitude, and he sets out to prove himself right.
The two quickly find themselves mired in a hot, sexy affair. But there is danger stalking Paige, a killer who intends to leave no witnesses to his perverted crimes…
I rather liked it and it was another nice fast-paced read that I recommend if you're in the mood for a contemporary erotic romance. It's about 112 pages in pdf form, which I think usually think of as being category length in print books. So short, but not overly short. We've got a almost-virgin here, but since she's a young doctor and spent most of adolescence in college and med school, I didn't mind. Nick's quite hot, even though he's also a bit hot-headed and does some stupid things toward the end. Overall I enjoyed the book. It's not a "wow" book, but it also wasn't a stinker. It was nice to take a chance on a book and have it turn out okay. I don't really love a lot of the authors that have the huge fan followings, like Lora Leigh. I enjoy her books, but they really aren't THAT good ALL the time. I still have to read some of the ones of hers that I have.
Well, that's all for now. Two nice, average reads.
