Flat Out Sexy



by Erin McCarthy


Reader's Choice for Spring Reading Challenge


I liked this book quite a bit. Elec was a really good "Stand Up" guy. Tamara was a good hardworking woman of integrity. I understood her insecurities, and respected the way her heart was written. I also liked the way she and Elec both made choices to be up front and honest with each other. I liked the way Ryder gave them a hard time about having "relations" in all of his homes. I liked the secondary characters every one of them. These were people with whom I would want to sit and have dinner. I'd go for Margaritas with Suzanne and Imogen for sure and would definately make sure Ryder and Ty were invited to the barbeque. No doubt. I think that having secondary characters that engage you, is really the hallmark of a good author to me. A mediocre author can write a decent story of a hero/heroine, but a good one can write a great story for h/h and make you fall for a whole community.




I didn't like one particular "love scene" but that's ok. I'm looking forward to Ty's story.

I'm a sucker for younger hero/older heroine story lines and I really enjoyed this one. I'm counting down the days until her next one in this series comes out.

The only scene I didn't like in the book, was the morning after they first met**wink wink** he asked for a specific "Good Luck Kiss". **frowns** That scene didn't feel healty to me. It felt kinda demeaning. It almost ruined it for me, cuz I don't like it when dudes demean. Ya know? But, she'd offered the night before, and seemed kinda turned on, so....
