Bad Boys In Black Tie (Watson Brothers #3)
Good With His Hands - 4 Stars
How come I didn't know about this series by Lori Foster? Well, I really enjoyed this story, which is # 3 in the Watson Brothers, and believe me I'll go back and read the rest. It was cute, funny, sexy and hot. There's the girl next door, Cassidy, who's a bit of a tomboy, doesn't worry too much about how she dresses or what her hair looks like. She works with, and now lives next door to, hunky and to-die-for hot Pete Watson. T ...more
All feature a hot male, allegedly a bad boy, who clean up well. So much so that in each of them there is at least one scene where they sport a tuxedo, usually with a dangling black tie (as seen on the cover). In only one does it really play a role in the story itself (the second one written by Erin McCarthy).
The first story features a two good fri ...more
Erin McCarthy's story was also simply okay. I didn't care for the heroine and thought she was much too hard and unlikable...and super frigid. Maybe I just can't relate, but she just irritated me.
Morgan Leigh's story is what took a three rating and moved it down. I almost want to rate the bo ...more
Good With His Hands: Lori Foster, next door neighbors Pete Watson and Cassidy McClannahan finally change from a platonic relationship to a more intimate one. Confusion abounds. She thinks she wants a guy who is normally in a suit, he's a casual kind of guy. They find a way to work it out.
Miss Extreme Congeniality: Erin McCarthy, FBI agent CJ White has plenty of personal issues but still is attracted to fellow agent Wyatt Maddock. Wyatt is interested in the standoffish and prickly CJ ...more
Good With His Hands, by Lori Foster
Next door neighbors Pete (Watson, brother to Gil and Sam) and Cassidy are good friends, but nothing more... until Pete decides he wants to mix things up a bit. But can their friendship withstand the heat?
The sex in this one was fairly hot, but the characters were just so-so. I wasn't much moved by Pete's sudden ...more

This story was good. I liked the characters Pete and Cassidy.
Miss Extreme Congenialtiy by Erin McCarthy (1 star)
I liked this story the least. There was no real chemistry between the characters and they weren't believable as a couple.
Last Call by Morgan Leigh (3 stars)
I liked this story the most. It was a fun story although the romance was a bit rushed. What else can you expect from a short story.
Two of these stories avoided that trap, showing the shift from friendship to love; those were enjoyable. The third was harder to take, based on love at first sight and a preponderance of exclamation points.
Good With His Hands by Lori Foster: They are neighbors who are hot for each other, but figure that the other won't want them because they aren't what they are looking for, but hey throw in half a short story full of raunchy sex & it's all good--right?
Miss Extreme Congeniality by Erin McCarthy: They are FBI partners who are hot for each other, but figure the other one won't want them because they aren't what they are looking for, but hey throw in half a short story full ...more
Picked this up at a resale shop for ¢50 and still I feel a bit ripped off. I figured this collection of short stories would be a way to explore some new romance authors and enjoy some compact sexyfuntimes on the cheap. Ah, but cheap is exactly what I got.
The setups are paper-thin and cliche, but even that I could've forgiven if not for the laughable excuse for characters and the cringe-inducing dialog.
Not worth th ...more

Miss Extreme Congeniality - This one didn't do a whole lot for me. I honestly didn't understand why Wyatt would fall for CJ so quickly when she had been nothing but unpleasant to him. It mentions over and over how surly she is at work and how unattractive she dresses yet he can't help but be dying for her to come over. It doesn't make sense.
Pete Watson & Cassidy McClannahan live next door to each other in a codo complex. They both work for a fitness gym. She has a life plan & he is just going through life. He wants her, and she wants him, but they pretend they don't.
They finally sleep together & well... life happens.
This was good. It was a quick read and goes along with her series of the Watson brothers.

Lori Foster - 3 stars. Protected sex. This is a Watson brother story. The youngest, more annoying brother Pete to be exact. He's been friends with Cassidy for about a year, but just friends. Now he's decided he wants to be more. After a lot of hot sex they love each other & get married. The end.
Erin McCarthy - 3 stars. I remember these characters from another anthology, but I can't remember which one. They have a relationship at work where he's ...more
"Good with His Hands" (Watson Brothers, 3)
"Miss Extreme Congeniality" (incorporates characters from Smart Mouth , 1.5?)
Lori Foster's "Good with His Hands" reflects Cassidy McClannahan's abrupt realization that one aspect of her dreams does not mesh with her true self.
This is a cute, insightful story about two people who have taken the time to build a friendship although Cassidy's reaso ...more
speaking in ways normal people would not. I can't even remember an example, but it bothered me. Make sure a real person would say it like that. Say it out loud. Does it sound real?
Men with exclamation points. Just no. Anyone with multiple exclamation points in a book is questionable, but a man? No. Not for me ...more
