Catch a Mate
Cute, but a little too chick lit for my tastes in spots. Also it takes place in a laughably short amount of time (three or four days, I believe) and that made it very unbelievable that these two had gone from being adversaries to in love forever.
I think my main annoyance with the book is the central couple, i just couldn't see how they could come to a happy ending in such a short space of time, and also the arguing between them is descriped as like thier foreplay which I can totally be on board with, I just didn't think it was particually realistic in this bo ...more
ATRAPA A TU PAREJA - GENA SHOWALTER
Jillian Greene siempre es atrapada en el acto -¡es su trabajo! Trabajando en Atrapa a Tu Pareja, a Jillian le pagaban recelosas esposas para sonreír, coquetear y probar que no se puede confiar en el sexo opuesto. ¿Su única regla básica? Nada de sexo. Hasta que un magnífico-electrizante hombre entra en…
Marcus Brody acaba de ser contratado como señuelo para probar la fidelidad femenina. Lo último que Jillian necesita es un socio… especialmente ...more
Primer libro de Gena Showalter que leo que no sea de tipo fantástico o paranormal y debo decir que me ha gustado. No es que tenga nada fuera de lo normal que lo diferencie de otras novelas pero creo que gracias a la forma de ...more
Anyway, the main characters are hilarious and make one of the most sizzling love-hate relationships. Jillian is a very opinionated man-hater, while Marcus is a woman-hater, in the sense that neither trust the opposite sex. Both of them work as 'bai ...more
Me gustó mucho la forma en la que se contó la histaria de los personajes desde diferentes puntos de vista y como se cubrieron todos los posibles angulos sin dejar espacios vacios y manteniendo siempre la historia de forma fluida y atrayente al lector.
The fact that the H/HR fall in love in the span of a few days is just unrealistic to me especially in a contemporary setting. Sorry don't buy it. It was rushed a ...more
The main characters are engaging with their love you-hate you-kiss me senseless-I'll stab you in your sleep relationship. True that one of the big issues of this book is about their building se ...more
Cheating is a bitch. It's everywhere.
I liked the romance but there was a lot of hate... I actually hated him at some point. I didn't like that.
Whatever, it was okay. (So hot)
If you like your romantic comedy with vicious verbal battles and wicked word wars between the leads, then look no further than Showalter's Catch a Mate. Jillian and Marcus have both been hurt in the past by unfaithful people and they both work in the slightly shady world of disclosure, where they act as bait to lure the spouses and lovers of suspicious wives, husbands, boyfriends, and girlfriends who think their significant other is cheating on them. While their ...more
But I was always hesitant to read any other type of romance books other than paranormal. I don't really have a problem with ot ...more
Jillian doesn't trust men. She watched her dad cheat on her mom and then got a job catching cheating husbands and boyfriends. So, when Marcus becomes her partner at work and she can't stop fantasizing about him, she's not sure what to do if she can't trust herself.
I'm having trouble putting my thoughts about this book into words. I found the plot interesting, but I think it's the characters that ruined this book for me. Gena Showalter has a good concept by starting with a company t ...more
Jillian Greene works for a company who has the dirty job of discovering the fidelity of spouses and significant others for ladies who just want to know if they're being ...more
Quindi ho iniziato a leggere Audaci fantasie con certe aspettative, che sono state – purtroppo – in gran parte deluse. Credo che questo dipenda da due fattori.
In primis, le battute di spirito. La Showalter ne è maestra, ma qui le ho trovate trite e ritrite e tutte in linea con Gli uomini sono tutti maiali. Alcune sono divertenti (soprattutto quelle che se ...more
Jillian works for Catch a Mate which is a service women go to basically catch their mate trying to cheat on them. Jillian loves to work there because she is in essence a true man ...more
I found the main character to be an idiot who's supposed to be a cynic career woman but is instead a weak-willed vapid nymph who thinks with her panties and the hero is supposed to be an alpha businessman with hidden depths who is instead a complete assh*** who acts like a teenager in post prom heat, is begging for workplace harrassment case and has all the depth of a kiddie pool.
I tried to like this b ...more
For every chapter, there was a really funny quote. The quotes itself made me pause because I just had to laugh out really loud.
This is the first book of Gena Showalter that I tried outside the Lords of the Underworld series, and I can say that this book is pretty entertaining.
Jillian Greene is "bait". She is working for an agency which captures husbands philandering to show the wives, to prove that men cannot be trusted. Jillian has been working hard a ...more
Okay, so this is my first time reading a contemporary romance from Gena Showalter, I normally read her paranormal stuff. I must say I was really surprised. In a good way. No, in a great way. I loved every minute of this book. I absolutely loved Jillian, but you know how I am about strong, witty, female leads. Even the male lead character was just as strong and witty, making the sexual chemistry off the charts. Nothing like heated arguments and then even more heated love scenes to follow it up wi...more

My only complaint/wish is that Jillian’s brother Brent and Georgia would have gotten their own book. I would have liked to see them with a longer story to their happy ending.
Ame la idea tan original del libro, y
amé completamente a Marcus.
Pero, mi única pega es el tiempo en el que
'se enamoran' los protagonistas, solo pasan dos
días y es como: 'Dios, la amo es el amor de mi vida.'
Eso me contradijo un poco, pero la trama, los diálogos,
todo eso, lo amé. Y sobre todo los títulos, todos me hacían
reír. Fantástico libro.
