Phenomenal book!:)

I am glad I read these wonderful books :)

Pretty generic read, here - it was fun, but nothing special. The premise was entertaining, the ending was rather sweet, the dialogue and banter was sometimes fun (if not all that witty), but it pretty much lived up to my expectations of being a cheap, trashy romance novel that I could read while brain dead and still mildly enjoy.

The smut was pretty tame and boring, the guy was spouting psychobabble NO guy would ever say, let alone the lead "bad boy," and it's not something I'll read a second tim

Kate, Chloe, and Julia are best friends, co-workers, and life-long neighbors. Each has a story and the author carries their friendship through each book, often with e-mails at the beginning of the chapters.

This is the third book in the Sexy trilogy. They are entertaining and quick reads. Each book has sexy men and women who really don't know who they are, but it is enjoyable finding out who they can be.

Julia is the rich and wild daughter of the owner of KTEX TV, at least she is until he dies su

This was like 3.5 stars. Only because it took me 2/3 of the way through the book to finally get into it. The last 1/3 of the book was 5 stars for me! There was a huge twist that took me by surprise and the ending was all kinds of Awwww sweetness :)

The book was very interesting and good to see how Julia resist the bad boy of Ben. Totally sexy book.

This series gets better and better, this book is the best in the Sexy series, which I really enjoyed reading. Consistent with the previous books, the same theme about changing and fear of attachments revolve around the story, but because of the events and the well-written plot, the is the most interesting. I can't even begin to describe the witty and humorous banter Julia and Ben exchanged. Excellent character development, although Julia is the focus of the story, picking up where she left off, ...more

This was probably my least favorite of the three books, and I'd rate it closer to 2.75.

Julia is the orphaned daughter of an absentee, daredevil of a father. She tried to keep his TV station running without help after his death, but during the last book, his expenditures were too much for her to handle. This book opens with her trying to reinvent herself - not just her career, but her personality and warddrobe.

It also opens with Sterling's brother Ben (Sterling the hero of the last book) being sh

Perfect ending to the series! This book was about Julia and Ben. She is trying to get her life back together after she had to sell her station to cover all of her father's debts. She decides she needs a whole makeover for her life starting with herself. She swears off tight clothes, her wild ways and most importantly bad boys.

Ben wants nothing more than to find the man who killed his partner. Unfortunately, he gets laid up with an injury and the only person that has time to help him get better i
Just like in "Sinfully Sexy", a Reality-TV-Show needs to be produced so that the main protagonist - here it is Julia - can save her job. The author obviously couldn't think of any other way to integrate a 'rival in love' into the story. Although rival is not the correct label, since this "Primal Guy" is coming nowhere near Julia. In contrast to Ben, who is very much interested in Julia and temporarily lives in her house while recovering from a bullet wound. But of course he doesn't want a relati ...more
Quick, cute, easy read (and series). I have found this series to be light with likable characters. Both Julia and Ben were "players", they liked to get jiggy and had great sexual appeal to the opposite sex- I find this unusual, most books it is one or the other. As in some of her other books, I find the author should give into the sexual chemistry between H&h earlier in the book. The H&h have a slight hook up, which is very, very hot scene under a desk, and then I don't feel the book doe ...more

The women of KTEX Julia Boudreaux station owner and her two best friends Kate Bloom, Anchorwoman and Chloe Sinclair, station manager. El Paso Texas will never be the same.

Simply Sexy (Sexy #3) – Can bad-girl Julia Boudreaux turn her life around and start over? Why oh why is she drawn to those bad boys and how is she to be good when the baddest bad boy of them all Ben Prescott is staying in her guestroom?

Going in I thought this was just going to be a light fluffy romantic escape. Which isn't a ba

Dorința de schimbare sau poate dorința de a descoperi cine ești?

”Ea își lăsă inima să explodeze și – pentru prima dată – înțelese ceva. Ceva despre dragoste și dăruire, despre a-l înțelege pe cel de lângă tine până în străfundurile ființei lui.”

The last of the trilogy!!! I actually think I like this one the best. There's more substance to this story than in the two previous books. It brings together a bad boy, Ben Prescott (Brother of Sterling, book 2) with a girl who isn't intimidated by his act, Julia Boudreaux. She's just sold her father's business but wants to prove that she can hold her own as a producer under a new, young station manager who basically wants her gone. To top it off, she's got to take care of Ben Prescott in his ho ...more

This is the 3rd book in the series and if you haven't read the first two I would start with those! If read in order they are great books! It truly is a wonderful series! In this one is the story of the 3rd of the group of friends! Julia is starting over and you get to be there from the start! In the process of starting over she falls in love! It is a great story with lots of ups and downs! Iecommend all 3 books in this series!

This last book in a series about three friends is a wonderful read full of promise and figuring out who you are. Sometimes change is not what a woman needs, sometimes it is a bad boy.

Hoffentlich lag es nur an der Übersetzung, dass mich die Qualität dieses Buchs so enttäuscht hat. Langweilige Story und hölzerne Dialoge.
