I quit... He's been fucking everything that moves and she's had to see if. She's all "i'm so unexperienced"

She goes to go on a date and he's all pissy about it when he's been fucking everything. Home about go fuck your self.

Not a bad short story--the characters were likable and fun loving, there were some funny moments in the book, the writing was enjoyable enough, there were some steamy, sexy moments, but...I got the feeling that although this is the first book in the series called Men of S.W.A.T, that somehow I was reading the second book. Characters (mostly cops and Miranda's sister) popped in and it was almost as if I should've known who they were and a little about their pasts, but that wasn't the case. The au ...more

Miranda (Or Randa as everyone calls her) is a curvaceous waitress in her family's diner which the local police always frequent, this is where she knows the town's playboy John. She has always fancied him, but has never wanted to do anything about it, because of his reputation and she didn't want to be another notch on his gun belt.
John has had his eye on Miranda since the minute he saw her, he has hinted to her that they should be together, but she has n

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Randa has lusted after John ever since she started working in her aunt's diner. Pouring her heart and soul into making the diner a success once again, she's hasn't dated anyone in a long time and crossing the friendship line with some of the customers is not something she wants to do, even if Johnny is sex on a stick.

Johnny has a reputation as a serial dater and Randa is looking for a long term romance and she doesn't want t

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is an enjoyable quick read, about friends who realise there should be a whole lot more to their relationship. I love some of the scenes, when they don't get quite what they were expecting! We are thrown into quite a significant community with lots of characters very quickly, which feels a bit rushed - and then have some lovely languid scenes which are delicious. The ending was sudden and unexpected, but as the first

Miranda White needs a date for an upcoming retirement dinner but if she has anything to say about it, it won’t be the notorious bad boy no matter how big of a crush she has on him in this riveting contemporary romance.

John definitely has something to say about it and the reader can’t help but enjoy the delightfully steamy romance as Miranda makes John forget that the one thing a police officer may not have is time. The chemistry is sizzling and the romance is sweet with some excitement thrown in

Swat Team sniper John Stephens has been longing for waitress Miranda White for months. She feels the same way about him. What’s standing in their way? His reputation as a womanizer. As sexy as he is – and as horny as she is- that’s not enough to ignore the fact that she doesn’t want to become just another conquest.

From the first sentence, I was all in. The writing is very good, and the dialogue is very entertaining. Wilder has very vivid descriptions, and I was totally drawn into the story. The
John Stephens, S.W.A.T. team sniper. Miranda White, waitress. They've both secretly have had the hots for each other but he's got a rep for being a lady's man and she doesn't want to be another notch on his gun holster. She needs a date for a upcoming party, and he's none too happy of who she chooses to take. A hot kiss and a pool are all it takes to have her changing her mind.

Short and sweet. That's the prefect description for Tactical Pleasure. I had this book read in a hour and it was quite

3 1/2 STARS!

This was a short, sexy read. There's not a huge storyline, but what's there is fun. Their chemistry is hot!

Miranda White is friendly with all of the cops that hang out at the diner she runs with her sister, but there's something special about John. She's crushed on him since she first met him, but she doesn't want to be another notch on his post and the newest Flavor of the Month on his long list of women.

John Stephens has the hots for Randa as well. He would love to get his hands on

I loved Tactical Pleasure by J C Wilder it had its hooks in me from the first page and I can only hope that there are many more books to read in this series.

Miranda White has had the hots for S.W.A.T sniper John Stevens since the day he walked into her diner. Only problem was so did most of the other women in town and Miranda didn’t want to be just another hook up.

John Stevens is good at his job he doesn’t miss, pity the same thing can’t be said about his personal life. John has a bit of a repu

My Review of Tactical Pleasures by J.C. Wilder
My Rating 3.5 Stars

This story line was awesome, and we were given a BBW in a great short story.
Miranda and Johnny’s story I would have loved to watch the characters grow some and the story progress a bit slower. However I did enjoy their little romp of a whirlwind romance and will look forward to more from this author.

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
I really liked this story, just wish it would have been longer, it's a very short read.

There was so much between Rand and John, but it was a rushed romance, however, it was funny and a really good read. I would have given it a 4, possibly 5 if it would've been longer.
Dec 14, 2011 Lili rated it it was amazing
Very sweet, it's a short story with a happy ever after and some hot sex in the middle.
I liked the characters and want to read more about the other officers.
Of course, since it's a short story, it all was rushed but overall it was good.

Cute story. Likeable characters all around. Sweet and romantic. But too short. Could have been even better. But I still enjoyed it. Hot love scenes too. Love that alpha male!
