This one didn't really hit the usual Lacey Alexander mark for me.

This is probably a bit laughable seeing how smutty the lovely Lacey's stories are but it was a bit too skanky for me. Hmmm, on second thought, no it wasn't really skanky, it was probably just that the 10% of actual story line wasn't loving enough to pull off a happily every after for me.

Gees I'm talking some shizit right now.

Ok, putting it out there in a completely jumbled ramble - there was a huge amount of sex, hot as hell as

Toni Blake (aka Lacey Alexander) is one of my favorite romance writers, but this story didn't have quite enough plot for me. The sex was hot, but as with Lynda, it needs the context of a relationship for me to really care. If I'd felt more for the couple, it would have been a more enjoyable read.
3.5 stars!
For those who've read Lacey Alexander's "Hot in the City" series, we remember Lynda, Liz's neighbor who told her to just go for it and introduced her to the hot P.I. Jack. It's now Lynda's story and I have to admit I was expecting something longer, and that there are more sex scenes but it was compressed just right.

Lynda is a really uninhibited woman after her divorce and she engages in hedonistic activities, male, female, doesn't matter as long as there's sex involved, like been there done that

Shelves: didn-t-finish
A couple that dont talk to each other - despite numerous opportunities -- turns me off, and makes me sceptical. And she settles? I wanted to enjoy this, naughty sex and lingerie? Could it be better? but i couldnt finish it. Might have been her going on and on about her "wild" life before, i dont know. ...more
i don't care for f/f/m stories, so this rather ruined this novella for me. since it was free, i don't feel too badly!

I read the Hot in the City trilogy first (French Quarter, Sin City, and Key West). I was somewhat disappointed with Lynda's Lace being considerably shorter.

Bueno es ciertamente bien erótico,pero erótico en el sentido de sexo fuerte.Porque en muchas ocaciones llamamos erótico a muchos látigos,esposas y demás casos sadomasoquistas.En este caso,lo hay pero la historia no gira en torno a ello.

Lynda se frustro mucho cuando su matrimonio duro tan poco tiempo y por el cual no fue feliz,así que se dedico a disfrutar del gran sexo de la vida con todo el que pudiera hasta que conoce a Jordan que se enamoro de el inmediatamente y por el trata de cambiar su es

Lynda’s Lace is book 1 of City Heat, by Lacey Alexander which has been sitting on my tablet since October of 2011, unread. What’s up with that??!

At the start, I was puzzled by two sentences.
”Wishing for fun.”
"Wishing for sex.”

To me, sex is fun, so I would have said that first, and could have skipped the fun wish. Lynda seemed to have her wishes come true after divorcing her smarmy cheating husband. She became a connoisseur of fun in the Big Easy, a very fun place to be, including animal fun, e

Lynda's Lace is my first novel read by Lacey Alexander, and also my first novel in this genre. It's a far departure from what my typical book would look like and that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

True enough as said by others, this novel takes place on a whole other dimension: where fantasies exist, no one holds grudges and the air is light and fluffy. Not everything read was believable. But who doesn't need to whisked away into a rose-coloured-glasses world every once in a while?

Lynda Phelps is the Sex Queen of New Orleans, but she’s scared to let her wild, adventurous nature out to play with her boyfriend. He sees her as a precious treasure that should be adorned with sexy lace, when she would prefer leather.

Since she’s scared he’ll thinking less of her, she keeps her kinky side locked up tight. After all, the sex that they do have is really good, just…boring.

He senses that she’s holding something back and tries his best to get her to let loose and confide in him. But…

Lynda's Lace

Jordan is a traditional man, who didn't realize he had a kinky side until he met Lynda. Lynda has gained the experience of being a kinky lover over the last twelve years. A bad divorce with a cheating husband will do that to a girl. Lynda is really into Jordan, but is afraid to show her true self to him, for fear he won't love this side of her. Jordan plans a night she will never forget, when she confesses how much she loves this life, he feels betrayed that she didn't trust him and

This was a good read. It was nice to read Lynda's story (Liz's best friend from French Quarter), although Lynda's tale started in the middle (i.e. she was already in a relationship with Jordan when the book began). I wanted to see her meeting Jordan and observe their relationship growing instead of coming in with them already together. That being said, I enjoyed the book and will read book #2 in the City Heat series. There is one M/F/F scene, but other than that, this is a one-on-one M/F oriente ...more

I don't ever know how to rate books like this. I go into them for a "quickie" read and honestly, don't really expect much. This was sometimes pretty hot and often really skanky. Not much plot, but again, I was not expecting something deep and meaningful. I wanted these characters, who said they loved each other, to just talk about what they wanted out of their relationship. Took too long to be themselves. It was a freebie, so that's a good thing.

This is erotica how I like it: hot but with a bit of a plot. This book wasn't long so the conflict wasn't protracted. The heroine knew she was being an idiot by not telling the hero that she wanted different things but she couldn't help herself anyway (I know I've been there several times.) Also, I liked that for a change, the heroine was the one who was into kinky stuff and the hero was the 'newbie' who had to learn.
The sex was okay, but mostly I couldn't get over what dumbasses these characters were. Lynda: When your boyfriend asks you flat out what your fantasies are, you should, y'know, consider answering him honestly. And Jordan: If you want to introduce kink in your sex life, sending your bisexual coworker (and ex!) over to seduce your girlfriend is a pretty insane opening gambit.

This book keeps you guessing as to what happens next. Your in for a pleasant surprise. Great story and lots of loving! You will hardly be able to wait for what happens in the end.

Wow--this book was so hot I thought the pages were going to catch fire! This is a short, sexy love story that shows how a person's perceptions can change as they fall in love. This is my first Lacey Alexander book, and I look forward to reading more!

Don't really have much to say about this book. It was an ok read. The characters were somewhat like-able, but definitely not any of my favorites.

Had some pretty steamy scenes and if you like books with more girlie bits than boy bits, you might enjoy it.
Jamie ~ Bad Boy Inspector
Wow this book was definitely HOT!!! Even though it was short it had a good plot and I loved the characters. This was only my second Lacey Alexander book so I was not sure what to expect but it was great. I will be reading more of her books very soon.

Smoking hott, nice reasonable read.

XXX Romance! This was a good read, but be warned about the sex in it. Other than that I loved it.

The story was a little slow to develop for me. However, the steamy scenes weren't lacking in my eye. I was disappointed however tgat it was Jordan making ammends in the end instead of Lynda.
a little short..
