Two novellas in one book and FUN with a capital F!

The First Novella "Thief of Hearts" is about an E.R. doctor named Dr. Jared Dean and Kara - who is better known on the streets as The Avenging Angel. They have a chance encounter and their lives become entwined in a screwball "it can only happen in a book" way. Lot's of fun, lots of actual laughing out loud, and just enough heat with the loving to make a girl need a cool drink of water.

On a side note - I love how MaryJanice Davidson will switch...more

Doing It Right by MaryJanice Davidson consists of two stories, Thief of Hearts and Wild Hearts.

Thief of Hearts, the longer story, is about the love match between an ER doctor, Dr. Jared Dean, and the city's so-called The Avenging Angel, Kara. In between fighting and hiding from the mobster Kara had a run-in with, she and Jared were falling in love. Jared fell hopelessly in love with her and he made it known from the beginning while Kara was scared and standoffish. Obviously, by the end of the s...more

2 short stories. Both had potential to be remotely interesting, but as you can tell from the title, the plot gets lost in exchange for sex. (At least the first short story did.) Both short stories tie together because of the characters. I just read it because it's one of the few MJD stories I haven't read. If the second story had had time to develop I might have liked the characters. They were a little unbelievable, but they were at least funny.
I was looking for something light and fluffy to wash out all the rape I've been reading about, and this was not it. Sure, it started out really appealing and fun, and by the time I was clued into just what I was reading, I was pretending I was reading a porn script so I could keep suspending my disbelief.

It's not that the lust stories in this book are unrealistic. People's hormones get the better of them all the time. It's the love aspect injected into the stories that had me raising an eyebrow....more
As with most of MaryJanice's books, I laughed through a good part of both stories in this one. If you need a laugh this book - either story will do that for you. The first one is a cat burgler who has to protect the "hero" because he inadvertantly walks in and sees something that he should not have... the face of a killer - one that no one has lived to tell anyone about.

The second one the D.A.'s sister catches a theif stealing her car, turns the tables on the theif and takes him to her brother t...more
two short stories... the first one was pretty good but the second one? i felt like i was missing pages of my book - it ended really abruptly. all of that to say - ms. davidson is an amazing author and i love her other series. this book was fun and quick but not her best work.
Picked this up because I typically enjoy MaryJanice Davidson's humorous and light writing. While the two stories carried the same light tone that I love, the humor fell rather flat. Davidson's novels always carry scenes that get quite ridiculous but they typically are believable for the plot and characters. This wasn't the case in these two stories. The stories ended up nose-diving into the land of zany corniness after the first few pages and they lost me once that happened.

I think I'll be steer...more

Brava = publisher. Cartoonish, won't read anymore.
Don't buy this book expecting the best, because you will be disappointed. It's not a total let down, because you do get your money's worth of MJ's steamy characters. Dirty filthy smut is not in short supply in this book! But if you're expecting the usual MJ snark found with Betsy, Fred, or the Royals, you will be disappointed.
Your best bet is to A) suspend every ounce of logic you have (reading with one eye closed may help), or B) skip the thin plot and jump right to the naughty bits.
OK so Theif of Hearts was GREAT I love MJD and I have never read a book where I liked the main male character so much I mean Dr Dean was hilarious and sexy to boot. Wild Hearts was a good follow up but I wish it was a novel and not a novella because it was too quick everything happend in like tha spain of minutes but I guess thats why its a novella. Excelent read all in all if you are a fan of MJD or just a fan of laughing ur ass off I would definitly suggegest this book.
Goge (BARRONS) le Moning Maniac,
Story One:

Dr. Jared Dean can hardly believe he's watching the woman of his fantasies beating the crud out of the city's biggest, toughest mobster. Kara never meant for her latest revenge stunt to land the gorgeous doc on a hit list, but there's only one thing to do: guard Dr. Jared's extremely fine bod until she can figure a way out of this mess for both of them.

Story Two:

"messing with the D.A.'s sister is crazy, but.."
The Good: Two MJD romance/erotica stories make up Doing it Right. It's a quick read and the sex is super hot.

The Bad: Unfortunately, the sex is the only thing right about this book. Davidson attempts her well-known style of humor here, but it just doesn't work for the characters. They can't pull off the wit nor the scandalous, ridiculous situations they are thrust into.
The Flooze
The first story, of Kala and Jared, was quick and fun. Infused with MJD's typical sarcastic humor and outrageous situations, it was an enjoyable read. The second, a follow-up on the characters, was amusing, but hastily put together and not very satisfying. It's very short however, and was worth reading for the marvelously droll comments made by an adorable 4 year old.

Hot and way funny! MaryJanice Davidson does it again with her humor and romance combination. Had me all hot and bothered one minute than laughing so hard the next.
Two fun, and connected stories about unexpected love matches, with strong funny women, and hot funny men. Great combo, and fun to read.
This was really 2 different stories. The first was a novella that was actually very good for the type of fluff romance it is. It was an engaging, enjoyable, easy read. The second was a follow up story, which left a lot to be desired. The whole book took less than 2 hours to read.
Cute little quick read, with some laughes and steamy hot scenes, but I wouldn't recommend it if you want a long, sit down kind of read. There are two stories in this book, plot lines descent, but at times I felt like this quirky little book was trying to take its characters to serious.
This author's stand alone books are very hit or miss for me. I made it about 25 pages into the first story before I had to give it up. The story was just a little too over the top for me and I found I couldn't care less what was happening to them. This one just wasn't for me.
Well, it was certainly 'erotica' and the storyline was predictable for the genre. Can't say it was a great read - it was fluffy and and easy book to devour in a few days. Would have been faster but I kept falling asleep!
Meh. I usually like her wackier stuff but Thief of Hearts fell flat for me. Wild Hearts was a little better, but still missed the mark.
I tried to start this one and it sucks. Only in about 1/4 of the way. It's going back to the library.
Bubble gum silliness with sex thrown in, but not as witty as Queen Betsy.
Typical Davidson. Strong female character, lots of sex, easy read, funny.
hahaha I absolutely love this book it kicks ass along with its characters
Some interesting characters and funny writing. Quick good read.
Not bad, I do prefer MJD's paranormal fiction better.
Will never look at a jar of pickles the same again. LOL
