Drop Dead Sexy
Not one square in Trope Bingo is filled out in this book. That takes some doing!
This book is probably up high on my list of all time weirdest things I've read. It should just be a smutty romance, but everything hap ...more
“If you had to put my love life into a genre, it would probably be horror. By the same token, I’m not even sure that the master of scary shit, Stephen King, could adequately express it on paper.”
What a hilarious book!!!!
Olivia Sullivan is her home town’s Coroner. She really hasn’t been lucky in the sex department. Her first attempt with her high school boyfriend ended quite badly when it became apparent he had a latex allergy and his penis ended up looking like a latex covered eggplant. O...more
Olivia just wants to finally find romance and a relationship. But being a mortician / coroner and having a quite…unusual love past doesn’t help her case.
One night she decides to just go to a bar and have one night-stand, and she does just that, but it’s so out of character to her that she just runs away the next morning.
But when a body appears the next day and she’s the official coroner for the case, the agent responsible for the investigation is Catcher, her one-night stand gu ...more
'Drop Dead Sexy' was…well sexy, but also funny as hell and ohh so very sassy. Katie Ashley delivered a very entertaining story that made me laugh out loud and fell in love with our two main characters from the moment I met them. While I didn’t fully loved this one, I can totally say that I enjoyed this author’s writing and sense of humor and I’m looking forward to try her other upcoming books.

Attempt number one with her first love ended barely before it got started with a horrific latex allergy hospitalization
Attempt number two had him coming and then going with an undiagnosed heart condition.
As things start to heat up between them, the body count starts to rise, and they’re led on a wild goose chase from back woods mountain Nudist Colonies to altercations with the Dixie Mafia
I'm in love with this book alr ...more
I love Katie Ashley! So very much!
I loved the characters! Sexy smart! Yes they are one of my faves!!!
But the story was not 100% my kind of story. Yes I laughed a lot, yes I liked how fast the love story developed but it wasn't one of my favorites.
I will not reread this book. :/
I do love the proposition, I've read it several times since.

Katie Ashley drops a sexy, fun, smart, and sassy romantic comedy!!!! Ms. Ashley will have readers rolling in laughter as we tag along Olivia Sullivan as she tries to remove the cobwebs of her lady bits with the help of a drop dead gorgeous investigator who is quite the catch.

It started out very fun. I had great expectations, it just fell a little short.
So, Liv. Poor lady didn't have the best of luck in the sex department. First try - guy ends up in the hospital with severe latex allergy. Second try - guy ends up dead on top of her. Yikes! Add to that her being raised in the funeral home and you see how she could be not the most dateable person in town. Also she's a coroner, so yeah.
If you had to put my love life into a genre, it would probably be horror. B ...more
Speaking of miracles ,while I can't call it unique, heroines plight of getting the cobwebs cleared down there was quite funny. She didn't give the pathetic poor me vibes. I genuinely felt for her and wanted her to have her miracle.
Other than the romance and diddling, the ...more
Seriously, I think this was my first by Katie Ashley even though she's on my TBR multiple times and I already owned a few of these. I don't know what I was waiting for. She infused humor and mystery into this romance.
What started out as a one stand between Oliv ...more
Drop Dead Sexy by Katie Ashley
Romantic Comedy Standalone
What a fun read! I have always really loved Katie Ashley's writing. The perfect combination of sweet and sexy that I read with a smile on my face. Well Drop Dead Sexy is all that plus super funny! And it's certainly unique. I mean how many times have you read about a female mortician? If you have read the Janet Evanovich books, these remind me a little of them, just a whole lot sexier and more southern.

Overall Opinion: This started out excellent, but once it started focusing on the investigation more than the relationship -- it lost me. I have issues with suspenseful romances for this exact reason. I really liked their banter and overall chemistry on their first night together, but after they started working together I felt like it fizzled out. Even their feelings turning into love I didn't feel or get (other than the fact they had hot sex)...it very well likely is my own personal iss ...more
“Call me kinky, but I’ve always wanted a man to tie me up”The quirky blurb has been up for three years. The tempting cover was revealed two years ago. So it's safe to say Drop Dead Sexy is a really, really long awaited book. I've been looking forward to reading it too and luckily I'm not disappointed at all.

~ 5 Catcher and Liv Bug Star ~
What an amazingly funny and sexy read!! This book was so different from other Katie Ashley books, but still had what we love about a Katie Ashley book.
This book had a little bit of everything in it. There was humor, love, sex, mystery and suspense and also a totally swoony Hero. What more could you ask for from a 5 star read. This is Katie Ashley's debut into the Romantic Comedy styl ...more
I LOVE romantic comedy and I am a fan of Katie Ashley’s other books so I was very excited to get a chance to read this book. Unfortunately, for me this story fell a little flat and left me with a slight sour taste in my mouth. The premise is great but the execution had me wanting more and curious why the book took certain directions.
‘Can’t do this now. Talk 2 u later I furiously typed. Fine. But wear a skirt. I wanna fing ...more

I have been looking forward to reading Drop Dead Sexy for a while now. The synopsis was cute and quirky and made me smile.
Now that I have finished it, I liked it, but I didn't love it.
I absolutely adored the first 30%. I laughed out loud, couldn't get enough of our leading lady Olivia. I loved that she didn't have the run of the mill job, that her relationships had literally been killer. I loved she was pulling up her big girls pants and was putting herself out t ...more

Drop Dead Sexy wasn't just about Catcher and Olivia. It was an action packed, wild goose chase.
The phrases that Olivia would say when she went deep into her head were so funny. It was like standing there in her brain while she said them. I knew everything and it was like going back to high school/college days.
What is funny is that Catcher and Olivia met before they official met. It was like watching that very first episode of Grey's Anatomy wh ...more
