***I voluntarily reviewed this book for Katsindiebookblog, and I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book.*** I can honestly say I was surprised when I read this story. I was expecting something totally different after I saw what the title was. However, within Chapter 2, I believe, I was able to figure out why it was named this. Now the cover, not a huge fan of it, but not something I would take off points for. All in all it was a really great mystery, e ...more

This is my first read by Ms. Lemons. It most certainly will not be my last. I found the book intriguing.

We meet Daisy Sinclair, an independent woman - working as a paralegal investigator for a solid law firm. She is commitment phobic, has a best friend with benefits and thinks that her world is perfect. Then her boss hires a Navy Seal/retired detective to help investigate and help exonerate a high profile client on a double count of murder. Enter in what is first a chance meeting in a bar, Warre

“Getting Him Off Quickly” is a great beginning for a new indie author, C R Lemons. I took a moment to read the author bio and can see that she may have modeled Daisy, the female protagonist, a bit after herself. If nothing else she certainly pulled from her years of paralegal experience to write this Mysterotica. The writing style is quite simplistic, straightforward and to the point. I believe that direct style actually helped me in visualizing the scenes. Daisy is both likable and relatable fr ...more

A cocky and creative title only hints at what the rest of this story has to offer. Daisy and Cole make for an incredibly interesting pair as far as personality, sexual chemistry, and overall enjoyment are concerned. Beyond the endless entertainment of them butting heads and their erotic escapades, a murder mystery unravels, adding layers of depth to an otherwise very sexy story. Combined, the elements of this book create a read that is ‘un-put-downable.’ You can also tell that C.R. Lemons has so ...more

So, this is supposed to be an erotic romance with mystery tied in..and on the erotic part, the story will fulfill your relationship goal as a reader, but the mystery fell a bit flat and didn’t keep my interested. The narration and editing needed to be a bit better as well. All in all, the romance was good but the rest of it needs work. Will I read what comes next? Absolutely, I am hoping that the writing is improved as she writes more!

This book was smokin Hot mixed in with a mystery. I absolutely loved Daisy. She is spitfire for sure. I wonder what kind of spell she had to make all these fall for her. She had Morgan, who she dated years ago, Mac who was her best friend with benefits and finally Warren, the hot inspector/retired detective that goes all alpha with. Warren isn't happy with all the attention Daisy gets and makes it known multiple times that she is his. Daisy is very good at her job. She gets very much involved an ...more

Rating: 3.5*

So the plot was a good one: Paralegal Daisy and Investigator Warren work to clear their client of a murder charge whilst fighting their attraction to each other.

Daisy was a character that has no problems making male friends and using her sexuality to get what she wants, which causes a lot of tension. It was full of twists and turns. However, the writing didn't always flow and felt it was more factual than creating atmosphere with words. I found the language around the bedroom scenes

I really wanted to love this story, but I only liked it. It had a great plot that kept me guessing throughout the entirety of the story, but the erotic side of this book put me off. Also, this author didn't use contractions... and to be honest I think that is what truly ruined the book for me. It had so so much potential, but when you are constantly trying to make it sound right in your head it really takes away from the story as a whole. If this book was edited again, to remove all of the "cann ...more

Daisy is a hard working paralegal who avoids long term commitment in relationships at any cost. She is currently in a friends with benefits type of relationship with Mac. At least until she meets the new guy, the firm's new private investigator, Warren. The relationship between Daisy and Warren is hot. Not a single page of the book did not have a moment where it did not hold my attention. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a great romance read!

In this first book from a new indie author, I found the story fascinating with a nice balance between the solving of a mystery while including several scenes of growing sexual tension between the main characters. I did find that the writing style was a bit too straight forward and I struggled with the 'flowery' descriptions, I was surprised that I hadn't figured out who the 'bad' guys were until near the very end. That is predominately why I give this book 5 stars. All to often, I can figure out ...more

Paralegal Daisy Sinclair is highly allergic to commitment, and she never mixes business with pleasure. She works hard, and plays even harder, but all of that is put to the test with the new employee added to the firm. Daisy works for a very well known criminal defense attorney, and when he brings in Warren Cole to help her investigate the high profile client who is being charged with a double murder, her rule becomes blurred. The more time she spends with the sexy 6" 5' former Navy Seal/homicide ...more

C.R. Lemons is the best writer I know. I am one of those annoying readers who actively searches for plot holes. I have yet to find a single one in any of her novels.

So, let's get to my review... I love this book. Daisy is a strong leading lady and I love that. She goes after what she wants even if she doesn't always know what it is right away. She is always growing as a character. The erotic scenes are hot and playful...and classy. C.R. Lemons doesn't make the mistake of compromising her writin

Not the best book I've read..... But saying that they story line is good it's just the way it's written,
It feels like it's ment to be a diary but it jumps as if it's happening right now rather than what's happened during the days .

Detective story with lots of erotic overtones

Conflicted emotions and lust then get in the way of a murder investigation into a lawyer being accused of killing his wife and her lover, his law partner.

Getting Him Off Quickly is a romantic, fun, loyal, energetic and overwhelming book to read. C.R. Lemons knows just how to get her readers excited about the chapters as they come along in the book. The love triangle between Daisy, Warren and Mac is interesting to say the least and it couldn't have been better written. The couple who ended up together in the end is who every reader should be voting for. Learning who the killer was and who had a part in it was a good cliffhanger and kept the

What a great cross-genre book! I'm sure the author's expertise as a paralegal brought a very realistic feel to this story but either way, it was a great book.

Daisy is a very easygoing likable character who is confident in her job as a paralegal and confident about what she wants from men. She's met her match with with Warren, a sexy ex-cop now working with her at the law firm.

I can't say enough good things about this book. The mystery story by itself is just so compelling and well-plotted and w

Getting Him Off Quickly was a great start to a series. I was hooked from the first pages. I loved the fast pace of the story and the dimensions of the characters. Daisy is such a great character! And Warren such a good complement to her. I was glad of the complexities of their relationship...it was entertaining. The only downside, which is why it was a 4 star instead of 5 stars was the editing of words and the overuse of 'flower' and 'rod'. It is still a very enjoyable book and I look forward to ...more

I received an ARC for my honest review.
This first book, is such a great story. Its more than just a boy meets girl story. There is a powerful professional women who is an important pat of law office. I love when we get a strong female lead, and she's not perfect. She gets herself into some tough situations that we can all relate too. Great first story, that had me grabbing book 2 as soon as I was done.

This is the fist narrative book I've read and still not sure what I think about this type of book.. The story line is great but didn't like some of the word choices this author used.. Maybe I am not a delicate flower and I don't like men and woman's genitals referred to as rods or flowers.. Use the terms that are appropriate for naming these parts!!!

Oh my, Daisy and Warren have one heck of a story! Daisy is a paralegal that is commitment phobic, in a friends with benefits relationship. In walks Warren, the sexy new investigator for the firm. What follows is a sexually charged battle of wills. Add that to the double homicide that they are trying to solve and you have one thrill ride of a book!
