*X-rated* Absolutely did not expect the amount of adult material in this one compared to the other Bookshot Flames I've read. This book is extremely predictable, but also an intriguing page turner for at least the first 100 pages. Best character development I've come across in Bookshots so far.

A steamy book! Jasper has asked Annie to marry him but she keeps putting him off by saying marriage ruins the romance in a relationship. She loves Jasper but finds herself attracted to a new client as she tries to find him the perfect house. Then she learns that Dave is Jasper’s old love and worries that he might leave her for Dave. Jasper tells her he loves her and Dave. Dave still loves Jasper and is strongly attracted to Annie. Has anyone considered a threesome?

A mixed-up group. Annie is

Extremely hot, sexy read.

I'm a big fan of HelenKay Dimon, and I've never read James Patterson but I know a few people who swear by his books. I'm skeptical of his foray into romance. There's no question the guy can sell books, but I feel like the (mostly) women writing in the genre don't need help from a dude outside of it.

My takeaway feeling after reading this was MEH. The plot has great potential, but it felt like it was not a good fit for an abbreviated read.

Maybe this would satisfy Patterson fans, but I think

I really loved the character Jasper, and all three characters were complicated considering this is a bookshot. But even though it started fast and hot, it ended up falling short in the end and left me unsatisfied.

Excellent character development in a bookshot (of sorts) without a lot of excess baggage. Kudos to the author and her editor. Gracious treatment of alternate lifestyles without being preachy.

The characters situation confuses me n the underlying message the author is non-subtlety conveying.
