I can't believe I'm writing this, but...This "book" would've worked better as a short story.

What glimpses of plot I got from between all the female lead's sexual fantasies and the sex scenes between the aforementioned female lead and her masculine counterpart, the premise was good, the plot was tight and well-written, the characters were nicely developped and well-rounded...There was just too much sex, cloaking everything in a cloud of steamy pheromones.

In short, a pretty decent story crammed in

Sort of a story within a story--a popular fiction writer of cop fiction is stuck--writer's block up to waazoo. Her publisher wants a sex scene between the partners--Tanaka & Shields--and she thinks that would ruin the sexual tension. But her agent and publisher prevail, only she can't seem to get anything down on paper. Add in the mess that her personal life has become and she is in a bad way, personally and professionally. A sexy ex-cop opens a new coffee cafe just a short distance from her apa ...more

Liked it! The sex scenes were numerous and mostly oral, which is unusual in my experience, considering this is a "love story" and not a "lust story". Occasionally, her word choices made me roll my eyes (OMG did she really SAY pocket rocket and Good Golly?!) but they weren't so bothersome or frequent that I couldn't easily overlook them. Sometimes the story would go into several paragraphs about something like author habits that seemed unnecessary, but there were just as many times that I felt li ...more

This short story is so lovely.
pamela has writers block, and just happens to stumble across a coffee place with a really hot owner.
i loved this story, it even ended really well.
i can't tell you everything but what i can tell you is there are bits that confuse reality with fantasy, i had to re read things just to double check what was what. usually having to do that annoys me. but not with this story.
plenty of sex in this book so it's for mature readers only.

Very funny and hot.
The scene on the cover actually happened. Yum.

Review to come later.

TRUDY DOYLE’s idea of a perfect man is a cross between Clive Owen and Anderson Cooper with a little bit of Bill Maher tossed in. Her favorite après tryst scenario is hunkering down with sweetie and some smoked gouda, cheap white zin and any Coen Brothers movie (except the one with the Prince Valiant haircut). She believes that 70% cacao chocolate should qualify for a tax deduction, James Carville ...more
