This is a novella introduction to Ruthie Knox's new series that's coming out next year. It's got Ruthie's trademark good humor and fun chemistry, but I far prefer her longer novels because the character development is light in just 100 or so pages. And (this may make me sound like a prude) because of the shortness of this one, there's an extended sex scene that takes up a significant percentage of page time, so there's not a ton of plot, which left it feeling unbalanced, and the conclusion feels extremely rushed.

However, since I am apparently Sarah, Defender of Smut, I will say the sexytimes are very well done and female-positive.

Because I am a Gen Xer, I loved that this was set in 1999, on the cusp of everyone freaking out about Y2K.

We'll post a longer review (probably in tandem with her other early 2013 release) on the blog in Jan. (I'm guessing that Rebeca aka Renegade will like this one more than I did.)

(Disclosure: received for review from the publisher.)
