What do women want? Newspaperman Colin Lyons needs to figure it out—fast! Because advice columnist Rina Lowell is waging a sexual campaign against him that he can't withstand for long. Not that he wants to…. Rina is as irresistible to him as her column is to her readers. The problem? The newspaper's in the red, and all fluff pieces have to be cut. Still, faced with Rina's seductive powers of persuasion, Colin can't resist taking her to bed. Little does she guess he's about to put her out of a job, too….
Carly Phillips writes fun, sexy stories filled with characters the reader can relate to. Her plots are believable and riddled with real world situations, even when she writes exotic. You can’t help but root for the characters to get their happy endings and for everyone to have a bit of understanding.
Rina makes a great heroine because she’s her own woman, yet she’s willing to change – not for a man, but to make herself happy. We all could use a bit of her advice. Be yourself and happiness will find you. Allow your heart to get broken because nothing is permanent. Strong stuff, but written in a way that draws the reader in.
Colin, though he comes off as a bit of a sex-starved jerk, yet it’s the fact that he really doesn’t want to be that way that makes the reader feel for him. You want to fix his issues and reassure him. His transition through the story proves that anything is possible. Plus it never hurts that he’s darn sexy with or without his attitude.
If you want a fun story that will make you laugh, cry, and never forget the characters, then you want Simply Sexy. I’m adding this story to my keeper shelf. I give this book 5 books.
