Wealthy Assistant D.A. Logan Montgomery needs to ruin his reputation — fast! That's the only way he'll be able to convince his father that he's not cut out to follow the family tradition of going into politics. His plan? To indulge in a very public fling with a woman whose family is a scandal in itself. It should have been the perfect solution . . . . Only, the more time Logan spends with Catherine Luck, the more he realizes he'd give up his reputation—and everything else—for just one night in her bed.
He wants a fling. She wants a fling. What happens when he decides she’s more than a one night stand? That’s Simply Scandalous!
Carly Phillips writes fun, breezy books made for a lazy summer afternoon. The characters are original and unique. You become engrossed in their world and want them to get the happily ever after they desire. This book delivers.
Logan’s an assistant district attorney who just wants a good time to dirty his name. Catherine, aka Cat, is the niece of a former brother owner. Perfect... or is it? She’s a well-respected, up-and-coming caterer with trust issues. She possesses a bubbly sense of humor and a bright smile that draws him like a moth to a flame. How can he walk away? Then again, how can she not let him into her life?
I like that the characters have issues. Real people aren’t perfect and neither are Logan and Cat. She’s afraid he’ll walk away and he’s afraid that if he walks away, he’ll miss out on his soul mate. I also liked the meddling parent angle. The reader can identify with a force, whether a parent or a friend who doesn’t want a relationship to work. It’s a stressor and something that can be difficult to overcome.
The love scenes in this book are filled with passion. Even when Cat and Logan are spatting, you can feel the mutual admiration and love.
If you want a read for a rainy afternoon or a quiet night, then Simply Scandalous is the book for you. I give this book 4 ½ books.
