Rugged Dino Angelis, navy captain and special-ops agent, has the family Sight. But even that couldn't have prepared him for his hungry reaction to Cat McGuire—toy-store owner, smuggling-ring suspect…and his new charge.

Only, Dino can't believe the sexy woman under his protection is a crook. Not when she can plant a kiss hot enough to melt all his good intentions….

For Cat, Christmas is always a hectic season. But this year she's agreed to a fake engagement, too, just to keep the family peace. It wouldn't be so bad, if only Cat could keep her hands off her new fiancĂ©. After all, he's strong, he's sexy…he's the perfect boy toy. Or he is—until Cat discovers she's just another one of his assignments….

She’s a toy store owner who wants to make children’s dreams come true through her toys. He’s a Navy special ops agent in search of cocaine smugglers and not a certain sexy toy storeowner. Well, that is until he sees her and she asks, why not Come Toy with Me?

Talk about a steamy novel! Ms. Summers writes sexy with ease, but makes it sensual not blatant. Each searing glance shared between Dino and Cat made the reader feel their passion. I liked that Cat was clearly capable of taking care of herself and allowing Dino to step in wasn’t relinquishing control. The plot was nice and tight as well. Someone’s smuggling cocaine through her store, but no one’s sure who it is. The villain had a clear portion of the story, but it wasn’t until the thrilling climax that the person was revealed. Well written.

My favorite part was when Cat convinced the shopper who couldn’t live without a second doll that maybe a second bridal doll would work. She showed concern for a harried shopper who only wanted to make the children smile and the children who simply wanted a nice toy for Christmas. That showed a sweet human side of the businesswoman that personified who she was.

If you’re looking for a sensual novel with a sexy alpha male and a smart businesswoman heroine, then grab a copy of Come Toy with Me. You won’t regret the ride! I give this novel 4.5 books.
