Review by Water Lily

When opposites attract, they are screwed three ways from Sunday.

Frannie learned the hard way that a McHottie doesn’t always equal marriage material. She’s happy with her vanilla life. She has friends, a career and a double-D-powered vibrator. Then Fate shoves her, literally, into Prince Charming’s lap. His declaration of love at first sight is cute—and spikes her bullcrap meter into the red zone.

She’s more than willing to give in with her body. But she’s barricaded her heart behind castle walls—and permanently welded the gates shut.

Tragedy taught Jinx that time is too precious to waste, so when a series of uncanny coincidences thrusts Frannie into his life, he holds on tight. He knows she thinks he’s several fries short of a Happy Meal, but he’s determined to breach the fortress around her heart and give her a Happily Ever After.

Even if he has to carry her fanny-first into his kingdom.

Warning: Includes jelly shoes, a narcoleptic cat, and meatloaf. The steamy sex scenes may lead to fogged windows and wet panties, so proceed at your own risk. Do not attempt to read without the following items: tissues, napkins for spewed beverages, and a booty call on speed dial.

Jinx (Francis Sullivan) falls in love with Frannie (Frances Sullivan) the first time he sees her. She doesn’t. Of course, he calls her “dollface,” so what does he expect? He’s too hot for his own good and she’s been burned by a hot ex-husband. There’s no way she’s going to fall for his slick lines—and he’s slinging those lines everywhere. He even has the nerve to blurt out the dreaded three words (I love you) when they are about to get naked for the first time. The liar. He’s known her all of an hour and, while Frannie may think it’s fine to hit the sheets, she knows he doesn’t love her. She certainly doesn’t love him.

She will though. But he’s going to have to work at it.

I fell in love with Jinx when he “purchased a plethora of period paraphernalia.” Who wouldn’t? My darling hubby will pick up “the necessities” if he must, but he’d really rather not. When Frannie admits she needs tampons, Jinx gets tampons and pads and Midol and zit cream (she admitted to having a humungous zit) and chocolate and potato chips and tissues and a heating pad and anything else he could think of to make her feel better. Both Frannie and I laughed aloud. I fell in love. Frannie already had, but she was still fighting it.

Jinxed is a fun book that will have you panting and laughing on alternating pages. It’s the perfect steamy read for that weekend at the beach. The passionate love scenes will have you sweating even if the weekend turns cold and rainy.
