From the safety of her living room, Arianna Day has been enjoying the sensual maneuvers of the man she's dubbed Sir Sex-a-Lot. Watching her neighbor has fueled more than one of her steamy fantasies, which makes him the perfect candidate to end her bout of celibacy. She's not looking for commitment—she just wants some of what he freely gives.

Too bad seducing Noah Kellerman is more complicated than she thought. Oh, sure, the between-the-sheets—and the on-the-desk and the against-the-wall—action is everything she wants. But their physical closeness seems to have encouraged Noah to get close emotionally. Can Arianna give up being the next woman in his window to be the only woman in his life?

She’s tired of watching him from afar. He’s tired of meaningless sex. What happens when they finally slake their desires with each other? You need to read Made You Look to find out.

Ms. Sobrato writes great stories. When I see one of her books on the shelf, I know I’m in for a treat. Made You Look is one of those treats. The story flows from page to page. You feel for the characters even when you want to smack them upside the head for being stubborn.

Noah is an exhibitionist who makes love with the curtains open. Unbeknownst to him, his neighbor across the street watches what's going on. She’s even given him a nickname. And she wants in on what he’s got to offer. Now I realize the premise sounds a little kinky and narcissistic so far. Noah is a tad full of himself, but what man isn’t? You still love him as you realize he’s just another soul looking for his mate.

I like Arianna, though she comes across a bit snippy at times. She’s so bent on sticking with the no strings attached relationship, she doesn’t see what’s right in front of her. She’s independent and knows what she wants, but voicing her desire for Noah when she’s not horizontal is hard. Fact is, it’s tough to admit your feelings and the reader can easily relate to her problem.

The love scenes in this story sizzle. You’ll want to check your fingers for burns as you turn the pages. You'll feel the passion as the characters do and it’s really beautiful and skillfully written.

If you want a read that will stay with you after the last page, then you need to read Made You Look.
