~Simply Sinful~

by Carly Phillips

Heroine: voluptuous

       

          If a shapely woman is running a "school for socially awkward men", surely it must be a front for a more lascivious and illegal business.  After all, sex is what women who look like centerfolds do best, right?

 

          But don't try telling that to Kayla Luck, owner of "Charmed" finishing school for men. You'll just break her innocent little heart.  Especially if you happen to be sexy, happy-to-be-single Kane McDermott, the undercover police detective who is investigating her and has already won that same sweet heart.

 

          Too bad for both him and his case the feeling is mutual.     

 

What worked for me:

 

           It was funny watching a slick alpha male trying to pass himself off as being inept with women.  I kinda wish that had gone on longer.

 

           The overall setup for this story was intriguing, as was the mystery.

 

          Size-wise Kayla was a lushly built gal whose brains were never taken seriously because of the size of her bosom. (As a side note I have always thought that it is interesting that women with large breasts are treated as sex objects, but women with both large breasts and hips are viewed as being maternal.)

 

What didn't work for me:

 

          I felt this book could have used a bit more polishing, but that's just my perfectionism I guess.  And for some reason the chemistry between the hero and heroine just didn't sizzle for me, which is odd because I generally I love a tough guy as the lead. (I enjoy reading about (near) virginal heroines and alpha heroes in Regencies, but that combo doesn't sit as well with me in contemporaries. Who knows why?)

      

Overall:

          "Simply Sinful" might appeal to fans of sexy contemporary romances, especially if they like a bit of intrigue thrown into the mix.

Warning: This book has some steamy moments and coarse words within its pages.

If you liked "Simply Sinful" you might also enjoy "Love at Large", "Getting Lucky", "It Had to be You", "Lola Carlyle Reveals All", "Born to be Wild", "Some Girls Do", "Heaven in Your Eyes" "Runaway Bay", or "This Heart of Mine".
