~Carried Away~

by Donna Kauffman

      Heroine:  lush, well-rounded

   Hard-working ICU nurse Christy Russell has collapsed in a heap in her best friend's bed for some well-deserved rest after pulling a triple(!) shift at the hospital.  But her sweet slumber is soon interrupted when the man of her dreams drags her from her cozy nest to his waiting car.

   Trevor McQuillen is tired of his constant on-the-go military life. And though the handsome former Special Ops commander is ready to settle down in one place and get busy developing his new business, he certainly has no plans to fall in love. But how can he resist the tousle-haired, chocolate-eyed bombshell he just accidentally kidnapped?

      What worked for me:

      Once I suspended my disbelief over the unlikely opening scenario, I found the situation to be quite funny. (Well, it's funny as long as it never happens to me.  Heaven forbid!)

      There's plenty of sexual tension to be had in this Harlequin Temptation "wrong bed" series addition, and I had a great time watching the relationship develop between Christy and Trevor.  

     I loved the descriptions of Christy: curves-upon-curves, cleavage all over.  There was a dress size attributed to her at the very beginning of the book, but it seems like an arbitrary number was picked and applied to her.  The phrases used to describe Christy seemed to belong to a woman a few sizes (or more) larger.  So don't let that smallish sounding number make you put the book down.  If you were looking for a plus-size heroine, you found one in this book.  Honest! :^) 

What didn't work for me:    

      I couldn't truly get into this story for one reason and one reason only:  the hero's name also happens to be the same as a member of my family!  That's always a kill-joy.  :^P (Believe me though, name aside the hero was very enjoyable!)   

Overall:

     This was a fast, fun read.  It's the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon. :^) (There are some fairly steamy spots, so reader beware.)

     If you liked "Carried Away" you might also enjoy "Love at Large", "Baby at His Convenience", "Some Girls Do", "Suite Seduction", "The Independent Bride", "The Librarian's Passionate Knight", "The Bridesmaid's Reward", "Born to be Wild", "The Course of True Love", "Runaway Bay""More to Love", "Plum Girl", "This Heart of Mine", "Lola Carlyle Reveals All", "His Seductive Revenge", "Dear Cupid""Looking for Laura", "Spellbound", or "Sweet Memories".
