I'm always nervous when an author that has been successful in one genre, steps into another one. The cover for this book was really catchy and I had high hopes it would be good. Expectations = Met! I knew this was gonna be epic simply by getting 3% into the book and coming across this gem...
"I swap you two turkey for my daughter's pussy. Yeah? You like? you want?"
How can you not love a book by just that statement alone? You can't that's how. I absolutely loved this book! It was funny, sexy and suspenseful.
When Hale's dad comes home drunk with Otto Maree one night she overhears a conversation that could change her life. Due to an accident the two men came to an agreement to wed Hale to Otto's son Oscar in order to give Hale a better life and keep her dad from spilling the beans about the accident. When Hale meets Oscar she is attracted to him but tries her best to find a way out of this situation, especially knowing Oscar has a girlfriend. They end up going away to his father's beach house to get to know each other.
"Eggs sound good? I can make them however you want, as long as you want them scrambled."
Oscar and Hale start to get closer as the story progresses and she finds herself getting more and more used to the idea of marrying him. When Oscar's friends show up for a surprise visit all hell seems to break loose. Something happens during the course of this visit that blows the story wide ass open! I was so caught off guard by the revelation I nearly choked on my tongue! The way the story was going it pointed the finger in another direction up until shit got real. Once that situation is over Hale and Oscar get the wedding plans started.
"I think you're perfect for me Hale, and I'm just waiting for you to realize that I'm perfect for you too."
Now let's just take a minute to discuss the hotness that is Oscar Maree! I usually don't get into the whole "Book Boyfriend" thing because I feel like an old weirdo, but you bitches better back off my man! I am totally claiming this sumbitch! Not only was Oscar hot, but he said some of the sweetest things I have read from a book character.
"I've never felt like this about anyone else. When we're apart, it's like I find these little holes in myself. Without you, I'm not even me."
Fucking PINCH ME! If a guy ever said anything like that to me I would put my junk on his face in a heartbeat! Oscar was sexy, fun, and charming. He knew how to give Hale the space she needed while showing her how he felt at the same time. I didn't expect this book to be as hot as it was but I was soon fanning myself, and changing my drawers lol! There was a particular scene in the book that involves a necktie that was hot as hell!
"Would you like to touch me?"
Um Yes! Yes I certainly would! Show me the sign up sheet and I'll touch you ALL. NIGHT. LONG.
Aside from the Boom Boom there were really funny parts, and the relationship between Hale and her best friend Sher was genius!
"So, has he squeezed the melon? Felt around the first floor? Nuggled with a hobbit?"
I mean come on this book has it all! It was witty with the banter between Hale and Sher, the steam between Oscar and Hale was beyond sexy and the overall plot was exciting and original. I loved the way it ended, it totally made me all swoony and giggly. About the only thing I wish would have been included was Oscar's POV, but when it comes down to it, the damn book was just wonderful! You owe it to yourself to read this book.
