Getting a seriously late-in-the-day start friends, but happy Friday and upcoming weekend just the same. I am SO looking forward to the BNP Paribas Tennis Championships starting tomorrow. I need something to tide me over until the French Open late in May!
Just finished reading fellow Liberty States Fiction Writer Jenn Nixon’s WILD AND WICKED: Quick, short read, a very fun ride and so NOT LACKING in heat and perfect for getting you through the weekend. (Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my thoughts on it.)
In a nutshell, Veronica Chance, goes undercover as a waitress at a “gentlemen’s club.” She is in search of her sister, who appears to have gone missing. On her first night at work, she winds up providing a mini lap dance to none other than the country’s most sought after detective, Mason Storm. Each immediately realizes the chemistry between them. Mason quickly picks up on Veronica being in such a place for more than cash. Veronica senses the ‘good guy’ in Mason. As the night winds down Mason has his first opportunity to play hero and rescues Veronica when he realizes she was drugged at an after-party where hedonism runs rampant, women are used and possibly being trafficked. Mason is also impressed with Veronica’s smarts; most especially how much she’s learned—in one night— about a case he’s been working on for two years. They agree to team up.
The rest you’ll have to read for yourself.
I have to say, author Jenn Nixon packed a whole lot of story into 48 short pages. She had me hooked on Mason by the end of his first scene. (I’m such a sucker for the hero who picks up on the damsel in distress.) Veronica is self-assured, smart, witty and just…happening. Well written, fast-paced; packed with chemistry, humor, vivid language and popping scenes on all levels, WILD AND WICKED did not disappoint. (I take that back. It did too disappoint. It ended. But: CHANCE OF A STORM, the sequel, is available. I’ll be reading–and most likely providing my take on it too!) Read more about all of Jenn’s books at her website!
