Jillian Hunter has been around for quite some time, but for some reason this is the first time I have read a book of hers. She has been on my watch list for a while, and I just had to try her out when I noticed this series on the shelves of my local library. So I thought I would be “original” and try this series in order. Let’s see if I can complete this “mission impossible” since I seem to have the worst habit of reading a series out of order. Any who….I will say that I truly loved this story. Now it did take me a bit of time to get into the book, but I think I was just adjusting to the unique writing style of the author.
This book was a ball of laughs and giggles, and I loved this couple. They were so engaging, especially to this reader, and the interaction between them was contagious, I just almost wished I could just jump into the pages and join in their fun. Now the real fun…doesn’t happen until toward the end and wow did that surprise me. Normally, with a plot line like this one, you don’t expect it to turn out this way, but this author really twisted her way with this story; I loved her creativity with the series of events. The way she forms these characters, well it was just charming. I loved every one that played a part in the story. What I also loved was seeing the family of Gray…their comradery and teasing of each other, added a certain flair to the story and a bit of drama at times. But what exquisite drama it is! An lighthearted and playful story with a touch of sensuality and moving emotions…Deliciously SEXY!!
