My first read of Cari Quinn’s books and I am very happy I took the opportunity to do so. I truly enjoyed her writing and boy, can she write smexy, hot scenes.Jeff Maddox, twice divorced, is a book editor and big brother to Daisy who is dating a recently separated man (Lon). As a big brother, he steps in to interfere in his sister affair hoping to end it. After Jeff found Lon’s phone, he thought to call his wife to inform her of his activities. Eeeeevil right? But the plot to end that affair backfired. Instead, it leads him to an affair of his own, an affair to remember and one never to regret.
Karyn, who is in a middle of a divorce, receives a text from a stranger wanting to return her husbands’ phone. Willing and very curious she meets him for coffee. However, Karyn is already aware of Lon’s activity and not a bit bothered by it. They had fallen out of love a while back. Funny how things work out that way. =D
It started out with a single text, a cup of coffee together, smexy texts then a “booty call”. Their texts and conversations were full of sexual innuendos, which was fun to read. I love a good flirty couple. And in spite of just having met, both Karyn and Maddox were comfortable exploring each other.
Divorce is never easy and finding someone new is hard to do. This sounds like a very plausible story as we live in a world were divorce is a rising status, not always a bad thing, But I do want to say that I applaud anyone who can survive a divorce and rise up to cont. to believe love is still a possibility for them.
Just like our H/h, without taking a chance, they wouldn’t have found their HEA. And in spite of this book being too short, Ms. Quinn leaves us with a very satisfying ending.
No doubt that I will continue to read more of Ms Quinn’s work!

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
