“This is one hot and spicy novella, sure to warm up your evening or lunch hour.” ~Under the Covers

JUST WHAT SHE WANTS is a different type of 1Night Stand than I’m used to, and that’s a good thing.  The arranging for this one night stand was done sort of behind the scenes and the main characters were not aware of the setup.  That was refreshing in reading this series and got major points with me!

That being said, this is my first time reading this author and I’ve been wanting to try her for a while.  Even though short stories can be hard to convey a realistic connection, I think this novella does a pretty good job at it.

We have Kyle and Marc who are a couple but have been looking for a woman to complete their lives.  They are both in charge of running a pleasure resort in Orlando, FL.  Kyle has gone through a troubled past, the death of a loved one, an accident that left him crippled and also closed off his emotions.

Then in comes Indiana Jones from London, ready to have a wild and adventurous vacation.  Ha!  Yeah, I’m not kidding about the name.  Indie has a great personality and is just a tad naive but knows when to jump on an opportunity when it’s presented.

The story was great and the sex of course was very sexy, however I think I could’ve done with more of the getting to know each other that we just didn’t have time for because it’s a short story.

Nevertheless, this is one hot and spicy novella, sure to warm up your evening or lunch hour. 🙂

About Barbara Elsborg

Barbara Elsborg lives in West Yorkshire in the north of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.

After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop.

Her books feature quirky heroines and bad boys, and she hopes they are as much fun to read as they are to write.
