“I have probably discovered another author I will go back and read more of.” ~ Under the Covers

Well, this was totally unexpected.  RIPPED was entertaining and funny from the very opening where our heroine, Hayley, is a bridesmaid at her ex-boyfriend’s wedding only to have her dress rip during the ceremony and flash the whole church.  Alas, sexy, dark and brooding hero comes to the rescue.  No, not the douche ex-boyfriend now getting married.  The sexy Italian best friend whom she thought always hated her.

Niccolò is, yes as mentioned above, sexy as hell.  And I always enjoy short stories where there is history between the characters because it makes the story more believable for me.  Apparently Niccolò was always interested in Hayley.  Knew she deserved better than his douche friend.  After the break up, he was just waiting for the right time to sink his claws into her.  That, and make sure she was over him.  The events at the wedding just put everything into fast forward.

I loved the way the author dropped subtle hints about his feelings for her through others eyes.  Things she hadn’t seen at the time but that showed a deeper level of care.  How their relationship didn’t come out of nowhere for him and in reality not for her either since she usually enjoyed his company more than her actual boyfriend at the time.

Typical of one of these Cosmo Red-Hot Reads, you can expect to have a few laughs.  Some strong characters, including a feisty female. And a whole lot of sexy!  I have probably discovered another author I will go back and read more of.
