Christine's Review: Let's be honest-few of us read romance novels for the great writing, intricate plot twists or deep character development. We read them for the romance and (almost always) happy endings. They are 'feel good' reads and it has been awhile since I read one.

I really enjoyed this book-the title characters were likable and there was enough of a plot (beyond the romance) that kept me interested all the way through the book. The love scenes weren't over the top or too explicit (so this can appeal to a wide range of readers) and the relationship between the main characters was believable.

Overall, if you are looking for a quick, fun, sensual love story, this is a good bet.
