Three novellas of the odd couples getting together!
Taking A Leap - After having spent a long time admiring the gorgeous Alyssa at work, Brad a geek and a nice guy sees her break up with her boyfriend and when Brad agrees to ghost write a sex scene due to a desperate client's request Alyssa teams up with him and maybe he's been given a chance.
Light My Fire - Romance novel publisher Amy agrees to cat-sit for her lesbian friend, not expecting a hot fireman like Troy to make acquaintances. Troy has no desire to settle down, he's perfectly happy with being single and having one night stands. Believing Amy is his lesbian neighbors newest girlfriend he gets closer to her than any girl before and that might just be the downfall of him being single, if only Amy wasn't a lesbian.
Second Time Around - Setting up newly divorced Maddie and near divorced Antonio seemed like a good idea by their friends but it seems they both have plenty of package to slug around. Things heat up and neither one can fight the attraction too long, not willing to give in they both battle to figure out if it's too soon and if there are such things as second chances in love.
Taking A Leap was such a funny, light romantic comedy - but with such a yummy sexy side! I loved Brad and Alyssa, such a cute might-be/might-be-not couple with serious chemistry. I loved the ending especially as they meet Alyssa's ex, loved it! ;) I liked Brad's sexy side even being a geek the guy was pretty well built and Alyssa's high maintenance appearance, but books really shouldn't be judged by the cover and there is so much more to her than a pretty face. Taking A Leap was a great start for the three novella collection!
Light My Fire was hilarious! From flamboyant gay men in gay clubs to alpha male firemen this story was funny, witty and romantic with a little bit heartbreak. Troy confusing Amy for a lesbian and beginning to develop feeling for her was fun to read and Amy was so clueless of the fact it was priceless. Many laugh out loud moments, lots of romance and anticipation! Yummy!
Second Time Around was more mature, somber novella in the collection. More sad and not quite so fun and playful. Second chances usually are about exes getting together again - but in Second Time Around two people burned by love battle wither it's safe to take that dive again.
I loved how all these stories tied together with Maria the lesbian romance novel author with computer problems, in need of a cat-sitter, throwing engagement parties. I liked the red line tying all the novellas together to get a coherent collection of romance!
Cat Johnson writes great romance! The characters are fun, sexy and believable ( which is more than crucial! )! If you haven't read Johnson's contemporary romance yet this is great place to start! I've been in love with her cowboy romance since Unridden, but I have new found love for her contemporary line!
