First little something, I actually thought until yesterday that this review was going to go up on Saturday, not Friday, so I didn't manage to read through the whole book. :( But I believe the stuff I loved about this book didn't change.
The writing by Ms. Gucker was interesting, when I was looking at the cover I expected something heavier but she had a nice light way of writing, Lanie was cute and little bit clutsy with her emotions. There we heavier parts but I really did enjoy the lightness of her writing. I always enjoy a good love triangle and Gucker writes a very interesting one, I kept expecting a threesome any moment as Lanie was seriously attracted to both men.
Now lets get to Grant and Dane. Yes, lets do that. Talk about two yummy points of a triangle! And their focus and intentions to Lanie was very very sexy! And the guys were very well built - let's face it if we were Lanie we would want both. ;) Why pick between a man's man, sexy and a little rugged or handsome wealthy with gorgeous body?
Now if you excuse me I'm dying to know how this ends,so better go read how it ends. Enjoyeing the Cliffhangehers, got it, Cliff, cliffhangers. I recommend you get this baby too, it's great fun to read, sexy, exciting and romantic!

Sexiness of Jealous Men
by Christie A.C. Gucker
Don’t get me wrong, if you’re in a trusting relationship and this emotion is not happening on a daily basis, it can lead to quite a few rewarding things. Jealousy can be healthy as well. How, you say, after I've spouted so much already about the evils of jealousy?
When your partner sees someone getting close to you, a little too close, that pang of jealousy sets in motion; they want to claim you as their property, territory, or just theirs. Knowing your partner still feels those deep feelings of not wanting to lose you can be one of the sexiest things out there. Not only that but it can make you feel more attractive and special. Sometimes your mate will go out of their way to make sure you’re firmly in place beside them. Can you imagine how flattering it is to have your partner want to woo you more because they don’t want anyone to get their hands on you?
My husband sometimes gets jealous if an old friend who I might have dated reaches out to contact me. He begins to question if things are boring with him, or that I might have had a great relationship with this other person and might find it looks more attractive than him. He, of course, has been with me for years and we have things like kids, the house and bills that can make our relationship more work and not as much fun. Am I bored with him? Is that sexual tension gone? Would it be there with this other person? That’s when hubby starts to turn on the charm. I get an extra kiss for no reason, or maybe a little note. He makes a point of holding my hand in public or draping an arm around me if a man stares a bit too long. He puffs out his chest and holds himself differently. He might also get a bit more amorous in the bedroom. Wink wink. Yeah, in this case, jealousy is sexy as hell.
Now this is all very rampant in the animal kingdom. Think about it. We see it all the time with the likes of peacocks spreading tail feathers in a display saying, “Hey look at me, I’m the hottest one here.” Or we see male animals fighting over a female. I would never encourage my husband to fight over me in fact I think it would probably freak me out a bit. But it’s in those instances that make you feel sexy and in turn your mate looks sexy as hell too. If my husband reads this he’ll of course ask me why I am comparing him to a peacock or he might wonder if some ex boyfriend has contacted me. Not to worry, because I am pretty honest with him all of the time – we even share an email address – so he has nothing to worry about. But I sure do love the feeling that I am still attractive to him and he still worries about losing me. That is what makes jealousy sexy as well for sure.
