Funny, Funny Read!
This was a great start to a new series by T.L. Alexander, and I can't wait for the next book. I would consider this a spinoff of the Layers Series because this book's Hero is Dr. Dino Coletti and if you read the layers series you'll remember that he is the uncle of Alexia and Samantha, he has moved to a small little town in Oregon to fill a two-year medical position at the hospital. That being said you do not have to read the Layers Series in order to read this one, it can be read separately and you will not feel as if you have missed anything.
Dannie grew up on Whisper Lake but moved away for a while, now she is back, after a nasty divorce, with her daughter and she is taking the lake by storm. I always like when a wealthy person returns to their hometown to do good, and that is exactly what Dannie is doing.
Dannie has heard gossip about the new man living on the other end of the Lake though she has yet to meet him...according to all the women, young and old, he is something to behold. After two run-ins (literally) she agrees that he is good looking but that's it, she has no interest in any man let alone a Doctor after the way her Doctor ex-husband treated her.
This story was so much fun to read, I loved all of the characters, and the banter between them all was just great. I was laughing so much during this book. I cannot wait to the next one is released.
Here's a Little Excerpt:
He invades me and my body opens up to receive him, as if saying, I've been waiting for you, dumbass. What took you so damn long?
He moans."Dear lord, you feel like heaven. I've wanted you and this for so long. You're never getting away, Dan. Never."
"Stop talkin' the talk. I want--"
He thrusts forward. "Is that what you want?"
"Yes," I say and dig my nails into his ass cheeks.
He finds his rhythm and I dance along. All is well until it shifts from first to fifth,and I get left behind. Soon he's groaning and spouting unintelligible words.
He pulls out and collapses next to me. "God, Dannie, that was..."
Over in a blink of the eye. Faster than a bullet train. Quicker than sand. Unbelievably unfulfilling. I bite my lip and choke down my tears of shock and frustration. How could a man who looks like he does, smells like he does,is hung like he is, and has had as many lovers as he has be such a...disappointment? I might not be an expert at these things; but come on...
Some Quotes from the Book:
“That’s how I knew my second husband was a keeper. I gave him the test… The third time we hooked up, I wore my biggest granniest, white cotton panties.”
“Marcie said he’s the hottest thing to hit the lake since your dad. I told her, it’s not possible. You dad is and will always be the honey to my dew.”
“He removes three condoms and sets his wallet aside. He kisses them one by one. ‘I’ve never been so happy to see you. Come to Papa, you little gold treasures of pleasure.’”
