Catching up with old friends
Reviewed in the United States on August 27, 2015
Vanity is in love with Stack, one of the MMA fighters, but he hadn’t even noticed her until she propositioned him; a night of sex in exchange for being her date at Cannon & Yvette’s wedding. She feels that the only way to reel him in is to not let him know she loves him and let Stack grow to understand how good they’d be together. But he hates lies and she fears he’ll have an issue with this one.
It’s really easy to like Vanity; she’s independent, compassionate and capable. And while both great looking and rich, neither one holds much importance to her. It’s easy to get in her head and feel her emotions. Many of the characters met in prior books are on hand and that’s one of the things I like so much about these books; it feels like catching up with friends. Love Stack’s family and I enjoyed disliking his brother-in-law.
Each of these stories has some kind of big threat in them, but for some reason the threat didn’t seem nearly as big as others, perhaps because the threat was against Stack and not Vanity.
The sex is written well, but for me there’s just too much of it with each scene going on and on. I’d have enjoyed it more if there was only a couple of detailed scenes and the rest left to the imagination.
The book also contains the novella, Back to Buckhorn.
