Start Me Up

Publisher: HQN

Publish Date: 1 July 2009

Origins: Purchased

Format: Paperback

Blurb: Lori had always planned to get out of tiny Tumble Creek, Colorado, but when her late dad left her his beloved auto body shop, she'd stayed. Now, according to her crazy best friend, Molly, what Lori needs is some excitement, in the form of hot, no-strings-attached sex…and lots of it.

Quinn Jennings has buildings on the brain—not love and romance. A serious architect, he's delighted to discover that Lori is willing to skip dating protocols and head straight for the sheets. And aided by the steamy books on Lori's bedside table, he's busy indulging both of their wildest fantasies. But when life in Tumble Creek takes a dangerous turn for Lori, Quinn's protective instincts kick in.

Suddenly he cares. More than either of them ever expected….

Review: As I have said before I HEART VICTORIA DAHL! Ok, now that has been said I am going to say that I like this book least of all she has written. That does not mean I didn't like it, I just liked every other book more than this one. It is still an excellent book! I will forever more read every single thing this lady writes.

I enjoyed this book because it is far away from where I live. I can see the mountains, the snow, and all the crazy beautiful winters. I don't have that here, so this book is one of my vacation escapes. I also enjoyed the way Lori is not the typical girl, being a women in a "man's profession" I felt that I could relate to her a lot easier than I could many other contemporary romance heroines. I also love the sexiness that is Quinn...I have known many a character in my day and anytime they are named Quinn they are sex incarnate...and this one is no exception. I love the lines that Ms. Dahl walks in this book when it comes to the sensual scenes, they are crazy hot and very edgy. I say *high five*.

I did not like the fact that this book starts slow. I also don't like the fact that Lori is so darn stubborn; she is unnaturally stubborn in my opinion and I did not like that...she could have saved a lot of trouble had she just let go. Hmm...other than that, I loved everything else.

I hear this book as much as I do all her other and can't wait to get my hands on whatever she is working on next.
