by Vicki Lewis Thompson, Carly Phillips and Janelle Denison – This is not a novel; rather it is a compilation of three sexy novellas that center around a common element: sexual escapades, each chosen from a book of suggested fantasy adventures at a bridal store. Our three heroines and heros are quick to get into the sensual action, and the sex sounds steamy indeed. Still, the women are pretty much cookie-cutter versions of one another: repressed (because they’ve been waiting for “the right man” to “bring out their hidden sexual depths”), recovering from romantic disappointment, and insecure about their own abilities and charms. The men also are pretty much identical: blue collar, emotionally distant (until “the right woman” tears down their walls by sheer force of her orgasms), gorgeous.
If you’re looking for believable plots and plausible action, you’ll be disappointed in this book. If, however, you’re looking for fun reads about sexy romps in and out of the bed, you just might have found your next read! (finished 12/21/2012)
