Sizzling | [Susan Mallery]

Sizzling

A spiteful article about the former pitcher and current playboy, Reid Buchanan, questions his talent in the bedroom. And the newspaper's just the first bad news. Reid's grandmother Gloria's broken hip means she needs constant care, but Reid hired Nurses 1 and 2 for their bedside manner with him. So for Number 3 he chooses Lori Johnson, the first candidate who seems immune to his brand of charm.

Publisher's Summary

Reid Buchanan was always a fan favorite on the baseball diamond. But between the sheets?

A spiteful article about the former pitcher and current playboy questions his talent in the bedroom. And the newspaper's just the first bad news. Reid's grandmother Gloria's broken hip means she needs constant care, but Reid hired Nurses 1 and 2 for their bedside manner with him. So for Number 3 he chooses Lori Johnson, the first candidate who seems immune to his brand of charm.

Lori's never wasted her time with amoebas like Reid Buchanan. So why are her well-fortified defenses starting to crumble under the force of his sexy smile and the kindness he shows her at every turn? There's only one explanation for the feelings flaring between them: chemistry. Chemistry so hot, it's sizzling!

    "Better Than The Last Susan Mallory-But Not A Fan"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This was o.k. Time well spent? Maybe/maybe not-I won't listen to this again so probably not.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Susan Mallery? Why or why not?

    I bought two Susan Mallory books on sale at the recommendation of the Audible agents who are usually spot on. I'm extremely picky. The premise of this book is better than the last (Accidentally Yours) but...

    This is based on a newspaper article revealing one of the main character's sexual performance....whahhhh? His grandmother breaks a hip and he sleeps with 2 out of 3 of the nurses he hires for her recovery....really?!?

    There were also a couple of sub plots that were connected but they did not hold my interest enough to care how or if they were related.

    I was also turned off by the man (Reid) asking his girlfriend to confront his exes for him. Way to emasculate your manly, baseball playing, hee-man. Man up, dude!

    No, I don't think I'll try another.


    What three words best describe Alyson Silverman’s voice?

    Smooth, steady & confident


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book containing some sex and a strange premise for a plot. For me it needed either a stronger plot or more steamy sex (better yet both!)

    This may appeal to everyone else but for me it didn't work (see my other reviews for my preferences). It is a bit too trashy for a chic lite book but not a strong enough plot for someone looking for something more intense. It falls between genres.

    NOTE: Some descriptions of sex

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    "Light hearted listening."

    This was good for some laughs and some drama. The characters were well done and I liked them. The family dynamics that run through the series is interesting and the characters are consistent throughout. Really should read the series in order.

    "sizzles but better read together as series"

    Third book in the series. Still a fun series. I just didn't find that the sudden turn around of Gloria realistic. Just like Cal I wanted to look for pod people. Besides that I liked the story enough. Being a part of series makes this book much better.

    "Weak story line"

    I can't say I didn't know what this book was about but still it started out silly, then predicable, then sad. Light read, very light. Good narration.

    "GREAT LISTEN"

    I think this book was great! It had a little something for everyone. Really liked the characters and the suspense of the relationship
    between the two main characters.
