Wanda Schwartz is raking in the dough selling Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics - and she's a pro at recruiting new saleswomen. So, she's shocked when a man comes to one of her in-home parties - a very hot man. Heath Jefferson is sure to put some extra spin into a lot of women's color wheels.
When Wanda is diagnosed with a terminal illness, it doesn't have to be a death sentence. With a werewolf and a vampire for best friends, she has options that most ordinary people wouldn't. As Wanda ponders what to do about her mortality, Heath reveals he has secrets, and one of them is that his former bloodlust has turned into an old-fashioned lust - for Wanda. And he's already given up too much to lose the love of his lifetimes.

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 3
Wanda Schwartz is keeping a secret from her two best friends. A secret that once it gets out will change everything. But in the mean time Wanda has to get ready for her open house and sign up some new recruits for Bobby Sue. But Wanda’s newest and brightest recruit my just challenge ever one of Wanda’s last nerves.
To say that Heath Jefferson is having a rough go of it would be an understatement. Poor guys only has the cloths on his back, a watch, his man servant and his car. But when he sees the add to make a bunch of money in a short period of time he jumps at the chance. Only problem. He is a man. Yes, a man. A man who is willing to sell woman’s makeup to make a buck.
I was so excited to get to Wanda’s book. And while the story was good, the beginning was just a tad bit slow for me. But as the story went on I found that it got better and better. The last few chapters were my favorite of the whole book. I liked Wanda and Heath. I thought they were pretty funny together. It was fun to see Marty and Nina too. Even if my ears will never be the same after listening to Nina talk (Wowza that girl needs a bar of soap). All in all I am glad that I stuck with this book and finished it out.
Again, Ms. Mitchell does a great job of bring Ms. Cassidy’s characters to life. There were a few time when Ms. Mitchell was reading Nina’s dialog that I felt a little bad and shocked. She really was able to get into Nina’s potty mouth. I often wonder how narrator’s feel about things like that. :) But I loved it and I can’t wait for the next book in this series.
I purchased a copy of this audiobook from Audible.com. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
This is a very bright story of romance and of the dynamics of three very special friends . Who says friends are split when outside romance happins.. These friends hang in there . I liked it the reader's voice is awsome and helps to dynamically carry the story .
It took a while for me to get into the 1st book but once I did I enjoyed it. The 3rd book was kind of boring because you pretty much knew what to expect but it was still good. I'm about to start the 4th book. For the most part this series is a pretty good one thus far.
yes it inspired me to find my local werewolf pack and ask them to bite me...who comes up with these questions....?
The first book the killas and hellas were annoying. The second they made sense with the character even though they were still annoying. The third book they were annoying and stupid and even more out of character than the first book. I mean...this is WANDA.... these weren't teenage boys these were door to door cosmetics sales women in their thirties....
I absolutely love this series! The characters keep you guessing as to what mess they'll get themselves into! I can't wait to start the next book in the series!
Book addict. Not a quitter!
A great fun book to go to when you need to smile. The banter between characters is hilarious! Dakota Cassidy is one of my new favs!
This series is a must read. The narrator is great and does a wonderful job and Dakota Cassidy is a great author, I love all her books just wish there were more.
But after the second and third I am just fed up with the characters and obvious plot line that is exactly the same in every book. And the reason it was so bad is each character made the same mistakes that they chided the other characters in the other books.
I don't mind cussing/profanity where appropriate but this was way over the top and only there for the sake of cussing. There are better ways and words to get across the same message. Cussing/profanity should be used to flavor the conversation not take over. It's like using Ghost pepper when a Jalapeño would do. Nice flavor and heat makes the point.
Wanda's voice was unbearable, among other things. I wasn't expecting the graphic sex scenes ...way too much information. Just not my cup of tea, plus the ending was never a surprise! My least favorite audio book I have ever listened to! And unfortunately I bought another book in the series from the "start a new series" sale! That is money down the drain! Guess I should have stuck to my old favorites!
