Blog Tour: Review of The Hot Bod Series 1 & 2 by Lacey Wolfe

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…

Drew is the last person Skylar wanted to see across from her at a local bar. A month ago he'd wined and dined her all weekend, leaving her feeling fully in love, but then she awoke alone in an empty hotel room and she hadn't heard from him since.

The weekend Drew spent with Skylar was phenomenal. There had never been anyone who made him feel as complete as she did. He shouldn't have disappeared, he should have called, but his feelings for her scared him, so he distanced himself. But when he saw her again, he knew he couldn't stay away any longer.

Skylar's determined not to give Drew another chance to hurt her, but he's just as determined to win her back. Although it won't be easy, he's up to the challenge, and he's willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish his goal.

My Take:

I enjoyed this one.  Drew and Skylar are so meant for each other.  It just takes Drew a little more time to figure that out than it does the rest of us.  Even though it was a short story, I felt like I had enough back story to really know the characters.  I liked Skylar and respected her.  I could understand her reluctance to want to get back into a relationship with Drew.  The guy keeps leaving her!  Ms. Wolfe knows how to write a steamy love scene and the ones between Drew and Skylar definitely sizzle!  Definitely pick this one up!

Can she settle for just a little fun?

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning Adam stops by Amy's bakery for one of her delicious muffins…and a little flirting. When he finally asks her out, Amy is thrilled.

Adam informs her from the beginning that he isn't looking for anything serious. Just a little fun. Amy agrees, even though she isn't entirely sure that's what she wants.

She does her best to play it cool, but Adam is sending so many mixed signals he's confusing her, which she finds incredibly frustrating.

Adam is terrified by the feelings he's developing for Amy. It would be so much easier if he just backed away from her. Then there's his sister, who is insisting that Amy is not the right girl for him.

Will Adam be able to figure out what his heart desires before it's too late and he loses his chance at true happiness?

My Take: 

More Than Useful is just as good as the first in the series, Fool Me Once.  The attraction and tension between Adam and Amy is so strong that you can't wait to see them together. I loved the scene where he FINALLY asks her out on a date.  It was too cute!  As I was reading, I was so not liking Adam though.  I felt like he kept stringing her along.  She lasted far longer than I would have !  He did redeem himself in the end, so I I don't hate him anymore!  I loved their HEA!

I look forward to the next one in the series.  I hope it is Francesca's story!

About the author:

It's always been my dream to be a writer. Ever sense I was a child, creating stories has been a passion of mine. I have always said that one day I would be an author. Finally, I am working on this dream of mine. I have two children who have been keeping me busy for the past 7 years. My youngest is starting pre-k this year and I have more time for me and to concentrate on what I want out of this life. So I am picking up pen and paper...well I guess keyboard and screen, and working on this dream. It isn't going to be easy. There will be many ups and downs, but I am ready. I know this dream will come true, my mom told me so, "You can be anything you want to be when you grow up." Thanks mom, here goes nothing!

Thank you for the wonderful reviews. Jane's story is next and Francesca will follow. I saved her for last so I could show a more softer side of her in Accidental Love (June 2012).
