After a childhood immersed in poverty, all Alice Beasley wants is a life of financial security bound to a safe man. She thinks she has this until the day she goes to the small town of Sloan to acquire her grandmother's inheritance. She's then propelled down the rabbit hole to a new life of excitement and uncertainty. Alice is now to take part in the management of the Fancy Free condom company, much to the unhappiness of her fiancee. Teaching her the ropes for the next six months is the super sexy James Bates. And what starts out as lessons in the boardroom soon leads to lessons in the bedroom. Alice desperately wants the company to succeed so she can gain her inheritance. So she throws aside her stuffy fiancee and throws herself wholeheartedly into the world of condoms and sexual matters. Under the guise of product testing, Alice and James start a relationship that is at first casual but slowly becomes more. It soon becomes apparent that there's a traitor in the company, one who not only wants to harm the business but Alice as well. By protecting her, will James finally find a reason to stay in one place forever or will he toss away love for more wanderings?

Alice is a wonderful character who has always felt self-conscious about her looks and been intensely worried about her finances. Watching her with James is like watching a flower bloom. She becomes more outspoken and starts taking chances in life and in love. James is also a very likable character. He's always been seen as a womanizer who can't settle down. His relationship with Alice allows us to see a different side of him, one that's capable of commitment. They're the perfect couple, working through misunderstandings quickly while bringing out the best in each other. Not to mention how combustible they are in the bedroom.

Small town living is presented realistically with many colorful characters and a town gossip. All of this adds to the storyline's mystery and infuses it with greatly appreciated humor. There are also quite a few characters that I'd like to see more of. And I will definitely be the first in line to purchase any sequels that are released.

A fun read, interesting characters, but predictable

Over all a fun read with interesting characters. I felt the plot was a bit predictable, but I still enjoyed watching it unfold.

    Meh My ability to suspend disbelief and settle in and enjoy this

    Meh
    My ability to suspend disbelief and settle in and enjoy this bit of erotica was strained here. It felt a bit like bad porn. The heroine was fine
     but the hero was okay. The secondary characters were all annoying. The sex scenes were much more emotionally engaging than the
     rest of the story. This one didn't more for me. I am fairly picky about contemporary erotic though so it may be to your taste. 

    I was given this book for my honest review and so there you have it.
