    Great read!

    You know, I'm not usually a fan of the "I want a baby" storyline, but Turn It Up was so much more than that. I really enjoyed it.

    Natasha "Tasha" Bellingham is a 34-year-old architect who's decided she needs to have a baby before she's 35. Since her string of loser boyfriends hasn't been very promising, she's decided to go a more "clinical" route. As the story opens, she's hung over from her "last hurrah" before she settles down and begins a more healthy and pregnancy-centric lifestyle.

    Maxwell Turner is the 24-year-old cousin of Natasha's best friend, Lila. He's had his sights set on Tasha since he graduated from college at age 17, but she's always rebuffed him. Last night, however, after he drove them home from their evening out, Tasha was so drunk she told him everything about Operation Baby. Max knows this is his chance to prove to her that he's the man for her.

    Oh, these two were so perfect together! Max was so earnest and has loved Tasha for so long, and Tasha has been burned too many times to let her heart get broken again. Max's large and boisterous family contrasts with Tasha's estranged mother and absent father. Max does everything he can to show her that he can give her child, their child - if she agrees, so much love and devotion and a large, loving family.

    When Max and Natasha finally got together, they were hot! Super sexy doesn't begin to cover it - these two were on fire in the bedroom! And I love that Max used that heat for all it was worth to wear down her self-imposed emotional walls.

    There wasn't any sort of villain or "horrible event" in the story, only Tasha's self-doubts about getting involved with a younger man and thinking she can never love again. Her situation with her best friend Lila was unresolved, which I found frustrating, but I can also see where that could happen in real life. I really liked Max's big family, especially his twin sister Maxy, and hope we'll be reading her story soon.

    All in all, Turn It Up was a super-sweet romance with lots of passion, a charming hero and a heroine who thinks she'll never find love.

    more from this reviewer

    Good

    I enjoyed the story but would have liked have read it before Turn It On instead of the the other way around. This is really a prequel.

    I'd love to see more from the intricate Turner family in the future though.

    Well worth it!

    Great story of falling in love in spite of family! I could not wait to read it to the end, which came too soon! It was 416 pages of good read. I liked it so much, I bought her other book in the series just a couple of pages in this one. I also looked up the author and bought other books based on my enjoyment of this one.

    fantasize about the younger-guy crush I had many, many years ago.

    good ead

    After you read Turn it on you need to read this one. He wants her so badly he talks her into letting him help her with something she wants real bad. And love happens. She is ten years older than he is.
