Genre: Erotic Contemporary
Related Title: More than Meets the Ink

Steering clear of relationships has never been difficult for demolitions expert Cole Bowen, but now, with his brother's engagement sending the female population into full-blown hysterics and the town of Alden's month-long festivities helping along, he finds himself in hell. When he discovers Alden's new resident and the object of all his wet dreams, Christine Sheridan, has sworn off relationships and is going to hire a gigolo to get professionally laid, he decides to kill two birds with one stone.

Christy is so not drinking again. Thanks to José Cuervo she has her friends signing her up for stud conventions and Cole frigging Bowen offering sex in exchange for fake dates, which is so out of the question it isn't even funny. She knows the domineering man will push her boundaries, and after battling all her life with self-esteem issues, she isn't ready for that. Too bad he won't take no for an answer.

Cole is determined to strip away all of her defenses but refuses to lower his ever-present walls, so when Christy realizes she wants more, she's left with only two options; walk away or crack his shield and risk her heart in the process.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse.

These Bowen Brothers are just plain hot. While I really enjoyed getting to know James and Tate, Christy and Cole's story left me stuttering. I'm so glad that I finally had the chance to read these sexy, sexy books.  Christy was such a real character to me. She's battled with weight issues for a long time, but she is in a healthier place emotionally. However, she still has body image issues that she deals with daily. I mean...who couldn't relate to that. Not only could I relate to her, but I just generally liked her character. She's someone I would likely be friends with.  I knew I would like Cole going into this book. I'm not exactly sure why, because we don't get to know him too much in the first book, but I was right with my first instinct. I mean, I REALLY liked Cole. Of course he's sexy, but he's more than that. He is an alpha male, no doubt about it, but he also has a sensitive, compassionate side to him, that made me love him even more. Add in his dedication to his brothers, his job, and eventually Christy, and this guy is damn near perfect.  The sex in this book....there are just no words to explain. This book had my pulse up, my head in the freezer, and dragging the hubs into the bedroom. TMI? It's not even that it was kinky or out of the ordinary sex, it was just really scorching. I think what got me so revved up was the way Cole talks to Christy. While they have an "arrangement" for sex, he definitely feels something more for her and makes her feel valued and beautiful. It was such a turn on.  Overall, Heavy Issues just did it for me. This book was about a couple developing a relationship. There were no fancy twist and turns to the story; it was just about Christy and Cole. They overcame some obstacles and were able to find a truly loving relationship in the end. I loved it.  If you are looking for a steamy romance, look no further. The Bowen Series doesn't disappoint. It has great sex and romance. What more could you want? Except maybe ANOTHER Bowen story. I know I do. Can't wait for Max!

Cole is a great alpha male and Christy story about her self conscious issues make this a great read. Funny too.

I loved it! The story line was deeper than the first book, but I thought it was great. I think the author nailed the emotions and the self loathing of the female lead in reguards to her eating disorder. If you have ever been fat in your life you will really relate to all the body issues and strugles the female lead expresses. The romance is hot, not to mention Cole is hmmm hmmm good!

I wasn't prepared for the anal sex. Also there was just too much explanation about food addiction, to the point of annoyance.

## Too much emphasis on the heroine's weight! Talk about beating a dead horse. Call me shallow, but I like my characters beautiful. That's why I read fiction!

I read this immediately after reading More Than Meets The Ink. I could not help myself.  I had to see what was next for the Bowen brothers.  While this book did let us see a bit more about Tate and *swoon* James *swoon*, it focused on Christy and Cole.  I found Christy a much more likable heroine that Tate was and I think that is why I was up until 4 am finishing the book.  Even though I "knew" all would work out for the best, I had to see for myself.  Both Cole and Christy are very broken by things from their past and neither is really willing to trust even though their hearts are both telling them to.  In this very hot read, you get to see them discover what it means to let go and take a chance.  You do need to let go and go with the flow when they make their arrangement because it is not overly realistic, but that is easy to do with the author's addictive writing style.  Plus, I am not a huge lover of all things realistic in my hot romances ;) .   This book does have a heroine with a history of eating issues and that may be a sensitive topic for some reader.  If you are looking for a hot read with an amazingly wonderful Bowen brother this may be just the read for you.   I am very much looking forward to more from the Bowen brothers!

Heavy Issues picks up not long after More Than Meets the Ink leaves off. Brother Cole's rocky road to romance delivers the perfect paradox - two people who want no strings and end up in a big knotty mess. Aycart continues to bespell readers with more of her hot Bowen boys - where were they when I lived in Boston? Heroine Christy battles her body image issues long after the weight is gone. Cole battles his abandonment issues long after his mother walks away from her little boy. With all that durm und strang, how can two people find their way into happiness? If you live in Alden, apparently in the bedroom (and car and closet and kitchen....) Again Aycart doesn't take the easy road with her characters. They are multi-dimensional, and their worlds are very compelling for their realness. Oh, and did I fail to mention really, really supercharged sexual tension and erotic scenes? Grab your fan and ice water because they generate some serious steam! The very strong secondary characters flesh out more of story and tease the reader with hopes that future stories will unfold. In fact, I can hardly wait to read little brother Max's tale. I fully admit to staying up past bedtime for this read. How can you not with a treat that makes you laugh, cry and sigh for more smokin hot romance! Take a chance on the Bowen boys - they'll boss your pants off the right way!
