I have to admit, I was totally drawn in by the premise in the blurb. Bailey opens the door expecting to see the pizza guy and instead meets sexy and somewhat mysterious Ethan King. Ethan just happens to be the brother of her best friend and neighbor, Jenna. Bailey needs him. Ethan wants her. What ensues is sexy as sin, fun and even gets a little dangerous when the mob gets involved.
Bailey's character had me blushing and grimacing at the same time. For a large portion of this short story she walks around in nothing more than short shorts and a tank top. She wants Ethan, whom she just met, to notice her sexually. But she then acts alarmed when he not only notices but acts on her teasing glances and their shared sexual chemistry. She's worried that he's a player, but then flirts outrageously in the next breath. To be honest, though, I could hardly blame her -- Ethan is one hot and hunky hero!
Despite Bailey's confusing personality, I honestly enjoyed this novella. Ms. Skyze never fails to entertain. Her characters are always multi-dimensional and her stories keep the reader thoroughly engaged from beginning to end. Pick up a copy of Research Required for some fun, a little danger and lots of steamy sex. You won't be disappointed.
