    Loved it!

    Tori and Grady's love story is cute and funny. A corrupt City Hall, private investigating, and the FBI investigatiin all contribute to a great clean read. 534 pages.

    Humorous tale...

    Tori's first case as an apprentice detective seems simple enough; follow Grady Palmer and report to the client, Ms. M, if he is a good man or not. Whether or not he is good, Tori can tell he's hot from the first moment she lays eyes on him. Unfortunately, he lays eyes on her too, and is quick to figure out that she is tailing him. So, he offers to make the job easier and just tell her where he's going and even escort her there. Tori quickly comes up with a half truth, she's following him because she's attracted, and it's more than half true to be honest. She's not sure why Ms M wants to find out about Grady, but in the conflict of interest dispute, Tori is sure of one thing, Grady has her heart and she's not going to let him be hurt. ..................... Meanwhile, Grady's secretary is having her own adventure, proving to a divorced father of two that she's not a self absorbed, shallow twit and would make a terrific step mom. .................... *** Laugh out loud fun is guaranteed in this screwball comedy of family and love. Between a scraggly cat, cute twins, and a daffy elderly lady, you will giggle from page one to the end. ***

    Amusing romantic romp

    In Florida, twenty-five years old Tori Whitley knows it is time for her to become independent as her brother the architect and her sister the pediatrician have been. However, when you have no skills and are used to depending on others it is hard to obtain a decent job. However, her cousin Eddie Sassenbury down in Boca Raton offers her work as his assistant in his private sleuthing business that has many clients. Tori rationalized that if that loser Eddie can succeed she should easily be able to perform undercover work........................... Eddie assigns his apprentice to tail Seahaven businessman Grady Palmer to determine what kind of person he is. She immediately thinks her mark has a cute butt, but is mortified when Grady realizes she is tailing him. Instead of being angry or trying to slip away, Grady invites her to accompany him. As they travel together, they fall in love, but Tori worries because the customer may always be right, but no one will hurt her Grady, not even her............................. This amusing romantic romp is reminiscent of the 1930s screwball comedies. Tori is a terrific protagonist struggling to prove she can be a professional sleuth vs. her growing love for Grady, who is a nice person. The support cast including a feline add dementia to a wild southern Florida tale....................... Harriet Klausner

    Stephanie Plum rip-off

    Like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum serires only it's P.I. work instead of bail bonds. Couldn't finish it. The writing is fine though. 500+ nook pages.

    Ridiculous, over the top humor

    Most of this book was a little too far-fetched for me. I know its meant to be funny but i felt like the author tried too hard. I actually enjoyed the relationship between the supporting characters more than the one between the main characters. Not a bad book, just not my style.

    Just a side note

    There is sex between the characters but it does not go into great detail. Most times you read they kiss and go into the bedroom, next they are cuddled in bed. Not erotica at all.

    Same old same old

    Someone compared this to Janet Evanovich' s books, but I other than a woman heroine, I do not see the simularities. This book is well written and edited. It was also free. I found it predictable and boring. There was some pretty steamy sex. The plot was not very believable. It was rather like two books in one, because of the fuel, brother, sister storyline. Some humor, but it seemed contrived. A little over 500 pages. No murder, or gore. Chick book. Adult readers because of the sex. I wish authors would stop letting it seem as a woman must forgive a man for lies, manlipulation and emotional pain, but if a woman does it, the man can throw a fit, break up with her or whatever and she is oh, so sorry and crawls on bloodied knees if need be. This is wrong on so many levels.
