My Review: 4.4 Star Review - Tall, Dark and Daring Spend a week with an old flame that you got out of your system long ago. Super easy right? You are so over him. Or are you? Not so much when he is set out to seduce you. Resisting is not an option!! At least he is going to make sure it's not!!! What could be hotter then him pulling out all the stops to get you? Are you going to be able to resist? Not a chance!! Love both the characters in the book. Joanne knows how to write sexy hot read.
OMG! I loved this book! Tessa and Mitch's fun banter and sizzling chemistry fire every page hot enough to melt the snow off its Adirondack Mountain setting. What a stellar debut year for Joanne Rock with five winner releases already. I'm eagerly checking the calendar for this prolific (and fabulous ) new author's next book!
After assigning her the Mogul Ryders marketing campaign, her Westwood Marketing boss Ines Cordova bets Tessa O'Neal that she cannot stay out of Mitch Ryder's bed for a week. Ines knows it is a sure bet because she has heard enough times how Tessa measures all males against her yardstick, Mitch, her first love. No one including an ex husband and the nice Rob she just ended her engagement to has come close to living up to Tessa¿s memory of Mitch though he deserted her. Tessa plans to do the job and escape Lake Placid, New York with her soul and heart intact because she knows based on what happened eight years ago that Mitch cannot commit. Mitch anticipates sharing sex once they finish his business requirement though he also plans to split as he did once before. However, when he learns she intends to stay for only a week with no sex, he elevates the game of love. Readers will enjoy reading the heated TALL, DARK, AND DARING, a fun second chance at love romance. The story line emits heat through Mitch even as Tessa tries to avoid being burned again. Though readers might not like Mitch¿s cavalier approach to relationships, the audience will agree that Joanne Rock paints a compelling realistic look at modern day coupling. Harriet Klausner
