When he got his girlfriend pregnant Brady Weston married her and left town and the family owned business. Even though she lost the baby he stayed with her and became a successful Dallas ad exec. Eleven years later he returns to town stinging from his ex-wife saying she left him because he couldn't satisfy her sexually. Eden Hallsy has the reputation of being a bad girl even though it's not true. Brady decides she's the one to prove he can satisfy a woman. A good plot and both Brady and Eden were likeable people. I rated this a three, first, because of inconsistencies in the book. First Brady had vivid blue eyes, then soft brown, then back to vivid blue. He had a one room efficiency yet his bed was in another room. His apartment was sparsely decorated. Then it was expensively decorated yet the clock and a lamp are made from hubcaps? Worse than that was the editing. Paragraphs not indented, incorrect spacing, mispelling, words and letters missing, typos. It was so distracting I couldn't really enjoy the book.
He left Cadillac, Texas seeking a better life. Brady Weston became a very successful ad executive in Dallas. He married, but his personal life failed and now as she leaves him, his wife informed him as that he never gave her sexual satisfaction. Battered and bruised because he always felt he was a good lover, Brady goes back to the nest to heal from the divorce and his apparent lack of sexual prowess. In Cadillac, Brady meets bar owner Eden Hallsy. Back in high school, both had a crush on one another, but did little about it. With her reputation as the town¿s ¿bad girl¿ and his desire and dreams about her, Brady decides she is the perfect person to prove at least to him that he is a caring competent lover. Eden is willing to share the sheets, but it hurts her that the one man she always lusted after thinks he can bed her because of her image and if she goes with libido over pride how will she survive when he returns to the big city without her? THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE is a torrid romantic romp for fans that like sweltering temperatures. Some readers will not like the concept of a male needing to prove his sexual abilities, but the charming lead couple takes the edge off that theme with quirky humor and an erotic sharing of love. Kimberly Raye lives up to the imprint with this blazing tale that gives much pleasure to its audience. Harriet Klausner
