Overview

Jocelyn Pearson is determined to spend her last month as a twenty-something doing everything she's too busy or scared to try. Her imagination runs wild and then fixates on Ian Baird. He'll be working at the Langston Museum for a short stint as a consulting curator. He's Scottish. He believes sex is fun to be had. He's the perfect choice for a fling. She only has to get him break his rule about sleeping with co-workers. Seducing a man was on her bucket list...

Ian is no one's fool and knows exactly what Jocelyn wants--him. If she didn't work for the Langston Museum, he'd be more than happy to oblige any and every fantasy she desired, but she's the curator. She's sweet, inexperienced and well liked by everyone including the museum owner and director. Ian can't risk losing such an important contact for his consulting business. Not even when everything within in him craves a taste of her.

When Jocelyn sets her sights on him, there's no way Ian can deny her. They agree their affair will end in thirty days. No emotions, no entanglements, just sex. The closer the end date looms, they start to question if it's possible to walk away. They'll either have to come to terms of what they've become or stick to their original agreement.

I didn't know it was possible to feel such wide range of emotions over a short period of time, but Under His Kilt had me hating, loving and feeling sorry for Joce and Ian, as well as sighing and swooning, hot and bothered and panting and fanning myself!

It is a pleasure to read a book that is well written. Reading is my entertainment, so I read a lot and too many times the writer just repeats the same angst -y back and forth between the characters chapter after chapter...you know the "I love you but I'm not good enough for you" so, I'll walk away...but, I love you, so I'll stay...no wait, I'm not good enough... If you hate that as much as I do, then you will be pleasantly surprised with Melissa Blue's book. It's about two people who have emotional scars and are afraid to take a chance so, they convince themselves that they can have a no strings attached affair and just walk away when the time comes. (I don't do spoilers ) I loved the characters and the flow of the story, if you are looking for a good romance then pick up your copy today...hey and the first in the series is free!

Jocelyn wants to do several things on her bucket list before her 30th birthday. She has always wanted to seduce a man and Ian Baird is the perfect one to seduce. He is working at the museum with her for a short wall and his Scottish ways make him irresistible. She knows it will be short term and she has to get him to let go of the no sleeping with co workers rule. Ian has always wanted Jocelyn but doesn't like to cross the line. With her setting the rules he agrees to a no strings attached fling. He will fulfill her fantasies as long as she knows he will be leaving soon. They both have no problems in the bedroom but start to have problems outside when they become closer than they wanted. They have to see where it will go or walk away. Jocelyn is a smart, sexy hardworker who has spent her life working towards her goals and not really living. She is sweet and always willing to help others. She hides what she is feeling sometimes. I liked her as she becomes a different person around Ian and her true self shows through. Ian ia the sexy Scot that any woman would want. He has some skills. I like him as he seem to not understand sometimes how to act with Jocelyn and he doesn't like to hold things in. Oh and him with a puppy will just melt your heart. They are both amazing characters. Starting out as friends with benefits and becoming more I loved this book. You see how in this case Jocelyn doesn't cross the line and want more from Ian. She holds up to her end of the bargain and at times makes Ian mad. He wakes up a few times to see she has left with no notice. I love the interaction between the two and how they can;t keep their hands off each other. This book is very hot but has a good plot as well.  If you love a hot romantic story be sure to read this one. It will please many and make you want your own Scot.

Those three combinations are what I love about books. It was short for an afternoon quicky. It was Smoking Hot in capital letter!!! Yummmmm. It was Smart! There was no whining, no angst, no misconstrued idea. Just a stunning sexy smart romance.

As a reader obsessed with heroes with accents I found myself drawn to Scotsman Ian and his damaged heart that has him fighting his intense feelings for the sweet-natured Jocelyn and her naughty fantasies just waiting to be fulfilled in this super steamy story. Fans of erotica will find all the hot and sweaty sexual encounters they can handle in this short yet satisfyingly sensual read with a nice dose of angst thrown into the storyline as well. With its fast pace and slowly yet steadily building relationship it's an enticing journey watching Ian and Jocelyn fight their attraction and their inevitable HEA that's apparent to us long before they figure it out in a battle of wills. Ian's view of marriage and commitment has been tainted by his parent's unhappy marriage that kept his mother traveling non-stop. He doesn't want a woman to go through what his dad did, sitting home alone waiting for their loved one to return. He admits his casual relationships just for sex make him an ass but at least he's honest. Until now he could always walk away, but there's something about Joce that calls to him and arouses feelings of jealousy. He wants more from her, something long-term that he'll have to fight for in an ending that kept me on the edge of my seat to see who would admit their true feelings first. In his heart Ian was like a little boy sometimes in his desire to be loved. He loved home cooked meals and waking up beside someone every morning but it was something he never thought could happen and I ached for his sadness. Seeing him with Joce showed a more carefree man who I was drawn to. Jocelyn has always done the right thing, been the good girl. On the eve of her thirtieth birthday she realizes that she hasn't really been living and sets out to do all those naughty fantasies and more.....with Ian. She knows there's mutual attraction between them and the sexual tension sizzling between them is blatantly apparent and has her goading him into being her sexual guide. She's aware of his rules and it's a constant struggle to not let herself get carried away with him. That's why it's a shock when he starts acting more like a boyfriend in heartwarmingly mundane scenes like buying a puppy. As their time together comes to an end their lovemaking becomes more frantic and intimate and the one thing always forbidden, a kiss, consumes them like air and throws their futures completely off kilter. This was a straightforward story mostly about sex that didn't leave much room for more, but with a surprising amount of emotions and heart. Silly misunderstandings kept these two likable characters from their HEA and let fear hold them back but together they've finally started to live. This was an enticing story from start to finish and I recommend it to those wanting a fantasy of their own.

A hot Scot and some down and dirty sex. Don't read if you have a problem with language. A decent read and though a novella, it didn't seem short

Very sexy but no plot no intrigue and no suspense . This author 's writing is a bit on the juvenile style

Loved the writing style, the dialog and the characters. A short read with some hotness and a happy ending, just what you want in a good romance. Well written, I've already downloaded other books by this author and will continue to look for her books.

We all find one birthday that just kind of hits us smack in the face. Jocelyn’s “aha” moment came when she realized she was turning thirty and is determined to get a little wild and crazy before-hand. As a brilliant assistant at a well-known museum, finding excitement can be a little tough. Enter Scottish Ian Baird, a consulting museum curator. Number one on her bucket list was seducing a man and well, Ian was definitely a man, let the games begin! Let’s just say that Jocelyn may be out of her league, sexually, but can the sweet Jocelyn seduce this handsome and charming man or will he prove too much to handle? Under His Kilt by Melissa Blue is smoking hot, full of witty dialogue and the charm of two people skating around the emotional and physical avalanche of love, lust and ancient artifacts. Ms. Blue has created two likable characters that make bucket lists sound like sizzling fun!
