    The title says it all!!!

    When sex therapist Dylan Fairbanks gets his hotel room numbers mixed up, and goes into the room of one Grace Mattias, and stands slackjawed as he sees her showering, how can he put that beautiful image out of his mind when he finds himself paired with her on his book tour? Grace has a book out that is completely opposite all of Dylan¿s views, and it irritates him that for his every comment of abstinence before marriage, she counters with claims that one must test the compatibility in bed before taking that final step. Her free-thinking views on relationships and sex have him gritting his teeth. Or¿ is it her stunning body that he¿s had an eyeful of? The chemistry between the two is a pure mixture of physical desire and lust, and it doesn¿t take long for the formula to combust in a fireball of passion. Dylan¿s nearly engaged, and is so confused when the things he feels for ¿Gracie¿ are beyond anything he¿s ever felt for his near fiancée. Can he put aside his convictions for a chance at exploring this newfound, exciting path his heart is leading him on? And will Grace let Dylan into her life enough for him to see that her ¿sex as fun¿ attitude might not be her only view on the subject? Dylan has fought all his life to become a responsible adult when it comes to everything from schooling to sex, while Grace is a proponent of the opposite; She¿s struggled against her parent¿s staunch, ¿proper¿ views to become a free spirit, and her own person. Can Dylan convince Grace that the idea of marriage, though traditional, isn¿t the end of her independence? And Can Grace keep both Dylan and her integrity if she lets her heart become her guide? We see a man who begins to change from the rigid advocate to a man possessed by the feelings that this woman brings out in him. And Grace is a woman who loves with everything she is, but her saucy attitude, and liberal beliefs guard her from heartache. Author Tori Carrington has certainly put the Sexy in YOU SEXY THING. The story is rife with sexual tension, and the plot makes one wonder if his or her way of thinking is the only way. Both Dylan and Grace mature in their perspectives of the opposition. Their overwhelming attraction for each other throws them into a tailspin, and they may have only each other to cling to as together, they learn to accept what they can¿t change, and to better what they can. YOU SEXY THING is a stimulating read from start to finish. The tension starts and you can¿t help but turn the page to relieve it, only to scale another slope of excitement! A definite fun filled ride! A wonderful story that deals with serious issues of casual or committed sex, but keeps the reader enthralled!

    Tori Carrington sets Blaze on fire!

    Dr. Dylan Fairbanks is distracted. Frustrated that he can't get his card key to work on his hotel room door, he enlists the aid of a nearby housekeeper. Alas, there's a reason the key wouldn't work; its NOT his room. Instead, it belongs to one Dr. Grace Mattias, aka Dr. Hottie -- who just so happens to be taking a shower without the curtain closed. Dylan quickly exits before he swallows his tongue. The encounter doesn't bode well for his four-year state of celibacy. Neither does the fact that Dylan's PR person and Grace's PR person think it would be a hoot to pair these two up for their upcoming book tour. How ever will Dylan survive his gorgeous rival? Dr. Grace Mattias is shocked to see that her co-speaker on a local talk show is the same peeping Tom who walked in on her showering earlier that day. But, Grace is a trooper and Dr. Dylan is the epitome of a hunk, even if he is set in his concept of marriage before sex. Grace is more of a free spirit and sets out to loosen up the stuffy Dr. Fairbanks. These two sex therapists from different sides of the fence burn up the pages of YOU SEXY THING!. Free-spirited, communal living parents and a disaster of a first marriage turn Dylan Fairbanks into the serious, celibate person he is. His total opposite, Grace Mattias puts up a convincing front as the doctor who believes in free, albeit protected, sex, promoting it with a vengeance. Nobody needs to know that her information comes from some eight-hundred case studies instead of personal experience. Dylan's parents are hilarious, his mother more grounded than Dylan thought possible. Grace's parents are highly conservative and the scene where her mother approaches Grace for sexual advice is priceless. YOU SEXY THING! is pure fun, flowing seamlessly from one conflict filled scene to the next. I laughed out loud at many of Dylan's inner thoughts about Grace and where they led. How on earth can he stick to his principles around Dr. Hottie?? Grace sure doesn't make it easy for him. Dialogue is filled with innuendo and sexual tension runs hot and heavy. Be sure to have asbestos gloves, a bucket of ice water, and your significant other nearby as you race through the pages of this fast-paced , hotter than hot, highly entertaining book. This was my first read by Tori Carrington and certainly not my last!
