Tall. Dark. Dazzlingly deceptive. Until they wise up, the Gibson women always fall for a certain kind of man.

This time it's Mia's vulnerable sister who is hurting, which is why Mia has a plan:

1. Bring Tabitha to Hilton Head
2. Learn the smooth-talker's identity
3. Grind his gonads into dust as fine as the island's sands

But the challenge proves unexpectedly complex and soon Mia is brushing up against a powerful and potentially dangerous local figure that she can't defeat without help.

Enter Jackson, if that's even his real name, whom she meets under shady andinconveniently intimate circumstances. When he offers aid, can Mia trust a proven liar? Her heart whispers yes. But as peril draws near, if Mia's heart has grown no wiser than her sister's, the consequences could prove fatal.

For fans of lighthearted romantic-suspense in the vein of Rachel Gibson or Jennifer Crusie. See why Kirkus Reviews said, "The shenanigans are lots of fun, and the overall lack of realism doesn't diminish the sheer enjoyment that they deliver. A delightfully silly and unpretentious ride."

This story starts with a bang, and the action does get heavy. This plot is insane but it is a lot of fun. Mia attracts the wrong kind of guys, and Jackson although he is good guy. He's the wrong kind of guy for Mia to settle down with. At least while the relationship lasts, the ride will be wild.

I thoroughly enjoyed this latest offering by Jan O’Hara. Smart and well-written, this blend of mystery and romance was a delightful read. A solid story with interesting plot twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end! I loved the fact that that the book had believable characters and featured O’Hara’s signature sense of humor. Highly recommended five star read.

5 stars I received a free copy of the novel Desperate Times, Desperate Pleasures by Janice O'Hara and this review was given freely. The overdramatic humor and drama of a RomCom merges with suspense and a twisted sting operation in this full length novel with sinister undertones and a hint of steam. The unlucky in love Jack of all trades Mia becomes embroiled in a religious plot of corruption and extortion when her mother enlists her help to discover what her sister Tabitha is hiding. Their plan to steal back a family heirloom starts a domino effect that ends in subterfuge, Mia meeting a man who is not what he portrays, a fake pregnancy, a kidnapping and finally fulfillment of love. Interesting characters along with family and workplace drama combined with a complicated plot make this an interesting and action packed story.
