She has a new life, a new job, and a new, ridiculously hot man is in the picture too. So what's the catch?
Paisley Parker has always been a woman on a mission. When she's named manager of the premier lifestyle club in Ocean City, Maryland, her first task is to hire someone to create a new website for the club.
That's when she meets Calvin Mitchell, who is anything but the computer geek she imagined he would be. Tall, dark, and hotter than the beach on the 4th of July, he agrees to build her website, but he's
bent on building something else, too: a serious relationship.
Relationships aren't Paisley's style, no matter how hot he is. But when her past comes back to haunt her, Calvin seems like the only port in the storm. When he sacrifices his own safety to help her, she can't help but wonder...
Is he the catch she didn't even know she was fishing for?

The Catch (The Eastern Shore Swingers #2) by Phoebe Alexander was a fun, light heart read that had me hooked from start to finish. Not my first read by this author or in this series, just so you know, these book read as standalones, so no worries about reading out of order, like, I have been doing..haha.. Anyways, like the other books in this series, its full of fun, sassy witty humor, some kick in the feels drama and of course, hot sexy smut. In this book we follow Paisley, and her journey to self acceptance, learning it's okay to love and be loved and dealing with a past she rather forget. I have to tell you that, I really like Paisley as the lead MC. She's a mature woman that has some immature tendencies. Strong, smart and not seeing the great storm that she is, we get to witness her ups, downs, and of course, putting a, to her, a shameful past to rest. Calvin was the perfect match for her. Age is but a number, (over 18 that is), I get her worrying about the age difference, but sometimes, it isn't the age that's the problem, and Calvin was out to prove that to Paisley. I loved them, and they got all the good feels going, and then there was the... smut.. fan please! Overall this book was a great read and, like the other is this series, the writing was smooth, transitions were clean and, the story flowed in a easy cohesive way. I highly recommend you get your hands on not only on this book, but this, fan-freaking-tastic series. Happy Reading -E.A. Walsh
The Catch by Phoebe Alexander is the second book in her Eastern Shore Swingers Series and it just keeps getting better and better. Following the story of the secret club for those who like a taste of darkness with their nightlife, and this is where we find our main characters Paisley Parker and Calvin Mitchell. Paisley is new to Ocean City and loves working for the club, but didn’t realize just how much the club awakes something inside of her. There is a confidence booster that comes when she walks into the club, and the stares that she gets from the male patrons just makes her feel even sexier. When Paisley meets a man that is going to want everything from her, her heart and her history, will she be able to resist the temptation to lean on someone other than herself? Calvin is an all-around good guy, business owner, smart and hot as all get out. When he starts to pursue Paisley he isn’t shy about his intensions or about his ability to win over her body to get to her heart. The more that Paisley attempts to push him away the more that he stays with her, determined to get the girl that took his breathe away. When Paisley’s past comes back to get to her, she finds that he turns to Calvin for help and he is willing to risk it all to keep her safe. Is there a future in the cards for these two wounded lovers? Will Calvin be able to prove to Paisley that he is in this for the long haul? Can she trust him enough to fall for him? Alexander really knows how to pack a punch with this book! Her characters and storyline will pull you in from the very beginning and you will find yourself unable to get over these two long after the book ends. While this book can be read as a standalone I totally recommend reading the book in series order, as characters from other books do make cameo appearances. Plus you can never have too many books! I can’t wait to see how this series continues to grow!
I give The Catch (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 2) by Phoebe Alexander, 5 stars. Paisley is now the manager of a lifestyle club in Ocean City, Maryland. She is new here, but she feels like she was meant for this job. She doesn't really have too many friends, but the owners and other employees are very nice. They seem to trust her. When they assign her to have a website made for the club, this will change everything. Calvin is the owner of a website development company who agrees to create site for Paisley. It isn't really his lifestyle, but it is something new a different from what he normally does. Plus it means that he will see this beautiful woman more. But he knows Paisely is hiding behind her strong facade. What is it she's hiding? And will he be able to make her see just how interested he really is? This series is absolutely wonderful! The second book in the series, your favorite characters return, along with new ones you will never forget. As is usual with this author's books, she mixes love, sex, humor and suspense into an intoxicating story that will leave you wanting more. This book fits right into the series and I highly recommend reading book one because it is also so good, but this book can be read as a standalone. Once you read this, you will want too see more of Paisley and Calvin as much as I do. If you like steamy, fun books and have an open mind of the swinging lifestyle, this book (and series) is for you!
The Catch (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 2) by Phoebe Alexander 5+++ Stars First, What can I say about this author that I haven't already said or that hasn't already been said about her to stress just how much I appreciate her and absolutely love reading her words? She is amazing, awesome, brilliant, and every other positive descriptive word there is and one of the reasons for this is...this series deals with a lifestyle and lifestyles that I truly have no interest in knowing more about, I have no problem with any of them it's just not for me and some of the subjects that Phoebe writes about normally do not keep my interest and I find my mind wandering instead of focussing on the reading..So with that said, in answer to what can I say about this author it is simple...She's a flipping genius because I open these book full of these stories and i'm lost in her world till the very last word is read. How she does this I have no clue but my appreciation for her goes way way beyond words.. So now on to this story...I loved and completely understood and could relate with Paisley in this book to a point. I wish in my past I could have had half her strength and just a touch of her self esteem...She is awesome and has become one of my favorite leading ladies. Then there's Calvin, sigh…… Again...another reason I loved this and most of this authors books is because you could actually see yourself being friends with the characters she writes because they are so so real, with real emotions and real struggles and I love this. I loved the mystery and suspense in this story and some scenes were off the charts holy moly give me a bucket of ice water stat moments and I loved seeing Leah and Cap and check in on their continuing story… I have so completely read these books out of order and that's something I just have to work on but it in no way got in the way of each individual book...I love them all but I think down deep this one might just be my favorite of this series so far. Thank you once again Miss Alexander :)
I just finished The Catch by Phoebe Alexander, this is a spin-off of Ms. Alexander’s book Fisher of Men. We get a glimpse into what happened with Leah and Cap’s story while also being introduced to Paisley Parker. Paisley is a former BBW Burlesque dancer who has moved to Ocean City to be the assistant operations manager at the swinger club, The Factory. One of Paisley’s first tasks is get a website for the club while not making it overtly obvious what happens at The Factory so as not to bring too much attention in the small tourist town. Paisley then meets the incredible hot, younger computer geek Calvin Harris. Paisley feels the attraction immediately but feels there are just too many obstacles in their way, the main one being that he is not into the lifestyle. As Paisley struggles with her attraction to Calvin and what he wants her past also rears its ugly head and comes back to haunt her, forcing her to work closer with Calvin to find out who is out to ruin her while bringing their attraction even more to the forefront. I love Ms. Alexander’s writing style. I laughed and cried through this book and while I may not be a huge fan of threesomes I love the way she wrote the various sex scenes that deal with that. The hottest scene for me though was the one on one scene. The twists and turns in this story were incredible and I was not able to guess where the story line was going before it got there. I love when stories keep me guessing and don’t follow the mold that so many stories seem to follow these days. I was provided a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Hot, hot, HOT!! Ms Alexander has done it again! In this follow up to her novel "Fisher of Men", we catch up with characters Cap and Leah - who now run a lifestyle club for swingers near Ocean City, MD. They hire a new member of their management team, Paisley Parker, who has experience in the lifestyle, which is evident in the several super steamy scenes of this book. Paisley is first tasked with getting the club on the World Wide Web- and hires one uber sexy tech guru named Calvin. Sparks fly, but Paisley's past may catch up with her and keep her from a happily ever after that she has only recently realized she wanted. This is a can't-put-down book, between some really hot sex scenes and a great storyline. Truly the authors' best work to date. If chapter nine doesn't make your girly bits tingle, you need to check your pulse!
