Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

After the U.S. president-elect dies during sex with a hooker at the high-class residence where Emma Jamison is working as a butler, her world falls apart. Fleeing the premises in a state of undress, Emma gets tabbed by the media as the hooker involved, which she isn't, and is further victimized by a Secret Service coverup. Broke and disgraced, she takes a housekeeping job at her grandmother's retirement home in the small town of Chartreuse, La., where she's determined to lead an obscure and blameless life. But Emma hasn't counted on her outrageous grandmother's sexual shenanigans with a handsome Alzheimer's patient; on her own attraction to the man's grandson, local district attorney Max Duval; or on an ambitious young reporter dogging her trail. Despite the saucy premise, Wells's (The Babe Magnet) madcap and enjoyable romantic comedy is only mildly spicy. (Feb.)

About the Author

Robin Wells lives outside of New Orleans, LA

More About the Author

Before becoming a full-time writer, Robin Wells was an advertising and public relations executive, but she always dreamed of writing novels--a dream inspired by a grandmother who told "hot tales" and parents who were both librarians.

When she sold her first novel, her family celebrated at a Chinese restaurant. Robin's fortune cookie read "Romance moves you in a new direction"--and it has. Robin has won the RWA Golden Heart Award, two National Readers' Choice Awards, the Holt Medallion, and CRW's Award of Excellence.

Robin lives just outside New Orleans with her husband, two daughters and an exceedingly spoiled dog named Winnie The Pooh-dle.

She loves to hear from readers, so drop her a note on-line at robinwells.com or by writing her at P.O. Box 303, Mandeville, LA 70470-0303.

Between The Sheets is sexy, funny and romantic.

It was a good love story with likeable characters, a good story line, lots of humor, a Happily Ever After and was very well written.

I loved Emma and felt so badly for everything that she goes through.

Emma Jamison never set out to be famous. All she wanted was to maintain her own temporary-butler service and once she meets Mr. Right marry and have kids. That's not too much to ask, is it? Apparently it is, but her last job lands her as the face of the woman who's `services' caused the fatal heart-attack that ended the president-elect's life. Never mind that she never even met the man.

Emma was simply doing her job as a temporary butler when the president-elect along with his secret service staff arrived at the Mullendorf estate. She stayed cloistered in the kitchen rechecking the inventory while Ferguson and his call girl were hustled up the back stairway. She heard the banging from above stairs and thought that something was wrong with the water heater but with a secret service agent ensuring she stayed out of the way, she quickly realizes just what the squeaking means and is very uncomfortable with the situation because she knows Ferguson's wife is out of town.

As luck would have it one of the buttons pops off her dress just as she's preparing to leave and she tries to repair the damage with a safety pin. Seconds later there's apparently an emergency because she's practically ejected from the house, with her dress gaping open. The photographers waiting outside take pictures of her leaving and it isn't until later that evening that she learns what happened.

Nobody believes she's innocent - and she exhausts all her assets trying to prove that she wasn't the woman with Ferguson. Left with few options, Emma makes the move to Chartreuse, Louisiana while praying for a fresh start.

D.A. Max Duveal is running for a second term in office and scandal is something he definitely can't afford. That doesn't stop him from taking a shine to Emma.

I requested this book from the publisher on the Kindle months ago even though I had read it in paperback before I got my Kindle...it was that good. My hope was that the author would publish future books on here and I see she has. This was so laugh out loud funny that I had to post a review via my Kindle when I saw it was finally available. Good girl gets mistaken for a Monica Lewinski but worse. Highly highly recommend and at this price I plan to buy another copy rather than search for my old one. A keeper. And an author to watch if you like romantic comedy. Do yourself a favor and buy this book.

I was excited to get this book from my local library since reading all the great reviews here, but unfortunately my opinion differs -- a lot. I found the book to be SLOW paced and way too drawn out. Sure it had some funny parts, but not much else to make up for the tedium of 382 pages that should have been edited down to at the most 250. It really was not a bad book just predictable and average.

I was so excited to read a new Robin Wells book. I love her writing and Between the Sheets may just be her best. The heroine is very likeable and someone the reader cares about. The hero is dreamy and heroic and romantic, etc. etc. The cast of other characters are fun and add so much to the story. It's a great story with depth and emotion and humor throughout. Grams and Harold are wonderful and funny and wise. I don't know what more I can say. It was perfect. It met all my standards for an excellent romance. I am glad Wells is writing again. How soon can she get another on the shelves?

Highly recommend.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
chadenfreude. My favorite word. Oh, how I derive joy from the misery of others. And by 'misery,' I mean the "you brought this on yourself, you horny bastard" variety, not poverty or hunger.

So I looked forward to reading this book, because it offers an element of schadenfreude. Emma Jamison is a butler. She owns her own temporary butler business providing butler services to those who need it. Hired to work one weekend at a New Orleans mansion whose owners are out of town, she watches as the guest coming to visit is the President-elect. He does not come alone. With him is a lady-for-hire, whose services are provided with such gusto that the man is left dead. Literally.

Unfortunately for Emma, the press believes she is the woman providing the sexy times, and Emma's life is, effectively, ruined. Her reputation is down the toilet, she loses her business, and she loses considerable sums of money in an attempt to prove that another woman was present.

She winds up in a small Louisiana town, where she works as a housekeeping director at the "retirement home" where her grandmother lives. Grams meets Harold, a hot octogenarian with Alzheimer's, and the two strike up a (very ... wink wink) close friendship. Emma, meanwhile, meets Harold's grandson Max, who is running for District Attorney. The last thing Max needs during an election year is getting linked to Emma Jamison, the woman who supposedly killed a President.

Emma and Max like each other. A LOT. But she is leery of getting too close, mostly out of fear of ruining his reputation, and he is leery of not getting close enough. He wants to be with her, even if it means losing the election.
