Book Description

No Dress Required by Cari Quinn

After years of ho-hum dating, Noelle Gregory is tired of fooling around. There’s only ever been one guy for her—Jake Conroy, her best friend’s older brother. Now that Jake’s back in town, she’s headed to his sister’s New Year’s Eve party to make her move. Purse full of condoms? Check. Sparkly dress guaranteed to show Jake the sexy woman she’s become? Check. Carjacker that makes off with both two hours before the party? Check. When Jake finds Noelle stranded on the side of the road—looking sexier than ever in her striped socks and silly holiday shirt, damn it—he’s glad for the snowstorm that cancels his sister’s party. His and Noelle’s friendship has tormented him for years, and now, Jake wonders if he should dare to sample what he’s always wanted…and if he’ll be able to walk away when it’s over.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and romantic December 28, 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is my first experience with Cari Quinn's writing, but it won't be my last. "No Dress Required" starts out funny and a bit snarky, turns sexy in a hurry, and ends up being sweet and romantic. There's never much doubt that Nellie will get her man in the end, but it's still fun to watch it happen. The writing's flawless, the characters are real and endearing, and the sex is hot. What more could you ask for?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Enjoyable January 1, 2012
    By P. Phan
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Author Cari Quinn has written another great book, No Dress Required. The dialogue between the two main characters, Nellie and Jake, was flawless and so much fun to read. I loved the character development and their back story. Nellie has always loved Jake, her best friend's brother, but he has always treated her like a sister as well as being in a long-term relationship. Now, Jake no longer has a girlfriend and Nellie is determined to seduce him at his sister's party. She goes out to buy a "knock-out" dress as part of her plan but ends up being carjacked with her dress inside. Jake comes upon the scene and jealousy and misunderstanding begins to unfold. This scene had me smiling the whole time and this was just the beginning chapter. Acknowledging they both wanted each other, they set out to have sex and those scenes were so much fun and I enjoyed them tremendously. I loved this book with it's sharp and witty dialogue and the interaction of the main and supporting characters.

    5.0 out of 5 stars No Dress Required - short sexy romantic story April 20, 2012
    By Kathy L
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This was my first by Cari Quinn. This short story was a funny, sexy and attention grabber from the beginning. Nothing worse than having your car stolen. I always love the stories about being in love with your best friend's older brother and finding out the feelings were mutual. This is Noelle and Jake's story. It was adorable and a fun read.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Hot, Sexy and Hilarious August 30, 2012
    By Amelia
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book is HOT and SEXY! From the first kiss Noelle and Jake share right there on the sidewalk, all the way up to the cabin, on the couch (which I too think should be bronzed), to the gym in the basement and then the day after in the guest room.

    It's also HILARIOUS! Shirt with bunnies with cotton tails to clingwrap and butter. Thanks Cari, I don't think I'll look at clingwrap quite the same way again :)

    It's also where Jake is one of the most intuitive guys I've read so far. Which was a pleasant surprise. He reads Noelle's actions and responses and gets right to the point leaving no room for guessing games. I like that about him. And he does this in a not-quite-Alpha-but-still-sexy-and endearing-sort of way. That's why Jake is the latest addition to my Fictional Men Harem.

    Not 5 stars because I was just getting to the good part and it's the last page already! I need more Noelle and Jake!

    Love this book!!!

    Onwards to No Flowers Required - YAY!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Cute little story. July 27, 2012
    By C.
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I liked this story. It was cute and short, though I wished it was a little longer. I loved the relationship between the characters and their history together. I liked that they ended up together but I wished I could have seen where they went from there. Maybe an epilogue? All in all, I would tell a friend about this quick read that really left me thinking "awee".

    5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully sexy story July 7, 2012
    By Freya
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is a fun, sexy, steamy story in a small package. Entangled Flirts are long short stories meant as a quick read, and this one certainly packs emotion, fun and passion into its pages. I loved the characters, and the storyline was such fun. It's a bargain at 99 cents, and I absolutely recommend for anyone who wants a fun, sexy, short read.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A great story June 19, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Cari Quinn has created a stellar friends to lovers story.

    This is a perfectly-crafted novella that packs a big punch. I actually read "No Dress Required" while I was waiting on my daughter to finish ballet rehearsals. Can you say, "busy mommy loves novellas?" ;)

    I really enjoy a friends to lovers story. Jake and Noelle are sweet, charming and delightful. There were parts of this story that had me laughing out loud. The writing is passionate and provocative. The characters and dialogue are witty and real.

    "No Dress Required" is a wonderful mix of realism, humor, heat and romance.

    Quinn never disappoints.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Love Required Book 1 October 28, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by PussyWillow

    4 out of 5 Licks

    I have to say I Love the covers of these books!

    This is a great series, Cari's writing style makes the characters seem so accessible and you get the feeling you know them. They all have great wit and humor in the dialog.

    The first book, No Dress Required; maybe the shortest of the books, but it is a great quick read that leaves you satisfied that you read a complete story. I loved the build up of the chemistry between Noelle and Jake and when they do finally come together it is super sexy! This is a fun story, even the car jacking at the beginning had me laughing as she was trying to talk the thief out of taking her car and the part about using cling wrap. It is a sweet story too of friends coming together and falling in love.

    Highly recommend this series, all books are well written, they can be read together or as stand alones.

    Awful. Just awful. The premise/blurb sounded cute but the story was just - off. I didn't believe the chemistry between them and it just seemed awkward and weird. Don't bother.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good Story
    I gave this book a 4 instead of a 5 only because it was to short. I felt it could have gone into more detail. But the storyline was good and the erotic scenes were great.

    More About the Author

    USA TODAY bestselling author Cari Quinn wrote her first story--a bible parable--in 2nd grade, much to the delight of the nuns at her Catholic school. Once she saw the warm reception that first tale garnered, she was hooked. She attempted her first romance in junior high, long before she'd ever read one. Writing what she knew always took a backseat to what she wanted to know, and that still holds true today.

    Though she also fires up her computer as a graphic designer, proofreader and editor, she can't resist the lure of disappearing into a world of her own creation. Now she gets to pen sexy romances for a living and routinely counts her lucky stars.

    The only thing she loves more than writing is hearing from readers! Please contact her through one of the ways below.
