Book Description

A Trilogy by Cat Johnson

Bradley Morgan is the quintessential computer geek and nice guy, through and through. The only problem is that in his opinion, nice guys almost always finish last when it comes to hot women like his sexy co-worker Alyssa Jones. But things change after Alyssa finds her boyfriend cheating. Suddenly, nice guys like Brad don't look so bad. So when Brad agrees to ghostwrite the sex scenes for a romance novel as a favor for desperate client Maria White and asks for Alyssa's help after hours, she agrees wholeheartedly and things really start to heat up. Brad and Alyssa learn you should never judge a book by its cover and that sometimes love requires a leap of faith.

Amy Gerald's life is filled with whirlwind romance. Unfortunately, it's all on the pages of the romance novels she publishes. That is until she volunteers to cat-sit for her friend Maria White and meets Troy O'Donnell, the hunky fireman who lives next door. The problem is, this commitment-phobic consummate bachelor is far more willing to run into a burning building than allow love into his life. Troy will grasp at any excuse, even the ridiculous assumption that Amy is a lesbian, just to avoid his growing feelings for her. Amid a comedy of errors and misunderstandings, which includes Troy's first hilarious visit to a gay bar, Amy manages to light Troy's fire, but can she also conquer his fears?

Antonio Sanchez thought that at 32 his life was all mapped out—wife, kids, career—until some major bumps in the road radically alter his course and send him careening right into the path of newly divorced Maddie Morgan. After being thrust back into single life, Antonio moves back in with his old-fashioned parents and has to learn to juggle being a part-time dad to his kids, his job at the firehouse and his role as Best Man for his newly engaged best friend Troy, all in addition to facing his unquenchable desire for Maddie. Throw in a slew of matchmaking friends and relatives, led by Maria whose apartment appears to be the Bermuda Triangle for floundering lovers and Antonio and Maddie discover just how complicated things can get. Can the pair prove that love really is better the second time around?

This book has been previously published. It has been edited for rerelease.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 Fun stories for your enjoyment November 23, 2013
By Remy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a book of three short stories. The stories are connected through characters, and events, but each storyline has an ending. Granted, since the stories are very short, the endings come too fast. At least in the next story you are able to get a brief update on the other couples, which is a good thing. These are brief romance stories and not as erotic as you usually get from this author. What the author did very well, was able to make the characters so likable with fun and interesting plots, that you really are rooting for the couples.
She even takes you into their careers and families. We'll done and once you complete this book, then read Nice&Naughty as it continues with more short love stories about the hot firemen, their loves, friends, and families

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun romantic series November 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
3 short, interconnected stories that all seem to involve accountant/author Maria White.

In Taking a Leap, we meet Brad the Geek and Alyssa with the Sexy Voice. Brad agrees to repair Maria's laptop while she's on
vacation cruise, and has to rewrite a scene from Maria's novel. He enlists Alyssa's help (who's recently single) and from there
love blooms. Ta-da!

In Light My Fire, we meet Maria's first publisher Amy, who's agreed to cat-sit for Maria, who's off on yet another cruise
(how many cruises can one take in a given year?). Anyhoo, Amy meets the hunky firefighter Troy who lives across the hall from
Maria (I must be in the wrong area, the firefighters I see aren't hunky, they're more doughy). Of course they're attracted to each
other, but Troy is slow to pick up on the clues Amy's practically throwing at him. Again by the end love has bloomed. Ta-da!

The last story, Second Time Around focuses on Troy's friend Antonio (recently separated from his wife), and Brad the Hot Geek's
sister Maddie (newly divorced) are introduced at a New Year's Eve party where: Maria White's apartment. After a couple of dates,
they get together, and love blooms. Ta-da!

All in all a cute novella, something I'd probably read again :)

Nothing new and exciting in this trilogy. Stories are OK with nice characters but wouldn't reread and this is usually my standard for a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Whirlwind Romances September 5, 2013
By carmeer
Format:Kindle Edition
This book contains three very sweet short stories in which the characters are linked through marriage and friendship. I really liked all three stories which is very rare for me. Usually in books that contain more than one story, I find at least one of them not to my liking. It has everything a girl could want a sexy computer geek and a couple of hot sexy firemen.

In Taking A Leap, Bradley Morgan is the sexy computer geek who is extremely attracted to his co-worker Alyssa Jones. He takes the opportunity to get closer to her when he asks her to help re-write sex scenes for a client's romance novel.

In Light My Fire, Amy Gerald volunteers to take care of her friends cat and meets her friend's hot sexy firefighter neighbor, Troy O'Donnell. They are both extremely attracted to each other, but due to a series of misunderstandings and fears Troy ends the relationship. However, fate has other plans.

In Second Time Around, recently divorced Antonio Sanchez meets Maddie Morgan who is also recently divorced. Like the characters in the other stories, Antonio and Maddie have a very sweet whirlwind romance.

In total, a very enjoyable book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick, fun, sexy read September 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Opposites Attract is three short, interconnected stories. In "Take a Leap," computer geek Brad is attracted to his co-worker Alyssa, who just happened to breakup with her cheating boyfriend. When Brad has to ghostwrite a sex scene for Maria, a client whose laptop Brad had just fixed, Alyssa volunteers to help. During their work, Alyssa begins to see there is more to Brad than meets the eye. In "Light My Fire," Amy, Maria's friend and former publisher, agrees to cat sit for Maria. While she's staying at Maria's apartment, she meets Maria's hunky firefighter neighbor Troy. Naturally, they are attracted to each other, but a series of misunderstandings almost keeps them from seeing that they're meant for each other. In "Second Time Around," another hunky firefighter Antonio, a friend of Amy and Troy, meets Maddie, Brad's sister. Antonio is on the verge of divorce and Maddie has just went through a terrible divorce. Seeing how attracted they are to each other, Amy, Troy, Brad, Alyssa (who is now married to Brad) and, of course, Maria, decide to play matchmaker. The more Antonio and Maddie get to know each other, the more they become attracted to each other. And as their attraction grows, Antonio makes a decision about his failing marriage and his relationship with Maddie.

I really enjoyed all three stories, but my personal favorite was the third one. I loved how it really included all the characters from previous stories. You're not left wondering what happens to the other characters. I would definitely recommend this book to those who like fun, quick, sexy reads, with not just one happy ending but three.
