Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the second in a triology - following Logan who is a hard working public defender trying to avoid his father (a well connected judge) and his father's plans for his life. Logan doesn't want to run for political office and what better way to end his public career than to be involved in a scandal. Enter logan's sweet grandmother- who just happens to have the perfect woman for Logan--Cat, the owner of a catering company that has a shady past.
Cat and her company are hired to cater a party. Cat and Logan are thrown together by his grandmother and they have immediate chemistry. At first, Logan plans to use her but he quickly finds out that she is someone special. With some not so subtle help from his grandmother, Cat and Logan end up together.
I liked that Cat's sister and brother in law (stars of the first book) were kept in this and it introduced Grace (logan's sister) who will soon have a book of her own.
Simply Scandalous is a good book with fun characters, but be sure to read the first book before this to get the full background of the sister's story/family as it is not explained in this second novel.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought the three books of this trilogy all at one time. I'm sorry, but I wish that I had read at least one before I bought all of them. I could hardly read through parts of these books because they were so trite.
There were passages where Carly Phillips really grabbed my attention with her style. But the plots were just so boring. Also there were more sexual passages than I felt it needed. I felt it almost concentrated more on the sexual passages(for frustrated housewives?) rather than using the sex scenes to enhance the romance.
I don't know. Maybe it is just me. This was the kind of book I probably could have enjoyed in maybe my very early 20's.
If you are a mature woman (over 35) who has any semblance of depth - pass on this trio.

I'm jealous! This guy has a house at the beach!
Logan Montgomery- public defender and son of a prominent judge, could be the poster boy for Sinatra's "I Did It My Way." Shunning the family mansion for an uncluttered beach cabin, a lucrative position with a prestigious Boston law firm for a public defender's job, the glamour of the bright lights political public office for the simple life.
Catherine Logan - 1/2 owner of Pot Luck (w/sister Kayla from "Simply Sinful"). Remember Cat? She's the one who turned into a virtual hellcat, with the fangs and claws, if anyone so much as looked cross-eyed at her sister. Given what I'd read of Cat previously, her tamed portrayal in "Simply Scandalous" came as a big surprise. But then, one could attribute it to the power of love.
Catherine is nothing like the glamour woman people would expect on the arm of Logan Montgomery and perhaps that is her appeal to him. Cat knows she doesn't walk the same social plane as Logan and his family and holds no illusions that, despite Logan's assurances to the contrary, she and him would ever have a future together. He sets out to convince her otherwise, and Cat finds herself falling in love with him. A confrontation with the press at the worst possible time, in the worst possible place, threatens to undermine all that Logan has accomplished in his quest to win Cat's heart, not the least of which is finally standing up to his overbearing, self-centered father. Unfortunately, we are not given a chance to learn much about Logan's mother, only that in the end she helped smooth things over.

Format: Paperback
Caterer Catherine Luck has had to overcome a scandalous past that she, somehow, can't seem to get away from. Logan Montgomery wants to escape the life his father wants for him, and his meddling grandmother somehow sees Catherine as Logan's way out.
During a party, Logan and Catherine are instantly attracted to each other, but Catherine keeps in mind that she is here to serve people like Logan. Logan's grandma, however, works it out by locking them together and when they finally are able to get out, it is raining infernally and Catherine must stay at Logan's house.
Little by little Catherine discovers that Logan is his own person, not a stereotypical, shallow rich guy, but just as she is falling in love with him, grandma's original plan to derail Logan's father's plans for his son works like a charm, and Catherine is left, hurt, humiliated, and angry.
Like every Blaze book out there, this is a steamy story, lots of sexual tension and hot love scenes. I liked both hero and heroine, although the "I can make your dreams come true" line sounds a little condescending to me. Catherine starts out being a little too influenced by her hormones, and not listening to her brain, but in the end, this is a good read that I can recommend.

I enjoyed "Simply Scandalous", just because I like romance books. The love scenes were hot, but not on fire. The storyline was interesting, but very fast. Although the main characters, Logan Montgomery and Catherine Luck, were both intensely attracted to one another, I felt that their love story just shot off (excuse the pun) with out warning. This book probably would fit more into Harlequin Romance Present line of books.

If you're like me and just like to read romance novels, you will probably enjoy this one too. Just do not expect anything special from this book. The storyline follows the general formula of romance novels: the very attractive rich hero and the beautiful, decent heroine who after some semblance of resistance, falls in love. Although I must say there is a bit of a difference to the hero (Logan Montgomery) and how he deals with his family's wealth. I can't say more, or else I will spoil the story for those who are interested in reading this book.

I normally enjoy Carly Phillips novels and did like reading this book. And I must give credit to Carly Phillips as an author, because she writes novels for people like me to enjoy. Writing is a great talent in itself, but I cannot give this book, "Simply Scandalous" more than 3 stars. It is what it is - A simple romance story.
