More About the Author

When I'm not chained to my keyboard writing, I'm enjoying my life with my husband of 25 years and our three daughters. Let me tell you, raising three girls has been way more challenging than publishing fiction!

I write sexy novels for Harlequin, and also write dark romantic thrillers as Leslie A. Kelly. Check out my websites, www.lesliekelly.com and www.leslieAkelly.com

I just read this book on my Blackberry Kindle (getting a real Kindle in a few weeks) and this is one of the best romance novels I have ever read. I have been reading this while sitting behind my desk at work. I started this book at 4:15 p.m and finished at 11:02 p.m. I still cannot believe what a suspenseful page turner this was. I loved the attitude of Jake. Madeline was quite the character as well, thinking Jake was a gigolo. I had to remember I was at work to keep from laughing too loud because there were some funny points here. One of my favorite parts was picking Jake's sister up and she asking Madeline if her ex, Oliver, cheated on her with a man because his name sounded gay. I mean, I do not laugh at gay people, but that was too much, I could no longer contain the laughter. It is rare in these romance books to add such color and personality to the characters, but this author mastered that beautifully. I was still shocked that this book was free because I would have gladly paid $6.99 for that. I hope this author does not stop because this book was too good. If I could rate it more I would, but since we stop at 5, that is what this novel will get. Cannot wait to start a new book, as I am searching the Kindle store now, because I have 50 more minutes at work!

I am not one to read romance novels on a regular basis; however, this book really appealed to me. At times the plot did get convoluted, but as is the nature of romance novels, love is suppose to win out in the end. As for the steaminess of this novel, all I can say is that I may begin reading more romance novels for the passion depicted in this book was deliciously steamy.

This was indeed a good read.

I read this at the beach on an anniversary trip with my husband and it was just perfect. Very quick, sexy, funny and written well. The plot moved at a decent pace and the characters are sweet and believable. I simply thought it was great and rated it 5 stars and it was free to boot! Read it if you like books with hot sex!

I've been downloading free books for the Kindle lately, and after a string of questionable reads, I finally found gold here. I read this book all one sitting the other night.

Maddy Turner's sister, Tabitha, tells her that their step-mother plans to "buy" a gigolo at a charity bachelor auction and cheat on their father with the man. Tabitha convinces Maddy that she must "buy" the man instead. Maddy reluctantly agrees because she loves her father and doesn't want to see him hurt

Jake Wallace, a paramedic, is roped into participating in the bachelor auction to repay a favor. What neither Maddy nor Jake knows is that a mix-up in the bachelor bios has occurred. Maddy (and others) think Jake is the gigolo. Maddy "buys" him out from under her step-mother, then tries to avoid him. But circumstances and other people intervene.

I really liked the characters in this book. Maddy is refreshingly *not* a perfect size 2 blond. Even though she has a lot of (family) money, she has a job and seems to enjoy normal activities like baseball and eating burgers. Jake is a nice guy, too, who is at first offended when he realizes that Maddy thinks he has sex for money. But unlike romance novel heroes who piss me off, he doesn't blow a gasket, accuse her of all kinds of horrible deeds, and make the misunderstanding worse.

I initially worried that this "big misunderstanding" about Jake's line of work would be drawn out past plausibility, but that didn't happen. Jake - as noted above - figures out that there has been a misunderstanding, lets it continue for a while, but then comes clean.

The sex is pretty steamy and fun.

However, the story takes place over only a few weeks, and that is one of the weaknesses.

Despite all the cliche's, ice princess, auctioning off gigolos for charity, and the paramedic with the heart of gold, this book was cute and fun.

The bios and photos of two bachelors are mixed up. One is a blue collar paramedic while the other is a rich jetsetting stockbroker, an expert at pleasuring women.

Maddy, a high powered financier, bid on what she expected to be a stockbroking gigolo and got more than she could handle, an actual honest to goodness boy next door who can smoke the socks off her as if he had the experience of a high paid escort.

Through multiple twists and misunderstandings, as well as plenty of hot action, the score is settled, and the story ends happily. The best part of the book for me was the banter between Maddy and Jake as they talked around the mistaken identity, each hearing what they expected, but saying the exact thing that inadvertently mislead the other. The author did diffuse the tension so that instead of an explosive revelation, the truth came out in private. Not as melodramatic, but more genuine and touching.

Slow Hands by Leslie Kelly isn't the greatest in the genre, but by no means the worst either. The story is as obvious as they come...and the characters are caricatures of romance novels. How many romance novels feature a man that some woman has misconceptions of only to learn differently when the moment is right? Most. It is time to change the channel on them and offer us romance fans something new. So, the plot is predictable, characters are dry, and the writing is uninspiring -- so then what is good about it? The passion. Where some romance novels are more story driven with minimal passion, Slow Hands is carnal in its passion. Isn't that the purpose of the romance genre, anyway? Slow Hands by Leslie Kelly shines in this category, and while it would have been nice to develop a thought-provoking storyline, it just isn't what this book is about. "Hot and steamy" is really all that is needed to review this product.
