This book has it all, hot MCs with sizzling chemistry, great, funny, snarky dialogue, secondary characters I wanna read more about and a dog!! What's not to love.
Everything from Josh and Michael's first encounter to their friends with benefits arrangement is so good an I just wanted to read more about them. Josh being a single parent to his daughter Sasha ( who is adorable) and a K9 handler and Michael a trauma doctor have a dislike/attraction for each other from the start and doesn't think there can be anything more than sex an chemistry between them - let's just say that they are dead wrong.
And just a side note, I want Cameron to have his own book.
Unfortunately the author needed to employ an MUCH better editor. If you are like me, a goof-up in a book takes me out of the story so badly, I have a hard time re-engaging. Some examples of this are:
The American character does not talk like any American I know. He hasn't been in New Zealand long enough for it to have affected his speaking, so it's just poor research on the aurhor's part, and an editor should have noticed. The other Americans in the end also have that problem, and they've never been to New Zealand. (I am American, but I've also spent quite a bit of time in NZ, so I know the difference).
There is a re-run of a basketball game that is played by the Celtics (basketball) and the Cowboys (football!). I couldn't help visualize the Cowboys running around the court in their football pads and helmets. That WOULD be a game you'd want to see rerun! Or, she could have Googled US basketball teams and picked out another team. It would have taken less than a minute. It took me a few pages to get that image out of my head.
The eleven-year-old girl fades in and out of maturity like a butterfly. At first I thought she was five. I was shocked to find she was older. And at one point she is accused of swearing, but I couldn't detect a swear word in what she'd said...??
There are several misused words and mistakes.
An educated doctor would NEVER say 'him and me" instead of "he and I" as the subjects of a sentence. Talk about nails on a blackboard! Ick!
The author seems to confuse the uses for the word "bottom." It means a gay bottom in the context of the book, but she seems to throw in the BDSM version too, and it makes NO sense.
All in all, my biggest problem with the book, these issues aside, is that it is way too long. The author has an excellent story to tell, but she meanders around getting lost here and there, and I found myself skimming just to get back to something interesting. The main characters spend WAY too much time avoiding each other. It's just not interesting enough to waste a quarter or so of the book on. Once the story finally gets going, it fine, but I bet she loses a few readers who won't stick around waiting for the plot to develop.
From the other reviews, I see this is a debut novel for the author, and I wish her well with her future books. She really, really needs to be more careful though. She had an excellent idea for a story, but the execution of it was half-baked. Again, I fault her editor!
