The book opens with Quinn getting dumped. As she attempts to crawl out of her post breakup funk, her neighbor/former burlesque queen Frenchy gives her a talking-to.
“I see you with your men,” she said lowly. “You’re all poofy and swishy and like-me-like-me-like-me.” She waved a wrinkled hand as if shooing a fly. “That’s crap. You need to figure out who Quinn is. Embrace yourself. Figure out what you want. What makes you happy? In life, in a job, in a man, hell, darling, in bed. Id’ say that’s number one. Because when you’ve had a good lay with a good man who wants you…” she grinned in the dark as if savoring a particularly delicious memory, “everything else just falls into place.”
Quinn enlists Frenchy’s aid to revamp her wardrobe, her walk, and her attitude. After only a few days, she finds herself out to dinner with her best friend and her best friend’s drop dead gorgeous cousin Keaton. She’s floored to discover that he likes her.
Frenchy is a brilliant character who has a low tolerance for bulls*** and a high regard for high heels and hot sex. Picturing an elderly burlesque dancer rasping out her lines never failed to give me a smile. I wish I had a Frenchy in my life–someone who would give me a talking to when I needed that, and lessons in how to twirl a tassle when I needed that.
I related to Quinn. I fell prey to the same personality flaws in the past–I’ll be whatever you want me to be/like whatever you like without any regard for whether I am those things/like those things. She goes through the kind of transformation that I always imagined going through. That Hollywood-esque take off the glasses and everyone sees all along that she was hot s*** transformation. It’s better than any movie though, because Sommer ensures that we see Quinn struggle with it. Fail at it. Still babble when nervous.
The chemistry between Quinn and Keaton sizzles. He’s an alpha male, but not in a mansplaining let-me-fix-you way that I find so annoying. We get to peek under the alpha male and see that he is just as uncertain as she is. Does she like him for real, or will she break his heart.
The sex scenes made me squirm in my seat—in the best possible way. But unlike those early erotic novels, I want to read the whole book again. I want to go through the journey that gets me to those sex scenes because they’re not just hot, I’m emotionally invested in the relationship.
It’s a fantastic story AND fantastic erotica. Sommer gets an A+++
The Mighty Quinn is a journey of one woman's quest of finding love. And the great lengths she goes to at trying to find it - to include the most important piece about love - loving oneself first.
I love the transformation that takes place, as Quinn struggles to feel like the sexy woman she aspires to be. Even better, there are hilarious mishaps along the way, and don't forget the hot hot hot sex. This is one of those romances that feels like it could happen in real life, and it's very heart-warming in a way that gives you hope. LOVE this book and I highly recommend it.
