Who else could write, “It was just the look I was going for: Pebbles Flintstone on Crack…” ? And the whole book is like that – witty put-downs, snappy come-backs and more unexpected comparisons and plot twists than you could imagine, besides the fact that you get narration from two different viewpoints – from Sydney and also from Jordan, which somehow increases the sexual tension.
The erotic descriptions that get us squirming as we read the story might not be able to be spelled out on screen, but a good film director would be able to get the ideas across without so many words (remember how you knew exactly what was going on in Body Heat and The Big Easy and Don't Look Now…? ).
What I haven't been able to decide is: Who could play Sydney ? Has to be smart, hot, and also able to make you laugh without losing her sex appeal (so, no Phyllis Diller or ZsaZsu Pitts types)... In the old days it could have been a young Rosalind Russell or Eve Arden (long before Our Miss Brooks -- but they didn't make movies like this back in the Year of the Black Snow, did they?)
My best candidate might be Sandra Bullock or Katherine Heigl, who did a great Stephanie Plum. But this has got to get to the Big Screen – if there are more novels like this from Shelby Kent-Stewart, it could become a film dynasty to rival the Lethal Weapon series!
Great novel! Bring on some more!
The energy and the humour in the text is truly off the charts. Verily it is more than a treat.
I can imagine it making a delectable film :)
Powerful men will go to great lengths to hide awful crimes, can those that suffer find justice and love? Or will the damage keep Sydney from happiness?
The alternating POV takes a minute to get used to and part of me wishes the author stayed with the more powerful female lead throughout, but the sheer pace of this erotic tinged thriller made it a joy to read.
The story was complex, yet easy to read and well written.
I will definitely read more from Shelby Kent-Stewart.
