I enjoyed this book as well. Again, a quick read, a fun read, totally a beach read. I love reading these fast books simply because every now and then you need a break. I read so many different genres, some really long books, a bunch of business books, trade journals, yeah, I read nonstop. So when I come across a book like this one, it's a welcome break.
Maxine Turner inherits her grandmother's ancient home. The trick is that her grandmother is still alive and it's actually Maxine, her twin brother, and her cousin that inherit the house. Through an agreement between her brother and cousin, Maxine lives in the house and is in the process of buying it out from them. Things do not turn out as we expect.
Enter the security expert. I mean, hot, sexy, older man security expert. I think you'll enjoy this fast read. So check it out. Turn It On: Turner Twins, Book 1
This book will be near the top of my Books in the Pile ([...])
"security expert" was being duped throughout the book. However, at least there was a plot going on behind just the relationship. There were some editing flaws that I found, but that seems to be common ground now a days and this book isn't nearly as bad in that department as some of the others that I have read recently.
Overall this was an enjoyable read and I would recommend it.
Yes there were holes in the story that didn't add up. He owns a security company but didnt set the cameras up properly? Quitting the military to look after disabled brother? Sending Gramma off to condo living and not knowing that the house that had been in the family for years had a secret passage? Max still thinking the vandals were kids? I could go on and on about how the author thinks the readers are not bright and wouldn't pick up on all the plot holes. So instead of writing what I didn't like, I can write what I did like??
I liked how Max and Ryan met. That made me smile. I felt their attraction to each other when Ryan came to her house to inspect for security. I thought the author did a great job making the reader "feel" their attraction instead of just writing "Max likes Ryan". When they were both so incredibly drawn to each other but needed to maintain a professional reserve was amusing to read.
I liked that Ryan and Max didn't just sleep together the first time and it took a bit for them to do so.
I really like how well the author orchestrated the smut scenes. (okay epic thesaurus fail on turgid penis)I thought they were hot and well paced. Well paced in the sense that, after the first time, BAM! they were not hopelessly in love. (I really hate when authors do that)
I thought it was interesting to add the storyline about her ex Jamie being a lousy lover and how he made Max shower first or no oral or intimate touching etc. If her previous boyfriend was her only experience and that's what he made her do or what they did, then that's all she knows. I loved how the author wrote regarding Ryan getting her out of that frame of mind. It was like it's own little story within the story.
I also enjoyed the ending. I felt Max had really grown since the beginning of the book and I liked her change. I was super happy that the book did not end with having a baby or something. God I hate how books end with babies.
So yes, major plot holes and unlikely situations but I still liked it. Question is would I buy the next Turner book? My answer is no. As much as I enjoy great smut scenes, I do need a great story to carry me through. (unless it is a total erotica novel where the sex is the story)
This was a great sexy novella with a bit of suspense thrown in. I will be buying more of Ms Arend's books!
This is the first time reading anything by this author but it will not be the last. This book does not disappoint.
