Another for the Keeper Shelf

I read The Pregnancy Test yesterday. In one day. Okay, it's 250 pages, but I was even reading it during commercials of Grey's Anatomy. Y'all know how I love Grey's Anatomy, even when I own the episode on DVD.

ANYWAY, this book, like Dee's book, makes me remember why I love to read romance. You have the heroine whose life is turned upside down by a stick that turns pink. You have a hero who has shut himself off from emotions and has earned himself the name of Demon Sharpton. He hires her as his secretary (and I don't usually like boss/secretary romances). They intrigue each other with email and instant message, because she's hiding her pregnancy from him, fearing he wouldn't hire her because of it. And you have a working vacation to the Caribbean, where both of them agree their affair must stay.

Their longing for each other was so poignant, especially Damien, who was so afraid to FEEL anything, and here he's falling for a pregnant woman. That first love scene was just amazing as he tries to hang onto control for those reasons.

This was a Brava book, so a little hotter than I was used to, but so well done. I was curious about how Brava would do a pregnant heroine, but through the course of the book, she isn't more than 5 months along. I don't remember feeling that sexy, though ;) It WAS a long time ago!

Now, to decide what to read next.

OH! That looks good.I haven't read Brava yet. I've heard it's hot.

Kendra, this is my third Brava. Get a Clue by Jill Shalvis is good, too. It's nowhere near EC hot, but it's pretty darn explicit.

I've got Erin McCarthy's other books on my wish list....

AND I plan to stalk her at National.

Sounds great. I so have to catch up on my TBR pile.

MaryF said...

Stacy, I will never catch up with my TBR pile, and National is coming up....I am just reading this weekend, though. Too many distractions going on.
