Book Review: Her Valentine Fantasy

valentineJessica is on a date the week before Valentine’s Day and it doesn’t seem to be going so well.  When he leaves before the date is over and leaves her with the bill, Jessica is so frazzled she ends up leaving her room key instead of her credit card and leaves. (I don’t quite get this. Why you’d leave a credit card and leave the restaurant – but for the sake of the story I will go with it.)  The waiter, Sam, was really into Jessica and decides to head to the hotel to give her the key back and get the money for the dinner.  Jessica apologizes and says she will give him cash instead of making him run back to the restaurant with her credit card (see? now it’s part of the story?) but they end up hooking up instead.

When they meet up the next day, Sam is under the impression that Jessica is going back home to Chicago later that day, as Jessica neglected to inform him she lives nearby and was staying in the hotel to be closer to a convention she was working at.  Sam also neglects to tell her that while he is a waiter at the restaurant, he also OWNS it. (Something Jessica ends up finding out after calling the restaurant to get in touch with him again).  They have another day of sightseeing and hooking up and Jessica is pleased  that her New Years Resolution of having great sex before Valentine’s Day has come true.

The book ends on Valentine’s Day and the two are together again.  Something that bothered me is that the lies each of them had told each other was never resolved.  You don’t know if the relationship went beyond Valentine’s Day or how all that worked out and since that was bugging me the most while reading it, I’d have liked for that to be resolved.  But as this is a Cosmo Red-Hot Read, the story is short which is what I like about them so I guess I either have to be happy with the short story or want the story to have more information included 😉

About the Book

Tonight’s sinful dessert special…Valentine’s Fantasy

The tasty dish from Benedict restaurant is everything Jessica Lafayette could want… or crave. And it’s not the dessert in front of her—it’s her waiter. A guy with dark, intense eyes that suggest he wants to slowly lick whipped cream off her skin. A smile so wicked it makes her insides lava-cake gooey. And a too-hot-to-handle body that was meant to be tasted…

Yup, Sam The Waiter is better than chocolate.

But what Jessica doesn’t know is that her one-night-waiter is actually Sam Benedict, Upscale Restaurateur. And that her little lie about being from out of town is going to turn into a Big Deal. Now Jessica is in deep hot chocolate… because her Valentine Fantasy is starting to look a lot like a red-hot reality!

Book Review: Historical Heartthrobs


What better for Valentine’s Day than a book about Historical Heartthrobs?  This book makes learning about history fun and picks 50 of the “top” heartthrobs.  There are “vital stats” on each of the heartthrobs which includes their years, country or origin, area of influence and style of seduction!  then there is a little bit about the persons life story, the story of their sex life, why he/she matters, best feature and heat factor and some quotables with quotes that others said about the person.  It gives just enough information about the person to be interesting and in such a way that it is fun.  And we all know how much I “love” history…

About the Book

Hot tip for potential Jeopardy contestants: History really comes alive when you stop to consider the likes of Eva Peron and Nikola Tesla as potential members of your dating pool. Some items for consideration: Stalin was handsome as a devil, but he lived like one too (c.f. the purges). Che had the smoldering good looks, but would he only look out for himself in a relationship (he is eerily photogenic, after all)? And what about Nelly Bly? Was it legal to look that good in 1884? Historical Heartthrobs includes both men and women from a wide range of countries, ethnicities, and historical epochs. Some are artists, some are scientists, and many are political or military leaders, but all have had a lasting impact on human life—and a sizable impact on their admirers as well. In addition to an iconic image of each personality, each entry contains essential information about when these people lived and died, where they came from, what their best features were, and why they mattered. Each entry concludes with a crushability ranking: a measurement of how crushworthy these people really were, based on their relative levels of heroism/villainy. $100 Gift Card Giveaway
