Rating: 4.5 Cherries

Home and Garden assistant manager Evie Strand has painstakingly embroidered a set of seven thongs as a gag gift for her best friend— only she brought the wrong box to the store Christmas party, and now Adam Grant from Automotive is holding them up for everyone to see: Kiss my…, Tight Fit—could things get any worse? Adam may seem like a total rake, but he can tell Evie’s deeply embarrassed and he resolves to make it up to her. Who knew where a simple dinner date would lead?

I loved A Gift For Adam and was throughly entertained from the first line to the last. I must mention that there is a F/F kiss shared between girlfriends but this is definitely the hot tale of romance between Evie and Adam.

I loved Evie’s wicked humor. It showed not only on the sayings that she embroidered on the thongs but she teased Adam through the entire story. I could see Evie as being a simple farm girl. She never “dressed up” or did much with her appearance. When she had her makeover, I could tell she was surprised at how she looked.

Adam was portrayed as a player. He never gave Evie a second thought at the store as he believed her to be not very good looking. I thought he was a very superficial person at first. When he received Evie’s gift, his humor showed and also his kindness when he stopped reading the thongs. As Adam apologized and got to know Evie, he found they had a lot in common and began to like her for herself. After the makeover, his superficial side briefly shows again but Adam redeems himself in other ways.

I thought that the situation with Christy, Evie’s friend, was thrown in to justify Adam’s comments and really had no bearing on the relationship between Adam and Evie.

I enjoyed the quips that Adam and Evie exchanged. The classic car sexual innuendos at the New Years Eve party put a smile on my face. There were so many humorous moments that I found myself wanted to read the story again when I had finished just to keep smiling. I found A Gift For Adam to be a very sexy, humorous romance that I will read again.
