Review by Hibiscus

All Blyth wants is a nice relaxing getaway from her wreck of a life and ass of an ex, Johnny. What she gets is a double booked condo with the playboy from Hell. First she walks in on him in the middle of very loud sex. Then she gets caught looking. And God help her, she’s turned on. Unfortunately, he’s on to her and he calls her on it. Anthony is rude, infuriating and definitely a player. Blyth knows she’s in for an anything but relaxing vacation if she’s going to have to share quarters with the likes of him. What Blyth isn’t counting on is being sucked into his vortex of sex or the fact that he seems to be able to push her past boundaries she didn’t even know she had. Somewhere in the midst of his parade of girls and huge ego is a real man. Who has real hurt. And the real part of him is calling to her. First with temptation, then with sex and then something more. She’s just not sure if she’s strong enough to answer.

I found Double Booked to be a very good story about two wounded people who are brought together by a mutual friend to hopefully heal each other.

Blyth Monroe is a twenty nine year old woman who’s boyfriend of five years cheats on her. Oh course Blyth leaves him, but she is difficult to be with. After two months, her friend Craig forces her to take a vacation at his beach house. I felt that Blyth needed to get away and enjoy herself. Unfortunately, she walks into the same situation that occurred with her ex. Blyth is turned on by her roommate and would like to get together with him for a little R & R. Anthony keeps telling her that she isn’t ready. I could understand her frustration when she is practicality throwing herself at him and he keeps saying not now.

Anthony Street is enough to make any woman weak in the knees. Woman keep throwing themselves at him and he takes them up on it. Everyone except Blyth, that is. He knows all about her situation and I get the feeling that he is trying to help her in his own way. I think he really starts to care for her and that frightens him and makes him want to not have intimate relations with Blyth.

The conversations and fights that Anthony and Blyth have regarding the opposite sex and themselves were great. I felt that I was in the room with them as they fought. Things really came to a boil when Johnny shows up at the beach house. And can I talk about boiling. The sexual scenes were very explicit and had me feeling each caress and warming with every spank.

My only beef was with the editing of the book itself. There were the standard errors of homonyms i.e. bear used instead of bare and the incomplete spelling i.e. the instead of them. The one blatant error was when Johnny showed up at the beach house and Blyth referred to him as Anthony. Mind you, Anthony was not even in that whole scene. If not for these editing errors, I would have enjoyed Double Booked much more than I did as these errors throw stumbling blocks in a good read. If you can overlook these errors, Double Booked is a good story that is worth reading.
