BAD BOYS DO
This second Donovan siblings story has plenty of hot sex along with some complicated and interesting main characters. Nicely connected to the first, it is a delightful romance between two people who struggle to discover their own self-worth.
A longing for girlfriends has Olivia Bishop joining a book club. Unfortunately, the topic for discussion is not books, but the women’s dating lives and sexual adventures -- Olivia has neither. The meeting takes place at Donovan Brothers Brewery where she meets 29-year-old Jamie Donovan, considered young by 35-year-old Olivia. When he shows up in the college class she teaches on restaurant development and management, it ends up with her asking him out to get back at her ex. She soon discovers there is much more to him than charm and sex appeal, but can they both overcome a lack of self-confidence to make a relationship work? (HQN, Oct., 384 pp., $7.99)
