Image of Great-Aunt Sophia's Lessons for Bombshells

Cach’s novel about the transformation of a frumpy Ph.D. student into a bombshell doesn’t break new ground, but it does heat up the pages with no-hands-allowed seduction and a sexy lesson on manual transmissions. A rushed ending and unnecessary plot twists keep this book from being a Top Pick.

Over the summer, Grace Cavanaugh plans to finish her dissertation on sexual politics while caring for her Great-Aunt Sophia. But Sophia challenges Grace’s view of men and sex, putting her niece on a diet and getting her to test her feminine “power.” Two very different men are part of her lessons. There’s shy and bookish Dr. Andrew, obviously a perfect match. Then there’s Declan, a smoking-hot lothario whom Grace insists she loathes, even as they make love whenever and wherever they can. As summer comes to an end, she’s forced to face herself and her feelings to make the biggest decision of her life. (GALLERY, Jun., 320 pp., $15.00)
