Fancy Free #1
Full length novel
Available in digital and paperback.
Warning: Condoms were tested and a few harmed during the writing of this story.
It's not every day a girl inherits a condom company, and to say accountant Alice Beasley is astonished and out of her depth is putting it mildly. For an almost virgin, she needs a quick education in all things condom because her inheritance is in danger. Someone is intent on sabotage and trying to destroy her new company. Alice is suddenly getting down and dirty with charismatic James, the factory manager, all in the name of business, testing new condom designs. The sex is hot. Mind-blowing. It's a dark thrill and an erotic journey. Yeah, it's a hard job, but a girl's got to do what a girl's gotta do. Alice wants James. She craves his talented touch and sultry kisses, she desires passion and physical pleasure on a permanent basis but first she must convince bad-boy James to give up his fancy-free ways.
What I LIKED about the book.Had some steamy sex.
What I DISLIKED about the book.Excessive time jumping, flat characters, thin plot.
Where I got it from.I received this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
ReviewThe plot has a great deal of potential. An almost virgin inherits a condom company. I fully expected hilarity to ensue. It did not. Alice, the heroine, is ready to explore her sexuality and chooses James, the manager, to help her. She assumes that a man who works in a condom company and is attractive must get a lot of sex. He was annoyed by this yet still engages in the no strings attached sex she accused him of having before. They end up partnering to test the new line of condoms. Alice and James do not talk much except to further misunderstand each other. I applaud Alice for wanting to give the company an honest try and make it successful again, but she is an accountant who suddenly is thrust into the management role for an entire company. A company that is already in some financial trouble. Now is the best time to stick someone with no experience in running a business or condoms in the lead role.
