Bestselling romance author Kayla Perrin is at it again. With her latest book, Gimme an O, she weaves a sizzling tale of suspense with her signature dose of romance. Although this reviewer is not a huge fan of romance novels, Gimme an O kept me turning the pages trying to anticipate what would happen next.
Lecia Calhoun is a sex therapist who has written The Big O, a provocative self-help book, especially Chapter 13, which has readers buzzing. Anthony Beals is the handsome star quarterback of the Oakland Raiders, but he is in the midst of scandal, with pictures of him and a prostitute plastered in the tabloids. As a result of the scandal, Ginger, Anthony's wife of only a few months, wants a divorce and the $5 million she's entitled to per the prenuptial agreement.
Lecia, while publicizing her book, makes many radio and TV appearances, including the Jay Leno show where she gets into a heated argument with none other than Anthony, who is also a guest of the show. Anthony accuses Lecia of encouraging his wife to seek divorce. Although Lecia did talk with Ginger briefly, the doctor fervently denies any wrongdoing.
When Ginger turns up missing and all fingers point to Anthony, he seeks Lecia's help. Determined to find Ginger and make things right with his wife, the hunt is on. While searching for his wife, Anthony and Lecia make important discoveries about Ginger and themselves-discoveries that can have a serious impact of life and love.
Gimme an O is truly romantic suspense at its best. Although at times I questioned how realistic Lecia's actions were, I enjoyed the read. With great characterization, the author makes you feel the sexual tension between Anthony and Lecia and the exhilaration of their wild goose chase. Readers will be pleasantly surprised to see that at the end, the author included the infamous Chapter 13 from "The Big O"...very interesting stuff. Kudos to Ms. Perrin for writing a fast-paced, entertaining novel. Like a skillful lover, she'll leave you begging for more.
