Book Description

Lori Foster doubles the spice in this two-in-one treat…


Can passion challenge cool, levelheaded reason? Knee-melting kisses spark more than hotelier Tony Austin or boutique owner Olivia Anderson ever planned. He wanted an heir, not a wife. She wanted a no-strings affair…and delicious memories. Scandalous? Perhaps. And it was all going perfectly—until love got in the way.

Sex Appeal

Shadow Callahan sizes up sexy, successful Brent Bramwell as perfect hunk material, ideal for her shopping mall's contest. But take-charge Brent is much more interested in gorgeous, irrepressible Shadow, whose Sex Appeal shop and its, uh, eclectic merchandise make this in-control guy realize he's been missing out. He's got a wild side. And Shadow makes him want to misbehave….

4.0 out of 5 stars Two books in one. 14 April 2010
By Missy K
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book contains two separate stories: Scandalized and Sex Appeal.

The first (Scandalized) is about a successful hotelier and a lingerie boutique owner who make a private (very personal) buisness arrangement regarding an heir and a 'step up' advantage to a five year buisness plan. The best bit? A very surprizing Surprize Birthday Party. As always, love conquers all.

The second (Sex Appeal) is about an impulsive small business owner who propositions a passing man into entering the shopping mall's 'Love and Laughter' contest. Throw in a stalker and several misunderstandings, and there you have it. The best it? The slogans on her jumpers. In the end, another happy ever after.

I liked both stories, but for me the second was a better tale, as the first one had a moral dilema I personally did not like. Saying that, I did enjoy the book. If you have read Lori Foster before, there are no real surprizes here, but as light reading, this is a good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent holiday read 11 July 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I bought this on holiday when I had finished the books I took with me. As one of the few by Ms Foster I don't own I was pleased to see it in the bookshop. The two stories in the book are both good reads, quickly engaging the reader (particularly the first story which was the more emotional of the two). The characters in both stories were endearing and interesting and I will be reading it again. A good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, hot and unique! 2 Jun. 2009
By LAS Reviewer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What happens when two headstrong people decide to get together? Sparks fly, although the attraction isn't instantaneous. What happens when the same people realize they're meant to be? Well, that's Scandalous.

Lori Foster writes characters that everyone can relate to because the characters are real. They have the same problems you and I might have and end up with sexy love interests to tangle with. Her work is always upbeat and refreshing. She takes tried and true real-life issues and makes them unique. These two stories in one are no exception.

In Scandalized, Olivia owns a tastefully risqué boutique. Tony owns the hotel housing her boutiques. Problem? He wants a baby - hers. What does she want? Him. I liked Tony's forthright approach: get in, state the problem and solution, and expect and answer. But I loved that his family threw curveballs into his plans. Who doesn't have the occasional interfering family member? I thought the interactions between Olivia and Tony's nieces and nephews were sweet and endearing to the reader. It didn't hurt that Tony was easy on the eyes, either!

In Sex Appeal, Shadow owns a risqué boutique that caters to the fun in sex. She's not all lace frills. She's got a biting sense of humor that knocks Brent on his bottom - literally! But where this novel could become a knock off of the previous work, Foster goes in a different direction. No screwy family, but rather a stalker bent on harming Shadow. I liked that Shadow was capable of taking care of herself and not afraid to tell Brent when to leave her alone. I also liked his chivalry. I want to read about characters that I could possibly know and Shadow and Brent are those characters.

There aren't too many stories that stick with you even past the last page, but both stories featured in Scandalous fit the bill. If you want sassy heroines and hunky heroes who aren't afraid to back down, then grab a copy of Scandalous and let the stories take you away. I give this work 5 books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. 20 May 2012
By kezermezer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback

The first in this two-fer tells the story of hotelier Tony Austin, who wants a child of his own, and boutique owner Olivia Anderson, the woman whose womb he has chosen to help him fulfill this dream.

Sadly, the plot was just as silly as it sounds. It was hard to respect Tony and Olivia - especially Olivia, in her dishonesty - and it was also hard to believe in their passion and love, particularly when he was so clinical about her when he selected her for the endeavor. It's okay for a light read, but the plot, the writing, and the characters are all just so-so.

Sex Appeal

Sparks fly when Shadow Callahan and Brent Bramwell meet in front of her risqué boutique Sex Appeal, but a stalker throws a wrench into the works.

Sex Appeal's plot, characters, and writing were all a small step above those of Scandalized!, but still nothing amazing. The characters were okay, although Brent was a jerk sometimes - like when he refused to believe Shadow actually had accidentally crashed in front of his house and was not just making up an excuse to see him. His parents were handled somewhat sloppily (his mom's a disapproving snob - oh, wait, she's changed her mind suddenly) as was the stalker, whose story line didn't fit in very well and was wrapped up too abruptly and conveniently.

All in all, Scandalous was a light, somewhat amusing read, but not as enjoyable as it should have been.

Definitely skip this one by Foster. The plots were stupid, the dialogue was lame and corny, there was no emotional depth, and the women were flat-out stupid. Foster has written much better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Two Stories, But The Same 18 Mar. 2009
By LuvsLabs09 - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have never read Foster before. This book is two stories in one book. But....the stories are almost exactly alike! Story 1, is about a rich man, and a woman who owns a lingerie shop. She doesn't want to fall in love with him, but does. Story 2 is about a rich guy and a woman who owns a sex toy shop (been there done that in previous story), he doesn't want to fall in love and she does. Both women get pregnant....ho hum. Are you kidding me???? Foster couldn't have come up with two stories less alike?????

Doesn't say much for the originality or talent of this author.
