Do not waste any time buying this book when it becomes available. Make sure you have some uninterrupted time when you crack open this book because you are not going to be able to put it down. Send the hubby and kids somewhere for a few hours and get your read on! When the hubby or significant other gets back, if you have kids, put them to bed because you are going to want to play! Men will be writing Maureen thanking them for this book!
I have to say Kimani made the right choice choosing Maureen Smith to launch the new Kimani Nights line! She will be a hard act to follow.
All the Buzz
"Whatever You Like" is so HOT! I had to fan myself after reading the sex scenes. Lean and Roderick had an amazing chemistry. From the first chapter to the last, I was hooked. Their week in Tokyo..., omg, the shower scene! Oh yeah, every women should have a man like Roderick. Their goodbyes at the airport, so sad. I used half a box of Kleenex, I was so sure Roderick was going to propose at that moment. I find this book similar to "Taming the Wolf". Overall this book is fantastic, a keeper. Buy it you'll not be disappointed. I can't wait to read "Tempt Me At Midnight" due 12/10.
The Limo, the shower the swimming pool and trust there is so so much more with this couple. This is a book that best read when find a good spot with something tall and cold to drink, also keep some tissue beside you as well. A lot of husband and SO's will be happy as well once you finish reading this book.
When Kimani decided on a new line they couldn't have pick a better author to start it off with and with our help and a lot of praying this line will be off the chain. Way to go Kimani Nights.
It was definitely not a relaxing read for me. I have read stories before where the hero or heroine has done everything in their power to lure the object of their lust into bed. However, they did not provoke a reaction like this book. It was a love hate relationship.
The first reaction came a the choice of profession for our heroine Lena, it was an escort. It is not the authors fault that I am of an age where I equate escort with prostitute. So I found myself fighting my own preconceived notions.
It did not help that our hero Roderick was also coming to grip with these notions . After all not only was Lena intelligent she was also a gorgeous women. He basically cornered her into a relationship with him that made her attraction to him seem whorish.. This is not an admirable trait especially when he was so ruthless. I usually have to warm up to these characters such as Roderick .
I did warm up to Roderick until he started acting like such a jealous and noxious fool. I wanted to grab and shake some sense into him.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. Yet, Roderick the hero let me down. He didn't realize that it was his actions that made Lena seem less than she was and he waited until it was almost to late to ask her forgiveness.
Not what I expected but it is good to shake up things once in awhile.
It's kind of hard to REALLY like Roderick as the hero because he just doesn't...think for such a smart man. He basically buys Lena for sex and she's dumb enough to go for it so her university can get the arts grant it needs funded by Roderick.
I just expected more from the story. Roderick mentions his loving family yet we don't meet them. A quickie meeting with his twin brother doesn't suffice. Lena has a great family with her grandfather. A kind of deadbeat sister though. Morgan's not a bad character but she's pretty selfish to not even try to help pay for their grandfather's assisted living facility (this is what makes Lena moonlight as an escort). Lena carries the burden of her grandfather on her shoulders while Morgan bounces from one boyfriend to the next and spends money on clothes. While Lena has to resort to being an escort.
The sex is GOOD. But it's just porn with a lacking plot. The plot had SO much potential but Roderick's obliviousness in seeing that he REALLY is just treating Lena like a bought for prostitute makes him lacking for me. And the Maureen Smith fell into the infamous "big misunderstanding" plot and it was just a time line fast forward. It wasn't that good of a rift and was only used to make the book travel from September to February.
Overall if you WANT/NEED/DESPERATELY want to read great sex scenes pick this book up. I feel blah having read this. All I can remember is the sex. The storyline was just so very lacking and in turn made the characters kind of boring. So sad for a book with potential to go much further.
If you want a great storyline this isn't the book for you. Buy it if you want to read just sex only.
