Can I Have a Brody, Please?
on 23 August 2010
I adored this book! Not only were the characters full and funny and wonderful to be around, the sex was great too! Laura Dane has this recipe just about right. A follow-on from Laid Bare, we see all the characters from that book naturally insert themselves into this one. I couldn't put it down!
The relationship that develops between Brody and Elise was great to read. Rennie, her little girl, is suitably 6 years old - with a couple of tantrums and everything! But she's lovely and well loved, which is what I love to see. I really felt for Brody and Elise as they so obviously wanted to get together but 'stuff' got in the way, particularly centred around Elise and her psycho mother-in-law.
I fell in love with the whole family all over again and was pleased to see that not everyone was accepting of Erin, Todd and Ben's menage relationship. 'Pleased' because it's normal that that should be the case within a family, and Laura doesn't pretend that everything's hunky dory. Family is family and there's always someone who will disapprove. That was well mentioned.
But it's Brody I loved. Yes, I wanna get me one of those. Just the right amount of alpha/sex/sensitivity appeal. Not down with all the tattoos and stuff but, what a hunk! (in my head, that is... :-))
I'd like Adrian to have his own story. I wonder if it will be Brody's on/off ex. I don't know how that would work though...
Oh, and the sex? Scorching! Brody does things with his mouth and tongue that should be on presciption only. Phew!
Anyway, if you're reading this review, my advice is to go for it. It really is a good read.
