Getting under her skin…

When her research about orgasms goes viral, sex therapist Lindsey Smith needs a place to lie low. Substitute teaching on Wild Boar Island, Michigan, promises not only privacy, but an opportunity to not think about sex. Which, thanks to the town's too-tasty police chief, lasts exactly one second.

After the dangerous streets of Chicago, Mike Santori figured the island was a safe, sane place to settle down. Getting hot for the new teacher wasn't in the plan. Especially when he discovers that Lindsey is more than she claims to be. Mike decides to use every sexy trick in the book to strip Lindsey of her defenses and reveal all of her secrets. It's a wickedly sensuous journey, one that pushes both of them beyond their limits…to the heart of their desires.

Review: Leslie Kelly has always been on my list of favorite writers for the Blaze line. Her stories have plot as well as hot steamy sexy.

The best part is, the sex doesn't take up the whole story. In fact, in Double Take, Lindsey and Mike don't get it going on until halfway through the book!

Keep the two of them out of bed gave you time to get to know both characters and it really gave you time to fall for Mike. I mean, why aren't there real guys out there like him? And why can't I find one? Oh yes, this is  romance novel and these kinds of guys don't exist.


Because Mike is one awesome guy. He's kind, smart, sweet, funny. I mean the scene when he finds some of her work related "toys" was priceless. I laughed out loud.

There aren't many authors that can make me laugh, especially romance writers, Leslie is one of them, the other is Stephanie Bond.

Oh and back to the work related toys, which are "sex toys" because Leslie is a sex therapist that is just a little bit infamous for some research she did. That research is part of the reason she's staying on the island for a few months. Ah, Thinkgasms.  I won't explain, you'll just have to read it to find out.

I also loved the small town mentality going on in Wild Boar. However some of the ultra-conservative views you see with certain townspeople make you think you are in the south and not on an island in Michigan.

This was a super, fun read. (Great for the poolside, if you have one)
