For Olivia Sullivan, love is more a four letter curse word than a sentiment. Growing up as the daughter of a small town mortician, guys didn’t warm to the fact there were dead people in her house. At thirty, taking over the family business and becoming the town Coroner helped to cement her undateable status. Of course her past sex history didn’t help matters either.
Attempt number one with her first love ended barely before it got started with a horrific latex allergy hospitalization. Attempt number two had him coming and then going with an undiagnosed heart condition. For the past three years, Olivia has closed up shop for fear of what might happen next in the bedroom.
After being forced to go single to her mother’s lingerie shower, Olivia stumbles into an out of town bar with one intention: find an able bodied stud to go home with to end her losing sex streak. Enter Holden Caulfield Mains aka Catcher, who earned his nickname not just from the book he was named for, but for the fact he was sure to catch the attention any woman who came within a five mile radius. Waking up after a night of the most mind blowing sex she could have ever imagined, a horrified Olivia runs away thinking she’s left Catcher behind.
When Olivia’s small town is wracked by its first murder, she never could have imagined her one night stand would reappear in the form of the GBI’s lead investigator. To her mortification, Catcher isn’t ready to let go of their sizzling chemistry, and he doesn’t understand the meaning of no. As things start to heat up between them, the body count starts to rise, and they’re led on a wild goose chase from back woods mountain Nudist Colonies to altercations with the Dixie Mafia. Can Olivia and Catcher survive to solve the murder while also not succumbing to their explosive passion?
I loved this book to DEATH! Katie Ashley gives us the perfect blend of sexy and hilarity in her latest romantic comedy, DROP DEAD SEXY. With tons of laugh out loud moments and scorching hot love scenes, this author, once again, delivers a love story every romance fanatic will fall in love with. OMG! These characters were EVERYTHING! But I have to say, our heroine, Olivia Sullivan, STOLE THE SHOW! Some of the things she says is exactly what I say in my head every single day! She was so kick ass and had such witty comments, I was just blown away by how much I liked her. I kept saying to myself, I want to be just like her when I grow up! Then I think to myself, well, except the whole job description she has going on. HEHE!
And let’s not forget about Catcher Mains! HOLY HELL BATMAN! The filthy mouth on this man was just so damn yummy! First of all, let’s take a moment and admire his full name: Holden Caulfield Mains aka Catcher Mains. Can’t you just picture the sexy package that comes with that name? I mean DAMN Katie! NICE CHOICE! Let me give you a little taste of what comes out of this man’s mouth:
“Oh, I’m sorry. Is it one of those ‘if you told me you’d have to kill me’ kinda things?”
“Maybe. And I sure don’t want to kill you. Especially before I got to fuck you and make you scream my name.”
My mouth gaped open at him once again being so brazen. “Um, okay,” I replied.
“Don’t play the prude with me, Olivia. We both know that you came in here on a search mission for cock.”
LOL! I freaking LOVE that man! That was on hell of a first meeting, wouldn’t you say? DROP DEAD SEXY was so hilarious and so unique and SO DAMN SEXY! On top of that, there is a fair amount of suspense in the mix. All throughout reading this, I had the television show, BONES in my mind. It’s one of my favorite shows and the chemistry between Olivia and Catcher somewhat mirrored the chemistry between Bones and Agent Booth. THAT was a FANTASTIC surprise for me! To top off this review I would like to leave you with a little more of Catcher banter! You can thank me later!
“Oh come on, Liv. Be a big girl and admit that you diddled yourself back in the day. Buttering your biscuit as a teenager is nothing to be ashamed of. I was twelve the first time I spanked the monkey.”
