The Sexy Devil
Harlequin Blaze, Jun 2010, $4.99
In high school Angela Weatherby fell in love with star athlete Max Morgan, who was a player. Now she is authoring a book on “Smooth Operators: A Woman’s Guide to Avoiding Dating Disasters”. However, she has hit a snag when two womanizing hunks reform and marry her friends although she insists they are inside the margin of error.
Based on posts to her website, Max, now a professional baseball player, deserves his own chapter as the epitome of The Sexy Devil. Angela decides to look him up assuming that as an adult she will be immune to his curveball. Instead she learns the error of her ways as she still wants him. He is in love too, but what will happen when he learns she classified him as another unfeeling male creep.
This is a fun lighthearted contemporary frolic as the baseball player and the writer steal each other’s heart but struggle to complete the game of love. Although the story line is a bit thin, fans will enjoy the fun tale as Angela begins to wonder how many devilish hunks belong outside the breaking a woman’s heart “norm”.
