Flat-Out Sexy By Erin McCarthy

Flat Out SexyWidow Tamara Briggs thinks that dating someone boring and safe is the best way for her to ease back into dating after the death of her husband, race-car driver Peter Briggs, two years before. But she didn't count with the fact that the guy she selected is way dull and that there is no chemistry between them.

It also happens that when she realizes of her mistake, she's left stranded at a charity event without a place to sleep - since she was supposed to share a room with the dud in question - so when a friend offers to send her to sleep at his coach in the race-track, and finds one of his friends to escort her, Tamara is kind of relieved.

So she meets Elec Monroe, and the chemistry that was so obviously missing before, springs to life when she's with him. She isn't quite sure who he is but there is a pull there and for once in her life, this very responsible single mother, decides to run with her gut and say yes to whatever Elec asks her to do... as long as their relationship is kept casual and discreet.

Elec didn't know Tamara was married into the Briggs Family - the Briggs and the Monroe families had a fall out years before - but by the time he realizes, Elec is beyond caring. He finds Tamara sexy, likes that she's smart and classy and doesn't care that she's older than him. Elec understands Tamara's need for discretion - for the sake of her children - but casual isn't exactly what he's after when it comes to her.

It had been a long time since I enjoyed a contemporary book quite as much as I enjoyed Flat Out Sexy, the book is sexy and fun but it has some substance to it. Elec, Tamara and the other characters in the book seem very real and surprisingly un-piggy headed. Tamara has reservations about dating another driver, but she sees that though they have the same profession, Elec is nothing like her late husband.

A good story line and great characters, it was a lovely read, and I can't wait to read the next two books in the series.

Favorite Quote: Momma had always warned her to watch out for the quiet ones, and have mercy, had she been right. Tamara stared at Elec staring at her, and she forgot how to think. Did he have any idea what he did to her when he looked at her like that? The way his deep, sensual eyes just bore into her, making her feel like he could strip away all her reservations right along with her clothes and take whatever he wanted from her.
