Herding Cats & Burning Soup – All the Right Places

Oh. My. Book. Noms! All the Right Places…MmmmI devoured every single page of this fun, sexy romp and couldn’t get enough of the charming and quirky duo that was Quinn and Amelia.

The quick of it is that Quinn now runs his family’s large company that specializes in jeans. Only problem…their women’s division leaves a lot to be desired. He’d rather just write it off but his sister has other plans and brings in Amelia–a fresh up and coming designer–to help revamp things. Everything is on the line for both of them so professionalism…a must. Too bad all kinds of lusty dirty thoughts just keep popping into their minds about the other. ::snort::

She didn’t want a cupcake. She wanted Quinn.

“They both sound good. I don’t know.”

“How about you get one flavor, and I’ll get the other, and we’ll share?”

She nodded. “That sounds fine,” she said, lying through her teeth. She didn’t want to share his cupcake, unless “cupcake” was a code word for “penis”.

I…was totally there with Amelia. LOL

Quinn and Amelia. Oh man. These two were lovely. I enjoyed the hell out of both of them. Quinn is just the guy. Everything about him had me feeling a little swoony. He’s a good man. Dependable, solid, someone who would always be there for you and does the right thing. He was just sexy as all get out and made me want to lick him right good.

Amelia was a nice match for him. She’s a little quirky and despite some insecurities that would bubble up she was a strong woman who’d survived a horrible childhood and fought for everything she had. She’s a crazy talented designer, fun to be around and I just wanted to spend time with her.

I really loved them together too. They were sweet and hot and could be funny and cute. They tried so hard to resist each other but just couldn’t (yay for us!) They fit nicely and were two you’d just look at and go…yeah. That makes perfect sense and they so belong together.

“While I’m changing the sheets, I want you to take off every piece of clothing you’re wearing,” he ordered as he made his way toward the bed. “The moment I finish, I am going to throw you on this bed, and you’re not going to get off of it for a good long while.”

Pulling back the duvet-enclosed comforter with one hand, he tossed it over the footboard, his movements quick and economical. When he noticed she hadn’t moved, he dropped the stack of clean sheets on the bed and pointed at her.

“Why are you still dressed?”

She recognized the look on his face. “I’m making you crazy again, aren’t I?”

He propped his hands on his hips, an aggressively masculine stance. Tilting his head back, he closed his eyes.

“God, yes, you make me crazy.”

And holy heat! I was expecting a rather sweet romance that didn’t get too hot and heavy but whoa! These two were scorching! The chemistry was excellent and they totally had me squirming as they heated things up and got to know each other better. It took them a little bit to get there and I was so having words with the book because they needed to stop thinking dirty and start doing dirty. lol And then they did. And dayum! Yay!

“You want to go out to eat right now?” she asked incredulously.

He frowned. “No. There are a lot of things I want to do instead of eating Chinese food,” He paused meaningfully, his voice deepening.”I want to strip you naked and put my hands and mouth all over your body. I want to be so deep inside you that you scream my name until your voice is gone.”

His voice faded to a husky whisper. “I want to make you come so many times you forget who you are and where you are. I want to take you over and over until the pleasure feels like pain.”

His raspy voice and raw words sent a flood of lava-like desire through her. She swallowed to ease the tightness in her throat so she could respond, but he stepped back,putting more space between them.

Holding out his hands, palms up, he shrugged his shoulders. “But I’m trying to be a decent guy here, Juice. I don’t think you’re ready for this. And I don’t want you to regret it.” He pointed to himself with his thumb. “Because I won’t regret it. And I’ll probably want to do it, and you, as often as possible.”

When she didn’t respond, he continued. “Do you understand what I’m saying?”

Yeah. It was good. Even when things weren’t perfect between them and when things blew up. I just really enjoyed seeing these two figure things out.

I really liked the set up as well. It was fun exploring this huge company. Seeing how they ran, the struggles as control of the company changed hands from father to son, as they tried to figure out how to move in a new direction and keep the company growing.

I only had one quibble, really. The epilogue jumped a crazy amount and landed them 10 years in the future. For me it made the ending a little….just…. less. It wasn’t a bad epilogue. I mean. It was all good things and smile-able. But it was just too far in the future for me. Okay. Two quibbles. I wasn’t a fan of his sister at all and seeing she’s the heroine of the next book I’m a touch nervous about that. I’m hoping she’ll be able to make up for things from this book.

All in all, Sutton totally delighted with her debut. All the Right Places left me happy, content and excited to see what Sutton will do next.
