Ariel Turner has a mission in life - to find the perfect sex partner, and to share his moves with the public on her anonymous blog. Unfortunately, her last bed-buddy ended up having ties to a terrorist group, which has put her sex life into a bit of a tail-spin.

Luckily for her Marc Sorella shows up. Easy on the eyes and generous between the sheets, Marc is everything she's wanted in a perfect lover - except that he seems to want there to be a relationship involved rather than just sex. And commitment and responsibility are at the bottom of Ariel's wishlist. Then there's that little detail that he's actually investigating her for the CIA...

The entire book is essentially what happens when two commitment-phobes meet and fall in love (if they only let themselves admit it). The story's plot is pretty weak - various elements are introduced, only to disappear into nowhere (what exactly happens to the kitten?), and the reasons for commitment-phobia are laid on pretty darned thick. Plus the "sex columns" idea is blatantly stolen from sex and the city, and they're neither original nor particularly interesting - it makes you wonder why she would even have devoted fans...

Luckily when it comes to writing the steamy scenes themselves, Sobrato doesn't leave the readers hanging. There's steamy sex - early and often and all over the place. And that, at least, is good.

It's ok for a read, if you read it for the sex, not the story, but not worth keeping. Especially not since the cover models are in the most awkward position I've seen in a while, and the guy looks frighteningly like the non-sexy Robert Sean Leonard... ( )
