To Purchase

Blurb: She wants a boyfriend for Valentine's and her husband wants to deliver.
Tori has come to the realization that her marriage lacks the spark it had in the beginning. She and her husband argue more than anything else and she foresees a nasty break-up on the horizon if something doesn't change. When he asks her what she wants for Valentine's Day, her answer is scandalous and straightforward—a boyfriend.
Rather than be upset, her husband is intrigued by the idea and sets out to make it happen. Tori has set herself—and him—an impossible goal and her prospects aren't that promising. But she's determined to have a boyfriend in time for the most romantic holiday of the year.

Review: I've said it before and I'll say it again, a review is just an opinion. When I read the blurb I was intrigued. When I started the story I was interested. As I continued I found several things that just did not work for me. As a mother I found it inappropriate that she disclosed her search for a boyfriend to her triples (Age 7) even though they heard about it from a family member first. I had issues with the husband who, even though he is the one who found he the perfect boyfriend (who I liked very much) insisted on watching them have sex and brought a bowl of popcorn as a snack while he watched another man do his wife.

Several times Tori refered to her children as monsters and it did not come across to me as playful. The boyfriends reference to "I may be white, but I'm black below the belt" didn't really work for me. And the reference that he son Cory would either grow up to go into some soft of law profession or be a serial killer struck me as a bit over the top.

That being said....The hot sex rocked! Even if the cover wasn't that great. I know I know, you are probably thinking I will never read another from this author, right? Well you would be wrong. Ms Renquist also writes under D. Renee Bagby and you will find a review for one of her books here too! And I adored it.
