Both Derek and Reese were lovable, interesting characters. If you read this book, be ready for laugh out loud scenes, witty dialogue, sizzling chemistry and steamy love scenes! The suspense was very well written and well plotted. I couldn't put this book down! This book a sexy, fun-filled ride from start to finish!
Erin McCarthy is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. SMART MOUTH is a not to be missed book! If you haven't read anything by Erin McCarthy yet, pick this one up and see for yourself what a great author she is. I know you'll want to pick up the rest of her books!
(...) The characters struggle to keep their relationshipship while also excelling at their respective jobs. The secondary characters are okay (liked his sister - even his ex-wife had a couple of interesting scenes - though his heart to heart with her seemed unrealistic as her character did not seem the sort to give up that sort of information) and Derek's two co-workers seem as if they're headed for their own romantic sequel. Reese's brothers also seemed to have book potential. Maybe a love interest for Derek's little sis?
My main problem with the book, I suppose, is that Derek seemed like a bumbling FBI guy. He had a bad knee! Why was he in the feild? That's not a thing that can be hidden in that type of profession. The wrong car, giving Reese information, having her involved... I don't know. It worked for the plot, but he came off as stupid at his job. And after a while it just made Reese look annoying. Was she trying to screw-up his career to excel at hers?
All in all - A beach or plane ride read. Lots of fluff and fun.
These are not perfect characters and I think this was one of the reason's why I liked them so much. Reese is a "little spoiled aspiring for a real by-line reporter", and Derek is a " I better not screw this one up or else my brilliant FBI agent career is memorex" kind of guy. Despite these flaws these two characters really shine and their chemistry and growing relationship is HOT!!! Basically you have a mix up when an informate to a big case that Derek has been working on for a long time leaves his information in the wrong car. The car just so happens to be the rental car that Reese has contracted out for her stay in the windy city while she covers a society wedding. Could her life be more boring? Not for long, before either one of them knows it they have both found what they haven't been looking for and nothing will be the same.
This was a fun, fast paced read that as stated earlier combines great characterization, fun plotting, and great chemistry between the two main characters. This read is quite sensual but not over done, and certainly not used as page filler. Plenty of laugh out loud moments as well as some great secondary characters that I feel may just call out for their own story. Ms. McCarthy is now an author I will purchase simply because her name is on the cover. Who said you can't judge a book by it's cover?
From the way the characters leap into bed with each other within a quarter of an hour to the cringe-worthy disregard for reality in McCarthy's versions of FBI procedure and the news industry, there just seemed to be a general lack of effort.
And the scene where the FBI guy uses his gun as a sex toy...well, who likes to be thinking prudish thoughts about gun safety and bullets left in chambers while reading a sex scene?
Don't get me wrong, I really liked her anthology "Bad Boys Online". I encourage everyone to buy it. And to her credit, all her characters actually do spare a thought for safe sex. I'm not going to write Erin McCarthy off; I'll check out her next book. But her sophomore effort is, alas, sophomoric.

Witty dialogue & a cutesy romance but no real mystery or suspense. Good writing makes it readable, but I would have liked a bit more depth to both the plot and the character... Read morePublished on July 12 2009 by JJ
