Austin Jericho can't believe how much Maddie Hale has changed. She's no longer the shy, innocent schoolgirl who brought him blueberry muffins and tutored him after school. Now she's drop-dead gorgeous and sinfully sensuous, as well. The only problem is, Austin has just decided to settle down with a sweet little wife, and although he hasn't met that sweet little wife yet, Maddie's definitely not fitting the bill. Maybe a fling wouldn't be such a bad thing, but Austin wants more - not only does he want a sweet wife, but he also wants that prime piece of property he's been offered if he can find marriage material before Miss Marshalyn leaves for Florida. Will he give in to his desire for Maddie, or will he push her away to find someone like she used to be?
This book was h-o-t! It definitely lived up to the Blaze standards, and then some! I could identify with Madeline, since once upon a time I was an ugly duckling. I was glad that she was able to make something of her life and take control. Austin was also incredible, and you could just feel the sparks when you picked up this book! I can't wait to read the next book in the series, "The Fantasy Factor," by the same author. The author of this book just draws you into the story so well, and uses humor as well as sizzling passion to make this a great read. Definitely a keeper, but be forewarned - if you aren't already hooked on the Blaze line of books, you probably will be once you read this book! :)
Madeline Hale has come back to her Texas hometown on a mission. Twelve years ago, she'd been a chubby bookworm infatuated with bad boy Austin Jericho. She still has the brains - after all, she's chief chemist for a cosmetics company - but now she also has the body and attitude to match. And she plans to use them - along with a new aphrodisiac lotion she's created - to finally get Austin where he belongs - in her bed....
Austin doesn't know what's hit him. He's wanted Maddie forever, but he always figured she was too good for him. Only suddenly, the tables have turned. The sweet girl has turned into a sex siren, and Austin has ditched his wicked ways to settle down with a nice little wife.
But Maddie smells so sweet, feels so soft and tastes so wonderful. There's only one solution. The Sex Solution.
And it's going to be very, verygood....
