Product Description

Product Description

For Olivia Sullivan, love is more a four letter curse word than a sentiment. Growing up as the daughter of a small town mortician, guys didn’t warm to the fact there were dead people in her house. At thirty, taking over the family business and becoming the town Coroner helped to cement her undateable status. Of course her past sex history didn’t help matters either.

Attempt number one with her first love ended barely before it got started with a horrific latex allergy hospitalization. Attempt number two had him coming and then going with an undiagnosed heart condition. For the past three years, Olivia has closed up shop for fear of what might happen next in the bedroom.

After being forced to go single to her mother’s lingerie shower, Olivia stumbles into an out of town bar with one intention: find an able bodied stud to go home with to end her losing sex streak. Enter Holden Caulfield Mains aka Catcher, who earned his nickname not just from the book he was named for, but for the fact he was sure to catch the attention of any woman who came within a five mile radius. Waking up after a night of the most mind blowing sex she could have ever imagined, a horrified Olivia runs away thinking she’s left Catcher behind.

When Olivia’s small town is wracked by its first murder, she never could have imagined her one night stand would reappear in the form of the GBI’s lead investigator. To her mortification, Catcher isn’t ready to let go of their sizzling chemistry, and he doesn’t understand the meaning of no. As things start to heat up between them, the body count starts to rise, and they’re led on a wild goose chase from back woods mountain Nudist Colonies to altercations with the Dixie Mafia. Can Olivia and Catcher survive to solve the murder while also not succumbing to their explosive passion?

**I was provided an ARC for an honest review!**

I'm already a Katie Ashley fan so I'm familiar with her work but Drop Dead Sexy is a departure from her Runaway Train series and Vicious Cycle series. Drop Dead Sexy is a romantic comedy that made me LOL several times while I was reading it! I really liked both Olivia and Catcher but I found it was the secondary characters that made the book so great. I'm a Gilmore Girls fan if anyone reading this will understand. The secondary characters are kooky like citizens of Stars Hollow. This book would actually make a great movie!

I recommend that you read Drop Dead Sexy!

HASH(0x9c822f84) out of 5 stars ~ 5 Catcher and Liv Bug Stars ~ March 15 2016
By Jennifer H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What an amazingly funny and sexy read!! This book was so different from other Katie Ashley books, but still had what we love about a Katie Ashley book.

This book had a little bit of everything in it. There was humor, love, sex, mystery and suspense and also a totally swoony Hero. What more could you ask for from a 5 star read. This is Katie Ashley's debut into the Romantic Comedy style book and she NAILED it!!! This is probably my favorite book of hers. I thought the flow and pace of the story was excellent. Although I do want to give a heads up to readers who aren’t a fan of insta love. This book is most definitely an insta love, because the relationship between Catcher and Olivia happens in just a week’s worth of time. So if this isn’t your cup of tea, then you might want to pass on this book. I personally loved the speed Katie took with this couple.

Drop Dead Sexy is a standalone novel told from Olivia’s POV. We are introduced to Holden (Catcher) and Olivia. Olivia is a woman who hasn’t had the best luck with past romantic hook-ups. So she is bound and determined to change that. Her meeting Catcher was totally by chance. She went to a bar and he happened to be there. They hit it off right away and get to know each other….kind of ;) Olivia is a small town mortician and coroner and Catcher is a GBI agent. When Olivia meets Catcher she is set on having a one night stand with him, so color her surprised when she sees him again in her hometown when the town pharmacist is found murderer. Catcher is called in to run the investigation, but he is also after Olivia!!! He is determined to win her over. Will these two break down their walls and let love in?? You need to read this book to find out.

So while we follow the journey of Catcher and Olivia, Katie also created a storyline that is a mystery that needs to be solved. I loved the suspenseful aspect of the story. It was so captivating I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Built into that though we also got some great banter between all of the characters in this story, that I was laughing out loud many times.

If you are looking for a book that has it all, but overall is a fun and sexy read, then you won’t want to miss this book!! Definitely a favorite of mine of 2016.

2 stars only..Sorry author Katie Ashley but this story was just too silly for me. It was just to over the top, from Olivia's first two sexual experiences( one was a near death and the second was a actual death ), to gun shooting funerals to meeting Catcher who talks to Olivia for the first time like he is a bad mannered porn star , and that unfortunately never stopped throughout the entire read. Ugh ! From the part where the town's friendly neighborhood pharmacist is found to have 2 penises , Yes I just rolled my eyes and said"damn another silly, dumb downed read I just ordered from a writer that I usually like".Where is the Katie Ashley who wrote the Proposition Series because that had some fun but also depth to the read , it wasn't just silly and juvinelle like this story , and what about your book the" Pairing "which was so so good and romantic .I just didn't get the humor of this ridiculous silly read , the grandma was funny but that would have been enough. You have a juvinelle" who done it" read , with Catcher one of the main characters who talked like a bad porno star and it just took away from this read for me. I know the author was probably going for zany /funny but it just didn't work for me personally. I miss your heart and soul reads ,Melody of the heart, Beat of my heart, those were really good reads too.You can still have humor but also please tell a good story, and you proved that in all the other reads that you can do that.This read however could have been so much better without 90 percent of what came out of Catcher 's mouth and without the 2 penis corpse and the "lost my penis killer".Yikes.Just a miss for me. If you like a over the top couple with a over the top mystery story line then this book is for you.

HASH(0x9cca12d0) out of 5 stars Witty Banter Overkill, Immature Characters March 22 2016
By Carr676 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Olivia finds herself jonesing for some loving after an extremely long dry spell, and finds what she's looking for with Catcher.
These are two individuals, purportedly in their 30's, acting and speaking like high schoolers. The witty and inane banter goes on and on and.... The thinking woman's romance books are few and far between - you'll only find insta-love and orgasm overkill in this overcooked romance.
My main issue with this book is the characters were both silly and over the top. One's a mortician and the other is an officer of the law, both of whom you'd think would have some degree of maturity befitting their respective ages and station. But no, both talk and act like co-eds pledging for a fraternity.
And there is so much talking instead of doing, I got dialogue burn out. I had to DNF at about 75% because the getting to know you/sex/let's talk some more/sex/do you ever want kids/more sex rinse, repeat stuff was nothing I hadn't read a few dozen times before.
I appreciate the hard work the author put into writing this book, but I could feel my IQ dropping as I continued reading it. It's forgettable and lackluster at best.

HASH(0x9cca11c8) out of 5 stars A fast-paced, humorous, quirky romantic comedy with a side of mystery, danger, and suspense. March 15 2016
By K. Bias - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
4.5/5 stars
Olivia's life is a little unique. She's a young mortician and coroner. She deals with crazy families on daily basis. Her love life has been a disaster of epic proportions. And she has now decided that her sexual dry spell needs to end. Olivia is capable, smart, pretty, and outspoken, but unaware of her true attractiveness. She tends to feel awkward especially in social situations and with men.

In a bar in the boonies, she meets the sexy, cocky, unfiltered Catcher Mains. He has charisma and a rugged charm, but he also spells trouble. Little did she know how it would affect her life.

All she wanted was a night of really good sex without issues, but she got more than she expected. It was the hottest night of her life and she actually liked Catcher, But one-night-stands don't usually turn into relationships and this girl knows when to stop when she is ahead, so she did the proactive walk of shame and left him in her dust.

But a murder in her neck of the woods, brings in the GBI and Agent Catcher Mains right to her doorstep. Thrown together by the investigation, Olivia can't escape Catcher's company, charm, or advances. But they are about to find more trouble than they bargained for.

Liv and Catcher find themselves on various surprising adventures as they investigate this case, and at times they cannot ignore their chemistry that seems to simmer even in inappropriate settings. They are combustible, have a fun rapport, and have a mutual understanding of each other's jobs and commitments. Liv has been longing to feel sexually satisfied, but also safe and protected. And she brings out the possessive, protective alpha in Catcher. Their banter is flirty, sexy, witty, and sometimes downright dirty.

The situation they find themselves in seems to facilitate the intensity of their chemistry and feelings fairly quickly, but I believed in their connection. Catcher is a take control kind of guy and knows what he wants, and I found that sexy and endearing. He manages to make Liv feel more intelligent and beautiful, despite her tendency to be a bit klutzy or end up in awkward situations. They seemed to bring out the best in each other and accept each other quirks and all.

The side characters added more drama, fun, and some laugh-out-loud moments especially her outspoken Grandmother Pease. Many of the unusual characters surrounding the case added to the mystery and suspense, but also provided some of the surprises too. This story definitely goes in some unexpected directions at times.

This is a fast-paced, humorous, quirky romantic comedy with a side of mystery, danger, and suspense. It is a bit more slapstick at times, but I found myself grinning and laughing at the crazy adventures these two find themselves in. . I might have even yelled "holy crap!" out loud a few times. This was a bit different than other Katie Ashley books, but still had her likable characters and engaging sense of humor even if it was a bit more daring, crass, and tongue-in-cheek. There were some definite twists and surprises, and it was not predictable. I thought it was funny, sweet, sexy, and romantic. I really liked their personalities and loved this couple together. And I liked the whole whodunnit aspect of the plot as well.

HASH(0x9cca13b4) out of 5 stars Funny, Sexy, Must Read! March 15 2016
By Jen O - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A RomCom from Katie Ashley was just what I expected. This woman is funny. My kind of humor is found throughout this book. I highlighted so many areas in this book. Some of the humor had me snort laughing and giggling. Where does she come up with these things?

Holden (Catcher) Mains is seriously perfect. “Fine. But wear a skirt. I wanna finger-bang you on the road.” This is sent via text to Olivia. Yup, that’s the Catcher that is throughout this story. He was fun, sexy, and very fine. I loved the banter between these two. All I’m going to say is that the part with the herbs will have you dying. I wonder is Ms. Olive can give me some of those if that’s what really happens?

“You know, you were kind of a Neanderthal back there, which is terribly unattractive to a feminist like me.” When he started to protest, I put my finger over his lips. “But by the same token, I’ve never had a man who cared enough about me to be so aggressively possessive. And God help me, I liked it. I liked it a lot.” Olivia is very well written. I think she may be one of my favorite Katie Ashley heroines. She a strong personality, but together with Catcher it works. You can definitely see and feel the instant connection in these two. She’s also funny as Hell.

Overall, this book was funny, intriguing and full of mystery. I read as fast as I could to see who did it and why. The plot twists were unexpected and I love that about a book. I hate when I can figure out the way the author is going early on. That kind of ruins it for me. You will have none of that in this story. Have fun guessing and enjoy the ride that Katie Ashley takes you on.
