Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Pros: It's a good sequel with logical relationship development in keeping with the characters. You want to turn the page and see what happens. It's seamlessly and impressively edited, blending the two stories and voices really well (proofing needs work, but I nitpick). I liked the story, loved the characters (especially Brandon) and it flowed nicely. Loved the description of the Penny Pincher, the funniest writing in the book.
Cons: It had too much sex---Whoa, did I just type that? Well, some of the scenes felt a bit gratuitous, like there was a quota to fill. If the purpose of a scene is clearly to discuss Eve, for example, you wonder why they are having the conversation en flagrante delecto instead of over chocolate croissants at the Bellagio or while playing slots. Not to say there weren't lots of good sex scenes in here: New Year's Eve, the parent's basement, the dressing room were all great, and no one writes the nookie like Dane and Hart; but some of the scenes, especially in the penthouse, blur a bit and were all a little too consistently serious in tone for me. Maybe it's me, but dang, you're in Vegas, baby, throw your clothes on and stroll through the Venetian or something, you can talk at Wolfgang Puck's as well as in bed, and the food's better.
The ending after Vegas wraps up a bit too fast, but overall it's a good read, just not quite as strong as "Taking Care of Business".
Kate's best friend Leah is in love with Brandon, but she's afraid of committing to him for a lot of reasons.
Eve's latest scheme and Leah finding a small velvet box tucked in Brandon's things, sends Kate and Leah fleeing to the ultimate get away destination - Las Vegas. Brandon and Dix are too stubborn and too in love to not follow their women. Some of what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but the good that comes out of a few days indulging in everything from buffets to public sex, comes back with them, including a new sense of what the couples want and don't want. Now, if they can just get the real world to cooperate, they'll have it made in the shade.
No Reservations is full of sex, romance, a little angst, several `I love you's', a lot of talking dirty, some public sex, and two really good stories too. Anyone who could put up with a woman like Eve and not completely lose their mind or haul off and kill her is a saint in my book. Kate is the perfect girlfriend. (as far as any red-blooded male would say.) She sends Dix to strip clubs, she loves sex, she's kinky, smart, beautiful, and fun. I learned a little from her. I admire Leah and Kate's confidence in themselves and their men. Kate is adventurous and a bit wild, while Leah is intelligent and in control. And they both know how to have fun. Dix is a little gruff and Brandon is a little more reserved, but they are both really hot in their own way. While I usually like dominance in men rather than women, there is something sweet, sexy, and very sincere about Brandon's desire to follow Leah's orders. He wants what she wants. It makes them happy and it turns them on. Their relationship is very genuine. On the flip side, Dix's light dominance in bed is hot as hell. There is a lot more fun than heartache in No Reservations.
The two women decide to make a run for it and spend some time together in Las Vegas and hopefully decide what to do about their respective troubles while they're there. However, the two men aren't going to take this desertion lying down and they follow their women to Sin City to make their intentions clear, and fight for their happy ever afters. What follows is a seriously fun and super sexy romp, which is also packed with feelings, lifestyles and planning for happy futures.
This is an erotic romance with a difference, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking to read a super well-written book with fun, sex and romance all snuggled between the covers.
