Review: I will preface that this is not my typical genre of book. The author is not kidding when she warns of explicit sex scenes, as evident by the first line of the book. Under non-experimental conditions, I would have closed the book and moved on to something else. I admit to being a prude about certain vernaculars and “hard, thrusting cocks” never got me hot and bothered. But instead I continued, opting to give my typical three chapter test, {capture my attention by the end of the third chapter or be resigned to the incomplete stack}, and I am glad I did. Despite my objections to certain terms, this book is funny, charming, clever, and sensual. The sex scenes are not porn, but instead are both tantalizing and enticing. There is a tenderness that flows off the page and a delightful eroticism, in lieu of my above stated objections, that could steam up a mirror in no time. The mystery aspect was rather easy for me, but I am also the person who figures out 'Who Dunnit' in the first fifteen minutes of any crime drama, so I would not say it is blatantly obvious. Samson and Delilah are engaging, smoldering, and funny characters that you develop an attachment to very early in the book. I would definitely recommend this read. I hope to read the other volumes of the ScanGuards very shortly.

I was sold by "funny, charming, clever, and sensual". What else could you want in a story? Downloaded the novel to my Kindle!
