I ready a great book this week - Great-Aunt Sophia's Lessons for Bombshells by Lisa Cach. Although I'm sure this may send a few people running, I have to say I found it hotter than 50 Shades of Grey. Yes, I'm one of the people who didn't really enjoy 50 Shades. Or the second in that series. I'm patiently withholding judgment on the third til after I read it. At least they're quick enough reads that I can get through them anyway. Heavens - I just got terribly off-track again!
Here's the summary from Amazon:
Grace Cavanaugh is hell-bent on proving her Women’s Studies dissertation thesis that beauty only leads to misery. And what better research subject than her great-aunt Sophia, a former B-movie star? Now eighty-five and facing surgery, Sophia has asked Grace for company. . . .So onto the sexy part. Declan seduces Grace without even touching her the first time. Of course that's something that makes it pretty easy to communicate in a book, and be really steamy with the only thing missing being his real voice.
Grace imagines a helpless, lonely old woman, forced to turn to a great-niece she barely knows. Instead she finds the aging diva holding court in a Pebble Beach mansion, oozing a bombshell-itude—arthritis and wrinkles be damned—that captivates every male in sight. To Grace’s dismay, her greataunt decides a perfect distraction would be transforming the frumpy feminist into a femme fatale who purrs for her suitors . . . or devours them. She ordains classes in everything from carb cutting to lingerie, culminating in a challenging final exam. The newly svelte Grace must test her wiles—on both devilishly handsome and morally corrupt Declan and sensitive but painfully awkward Dr. Andrew.
Newly unleashed desires—and the discovery of a closely held family secret— threaten the bookworm-turned-babe’s entire feminist upbringing. Her thesis gone sadly awry, Grace wonders if her great-aunt is right: Will trusting her heart lead her to find beauty in the most unexpected places?
I loved following Grace's transformation. As I read in my hoodie and jeans, I imagined what it would be like to be taught to be so sexy. Sounded like fun, no matter how liberated she wanted to think she was.
While this book was a sassy, entertaining read, it made today's post because it was sexier than I expected in a pop-fiction time-waster. :)
What's your recommendation for a sexy book?
