    Leslie Kelly has always been on my list of favorite writers for the Blaze line Her stories have plot as well as hot steamy sexy.The best part is, the sex doesn t take up the whole story In fact, in Double Take, Lindsey and Mike don t get it going on until halfway through the book Keep the two of them out of bed gave you time to get to know both characters and it really gave you time to fall for Mike I mean, why aren t there real guys out there like him And why can t I find one Oh yes, this Leslie Kelly has always been on my list of favorite writers for the Blaze line Her stories have plot as well as hot steamy sexy.The best part is, the sex doesn t take up the whole story In fact, in Double Take, Lindsey and Mike don t get it going on until halfway through the book Keep the two of them out of bed gave you time to get to know both characters and it really gave you time to fall for Mike I mean, why aren t there real guys out there like him And why can t I find one Oh yes, this is romance novel and these kinds of guys don t exist.Drat Because Mike is one awesome guy He s kind, smart, sweet, funny I mean the scene when he finds some of her work related toys was priceless I laughed out loud There aren t many authors that can make me laugh, especially romance writers, Leslie is one of them, the other is Stephanie Bond.Oh and back to the work related toys, which are sex toys because Leslie is a sex therapist that is just a little bit infamous for some research she did That research is part of the reason she s staying on the island for a few months Ah, Thinkgasms I won t explain, you ll just have to read it to find out.I also loved the small town mentality going on in Wild Boar However some of the ultra conservative views you see with certain townspeople make you think you are in the south and not on an island in Michigan.This was a super, fun read Great for the poolside, if you have one

    Do you think it s possible to be a less than conspicuous newcomer on a small island with small town ways Apparently, Lindsey Smith, a sex therapist, underestimates the small minds and power of gossip when she escapes a media frenzy poking fun at her work and threatening her career Enter Mike Santori, the new police chief from Chicago Hot, sexy and handsome, Mike is on probation, to see if he is a fit for Wild Boar Island Is it no wonder these two find a magical connection, especially after Do you think it s possible to be a less than conspicuous newcomer on a small island with small town ways Apparently, Lindsey Smith, a sex therapist, underestimates the small minds and power of gossip when she escapes a media frenzy poking fun at her work and threatening her career Enter Mike Santori, the new police chief from Chicago Hot, sexy and handsome, Mike is on probation, to see if he is a fit for Wild Boar Island Is it no wonder these two find a magical connection, especially after Mike accidently discovers Lindsey s sex toy collection, which she swears is only for research What red blooded American male could resist the fantasies they invoke, especially if he adds the beautiful and intelligent Lindsey into the mix As these two grow closer, and their banterbawdy, their relationship becomes an explosively steamy romp that only the small town nasties could possibly threaten to cool Will Lindsey bow to the pressure and run Will Mike be able to convince her that nothing matters beyond the intimate and trusting world they have created Double Take by Leslie Kelly is a sexy, erotic and emotional tale of love, and learning to trust completely, opening a door in the protective walls that can be built Fun, teasing and filled with humorous moments of witty banter, Leslie Kelly s style is fast paced and crisp From the stuffy residents to the creepy deputy, not a character was wasted to help create this hot and romantic read I received an ARC edition from Harlequin Blaze in exchange for my honest review.Publication Date May 1, 2014Publisher Harlequin Blaze ISBN 9780373797998Genre Adult Contemporary RomanceNumber of Pages 224Available fromBarnes Noble

    I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Harlequin in exchange for an honest review Lindsey is a very independent woman She had a difficult childhood and learned the only one she could depend on was herself And she d done well with that until she literally falls into Mike s arms Confused by her want to protect everyone s images mixed with her ability to hide behind the walls she s built and her growing desires to not only give Mike her body but her trust, Lindsey must I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Harlequin in exchange for an honest review Lindsey is a very independent woman She had a difficult childhood and learned the only one she could depend on was herself And she d done well with that until she literally falls into Mike s arms Confused by her want to protect everyone s images mixed with her ability to hide behind the walls she s built and her growing desires to not only give Mike her body but her trust, Lindsey must learn the true definition of intimacy or risk losing everything.After an on the job injury Mike loses not only his girlfriend but also his desire to be a cop in a place he wasn t able to make a difference in Moving out of Chicago and into the middle of nowhere was an opportunity he jumped at, but even though the small town is wearing on him he wouldn t change it for anything, because being there is what brought Lindsey into his life She sends his heart soaring from the moment they meet, but before he can have her the way he truly wants he has to break down every last one of the barriers she s built around herself.I enjoyed the premise of this story, but had difficulty following the timeline It would jump forward days at a time, sometimes in the middle of a chapter, and mostly without proper indication Just when you start to wonder if you re still reading about the same or next day it ll mention exactly how many days had passed Because of time skipping the main focus is solely on the two main characters and any sub story that sneaks in disappears without further reference It may be just me, but I wished it would ve been a littlein depth into not only Lindsey and Mike but the characters around them as well.My Favorite Laughable Moment A fallen box with scattered contents From the moment the box falls to the second Mike walks out of the door I found myself laughing hysterically Well there was one steamy moment in there that kept my tears of laughter at bay, but it too only added to making it one of my favorite parts of the book Overall, I give Double Take 3.5 Stars

    Double Take is about Lindsay Smith and Mike Santori Lindsay, a sex therapy researcher, is being a top laughing stock when she theorized that orgasms could be thought up In order to save her job and career, she has agreed to her friend on Wild Boar Island, Michigan to substitute her class for her while her friend is on maternity leave Mike Santori has taken the job as Chief of Police at Wild Boar Island After several close calls as a policeman, Mike needed to assess his life If he passed pro Double Take is about Lindsay Smith and Mike Santori Lindsay, a sex therapy researcher, is being a top laughing stock when she theorized that orgasms could be thought up In order to save her job and career, she has agreed to her friend on Wild Boar Island, Michigan to substitute her class for her while her friend is on maternity leave Mike Santori has taken the job as Chief of Police at Wild Boar Island After several close calls as a policeman, Mike needed to assess his life If he passed probation as the new Police Chief, would he still be part of his family s life in Chicago Being a cop is all he knows and he doesn t want to be back on the Chicago Police Department.Meeting Lindsay on the ferry boat wasn t what he was expecting He knew that Lindsay was staying on the island short term and would leave when her friend return from maternity leave What Mike didn t expected from Lindsay was discovering that she has a box of sex toys.Lindsay was mortified She didn t plan to take box of sex toys to Wild Boar Island She misled Mike that she was a school teacher when she is far from it Another thing is that Lindsay believed that she was incapable of having an intimate relationship with a man.Mike was just the man to show Lindsay how to have an intimate relationship.There are some scenes in this book that I cracked up laughing Lindsay and Mike make a very good couple on a island where the head town council person is self righteous and prudish to a Wild Boar Island cop who believed he is entitled and the next in line to be Police Chief after his uncle retired and who loved to sexual harass attractive women The only thing that made sense was Lindsay and Mike s relationship on the small island town.This book is sexy, erotic, and humorous What , it is about Lindsay learning to trust to gain aintimate relationship I also have to say that I just love the way the book end when Mike confronted Lindsay for leaving the island.I was given this book by the publisher through Net Gallery for an honest review All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review

    My review cross posted from Wit and Sin Double Take is a fast paced, sexy read with two protagonists who meet when their lives are at a crossroads Mike s a cop who tired of constantly putting his life on the line while working for the Chicago P.D He s seeing if life in the slow lane as a small town chief of police is for him, and his plans don t involve being fiercely attracted to Wild Boar Island s newest substitute teacher While Mike s a hot, pro My review cross posted from Wit and Sin Double Take is a fast paced, sexy read with two protagonists who meet when their lives are at a crossroads Mike s a cop who tired of constantly putting his life on the line while working for the Chicago P.D He s seeing if life in the slow lane as a small town chief of police is for him, and his plans don t involve being fiercely attracted to Wild Boar Island s newest substitute teacher While Mike s a hot, protective hero who s easy to like, it s the subject of his desire who really makes Double Take memorable Lindsey Smith is a sex therapist who needs to lie low after the media turns her serious research into a meme worthy joke I not only adored Lindsey, my heart broke for her She s a hardworking, intelligent woman who doesn t deserve the ridicule heaped on her.Unfortunately, Wild Boar Island may not be the best place for Lindsey to get a fresh start Though I m sure there are plenty of lovely residents in the small town, the ones highlighted in the story made me cringe and overall made the tale slightly less enjoyable But when the story isn t focused on Lindsey and Mike avoiding slimy men or self righteous harridans, it sparkles with humor and steams with sexual tension Both in bed and out, Mike and Lindsey make a great couple and it was a joy to watch them overcome their internal barriers most of them Lindsey s to get the happily ever after they deserve Double Take is erotic, emotional, and ultimately enjoyable Fans of author Leslie Kelly s Santori family will be delighted by the cameos some of her past heroes and heroines make As for me, Double Take is my first Santori tale and I m intrigued enough by these sexy Italians to take a peek into Ms Kelly s Santori backlist.Note I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review

    I really found Lindsey s career choice sex therapist a great one which of course brought to mind the awesome Meet the Fockers movie I also loved her Thinkgasm and sorta wish I could figure out how that whole thing works Lindsey gets a raw deal from her current employer because they don t want to deal with the notoriety of her Thinkgasm popularity, which is why she flees to Wild Boar Island when a position as a temporary teacher opens up her best friend held the position but had her bab I really found Lindsey s career choice sex therapist a great one which of course brought to mind the awesome Meet the Fockers movie I also loved her Thinkgasm and sorta wish I could figure out how that whole thing works Lindsey gets a raw deal from her current employer because they don t want to deal with the notoriety of her Thinkgasm popularity, which is why she flees to Wild Boar Island when a position as a temporary teacher opens up her best friend held the position but had her baby early and so is on unexpected maternity leave it works in the story.Mike s a rough and tough Chicago cop who moved to the island to get away from the rough streets, wanting something a bit calmer and less dangerous for a while while he evaluates his life He and Lindsey cross paths as she travels to the island for the first time, getting very sea sick along the way.This was an easy read and I enjoyed my time on the island thoroughly I liked the gossipy community which rang true for how I imagine small towns are I ve never lived in a tiny town like the one in this book, but having been in high school, I know how the gossip thing works The secondary characters, including the jerk deputy and witchy member of the town council, were fun and added some real flavor.So, overall, this book IMO deserves a 4 star rating Check it out if you can Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    As any reader knows, the hardest books to review or rate are the ones that are simply okay Nothing bad sticks out about the story, but there s also nothing huge that stays with me after finishing it, either.All I can say is Double Take was enjoyable while it lasted, but it did not leave me jumping up and down with excitement It was simply another romance lovely at times, witty at others, but lacking some development The jump from sexy times to love was a bit rushed, as with many category ro As any reader knows, the hardest books to review or rate are the ones that are simply okay Nothing bad sticks out about the story, but there s also nothing huge that stays with me after finishing it, either.All I can say is Double Take was enjoyable while it lasted, but it did not leave me jumping up and down with excitement It was simply another romance lovely at times, witty at others, but lacking some development The jump from sexy times to love was a bit rushed, as with many category romances.I liked Double Take and it was a very easy and quick read, but I can t see it making my list of favorites any time soon.For a fun, sexy read, Double Take may be just the sort of story that will appeal to many readers Even though it didn t wow me, I am still glad I requested it I m mildly curious about the rest of Mike s family, so when I need another quick escape, I may just pick up one of Leslie Kelly s previous books.3 1 2 STARS For my full review, including some of my favorite quotes from the book, please visit my blog,TBQ s Book Palace.TheBookQueen
