Sex Drive

Wild Ride to Love, book 1

Meet Theresa Fallon, one of four of the Fallon sisters. She is the oldest of them. With her IQ being around genius level, she is organized, realistic, cynical, and a little dull. Her sisters would never think of her letting her hair down and just going with the flow. In her own right, Theresa is a very straightforward kinda person; what you see is what you get. She wasn't always a cynical person towards love and men; however, thanks to Jeffrey, her first husband of three months, she has now sworn off men. Before Jeffrey, she had not thought highly of herself. Then after him... what she had left went down to hardly anything. Now academically, she knew she rocked. That is her area in life where she excels. So, what self-esteem she had of herself, Jeffrey took that away from her. She never thought herself to be sexy, attractive or one of those woman who could attract a good looking guy. That is all about to change... She is about to meet one man that is going to rock her world from inside out!
Damien Black is every woman's fantasy. He is definitely my walking sex on a stick man. He is charming, very easy on the eyes, has the body of a very athletic man, and was voted one of the country's ten sexiest bachelors (in Australia). He is man who believes in himself, exudes sexual awareness. Oh yea, and is a wee bit cocky about his sexuality. Being single and "famous" - he is an author - sometimes it’ not all what it's cracked up to be. What does his heart really want, love or lust? Will looking away from those that fall at his feet prove to be what he has been looking for...
It’s a ten-hour flight from Sydney, Australia to Honolulu, Hawaii. Then from Honolulu to Vancouver, B. C. is the itinerary for Theresa Fallon. Theresa is on her way to her parent’s home in Vancouver, B. C. to meet up with her other two sisters to give their baby sister the wedding of her dreams. Damien has the same itinerary, except he has a lay over for the night in Honolulu. He was headed to Vancouver for a book tour. A New York publisher bought the U.S. rights to his books and was sponsoring the tour. He was in demand.
What could two people do on a ten-hour flight? What happens when one person never steps out of their comfort zone and the other lives to skirt theirs? Can they find love, or at least the start of love, 30,000 feet in the air?
I absolutely love this whole book. Ms. Lyons had me mesmerized from the first page to the last. I could not turn the pages fast enough, nor get enough of the story fast enough to satisfy the inner hussy within. It was a non-stop ride - kinda like the flight!! I love the character tension Ms. Lyons created right off the bat with Theresa and Damien. The banter between them is very realistic and the sexual tension is very hot! I love how Theresa, being a little naive as she is in some areas of life, never holds her tongue or backs down. She knows that she is not cut for this kinda thing (what thing... I cannot tell you), but she tosses common sense out the window and takes what is being given to her. Can she do this and keep her heart out of it?
Damien enjoys life and all it has to offer, including women. But when presented with a challenge, he is one not to back down and Theresa is his challenge. She intrigues him in ways no woman ever has... but just how well could he get to know this "all work and no play" woman within one flight...
Ms. Lyons made sure to give dimension to the sisters as well. I have a feeling I am going to love to see this family grow, lol! I found myself completely absorbed in the Fallon’s. I can say that I cannot wait to see where Ms. Lyons takes us next. I hear it is on a train...Wooohoooo!!!
I can say that I loved this book quick and spicy read. Ms. Lyons wrapped me up in her story and I was left craving more. This story was NOT short on romance and had just the right amount of banter, sexy loving and just plain fun!
My pro: I enjoyed how Ms. Lyons wrote each chapter in the mindset of Theresa & Damien. What was even more enjoyable was that each chapter picked up where the last one left off.
My con: The over use word of queue.
I am proud to say that I have found a new to me author that is going on my automatic buy list! Planes, trains and automobiles... I am so ready to see what else Ms. Lyon has in store for us!!!!!
