Holy shoot balls Can Jodi Redford write the sexy or can Jodi Redford write the sexy Seriously, guys, whenever the clothes start dropping, the heat index skyrockets Also, that warning Entirely accurate I really enjoyed watching Nick and Jana unravel Kevin s fears Nick fights dirty but it s the delicious kind of dirty that ends up with everyone sweaty and happy at the end Jana usually gets to end a couple of times, if you know what I mean You really can t think badly of a Nick, though He s such a giver I mean, he gives and gives and then he sits back and watches Kev give a little and then he steps in to give a little He s a very generous individual.I loved seeing how Ry, Bram and Lacey are getting along a year into their triad I loved that we got to see their families accepting of their relationships I loved the liberal application of candy cane flavored body paint Hee Those boys and their toys
First off, this book is a sequel to The Naughty List which I did not realize until I started reading It is not necessary to read the first book to enjoy Checking it Twice, but it was so much fun I have already ordered the first one.Jana and Kevin have know each other for five years and have been in love lust for most of that time Due to emotional issues in Kevin s past, he has resisted his feelings for her although Jana has done her best to seduce him He knows that he is incapable of giving Jana what she needs in a relationship Years ago, he even lost his best friend due to his problems.And now, he is leaving town for good.Jana loves Kevin and cannot understand why he won t give them a chance She is also worried about her feelings for Nick Although they have never met, they have carried on a long distance flirtation through phone and email Can she really be in love with two men So, guess who comes to town and just happens to be Kevin s long lost best friend Nick has regretted the end of his friendship with Kevin for years Now that he has found him, he is not going to lose him again He has also rea
This book was just as good as The Naughty List It had the steamy factor, with an added bonus of another sexual interest beside a threesome, but I m not sharing what it is This one was also heavy with emotional issues, but renewed my faith that love can overcome most any hardship that a lover has faced in their past This book is set about a year after The Naughty List,
For full review including excerpt and dialogue highlight, please visit Reader s Edyn at poor baby He has had a hard life of judgment And as commonly happens, if you hear it enough, you start to believe it Well Kevin believes with every fiber of his being that his sexual proclivities are born of evil and that indulging in them with someone he cares about would be punishment toward that person Consequently, he walked away from a budding relationship several years ago and has since never allowed anyone to get close enough to repeat the mistake At least a mistake in his mind But his intense attraction to Jana is making it increasingly difficult to deny her especially when she turns on the seduction act So he does what he does best plans to make a clean break and start over.Jana is hopelessly, madly in love with Kev and has been for some time She has pulled out all of the stops to entice him into her bed and hopefully in the way of a relationship, but so far nothing has worked She knows her window is closing, but she also knows that she affects Kev as much as he does her What can a girl do except keep trying But despite her hopeless infatuation with Kev, Jana also has a g
Checking it Twice is the follow up to Ms Redford s book The Naughty List In this book, Jana Colton is trying with all her might to get Kevin Monahan to pay attention to her The trouble is he is attracted to her, but because of what he perceives as his flaws, he refuses to act upon the desire that is within him He is taking the cowards way out and leaving altogether and he is even not man enough to tell Jana to her face Add an old friend into the mix that Jana is also attracted to and which man is going to win the girl Or perhaps they could come to some agreement and share well perhaps, if Kevin ever lets go of his personal demons and faces up to what is in front of him.I loved the first story in which the lesson is be careful who you email things to and also be careful of the things you email In this one, the lesson is that demons can be conquered with the right kind of love and affection, the help of good friends and even better lovers I am sure that Ms Redford didn t plan for her books to be used as teaching aids, far from it, but these characters learn about each other and they love and they also fear themselves and their perceived weaknesses and flaws but they are also not scared to take the risk to get the biggest prize of all, love and the partner or partn
Warning Reading this book could make you self combust Checking It Twice by Jodi Redford is hot, hot, hot I am giving it a 3.5 star rating because the story is good and the writing isn t bad It doesn t have a deep meaning or even a really deep plot line, but the characters are very likeable and it s a fun read I am giving it a heat rating of 5 because OH MY GOD Jodi can write some smut, let me tell you Jana Colton is in love with 2 men The first man has been a friend for years and has made it clear that he will not act on any attraction between them, no matter what she tries The second man has been a flirtation that she has shared with a man for almost a year, but she s never actually met him Now, he s shown up in her business and she is hooked What a confusing feeling to want both men so badly and to find out they have a history together You shouldn t love me, Jana I ll only hurt you Tears dampening her cheeks, she dropped on her haunches and stroked his jaw Not loving you would hurt Kevin Monahan has been friends with Jana for years He knows she wants from him than just a friendship and he shares that attraction ten times over, but he can never let that happen He is a pervert or at least that s
