As the webmistress for one of the Northeast’s hottest dating sites, Hunk Du Jour, Jenny Talbot is no stranger to reading the applications of potential clients. But when the latest application that crosses her inbox belongs to Ty Randall, the guy she broke up with a mere twenty-seven days ago, she does a double take. Reading what Ty wants in bed not only gets Jenny hot, it also makes her rethink ending their relationship. All she longed for was a little more spice in the bedroom—okay, a lot more—but he let her go without an argument. Faced with the possibility that Ty may really be moving on, getting her ex back becomes more appealing than ever. But will revealing exactly what she needs allow Jenny to finally experience ultimate pleasure or will she drive away the man she loves for good?

Ex sex is the best sex. Seems like an old adage, but it’s true. Or at least it is in the case of Ex Appeal by Cari Quinn.

When this title became available, I jumped on it. I only wish I hadn’t had to put it aside. I so loved the ride. The descriptions nabbed me from page one. I couldn’t put this book down.

Ms. Quinn writes hot, no doubt, but this story takes the cake and adds crayons. Yeah, I loved the art angle and the creative use of edible crayons. The love scenes darned near melted my screen, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Although I couldn’t completely get a bead on what Ty and Jen looked like, it wasn’t an issue. The chemistry between them was so powerful, I found myself rooting for them even when I wasn’t sure why they split. If I had any issues, it was the lack of communication between them, but, and this is the key, their failure to talk is realistic. It was like watching two of my friends who I know should be together, butting heads because they can’t see the obvious — they love each other. It worked perfectly.

I’m referring this story to all my friends. It’s hot, sticky, and a breeze to read. If you want a story that will stay with you, and characters you won’t forget, then you need to read Ex Appeal. I give it 4.5 cherries.
