Christina is an ordinary woman, working a dead-end job as a bank teller. When her late grandmother gives her the gift of a luxury vacation, she looks forward to the break from reality. But instead of an upscale resort, she arrives at a working ranch with three dead sexy cowboys. They may not offer to give her the spa treatment, but they're eager to please her in other ways.

Just when the relationship between Christina and her cowboys moves to the next level, she's forced to leave the ranch in order to protect the men she loves. She runs from them, knowing that if they catch her, she won't be able to stay away. But being together seems destined to failure. Can they overcome the obstacles facing their loving ménage?

Most of us know what it’s like to live from paycheck to paycheck and not be able to take a real vacation because life gets in the way. So when you read a book with a subject that we can all relate to in our everyday life it is not hard to be drawn into the plot.

Everyone needs a vacation to remember and Christina Wolfe may end up with the best vacation of her life. Christina comes to life between the pages of the first chapter creating a feeling of kinship with her and making her real in your minds eye. It is great to understand and share in her feelings on many things, such as not wanting to disappoint her dead grandmother who planned a vacation for her. Her rambling feeling on the trip to her vacation spot -- her dread to return home after the holiday is over to a job she hates and the every day stress of the big city life.

Straight-laced bank teller Christina is not prepared for the vacation that Gram’s had plans for her. When author Stacey Espino works her erotic magic by introducing the brothers Noah, Jake and James things really pick up and the plot thickens as they learn what the most important things are in life and learn to live life to the fullest.

Three brothers and two months of vacation makes for some very hot sex scenes and believe me Ms. Espino does not skimp on the details or cut corners in the telling of this story. I do have to add that the boys do not get along and have a lot of personal problems so you can be sure of some alpha male conflict between the three over Christina and their individual issues with her.

There are a few editing errors but nothing that takes away from the story itself and may have been corrected since I got my copy. Nevertheless, if you want a book that will jump-start your libido then Catch Me If You Can is the book for you. Good plot, yummy sex scenes, and characters that jump out at you and seem so real. I am glad I was able to add this one to my library and enjoyed reading it.
