Kate's Crew - Jayne Rylon

Nothing’s sexier than a man, or five, with power tools.

Sultry summer heat has nothing on the five-man crew renovating the house next door. No one could blame Kate for leaning out the window for a better view of the manscape. The nasty fall that follows isn’t part of her fantasy—but the man who saves her from splattering the sidewalk is definitely the star.

When Mike personally attends to her injuries, she realizes her white knight in a hard hat has a tender side, giving her no choice but to surrender to the lust that’s been arcing between them since day one. In the aftermath of the best sex of her life, she whispers her most secret desire: to be ravaged by his crew.

She never expected Mike would dare her to take what she wants—or that the freedom to make her most decadent desires come true could be the foundation for something lasting…

Ok this one will be a quicky...kinda like this book! lol It really took me one hour to read it! lol

So Kate friends 5 guys remodeling a house next door to her. One guy in particular has taking a liking to her and when she falls out of her window trying to check out the man meat next door he tends to her wounds himself! ;o) She quickly finds herself in the middle of a boys gone wild show leaving her yearning for way more than what she expected to get!

Alright...I commend ANYONE who a) Can write and get published & b) Can read books that don't pull at your heart strings b/c I cant do either! lol This book (to me) was too unconnected and smutty for my taste...ok youre saying "well duh Monroe its Erotica...come on 5 dudes and one chick...what did you think was gonna happen"? BUT let me remind you that just b/c its wild and crazy doesnt meant that the author cant lure us in with some great romance. Look at what Maya Banks did with Colters Woman...she still managed to show a great bond between all the was HOT SEXY and STILL LOVING!

In this book you get thrown into a mixture of basically lust and not so much love. Some may not mind that HOWEVER I DO! I need to feel connected with SOMEONE!!! Mike and Kate meet and kinda fall for each other but you never really felt a connection other than lust. Then she get with his crew and the crew gets with each other (which btw was my first m/m I had ever read lol). Idk it was a bit too much for me and I like to think Im opened minded in my books!

Oh and one more sex scenes I hate when authors are too wordy. Sometimes saying less is using the word labia cracks me up! lol dumb it works better for me! ;o)

Ok so ill break it down for you like this...if you are looking for something hot and lustful BUT without any connection to romance this one would be for you...otherwise skip over this one.

Oh PS I do love the cover though! lol

I give this book a total of...

I have seen mixed reviews for this one hon. And I know what you mean about it being a little much.

I am sorry that this was your first m/m book. Not the best for your first. Email me if you want a sweet/hot m/m book...

But you still did a good review. You were honest, but not brutally so that put the author and her work down. I have been seeing reviews like that lately and it is leaving a bad taste in my mouth. So, it is nice to see honest, but nice.

I absolutely HATE writing reviews for books I didnt like b/c no matter what I think ANYONE who can write and get published are awesome! I think it takes guts and a special talent to do what they do so when a book comes along that doesnt tickle my fancy I get sad. This author CAN write...but I had to be honest like you said b/c not everyone can like everything out there! ;o)

Thanks for being supportive! lol I always worry Im a meany pants! ;op And ya email me some you think I may like! You have my email! ;o)

Well, hmmm. I am a self proclaimed romance junkie so if there's sex, there simply must be romance. Just my personal preference though. I'll probably pass this one by.

Ya this one wouldn't be the book for you then! I gotta have my sex linked to love as well. What can we say...we are hopeless romantics! ;)

Wow, as I'm scrolling through my google reader this cover definitely caught my interest. Too bad it isn't written that great :( You definitely need some emotional stuff to go along with the sex.

I was actually hoping this was a m/m..the cover is kind of leaning that way..LOL!

Too bad you didn't like this one. But you explained why, so even though you didn't enjoy the book, you weren't mean in your review. You did good.

So now I'm curious what book Cecile has in mind for you! Come on Cecile! LOL
