Goodreads Description :

Erotic romance writer Jenna Brooks lives an ordinary life in a quiet Oregon town, putting her sensual heart into her fiction rather than her everyday life. Deeply involved in her latest story about glamorous lovers on the run, she laughs off a carnival gypsy’s prediction that she’ll find everything she desires “between the sheets”—apparently those her DeskJet is printing. Because suddenly, Jenna finds herself drawn into her own stories, literally. When the seductive, mysterious Riley Stone rescues her from an attempted hit and run, she’s plunged into a reckless, wild relationship unlike anything she’s ever experienced—except on paper.

Meanwhile, Riley is feeling pretty upended himself. A specialist consultant with the FBI, he’s on a mission to derail a drug king-pin whose wealth and extensive real estate is managed by Jenna’s neighbor, he’d planned to ingratiate himself with Jenna just enough to gain access to her neighbor’s apartment so he can keep a close eye on his comings and goings. Instead, he finds himself not only drawn to Jenna, but falling for her, hard. On the heels of this realization comes the discovery that her new neighbor didn’t move in next door by chance: her father is the last hold-out against a drug-money fueled billion dollar development scheme and her neighbor plans to take and hold Jenna hostage until the necessary papers are signed.

As Riley struggles to keep Jenna safe, the romance they’ve woven could force them to pay the ultimate price: admitting they’ve fallen in love—for real.


The book was OK to me. It had a good story line but I felt it lacked in some area's. The romance between Jenna and Riley was lacking. They were obviously attracted to each other but she keep comparing him to the guys in the romance novels she writes. That was cute at the beginning but after awhile it got aggravating. They were moving things way to fast.

Jenna was a very trusting naive girl. I found that in some parts of the book I just wanted to punch her and tell her how big of an idiot she was being. Other times I actually did like her. I liked her most at the end of the book. She was actually  willing to fight and I like that she didn't just set on her butt and do nothing.

Riley, was an enjoyable character. I didn't love him, but I also didn't hate him. I liked that he wanted to save Jenna. I also thought that Jenna could cut him some slack about him lying to her. He did save her life.
