One night is all she wanted.
Georgia Burke is on a mission to find a sexy one night stand. After she catches her cheating ex with her friend, in Georgia’s apartment no less, she visits her brother in his sleepy lakeside town to regroup. Her first night at Fox Lake and she finds the Drunken Duck pub and puts her plan into motion. Almost.
Will Calder is looking for the real deal. He’s done with the short-term flings and wants to find a woman ready for everything he has to offer. Will’s determined to show Georgia more than just a single night of debauchery and he’ll do everything in his power to keep her close.
Georgia’s going to find Will’s idea of the perfect woman isn’t what she expected. She’ll have to face her own insecurities to land the sexy contractor or settle for the vacation fling she anticipated.
What an incredibly awesome novelette (roughly 53 pages) that will get you hooked into the world Cora Cade is stealthily building. Tapped is an offshoot of Cade’s A Day Of Pleasure series and I must say, her writing just gets better and better. What I loved most about this short book was the ability Cade had to not only give us an entire world, but create characters that were well rounded, real and incredibly entertaining.
Georgia is the type of heroine I adore. Ballsy but sweet. She’s the type of woman who has self confidence in spades. This aspect is even better because she’s not your typical romance book heroine. She’s a size 16, not going to take anything from anyone, woman. It’s such a breath of fresh air to find a genuinely well wrote, incredible heroine who doesn’t fit in the industry mold. I loved her wit and just wished I could have had more of it. She constantly had me chuckling at her quick tongue, especially when put into situations with Will’s ex, or his *gulp* mother, after only having just met the man.
As a hero, Will is what dreams are made of. He was sheer perfection wrapped up in a smoking hot package. Who wouldn’t want a guy who could be sweet and endearing one minute and then pulling your hair and pounding into you the next moment? The sex scenes were very well done, believable and enough to set my kindle on fire. Will knew from the moment they met that Georgia was special, a keeper. I enjoyed watching him convince her to give their connection a chance.
The cast of supporting characters are lush and well fleshed out. While many of them are from Cade’s previous series, new readers will have no issues getting into the groove and latching on to them as I’ve done from the start. The sense of camaraderie and protection within the tight group of friends is deeply felt and I enjoyed the glimpse into their lives again, even if only in small amounts through Georgia’s eyes. I can’t wait to see where the series goes because I definitely need a few of these characters to get their own book, The single father sheriff? Yes. Will’s geeky brother? YES.
These 50 some pages felt like an entire book in the most wonderful way. Cade fits in so much in those pages that even with the length you feel like you’re part of the town, part of that family. I cannot wait to get more from this world and from this author! Entertaining, sexy and full of heart, Tapped is definitely a winner!
I give Tapped by Cora Cade 5 stars!
