After reading Money Shot, the second book from Susan Sey, I can say for sure that she writes easy to love heroes, has a talent for writing some good fun snark, and leaves me marking her books all over the place with possible favorite quotes.
Goose, a female Secret Service Agent, finds herself on a strange snowy island investigating a possible murder threat on the governor. It just may be the local park ranger and former military man Rush Guthrie that plans to take out the governor.
In the beginning I had a hard time getting into Money Shot and understanding some of Goose’s physical actions towards Rush. But the hero Rush saved me and knowing how much I adored Susan Sey’s first book, Money, Honey, I kept reading. As I got to know more about the full cast of quirky characters in the book and saw how Goose interacted with each of them and more of her real personality came out, everything else in the book started to flow together for me.
Goose and Rush are not without their personal internal struggles though, and each character had to come to terms with their own pasts before they could get down to dealing with their increased feelings towards each other. Several times throughout the book I just wanted to yell at Goose to tell Rush what the hell was going on with her, so the two of them could start getting down to some sexy business. One of things I think Susan Sey does so well in this book is the way she handles the character of Rush. He could have really been this alpha male style of character that tried to force Goose into bed sooner than she was truly ready, but Rush was such a good guy in a very admirable way that it made him much more sexier to me.
The other characters in the book are very well developed and as a reader I felt like I really got to know their individual personalities. These characters, a sexy hero, fun and snappy dialogue, and an island full of interesting mischief made for an enjoyable read. I just wish Goose could have dealt with her personal issues a little sooner in the story so we could have enjoyed more naked time with Rush.
Because they were feasting – biting, snatching, gobbling each other up in huge, greedy mouthfuls. They’d both have marks in the morning, and a dark, primitive, satisfaction edged into the hunger. She’d wear the proof of his want when the sun came up again. He’d wear hers. She smiled then, a fierce baring of her teeth, as she wrapped her legs around him, fell into the madness.
Be sure to stop by again later today. Susan Sey will be here with a fun guest post and a giveaway.
