About Floored:Erin Upton is too embarrassed to tell the cops what she was really doing while her townhouse was burglarized, especially since the first officer on the scene is former nuisance next door Charlie Dwyer. Where’s the justice in the world when a neighborhood know-it-all grows up to be six-foot-three inches of solid muscle with gorgeous green eyes and a slow, sexy please-arrest-me-now-officer smile? It’s bad enough she’s wearing her robe and slippers—did he have to notice her fuzzy hand cuffs on the bathroom sink?
He’s arrogant as he ever was, which is fine by her—she’s too busy with her dance studio’s grand opening to make time for a man. But they keep crossing paths, and when Charlie offers to help her put in new flooring at the studio one night, things go from hammering nails to hammering each other in a hurry. And about those hand cuffs…
They agree it’s a one-time thing. But when that becomes a two-time thing, then a three-time thing, Erin starts to wonder if maybe she and Charlie could be a life-time thing. Her best friends Mia and Coco found love in unexpected places. Is it finally her turn?
Gah! This might be my favorite book in the Frenched series! I can’t decide. It’s sooooo close between this and Forked. But then, in my world, in case of a tie, the book with the dance tie-in always wins. 😛
I’m so jealous of Erin for owning a dance studio. Let’s just get that out there. Floored beats Forked because of ballet.
So let’s talk about the opening scene. Erin is on her game when it comes to fantasies. Seriously, good choices, girl. Good choices. Except for the whole leaving that stuff out when the cops show up. And the fact that the cops had to show up in the first place. Yeah, that kind of sucked.
Melanie’s books make me laugh so hard. I definitely need to reread them soon because my life is kind of miserable right now. But enough about me. Her heroines just get me and my sense of humor. I can’t imagine everyone loving the dry sarcasm and jokes in the form of numbered lists, but it’s legit perfect for me. And that each heroine has a notable quirk, list making, “Very Bad Idea,” etc. makes the scenes with all the girls just…perfection. I don’t know how else to describe it.
I’m going to miss these girls so much.
Now, back to Floored. Charlie was cagey and closed off, but when he lost control he was damn sexy. I feel like enough easy hints were dropped that you weren’t shocked when you found out his secret, but the depth and history behind it did explain a lot of his issues. I hate when you find out the cause of someone’s baggage and it doesn’t really make sense. Like I mentioned in my Too Hot to Handle review yesterday.
And the two of them together were explosive! I need Melanie to write me more stuff and write it now.
Please and thank you, Melanie. 🙂
