[Review]: "Double Take"

Double Take by Leslie Kelly
Publisher: Harlequin (April 15, 2014)
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Getting under her skin… 

When her research about orgasms goes viral, sex therapist Lindsey Smith needs a place to lie low. Substitute teaching on Wild Boar Island, Michigan, promises not only privacy, but an opportunity to not think about sex. Which, thanks to the town's too-tasty police chief, lasts exactly one second. 

After the dangerous streets of Chicago, Mike Santori figured the island was a safe, sane place to settle down. Getting hot for the new teacher wasn't in the plan. Especially when he discovers that Lindsey is more than she claims to be. Mike decides to use every sexy trick in the book to strip Lindsey of her defenses and reveal all of her secrets. It's a wickedly sensuous journey, one that pushes both of them beyond their limits…to the heart of their desires.

My Review:

As any reader knows, the hardest books to review or rate are the ones that are simply okay. Nothing bad sticks out about the story, but there's also nothing huge that stays with me after finishing it, either.

All I can say is Double Take was enjoyable while it lasted, but it did not leave me jumping up and down with excitement. It was simply another romance – lovely at times, witty at others, but lacking some development. The jump from sexy times to love was a bit rushed, as with many category romances.

I liked Double Take and it was a very easy and quick read, but I can't see it making my list of favorites any time soon.

For a fun, sexy read, Double Take may be just the sort of story that will appeal to many readers. Even though it didn't wow me, I am still glad I requested it. I'm mildly curious about the rest of Mike's family, so when I need another quick escape, I may just pick up one of Leslie Kelly's previous books.

3 1/2 STARS!
