|He's So Shy (Bad Boys, #1).pdf|
Gillian Foxe has set her sights on Lennon Wright, but unfortunately for him, it's not in a hot, sexy way. After overhearing two women gossiping about him, Gillian decides to help him out by turning the cute introvert into a social butterfly, even if it's against his wishes. She's convinced she knows what's best for the shy man, but of course he doesn't see it that way. Everything isn't always what it seems, and no one knows that better than Lennon. Yes he keeps to himself, but it's not for the reason Gillian thinks. Still, he can't help but be amused Gillian thinks he's shy. He may not be as outgoing as the sexy woman is, but that doesn't mean he's dating deficient. In fact, he's had his eye on a special woman for a while now. Unfortunately Gillian lacks the ability to see beneath his good guy persona. But if a bad boy is what she likes, Lennon has a few naughty skills up his sleeve that might help take the blinders off and prove to Gillian he's not so shy after all. Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, menage (m/f/m), voyeurism.
He's So Shy (Bad Boys, #1) Reviews
I am a huge fan of Lena Matthews! And that is all I am going to say about that!
I so enjoyed this book that I read it in one day - mostly at work. Shhh!
I didn't care for the names of the heroine or hero - Gillian because I couldn't figure out if her name should be pronounced Jilly-ann or Gilly-ann. I stuck with Jilly-ann and pressed on. Lennon because although different - it isn't a name I would place in the grown and sexy category of names. Anywho...
I've typically stayed away from interracial romances because it's 2012 and let's be real - it's not that big of a taboo so when most authors go on about how "wrong" it is for the couple to be together, it just irks me. However, Lena Matthews pulled this off wonderfully. Primarily by having the heroine share feelings that I identified with. Although Gillian found men outside of her race attractive, she couldn't see them as serious prospectives for a relationship and her reasons...well, she didn't really have any reasons. Works for me. I loved Gillian's best friend, Minta! She was very well-written and her character was sassy and funny and definitely someone I could see myself being best friends with.
Lennon. Mmmm...Mmmmm...Mmmmm. WHERE ARE MEN LIKE THIS AT?! SERIOUSLY!!! Do they really only exist between the pages of fiction?! Uuuuggh! He was everything I want in a man: uber-sexy (I imagined him as a Gabriel Aubry in way of looks), dominating, possessive, and sexually aggressive! And his dirty talk....LE SWOOOON!!! The sex scenes were sooo hot!!! *fanning self wildly I smiled and squirmed my way through the entire book!
I hope there author chooses to make this a series because I would love to read more about Lennon's friends and even Minta!
Gillian and Lennon are co-workers. She mistakes him for being shy and decides to make him her project. He plays along. This is a good dirty book! I love the character, both the hero and heroine are well thought out with their motivations clearly made at the beginning of the story. Gillian likes the 'white guy' but won't admit it, so she takes him out for drinks and finds out that he's not shy at all. I admit my favorite character is her friend, she could by my wing-women any time. The big reveal in this book involves a party at a friends house, No I would NEVER participate in that kind of party. But the freak in me enjoyed reading about it. I also loved that the shero of this book was not afraid to find her love; I'm over women who run away from a good man. i would love to read more from this series.
There were a few errors:
Location 343 "And blind as a bat is she thought he could possible find any.....---> should be "possibly"
Location 1226 Favorite line "a fast convert to the religion of assianity"
Location 1273 "Every since their little office escapade..." --> "Ever since"
The error at location 1373 is too adult to quote, but the wrong word is used, should be "fingering"
And here I thought this book as just going to be all sex and no plot. Glad I was wrong :)
