Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

I have recently become a fan of Jill Shalvis' humorous and sexy contemporary romances and was glad to get a copy of Animal Magnetism. Here is the product description:
Co-owner of the town's only kennel, Lilah Young has lived in Sunshine, Idaho, all her life. Pilot-for-hire Brady Miller is just passing through. But he soon has Lilah abandoning her instincts and giving in to a primal desire.

It's Brady's nature to resist being tied down, but there's something about Lilah and her menagerie that keeps him coming back for more.
Here is the beginning couple of sentences:
Brady Miller's ideal Saturday was pretty simple--sleep in, be woken by a hot, naked woman for sex, followed by a breakfast that he didn't have to cook.

On this particularly early June Saturday, he consoled himself with one out of the three, stopping at 7-Eleven for coffee, two egg and sausage breakfast wraps, and a Snickers bar.
Friday 56:
He lay quietly on the rug while she showered--cherry blossom soap today--and yelped along with her as the hot water gave way to cold.
Doesn't that beginning just give you a great taste of Grady? I can't wait to read more of this one.
