I got this book from NetGalley as an ARC by Carina Press 

Fiona caught her fiance with her sister in her bed, she was devastated. Now, its 1 year after the incident and Fiona is invited to their engagement party. 
Her mother is very pushy and always berates Fiona for not being as perfect as her sister. 

Michael is Fiona's best friend and occasional lover. He is a hot photographer and a ladies man. So after having been crushed by her fiance she doesn't want to risk her heart again. 

Now for the party she plans on taking Michael as her boyfriend, just so she doesn't get any pity stares from everyone and to show she has done well. But to get him to go she plans on giving him his favorite bottle. Michael has other plans. He agrees on condition that she spends the weekend with him catching up where they left off. Since secretly Michael has eyes only for Fiona. 

Sexual tension is at it's peak and they spend a very nice weekend together. 
And of course the bitch Lizzy gets what she deserves at her party!!! 

I totally enjoyed this book although it was kinda expected and reminded me of a movie I saw before which I totally loved and is one of my favorite movies of all time - The Wedding Date

The writing style was nice and the build up was great. Recommended as a light romantic read.

Male Call by Denise A. Agnew

Male Call (Hot Zone #1) by Denise A. Agnew

Series: Hot Zone #1

Date Published: 2007

My Rating: 5 stars

74 pages

I got this book for free from Amazon for my Kindle and I downloaded it to my IPad through the Kindle application.

This is the first book in the Hot Zone series.
I guess I was lucky to catch this book for free from Amazon. It was the first time for me to try out this author and I totally enjoyed the experience.

Sean O’Callahan has been called to Iraq, before he left he asked his collegue the computer software engineer Eve Carmichael to write him while abroad. So as a friend she accepted.

First the letters were just asking about how everything was, how work was and just the normal stuff. Then the letters from Sean started to take a new angle and he started writing about his fantasies and dreams which included her. At first  Eve was a bit shocked that the geek at work would write stuff like that. But when she saw a photo of him with his shirt removed, she was in for the shock of her life. She never imagined he would be this hot.

Now it was her turn to start fantasizing about him and wishing for his return.
But when he returns, will they still want to be with each other or was that just a desperate act?!

Very touching and romantic short story that I totally enjoyed.
