They have to make a movie of this ! – 5 out of 5 Stars
They have to make a movie of this ! Okay, it wouldn’t be G rated (but who watches those unless forced to in a plane or accompanied by children ?) but it’s got all the elements, a great who-done-it plot, a mysterious villain, attractive (okay, gorgeous) main characters, action, violence, Hot Sex, psychological twists, slightly Kinky Sex, make-you-blush-even-when-reading-it-alone Erotic Descriptions and – best of all – some of the most realistic, funny, colloquial (but never vulgar) dialogue since Elmore Leonard (May He Rest In Peace) left the scene.
Who else could write, “It was just the look I was going for: Pebbles Flintstone on Crack…” ? And the whole book is like that – witty put-downs, snappy come-backs and more unexpected comparisons and plot twists than you could imagine, besides the fact that you get narration from two different viewpoints – from Sydney and also from Jordan, which somehow increases the sexual tension.
The erotic descriptions that get us squirming as we read the story might not be able to be spelled out on screen, but a good film director would be able to get the ideas across without so many words (remember how you knew exactly what was going on in Body Heat and The Big Easy and Don’t Look Now…? ).
What I haven’t been able to decide is: Who could play Sydney ? Has to be smart, hot, and also able to make you laugh without losing her sex appeal (so, no Phyllis Diller or ZsaZsu Pitts types)… In the old days it could have been a young Rosalind Russell or Eve Arden (long before Our Miss Brooks — but they didn’t make movies like this back in the Year of the Black Snow, did they?)
My best candidate might be Sandra Bullock or Katherine Heigl, who did a great Stephanie Plum. But this has got to get to the Big Screen – if there are more novels like this from Shelby Kent-Stewart, it could become a film dynasty to rival the Lethal Weapon series!
Great novel! Bring on some more!
A Dark Sexy “Must Read” – 5 out of 5 Stars
This again was a present for my recent engagement from a friend. I LOVED IT! I am now head-over-heels for this author. This book was dark, steamy and so wonderfully written I could almost feel the characters jump out of the pages. She captured me in a world so complex and pleasurable that I was sad when I had finished it. My only solace now is knowing that she has plenty more books for me to read. I have no doubt that she is one of the best erotic fiction writers in America. I shall now be reading her every work.
Keep them coming Shelby, they are an amazing and fantastical escape into a sensual world.
READ THIS BOOK! You will definitely be missing out if you don’t.
