DIMPLE OF DOOM
Book #1 of the Samantha Lytton series
Rating: 4 Cups
Samantha Lytton is a cute, fun, chatty secretary for Steak on a Stick Industries. She has had a thing for the mega hot accountant Sam. In no time she is swept up into a surreal adventure with him, that involves shoot outs, art theft, shopping and of course steamy love making. She knows he is a liar but she cannot help but join in the adventure where she is a Bonnie to his Clyde.
Sam/Nate is a professional art thief. Originally he flirted with Samantha to gain access to her boss’'s vault, but once her life was in danger he realizes he has genuine feelings for her. Now he must change the rules of the game if he is to keep her alive. Yes, she can be a pain in the neck, and she can get into trouble in the blink of an eye, but she is funny, sweet and sexy, and he likes having her around.
As far as Samantha is concerned, dimples should be illegal. They cause a girl to do all sorts of silly things. From the get-go Sam has had a cute as sin smile with a dimple to boot. There really is no way she can say no to him when he flashes the dimple. Because of him she is on the run from her ex-boss and numerous gunmen, her face is splashed all over the news, and she is not sure if she will be able to return to a normal life. But then again, she cannot say no to the smoking hot body and the fireworks in bed. If they can catch her boss, and if she survives, does she really want to return to her mediocre life without Sam/Nate in it?
This is a cute read. I laughed out loud numerous times. Samantha is witty and hilarious. I loved the commentary and imagery in her mind. I enjoyed her obsession with food, as well. The comparison between her feelings for Sam and her love for fried chicken is very unique and amusing. The comedic timing and plot are done well. Personally, I was somewhat less than ecstatic after reading the ending but I can hope the hint of future stories to come will wrap up some dangling loose ends. Overall it is a fun, quick and humorous read.
