Book Review: 'Boyfriend' by Mia Carson
Mia Carson offers little biographical data except that she is ‘a romance author with a love for action, adventure, and the forbidden. Her stories are usually spicy and hot, and sometimes, so wrong!’ The number of books she has penned is staggering – she clearly knows the territory of romance novels that are spiced with lots of erotica. Or as she adds, she may appear ‘your average girl-next-door, but don't be deceived because behind closed doors, Mia is one feisty, daring, and provocative woman.’
So open the door to one of her many books – this one from her Billionaire Romances – and see why she is so popular. For one reason, she creates real, sympathetic characters whose life seems to be challenged until the light breaks through. We meet Iris as she is discovering that the medical bills for her brother’s cancer treatment may disappear as her brother Sam is in remission.
And once her main character is introduced the story can begin – as the summary points out – ‘All muscles and sexy as heck – maybe she needed something harder than a stiff drink. Iris can handle anything. Her world has already collapsed a million times over and couldn’t possibly get worse. She bumps into a mysterious, sexy stranger twice in the same day. But she isn’t looking for a boyfriend. She isn’t looking for anyone to make her moan. Damn, who was she kidding? It has been too long...First time he bumped into her, he owned her. All of her. Alec escapes the city to get as far away as possible from his crazy, cheating ex-fiancée. Life was going to go as he planned – settle into his new home and start over. Except he runs into a sexy woman who seemed more lost than him. Lusting after her body is no way to start life over...’ You catch the drift. Two needy people coming together.
Fine detail, nice psychological overlay, and plenty of steamy erotica make this a little winner for Mia. Grady Harp, January 17
