REVIEW: Ask Me Nicely by Amy Andrews


*Complimentary copy received from publisher*

A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint... She craves what only he can give her. But he's not giving in without a fight... Veterinarian Sal Kennedy's lost her mojo and is desperate to get it back. In fact, as the anniversary of the tragedy that destroyed her life looms large, she'll do anything to erase the painful memories, including overdoing the tequila and making a pass at the most annoyingly inappropriate man on the planet. Fellow veterinarian Doyle Jackson is her flatmate and her employee and therefore strictly off-limits. Unfortunately, Doyle knows how to bring the goods and make her mojo sit up and beg. Doyle is only too happy to oblige Sal in her hour of need, but then she demands more, and she's perfectly happy playing dirty to get it. He wants more, too—more than just sex, that is, and it's something Sal's not willing to give. But Doyle is in this for the long haul now, and he's prepared to fight even dirtier to get what he wants. Even if that means they both keep losing all their clothes in the process…

I’m not quite sure how I feel about this…

Let me just put it out there that seeing this is an Entangled Brazen, you’ll get the heat, for sure!

As for the rest, please just take this for what it is, personal take…

Despite Sal’s history, she didn’t quite win me over. She’s a well-formed character yet I forgot sometimes why I should care for her. I wasn’t annoyed with her, but I found her a little too hard around the edges, so she just came off grating at certain points.

Doyle was a definite highlight for me. I thought he was quite delightful. There is an ease to him that I like. I get his thought process, and I certainly can’t complain about his hotness! C’mon, for starter, he’s a vet so he’s good with animals, hello!  I also love how he handled Sal. And how he saw Sal definitely helped soften her up in my head.

And for me, that last part how Sal moved their relationship forward helped in taking away some of her hard edges. So in the end, this ended up being in the middle road for me. This is a first Amy Andrews read for me, and as it stands, there may or may not be any more. Not quite sure yet…
