Phillips is EASILY my favorite sexy times author. Her characters always have such heart, and interesting back stories. I pick one of these suckers up and can't put them down, and that alone is worth 4 stars in my book.I found myself disappointed this time around, though, because one of the best things about Phillips is her ability to combine hilarious laugh out loud moments with heart. Seriously, she is pretty much the best at that I have ever seen. This book lacked the funny, though. I laughed a couple of times, but nothing major. I'm seeing this trend in romance lately... more chick lit, less fanciful, funny stuff. I hope it goes back the other way, frankly.Anyway, that makes two in a row that aren't my faves of her. Can we please go back to the humor of Natural Born Charmer and beaver girl?
