Book Review: Stiff Suit by Tawna Fenske
Book Blurb: James "Iceman" Bracelyn is wound tighter than a vintage Rolex. Besides his CEO role at Ponderosa Resort, he's guardian of the family's biggest secrets, including a doozy that keeps him up at night. Alone. In that big bed he'd rather not share, thank you very much.
That's fine with Lily Archer, who likes her flings flaming hot and fleeting. Her man-eater rep might be slightly exaggerated, but she'll gladly dial it up to rescue James from himself—and a bottle of Glenlivit—at his brother's wedding.
Intimacy's the last thing either one wants, but it's tough to dodge when they're drawn together by the world's drooliest dog, a TPing escapade gone wrong, and a good old-fashioned desktop hookup. That's problematic for James, whose ability to hide the family's riskiest secret is complicated by the secret's refusal to get the hell out of his guest room.
Can Iceman keep his frigid shell intact while falling for the hottest science geek sex goddess he's ever met, or will the ticking time bomb blow it all to smithereens?

Review: You guyssss. I have read every single book of this series. And every time I go: Damn, that's the best book of the series yet! But, nope! The bar gets getting raised and every book is better than the last. I think James has got to be one of my favorite male character in a romantic comedy I've read in a while. I don't know, I guess because he's so self-contained and yet so vulnerable. I think we can all identify with that a little bit. And who doesn't love a feisty, smart-mouthed redhead. I mean, you know sparks were going to fly. And fly they did. I suspect that I identify more with James in this story than with Lily. I think Lily is the friend we all have that's not afraid of much. We secretly want to be more like Lily.
When you read a romantic comedy, you're expecting a literary candy bar. Gooey,yummy, chocolatey goodness. And if you're like me, absolutely zero guilt comes with it. And Stiff Suit is all that. But wait, there's more! There's heart and there are some twists too (spoilers!), which is not something you're used to when you're reading this genre. I think it fits. I think it's perfect.
Ms. Fenske keeps batting it out of the park with this series and the more I know of the Bracelyns, the more I want of them! Definitely another winner!
