Studs for Hire: Woman in Charge by Sherry James--Book Review

Sexy fun for every romance lover is what you'll find within the pages of Sherry James' second book in her Studs for Hire series, Woman in Charge.

The women of Studs for Hire return in a mind-blowing way. Casey Burrows has never had luck with men. A past filled with disappointment and rejection, she's still looking for a guy who will love her and stick around.

Alex Roy was on top of the world until a partnership left him deep in debt and his heart destroyed. When Casey approaches him to work for a wealthy widow and help her redesign her mansion into a shrine fit for the King of Rock 'n' Roll, both Alex and Casey decide to keep their relationship strictly business. But they soon discover that immortalizing Elvis means they can't stop falling in love.

After the amazing debut of this series with Woman on Top, I had high hopes for the sequel.

I wasn't disappointed.

All the things that I loved about the first novel are back: the humor, the sensuality, and the studs. Once again, Sherry James shows her ability to fully develop her characters, toss in tons of conflict, and come up with a masterpiece. Basing this story around a wealthy widow's fixation with the King is ingenious. It makes for some great scenes. And James did her research--bringing Graceland to life for her readers and allowing them to feel like they were right alongside Casey and Alex as they toured Elvis's home.

The attractive cover art is back, with a new stud making you want to pick up a dozen copies and plaster them all over your walls. And kudos to the cover artist for picking up the lovely green of Casey's eyes. It makes for a stunning photo.

My one and only nitpick is that I found two misprints on the back cover. There are a few inside as well, like when Casey and Alex opt for Chinese take out and end up with "Mongolian Beef and Sweet n' Sour" (I assume chicken because there's nothing there).

Deliciously funny, erotic, and sexy, Woman in Charge will certainly kick your engine into gear. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
