He’s ready to lead the way

Parker Wilson never thought he’d go from battle-hardened soldier to romance expert, but after his stint in the Rangers, that’s exactly what happened. As the owner of DreamMakers Inc., he helps other men win in the love department, using every resource available to plan the perfect date. When a routine recon turns into an unexpected night of passion, Parker’s mission becomes more personal—and he won’t give up until Lynn Davidson is all his.

She’s more than willing to follow

Lynn is a goner from the moment she lays eyes on the delectable Parker. She’s just ditched her boring almost-boyfriend and is tired of sticking to the straight and narrow. It’s time to walk on the wild side, and what better way than in the arms of the most irresistible man she’s ever met? But when their red-hot affair is threatened, it’ll take a team effort to make their dreams come true.

My thoughts:

Yum yum yum yummy yum yum yum….  Ok that sums up my thoughts of Parker but I know you want to know more.

Parker is a man who is used to playing the field and getting what he wants from women with no strings attached.  His buddies Dean and Jack feel the same way so it is no surprise that occasionally they have played with the same woman in a most enjoyable way for all parties involved.  He’s surprised by his new career as a master date planner but finds that the skills that served him well in the military prove to be invaluable in creating the perfect experience for those who are willing to pay.  When the company is asked by a man none of them feel particularly fond of to plan the perfect date for he figures poor woman but hey I’ll do the job.  Once he meets the target all bets are off as the woman makes him not only extremely horny but draws him in to want to know more about her.  His first evening with her was immmmmm just a bit steamy (I’m sooooooo understating this as he and Dean make it one for her to remember) but after this one amazingly hot encounter he puts the MINE signs up in order to go after her.  He’s got a secret though and even as much as he does to show her what she means to him the secret is a DOOZY!!!  I mean we know it as the reader but to her…. massive betrayal.

Lynn was fun to read.  Sure she’s usually a everything has its proper place, time and let’s just stay on the normal safe path but when she meets Parker…  All bets are off!!  Her friend will make you laugh with her antics but Lynn really does spread her wings in this story and emerges as someone who I think would be someone I’d love to know in real life.  While she does play the wimp card in some respects when it comes to her initial boyfriend I think the way she handles herself when push comes to shove showed the strong woman who until then always put herself second/third/….  I liked her byplay with Parker and the heat they generated while together was definitely fan-worthy.  She’s a great friend to her unconventional bestie who really will make you crack up especially with Dean.

Overall this was a nice start to the series and I look forward to seeing the other men find their matches.  I think we have a hint of a pairing but we shall see if that plays out.  The vignettes with the other men really helped move the story along and provided a nice breaking point at times in the overall storyline.  The men are both hot and willing to please so you know their stories are going to be AMAZING!!

Special thanks to Vivian Arend for granting me access to this with no expectation of a positive review.  *MUAH*  I loved this story and definitely look forward to more!!
