As the millionaire owner of a chain of computer shops, Simon Traxel isn’t normally hands-on with mundane repairs. But when a fretful brunette shows up with her fried laptop and killer green eyes, he makes an exception. And as it turns out, she needs more hands-on help than Simon imagined.
Brainy soil scientist Cassie Michaels has spent her whole life feeling like a grungy tree trunk beside her delicate flower sisters. To make herself more interesting, Cassie invented stories about her wild sex life—stories she’s expected to retell in vivid detail at a bachelorette party. Cassie’s attempt to catalog her biggest whoppers goes awry when she spills wine on her laptop and lands in Simon’s shop with her sexy list frozen on the screen.
But Simon’s interest is piqued, and the two strike a deal to make Cassie’s make-believe sexploits a reality. From steamy public romps gone hilariously awry, to sexy antics with kitchen utensils, their quest to conquer The List is equal parts scorching hot and adorably awkward.
As they near the end of The List though, Cassie and Simon second guess their pledge to shake hands and say goodbye when they cross off the last item. But will Simon’s big secret make that the one fantasy that can never come true?
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
A girl walks into a computer store…
In goes Cassie with her laptop’s screen frozen on The List. The wild sex stories she’s been telling her sisters are all on display for sexy Simon to see when he is the one to greet her at his store.
When Simon shows up later at Cassie’s with her fixed computer and an offer of helping out with one of the things on her list involving a sexy stranger with a six pack and sex… well, Cassie accepts Simon’s help. One item turns into two, then three and soon Simon and Cassie are spending time together while getting through The List together.
Cassie is a soil scientist, always with dirt under her fingernails and less than appealing work boots. She was a dorky geek, quirky and passionate about her work. I really liked her and her open attitude towards who she was, though this at times clashed with the whole List business. As is, I could relate to wanting to be accepted by her sisters but not losing her real self in the process.
Simon had some issues to overcome. While he was sexy computer geek personified, the fact that his history with women was less than stellar made him a bit cynic about love. This meant that he was so worried about Cassie wanting him for his money (which he had a lot of) and not repeating his past mistakes, that he went overboard in the opposite direction.
Simon and Cassie had crazy hot chemistry. I wished they could have communicated better where it really mattered, but they do get it right eventually.
When there’s a Fucket List involved you know you’re in for a fun and kinky time. The List certainly didn’t lack on sexy times, which went from kinky hot to sweet and steamy and I loved every second of every scene. I had a fantastic time reading it and I’ll be waiting for more from Ms. Fenske.
