From New York Times Bestselling author Tracy Wolff and International Bestselling author Katie Graykowski comes a sexy tale of love, laughter and lingerie …
Lyric Wright is an off-beat astrophysicist whose life is falling apart around her. After losing her fiancé to a hula dancing astrologer and losing her dress to an ill-fated leap of faith, she’s sure there’s nowhere for her life to go but up. At least until she sits down on a trans-Pacific flight next to the one man she never wanted to see again—the boy she’d lost her heart and her virginity too back before she’d learned that friendship and football don’t equal true love.
Broken down quarterback Heath Montgomery is on a plane ride to nowhere. Dodging the phone call he’s certain will end his professional football career for good, he might be Texas bound, but he knows there’s nowhere for him to go but down. But that’s before his childhood best friend and confidante plops back into his life wearing nothing but duct tape and a bad attitude. Determined not to lose her again (especially since he isn’t sure why he lost her the first time) and desperate to outrun his own shadowy future, Heath sets out to take Lyric on the ride of her life. Too bad she only dates men who actually know what her butterfly nebula is … and can find it without the help of a star chart.
Add in one passive-aggressive flight attendant with delusions of couture, a cherry red car with a crush on Neil Diamond, an over-protective sister with a black belt in Krav Maga, two parents determined to marry their spinster daughter off to the hometown hero no matter the cost, and a whole lot of lingerie popping up in all the right places at all the wrong times and you’ve got an unforgettable love story that fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Rachel Gibson won’t want to miss!
OMG!!! I loved this book! I loved the synopsis and knew I had to read it! I mean it was a romance about an astrophysicist and a professional football player! Lyric is an astrophysicist who has recently been dumped by her boyfriend for a hula dancing astrologist. To add insult to injury, she’s recently received a call from home informing her that her father is ill, and she needs to return home. From her arrival at the airport, chaos and many laughs ensue. She finds herself sitting next to her one-time best friend and childhood crush, Heath, whom she has hated since she was rejected by him when she was 17 when he broke her heart into a million pieces. During their 8-hour flight, the ice around her heart begins to thaw. She realizes she misses their easygoing friendship, and he’s been very attentive and sweet to her. After spending that time with him, she has to decide if she can forgive him as she realizes he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon!
Lyric and Lingerie is told from different POVs which I enjoyed. I love knowing what is going on in the character’s mind, even if Lyric and Heath’s are somewhat disturbing but absolutely hilarious! I haven’t enjoyed characters this much in a long time. Lyric is my kind of heroine, yeah she’s beautiful, but she’s kind, has a great sense of humor, and super intelligent. Once you meet her, you won’t soon forget her. Her clumsiness further endeared her to me, and I just loved the random facts she spits out, especially when she is discussing meteors when the plane is experiencing turbulence or giving Heath statistics on STDs. Heath is the quintessential gorgeous football player, but he’s facing never playing again after a horrible accident. Just like Lyric, he has a fantastic sense of humor, and the man knows how to spin a story…you’ll see once you read the book. I couldn’t stop laughing when he’s telling a captive audience in the hospital waiting room of how he and Lyric reconnected. He’s totally lying, but nobody notices. When the two of them were together, I couldn’t stop laughing!
I’ve never read Tracy Wolff before, but I do know this is her first foray into romantic comedy. She and Katie Graykowski knocked this one out of the park! It’s perfect!!!! It’s got the right combination of sweetness, sassiness, humor, and sexiness. The secondary characters were memorable as well. They were as quirky and zany as Lyric and Heath. If you are in the mood for a quick read that will have you laughing your butt off, I HIGHLY recommend you get this one NOW!!!! I’m so excited that Lyric’s sister, Harmony, will soon be getting her own book!
Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.
And for all of those who want the unedited version:
Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.
Tracy Wolff also writes as Tessa Adams
I write romantic comedy with lots of heart. I like scuba diving, Mexican food, chocolate cream cheese frosting, movies where lots of stuff gets blown up, and sparkly things. I have a husband, a daughter, and three K-9 kids. I’d love to hear from you. Shoot me an email at email@example.com
