First Star I See Tonight by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

I feel like a big old idiot. I almost didn’t read this book, then I decided I would give it a go and then dnf it. Yep idiot. The reason? I thought it would just be one of those sugary sweet romance books that follow every trope known to man. The truth? This book is full of sarcasm and some lovey-dovey stuff at times…. but I loved each and every second.

It starts with private detective Piper being under-cover with her many disguises. (She really isn’t very good at them) and she gets busted when she is caught following former star quarter back Graham Cooper.
She doesn’t tell him she is following him. She explains that she is off her meds and is stalking him. But that she is harmless.

“I assure you. I’m only a bit of a nutter,” she said breathlessly. “Absolutely harmless. You don’t have to worry about violence.”
“Only that I have a stalker.”
“I don’t want to see you anywhere near me again. Got it?”
“I’m afraid that will be impossible.” She paused. “Until my new medication kicks in.”

She won’t tell him who hired her to follow him and ends up ticking him off. She twists it and ends up getting hired by him to take a look at the security and staff at his new night club.

Piper is a force to be reckoned with though and she gives no crap about who she ticks off with her quest for saving her dead father’s struggling PI business. If it means kicking a big wig star quarterback’s butt..then so be it.

This is a smexy times book and it’s not the usual porny times that I usually go for but dang if I didn’t get the lady boner going for both these characters. (My lady boners usually go something like this)

These two characters have several adventures during this book and every single page made me like both of them more and more. There is even a realistic twist to their ‘first time’ that I don’t think I’ve ever seen in a romance book.
I don’t even know who I am right now because I’m usually more of this type of girl.

And then body bags being brought into play.

I liked this sucker so much that I need to hunt down some of the other books in this series. (PS>this book is completely fine as a stand-alone…even though you are gonna want more.)

The only bad thing about this book is that cover sets the reader up for expecting something that this book is not and this little book deserves better.

Booksource: I received a copy from the publisher on this one. I liked the book anyways.
