***excessive swearing and sexual conversation***
I listened to the other books of the series. The narrator, Hollis McCarthy, does not fit this novel. Characters from the previous novels appear in this as well. The voice changes for these characters, whom we came to enjoy, was disconcerting and detracts from the feel of them. I deducted one star for that.
This story is too long with the lack of action. There is considerable time with Candy and Luke playing the pedantic male and female roles. Candy wants sex but no commitment and Luke was commitment and sex. Candy and Luke are more kinky (kinky for a pg13 movie rating) than the other characters. This novel center around Shoshanna Lehump who wrote the graphic sex novels Size Matters. Much of the story includes sex, sexual toys, sexual conversation, characters wearing sex cloths, sizes of men penis instead of substance. The laughs are not as frequent and there are many double entendre.
The similarity of the story lines always includes law enforcement officers; How Hard Can It Be characters is a quirky female with a FBI officer; Size Matters is an undercover cop with a woman with trust issues; Cop a Feel male and female characters are deep undercover assassins, with the woman with trust issues. In each novel the women have a scene where they put an extra wiggle in their walk to the discomfort of the male character.
Maybe I should have not read these right after another. By the time I got to this book, which has fewer laughs, I was jaded about the similarities in the books. That feeling did effect cause a reduction in one star.
Candy choose this career to revenge, her sister’s death. She loves her job and now questions if that is enough for her. Luke has decided for her love, he is willing t
o get out. Candy and Luke give Shoshanna a lot of fodder for her books.
With characters from Size Matters and our new crew, they pack up to attend the screw con conference. It was a long car ride inside Candy’s mind, Luke’s fantasying about Candy and Shoshanna’s the sexual conversation. Oh, the name of the song Candy refers to is, Killing Me Softly by Roberta Flack.

It may have been that I didn’t like the performance and how she would put the emphasis on the wrong word in the sentence and she didn’t have the fun upbeat voice to go with the way the author writes, but this one seemed to drag for me. Took a lot longer than expected to finish. The narrator is okay, the author is great but I wasn’t in love with this one like I was the first two.
