JINXED gets five hearts!
From the Romance Studio!
Erecting brick walls around her heart is Frannie Sullivan’s way of coping with the pain from her past. When she finds the attention of an attractive stranger focused on her, she’s willing to have a sexual relationship but refuses to get emotionally involved. Jinx has dealt with his own pain in the past and knows what a luxury time can be. He is unwilling to waste a second with Frannie, even if his insistence that he loves her makes him seem crazy. Using their physical attraction, Jinx hopes to break down Frannie’s walls and get her to acknowledge she loves him too.
Misunderstandings and odd coincidences open this story, but it’s the personality of the characters that really draw the reader in. Both Jinx and Frannie are strong characters, with his wacky behavior balancing out her pragmatism. His unwavering belief that he and Frannie belong together endears him to the readers while it wears down Frannie’s resistance. And what draws readers to Frannie most is the way she blossoms through her relationship with Jinx.
The sexual relationship between Jinx and Frannie is a large portion of the story, especially since that’s all Frannie thinks she wants in the beginning. Every sex scene between the two of them is passionate and intense because it is packed full of the emotion Frannie tries so desperately to deny. Only in bed does Frannie let her defenses down and accept the love and tenderness Jinx offers.
Inez Kelley has written a wonderfully touching story about two people who help each other heal from the wounds in their past with humor and love. There was nothing about this story or the characters that disappointed me. I was equally moved and amused by Jinx and Frannie and their willingness to fight for what they want. The ending is completely satisfying and left me with a warm heart and a smile on my face.

This is so cool to me. I did not get an email alert when this review appeared (at least not yet) but another author, Sharon Horton also has an ebook titled JINXED and she emailed to congratulate me. Now, since *MY* JINXED starts with a name mix up, This was just too perfect not to mention!
So from one JINXED cat to another, thanks Sharon!
