Want to get your man talking? Give him booty!

Desperate times call for desperate measures. And Shay LaCosta is pretty desperate. She's wrecked her blissful marriage of five years by demanding she and her husband Dylan have a baby. What the hell was she thinking? She knows she was wrong and she’s ready to set things right, if only Dylan will let her. Bet he can’t shun her Booty Camp offer: delicious, white-hot sex in exchange for what’s going on inside his brain.

Dylan may be macho and stubborn, but he really does miss his wife. A little of Shay's pushing gets him past their estrangement and into her web of seduction. She seems to have an erotic week mapped out to perfection, and who is he to complain? Their marriage is meant to be, so they'll fight with each other, and they'll fight for each other.
What drew me to reading this book was the fact that the hero and heroine were already married. Very seldom do I come across romance novels with that angle.

Both Dylan and Shay are very likeable characters who've hit a rough patch in their marriage. But from the very beginning you can tell they obviously love one another, which makes you root for them to work it out. The trouble between them began when the issue of having children came up. Always a tricky sublect for any couple.

Sex seems to be their answer to finding their way back to what once was. Not that they used sex to mask their problems, but used it as a way to get Dylan to open up and express his feelings on the subject of children. I guess sex is a way to get a man to talk.

In the end, of course they work it out and hopefully are stronger for it. They were two characters I would have loved to see more of because they were so great together in and out of the bed.

I came from Cym Lowell's Book Review Party Wednesday (BRPW)

Your review sounded positive, so what made it a "3 butterflies" instead of 5?
