Welcome to my review for 
DROP DEAD SEXY by Katie Ashley

Title: Drop Dead Sexy
Author: Katie Ashley
Genre: Humor, Contemporary Romance
Date Published: March 15th, 2016

For Olivia Sullivan, love is more a four letter curse word than a sentiment. Growing up as the daughter of a small town mortician, guys didn’t warm to the fact there were dead people in her house. At thirty, taking over the family business and becoming the town Coroner helped to cement her undateable status. Of course her past sex history didn’t help matters either.

Attempt number one with her first love ended barely before it got started with a horrific latex allergy hospitalization. Attempt number two had him coming and then going with an undiagnosed heart condition. For the past three years, Olivia has closed up shop for fear of what might happen next in the bedroom.

After being forced to go single to her mother’s lingerie shower, Olivia stumbles into an out of town bar with one intention: find an able bodied stud to go home with to end her losing sex streak. Enter Holden Caulfield Mains aka Catcher, who earned his nickname not just from the book he was named for, but for the fact he was sure to catch the attention any woman who came within a five mile radius. Waking up after a night of the most mind blowing sex she could have ever imagined, a horrified Olivia runs away thinking she’s left Catcher behind.

When Olivia’s small town is wracked by its first murder, she never could have imagined her one night stand would reappear in the form of the GBI’s lead investigator. To her mortification, Catcher isn’t ready to let go of their sizzling chemistry, and he doesn’t understand the meaning of no. As things start to heat up between them, the body count starts to rise, and they’re led on a wild goose chase from backwoods mountain Nudist Colonies to altercations with the Dixie Mafia. Can Olivia and Catcher survive to solve the murder while also not succumbing to their explosive passion?

Drop Dead Sexy is the new book by Katie Ashley and it was released yesterday! First, thanks to Katie and The Next Step PR for this amazing opportunity.

So. This book is a hilarious, romantic, and drop dead sexy story, and well, so much more!! It’s not my first read by Katie, I’ve already read a few of her books, so she’s not a new author for me. That was one of the reason I really wanted to read this one.

Olivia Sullivan has a work I don’t envy, at all —seriously, work with dead people? I’m not against death but I would rather like it not surrounding me. Olivia, our main character, is a morticianthe family business. So since she was a kid she does know how to run a funeral. At having that kind of work is a little —much— hard to find a man. So her love/sex life is… not the best. But when after a long of you-know-what, she —finally!— decides to go out and find someone for a one-night stand. How does that result? Bad. Just kidding, she gets what she’s looking for, but… the problem is that she gets a lot more —in a pretty good way.

When Olivia meets Holden Caulfield Mains AKA Catcher —let me stop here, please. First time I understand this kind of reference! As a fact, Catcher in the Rye is one of my readings for my English and Spanish Contemporary Literature class and I’ve just present J.D. Salinger’s life and works in my class, so I’m happy to get the reference. Anyway, she meets Catcher, a sexy, sexy man, who has a filthy-dirty mouth. And for who a one night thing —and many orgasms— it’s not enough! —such a man. So he makes his way to one of Olivia’s cases. And now their paths join together. Not all is sex —or was it? However, all the mystery in the investigation gives to this book an amazing plus to the main plot.

What more can I say? This is a really sexy romance story, so if you’re looking for a good read, try this one. It has many funny moments which were my favorites, along with others. But in general, I enjoyed Katie's book.

P.S. It has many scenes for +18, but if you’re younger and don’t care for that, give it a chance ;)

P.S.2. Their first meeting, omg! I love Catcher.

Book: +4.5 Drop dead sexy stars
