Rina Goldberg is a master musician. But
she’s not so masterful in the self-image department. Years of
being told that she was heavy have taken their toll. She will
only make love with the lights out, and refused to believe
anyone who says she’s beautiful.
Rina’s life is busy. She is auditioning
to be the principal clarinet with the Vancouver Symphony
Orchestra, and her boyfriend, Al, has proposed. Rina knows
Al’s not the one, and she consults her friends, the Awesome
Foursome, Jenny, Ann, and Suzanne, on how to handle the
situation. After they figure out the best way to let Al down,
Rina does something totally different for her. She looks up
her former lover, Giancarlo Mancini, on the Internet.
She finds out Giancarlo is in Vancouver
on business, and they arrange to meet. But Giancarlo is not
the geeky, homely boy Rina remembers. He’s now the director of
music videos, and he’s one hot stud muffin.
Giancarlo, a true Italian, knows that
Rina’s body is perfect, and he intends to show her just that.
They begin a hot, steamy affair that makes them both realize
they love each other. But Giancarlo has to help Rina overcome
her self-image issues to convince her they belong together.
You’ll need three things when you read
this book: a box of tissues, a fan and uninterrupted time. Ms.
Lyons’s latest book had me overheating one minute, and then
crying the next. Giancarlo is one of the sexiest leading men
to come around in a long time.
She’s On Top is a fantastic
blend of emotions and hot, imaginative sex. It is a stupendous
end to the Awesome Foursome series, and makes me wish Susan
Lyons had named the series the Stupendous Six, or the Elegant
Eight so there could be more books to read. I’m going to miss
the Foursome and their journeys to find the men in their
If you haven’t read this series you’re
missing out on a incredible read. Run, don’t walk, to the
nearest bookstore and pick up She’s On Top. It
is a definite Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Read for me, and I
know you’ll love it, too.
