is about to begin house-sitting when he spies the widow of an
old friend in her apartment, holding a pill bottle. Frantic
because her husband killed himself with pills, Pete wracks his
brain for a way to distract her. The only way he can think of
is to go out on the balcony and strip for her.
Wilson’s life has been reduced to watching other people
through binoculars. To her shock, one night she gets quite a
show from her old friend Pete. After Pete’s striptease, they
begin a game of one-upmanship. Will Misty get a life and
become the bad girl of Pete’s dreams, or will they end up
taking it slow?
it Slow was a hot, fun read. I liked the voyeurism
involved in the story—it was just enough to be sexy without
being over the top. Pete was a great hero. He was sexy,
sweet, caring, and adorably flustered at times. Misty has
been hiding from life for years, but she has good reason.
Watching her step back into life was entertaining, especially
when she consulted Pete’s younger brother for advice. If
you’re in the mood for a cute, hot, quick read with a touch of
voyeurism, pick up Taking it Slow.
