Review: Heavy Issues by Elle Aycart

Series: Bowen 2
Format: Digital (from Elle)
Release Date: May 29, 2012
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble 

Steering clear of relationships has never been difficult for demolitions expert Cole Bowen, but now, with his brother's engagement sending the female population into full-blown hysterics and the town of Alden's month-long festivities helping along, he finds himself in hell. When he discovers Alden's new resident and the object of all his wet dreams, Christine Sheridan, has sworn off relationships and is going to hire a gigolo to get professionally laid, he decides to kill two birds with one stone.

Christy is so not drinking again. Thanks to José Cuervo she has her friends signing her up for stud conventions and Cole frigging Bowen offering sex in exchange of fake dates, which is so out of the question it isn't even funny. She knows the domineering man will push her boundaries, and after battling all her life with self-esteem issues, she isn't ready for that. Too bad he won't take no for an answer.

Cole is determined to strip away all of her defenses but refuses to lower his ever-present walls, so when Christy realizes she wants more, she's left with only two options; walk away or crack his shield and risk her heart in the process.

Like its predecessor More than Meets the Ink, HEAVY ISSUES by Elle Aycart will set your panties on fire! No wonder the women of Alden are going gaga over the Bowen brothers! Not only are these men tall, dark, Catholic ex-Marines, they are very skilled in bed to boot! The story is, Christy Sheridan is on the rebound, calling off her engagement after she caught her ex-fiance in a very compromising position with her neighbor. She then swears off relationships and in a drunken haze, vows to hire a stud to satisfy her sexual needs. Enter Cole Bowen, this brother has commitment issues and is the perfect candidate to Christy's endeavor. What started as a mutually satisfying arrangement turned into a very sexy love story that is sure to give you butterflies! 
I'll get you properly laid, in exchange you'll pretend to be going out with me.
HEAVY ISSUES is your usual boy-meets-girl story with an awkward start spiked with tightly coiled sexual tension. Cole Bowen, like his brother James, is swoon worthy. Cole is every girl's dream, very attentive and appreciative of Christy's assests plus he's wrapped in a very pretty package begging to be laid bare. The things he says will make any woman's heart melt and their knickers very wet. He has a way of saying things in a very straightforward manner while managing  to make it sound sexy and inviting. And as an added bonus Cole's a kinky bastard too!

Rocking Cole's crotch and the naughty librarian look is Christy Sheridan. She sounded fun at first but later on she started getting on my nerves. The woman has serious image issues and her relationship with food was annoying. Now I understand why some men find ladies who are overly conscious about their looks, weight and diet a turn-off. Christy sure bored me with her incessant whining about how fat she used to be, how fat she still feels, her stretch marks, treating sugar and carbs like its the devil and other food pre-requisites. The man is so turned-on by you, girl, go with the flow and stop obsessing over your weight issues! I'd kill for a guy who likes to grab on to my curves and calls them soft instead of lumpy. Psh!
You are my woman. You belong tome. No one else f*cks you. No one else touches you. No one else f*cking swipes beer from your chin. Get me?
For readers who love fun, contemporary, sexy tales, HEAVY ISSUES is a recommended read for you. Cole and Sheridan will have you fanning yourselves with their scorching hot encounters and Cole Bowen will surely steal your hearts.
