Product description

Product Description

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 of 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 back woods 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?

I adored this book. Katie Ashley is a must read author for me and I've enjoyed everything I've read of hers but it's never made me laugh. This book had me laughing from start to finish. Filled with great dialogue, slap stick comedy and a wild cast of crazy characters it's a fast, fun, sexy read. Drop Dead Sexy wasn't just about the two main characters - Catcher and Olivia, it was an action packed, wild goose chase with a murder mystery which was very entertaining all the way.
Olivia, a coroner and a mortician is funny as hell. Catcher is a super sexy federal agent who can cook. As the two draw to a close on their case, their chemistry sparks more, their witty banter never ends.
I enjoyed everything about this book, from Olivia with her less-than-stellar love life - ( which you will have to read to believe - talk about bad luck!), Catcher and his inflated ego (as she called it) for my liking more like extreme confidence, Olive and her man-enhancing yarb, and without a doubt Pease - the foul mouthed octogenarian grandmother who I think delivers the line of the book - 'She shook her head before pointing her cane at me. “You might’ve gone through a hell of a long dry spell, but this one is sure worth the wait.”'
I love the chemistry between Olivia and Catcher, while his ego might be just a tad inflated, but he's so into Olivia right from the start that you can't help but to fall for his act. So not only do you get a sizzling romance in this book, we get a side helping of a murder mystery, a nudist colony (er, resort), hillbilly hoodoo with venomous rattle snakes, the Dixie Mafia...... Even with all that happening, you still get a well written RomCom which could easily be made into a fantastic movie. I loved it.

I have been looking forward to reading Drop Dead Sexy for a while now. The synopsis was cute and quirky and made me smile.

Now that I have finished it, I liked it, but I didn't love it.

I absolutely adored the first 30%. I laughed out loud, couldn't get enough of our leading lady Olivia. I loved that she didn't have the run of the mill job, that her relationships had literally been killer. I loved she was pulling up her big girls pants and was putting herself out there again.

Then she met Holden "Catcher" Mains - and for me it just started to lose it's oomph for me.

I adored the sexy GBI Agent Mains, I did. But there was just something about them together that... just didn't do it for me.

Their relationship just didn't really gel with me. It may be just a case of "it's not you book, it's me" with this one.

After the first hook up, it kind of fell away, and I found it hard to keep up the level of interest I had in the book that I had for the first 30%

Maybe it was just that there was so much going on around them that it took away from Olivia and Catcher? There were so many secondary characters coming into the story and becoming part of their story that I became disconnected to them.

Like I said, this really could just be me, and you might absolutely love this to death. I wanted to love it, but just liked it. Which I hated :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Drop Dead Sexy by Katie Ashley is a fun romantic suspense novel that will have the readers sitting ... 16 March 2016

Drop Dead Sexy by Katie Ashley is a fun romantic suspense novel that will have the readers sitting on the edge of their seats while laughing their butts off. It’s a who done it story in a backwoods southern small town. The sexy GBI agent, Catcher Mains and coroner/ mortician, Olivia Sullivan are on the case. Solving the mystery of pharmacist Randall “Randy” Dickinson’s life and murder is going to keep them pretty busy, as well as trying to keep their clothes on and hands off each other. Who said one night stands were only for one night?

Olivia has been down on her luck in the love and sex department. When she finally decides to jump on the horse and take a ride again, she meets the best stud in the stable. She meets Catcher Mains, a man that is drop dead sexy. After a memorable one night stand, Olivia takes the walk of shame back to her small town with memories of a scorching night. When her small town gets their first murder case, she would of never dreamed that GBI agent, Catcher Mains would be assigned to the case. He’s determined to make her part of the investigation. He’s determined to get in her panties again.

The case is full of surprises. Randy had a lot of secrets. He was not your average small town pharmacist that sang in the church choir. His connections lead them to a nudist colony ( oops…I mean nudist resort), a snake charming evangelist, a hoodoo witch, and the dixie mafia. In between the investigation, Catcher and Olivia are doing their own private investigating of each other.

Olivia’s grandmother and mother are picking out the china patterns. Olivia’s losing the cobwebs. Catcher is clearing Olivia’s cobwebs and weaving a web of his own.

I absolutely loved this book. It was fun and full of suspense. Katy nailed the small town Georgia mentality and atmosphere. I live near the area where the story takes place, I can throw a rock out my back door and it would land in Elijay. She nailed it and gave this story an authentic feel.

I highly recommend Drop Dead Sexy by Katie Ashley!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fast-paced, humorous, quirky romantic comedy with a side of mystery, danger, and suspense. 16 March 2016
By K. Bias - Published on

4.5/5 stars
Olivia's life is a little unique. She's a young mortician and coroner. She deals with crazy families on daily basis. Her love life has been a disaster of epic proportions. And she has now decided that her sexual dry spell needs to end. Olivia is capable, smart, pretty, and outspoken, but unaware of her true attractiveness. She tends to feel awkward especially in social situations and with men.

In a bar in the boonies, she meets the sexy, cocky, unfiltered Catcher Mains. He has charisma and a rugged charm, but he also spells trouble. Little did she know how it would affect her life.

All she wanted was a night of really good sex without issues, but she got more than she expected. It was the hottest night of her life and she actually liked Catcher, But one-night-stands don't usually turn into relationships and this girl knows when to stop when she is ahead, so she did the proactive walk of shame and left him in her dust.

But a murder in her neck of the woods, brings in the GBI and Agent Catcher Mains right to her doorstep. Thrown together by the investigation, Olivia can't escape Catcher's company, charm, or advances. But they are about to find more trouble than they bargained for.

Liv and Catcher find themselves on various surprising adventures as they investigate this case, and at times they cannot ignore their chemistry that seems to simmer even in inappropriate settings. They are combustible, have a fun rapport, and have a mutual understanding of each other's jobs and commitments. Liv has been longing to feel sexually satisfied, but also safe and protected. And she brings out the possessive, protective alpha in Catcher. Their banter is flirty, sexy, witty, and sometimes downright dirty.

The situation they find themselves in seems to facilitate the intensity of their chemistry and feelings fairly quickly, but I believed in their connection. Catcher is a take control kind of guy and knows what he wants, and I found that sexy and endearing. He manages to make Liv feel more intelligent and beautiful, despite her tendency to be a bit klutzy or end up in awkward situations. They seemed to bring out the best in each other and accept each other quirks and all.

The side characters added more drama, fun, and some laugh-out-loud moments especially her outspoken Grandmother Pease. Many of the unusual characters surrounding the case added to the mystery and suspense, but also provided some of the surprises too. This story definitely goes in some unexpected directions at times.

This is a fast-paced, humorous, quirky romantic comedy with a side of mystery, danger, and suspense. It is a bit more slapstick at times, but I found myself grinning and laughing at the crazy adventures these two find themselves in. . I might have even yelled "holy crap!" out loud a few times. This was a bit different than other Katie Ashley books, but still had her likable characters and engaging sense of humor even if it was a bit more daring, crass, and tongue-in-cheek. There were some definite twists and surprises, and it was not predictable. I thought it was funny, sweet, sexy, and romantic. I really liked their personalities and loved this couple together. And I liked the whole whodunnit aspect of the plot as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Brilliant Stars!!! 18 March 2016
By Dolphinlover24 - Published on

Drop Dead Sexy has to be one of the funniest, quirkiest yet positively endearing books I have ever read. When I read what this book was going to be about I knew that I wanted to get it as soon as it came out and that it had the potential to be an outstanding read. It exceeded my expectations and then some!!

Olivia Sullivan is a Mortician and the County Coroner in a small town in Georgia. That in itself had me hooked. You can imagine how life growing up in the small town where she lived had to have been for her as the daughter of a Mortician. You know how cruel kids can be. It was especially hard when she came of the age to be able to date boys. When she finds a guy she really likes and they are going to have sex for the first time it ends with a horrific latex allergy resulting in a trip to the hospital. That would be enough to scar anyone but the next time she finds someone she cares enough about to try and have sex again that guy literally died from the experience. This led to a very long absence of trying to have sex. With the help from her delightful yet meddling mother Olivia sets out to rectify the situation and end her sexual ice age from its 6 year freeze. Her inner dialogue as she begins this pursuit had me crying tears because I was laughing so hard. I felt like I was there with Olivia and that she was speaking directly to me as all of this was unfolding. Eventually she winds up in a bar and again the inner dialogue that Olivia has about the place that she finds once again had me crying from laughter. Inside the bar Olivia happens to find the gorgeous Catcher Mains and so begins her pursuit to end her sexual drought.

This book really was so good. There are things that happen and that they come upon during the investigation of a murder that Catcher is assisting with from Olivia's town that go from the bizarre to the ridiculous (although because it is happening to Olivia and Catcher it is all believable), but all make for a thoroughly entertaining read. I have no tears left from my all of my laughter. Along the way we get some smoking sex scenes as Olivia and Catcher fall in love with one another. Catcher is a hot alpha male, did I mention that he is hot because well he is so hot. Olivia would be someone that I would want to hang out with because in addition to her incredible sense of humor, like me she does not like anyone who would hurt children, the elderly or animals. Also even after her two horrific attempts at sex she still takes a leap of faith with Catcher and although her inner dialogue is skeptical at times she never lets her doubt dissuade her from believing that she and Catcher could be a relationship possibility once he shows up in her town and wants to continue to see her beyond just having sex. I loved how that showed her inner strength.

I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who reads romance novels. It has a great mystery plot that involves fantastic quirky delightful characters. The story flowed and I never felt that it slowed in any way. I loved the chemistry between Olivia and Catcher and I found my heart so happy when they found their HEA. You really need to buy this book. You will be so happy that you did.

OMG I am so ashamed that I was so far behind that it took me so long to read this book. I absolutely LOVED this book from the prologue to the end. I laughed during the prologue as well as during the book. I loved the chemistry from the get go with Catcher and Olivia. She had been threw so much that when it happened so quick she thought there is no way where is the curve ball. Catcher knew from the beginning but he knew he had to let her figure it out on her own. If you are like me and still haven't read this, what are you waiting for? It is fantastic!!!

Drop Dead Sexy was a fun book. It had me laughing throughout the story. Olivia life is different from most being a mortician and county coroner isn't something most girls do, and with her past love experiences she is afraid of what can come next. She does a one night stand with a sexy man named Catcher, only he becomes more than a one night stand when he comes to help with the murder that happened in Olivia's small town. Their story will have you laughing and enjoying every minute.
