His Private Pleasure was an awesomely good read from beginning to end without a single misstep. One of the best examples of a series romance that I have read in years. Liza and Dylan are both comfortable in their own skin and understand that although they are both highly successful in their chosen profession it was time to make a change in their lives if they wanted to survive. Liza was at the top of her game as a Hollywood PR Agent when she decided to close shop after a failed relationship made her take a hard look at her life and realized if she wanted a committed relationship like her best friend she needed to leave her old life behind and work on finding herself. Dylan was on the fast track to becoming the youngest Captain of the Las Vegas Police Department when he decided to give it up and go home to Canyon Springs New Mexico. He knew his skills would be put to good use as Sheriff and his need for protecting the town he loved would be more fulfilling than putting away Vegas scum in the morning and watching them walk in the afternoon.
It was a romance readers dream to experience these two smart, witty and singular individuals become a couple. There were no dumb misunderstandings or one sided POV's. They both had fears and secret desires that they were able to work through by slowly learning to trust each other and of course the sex was an added bonus. What made this a 5 star read for me was not the Hot sex which was done extremely well, it was the conversations between Liza and Dylan. Donna Kauffman wrote a template of how romance characters fall in love through dialogue and when done well the reader will fall right along with them.
There was a good side story involving a little left over business from Dylan's Vegas days that fit in nicely, but it did not hijack the story. If you are looking for a true romantic read about falling in love I highly recommend "His Private Pleasure".
