There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I recommend reading this series in order.
With excitement and drama in the first few pages and a story to keep us guessing throughout the book, Sexy as Sin ticked all the boxes for me, including Ms James's usual steam between her lead characters and her ability to make you feel like you've traveled to the destinations in her books.
Loved the AFL (Australian Football League) references throughout the book.
"SPOILER ALERT" Dave's footy team didn't win the Premiership cup this Year.
Cheers Michelle in Australia.

Despite their differences Brett and Willow become close, especially after Brett breaks his leg and Willow offers to look after him while he recovers but there are sinister forces at work as Willow and several guests get food-poisoning at an event she catered. Is it jealousy? Is Amanda cheating Willow somehow? Or is one of the guests the real target?
I read the first few chapters of this on Rosalind James' website and it didn't really grab me, unlike the two previous novels, but when it came up on special offer I bought it anyway and have only just got around to reading it.
There is a definite Pretty Woman vibe, something which Willow acknowledges, Brett is much older and an uptight billionaire businesswoman whereas Willow is the younger, free-er spirited woman who helps him to relax and metaphorically smell the roses. In return, Brett gives Willow the confidence to stand up to Amanda and assert her right to be heard.
Set against the stunning natural beauty of Byron Bay the reader is swept away by the descriptions of the landscape and the amazing scents of the countryside, enticed by the fabulous food that Willow prepares for Brett and her clients, the romance of a thoughtful billionaire and his impressive rental home.
From a dubious start I came to love this book, Brett and Willow. Although the mystery behind who was sabotaging Willow was not a huge surprise it was still a well-thought out plot and an engaging read, I especially liked the reference to the Australian soap!
Overall, a great addition to the trilogy, glad I took advantage of the sale.
Got to confess that I skipped to the end to find out about the mushroom debacle and then skimmed through the excessively detailed descriptions of Brett's many properties. There seemed no point to mention these apart from letting us know Brett is incredibly rich and has good taste. I also thought that including all of Azra's drama was unnecessary as was the scene in Sinful where she has lingerie bought for her. We had already got the idea that Brett was as rich as Croesus without reading about the luxurious plane journey and that she can use his credit card again to buy more clothes. Yawn!
I felt that the personality of the heroine weakened as the story went on. She started off as an original and appealing character but became more and more boring and bland as the novel progressed. Her lack of business skills and even basic Maths ability was irritating. I almost started to feel that she deserved to get ripped off for being stupidly naive with her funds. As for her TSTL moment? Let's all go out for a wander alone in a strange city with no guide map and no phone! Doh!
Willow Sanderson tries to fill her life with rainbows and unicorns, sparkly ones. It may be because she had such sad stuff in her growing up years, or it may be because it's tough out in the big wide world all on her own. Whatever it is, she tries hard to think of the positives in every day. She is a Cordon Bleu chef and is a partner in the catering firm, Nourish. Willow first sees Brett on the morning that her surfing session "went to custard". He was standing on the beach in his business suit, waving at her..... and so begins this wonderful tale of a growing love, between two people who didn't really know they needed each other, until they did.
Brett Hunter is successful in most everything he does. People come to him because he gets things done, they can trust his judgement, his word and his numbers. He is a property developer, on a grand scale. He has created up market housing developments all over the world, catering to the rich but ever mindful of the context of where they are building. He first sees his flame haired, green eyed mermaid as she skims the waves in Byron Bay on the east coast of Australia. Then he sees the grey fin right behind her, and yes, that is how they meet. Every moment they spend together after that is a dance, tippy toeing ever closer, teasing and learning each other.
One of Brett's big talents is communication, but unfortunately he forgets this once or twice when it matters, and sends Willow the wrong message. When he's remembering the bad things that have happened in his past, it's as if he freezes, and this can give the wrong impression to those observing.
Willow finds herself embroiled in a crisis at work and she asks Brett for help. This story thread pops up throughout the book until its dramatic climax. Willow is heart breakingly unaware of how attractive Brett finds her, she is not self-confident as a woman, only as a chef. I adore Willow's character, she is quirky, colourful, talented and hard working and those recipes - wow! She is like that proverbial swan - gliding through her work life but her legs are paddling like heck under the water. Willow and Brett are fabulous together, Willow's sassy retorts and Brett's self assured humour are great.
Rosalind James is a superb story teller and keen observer of human relationships and the conversations and interaction between the two main characters is realistic and pulls you into their story. I totally enjoyed the journey that Brett and Willow travel together, Sexy As Sin (Sinful, Montana Book 3) is a brilliant read and though it is a standalone, you would enjoy reading Books 1 and 2 in the series which are wonderful. Sexy As Sin is a M/F romance with a HEA ending.
Willow Sanderson, a chef, is grateful that he saved her life, and invites him home for breakfast with her. There is an immediate attraction between them, which is an unusual occurrence for Brett, because he normally trusts no-one. Unbeknown to. Willow, he is the client at her next function, which goes horribly wrong in several ways. Brett saves the day for the function, he is absolutely the man to rely on in an emergency. Later though, he suffers a bad accident when he is with Willow, which puts him out of action for several weeks. He employs Willow to feed him, as he not in a position to help himself. She continues working during the day at the company where she is a partner, but the next function she caters also has serious issues, it looks as though somebody might be trying to sabotage the business!
The tension builds, Brett and Willow become very attached to each other, while continuing to look for clues to what is affecting the business. There are more twists and turns, both in their personal life and what is happening within the business, and it all comes to a very tense and exciting climax. Rosalind is so good at writing emotions, the story is funny, sad, romantic and extremely emotional; and these are such lovely people! Small clue: tissues might be required to mop away the tears in a few places!
Brett ‘speaks’ as much as Willow and what I particularly liked is that early on in the book he owns his feelings towards her.
So often, books are built around couples fighting their feelings for each other, not wanting to own up to them, misunderstandings, until you want to yell in frustration at them “just ask what’s wrong”!
Well, Brett and Willow do ask and they forgive and move on. She might have some personal insecurities but she’s bright, gutsy and trusting and confident in her abilities. She’s got that Aussie directness for sure! Brett is skilled at listening and observing, he’s learned to recognise his emotions and when he’s in shut down mode; that’s not to say he wants to talk about it though.... He’s imperfect, he stuffs up but he also fronts up and delivers big time!
There are sensual descriptions, moments of fun, sharp observations, some heartbreak and this is my favourite couple of the series.
