I was very excited to get my hands on the third book in Avery Flynn’s Layton family series. I loved the first two books and I really enjoy Avery’s writing so I looked forward to this.
Book three, Passion Creek, tells the story of Sam Layton – the uptight history professor. However, his uptight side temporarily disappears on a trip to Las Vegas when he meets blonde bombshell Josie Winarsky. The attraction is instant and they end up in bed together. However, a discovery makes Sam think he’s been conned by Josie and things quickly go awry. The trouble is, they can’t simply go their own ways and forget about it, because Josie’s heading to Dry Creek on an artist’s retreat, and she’s bound to bump into Sam sometime.
Also, the escape to the country can’t come soon enough for Josie, who seems to have inherited some trouble from her twin brother, and she’s hoping that Dry Creek and the treasure it holds is the answer to her problems. Sam presents more problems, though, when he refuses to help her find Rebecca’s Bounty – something he’s been looking for himself for years.
Josie’s determined to save her family from harm, with or without Sam’s help, and it’s her determination and Sam’s stubbornness that makes this book such a fun read. The storyline is interesting, the characters–and their tussles–are fantastic and the sexual tension is just off the scale. This is another erotic romance from Avery Flynn that I’d definitely recommend. Hot stuff!
