Lingerie for Felons
This was a fun quirky read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Wayne is a very successful Aussie, living in America. He is oh-so-yummy!!


I turned my face to him and looked into those eyes again. They were so dark and cautious, still half-closed with the effects of what we’d been doing. I reached across and traced a finger down his forehead. He closed his eyes and sighed. I leaned in close. I felt the pull of this man, like my skin and his skin were both laced with magnets, drawing us together. Over and over again. Despite all the false starts.

I kissed him then, with the full force of everything I had. His touch was soft and slow, at first. Like he was asking permission.

But not for long.

Soon he was twisting his hands in my hair and arching my head back as he burned kisses down my face and neck. He licked my clavicle, and then his mouth made its way south, my nipples aching for his tongue. When it got there, I gasped with shock.

My review will be posted on it's Release Day... 1st March!!

If there’s one universal truth, it’s this: You’re always wearing your worst underwear when you land in trouble.

Lola’s parents told her that everyone can make a difference. And she believed them. She’s been fighting the good fights since she was eleven years old. But at 23, Lola falls hard for an Australian stockbroker who thinks Doctors Without Borders is a porno and Joni Mitchell sounds like a harp seal being battered to death. She cuts him loose, but over the next fifteen years, through protests, misunderstandings, humiliating predicaments, and a number of poor underwear choices, their lives and paths continue to converge. 

Along the way, Lola learns a few important life lessons: Never wear a red lace thong to a strip search. Make sure you take motion sickness pills if you’re going to the Southern Ocean to save the whales. And sometimes, Mr Right can be all wrong, and Mr Wrong just needs time to find the right path. 

Funny, touching, emotional and political, Lingerie for Felons is Bridget Jones meets An Inconvenient Truth, about doing the right thing, finding the right person, and always thinking through your underwear choices.
