Deadly Sexy
Grade : C+

I have long been a fan of Beverly Jenkins, but I have to say that Deadly Sexy, while at times entertaining, is not one of her best books.

Jessi Teresa (JT) Blake, or “Lady T” to her clients and rivals alike, is a successful sports agent who works hard to get her talented clients what they want, and is richly rewarded for her efforts. When her Lexus stalls on a California freeway, she finds herself in the rare position of needing help. Help comes in the form of truck driver Reese Anthony, who stops and offers her a ride. In Reese, JT finally meets a man who excites her, challenges her, and intrigues her. The feeling is mutual. Despite their attraction, they part ways when they arrive at her destination.

What Reese neglected to tell JT is that he is a former cop, now turned private investigator, and he’s investigating a murder for the football commissioner’s office. There is a clear conflict of interest here. Reese is looking into some of the very people JT represents. As much as he wants her in his bed, and in his life, he is reluctant to pursue her because he does not want to damage her hard earned reputation. But when someone threatens JT’s life, Reece – along with her athlete clients – feels compelled to protect her. Reese and JT soon give into their mutual attraction. Their interactions are sexy and steamy, and lust quickly changes to love.

Deadly Sexy starts slowly; it took me quite a while to get into it. Once I did, though, it passed the time. The story suffers from predictability, which limits its entertainment value, the end result being an unmemorable read. I would not rush out and buy this book, but if you happen to be in the library, you might want to add it to your list.
