When Miss Man-Eater…

Raquel Adams is in desperate need of a media makeover. Her already floundering reputation is made worse by her recent antics, and she doesn’t seem to care. Raquel lives life on her own terms and doesn’t answer to anyone, least of all Clayton Cox, the guy charged with making her a media darling. His take charge attitude is a problem for strong-willed Raquel, but she can’t deny the attraction she feels toward him.
Meets America’s spin doctor…

Clayton Cox is the boss, and damn good at his job. He’s hired to improve your reputation and does so by swooping in, saving the day, and moving onto the next one. But he can’t move one from his newest client. Raquel is maddening, and gorgeous enough to make him forget his rule of never getting involved with a client. But Clayton can’t forget what happened the last time he mixed business with pleasure.

All’s fair in love and war.
Raquel wants Clayton, and nothing is going to stand in her way, not even Clayton himself. He doesn’t know what hit him, and soon finds himself juggling between having to improve her reputation and feign off her advances. But Clayton’s determined to show Raquel who’s in charge at any cost, even if that means thwarting her seduction efforts. Will Miss Man-Eater change or ways? Or will Clayton become the latest victim entangled in her web?

I was so excited to read Miss Man-Eater because I absolutely loved the first book and Ms. Garner did not disappoint me! I loved this book! It was a fantastic, fast, fun and easy read! 

Raquel "Miss Man-Eater" Adams does not take crap from anybody. She's a blunt, in-your-face b*tch that you don't want to mess with. It sounds harsh, but she'd be the first one to admit what I said is true. There is much more to her than the tease-mean-girl-man-eater though. She's fiercely loyal and protective, determined, stubborn, and a fighter, but she also has a vulnerable side that had me loving her and her becoming my favorite heroine in the series. 

Clayton Cox. What can I say about Clayton Cox? He's kind of serious and broody and a jerk sometimes, but he's hot, so it works out for him. Clayton is definitely an alpha male; he's possessive, commanding, and very take charge. That's not to say that he can't be sweet and tender though. He was a great hero and while he might not be my favorite guy because Lance still is, I really loved him! 

Miss Man-Eater will make your heart ache a little, but it's a pretty light read for the most part. It was funny, entertaining, and I loved, loved, loved the sexual tension between Clayton and Raquel! It was so HOT, especially when they were driving each other crazy!

I was so glad to visit this little world that Ms. Garner has created again. I know I'm in for a good time and I just love the characters, the humor, and the heat. Miss Man-Eater was so wonderful and OH MY GOSH am I stoked but a little afraid to read the next couple of books because--WHOA--and the little synopsis for the novella that's going to be in series--well, my mind is just spinning!!! 

Miss Man-Eater is a standalone, it's told from Clayton and Raquel's POV, and they do get their HEA. There is a cliffhanger, but it involves the other characters. It's going to be a crazy wait to see what happens next!

~ Review by Paige

She played with their combined fingers. “And what about us?”

“What about us?” He feigned ignorance.

“Well, what the hell was that when we first came in here? Because at first you barely acknowledged me, and then poof, my nipple’s in your mouth.”

He let go of her hand, rubbing it down his face. “Yeah, about that…”

“Don’t you dare apologize!” she squealed, poking him with her finger, sounding like a shrew.

He grabbed her finger. “I wasn’t going to apologize. I was going to tell you I don’t know what that was. It was like I couldn’t be around you all night without touching you.”

The grin spread slowly, giddy excitement spreading throughout her. “Seriously?”

He sat up and faced her so they were eye to eye. “I’ve never been more serious.”

Raquel wanted to believe him, to attack him until he couldn’t see straight, but there were too many doubts that continued to swirl through her head while she tried to process everything he’d said. “What about your rule ’no dating clients’ rule?”

He swallowed hard. “Let’s just say I’m going to have to trust you’re not playing me for a fool.”

“I’m not.” She held up two fingers. “Scout’s honor.”

He grabbed her hand, pulling her against him. He leaned down, kissing her lightly. “You were never a scout.”

She put her hand on his face. “Hell, no, but you like me a little bad.”
