Review: The Bottom Line by Shelley Munro

Spicing up her sex life sounds exciting…until the fantasy hits the fan.

When Maggie Drummond buys an erotic romance novel by mistake, she gets more than an unexpected eyeful. She gets an introduction to a world that arouses her to a fever pitch. Spanking.

Her boyfriend isn’t interested in pushing his vanilla-flavored sexual boundaries. Then there’s Connor Grey, who haunts her fantasies like a magical genie. As a source of masculine advice for her and her female friends, he’s off limits. The only safe place to explore her fetish is her anonymous blog.

The recent changes in Maggie don’t escape Connor’s notice. Now that her boyfriend has dropped her, he can finally—carefully—make his move. Given his family history, laying a hand on any woman, even in fun, is a line he’s reluctant to cross. But for Maggie? Anything the lady wants.

As Maggie gives in to the temptation to let Connor add some sin to her life, she finds herself juggling lies, half-truths, friendship and sensual delights. Her job is in jeopardy—and she’s falling in love. Exploring her fantasy is one thing, but she’s beginning to question if indulging her own pleasure is worth the cost to everyone around her. Especially Connor…

Warning: Contains explicit sex, spanking, and the good, the bad and the ugly about friendship.

This book was just what I needed, when I needed it. Maggie is the average woman. No secret agent/supermodel here. She lives in a small apartment, she works her 9-5 job, hangs out with her friends, and has a boyfriend that she knows isn’t perfect for her but keeps him anyway because it’s better than being lonely. Who couldn’t relate to her? Oh, and did I mention she starts a blog? 😀

Then there is Connor. Yummy, yummy Conner. He plays rugby but is completely comfortable sitting in a bar with his female friends. And he’s willing to do whatever it takes to win his woman. Of course, in typical guy fashion, he makes a few blunders which leads to some misunderstandings, but his heart is in the right place and it is all done to give Maggie what she needs.

The Bottom Line was such a fun and sexy read. There is a scene where the group of friends decide to try speed dating and Maggie starts off each meeting with “How do you feel about spanking?” I could recommend this book based on that scene alone but, luckily, I don’t have to. I thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end. Another keeper from Shelley Munro!
