SPOILER FREE REVIEW 😊
Tiffany White (aka Anna Eberhart) created a cheeky, modern romance for Harlequin Temptation line with her book, Cheap Thrills.
At the beginning of Tiffany White’s category romance Cheap Thrills, the hero Crew Harper is working this side gig as a window-washer when he becomes an accidental peeping Tom. Transfixed, can only stare as sees a woman enter an office. She undresses, and he’s shocked at what’s revealed: yes, her gorgeous body, but with a delightful secret butterfly tattoo on her pert, peachy derriere. That’s right, I do read “The Daily Mail” on occasion!
After the woman changes her clothes and leaves, Crew sees a man come into her office and rifle through her desk. How outrageous! How dare this man invade a woman’s privacy?
I think it’s kind of funny how rapidly times have moved. Alexa, the heroine, has a small butterfly tattoo on her butt, and the hero acts as if it’s the naughtiest little secret a woman can keep. It’s amazing how quickly social norms change, as this was written in 1990.
Anyhow, Crew makes his way into Alexa’s life, to help her out, of course. He has to let her know that there’s a weirdo on the prowl for her. To Crew’s surprise, Alexa is not the free-spirited woman he expected to meet, but rather restrained. That’s alright, Crew has plenty of charm to carry this book, as he’s full of wit and humor. And sexiness, did I mention his sexiness? Lots of that here.
Final Analysis of Cheap Thrills
Harlequin Temptation #218, aka Cheap Thrills, is a sexy little read, where not much happens, but the characters are interesting enough to keep it engaging. I liked it just about the same as the other Tiffany White book I read, Forbidden Fantasy.
This is a short, silly romance, and the original cover appropriately shows how this story ends, happily ever after, as it should.
He was no Peeping Tom!
Crew Harper was just doing his job – washing windows outside the fourth story of a downtown office tower. But a movement behind the glass caught his eye. And what he saw was something no red-blooded male could resist–Alexia Grant undressing!
Thank goodness he was transfixed by the caramel-haired beauty before him. Because the moment she left, Crew saw a man enter Alexia’s office and rifle through her desk. The intruder was clearly up to no good. Crew had to warn the lovely Alexia, but how could he without telling her everything he saw!CHEAP THRILLS by TIFFANY WHITE
