Full Disclosure - Review

Thirty-eight-year-old divorcee Holly Burrows has had enough of battery-operated love. Prompted by an ad left at her law office, she investigates Hunk Du Jour, a website designed to foster ‘adult connections’. After weeks of sexy emails and phone calls with surf hunk Kent, she's ready to test their chemistry in person. But first she has to get through lunch with her colleague Alex, a man with a brain as agile as his body. When their consultation ends with a bang, she barely remembers the man she'd lined up for dessert. Now she thinks she's juggling two hot young guys. How can she choose between her two gorgeous cubs – and why do they remind her of each other?

I had Full Disclosure by Cari Quinn on my to buy list after hearing good things about it around the Twitterverse, so i was tickled pink (hot pink ;) ) when the author sent me a copy to read to see what i thought of it. And it sat in my TBR mountain just waiting for my list to dwindle and read. And dammit why did i wait, 'cause this book in a word: Erotically Awesome! (yes ok, that's two words :P )
Heavily character driven, my favourite kind of book, is all about Holly and Alex. Holly two years divorced has been exchanging hot emails with a surfer guy Kent she met on a date site, ready to bump hips with him, she first goes out to lunch with friend and collegue Alex, i wont tell you how it goes with Kent or how it progresses from lunch to the bedroom..but DAYUM! From there it is a fast rollercoater ride of Intense passionate no holds barred sex scenes, I love Alex's confidence and Holly's "go get 'em" attitude, it's why the fast leap from lunch to sex worked and didn't feel rushed or awkward in any way.
He kissed her until she couldn’t remember her
own name, or his. Until the world and her rules for
it simply ceased to matter.

 The book jogs along nicely, i could have read a further two hundreds pages and not have been bored of these characters, there is some laugh out loud moments, a sentence about "tentacles" in particular that had me LOLing suddenly, i'll let you discover just how that is slotted into the story for yourself ;)
I don't usually like many heroines, there's always an irritating quality about them, they're either too tough and kick ass, too slutty, too whiny, too mousy...but in the words of Goldilocks, Holly was just right! She had a wicked sense of humour and you have to admire a cougar for getting a guy like Alex who was just all that and a bag of crisps! I'd happily cougar all over him.

He had it all. Brains? Check. Gorgeous body? 
Indeed. Amazingly talented tongue and cock?
Absolutely. Mouth a sailor would appreciate? Oh,yeah.  

Man alive, she was going to need treatment
soon. Sex rehab for chubby cougars who’d bedded
dangerously sexy and deceitful younger men. 

For a spell bindingly erotic read that has some of the best sex scenes i've ever read, this is the book for you, Cari Quinn leaves nothing out of the love scenes and for a character driven book you really feel you know both Holly and Alex, the writing style i loved, there was nothing that made me want to skip entire paragraphs, with an easy flow and since i've joined the ranks of big girl panties there wasn't anything that i found squick worthy, not to say it's vanilla in any way. Because it's not. SO NOT! I do like when a guy is inventive. S'all i'm saying!

If i had to think of a negative it would be i'd wished we'd seen Holly and Alex first meet, instead of joining their story mid way. It by no means detracts from the awesome that is Full Disclosure, it was just something fleetingly i'd thought about after i'd finished the book.

So what more can i say, except i LOVED it!

I give Full Disclosure 4.5 sparkles out of 5! A Cougar-licious read!
