Review--Taking the Heat (Jackson: Girls' Night Out, #3)

Taking the Heat ( Jackson: Girls' Night Out, #3)Taking the Heat by Victoria Dahl
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was unsure whether to shelf this under "romance" or "erotic romance", but I ended up going with "romance". Be aware, however, this delightful little story has lots of sex. Really, really, good sex. The kind of sex that if you were on the receiving end, you'd want to call your BFF at 3 a.m. to give her blow-by-blow details.

There's also a charming love story here. Librarian Gabe is in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on a temporary assignment to bring their library more into the digital book and media realm, but it's a labor of love. He's a rock climber, and being out of NYC is recharging his batteries and making him feel alive. But he knows he can't stay.

Veronica writes the "Dear Veronica" advice column in the local paper and online, but she's a hot mess of insecurity and sexual repression. When she meets Gabe there's attraction, but she doesn't know how to get around to discussion of the big "V" issue, and I don't mean "V" for Veronica.

All of Dahl's "Girls' Night Out" stories are entertaining, and this is a wonderful addition to the line-up. If you're looking for hot reading set in ski country, these are the books you want.
