Heather thinks she has it all—an interesting lover, a dream job, and a new wardrobe to match her take-charge attitude. But everyone has a past, and when Heather confronts hers at work she’ll be hard-pressed to hold onto her newfound confidence and resolve. Does she trust Tony enough to let him help her or will she tackle the issue on her own?
Still intrigued by the young woman and the multiple layers she presents to the world, Tony begins to change his life, too—for what he hopes is the better. He quit his high-powered career to find peace in a less stressful day-to-day existence. Desire for Heather still invades his every waking moment, and when trouble threatens their sexual explorations he makes the hardest choice of his life. One he may soon regret.

Heather and Tony & the Case of the Exes (5 stars)
Just when everything in Heather and Tony's lives seems to be moving forward their exes ride back in to cause trouble. If you read the blurb that probably sounds like an epic amount of spoiler but if you're anything like me when it comes to reading a follow-up to a romance... you HATE it when a couple you think found their HEA are threatened by an ex's arrival. Then this one had to go and have two!!!
Heather and Tony continue their sexy fun from VANILLA ON TOP and it's just as good this go around. Maybe even a little better because they're starting to put some words to how they feel about one another behind lust. But it does get complicated as they choose to sort out their problems with their respective exes in their own ways. How could it not be right?
I admit I wavered a bit between a 4 and a 5 on VANILLA TWIST because it took me some time to feel like the characters were as enjoyable a second time around. This is definitely one to read right after it's predecessor if you want the full effect. What made it worth the 5 was ultimately that this felt like an extra long epilogue. Like the lust from before had finally smelted down into a full-fledged relationship with staying power without losing any of the sexual momentum of the first. Very sexy, mildly angsty, completely satisfying.
