Blog Tour Review: Drop Dead Sexy by Katie Ashley

DDS_LIVE_BANNER



dropdeadsexy1














For Olivia Sullivan, love is more a four letter curse word than a sentiment. Growing up as the daughter of a small town mortician, guys didn’t warm to the fact there were dead people in her house. At thirty, taking over the family business and becoming the town Coroner helped to cement her undateable status. Of course her past sex history didn’t help matters either. Attempt number one with her first love ended barely before it got started with a horrific latex allergy hospitalization. Attempt number two had him coming and then going with an undiagnosed heart condition. For the past three years, Olivia has closed up shop for fear of what might happen next in the bedroom. After being forced to go single to her mother’s lingerie shower, Olivia stumbles into an out of town bar with one intention: find an able bodied stud to go home with to end her losing sex streak. Enter Holden Caulfield Mains aka Catcher, who earned his nickname not just from the book he was named for, but for the fact he was sure to catch the attention any woman who came within a five mile radius. Waking up after a night of the most mind blowing sex she could have ever imagined, a horrified Olivia runs away thinking she’s left Catcher behind. When Olivia’s small town is wracked by its first murder, she never could have imagined her one night stand would reappear in the form of the GBI’s lead investigator. To her mortification, Catcher isn’t ready to let go of their sizzling chemistry, and he doesn’t understand the meaning of no. As things start to heat up between them, the body count starts to rise, and they’re led on a wild goose chase from backwoods mountain Nudist Colonies to altercations with the Dixie Mafia. Can Olivia and Catcher survive to solve the murder while also not succumbing to their explosive passion?

Is there any genre Katie Ashley can’t do? The answer my friends is NO! Drop Dead Sexy proves it! This fun, sexy comedic romance had me laughing one second, in shock another and swooning the next. If you’re looking for a super fun read, THIS IS IT!
Olivia has had the worst look in men and sex. Insert more laughs that imaginable but I won’t tell you what they were. She’s the town mortician and coroner and let’s be honest, that’s not a sexy profession. Enter Holden aka Catcher. A hot, successful one night stand who came back wanting more. But can she give it? Catcher was downright sexy. He saw Olivia for who she was and he wanted her and wouldn’t stop at anything until he had her again. Olivia and Catcher’s relationship felt natural to me. The progression wasn’t rushed (minus sex the same night as meeting each other). I love when the reader can feel the relationship develop.
Not only was this book fun as all hell, sexy as sin, it was like a cozy mystery too. Who’s done it at it’s finest. I truly enjoyed Drop Dead Sexy and seriously recommend to anyone with a sense of humor and a great love story! 




I may have a slight crush on Katie Ashely.  This is nothing new to her as I have told her many of time and even have come up with some slogans to her other books (yep, I termed the phase Peshgasam)!  So you know that I ran to the kindle the minute that this was downloaded and ready to go.  I was not disappointed in the least.

When I first started reading this I expected the same as the other books that she has written.  They are awesome, but the are drama and romance.  This one adds a ton of humor and I was not expecting it, but I LOVED it to say the least.  If you think about the main character as a mortician and think of any gross and tongue and cheek things that could happen---that is it,

Olivia has some weird situations happen to her when it comes to sex, so no wonder she is a little gun shy when it comes to sex. I won't give away what happens, but I might have has to change my panties after laughing.  OMG!!!   So back to Olivia- no wonder after her moms "naughty" bridal shower she was looking for a stromg--ehh---man to take away the years of itch.  In comes Catcher.  He is the hot body and has the moves that she craves.  What she thought was going to be a one night stand ends up going a bit longer after a murder in her small town and the person in charge of the investigation- you go it Catcher.

I adore this book and I am sure that it will be one that I will read over and over as the years go on. Just like every other book that Katie Ashley has written.  While the story was funny and kept me going, it was the way that you fall for the characters that makes you coming back for more.
