Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis

Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis

Before I begin discussing my thoughts on Simply Irresistible, let’s review a thing or two. I’ll be the first to admit it: romance novels, specifically of the adult variety are not my thing. I read (past tense) a lot of Harlequin romances when I was younger. Apparently, it was cool to read those books with the sultry scenes on the covers.
