Suzy Bean is a woman who lives in the moment and doesn't mind her overabundant curves. The man she secretly loves, JC Mosino, is the only one who can make her untamed sexual fantasies a reality. After having a bit too much to drink at a party, JC drives her home, where their passions ignite. Suzy thinks that this is night where she and JC will go from being friends to lovers.
Unfortunately it doesn't happen quite like that and Suzy ends up throwing JC out because of something he says in the heat of the moment that she takes the wrong way.
Now Suzy's whole world has been turned upside down because she's given up smoking and is sexually frustrated. When she meets a handsome, flirty stranger, who makes her body respond, she becomes even more frustrated. This chance meeting is one she'll never forget, for Mr. Hunk is her new boss, Xavier Marks. Suzy feels guilty because her attraction to Xavier is growing while she still pines for JC.
JC's craving for Suzy is out of control where he wants nothing more than to work things out and become her lover. He has a plan in doing so, but has to work fast as Xavier tries to seduce Suzy. JC is having no part of that, and will do whatever he can to claim this brassy, buxom beauty for his own.
I have come to expect realistic characters, through-provoking plots, and insanely hot love scenes from KT Grant. In “The Claiming of Suzy,” Ms. Grant delivers yet again. This contemporary romance will keep you hooked until the HEA.
I loved Suzy’s character in “For the Love of Mollie” and was thrilled to see her get her own book. Though this character exudes confidence and a snappy wit, she is not 100% comfortable in her own skin. When her love interest JC speaks without thinking, it sets her off and almost into the arms of another man. It was agonizing to “watch” as both characters kept making the wrong moves in an attempt to get the other back.
“The Claiming of Suzy” is a great read and I am eagerly looking forward to the next book (blurb is in the back). However, I do suggest first picking up “For the Love of Mollie” to get acquainted with some of the secondary characters.
