ARC Review: Drop Dead Sexy by Katie Ashley

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 back woods 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?

Drop Dead Sexy is a great blend of humor, romance and lots of mystery!

Olivia Sullivan is a unique character with a unique career. She is the town's mortician and Coroner. If that isn't intimidating for any man, then I don't know what is. 

Olivia is single, funny and just unlucky when it comes to men in her life. Especially when intimacy happens (and it's hilarious!). Because of this, she becomes jaded with hook-ups. But she's in desperate need of a man to fix that. Plus her hilarious mother and grandmother are always on her case. 

To solve this, she just needs one hot fling. In comes Holden Caulfield Mains (aka Catcher). He's the handsome agent that ends up having a hot one-night stand. And that is what she just needed. A one-night stand and to never see him again. Wrong!

When a murder happens in town and she's there on a case, little did she know that Catcher there to solve the case too. Drop Dead Sexy takes you through funny and hot moments as the attraction between these two characters develop. Plus, it gives you plenty of mystery to find the killer. Another fun and quick read by Ms. Ashley
