“BAD to the Bone” (B.A.D. Agency, 0.25)

The Stories

Sherrilyn Kenyon‘s “BAD to the Bone” uses the Fantasy Island backdrop for this story about a Midwestern schoolteacher winning this month’s “live out your fantasy from a book” contest. It’s so cute [& homey!] how Kenyon creates an everyday woman who gets to live out her fantasy AND meet the love of her life.

This one involves Kyle recuperating on the B.A.D. side of the island, recovering from five or six gunshots — there’s some dispute between the docs as to just how many. Marianne Webernec is the thirty-ish schoolteacher. Short, plain, a bit overweight, and she’s won the chance to play out one of her favorite scenes! Ooh, baby, I wanna know how she managed to winnow it down to just one!

Lily Carlyle‘s “Let’s Talk About Sex” is sooo cute! I just love this one.

Dr. Delia Sydney has her fingers in all sorts of…pies. And Sgt. Nick Woodruff knows at least her voice from her radio show, Let’s Talk About Sex.

Nicole Camden‘s “Nekkid Truth” is a half-and-half for me. The story itself is great, but Deborah Valley’s handicap is so depressing. I think it hits a little too close to home for me.

Anyway, Deb started making a living by shooting crime scenes for the cops, and through her handicap, became interested in shooting body parts. She became good enough that her photos of how she sees the human body are in gallery showings, and she’s made herself a nice reputation. It’s not enough of course. What Deb really wants is a chance with Detective Scott. She’s already thrown herself at him once and been shot down. She is not going to open herself up like that again…

The Cover and Title

The cover is cute with the tight backside of a man half in uniform, gun on his right, another case on his back left hip obviously with his arms around a woman. The same woman with her arms casually around his neck, one hand clasping the brim of his policeman’s hat.

The title certainly is appropriate for each hero seems to carry a Big Gun when he’s Out of Uniform.
