ARC Review: The List by Tawna Fenske

This is kind of a cute fast read for all you contemporary romance fans. A computer geek (and also a billionaire) has grown weary of the money hungry hoe train that is constantly chugging down his block. Simon is still interested in a little sexual healing from time to time but he certainly wants it with someone who does not look at him like a walking ATM. When Cassie stumbles into Simon's shop with dirt smudged pants and absolutely no intent to seduce him into taking her shopping, Simon is instantly intrigued. 

Cassie is a quirky story in her own right. She has a PhD in dirt or something and has spent more time on her academic pursuits than romantic pursuits. Things get interesting when Cassie makes a list of all the lies she's told her married sisters about her sex life. Her laptop gets stuck with the list on the screen and she takes it to Simon's shop to fix it. Can you guess what happens next? Yes, Simon offers to go through the sexy list with Cassie so she will have credibility when discussing her wild side with her sisters.

What I like about this book is that it was fun and light hearted. There is no abundance of angst here and almost no unnecessary drama. What I just found to be ok were the awkward moments between Cassie and Simon when they were trying to figure their strictly "list" hook up out. I also felt like both Simon and Cassie were just a little too good. I know I'm cynical but I need a little dirt on my characters to keep things interesting. The sex scenes were really average which is weird in a book that's all about sexual exploration.

At the end of the day this is a fun contemporary romance. No grit or grime and really no surprises but still a good read.
