Erotic Romance, Romantic Science Fiction/Futuristic
When Mairin's lousy husband runs off with her best friend, she's left with just a few small anger issues. This year's Easter Gala will be her first chance to get the long overdue apology she's wanted from her ex. When the time comes, however, Mairin finds herself distracted by the contents of a mysterious Easter Basket.
Eostre's personalized Rebirth package arrives just in time to send her to the gala in a stunning outfit, on the arm of a sexy alien escort from the world famous Body House. Suddenly, closure doesn't seem anywhere near as important as tasting everything her Backusian playmate, Finn, has to offer. Mind-blowing orgasms are just the thing Mairin needs to take the kinks out of her post-marital mood, but when the party's over and it's time to say goodbye the positive effects are bound to take a sour turn.

HOT BOD IN A BASKET is a hot and sexy erotic romance. Don't be fooled by the word "alien" in the blurb; Finn's as human and real as us, with the same number of anatomical parts and all in perfect working order...designed to make a woman scream with pleasure all night long.
Yes, Finn is a professional escort from the planet Backus, and he is just what Mairin needs to get over her cheating ex-husband who has now married her ex-best-friend. She especially likes the screaming orgasms he gave her, but alas, the party has to end...
HOT BOD IN A BASKET is a book that doesn't take itself seriously. It aims to give the reader some fun and entertainment, and it did just that in 75 pages. The sex is hot and sizzling--of course, what do you expect from a hero who is a professional sex expert, and who will try do just about anything?
Iris Astres did a good job in differentiating her characters. I thought Finn was portrayed as alien enough, in terms of his thoughts and how he goes about doing things. That said, the situation with Mairin's exes was strange enough to make me pause, but perhaps it's more realistic that way, as real life is strange and messy.
This book is also about Mairin's journey--her growth as a person, what she wants most in life and also sexually. I like that she's doing her best to get over the betrayal and her divorce, but of course, there's nothing like a hot man to push the process along. Perhaps Finn was the first man to do it for her and the first one to be nice to her, but I do wish she could've gotten to know him more (other than the most physical way) before we see any declaration of deeper feelings.
Still, HOT BOD IN A BASKET has a nice concept and the story flows well, perfect reading for when you need a little something to heat you up.
