What's a woman to do when the men in her life persist in telling her what she can and cannot do without checking with her first? Well, in Lacey Parker's case, you take a field position with the DEA and when your husband tells you, no, you leave and don't look back. Then, when he doesn't come for you, you resort to something drastic to shake things up in SHAKE UP by Joyce Palmer.
Likes: I really enjoyed the characters. Both John and Lacey seemed like a good match for each other and played off each other's strengths and weaknesses. I thought the secondary characters helped round out the story and I loved how protective everyone was. The bad guys (and girl) were just menacing enough to keep the suspense going until the end.
If you enjoy contemporary romance with hot sex and strong characters, then you definitely want to give Ms. Palmer's story a read. It has all the makings for an enjoyable evening and you may find yourself staying up well past your bedtime because you couldn't put it down.
