Book Review: New York Minute by Melinda Dozier

NYMShy accountant Veronica Bass is determined to live it up a little before settling down with a perfectly respectable man to live a perfectly respectable life, just the way her mother wants.

So when rock star Diego Diaz flashes his bedroom eyes at her during a wedding reception, Veronica swallows her shyness and leads him to the nearest hotel room. Now this total sex god keeps popping up in her life, and she finds herself telling some not-so-little white lies to keep him interested.

Weddings…the perfect place to forget who you are and be who you want to be. At least that’s how Veronica Bass sees it. She has a job that not everyone deems exciting,  a life that’s comfortable enough and an overbearing mother that wants her to find Mr. Right and settle down—which Veronica intends to do. First, Veronica will become Vero. One last hurrah before she settles down to be who she’s expected to be. One night of passion. One evening where she can forget who she is and be Vero—sultry sex bomb.

Diego is tired of the same old. Same old reaction from the people he meets. Same old relationships with women. Same old crazy lifestyle. It’s time to settle down and find the one. And the one he finds is Vero. One night with Vero just isn’t enough, Diego needs more, so when they bump into each other again, Diego is determined not to let her go. Problem is, Vero isn’t the super interesting woman she claims to be, she’s Veronica—accountant, ordinary, plain.

Thinking Diego is only after a quick fling, Veronica spins lie after lie to appear more interesting. As Diego’s intentions become clearer, Veronica has one heck of a mess to clear up.

The opening chapter of this book really sucked me in. Veronica was very easy to connect with. She’s a bit of a klutz and not quite sure what she’s doing. Diego made me drool, he’s smokin’ hot! The initial meet of these two I really enjoyed, and each time Vero came up with another lie I squirmed!

Vero, for all her little lies, is still a loveable character. She’s just feeling trapped by her mother’s expectations. Diego is a bit cheesy—I prefer my male characters to be a little more alpha, however he’s so darn sweet and oh so sexy.

The chemistry between the pair is so far beyond electric that if you touch it, you’ll burst into a ball of fire. However, as I continued to read I began to feel like I was being smothered. The constant touching, eyeballing, inward squirming and suggestive dialogue became a little much and slightly repetitive. That said, the story was still fabulous and very enjoyable. A delightful little read with a satisfying end. 4/5
