Versa couldn’t get that song out of her head, nor the man who sang it while renovating the house next door. Tall, built and tanned, he wore faded jeans and a tool belt and his body drove her wild. Theo had plans for the girl next door.

He’d spent all summer dreaming about her creamy skin and voluptuous body. He’d spent all summer with a hard on. Time to make his move. When Theo and Versa finally meet, the summer temperature turns up. Way, way up.


A 24-page dynamo. I loved it. It kept my attention and in the end Josee Renard delivered with her vignette, WHAT’S NEW PUSSYCAT? I have to admit the title is what attracted me when first coming across it. I wanted to see how the song that everyone hates to admit stays in their head could translate over into a romance/erotica short.

Versa and Theo. A hot duo. I loved how Theo used the song “What’s New Pussycat?”, to reel Versa in. To keep her interested in him, wanting him without even having to touch her. Just his singing made her want him. Now that is one powerful set of lungs. The author was able to develop the romance quite amiably within the perimeters of a short read. Which indeed left me satisfied. I felt that the relationship and the ensuing feelings that developed were quite realistic. The pace of the story is quick, but again, I didn’t feel rushed or cheated at all.

The vivid description in the book was excellent. I could actually see it in my mind’s eye, hell it was almost as if I could touch and feel everything that was happening. The one thing I can say is that I wished the book were longer. Yes I was satisfied, but I still would have relished more of this read. I do appreciate the fact that the auther let us know in the end how the two end up. Nothing worse than not knowing how characters end up in the end. So every question that one could possibly have about the characters’ conflicts are nicely wrapped up.

Sexy, sexy little vignette and I loved every bit of it. The goal was to get the temperature up and indeed that was accomplished. I will be on the look out for more Josee Renard.

Four stars for the heat, sweetness and sexiness all rolled up into 24 little pages!
