Review: Mr. Buff by April Angel


Title: Mr. Buff
Series: No, but it should be!
Author: April Angel
Published: October 2012, Etopia
Tour: Yes, Bewitching Book Tours
Format: Ebook provided for review

Every morning, Alexandra drinks in the sexy vision of Mr. Buff through his office window across the street. He takes his workouts seriously, and Alexandra never misses the opportunity to see him return, sweaty and pumped, to his office suite to shower. Turns out Andrew enjoys the view just as much as she does and can't take his eyes off the woman who makes his blood roar.

But when Alexandra bumps into Mr. Buff at a club, things go from visual to physical. And much to her delight, she learns that Mr. Buff is really Mr. Dominant. She loves spending time with him and getting to know him the way nature intended, but she's looking for more than a fling. How's she supposed to make Mr. Buff realize he's Mr. Right?

Alexandra has the best job ever. What does she do? I don’t know, it was some sort of accounting type job. That’s not why it’s the best. Her office location makes it the best. Because right across the way she can see right into the office of one Mr. Buff. And Mr. Buff likes to take a shower every day and walk around with his shirt off sometimes. And lately, Mr. Buff has noticed Alexandra staring, and they’ve begun waving.

And Mr Buff notices Alexandra, too.

This story started off innocently enough. I laughed at the author’s choice of names, like Mr Buff and Jerk-Off Jack. There are several points in the story that really made me laugh out loud. Ok, one in particular made me snort right through my nose! You can tell the author has a great sense of humor, it really comes through her writing well.

“His wicked grin turned the man from handsome to outright gorgeous when he waved back. Balling and holding papers in a death grip, she dropped her gaze. All she needed was for the man to think she had some kind of sick fetish for watching him.” 

This story has a bit of a voyeurism aspect, obviously. It was really a fun way to introduce the two characters to each other. I found Alexandra to be funny and a bit smart ass, which I loved. But of course, the big draw of the story for me was Mr Buff, a man we will soon come to know as Andrew.

“Bitchy models and needy daddy’s girls exhausted him. A woman who knew her own mind, that’s what he wanted.”

Ok, let me just say it. Andrew is hot, obviously. But a little treat I wasn’t expecting was that Andrew was also oh so very dominant. He plays the dominant, aggressive male card to a T and it works perfectly.  He's is definitely getting added to my list of favorite book boyfriends!

“Wolfish and dark, his scrutiny caressed her flesh, marking a trail of heat. “

There were so many things in this book I could quote, it was one fabulous line after another. But lets face facts: when the action started I put my pen down and I didn’t pick it up again until the story was over. The heat in the story would have set my notepad on fire, I have no doubt about that. Holy heck! When these two get it on, they get it ON. Their chemistry was white hot fire, and I loved every minute of it. The characters were fun and engaging while the non-sex scenes were packed full of fun and drama, depending on the situation. The author’s writing has a really nice flow to it, and I am definitely an instant fan. If you are looking for a hot erotic romance, I think that you should definitely start with Mr. Buff!
