Synopsis (Goodreads):
Avily Donahoe has dated way too many losers trying to get over Jerrick Hunter, the man who taught her everything about the life of crime she left behind. Now he has the balls to show up and ask her to pose as his sub, complete with skimpy leather outfit, to get inside a no-faes-allowed sex club?

Oh, hell no. If anyone's going to be wearing next to nothing, it's going to be Jerrick...as "her" bitch.

Five years ago, Jerrick realized the lonely kid he'd taken under his wing had grown into a tempting, desirable woman-and he'd cut her loose. If gaining her help now means hitting his knees with a leash and a collar, so be it.

But soon their front escalates into an all-too-real erotic game where the prize is the one thing that tantalizes him beyond reason. Their hearts aren't the only thing they'll lose if they fail. It could mean the end of everything-and everyone-they know and love.

Warning: This book contains male groveling, the occasional blindfold and feather tickler, wicked sex magic, and a fae thief who isn't afraid to wear ass-less chaps when the job calls for it.
My Thoughts: If the sexy, sexy, sexy cover doesn't tell you straight away that this book is chock-full of classic Jodi Redford naughtiness, then you need to immerse yourself in the wonderfulness of her *ahem* body of work. You won't be sorry. Also, this cover does not lie - this book... it brings the sexy.

Where to start? Ahhh, yes. We met both Avily and Jerrick in book 1 where their history was hinted at but not laid out in all its bittersweet glory. Holy smokes! Those two have a lot of heartache behind them. Between Avi's sister's lying and general awfulness and the complete terror Jerrick felt at the possibility of tainting Avi's life when she offered herself to him, these two have a lot to work out. Good thing that fate threw them together into a situation that called for minimal clothing and large amounts of public touching. I mean, it would have taken AGES for them to get around to having almost-sex in a room full of people otherwise. AGES.

I loved how Jerrick had to suck it up and play the submissive when his gut instinct was to step in and take charge. Especially where Avi was concerned. I loved that Avi was bound and determined to order him around and that she applied herself to the task of learning how to do it convincingly. Their training sessions were downright smokin'. Their 'acting' when they were in character cracked me up. I just had oodles of fun watching those two try to keep their cool when the other was driving them mad with want.

Shenanigans, sexy times, and leather pants. Jodi Redford knows how to treat her characters right!

    4. I want them all. :D

      I'll have to decide between the first two because it's just too damn hot to read a Christmas story (I'll save that one for when I'm making *my* naughty list).

    5. If this helps you decide, right now, Cat Scratch Fever is a stand alone (although I think she's planning more books in the future) while That Voodoo You Do is the first in a several book series.
