Quickie Review: Touching Lace (Vaughn #1) by Anne Rainey

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Taking friendship to a whole new level-Lacey Vaughn is tired of being dumped on by men. It's clear she needs help in the ways of seduction. Over cappuccinos, Lacey shares her worries with pal Nick Stone. Being the good friend that he is, Nick offers to give Lacey a few pointers in the ways of sexual pleasure.

From his first touch, Lacey forgets all about lessons. Now all she wants is more of his luscious body and skillful touches.Nick's craved Lacey for months. He's done watching her waste herself on losers. It's time she saw him as more than the dreaded good friend. He'll do nearly anything to have the little spitfire all for himself. But in order to get Lacey past her insecurities, Nick will have to put it all on the line-including his heart-and pray he doesn't lose her forever.

Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex using graphic terms. A naughty make-out session in a public place, and lots of steam.
My Thoughts:  This was a fast, fun read with plenty of steam.  Lacey gets dumped, Nick steps in to comfort her, they dance around their attraction, they get naked.  It worked.  It worked nicely.  I mean, everyone likes the best friend turned lover route, right?  Well, I do.  The best friend angle is always nice because you don't have to go through the awkward getting to know each other phase.  They already know each other!  Brilliant, right?  They can get right to the sexing.  I approve of that.

I did enjoy this book.  It had some very sweet moments and some very steamy ones.  Lacey and Nick were a good couple together and they got their freak on in a most satisfactory manner.
