Book Review-- Party Crasher by April Angel

Synopsis: She crashed his party and became his prize…

According to one annoying Drex Callum, Chris is a “nosy reporter.” And maybe she is. She’s heard of the super secretive event known as the Seduction Party, and she won’t be content until she finds a way in. The last thing she expects to find is that Drex is the host. She’ll never get an invitation from her nemesis—unless she finds a way to get one herself. And breaking into his house is nothing if it means getting the scoop. But what she gets instead is an eye-full of the man himself, half-naked and more than she’d ever dreamed he could be in all her teenage fantasies.

Drex has been fantasizing about Chris forever, and now that she’s a grown woman, he still has a hard time treating her like one. So when she shows up at the Seduction Party—on the auction chair!—he’s got no other choice but to teach that nosey woman a lesson. He never dreamed sex could be like this, with Chris in his room, tied to a bed, asking him for stuff that blows his mind…

The Nerd's Ramble: This book is by far one of the steamiest, sexiest things I have ever read. It's a little longer than Ms. Angel's "Wicked Valentine", and I appreciate that there was more backstory and more development with this book. Chris is a reporter, and grew up with her older brother and his best friend Drex. As a reporter she manages to worm her way into an exclusive party, and ends up in a rather-- entertaining position.

Drex is a fun character to read. I really like his and Chris' relationship and their banter. Their tension is high and it's really fun to watch the sparks fly and see what happens when they get each other alone. There is a bit of a dramatic streak and some intense situations due to another character who doesn't approve of their relationship, or Chris' access to the exclusive bash. I feel that while it was a little more rounded out, it could have done with a bit more toward the end when Chris and Drex figure out who is behind the horrible things happening to Chris.
