Louisa Trent - Some Rough Edge Smoothin'

Tomas Ruiz doesn't do nice women, and they don't come any nicer than do-gooder Seraphina Norris. But a deal is a deal and to get what he wants, he'll do her better than good.

Sera is counting on it. This widow expects more than the boring missionary position from the sexy desperado. From Tomas Ruiz, she's thinking naughty. Now if only her much younger Latino lover lives up to... or is that down to... his bad-ass reputation.

...sometimes sex is all a man and a woman really have in common, and sometimes that's more than enough...

Some Rough Edge Smoothin' is a delightful romp with two characters whose external covers fully conceal the stories within. Tomas seems to be a rough-and-tumble bad boy with too many women on the string, who has a standing Saturday night appointment with an aggressive, whip-yielding Dominatrix, yet he demonstrates concern for Serafina even before he meets her, due to the condemned status of the Monroe Mansion. Then too, this supposed hot shot prefers plain vanilla sex, even though he owns a strip club. Serafina dresses like a conservative librarian and wields romantic history to win scholarships for the kids, yet she explodes into sensuality when confronted with Tomas, and her soft yet starchy exterior conceals a very practical mind and spirit. Louisa Trent again demonstrates her excellent grasp of character and plotting in additon to a fine imaginative talent. Some Rough Edge Smoothin' is definitely a story not to miss.

Let me begin by saying I absolutely loved Some Rough Edge Smoothin'. Tomas was a fabulous character. He was magnetic and his Latino charm oozed off the pages and into my heart. The character development was solid. I had a clear understanding of who Tomas was soul deep. I can say the same for Sera. Born and raised a missionary, she knew no other life. Yet, she craved freedom to explore life and its deviances. Tomas was her way to explore...

This was a very enjoyable story. The bad boy who wants desperately to prove to her that he is not good enough for her: it gives us some very erotic sex scenes!

This is a quite good younger man/older woman romance. The hero is a marvelous mixture of tough and vulnerable. He works hard to do what he thinks will please the heroine. . . . I fell in love with Myra. This secondary character almost stole the show. Loved the humor in the story ...

Some Rough Edge Smoothin' is a wonderful story. It is about two very different people who are able to overcome quite a few obstacles to get the love that they want. Louisa Trent has created a moving story that will have you laughing and crying along with the characters. Tomas is the quintessential alpha male, dominant and oh so sexy. Seraphina is the sweet girl next door, with a sexual goddess just waiting to come out. And Ms. Trent does not disappoint. From the first sexual encounter, these two characters set fire to the pages. This is a book with will be staying on the keeper shelf in my home.

This story was great. I was pleased by the fact that is contains characters of a different ethnicity, but the racial issue is not the focus of the story or even a problem. I don't want to ruin the story for anyone but I would like to say that towards the end of the book Sera and Tomas decide to get married and have a completely platonic relationship. It doesn't even last an hour. The love scenes are hot but there are not a lot of them. The story concentrates on building the tension between the couple first and them moving on to the sexual stuff. When if does finally happen in the latter part of the book it's hot enough to burn the pages. This was the first book I've read by Louisa Trent and I wasn't disappointed. Tomas and Sera's story will make you laugh, cry and hope that love really can conquer anything.

Watching Sera come alive and discover what she wanted, what she had been suppressing inside, was wonderful. It was great to watch Sera break down the barriers between Tomas and force him to see that she wasn't who he thought she was. Definitely a good read.

From the beginning you are captivated with Tomas's rough edge and admire Sera's determination. These characters were totally opposites but they completed each other and the author did a sensational job of revealing it. Diverse emotions play heavily into this story. Set at a steady pace with witty dialogue along with some very erotic love scenes keep this tale entertaining. A magnificent erotic love story, you will want to read over and over again.
