Blog Tour: Enticing Daphne by Jessica Prince

Title: Enticing Daphne
Author: Jessica Prince
Genre: Sassy Romantic Comedy

It’s easy to stop believing in happily ever afters when the man you thought you’d spend the rest of your life with abandons you right before your wedding day. After that disastrous event I decided that commitment was for suckers. I was young, successful, and in the prime of my life.
I didn’t need a man to make me happy.
Then an unexpected blast from the past came waltzing into my studio and decided I was a challenge he was more than willing to accept. The only problem is that he doesn’t remember he’s met me before.
He’s the ultimate playboy, determined to stop at nothing until he entices the hell out of me. But if Caleb McMannus thinks he can lure me in with his sinful looks and silver tongue, then he’s…probably right.

Daphne doesn’t believe in true love. She was burned by her own mother and her fiancĂ© Stephan. That whole fiasco was enough to turn her off. She may not believe in love, but she sure as hell believes that she can have a good time with a hot partner. 

I gave up on finding Mr. Right and started concentrating on finding Mr. Right Now. 

She and her friends Sophia and Lola have a radio talk show instructing women how to make the most of their lives. 

After a particularly bad day she finds herself deep in Mojito’s. Enter gorgeous guy with the gorgeous eyes. Commence the witty conversation, followed by an incredible one night stand. Names are not exchanged. 

By the time I finally dressed and headed back to my house, I’d come three more times. And just like he’d promised, I had trouble walking thanks to my jelly-like legs.
Best. One-night stand. Ever.

Months later, Daphne still hasn’t forgotten hot guy. So imagine her surprise when he shows up in her office. Seems he’s a friend of Grayson Lockhart’s. The owner of the radio station. The guy who wants Lola. His name is Caleb McMannus. Daphne is mortified. What will she say to him? How much more awkward can this get? Buckle up those seatbelt ladies, cause it’s gonna get a whole lot more awkward. 

Let’s just say that I had a hard time with this plot line. I mean they shared crazy, wild, the best they’ve ever had sex and then…..hmmm.

Oh hell no.

The story is told from both POV’s so we get inside Caleb’s head. He has an explanation but I’m still not feeling it. 

If I didn’t make it right, there’d be no chance of me getting her back into bed, and now that I knew she was only a few floors away, every single fiber of my body cried out to go caveman on her ass and drag her back to my cave for a repeat performance. 

I’ve decided to move on, shake off the part I didn’t like, and I’m glad I did. Daphne is a strong character and Caleb is slightly tortured. Maybe I’ll give him a pass after all. 

"A momentary bout of stupidity on my part,” I quipped. 

Caleb is funny, really funny. The dialogue is great and the story really picks up after this. There’s family drama and a little twist to spice things up. There’s plenty of Lola and Sophia and we get a little more details about Fiona. (who we started out hating in Seducing Lola, but quickly made her part of our group) Her story is next. (I’m thinking Deacon, Caleb’s friend, will bring a ton of angst to her story) 

" You told me that you take care of what’s yours. Well, so do I, and you’re mine, Caleb."

Google was quickly becoming the bane of my existence.
What had started as curiosity about Caleb McMannus had blossomed into a full-blown obsession. Once you Googled, there was no going back. I was disgusted with myself.
Not only because it seemed I’d banged a guy whose dick had already been in half the female population of the United States, but also because I couldn’t stop thinking about the stupid man-whore. It was a sickness. A gross, disappointing sickness that I’d spent weeks trying to cure myself of to no avail.
Each gossip column of his sexcapades, each picture of him in a compromising position—and there were many, all of them with a different woman—was cringe-worthy. But I couldn’t stop myself from searching them out.
What was worse, I couldn’t stop thinking about our night together. It had been the most intense, toe-curling experience of my life. And even though I pretty much hated him for forgetting about me, I wanted it again.
Damn my needy, traitorous vagina!

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.
Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.
In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.
Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.
