"4.5 Blue Ribbons: THE PERFECT TOOL is the second book in Lara Santiago's BLIND DATE AFTER DARK series. In this fast paced storyline readers are treated to a laugh out loud situation and two characters who are completely clueless as to what is going on in each other's minds. Lynda's attitude about all her loser dates is comical and unfortunately all too familiar to many women. Max is absolutely loveable! He's honorable and knows how to pleasure a woman without having to have a map drawn for him. Ms. Santiago even adds a twist to the end of this story that stunned me but definitely added a new dimension to Max and Lynda's relationship.--Chrissy Dionne, Romance Junkies Reviews
Lynda Bloomfield carefully set the stage for her imminent seduction.
Romantic candles lit and scattered around the room?
Expensive champagne and two crystal flutes chilling close by?
New satin sheets turned down on her bed and ready for action?
Advanced arrangements made for an "experienced" stranger to come calling, grant her every sexual wish and then disappear.
Check and double check.
Lynda didn't have any false illusions about her current appearance. She looked sizzle hot and ready for sex. Or at least as hot as possible given her meager limitations. The body she'd been born with had a few minor flaws. She hated the dimples in her cheeks when she smiled, her breasts weren't as big as Hooters' girls and her hips were a little wider than she wished. However, with a lot of care and a little make up, she cleaned up well.
She'd spent the entire day in endless girly preparations for her very special date tonight. Manicure, pedicure, skin softening body treatments and best of all, she sported a brand new sex kitten outfit sure to ignite a man's libido. She was completely ready for this evening.
A perfect date with a perfect man.
Without a doubt he'd be ideal because she'd paid so much for him. A very good friend of another very good friend had recommended a cousin who worked for an exclusive "dating" service. Since she was a friend of a friend, and had pre-paid in cash, the deluxe version of a discrete male escort would make a house call and ultimately make all of her dreams come true.
Well, one dream at least.
Her vision of a delicious man skilled in the art of love-making, set to make her drunk with delight, fuel her passion and fulfill all her sexual desires for her birthday, was about to come true. This morning, she'd turned thirty. Tonight, she planned to celebrate that auspicious number with a man.
The thought of paying for sex was an additional little thrill she contemplated since she'd thought up this idea for the perfect thirtieth birthday celebration. Men did it all the time, there must be a reason. After her last dismal relationship ended badly, the "reason" became inherently clear.
Relationships were hard. Lynda wanted easy. For once in her life, she wanted to try sex with no strings and no expectations she'd ever see the guy again. She wanted to know up front that the man knew what he was doing in bed.
Her last relationship had limped along in mediocrity for an endless length of time only to conclude in a difficult break up. He'd wanted her to pay her own way and sometimes his way, too. He'd also been a selfish bastard in bed the one time she dropped what he called her harsh no-sex-until-we're-serious mandate and allowed him to take her to his apartment. Bastard.
His puzzled expression at the thought that she might also want to have an orgasm was bad enough. His laughter soon afterward when she requested he go down on her had made it clear she needed to break up with him. And so she did. But finding another man to date, let alone fulfill her on this special day, was the more difficult prospect. Lynda hadn't had any luck in the past few months.
Were there any sexually generous men out there? Yes. There were. She found an ingenious way to accomplish her goal. In order to achieve her birthday wish, she'd set up the perfect situation. She decided to simply pay for it.
There would be no awkward dates wasted on any man only to find out the guy was a letch, snob or bastard. Or worst of all, a clingy, sniveling, hanger-on unwilling to put forth any effort in the relationship whether it be financial or emotional.
Discount shoppers unite, she wasn't paying for dinner any more unless hot sex accompanied the main meal. Why she hadn't thought of this idea earlier?
The phone rang and jarred her sharply from her well thought out reverie of "no wimpy men in her future" directive. Lynda waltzed to the phone, but didn't pick it up or even bother to check whom it was. She simply unplugged the phone in the bedroom. It continued to ring from the kitchen extension, so she unplugged that phone, too. Her special date would be here any minute and she certainly didn't want any foolish interruptions tonight of all nights.
The sudden knock at the door sent her heart into high-speed, kamikaze-pounding mode. He was here!
"Coming," she called.
Well, truthfully she wasn't coming yet but planned to spend the rest of the night doing just that. Giggling at her little pun, Lynda crossed the room to open the door and begin her well-earned, long-sought fantasy date.
