    Hilarious & Suspenseful Must Read

    I love all of Lili's books that I have read to date and this one is no different. Not only is it sexy but its also hilarious, and gives you drama in parts and some suspense. The characters banter back and forth had me almost falling off my couch laughing so hard. Aiden (Curve) is a grizzly of a man (not even joking) who fell in love with a girl during college. But being 20 some years old hes was just a dumb boy and let the best thing to ever happen to him get away. Cat (Panties) has loved Curve just as long but in college they only knew the nicknames for one another of Curve & Panties. I loved how Lili had it pretty much all in Aidens POV and going back in time to the college days and the notes and texts they sent back and forth to give you a better understanding of them now and how they were back then. I'm so ready to see what Lili does for Shane's story. That girl is a firecracker and says whatever comes to her mind.

    Hello You Rascal

    Lili Valente is a brilliant story teller and once again she has shined and outdone herself in Spectacular Rascal. She pulls you in from the very first word to the very last. As a reader you feel the highs and lows of each character because you feel as if you are that character. I LOVED the humor, sexiness, and sweetness of Aiden and Cat's relationship. Aiden the sexy, tattooed, hottie may have the look of a tough bad boy, but really he is anything but. Eleven years ago he chose his career over a chance with Cat. Aiden and Cat were teammates of the Dashers. They became the best of friends, a friendship that bloomed through secret notes and texts. Cat always held a torch for Aiden, two years her senior, but never acted upon it until the night before he left to study the art of tattooing. Cat wanted Aiden to be her first, someone she trusted and leaned on during the good and bad. However Aiden chose to leave, but always wondered what could have been. Fast forward 11 years. What a surprise it was for Aiden to find that the girl he thought about often, his once best friend, turns out to be his next client. Ready to end their contract before it even began because of their past, Aiden finds himself stuck in limbo when he learns that Cat's ex is part of the mob and he is willing to do whatever needs to be done to get Cat back. Done deal! He can't let her down. So Aiden does everything in his power to protect and keep her safe, while making sure her ex knows that Cat has moved on. The more time Cat and Aiden spend together, the deeper they start to fall for each other. Although danger lurks all around, Aiden and Cat tune out the world and enjoy each others bodies, experiencing some mind blowing sex. Soon Aiden questions if maybe just maybe the girl he let get away 11 years ago just might be his match in heaven. Will Aiden and Cat have their second chance in love? Can AIden keep Cat safe and out of the arms of her stalking, crazy mobster ex? What I really enjoyed were the flashback notes and texts between Cat and Aiden. They were flirty, cute, sincere, therapeutic and filled with lots of banter and humor. I also loved that the story was written in Aiden's POV, and the hysterical rituals of the Dashers. Thank you Lili Valente for writing one of my top reads for the summer.

    Clever, witty & hysterical!

    Such a clever, witty & funny story! Part of the Magnificent Bastard series but can be read as a standalone. Aiden Knight is best friend with Sebastian Prince who runs the Magnificent Bastard, MB Consulting, dedicated to help women get even. Aiden joins his company to help him raise some funds for his studio. His first assignment, unbeknownst to him, is with a woman named Beth Jones, aka Catherine (Cat) Jones, the woman he walked away from after college eleven years ago. He never forgot her. The job was to help Beth get rid of her mafia boyfriend ends up being a second chance for Aiden & Cat. The characters seem real, their quirky, they struggle, make mistakes & drunk texts, nothing is more real than drunk texting. LOL Fall in love with Aiden & Cat & hopefully the author can give us some more of them with Bash & Penny all working together on an assignment.

    Lili Valente has done it again!

    Once again, Lili Valente has written a magnificently entertaining story filled with humor, passion and a bit of suspense proving her grand ability to draw me into the lives of her characters and becoming one with their universe. Spectacular Rascal returns us to world created in Ms. Valente’s novel, Magnificent Bastard, but this time reintroducing us to Aiden whom we met before. Though Aiden’s passion it running his tattoo business, his best friend and owner of Magnificent Bastard Consulting, has convinced him to work for him as well. But unlike Bash’s smooth, gorgeous businessman persona, Aiden is the complete opposite. His “bad boy” look comes complete with a beard and tattoo sleeves covering each arm. This façade is perfect for the hard-to-get-rid of ex’s, you know the ones that just don’t seem to get the hint that it’s over. But despite his gruff and tough-guy exterior, Aiden has the heart of a giant teddy bear. When he meets his new client, Cat, the memories of 11 years ago come flooding back. Aiden is determined to turn her away because of the potential conflict of interest; that is until he meets her ex who just happens to be in the mob and is about as scary and creepy as they come and clearly is not going to take Cat’s no for an answer. In spite of his hesitation, Aiden begins to feel a protectiveness for Cat and recognizes how much she needs his help. As they begin to spend more time together, their relationship moves beyond and simple business arrangement. When the connection from the past again resurfaces, it makes it nearly impossible for him to walk away. And as Cat remembers their past as well, she also wants more from Aiden. Will Aiden be able to keep Cat safe from her ex, and will they find comfort and love in each other’s arms, the kind of love which is meant to last a lifetime? Aiden is such a sweetheart making me absolutely swoon over and over again, and his “dirty talk” with Cat is oh-so-sexy. Cat is a bit on the crazy side which I must admit makes me love her as well and believe me when I say she can deliver the “dirty talk” as well as she can take it. The banter between these characters is hysterical making me chuckle and laugh out loud. Lili Valente at one point even breaks the fourth wall talking directly to the reader which is absolutely fantastic (not to mention the creatively amusing epilogue). I just couldn’t stop giggling it was so much fun. Spectacular Rascal is definitely a must, must read. If you haven’t given Lili Valente a chance in the past, this is certainly a great place to start. She has an absolutely undeniable knack for combining comedy with hot, sexy passion with elements of suspense and danger that will keep you coming back for more, more, more!

    CURVTACULAR

    Enjoyable read from beginning to end. Aidan is the resident bad boy or Spectacular Rascal for Magnificent Bastard Consulting (MBC), he's the type you don't bring home to Mama. He's tattooed, bearded and got what it takes to makes sure your ex leaves you alone. His first client just so happens to be someone he went to college with Catherine (Cat for short). Cat has a ex who won't leave her alone and she seeks out the services of MBC under an alias name. Unbeknownst to both of them, they have always had thing for each and in the midst of trying to protect her from her ex things shift. Soon him and Cat are banging each other left, right and sideways while falling for each other all over again. This journey was thoughtful, intriguing and a hilariously funny read that you definitely do not want to miss out on.
