Our hero, Tyson Malone, lives next door to a walking Harlequin Presents heroine, or so he believes. Maggie Jacobson, however, is not exactly a virginal marriage-obsessed wilting lily. At 29, she has decided that she has let too much of life pass her by. When her mother's death led to Maggie's epiphany, Maggie now decides to put her life in order. She will do what she wants in life, she will not be a doormat anymore, and she's going to have a great sex life. She thinks she may just find that great sex life with Tyson.
Sounds pretty decent, right? Actually, this story would have been a pretty good read. The sex scenes are hot, the chemistry between the main characters are sizzling, and the romance is pretty believable considerable the limitations of length faced by this novella. Maggie is a great heroine. Tyson is a far more familiar hero who is afraid of commitment, but still, he comes off like a sexy guy who needs some nudge to see some sense instead of a boring cliché.
The only thing is, the author also included a matchmaking ghost here. That ghost is very irritating. The problem here is that the story would have been fine without this irritating ghost. I don't know what the ghost is doing here. Perhaps the author has set out to deliberately get on my nerves or something.
Satisfy Me manages to do just that despite the ghost. All things considered, this is a pretty good job. Not bad at all, Ms Scott - not bad at all.
