We hope you enjoy her review of Animate Me by Ruth Clampett
For years shy animator Nathan has carried a torch for Brooke, the beautiful and dynamic Director of Development at their animation studio, even creating B-Girl, a comic-book heroine in her likeness. When a new project throws the two of them together, lovestruck Nathan finally seizes his moment – only to find Arnauld, head of the animation studio, claiming exclusive rights to Brooke’s affections.But Nathan, it turns out, is not giving up on his dreams so easily. With inspired determination, he sets out to be the super hero of wooing his girl. Threatened by his persistence, Arnauld plays dirty – only to spark an uprising at the studio that unleashes the sort of havoc only a building full of frustrated animators can create. While Nathan pulls out all the stops to win his B-girl, Brooke has to choose. Should she pursue the sparkling career that has taken her years to build…or follow her heart?Contains sexy scenes-Recommended for 18+
She smiles and grabs the hem and starts to slowly pull it upward. Her torso is just as glorious as her back, creamy dreamy smooth. My fingers itch to glide over every plain and valley of her body. But when the shirt finally peels away from her chest, my heart stops. Mojo is clearly on crack because these are the most exquisitely beautiful, lusciously plump, bewitchingly bodacious breasts I’ve ever seen.
“Oh, my.” I state weakly. The sight of her without her shirt completely overwhelms me, and I’m rapidly losing my super powers. I’m now a mere mortal in the presence of perfection.
“That’s it? After all that build up?…Just an ‘Oh, my’?”
Has she not noticed that my eyes are bugging out of my head and I’m swallowing every ten seconds to control my salivating?
“Can we take this off?” I whisper, weakly pointing to her bra.
She smiles. “You want to help?”
I nod and as she reaches around to unhook the back, I gently slide the straps off her shoulders. She waits patiently for me, and my trembling fingers slide under that part in the middle that brings the two worlds together. I pull until the pale blue symphony of lace and straps falls away from her.
I can sense that she’s fighting shyness, a temptation to fold into herself. But she stays strong and sits tall, with her shoulders pulled back.
“Oh, Jesus,” I moan. “Oh my God.” Evidently I’ve suddenly found religion.
I love this book!!! Lisa from PFMTBB recommended this book and since we like similar books, I decided to read it.
As soon as I started I knew I would like it. Nathan is amazing. He is a different lead male. He is so awkward at first, I could relate to that feeling and I like that he keeps trying to win the girl’s heart. I love every scene they are together. You can see they are falling for each other as time goes by.
It is refreshing to read about a sweet and nerdy man. He is amazing with her. He liked her from afar for a long time and when they start to hang out they find out they have a lot in common. They turn out to be a cute, funny and sexy couple.
The idea of animations throughout the story is great. I love all of them and it is a lovely touch so we can experience their jobs more closely. One of my favorite scene/drawing is when she asks him to read his little paper. That scene represents them so well. I can totally picture him searching how to woo her and freaking out about it but her not caring at all.
If you are looking for an enjoyable and entertaining read, I would definitely recommend this book. It has a cute and sexy romance, a lovely family, awesome friends and a little drama. It is a great adult romantic comedy.
