Reviews – Saturday Night Special

It’s reviews day and today’s featured book is Saturday Night Special. I can say without a doubt I had more fun writing this book than any other to date. It was my first no-holds-barred attempt at romantic comedy. I was trying to channel Janet Evanovich the entire time I wrote it! Needless to say, I was worried come review time. There’s a very thin line between funny and obnoxious and sometimes it’s hard to tell if you’ve crossed it or not! I’m relieved to say, the reviews were very positive and kind–phew!

From Whipped Cream Reviews:

Holly said “After reading this book, and those before it, I am ready to declare Mari Carr as Queen of the Hot and Sexy Romantic Comedy genre. Best Book!” LOVED THAT LINE. 🙂

From The Romance Studio:

Maura said “The plot had me laughing out loud at times and was pretty emotional at others. The love scenes were exceptionally hot. I really enjoyed this story of how two best friends become so much more. 4.5 Hearts.”

From Black Raven’s Reviews:

Kathy said, “Buckle your seat belt, sit back, and enjoy the ride. Saturday Night Special by Mari Carr is a light-hearted, fun, super sexy novel, and you will love it as much I did. Five Ravens.”

From Night Owl Reviews:

Terri says, “Okay……humor, love, sex shops, seed bars, Wayne Newton look alikes, hookers…..what more could you ask for in a Las Vegas experience. It’s all in this book. It will keep you reading and ignoring everything around you. This may be Ms Carr’s best book in this series yet! TOP PICK!”

From Happily Ever After Reviews:

Clare says, “Carr’s writing is fast-paced and full of wit. I could not put Saturday Night Special down. This was the first novel in the Wild Irish series I read, but it is not the first in the series. I cannot wait to read the rest of them. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for hot story from a writer with a sense of humor and an unerring talent for character and pacing. 5 Tea Cups!”

From Dark Divas Reviews:

Deb says, “I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard reading an erotic story. Saturday Night Special sure gave me that and more. Five Divas and a Recommended Read!”

From The Romance Readers Connection

Jeri says, “Filled with raucous adventure, funny characters, and a very hot romance between Aaron and Riley, readers of the previous books will not be disappointed in this story.  What I like the most about the novels is their consistency and the stand-alone quality of each book.” 

From Fallen Angel Reviews:

Lynn says, “At this point Ms. Carr’s story takes on an almost Shakespearean farce feel to it, complete with two strippers who despise each other, one infatuated taxi driver/Wayne Newton wannabe, one enraged pregnant wife, one clueless cheating husband and of course Riley who is leaning that her “mild mannered” new spouse is a sexual dominant who has more kinky tricks up his sleeve than a Vegas black jack dealer has cards. Five Angel and Recommended Read!”

From JERR:

Marc says, “I adore Riley. She is that crazy friend that tells stories and leaves the listener thinking, “That never happens to me”. 4.5 Stars.
