Originally published under the title Stud Unleashed: Barry.
By All Means, Unleash The Stud!!!
Kylie Gilmore’s newest addition to the Clover Park gang may be the hottest yet. In the prequel and this novel, we get reacquainted with Barry Furnukle, he of the dancing cow we met in the previous novel, Bad Taste in Men. Who knew what hotness was lurking just below his geeky surface? Certainly not Amber Lewis, his pink-haired, bad-boy lovin’ next door neighbor. As far as Amber is concerned, Barry is “just friends” material: perfect for watching cheesy zombie movies with, but definitely not for dating. Barry, however, is nothing if not persistent. He pulls out all the stops to prove he’s every bit as exciting as those biker types Amber seems drawn to. Hey, none of them became a pirate for her, did they?
Gilmore once again pulls the reader in with two wonderfully relatable lead characters, and then ramps up the sexual heat between them until it’s just about necessary to fan yourself. Further, she surrounds them with a vibrant supporting cast chock full of hilarious antics as well as a few surprises. In fact, for me, the supporting casts Ms. Gilmore creates in her novels is as big a draw as her protagonists. There are no boring, cookie-cutter characters to be found in Clover Park.
And to think, Barry is just the first stud she’s unleashing for us. I can’t wait to meet the rest.
Sweet guys do win!
Geeks can stud out, Barry is a gem (his mother always told him). When he meets Amber he just knows he could be with her, and it's been 15 months, two weeks and 1 day since he's had sex. Loved this well written, funny, heart warming story.
Sweet and Funny
A sweet lovable and sometimes funny story of an average guy finding his inner confidence and getting the woman of his dreams with some blunders along the way! I loved the peek into his brain and his inner monologues to himself! So funny!
