Review: Hands On Series by Cathryn Fox

Hands On Series by Cathryn Fox

Hands On (Book #1): When hot as hell Danielle Lang showed up and asked me to teach her about sex, I thought I was hallucinating. Turns out the beautiful psychologist needed an extra bit of schooling in all things sexual so she could teach a class.  I’m always up for helping a friend. I mean, it’s the least I can do. What I wasn’t expecting is for her to turn the tables and teach me a few things. Only this short-term promise of two weeks in her bed is going by a little too quickly. Not that I’m thinking forever or anything.  I’ve got a football career to get back to. And she doesn’t want to be a part of my world. There’s no way we can be together—so I’m going to make sure I enjoy every sexy second….

Body Contact (Book #2): Asking pro football player Jack Rider to teach me everything he knows about sex might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I’m not so sure I can handle a guy like him. I thought he’d just straight up do me, ridding me of my pesky virginity sooner rather than later. But no, he had his own ideas about bringing me up to speed on sex. His two weeks of slow seduction might just be the death of me, but since he’s the one in charge, I have to play the game his way. Not that I’m not enjoying it. I am. Who wouldn’t, right? I guess I just can’t help but wonder how I’ll ever let another man touch me after him.

Full Exposure (Book #3): I’ve just had the best two weeks of my life! Who’d have guessed that a big part of my rehab would involve giving a gorgeous psychologist private lessons in sex? The problem? I’m hooked. I want more and that wasn’t part of the deal. But I have a job to go back to, and she’s already pushing me away. So what the hell am I going to do? Still, as a quarterback, I know some things need a playbook and I’m used to winning. So before I walk away from this incredible thing between us, I’m going to use every strategy I know to convince her that the only hands she needs are mine…

My Series Review:

It’s not every day you walk into your local coffee shop and a few hours later your high school crush is asking you over for a booty call. 

Jack Rider has a reputation as being a lady’s man, and why shouldn’t he?  He’s panty dropping sexy and an accomplished pro football player.  If the press is to be believed, he’s bedded a good portion of the women in the US and makes no apologies for having done so.  Oh, Jack’s had his fun, to be sure, but when he’s unexpectedly and surprisingly approached by his old high school crush, Danielle Lang, he starts to think his definition of fun might be a tad bit off the mark.

Danielle Lang has a shiny new advanced degree, a new job that starts soon, and a deep-seated fear of what that job entails.  In theory, Danielle understands the psychology of sex but teaching a classroom full of college freshmen about something she has zero practical knowledge of, is terrifying.  Yeah, Danielle is a newly licensed counselor about to teach a class on sex and she’s a virgin.  Between all the studying, the extra studying, and the lack of a social life, Danielle didn’t have much time for dating and she’s not quite the one-stand type.  When her best-friend comes up with a plan to contract a sexual partner for a couple weeks, Danielle thinks the idea is insane, and then, Jack Rider walks back into her life. 

Jack can’t believe his luck.  Danielle is intelligent, kind, sexy as hell, and more than willing to let Jack teach her everything he knows.  Danielle expects the lessons to be short, somewhat clinical, and to the point, but Jack turns out to be a patient man with more to offer than just a hot body.  He’s a dirty talker with a vivid imagination and more than a little interest in Danielle’s education.  While the two agreed to two weeks and nothing more, turns out, each is far more than the other bargained for.  Not wanting to look a total schmuck, both Jack and Danielle keep their true feelings to themselves until it is damn-near too late.

The Bottom Line:  The Hands On series is so much more than just a series of hot, sweaty sex scenes!!  Don’t get me wrong, there’s A LOT of hot, sweaty sex scenes but they aren’t gratuitous at all.  There’s a real story mixed in here and I quite liked both Danielle and Jack.  They get to know each other so well in such a short amount of time and it is in more than just a sexual manner.  Each brings out the best in the other which makes the eventual HEA so very, very sweet!!  If you’re looking for a super-quick, sexy read, I am all about recommending Cathryn Fox’s Hands On series.
