What’s worse than having to watch your sister marry your ex fiancé? How about when that fiancé fires you from the family business?

Hyper-organized, event planner Jaya Trudeaux is used to doing things by the book and never making waves. It’s a strategy that’s served her well until she finds herself in failure alley with no fiancé, no job and her thirtieth birthday looming. Maybe it’s time to change her methods. Starting with an unlikely date to the wedding from hell.

The only thing that can tie carefree playboy, Alec Danthers down is his formidable step mother. When she calls him home to help find his wayward brother, he never imagines an uptight, list making, sass- talking woman would make him think about putting down roots.

Can Jaya put the lists down long enough to enjoy the ride that is Alec? Will Alec stop running long enough to recognize true love?

Warning: Sexy, sass talking women will make you laugh, cry and want a pair of killer footwear.

My review:

Sexy in Stilettos is the first book of Nana Malone what I’ve read. It is very easy to read and the novel itself is not very long, so it took me couple of hours from the beginning to an end. Sexy in Stilettos is well-written romance, where you can laugh a lot.

Regarding the plot:

Jaya has a difficult event to go to – her sister is marrying Jaya’s ex-fiancee. She does not exactly know what to do, because she has to go to the wedding, but really it is the last event she wants to join. Jaya find a date for the wedding. Alec is very different from Jaya, but they are drawn to each other.

The strong side of Sexy in Stilettos was the dialogue. It was funny, quirky and sometimes too much from Jaya’s side, but it did not feel awkward. The plot is not very complicated, but it has its surprises and it was well written.

Regarding the characters:

Jaya was likable, sassy and quite easy to relate to. There were times, when I was annoyed by that she talked too much, tried to organize everything and had difficulties of letting go of her over-planned life, but it fit to her character. When she meets Alec, she is confused by him. Alec is not looking for commitment, he likes to be his own, to have his freedom. Alec is not over-organized as Jaya and he is acting like a jerk in the beginning, but the more time goes by, the more they are attracted to each other.


Sexy in Stilettos was a fun read and it is a perfect summer read. It’s easy funny and has characters you can relate to. Definitely for romance lovers!

5 Flowers!
4 stars.

About the author:

Nana's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is. Though, until that ninja job comes through, you'll find her acting out scenes for hubby and puppy while catching up on her favorite reality television shows in sunny San Diego.
