So this was another hot read from Lacey Alexander. Similar to the other two books I've read of hers, a woman blossoms sexually and a self-proclaimed bachelor ends up falling hard. And while it is somewhat following a formula, the sex is never boring or repetitive! Plus, she creates such likable characters. I loved Chris, how in awe he was of Carrie, how supportive he was of her exploration of herself. Carrie, given what had happened to her before the trip, was ultimately quite carefree about so much -- she just wanted to experience what she could while she could. Even Shay was kinda fun. It was also nice to see a peek of Liz (from French Quarter) in this one all happy with Jack. I guess I'll have to go back and read about what happened with Diana now (Carrie's other sister).
