Review Tour Operation Date Escape by Lindsey Brooks

Operation: Date Escape
by Lindsey Brookes
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Kim Killion
Release Date: June 13, 2013

Since her divorce two years before, Kelsie Collins has been determined to guard her heart and steer clear of seemingly ‘perfect’ men. An easy task considering the kind of men her matchmaking mother and her best friend, Nanci, keeps setting her up with. She allows them to set her up, knowing their hearts are in the right place and that there is no risk of her letting any man close enough to hurt her again. Her growing experience in ways to slip out of those ‘dates from hell’ prompts her to start writing a bad date survival guide. One aptly titled - OPERATION: DATE ESCAPE. And it’s during one of those escapes that sexier than sin firefighter Cole Maxwell comes to her rescue.

Cole isn't sure what to think when the sexy redhead he’s just ‘rescued’ from a bad date informs him that he’s too ‘perfect’ to date. That’s a first. He’s had relationships end because the women couldn't handle the risks that go along with his chosen profession, but never because he’s too perfect.

When his crew gets called out to rescue someone who is stuck in a tree, Cole finds himself once again coming to Kelsie’s rescue. This time he’s not about to let her get away without agreeing to give him a chance, even holding her high heels hostage to make it happen. She finally gives in and things heat up between them like a 3-alarm fire. But there’s more than passion between them and Cole sets out to prove to Kelsie that he’s nowhere near ‘perfect’, but he is the ‘perfect’ man for her. Can he get past the wall she’s built up around her heart? Or will he end up being just another chapter in her book of men she ran from?

*Operation: Date Escape was a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart finalist as well as a finalist in the American Title III Competition put on by Romantic Times and Dorchester Publishing.*

The phone rang once...twice, and just as she was about to hang up out of habit he answered.





His husky voice oozed over her and she closed her eyes.  She had to stay strong.  Be firm.  Only not in the way she knew he could be.

“Stop thinking about that,” she immediately scolded herself.

“Thinking about what?”

She tugged at her bra, fumbling with its clasp to unhook it, but her fingers were being about as uncooperative as her tongue.  At least her thinking process was still intact.

“Have you ever tried to take a bra off yourself before?”

He chuckled.  “Can’t say that I have.”

“Well, let me tell you, men should have to wear these damn things every day and then we’d find out just how much you all appreciate them.”

“Are you all right?”

She dropped into a sitting position at the edge of her bed.  “Oh, no you don’t.  I’m not going to fall for that one.”

“What one?”

“You want me to say that I’m not alright.  That I think about you all the time.  That─”

“Do you?”

“What?”  What had she been saying?

“Think about me.  Have you been thinking about me, Kelsie?”

“Wouldn't you?” she asked.  “I mean if I were you and you were me wearing my bra, wouldn't you think of me?”

“I’m going to take a wild guess here, but have you been drinking?”

She fell back onto the mattress with a soft sigh.  “Just a little.  Nanci and I went out after work.  She had to buy my drinks because she tricked me into calling you tonight.  And you really need to stop changing the subject.”

He gave a husky chuckle.  “And that subject would be?”

She stretched her arms out above her head, twirling a curl between her fingers.  “Sex.”


“Just because you’re hot in the make that really hot in the sack and a nice guy to boot doesn't mean I should go out with you again.  In fact, it’s all the more reason I shouldn't.”

“I see.  So you’re looking for a not-so-nice guy to spend the rest of your life having really bad sex with.”

“Exactly.  Then I won’t have to worry about falling for him.”

“Like you are for me?”

“Yes.”  She scooted up the mattress to rest her head on her pillow.  “You’re really good at this breaking up stuff.”

“Not as good as you think.  I still intend to get you to go out with me again.”

Tabitha's Review

Fabulous read. This book will have you laughing your head off. In this book Kelsie is set up on numerous dates by her mom and her friend. Not only is going out with them she tries to escape at each event which puts her in some compromising situations. not wanting to fully give her heart away again as she was divorced a few years ago. She decides to use these dates as a way to get her first book out published. Never did she think that she might truly find a real man that is worth risking it all again. Cole is a firefighter and he is ready to hose down Kelsie when he first meets her. It seems that he appears and is her rescuing hero on every date. Can Kelsie give into the handsome firefighter and let her guard down or will she continue to hold onto her heart and never let it go? Looking forward to reading more about Nanci and her B.O.B. collection!

Until one of them begins to fall in love. Then all is fair in love and war. Caged is a sexy, fast-paced love story with a punch. Warning: Contains adult language and sexual content.

button excerpt

I toss my arms above my head and rock my hips to the movement. Warm hands wrap around my waist. I smile and look over my shoulder. It’s Tripp. He starts to grind with me, and I shake my ass against his pelvis. I can feel the hard erection in his pants and it sends a shiver up my spine. He’s huge, and I already know how ripped he is from all the time he spends shirtless at the gym. I’ll never be able to get these panties clean again. Cage slides into the space in front of me. My throat tightens and I lose my breath. I’m in the middle of a hot man sandwich. Cage’s hands skim over my sides and come to rest at my lower back, a fraction away from my ass. He’s so tall, I feel tiny and I have to crane my neck just to look up at him. Dark, hungry eyes are reflected back down at me. He’s still giving off that intense vibe, but at least he’s here with me. I wouldn’t want to dance with just Tripp. Tripp continues grinding behind me, and Cage grips my hips from the font. I’ve never danced with two guys at once like this before. My breasts press against the hard planes of Cage’s chest. He must be able to feel how hard my nipples are, just like I can feel the hot, heavy erections both men are sporting. It makes me want things I know I can’t have.

Grace King needs to save her catering business by all means necessary. Even if it means striking a deal with the hot estranged husband she walked out on, but can’t forget despite her best efforts.

Sebastian Zwane is baffled to discover he’s still legally bound to the woman who broke his heart. With a booming career and new offices to open, the last thing he needs is a scandal and for her to demand half of the empire he built after their separation.

The bargain that will get them both what they want is put to the test by their sizzling attraction—stronger than ever, in spite of their rocky past. When the deal is over, will they be able to walk away from each other?

Carmen Falcone learned at an early age that fantasizing about fictional characters beats doing math homework any day. Brazilian by birth and traveler by nature, she moved to Central Texas after college and met her broody Swiss husband—living proof that opposites attract. She found in writing her passion and the best excuse to avoid the healthy lifestyle everyone keeps bragging about. When she’s not lost in the word of romance, she enjoys spending time with her two kids, being walked by her three crazy pugs, reading, catching up with friends, and chatting with random people in the checkout line.

She loves to procrastinate, so please indulge her and drop her a line @ For more info, visit her website:
