Synopsis: For Olivia Sullivan, love is more a four letter curse word than a sentiment. Growing up as the daughter of a small town mortician, guys didn’t warm to the fact there were dead people in her house. At thirty, taking over the family business and becoming the town Coroner helped to cement her undateable status. Of course her past sex history didn’t help matters either. Attempt number one with her first love ended barely before it got started with a horrific latex allergy hospitalization. Attempt number two had him coming and then going with an undiagnosed heart condition. For the past three years, Olivia has closed up shop for fear of what might happen next in the bedroom. After being forced to go single to her mother’s lingerie shower, Olivia stumbles into an out of town bar with one intention: find an able bodied stud to go home with to end her losing sex streak. Enter Holden Caulfield Mains aka Catcher, who earned his nickname not just from the book he was named for, but for the fact he was sure to catch the attention any woman who came within a five mile radius. Waking up after a night of the most mind blowing sex she could have ever imagined, a horrified Olivia runs away thinking she’s left Catcher behind. When Olivia’s small town is wracked by its first murder, she never could have imagined her one night stand would reappear in the form of the GBI’s lead investigator. To her mortification, Catcher isn’t ready to let go of their sizzling chemistry, and he doesn’t understand the meaning of no. As things start to heat up between them, the body count starts to rise, and they’re led on a wild goose chase from backwoods mountain Nudist Colonies to altercations with the Dixie Mafia. Can Olivia and Catcher survive to solve the murder while also not succumbing to their explosive passion?

Olivia has had some really bad luck in the man department, really really bad luck! On top of her bad luck, being a female mortician in a very small town means her love life at the age of 30 is non-existent. She meets Catcher Mains and the chemistry between the two is instantaneous.
I had so many giggles whilst reading this book, there's definitely a great comedy aspect to Drop Dead Sexy. Add to the comedy a great romance, hot sex and a little bit of a mystery all this makes Drop Dead Sexy a brilliantly entertaining read! I literally did not put this book down I was hooked from the very first page! I would love a Catcher Mains of my own- swoon!
Recommended to anyone who likes a good Romantic comedy, in fact even if you don't usually read rom com - give it a try you won't be disappointed! This was my first book by this author and I will definitely be reading more by her now! Five stars from me!
Sheesh!!! This was a fantastic book. Poor Olivia had one hell of a bad love streak. But when she got her man, she got one hell of a Drop Dead Sexy one.
This was such a hilarious book. I sure did love Olivia's grandma Pease. She was such a hoot with such spunk and spirt. She was so funny she had me in tears at times with laughter. Then you are introduced to Catcher. Oh, he is sex on a stick hot! There is mystery involved in this story.
I would definitely recommend this book. It was fast past and kept my attention. I had a hard time putting it down. The writing was done well and good character build. Looking forward to reading more of Katie Ashley's books.
