Kayla Martin has invented a sexual aid which she hopes will take the sex toy industry by storm. It makes perfect sense to share her invention with her best friend and downstairs neighbor Dylan Thompson and request that he help her test the device. Only Dylan isn’t as enthusiastic about her newest creation and flat out refuses to test it out.

Dylan is convinced that Kayla has finally lost her mind. There is no way he’s going to use her sex toy for men on himself. Even if he was willing to consider trying it, he’s seen more than one of her modified creations go haywire and there is no way he’s going to risk permanent damage to any part of his anatomy.

It was Dylan and Kayla’s late night phone calls that always end up full of sexual connotations that gave Kayla the idea for The Walnut Wand. Dylan loves Kayla’s voice and relishes their phone calls, even when she’s complaining about her failed dates with yet another loser. After getting off the phone with Dylan, Kayla begins thinking about masturbation which then leads her to doing online research where she learns more about what men enjoy sexually. She really thinks that she has discovered an untapped market and her idea could be the next great thing to hit the sex toy industry. How is she going to get test subjects though if her best friend won’t even give it a chance? The next time Dylan sees or talks with Kayla is at their monthly poker game. She uses her breasts to her advantage and ends up winning the game but the high stakes game is just beginning. One hand, winner takes all - if Kayla wins, Dylan has to be her test subject; if Dylan wins, he’ll finally get a phone call to end the way he wants - with both of them completely satisfied.

CALL ME is the first book in Lena Matthews JOKERS WILD series and it starts it off with a resounding bang! Kayla is a character whom you just can’t help but adore. She’s a bit absent-minded, wacky, determined, and completely loveable. Dylan’s personality compliments her beautifully. He’s level-headed, focused and much to his own surprise, head over heels in love with Kayla. I couldn’t help but laugh as I imagined the horror on his face when Kayla casually mentions the nature of her invention and how she wants him to try it out. This story goes far beyond just trying to get him to try out the toy, it really delves into their friendship and the changes that occur between them as they become lovers. Let’s face it the sex scenes are just too hot not to pick up a copy and read it for yourself. I could feel my face heating up just reading them.

The next book in this series, THREE NIGHTS is also already available and there will be another one called STRIPPED BARE at some time in the future. These are wonderful stories that I’ve genuinely enjoyed! Wonderfully done Ms. Matthews! I look forward to many more of your tales in the future.
