Every Saturday night, best friends and neighbors Zada, Jen, Tish, and Alicia heat up their quaint little cul-de-sac with the infamous Housewives Fantasy Club. 
Everyone has a secret fantasy to share.
Some have better ones to hide.Imagine! Retired baseball star Jake "The Rake" Sims living here--in the flesh! Well, he won't find Alicia Greene an easy conquest (she does not do bad boys).
So what if his chiseled pecs and grand slam physique--displayed nightly in sexy underwear commercials--once made him her "most valuable" fantasy lover.
His wild lifestyle squelched that dream.
Now Jake swears he's reformed, Alicia's not buying it, and their matchmaking neighbors are doing their best to foil the couple's "good" intentions.
They may be on to something.
After one fabulous dinner, Jake takes Alicia in his arms and discovers how forbidden passion--more tempting and sweeter than dessert--can fulfill all her secret fantasies.

  •     What would you do if your celebrity crush suddenly moved into the neighborhood and was still as enticing as ever? Alicia is a divorcee who's sworn off men since discovering her wealthy husband with the pool boy. At first treated like a pariah by her suburban Chicago neighbors, she's now their friend and a fixture in their Housewives Fantasy Club.

Jake just wants to prove he can raise his estranged daughter now that he has been granted temporary custody, despite his evil former mother-in-law's machinations. A romance wouldn't be prudent.

Alicia and Jake are secretly having their own fantasy club which quickly becomes reality. Will Dani be able to share her new friend with her father?Halliday's romantic comedy streak continues with "Dinner First, Me Later?" revisiting the not so desperate housewives of Owl's Roost Road. Witty bantering, sizzling chemistry, and characters that remain consistent from novel to novel make Halliday a stand out.
  •     I admit I had passed by the book's predecessor, Your Bed or Mine, over and over again due to the title. I thought it would have too much sex in it and the title of this one turned me off as well, but due to the reviews- I decided to give it a try. It was WONDERFUL! It was all about relationships between friends, and a father reconnecting with his daughter. It was just perfect- not too mushy, not too sexy, just funny and perfect. I am online right now to order Your Bed or Mine and the other two older books by Candy Halliday. These sort of surprises makes me wonder what other excellent reads I have passed up. I know better than to judge a book by its cover, yet I almost did it again! Enjoy!!
