Carly Neal is furious that she has just been made part of a wager without her approval. Yet she does need to pass her Human Anatomy exam in order to graduate, and one dumb-ass professor isn’t going to get in her way. The wager between Brock Larson and the professor that Brock can tutor Carly and she will get A’s on both the remaining test doesn’t sit well with Carly. No matter how angry it makes her to be treated like this, she quickly realizes that Brock might be her best bet to obtain the A’s she needs. And it doesn’t hurt that Brock is easy on the eyes. A night after hours in the college library has Carly learning anatomy in one very delicious way.


Boning Up is a delightful romp and a quick sexy read. The story quickly develops the conflict, then proceeds to work on the rambunctiously sexy side of the story. It held my interest, and I found myself wishing for a bit more, though I must say that Ms. Alan does a fine job of telling a very entertaining tale in a few short pages.

I especially enjoyed Brock’s initial view of Carly. He sees the outside package and assumes many things about her only to be proven wrong . . . the wrapping on the package isn’t always an indication of what lies inside. For a short story, many emotions are encountered.

Carly is fun and easy to identify with. I found her outlook on things realistic. All it takes is a little inventiveness to get her scholastically motivated.

Boning Up is a fun book that will keep the reader interested with a smile on their face. I look forward to reading more by Ms. Alan.
