REVIEW/RELEASE BLITZ: This Radio Love by Misti Murphy


This is Doctor Love, your bad boy of the airwaves.
Think you know everything about sex, love, and dating?

You don’t.

That’s why you come to me. I’ve got your answers, Stalker Girl. I’ve got what you need. Right here, behind this zipper. You don’t want Mister Perfect. You want me. My voice, my filthy words tonguing your ear. And I’ve been dying to give it to you.
You’ve been all I can think about. And now that I know who you are, now that I know what you want, I’m going to make you fall for more than my voice on your radio. Think you can handle me?

I, Penny Morgan, career driven, self-confessed good girl, wouldn’t touch you if you were the last man on earth. So what if I’m addicted to calling you? So what if you caught me getting off to the sound of your voice?
I never date misogynistic pigs. I don’t fall for men who try to trick me. And the last thing I want is the world in on our secret. I know who you are now, Doctor Love, and if the public found out I was your Stalker Girl it would ruin us.

Penny Morgan is an independent woman, dedicated to her career; but her dating life has taken a bit of a nose dive, her quest for Mr. Perfect going nowhere. She has her standards and late night radio host Doctor Love doesn’t even begin to meet them despite how drawn she’s become to his raunchy show.

Finn Casey is a professional counselor by day, dirty talking shock jock radio host by night. Dating hasn’t been on his radar lately either but there’s one female caller who has his attention. And then he meets the very put together and professional Penny. He’s drawn to her, but no way could she approve of his alter ego. Or could she?
“‘What a prick!...I wouldn’t touch that jerk with a ten foot pole. Never, ever, ever.…I head for the bedroom. I need to change my panties.’”
Told via Penny and Finn’s first person POV, this is a cute and sexy, light-hearted romance about what happens when Penny finds Mr. Perfect in Doctor Love, and Finn finds the woman he wants in frequent caller, Stalker Girl. Of course, it’s not that easy, but there’s plenty of dirty talking and laugh out loud moment along the way.
“‘If the cow we’re with isn’t giving milk, we’ll just look up another dairy.”
Finn is an interesting and definitely entertaining character. He’s blunt and all man, hurling suggestive and hilariously obnoxious relationship advice on the air waves…
“But I want you to know, I’ve been jacking the donkey to fantasies of you.”
…while being a perfect gentleman in the real world. Yet I never found Finn hypocritical, nor did I find him stereotypical. There’s a lot of jerk manwhore heroes out there in the romance reading market and this would have been an easy story to make Finn one of them so I was so pleased when he didn’t turn out that way. It gave his character a lot more depth and development, showing how men can think one wild way but still behave in another more respectable manner.  And heck, a man who can look good in both a suit as well as jeans and a Guns-n-Roses t-shirt is a man after my heart any day! 😉

This is a fun spin on a love-hate relationship scenario. While dating as one persona, the pair engages in their own brand of foreplay on air under aliases.  
 “I can’t believe that he gets me so hot my brain explodes like a firecracker, sparkling with graphically dirty fantasies of his cock.”
I liked the theme of public vs. private self and how both Finn and Penny needed to merge the two to find true love.
“Is there a safe zone where she doesn’t reach inside me and wrap her slender fingers around my heart, but it still feels like it beats for her?”
I’ll admit I sort-of felt that realistically Finn at least should have caught on a little sooner, and I was a bit disappointed how Penny handled some things when she did. But in the end, I liked how things worked out and the duo fit well together.
 “‘I don’t think what we have here is the kind of thing you belittle with words like rammed.’”
This Radio Love is a feel-good read with no cheating and no OW/OM drama.

PS I really like this cover and the model is a great visual for Finn!😊

Misti Murphy is a sadistic b*tch who loves to emotionally torture fictional people. If she did that in real life she’d probably end up in prison or a psych ward so she prefers to create dirty talking alphas and the sexually frustrated women who fall into their beds. And if someone needs to be smacked upside the head before f*cking turns to love then that makes her very happy indeed. 
She’s a huge believer in flaws making us human, and that not everyone likes bacon. She’s also addicted to chocolate and scared of the effects of the coming shortage. She swears like a f*cking trooper, and thinks that graphic smuttiness should be as real in fiction as it is in real life. 
When she’s not writing she’s the perfect housewife and mother. Ha bloody ha! When she’s not writing she’s hiding in a cupboard with her kindle, scoffing chocolate, and stalking facebook.
