Tumble Dry by V.L. Locey

 Roxanne Jones has one day off this weekend. She does not want to spend it carrying her unmentionables to the nearby laundromat but Fate has different plans. When the washing machine in her apartment building dies mid-cycle, Roxanne has no choice but to finish her laundry across the street. Once inside the Tumble Dry launderette, she discovers that the dryers aren`t the only hot things to watch.

In walks a younger man wearing the only clean items left in his wardrobe: torn jeans, sandals, tattoos, sex appeal, and a few well-placed piercings. When the two lock gazes no amount of fabric softener can stop the sparks from flying. It doesn`t take long for Donovan King, an English major at the local college, to not only woo Roxanne, he manages to begin a steamy seduction that won`t end until both are well-tumbled.
How many laundry metaphors can be contained with into a 32 page short story?  Oh, you’ll be bathing in them by the end!
Roxanne didn’t want to have to go to the Laundromat.  No one wants to go to the Laundromat.  But fate had other plans.  When her machine breaks mid-cycle, fate steps in and leads her right in the path of Donovan King.  Tattooed, sexy and in his last pair of clean jeans, he’s irresistible…and he wants so much more than to just get his whites whiter…
Well, I thought this was a short but very fun read.  I mean, it’s just a book that is meant to be pure entertainment.  There are no lofty questions about life or your laundry as a metaphor for life; it’s just raw attraction between two people who meet at the Laundromat.  It was fun and funny, pretty hot to read and I say well worth the money!  I was entertained! Good characters that you get an intriguing glimpse of as well as a sexy guy in a nice pair of torn jeans.  Winning.  4 stars.
