Be Careful What You Kiss For by Jane Lynne Daniels

When a psychic gives Tensley the chance to erase her biggest regret and replay her life with the one who got away, who would have thought a simple “do-over” could go so terribly wrong—and feel so right? 

When Tensley Tanner-Starbrook gets the chance for one life “do-over” from a well-intentioned but bumbling psychic, she goes for it. But that change turns everything else upside down. Instead of a buttoned-up corporate executive, she’s now an entirely unbuttoned exotic dancer. And she’s face to…face with the one man she’s never been able to get over. 

Detective Max Hunter has come a long way from high-school bad boy, and with everything on the line, nothing can stop him…except seeing his first love dancing in the club he’s been assigned to investigate. Torn between getting her far away from the place and needing her help as an insider, he knows only two things for sure: Tensley’s stirring feelings he thought long ago buried, and a relationship with her would be career suicide. Yet, maybe, just maybe, this was a love meant to overcome the past.

Danielle's Review
Jane Lynne Daniels’s “Be Careful What You Kiss For” is a curious concept. If you’ve ever seen the episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” where Cordelia wishes (to a vengeance demon) that Buffy had never come to Sunnydale and it creates a whole alternate life for everyone in Sunnydale, it’s a similar idea. Or consider “Freaky Friday,” but with strippers! Ha! The story is very detailed and the timelines created during the alternate universes all seemed to align properly. I liked the extra story arcs with Tensley’s mom and her friend, Kate. I wish there had been more sexy time between Tensley and Max (maybe in an epilogue) – they had great chemistry during the bits of sexy candy that was included. 4 out of 5!
