For six months Kealea and Christopher have been lovers, while consensually enjoying multiple partners. For a while it worked for Kealea. She wanted no commitment, and she craved the excitement and thrill of being taken by each new lover. But it’s not enough. She wants forever with Christopher. How can she make him realize there’s so much more to be enjoyed than wild sex?
Christopher shares Kealea’s desires, but he’s not sure how to change what they have into what they both crave. What if everything changes? Sex has always been easy, but loving could unleash consequences neither of them can handle. What is he to do? When another man shows interest in Kealea, Christopher knows he must make a move, or lose the woman he loves…for good.
Be Warned: multiple partners, menage sex, anal sex, bondage, public exhibition.
Kealea and Christopher have an incredibly non-traditional view on the word relationship. While they enjoy each other, they are not exclusive and never intended to be. They both love sex and they like what they have, and while they get sex from multiple partners, they come back together to seek what they truly crave. However, Kealea has developed feelings for Christopher—feelings she’s sure he doesn’t return. Yet for as insanely jealous as Christopher becomes when he sees her with another man more than once, there might be something to this “love” thing after all.
I’m not sure if I’ll ever be off the fence when it comes to this novella. On one hand, the writing was solid and the dialogue flowed very well. On the other hand, for a story that strove to show two people that there was more to their relationship than sex, it left me wanting. They never explored anything beyond the physical, which left the reasons why Christopher loved Kealea woefully unexplored. What made her different? What made him love her? What made her love him? If they have more than sex, what is their definition of “more”? Instead, their mutual, however secret love for one another was a fact presented that the reader was supposed to accept. For people who weren’t looking for love, it needed to be clear why they found it in each other.
However, the sex scenes are absolutely smoking! This is definitely a book to read if you’re looking to be turned on.
