Security guard James Tannen has been lusting after art history professor Melissa Dwyer since he sat in on her class three years ago. She crashes a private art unveiling at his employer’s house—then costs him his job by stealing a previously stolen priceless painting. She’ll do anything to keep the painting for herself—and James will do anything to get Melissa into his bed.
They agree that if she spends the weekend with him, he won’t tell a soul about her stolen masterpiece. It’s blackmail, but it’s also the perfect excuse for Melissa to get to know James. He takes a few of her erotic books for research, even though she’s never tried any of the risqué sexual techniques she reads about and masturbates to. Bondage. Nipple clamps. Butt plugs. Spanking.
If James is using her personal book collection as a script for their weekend together, Melissa knows she’s in for a wild ride!
Clare C’s Review
This was a cute story that moved extremely fast. Melissa isn’t really an art thief, but James does catch her taking the painting. As a security guard, he loses his job over the incident, but the revenge he exacts from Melissa is consensual.
Many of the scenes were quick, though the author does slow down a little for the erotic ones. If you are a person who likes a story with fewer narrative details, then you’ll love this story. I liked the plot and the writing, but I did wish for more emotional insight into the characters. Overall, it was an enjoyable read.
