Martina Jackson spent the last two years running from her past. Through the practice of Holistic Medicine she has meticulously transformed into a self-fulfilled woman, with one tiny exception…hot, steamy sex with no strings.
While she waits for the job offer of a lifetime, why not quench her sexual desires with an eager man willing to push her to the limit? What she doesn’t plan for is, the fling is exactly what she’s been running from.
Rob Taylor has been waiting his whole life to find the woman he can call forever. He didn’t expect to find her in his parents' living room wearing nothing but white lace and stockings. When he overhears her discussing her secret sexual fantasies, Rob decides to give her what she’s been missing.
As they play out each fantasy he connects with Martina on a deeper level, confirming what he knew the very first moment he heard her voice…that she is the one he’s been waiting for.
Content warning; explicit sex, ménage and the use of Holistic Medicine as foreplay.
This book has a lot of heart to it. At its core, it is the story of boy meets girl. In this case, its boy meets girl while she is modeling lingerie in his sister’s living room only boy doesn’t tell girl he saw her or heard her talking about her sexual fantasies.
Martina thinks Rob is too good to be true. He seems keen to do whatever she desires in bed, something that has been lacking in her life. But Martina is also a troubled character. She has seen a lot of pain in her life and built up a lot of walls to try to protect herself from being hurt by loss again. Rob isn’t fitting easily into her preconceived notions of how things should be.
I don’t want to give too much away but there is a moment in this book when one character hurts another one emotionally and it was such a real moment that it caused this reviewer actually pain in her stomach.
Needless to say, I found this to be a really well written book. My only complaint? Martina is definitely better developed as a character than Rob. I might have liked to have seen a little bit more of what made him tick, outside of Martina. But, I think if you like a really well written erotic romance, this is a story for you!
