Kasie Fitzgerald’s best friend, Simone, takes her to Vegas for one last fling before she ties the knot. Kasie feels out of place in the tight red “bandage dress” that Simone lends her, but she meets a mysterious stranger who gives her a night of unforgettable pleasure. “This man, he’s not like the man who raked my body with his eyes, all conceit and sleaze. This man isn’t pushing his agenda on me. He’s drawing out mine; reading my movements, my smiles, the quick path of my eyes. Tonight I’m the girl who is going to sleep with a stranger.” But what about her fiance Dave. “This isn’t the woman I’m supposed to be.” Or is it?
All I can say is hot, hot, hot!!! An erotic ride where Kasie battles with her desires and weaknesses which leaves you breathless and only makes it worse with the cliffhanger at the end. Can’t wait to get my hands on Part 2.
Thank you for Ms. Davis, Simon and Schuster and NetGalley for giving me this opportunity review this very hot book.
The story between Ana and Kane is nothing new. She is the naïve 24-year-old who is looking for love and happiness and he is the strong silent Native Indian type intrigued by her charms.
I felt the writing was hurriedly put together and it had more sex scenes than actual character-building content. Don’t get me wrong, I like the sex scenes, but I wanted balance within the story. Seeing Ana grow more intellectually and socially was helpful, but Kane seemed to stay the same and in my experience those kind of relationships can end in resentment and disappointment.
This was a quick read; but, unfortunately, this was not one of my favorites and I was hoping for much more.
Thank you to Abby Wood, Carina Press and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
Books with transitions between times is a difficult feat to keep both periods interesting and I found this book fell short. It is set in 19th century London and present day Boston. I preferred the historical transition about Ophelia, a woman who did not want to be ruled by a man and became a courtesan to take charge of her own life. However, the story about Piper, a museum curator who finds out about Ophelia’s secret life, was not as interesting to me.
The book is definitely erotic and intriguing and I did like that aspect of the book. I just think the present day piece could have been left out. I did read the book in one sitting and recommend it to people who like romantic mysteries and hot, hot sex scenes.
Thanks to LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
