This is the first romantic erotica I’ve read that I actually liked. In fact, I downright loved it. The beginning was really slow. I read some and then put it down for a long time, then went back to it because I was hoping for something sexy. I got that plus a sweet love story that surprised me. I tend to steer clear of romantic erotica because I usually find it a bit lacking in feeling. But this book was full of feeling. The romance was so sweet and lovely. It being erotica I also got an element I’m not used to…an actual risk that there might not be a happily ever after. I won’t spoil the ending, but that risk made it a lot more intense to read.
The BDSM in this book was really tame. For me that’s a good thing. I’m not that into it, but if I’m reading a good love story, I can enjoy some aspects of it. I felt there was more of a focus on their feelings and acceptance as opposed to being focused on the actual kink. Because of that, there was a great mix of romantic sex and kinky sex. Even kinky sex that managed to be romantic. And the sex is so damn hot. Well developed, great emotional aspects, very explicit. It will make your panties disintegrate.
I wish this author had more full length novels. I don’t care much for novellas because I don’t think there is enough time to develop all the feelings I want to feel in a romance. But I enjoyed this book so much I’ll definitely be giving them a try.
