Book Reviews! These are good for singles. Or people who aren't having sex.
Ladies. (And men.) All I can really say without ruining the GREATNESS that is this book is that you absolutely MUST have a towel handy. I am not even kidding you.
This was my first read by Lora Leigh but if her other works are anything like this she has now got herself a new, dedicated reader. I'm going to backstep just a minute before I talk about this book though. I love Linda Howard's romance novels. Even though most of the stories are cheesy and predictable, every once in awhile she NAILS a love scene. NAILS it. Nails it so well that I re-read the pages several times. I have several of her books but my two favorite, go-to Linda Howard books are Cry No More and All The Queen's Men. Both of these books have the ideal man for me- strong, in charge, brooding, violent streak, fabulous in bed, and ultimately- uncontrollably and undeniably in love with the lead chick. ATQM is my ultimate fav because hey- it has a black ops agent named John Medina. Yum. So I apparently like military. Unfortunately, Matt is mostly none of these things (there is one he is though...you take your guess ;) ) so I have to live vicariously through books.
Which brings me back to this one. The lead male? Navy SEAL. Hot. Muscular (even though that's not a huge turn on for me, for reading purposes I'm all about this guy), dominant, sexual, volatile, etc. YUM. This also is part of a series and I have to pick up the first one, but this?? Was fabulous. I can't even tell you how great this book is. The story line was good and the bonus is that I had NO CLUE what was going on. I'm still kind of in the dark because there's another story after this one.
The sex in this book is absolutely incredible. It is described so well that the things you play out in your head are better than any porno could ever be. The characters are all so well developed that you like them, even their faults are appealing. I have never in my life read a romance novel that made me want to jump my husband immediately. Unfortunately, I'm reading while he's sleeping and waking him up makes him crabby. Plus I'm totally mingling with Aunt Flo this week and yeah. It's just not a good plan.
I very highly recommend this book if you like sex, or if you like romance novels. Or if you're currently not having sex and would like to- GREAT starter. I'm just saying.
