From the large amount of free Kindle reads I've downloaded, I would say less than 10% are worth reading. When I find a gem among these duds, I count myself lucky. I found a true gem last week with Karen Erickson's Indulgent Pleasures. I adore this book so much that I have given it the KB, "I want to have babies with it", a label I don't use lightly. I've read Karen's work before. She has over twenty ebooks published and most of the ones I've read by her have been very short. I'd wondered, what if she wrote a full length novel. Would it be good? Well I can say Karen has exceeded all my expectations with Indulgent Pleasures. This is one hot erotic contemporary romance you must get your hands on. It's well written, sexy and with two amazing main characters. The hero, Justin Hawkins, a retired baseball player who has a reputation as a bad boy is a woman's dream come true. The heroine, Stephanie Shaw is a woman we can all sympathize with. Stephanie thinks she's lacking in looks and overall sensuality because she feels she's just average. But the moment she bumps into, or rather stumbles into Justin's arms during a party, he thinks she's one of the most gorgeous women he's ever met because of her sparkling personality and overall peppy nature. And what's even better, a hot interlude in a limo between these two, leads to even more hot sexy times, which in turns leads to love. I didn't want this book to end because I was having such a fun time reading it.

Stephanie is a writer for San Francisco's City Magazine who longs for her own column. She has her chance when her editor offers her an interesting assignment. Stephanie must find out a woman's top sexual fantasies.

4 1/2 stars.
"Indulgent Pleasures" by Karen Erickson is a sensual modern romance story that tells of the blossoming relationship between a magazine writer, Stephanie Shaw, and a reluctantly retired baseball player, Justin Hawkins. Stephanie has an assignment to write about female sexual fantasies and a serendipitous encounter with the charismatic athlete encourages her to start working through the list of fantasies that she is researching. The mutual attraction propels them into a intense and carnal relationship but neither is quite sure what to do about the insecurities that make them hide critical information from one another. The gradual increase in sexual exploits make it easier for Stephanie to write her articles but enhances the depth of their attraction enough for each to contemplate a more serious relationship. The fear of betrayal that each harbors makes it difficult to reveal their innermost concerns until matters come to the inevitable critical point and each must decide whether actions speak louder than words.

The story is a bit predictable, media-shy athlete unknowingly gets involved with a member of the media who is documenting their exploits to sell magazines. A train wreck waiting to happen. Fortunately, Ms Erickson is talented at depicting sensuous passionate encounters and engaging characters which elevate the story into a refreshing romance with plenty of spice. The gradual ratcheting up of the love story in counterpoint to the frenzied intimate encounters provides provides a romantic and entertaining tale.

Who doesn't love it when a hot guy literally saves you from falling flat? The sparks fly when Stephanie and Justin meet for the first time. One hot fantasy later and neither of them could wait for more. But Stephanie is hiding a secret. She wants to tell but is afraid Justin will walk away. Having all her fantasies (and some she never even thought of) come to life only to walk away is more than she can take. Unfortunately secrets can't be kept forever; eventually the truth always comes out.

I really enjoyed this story. It was a great read with lots of steamy sex in fun places and the perfect amount of conflict and romance. I actually have my fingers crossed for a few more stories after this one!

I always enjoy Karen's books, so it's really no surprise that I liked this one as well.

Stephanie works at a magazine and was just propositioned to write a column about her sexcapades. The first guy she comes across is mega hot, mega loaded, former baseball player Justin.

Their sexual chemistry is HOT, and you can definitely feel it through the pages. Things are going along smoothly as they hook up on a regular basis, they can't seem to get enough of each other. Justin is not the type of guy who likes relationships and of course Stephanie doesn't think she is good enough for him. Then along come the emotional attachments...

Justin wants to take things beyond just the hot steamy sex, Stephanie is hesitant at first because she has been the little secret about what she really does for a living. She wants to tell him, but is afraid of the outcome.

So she decides she'll write on last column, but too little, too late. She gets stabbed in the back from her employer. And everything backfires.

When Justin learns the news, tells her to get out, and then later learns the real truth, he pulls out all the stops to get Stephanie back.

I think that if Justin wasn't a jock, I may not have liked him as much as I did. I'm a recovering jock addict, you know, as in sporty guys...So this was definitely to his advantage. I loved his dirty talk and his mild alfa attitude. I loved how he was sweet with Stephanie too.

"Bend over baby. Let me see your pretty little ass" - uhm...OK!
"Yeah baby, ride me. Make me come." - Don't worry Justin, I will. Oh I mean, Stephanie will!
"I want you to sit on my face" - Incoming!
