Overall, a terrific story with a suspenseful plot to propel the story forward and a sexy romance between characters you're rooting for to the very end.
When more threats are delivered to her agent, the local police chief is called to check on her. When Gillian meets Sam, their immediate attraction to one another is so sweet. He's a great guy and they are so cute together.
With the threats continuing and even a death, will the police be able to catch the person after Gillian before he kills her, and other people she cares about?
This was an easy to read story about finding the perfect person to love. Thrown in was a little suspense and mystery.
[I don't read anything outside of m/f romance and don't want to even read small parts of anything outside of m/f. These parts didn't involve the hero or heroine and that is why I was able to finish. We should always be able to choose things that we want to read..this needed disclaimers badly because it also included biblical quotes. These parts made me feel very uncomfortable and if the blurb had said "menage and m/m erotica author" I'd have skipped. (hide spoiler)]
So when I found out this book had two things I really avoid in my romance I really felt let down.
If I could take out those parts I'd be raving over this book because it's really got a wonderful hero and a very quirky funny heroine. She was shy on the outside but kinky erotic author on the inside.
I adored the hero Sam and just wanted to kidnap him to a cabin in the mountains and play frisk me. Ok I digress. Really I did love 80% of this book. One small thing that really distracted me was that they author would use Sam as his name a few times then back to Taylor for a long time then Sam. That was confusing.
All in all I will give 3.5 stars to the sexy romance. I'd love to continue with this author if she writes a book that doesn't have the side issues that bothered me.
Even though Gillian is a generation older than I am, she's a writer. So I instantly had a connection with her. Her success as a writer was a great way to enter into the book. Add to that, that she writes erotic romance novels and I was sold.
Add to that mix, something like a sexy cop stripper who sticks in character, and you had one hell of a sizzling story. Now, this alone would have been a decent book, but then Scarlet adds in a wicked little thriller plot to spice things up even more.
I liked the thriller plot, though I feel that Gillian's initial reaction to it was not very realistic... that's a minor issue.
The sexy scenes with Sam Taylor, our resident studly police chief, were delightfully mixed. There was such a delicious mix of sweet and hotter-than-hell sexy. That made the scenes feel very realistic. The gentle exploration and the brain-mush high power rutting all mixed in together. I am verily impressed. The light BDSM was just that, light. Not straying into the realm of floggers and latex, but sticking well within in the realm of normal. Light bondage and sensory play, some dirty talk and fantasy play. All delightfully well written.
I also appreciated that when Gillian climaxed it wasn't all fireworks and sparklers, but something more real and accessible for the reader, sweet and sexy wrapped up together.
I would have liked a bit more substance to the supporting characters, and the antagonist. I picked up about half way through who it would be, but it wasn't super obvious.
Overall, I can safely say that I will be reading more of Scarlet's work and I only hope that Gillian and Sam make a come back.
