Beautiful prose is ironically rare in the romance/erotica genre.
If you are new to Calhoun's books, then I would suggest you read them in order. While they are stand alone stories with no cliffhangers, Calhoun treats the reader to a literary foreplay by giving a sneak peak of future characters. Fans of Calhoun's will have met Simone in previous books such as Breath on Embers and The List. This is such a lovely way to link novels, as opposed to the information dump often used in related books. i. e. Let me spent most of this novel telling you about the twelve alphas coming up in my next books. Check Calhoun's author website annecalhoun.com for her book list.
Simone is a sexy,strong female lead. She has created a wonderful life for herself and needs no rescuing. I love that Ryan is an average looking guy with a ton of charisma. While others are drawn to his Wall Street connections, that element is the least appealing part of him to Simone. Ryan is in an awkward situation that is described realistically and the fact that he is making the right decision doesn't make anything easier.
The chemistry is evident and the steam is plentiful. Calhoun is a master at the slow burn. There are a number if reasons why Irresistible is the perfect title for this story. This is one of those books you will savor and reread.
Simone owns a high end lingerie boutique, Ryan brings his woman of the moment in to buy her some underwear. Simone and Ryan immediately have a connection, but he's with another woman so Simone isn't going there.
That's where it got weird for me. They develop this sort of friendship, Ryan visits Simone, during which he relates his latest sexual encounter to Simone in full detail, when I say full detail I mean everything that happened. I wondered why he would do that to a woman he was obviously interested in, he did this more than once, I found him a bit sleazy to be honest. What was his motive? It made him a very unattractive prospect. I also found it very unrealistic that Simone would want to hear it. I personally found it a big turn off. After that I just couldn't imagine them together. Add to that for most of the story they're not together this just didn't do it for me.
This author knows how to write, the story flows very well. It's the way the story played out and the characters personalities that I didn't like, especially Ryan.
My first read by Anne Calhoun was Afternoon Delight just last year (i know i know ...where have I been hiding LOL) and I fell in love with her instantaneously! She has the ability to grab my attention with her compelling story-lines alongside her erotic scenes. They always make my heart race and tingle my senses! They are perfection. Her writing style is just plain beautiful and intimate and compelling!
Evening Storm was a five-star read for me because of everything that I just mentioned and because the story built itself up from page one and didn't stop until the very end. It was one of the most anticipatory reads I have read in quite some time.
Ryan Hamilton is a very competitive and driven business man. He is not your typical gorgeous alpha male, but the man had sexual appeal because he was charming and charismatic!
Simone Demarchelier is the perfect heroine! She is not only strong on the inside, but she is comfortable in her own skin and owns it! She's a master in her field and just plain sexy!
The two made for a combustible story!!
This story was very aptly named Evening Storm....for when Ryan and Simone begin to dance around one another (you'll understand that reference just as soon as you read this story and READ YOU MUST), a perfect storm begins to build. A storm with all the qualities to be combustible ... attraction, sensuality, friendship, growth and truth.
