So in this book we meet Marin Rush. When the story begins, Marin is 18 and working in the sleep lab recording results. She meets Donovan West. He is a Teaching Assistant working on a new theory testing the effect of scripted erotic talk on women with arousal disorders. She overhears him recording his readings one night. Can you imagine overhearing a hot, sexy voice saying nasty erotic things that made your body respond with electric sensations throughout? Well she got to know Donovan a little better and then her life fell apart. Marin did the only thing she knew how to do, survive and put living first, pleasure last.
Donovan has his own baggage and never really deals with the past so it continues to haunt him. He can never run from it. He eventually learns that. No matter how much sex he has, how much he parties or who is on his arm, he can't hide from the dark dreadful truth of his past.
Then many years later, Marin and Donovan cross paths again but this time things are different. Without giving away any spoilers, this is where the book gets really good. The two must not only discover who they are, individually, finding their own way involves navigating with other people effected by their choices, namely Marin's brother Nathan. Marin works hard to make sure Nathan has what he needs and deserves while trying to make herself happy. Marin and Donovan realize what they need to do to survive, alone and with another person in their life.
Roni writes the characters as complicated beings that seem to have so many layers of problems but they are so simple and lovable, believable and human. Her story line is unique and fresh, a pleasure to read. The sex is just what it needs to be, beautiful and slow at times and hard, sweaty and passionate at others. Perfect mix. I fell in love with Marin and Nathan right away, Donovan, I was a little reserved about and rightly so. But by the end I did love him just as much as the others. The characters were good people, honest, truthful and respected by their piers in the book. Made me love them more. This book made me think about the characters outside of the book. I wondered, worried, thought about them and was curious to see what Roni had in store for them in the next chapter. They lived with me while I read it. That to me is a great book. When the characters take space in my brain and make me think about them, that tells me it's a good book!
The sex scenes were well paced and hot. And each one was different. Adding hide and seek to my bucket list. ;)
I hope we see more stories from this family of characters, that we get to revisit them again and again
P.S. I think I'm going to frame the quote "We do what we need to do to keep moving forward" or have it tattooed.
This is the first title by Roni that doesn't delve heavily into the BDSM style - she totally nailed it. The sexual tension will have you holding your breath, wanting to moan along with Marin & Donovan when...yeah. That.
A must read for anyone who love some spicy stories and believable characters you can't help but root for.
