This is my second book by this author, and this one was just as good as The Rebound List. The author writes heroes that are shy, insecure, or self conscious, and heroines that are forced to appear powerful and experienced despite what they felt inside. I found that really relatable. Lucy and Greg aren't used to relationships, and Lucy mentally dwelt on her insecurities often. Their emotional maturity level felt like they were in their low 20s rather than mid 30s. This book is very steamy with explicit love scenes. It's a novella length story, so the pair fall in insta-love, but that just leaves room for more steamy scenes!
The narration was well done, the book is set in England and the narrator speaks with a pleasant accent. She did a great job with the male and female character voices. I'll be listening to this one again for sure.
This whole story started when Lucy approached a man in a bar. Without even seeing his face! Form there, their lives entwine in ways that neither one of them thought possible after what should have been an arm's-length encounter.
This story was interesting because the actions of the characters were the reverse of the typical roles I have read. In other words, George was a little shy, self-conscious, etc., whereas Lucy was more bold.
I, personally, and without spoilers, found the conflict towards the end to be a little lacking, specifically George's reason for his actions. Aside from that, this was a good story and made me ponder, "What if she had never approached him in that bar? How different their lives would have been!"
***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
Hedonist Six has written business focused stories before, but this one is different. The characters evolve quickly through the very fast pace of the story. By the end of the story you can easily see how Lucy and George fulfill needs for each other that they had not even admitted to themselves. Their meeting is a chance encounter in a pub. It is happenstance that Lucy needs a project manager, while George has just been laid off.
If you want a quick read with a happily ever after, this one is a can't miss.
I loved the detail given to describing the sex, especially when the 1st orgasm isn't enough for the narrator. But when I got to the second sex scene, I had to stop and smile. Highlighted, waiting for me to enjoy again- "Love handles. How can something with such an enticing name be considered undesirable?"
I absolutely love their conversation in the middle of the night, when she startles awake and can't get back to sleep. The emotion given to the characters is entrancing. When he goes down on her until she' spent is great. Then the wonderful narrative connecting George and Lucy as people brings the story to a wonderful completion.
Hedonist six, takes you on a journey from the perspective of a wish, a want and a need. Are they all achieved. Maybe?
It is easy to fall into the trap of believing relationships happen by accident.
There has to be creative, albeit gentle, manipulation. From one side or the other.
Sometimes both of their needs are fulfilled. Often it can be neither.
This is a three part journey. Take it!
Even though I freely admit the erotic genre is not one I read often, I am glad I changed my mind.
You will be too. Read it for yourselves, you'll see what I mean.
