The book opens with Seth and Leila having been married for eight years. They were truly in love when they met in college, but she got pregnant after they used an expired condom. Leila was a virgin at the time and never really go to sow her wild oats. Now eight years later, she is still very much in love with her husband, but life has gotten boring and she never sees her husband.
Seth never regretted marrying Leila. He put his artistic dreams to bed and became a manager. When her rich parents accuse him of getting her pregnant for their money, he thumbs his nose at them and works hard to support his family. He wants to be the man who deserves Leila, working crazy hours in the hopes of making a down payment on their dream home.
When Seth hears his wife admit on a radio show that she almost cheated, he realizes their marriage is in deep trouble. So he orders his wife to give him three days to save it. Those three days, their wedding vows are on hold, so she may explore and find everything she desires. And he hopes letting her go free she will choose to come back to him.
Wow! There is a lot going on in this book that hits home with married couples where the spark has dimmed but the love is still there. Two people in a rut not really talking to each other and growing apart on what they want and need in their relationship. While I would have never taken my spouse to a sex resort and put away my vows to just learn if I will come back to where it began. There is a ménage scene that was so hot, but right afterwards the ramifications came flying from both parties. She wanting to explore more with him trying to figure out how he could have been so turned on watching her with another man.
One point I loved that I loved also in another book, was how the hero goes through the heroines books to find out what she truly desires and then goes about trying to make some of their fantasies come true. But both of the characters have to deal with what happens when fantasies become realities.
When something comes up on the weekend, both Seth and Leila must decide if staying married is what need to happen. Will their love conquer all or will this end their marriage forever?
It's a hard look into how relationships grow apart when you least expect it and how one couple deals with getting it back to what they want and need. I loved this book from beginning to end. I only wished it was a full length novel. I would have loved to delve deeper into their marriage after their realizations came to light and where it truly went after the book was done.
All I can say is I was blown away. A very true look into marriage, how it develops, fantasies being met and the depth each is willing to go to only to save their love and marriage. A must read!
This was a really interesting book. You don't find many erotic books (at least not that I've noticed) that deal with married couples who have reached the staid period of their relationship. I have to say that I find this kind of book really exciting. It's nice to see a couple who really love each other rekindle their romantic flames.
In this book, Seth and Leila have been married for 8 years. They got married when she was 19 and he was 21 when she became pregnant. He's been her only lover. Before her, he was a musician with all the wild-oats that entailed. He had and lived those wild single days, but put them behind him when he got married to Leila. Unfortunately, their very vanilla sex life has become a bit staid for both of them. The romance is definitely gone.
This book seemed very real to me. I thought both characters were portrayed beautifully especially their individual desolation about where their marriage is going. Neither one of them wants to give up, but neither one of them know what to do to save things at this point either. This isn't a simple, go live a fantasy and everything works out perfectly kind of book. Things are a lot more rocky and real than that, which I liked. I liked that the author made this realistic while at the same time, it was incredibly hot. Really just a fabulous read!
Leila and Seth came from two different worlds, she the spoiled rich girl and he the hard-working blue collar boy, who got married young and have fallen into a routine of taking each other for granted and letting doubt overwhelm them. An eye-opening moment makes each of them realize what they're about to lose and leads to an erotic weekend at the notorious Ranch where they'll give into long-held fantasies in an attempt to rekindle their marriage. It's a rocky weekend though but also utterly sexy and enlightening. The issues these two are going through befall many couples and Ms. Loren expresses their pain and doubts in a very realistic and easily relatable way. As they ached, I ached with them and wanted them to fight for their marriage just as much as them. They're both strong characters who lost their identities after becoming parents. They're no longer man and woman but rather mom and dad totally devoted to their family life. Only by focusing on their individual selves can they recall what made them first fall in love with each other.
There's a constant feeling of sexual tension permeating the entire story along with some very steamy encounters at The Ranch that kept my heart racing. The scenes mostly involve Leila and Seth but there is one encounter that's made even more erotic by the addition of Ian, whose story will be released next summer. The connection between Leila and Seth is clear no matter what problems they're having and I found their journey to rediscovery to be emotionally satisfying, even though I wish it had been a bit longer, and yet another reason why I adore Roni Loren's writing style. Still Into You can easily be read on its own, but with two other books in the series just as amazing, why wouldn't you want to read them all?
Loved the tie in to Jace and how Leila is his big sister... the next story belongs to him and I cannot wait!
