Ashley Thompson had a wild time at her party last Friday night. Maybe too wild. She wakes to find a video of her in the middle of a ménage a trois with her ex-boyfriend and a gorgeous stranger. Unable to remember anything about the night, other than the hot sex she sees on the computer screen, Ashley begins a search for Mr. Hunk. She has no luck until he unexpectedly shows up–in her shower.
Hunter Hopewell intends to introduce Ash to a variety of sexual experiences he finds fun and exciting. He proposes a week-long series of “colorful” encounters designed to seduce Ashley out of her kink comfort zone.
As their week of escalating pleasure intensifies, Ashley must choose to let go of her inhibitions or risk losing the best damn lover she’s ever had.
Yowza! Hot! This book was something else, for sure! You start off with Ashley waking up and hung over. Ugh! What the heck happened last night? Well, her ex, Sam, is close by and he’s just figured it out – by watching a video on the internet. Can we all hold hands and say drunken menagerie? Yowza!
But… wait… who is that massive hunk? Do you know? No, I don’t know! I thought you knew! Hell no, I don’t know!! No one knows!!!
Seriously, as horrible of a situation as that could possibly be, this author had a way with words to make it hot. And very soon Ashley was able to find out exactly who it was. Hunter. And Hunter has a proposition - seven days of expanding your horizons, ending with the holy grail of some men’s dreams.
I really enjoyed this story! It was hot (uh, yeah Liz, you said that) and imaginative. It was a lot of fun to read! And at roughly 50-ish pages on my kindle, it went quick! The characters develop well, and there are even a few secrets inside to add a little depth to our dear Hunter. And as far as the nookie goes, you get a taste of quite a few different things. All in all, I’d say good read and I am very excited to read some more from Jenna Jaxon!
The bathroom door opened and closed. Her hands froze.
"Damn it, Sam. Why is it every time I take a shower you have to pee? Couldn't you just hold it for once? Or pee in a cup, for God's sake?"
"I'm not Sam. And I don't have to pee."
Ashley's eyes popped open and the bottle of body wash hit the tub with a loud thunk. The husky voice she'd heard on yesterday's video and in this morning's dream was richer in person. Sexier. Her heart took off like a deer after a shotgun blast. She peered at the shower door, seeing only a shadowy figure through the opaque glass. Well thank, God, for that. He couldn't see her either.
"Hello? Are you there, Ash?" The amusement in his tone brought her back to earth.
"Yeah, I'm here. And just who the hell are you?"
"I'm Hunter Hopewell. Sorry we didn't really get introduced the other night."
"No shit." Damn. The all-important name meant nothing. The spray from the shower roared in her ears and Ashley took a step toward the shower door.
"So who are you? I mean, you say Hunter Hopewell, but I don't know you. And you know me."
"Yes, I do. I've never met you, but I've been interested in you for a while now."
Despite the hot water, chills raced over her body, standing her hair on end. Oh, my God. A stalker. I've attracted a stalker. And I'm shut in a bathroom with him. Suddenly, she couldn't breathe.
"You work over in English at the university." He knew where she worked. "And I've seen you around the campus." He'd been watching her.
She wrapped her arms around her chest, shielding her body as best she could. Maybe Sam would come in.
"You're a beautiful girl, Ashley. With lots of potential."
Potential for what? Needing to breathe or pass out, she gasped in air.
"I think you should leave." Where the balls came from to utter that sentence, she had no idea.
"Why?" His voice rose an octave.
"Because you're scaring the crap out of me."
