Story Overview:
After fifteen years of marriage, Jessica Meyers's sex life is, well, a little predictable. Her handsome husband turns her on, but missionary style once or twice a week? It just can't compare to the hot new world she discovers in the pages of erotic romances. Her fantasies fuel the fire of her desire, adding a new spark to her and Alex's lovemaking. But Jess is afraid to tell her husband what she really wants in bed-and her secrets start coming between them.

State trooper Alex Meyers is a master at uncovering the truth-except when it comes to his sweet, shy wife. She's clearly keeping something from him. An affair? She wants out? When he finally confronts Jess, he's shocked to learn she wants to turn her forbidden fantasies into nightly realities. But when he takes her to a unique B and B-Bondage and Breakfast-catering to couples and multiples, Alex is about to find out just how far he'll go.

My Review:
OMG, I cannot tell you just how much I loved this book. It was fantastic and so freaking hot! OMG! In this book, Jess has discovered the world of erotic romances. Jessica had a very strict upbringing and has been always very shy about sex, but these books have opened new fantasies for Jessica. The problem is, that she feels guilty about the fantasies...like she is somehow betraying her husband. Her husband knows that something is wrong. The sex has been phenomenal, but for some reason Jess is pulling back emotionally and he is worried.

They've always had a really strong marriage and both of these people are completely in love with each other. They are both terrified that is falling apart. While the sex is better than it has ever been, they are growing apart emotionally. Jessica is afraid to confide her fantasies. She thinks that Alex will become disgusted. Alex, for his part, is starting to think that she is having an affair. This is an erotica novel, but the realistic side of the uncomfortable issues that the fantasies bring up was so well-done. This book is just brilliantly written! And did I mention it was HOT?!? OMG...so freaking hot! The scene with the hairband...YOWZA!!!

As someone who's been married for 20 years, had an upbringing much like Jessica's, and has discovered erotica, I wanted to stand up and applaud how well-written this book is. It is so spot-on without being heavy or depressing. It's incredibly hot and sexy while at the same time showing some real intricacies of long-term marriage.

Marketing tip for Carina...you need to print gift editions of this book! I have been known to leave my erotica books for my husband to find. I would LOVE to give him a copy of this book. I think that we'd BOTH ENJOY IT. ;o) I highly recommend this one!
