This is one of my favorite books of all time.  I’ve been pressuring Kate to read it.  And when I say pressuring I mean that I annoyed her to the point that she probably read it just to get me to stop bringing it up.  I thought she’d LOVE it just like me.  But she read it and said it was pretty good.  Pretty good?  Seriously?  Now I feel the need to defend this awesome story.  So if you’re looking for an unbiased review?  You should probably go read Kate’s review.

  1. Flynn – a tattoed, rough and scarred fighter/boxer long before it was cool in other romances
  2. Rape role playing – this is the best I’ve ever seen this done. Their discussion ahead of time, the safeword, the scenarios they play out, the way they care for each other during and after their sessions – this is sex done right.
  3. This:

They walked to Flynn’s building without speaking and he punched the floor buttons for two and five.  He made his usual stop to knock on his sister’s door then returne, a hardness to his expression.

“You okay?” Laurel asked.

“Second we get in that apartment,” Flynn muttered, “it’s on.”

“What’s on?”

The growl in his voice was all the answer she needed.  “You fucking know.”


Now I know Kate didn’t like the abrupt ending – I am fine with it.  I feel confident that they’ll be ok.  And I know that the voyeurism scene is the book is off putting to some, but for me, because all parties involved were on board?  So hot.  It totally worked for me!

So what’s your all time favorite read?  (Or just one of them if you can’t narrow it down!)
