Crack? It wasn’t a bad way to put it. He certainly felt as if someone had ripped him apart and put him back together all wrong.
Sizzle and snap, this lascivious story had my Kindle throwing off sparks. It was lust at first sight and this couple was a five-alarm fire hazard. I could skip any plans of cardio for the day as this tale had me gasping for breath, elevated my heart rate, and doubled my laundry. It could best be coined as an out of office unromance as neither party was willing to have anything to do with the other once they realized they would be working together. Yet neither could seem to concentrate. The premise wasn’t unique but the storylines were entertaining with frequent lashings of salacious inner musings. It was a quick, easy to follow and umm, highly sensual read. Certainly not one I would recommend for my elderly mother’s church ladies book club. Keep cool libations handy and ceiling fans set on high.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this story. But I felt like there was an opportunity to explore the way our past haunts us more. Rachael touched on it, but it felt like it was only done to give the characters some depth rather than exploring and unpacking something most of us experience in one way or another.
Compared to Unshackled I felt really let down on this front. But then again, if Rachael never wanted to focus on a topic like it felt like she did in Unshackled then it makes sense. I guess it’d be hard to come up with new issues to explore and unpack for every book you write in a meaningful way.
