A funky cover made me want to read this story and I am glad that I did. Let me know what you think.
This was the first story that I have read by this author. I love discovering "new to me" authors and this book had a funky cover. I was intrigued.
Lena has been dragged to the local sports bar by her best friend and roommate Jeremiah. He was talking with his friends and she was sitting at the bar alone when she was approached by a new guy.
A harmless flirtation follows, she names him Rusty because of his rusty pick up lines and he calls her Loner. She agrees to share a cab ride home with him and experiences an earth shattering kiss.
Without getting her name it is only by chance that he runs into her at the school she is teaching at. He is there because of his nephew Charlie who he has custody of because his parents had died.
Lena and Eric finally found out each others name. Eric is a Dom and he is introducing Lena to his world. She has some demons in her past as she was raised in foster care and she is hesitant but eager to experience this.
There are, of course a few bumps in the road, Lena has some issues that she needs to deal with once and for all in order for her to truly be able to live her life. Eric's parents provide humour and angst as Mom does not approve of his lifestyle now that he has Charlie. Poor Charlie has not said a word since he parents died.
Throw in some padded wrist cuffs, an mild introduction to menage with bartender and best friend Cade, some funky usage of clothes pin and we have a winner or a story.
It was face paced and flowed easily. I really enjoyed that this was about more that just the sex. Her childhood issues were handled beautifully. His parents and Charlie played a big part of the story and it was fun to watch that relationship as it unfolded. We are left knowing that there may be much more in store for these two lovers as they journey towards their HEA. I would rate this story a 5/5.
