I have wanted you for so long now,” he said roughly, “I’ve no memory of how it feels to be devoid of the craving. But you must know what you do. I need you to think of who you are and where you are and who I am. Think of how things will be once we’ve crossed this threshold. Think of how you will leave this cabin—disheveled and well fucked.”
Redonk Nutshell: A man and woman reunite seven years after their first meeting
I’ve come to learn that you can depend on Sylvia Day to deliver some truly toe-curling erotic reads. I adored Seven Years. This isn’t a new release, but a re-issue on Ms. Day’s popularity of Bared to You.
Jessica Sheffield is content with her place in life. She’s set to marry a good man the next day, and she foresees her future in a good light. When she comes upon a tryst with the notorious Alistair Caulfield she should be scandalized. Instead, it lights something alight inside her that she pushes aside for the sake of propriety. She doesn’t mention what she saw, but both she and Alistair know.
Fast forward seven years, and Jessica is a widow. She is set to travel to the Caribbean to look at her husband’s plantation, and her brother-in-law enlists the help of his good friend Alistair to travel with her. When the two reunite, the spark that had briefly lit seven years prior once more ignites. Jessica is no fool – while she knows she has some serious lust going on, she has no desire to start something that won’t pan out. She also values her reputation. But weeks on board a ship with Alistair quickly changes her view, and the two embark on an intense affair.
I adored this book. It’s romantic and delicious. It makes for a good snack while waiting for the next Crossfire novel *wink wink*
