Redonk Nutshell: Sexual tension explodes between a bookstore employee and the straight-laced manager

I picked this up on a whim after hearing some chatter on Twitter over its hawtness.  Glad I did – I really enjoyed it.

Provoke Me is the story of Kelly and Spencer, two people that are constants in each other’s lives as employer (Spencer) and employee (Kelly) at a small family owned bookstore.  Their relationship has always been professional and friendly, though they’ve both secretly shared a mutual attraction to each other.  When Kelly’s friend encourages her to along on a trip to a sex club, Kelly is surprised to see Spencer’s familiar face.  The sparks fly, and before long these two end up forging onward.  They each consider their relationship to be a physical one, nothing too permanent or emotional.  But of course, things don’t go the way the initially planned, leaving them both to sort out their emotional baggage and make decisions that could make or break their relationship.

Provoke Me is some seriously spicy fun. Spencer and Kelly practically burn up between the pages, making this book probably one of the best erotic novels I’ve read this year. Some people will be turned off by it – Spencer can be a bit of a…well..a dick.  Kelly is pretty headstrong and outspoken.  A lot of the plot starts and circulates around a sex club.  So, it’s probably not for everyone.  But I enjoyed it.  Immensely.  The chemistry between these two is phenomenal.
