Mari meets Luca on an adult website. She’s still smarting from a divorce and only looking to explore her desires. They create wish lists of their sexual fantasies and agree to work through them together. No strings, no attachments, nothing but pleasure, and Mari anticipates their first meeting with impatience. But through a miscommunication involving a private text message and Mari’s nosy brother, Luca ends up at her 30th birthday party, before their planned rendezvous. Much to her surprise, they seem to connect better than she expected, and in ways she hadn’t expected. He’s strong, commanding, but also gentle and respectful and he makes her ache in ways she never thought possible.
But when Luca later expresses a desire for something more than just casual sex, Mari's impulse is to run the other way. After all, her failed marriage is evidence that she really shouldn’t go much deeper. Can Luca convince Mari otherwise? Can he help her see that he's her ultimate birthday wish come true?
This is a hot little novella that burns up the sheets as you read. Mari doesn’t think she wants a relationship, just no strings attached sex. She thinks she gets that, she thinks that is what she is prepared for, but who wouldn’t fall for Luca. They make their bucket list of things they wish to do within their no-strings attached relationship, and as they start out on their journey, they both start to develop feelings. Just as things start to progress nicely between them and they are accepting they may want more, our author ends the book. Book 2 comes out later this year. But I strongly suggest reading this if you are looking for a short, quick, hot read.
I rate this novella:
