In this story we have a romance novel writing divorcee Jillian as the protagonist, her crazy friend Victoria, her son Rob, and his visiting hot friend Brian. Brian, by virtue of being the protagonist’s interest, attracts every female in the novel and is flawless. Jillian is more down to earth and human feeling. Victoria I was most curious about, as she seemed to have the most potential for depth and an interesting backstory; though in this story she’s not really a sympathetic character.
The first half or so of the book is erotica: amusing, sexy, and fun to read as it flits between different characters’ view points. The ending part of the novel… not so much. Suddenly there’s boatloads of drama and feelings everywhere, and the light style that was present earlier in the book slips away. The book started off very funny, self-aware, and sexy, and slowly spiraled off. Perhaps if everything hadn’t been tied up so neatly this wouldn’t have happened, and the ending could have been stronger.
All in all though I did find this a fun sexy story, and I have high hopes for a novel explaining Victoria. I would recommend this story to anyone who would like a short romantic and erotic piece to read before bedtime.
