Trisha, a recent divorcee, wants to explore the wilder side of sex and discover a more sensuous part of herself. When long-time client Zach Walters suggests a weekend together, she agrees. He provides her with an unforgettable night of hot, sweaty sex, while unbeknownst to either of them the tryst is being recorded.
No woman has ever excited Zach Wallace like Trisha. He’s willing to indulge his fantasies as well as hers, but he can’t afford to get too close. He has a weakness for damsels in distress and a secret to protect. Only one thing threatens their happiness—a vengeful ex-husband.
A roller coaster of a ride for Trisha (owner of a hard earned hair salon) being recently divorced from one nasty piece of work all she wants is to feel like a woman again. Desired, sexy and even possibly truly loved by a man, she craves the wilder side of sex and wants to ascertain a more sensuous part of herself. Real new adventures and (what some would consider) forbidden acts in the pleasures of intimacy are what’s on her menu.
The story started out at a slow pace leaving me not fully understanding what was going on. As it picked up everything became much clearer and the pace picked up. It’s packed full of amazingly titillating sex that involves light spankings, a blindfold and restraints at some points (and what very hot points they were *wink). Divorce, abuse, trust issues, friendship, independent woman swept off her feet by a long time client and admirer Zach is some of what happens within the book. But Trisha's fantasy comes to a screeching halt when she finds out Zach is not 100% honest with her. That causes much doubt and pain in the long run. You'll find yourself screaming in your head at the characters at some points and panting from the heat and chemistry between Zach and Trisha at other times. You also may find that you want to beat another individual to an oblivious pulp (I know I did). This is a good read for anyone looking for some sex with a story that many women can relate to.
