What do I love about this story? Undeniably, it is the capability of the story to outright get my interest and make me look forward to what will happen next. It got me hooked! I already know just by reading the first page that I am on for a hot, steamy, sexy story but I wasn’t expecting the events that happened after that fateful encounter in the club. And it wasn’t their real beginning yet.
The real start of their beautiful love story began with THE CALL.
Ralph meeting Alice had a life-altering effect on him and for Alice as well. With the twists and turns of the story, I realized that both characters are complex, both have their inner conflicts, their own problems but both fell in love with each other as fate deemed so.
As I go reading the story, I get to know who Ralph really is just as I am able to grasp Alice’s real character. And Ralph is much more than the sexy playboy he was first depicted as. And Alice is more than the woman who rattled Ralph’s boring world or the woman who gave THE CALL. In my mind, they live as if they are my friendly neighbours - like as if they are real, breathing people instead of characters in a story.
I can’t say yet if this book was able to meet my expectations as I am bound to read book 2. (I have to read Book 2!) Still, I can very well say that Ross’ story telling is superb in this score. She effectively sent me to Ralph and Alice’s world, let me know who they really are, make me realize that their problems are problems just like what real people encounter, and that what their experiences are the experiences of real people. She made me sympathize with the characters, understand their conflict and cheer out for the story in a whole.
I am only starting to read Sandra Ross and just hope she continues the bang and the umph. I am now looking forward to Ralph’s Gift 2.

Well, if you are looking for some erotic excitement in your life then this is most definitely the book for
you. From the word go we are plunged head first into sexual antics as Ralph and Alice’s paths cross
in a rowdy bar. There is no time wasted as their connection is immediate and they are both swept
up into a game of cat-and-mouse that eventually ends in a steamy one-night stand. Their encounter
is not your normal one-night stand and they realize that there is a lot more to what they feel for
each other and an exciting adventure begins. As with all of Sandra Ross’ stories, there is always
more to the story than initially anticipated and when this book ends you realize that you wont be
satisfied until you read part 2.
Sandra Ross really has a way of capturing moments and making you feel that you are part of it. I
am a bit of a language and grammar snob but I find her writing style to be extremely refreshing and
easy to read and I don’t even find myself noticing the words, I just get caught up in the moment and
her writing style always seems to fit the context and characters. I would recommend this book for
anybody who has had a tough day at work and needs a time out, or just anybody who is wishing
to escape into some delectable sexual fantasy for a while – this book is definitely appropriately
rated for adults only!

Sandra Ross knows how to get you hooked to her writing. This is the first book I’ve read among the many she wrote. Let me tell you, this book really jumpstarts you system!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Alice and Ralph met at a bar. At first, it was just your average night out until things spice up when Alice loses a bet and ends up giving Ralph a low down, if you know what I mean. When all was said and done, Ralph couldn’t just let it end like that. He gave Alice his number just in case she liked him as much as he liked her and gave him a call. After that night, sparks start to fly and the drama begins.
Sandra Ross writes to please her readers. She knows just when to give in and when to hold back a little to keep up wanting more. The whole book is an erotic creation meant to stimulate all our senses. It made my hands sweaty just reading it. The chemistry and dilemma are well described and developed.
You have to know that the ending is a bit lacking. You’ll have to read her second book to enjoy it fully. This is probably the only drawback there is. Don’t worry, the second book will fill you in on what the first book didn’t enhance. Read the two books together and you’ll get one hell of an erotic read! It’s one kinky and steamy scene after another!
