    Very Disappointing

    I like a little kink as well as the next person but this book was ridiculous. The story plot was illogical (even for a work of fiction) and there was no real relationship amongst any of the characters. The female character was portrayed as some psycho nymphomaniac that couldn't keep her knickers up for 10 minutes.

    Horrible - Don't waste your time or money.

    Hot Read

    Mandy is content with her life...but bored. After a hot dream featuring one of her favorite stars, Mandy tries to seduce her boyfriend Martin, but since it isn't Tuesday or Friday, he stalls. Then Mandy comes home early from her job as a librarian, and catches Martin just as his 'other woman' is leaving. Mandy tosses him out, along with the mattress that he cheated on, and questions her own sexuality, wondering why she wasn't enough.

    An encounter with a mystery stranger makes her feel alive and attractive so she embarks on a series of sexcapades, from sex on the job with Sean, a co-worker at the library, to sex in the park with the mysterious stranger, and finally, with her new roommate, James. She begins to realize she is out of control, but can't seem to stop. When she realizes she has strong feelings for James, she tries to cut back her activities. Can she settle down and find happiness with one man? Can Mandy find a way to live her fantasies with James?

    Shelley Aikens has written a hot and sex filled story of betrayal and discovery. The action is set off by Martin's betrayal of Mandy, and leads Mandy to experiment with her sexuality in many ways. From her workplace, to the park, and several other places, she proves to herself that she is still attractive, but begins to doubt what she's doing is what she truly needs.

    Mandy is an interesting character. She begins as a disappointed and slightly bored woman and after Martin's betrayal, she seems to go just a bit wild. She feels lacking, and thinks the only way to feel better is to fulfill all of her fantasies. She uses less than good judgement, especially in her encounters with the 'mysterious stranger' first in the library, then later in the park. She finally gets her act together when she realizes what she really wants.

    The men in Mandy's life are all attractive, but each has a different way to treat her. Sean starts off shy, but quickly becomes dominating and demanding. The mysterious stranger floats in and out almost like a dream. James starts as a neighbor who offers a room to Mandy in exchange for dog sitting, but it is this man who helps Mandy come to terms with what she really wants.

    This is a very hot book, filled with as many fantasies as the author could pack in here. I felt a bit overwhelmed at times by all that was going on. I was a bit uncomfortable in a couple of spots, but I did enjoy the happy ever after that Mandy finally found. This story is definitely not for the faint of heart, and the heat is high enough to singe your fingertips.

    DO NOT RECOMMEND! - NO STORY OR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

    I liked the outline of the book but when I started to read it had no story. The characters were underdeveloped and so was the story. Mandy had no impulse control as far as if something was waved or rubbed against her she was ready. I forced myself to finish the book thinking it would get better but it did not. I would not recommend this book if you want a story to go along with all the sex. If you are looking for no story and characters are that are cardboard and a lot of sex then this great. Maybe her writing will get better after a couple more books.
