    Tuesday Cane walks out on her life and her abusive man when she

    Tuesday Cane walks out on her life and her abusive man when she inherits her grandmother's house at Allister Lake. There she finds plenty of distractions to take her mind off her loss with her sexy neighbour and handyman Shepherd, former TV star Reed and her old flame Adrian. But, as time passes, she senses that something is not quite right with her new life. And no amount of steamy sexual encounters can hide her anxiety. Surrounded by so many interesting men and erotic enticements, Tuesday has no intention of committing to one man ever again. But the more she insists she's nobody's girl, the more she wants to be somebody's girl. Will she continue to be a restless spirit and run from love or will she be won over?


    First, I have to say I liked this book.

    Now, I have to say this is a hard book for me to is erotic romance with suspense added in.

    What I like and dislike about this is that the Lead character, Tuesday is the Restless Spirit. I like that she is free spirited, strong, comfortable with her sexuality. What I do have a problem with is that even though Tuesday tells the men in her life that she does not want commitments I have a problem with her having sex with one then another. This did not interfere with me enjoying the story as a whole and I would totally recommend the book.

    Tuesday has escaped from an abusive ex and moved into her Nan's home after she passes away. As she settles into life in the small town she gets reacquainted with the handyman caretaker, Adrian that she knew from her youth. She also meets Sheperd her neighbor and Reed former television star now farmer. Tuesday's sexual encounters with all three men are extremely sexy and sensual. But someone has been lurking around and the incidents escalate as Tuesday gets closer to one of the men, and yes, I am not going to tell you which one.

    I loved reading Tuesday's journey through sensual and emotional discovery and highly recommend this book.

    Tuesday Cane wasn┬┐t my favorite day of the week, even though I e

    Tuesday Cane wasn’t my favorite day of the week, even though I ended up liking her all the same. Our relationship proved a bit tumultuous at times, as she bounced between men with a slap happy insistence that caused my head to jerk about as frequently as a male teenager with ADD. She dialed 3825 (to copulate) so often that she must have had it preprogrammed into her phone at the top of her speed dial. And there was so much screwing and yanging the wang I wouldn’t have been surprised if my pages weren’t somehow lubricated.

    RESTLESS SPIRIT could have been the name of a horse, or it could have been a metaphor for the way I felt as I devoured this book, the pages filling my fantasies six ways from Sunday, the days of the week flying by in epic and unexpected passion. The bare sex scenes heightened my senses to the point that I felt a part of the action, peering out of the bedroom closet with one eye focused on the prize, and There’s Something About Mary doesn’t have anything on the sticky hair scene contained in this novel.

    Shepard Moore proved every bit as strong as Tuesday Cane, but I found Adrian and Reed Green a bit lacking in the strong and silent type department. Tuesday, however, proved plenty restless, and worked her way up and down the small town. If she didn’t hold a certain appeal that I can’t quite describe, her finger hovering over the eject button might have shown me the error of my ways, or caused a sad shake of my head. But if it’s all the same to you, I’ll relish the wanton abandon contained within these pages, even as the ending was projected on my flat screen well before we reached the finish line.

    All in all a fine read if you’re into that will she or won’t she sort of thing, but not one I’ll probably revisit anytime soon.

    I received this book for free through NetGalley.

    Starting over isn't so simple...

    Sommer Marsden is a well known, well respected author of Erotic Literature and after reading her book Restless Spirit, it is easy to understand why. It starts with sex and ends with sex—hot sex—with lots and lots of it sprinkled in-between. However, amongst the many mind blowing orgasms, there is a plot. I say this because I have read plenty of books of this nature that don’t. It twisted at the end and actually managed to surprise me, which was refreshing to say the least. The characters and situations were believable and realistic, not eye-rolling and cheesy. Sommer has this incredible way of balancing the emotional baggage of her characters and their hardships in life with sweetness, vulnerability, and yes even humor. Tuesday Crane, a self proclaimed “nobody’s girl,” is one such character and the heroine of this story. She is tough, independent and strong, and after fleeing an abusive lover, is determined to keep love at a safe distance. Shepherd Moore, local handyman and neighbor, is a dark brooding mystery with a secret past of his own, who challenges Tuesday’s resolve. Their union is raw, honest and healing, but not without some serious challenges along the way. I just couldn’t keep myself from rooting for them as I read. The sex scenes range from intense and animalistic to playful and fun, but all will find you squirming in your seat. They are well written, dirty and extremely graphic without being overtly vulgar. This book hooks you right away and keeps you reading, leaving you a bit “restless” yourself until the very last page!

    I've not read many of Ms. Marsden's books, but as a reader who e

    I've not read many of Ms. Marsden's books, but as a reader who enjoys steamy reads, I found that what she's created meets all my steamy needs. From start to finish we're presented with three very different yet sexy and appealing men all trying to win the heart of mentally weakened through abuse by her ex, Tuesday Cane. This leads to numerous sexual interludes that become more and more intense as the story progresses.

    Tuesday is a character that I both liked and was annoyed by. I admire her leaving her abusive ex and showing strength when her life is put at risk by a crazy stalker, but I felt she was using each of these men for almost the entire story by sleeping with all of them repeatedly. I know she's committment-phobic, but her actions lessened my favorable impression of her. Each of her suitors were appealing for a variety of reasons. Aidan was heroic, loyal, and protective. Reed was charming and carefree and could financially support her in comfort. Shepherd was mysterious yet understanding of Tuesday's dark needs since he's of the same mentality. He allowed her to be strong and never judged her. I can understand her dilemma considering how tempting all three of them are.

    The issue with the stalker was subtly introduced with the perpetrator well concealed as the feelings of danger and paranoia believably escalated. His capture occurred quickly with this storyline wrapped up a bit too quickly and neatly.

    The sexual encounters are what are most memorable upon completing this book. The scenes are varied and creative. They're super steamy with an intense build-up of sexual tension leading to a few scenes late in the story with heavier BDSM elements. This whole read felt like one big fantasy and I look forward to entering other fantasy worlds Ms. Marsden creates in the future and recommend you do to.

    An intense read...

    No matter how often I read Sommer Marsden's erotic romances, I am always surprised and delighted by the level of intensity she gives her characters. They multi-layered and often gifted with a dark sense of humor that lightens mood of these emotional stories. The men are irresistible and would make even the most staunchly independent woman beg to be rescued. In Restless Spirit Tuesday Cane has her choice of three though she knows from the very beginning that only one can pull her restless spirit back to earth. The question is will Tuesday Cane be strong enough to accept what he has to give.
