    Once again, Jeffe Kennedy is keeping it real! While it probably

    Once again, Jeffe Kennedy is keeping it real! While it probably won’t happen that you go into a high class restaurant, order something on the menu in a way that it is not originally prepared, and have the chef come out screaming at you, and then offer you a night of wild abandonment, there are some other things that bring you back down to earth whilst reading Kennedy’s books.

    In a previous review of mine, of her book Platinum, I mentioned that I loved that the main character felt slight pain when she went to pee and wipe herself after some pretty heavy and rough sex — because that actually happens in real life!

    Now! Any book that has anal sex in it, or anal play (plugs, beads, whatever), will rarely touch on the fact that, well, hey, it’s kind of gross back there if you don’t prepare yourself properly. Why don’t they? Because it’s gross. Yes, I said it. However, people DO try out, and DO enjoy anal play. And there are some realistic ways to make it cleaner and awkward after the fact — such as enemas! Yep! You can buy them in the store! And that’s one thing that Danielle does in this book. Why do I love it? Because it’s real. And because Kennedy made it amusing. Danielle is shopping for an enema bag, trying to seem all nonchalant about it, (like young people buying condoms, or a guy buying tampons for his girl — always pick out a few extra things to try and mislead the checkout counter person!) She adds a few extra items to make it seem less weird, and thinks to herself “Some girls just shave their legs for dates”. I literally laughed out loud at this.

    Danielle is also VERY high-strung about her job, which seems to be a mainstay for anyone who works in fashion, and Prejean offers her an out of that life, if only for the time when the sun is down. Between the really hot sex, the delicious sounding food (thanks, Kennedy, for making my mouth water for beignets again, jerk.) and the amusing bits here and there, PLUS the fact that Prejean has a hidden side to him, and the H.E.A., it makes for one hell of a book.

    There’s a reason I try to review as many of Jeffe Kennedy’s books as I can, and why I went and bought her others books. This is a perfect example. Her writing is hot, fun, witty and real. I’m going with a Four pt Five out of Five for this book, just because not everyone will enjoy it. But if you like bits of pain, pleasure, good food and snarky comments mixed in, read this book!
