Library JournalStarting a new job to be close to her reckless sister, Erin Coffey is the newest licensed practical nurse at Larkhaven’s psychiatric ward, the mental illness unit of a Michigan hospital. Among the staff is orderly Kelly Robak, a hulking muscle of a man whose brute strength coupled with persistent calm keep the staff and patients safe. Kelly is interested in Erin, but she is leery to start a relationship with a coworker, especially when she learns that what is on the table is not a relationship at all but a few days of mind-blowing sex. And what Kelly desires requires his having all the control while Erin becomes his submissive. Erin has had a preview of what’s in store but has always played it safe. She may be able to give up control for a weekend but worries about what it will cost her heart in the long run.
Verdict Since the Fifty Shades phenomenon, there has been an abundance of substandard erotica diluting the genre, but McKenna’s (Exposure) After Hours stands out for its depth of characterization. The complexities, story line, and pulsating heat will keep readers immersed.—Kara Kohn, Plainfield P.L. Dist., IL
