An exceptionally well written erotic romantic suspense... Author Sila Long weaves an exceptional erotic romantic suspense that will easily captivate the reader’s attention from the beginning. The author paints a compelling and intriguing story of love, passion and jealousy in a very vivid and convincing way. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction. It’s a relatively fast paced novel that will keep you engaged from the first page to the last. It’s a very absorbing read about how past relationships can affect future ones. Plus, we have the obligatory love triangle thrown in to spice things up! The book description gives a sneak preview: ‘Brook Jacobson is on a mission to live her life on new terms after being consumed with grief in the complicated aftermath of her husband’s murder. She never imagined that fate would catapult her into the surreal world of Isaac Coles, mega film star. Isaac is captivated by Brook’s intellect, beauty, warmth, her strength of character, and an undeniable visceral sexual attraction, but the unresolved pain from his past complicates his feelings of love. As their passion ignites, Brook falls hard for Isaac, but if he can’t commit to their relationship, she knows their love is doomed. And Isaac is used to doing things his way, which doesn’t include being monogamous.’ Now, if that’s not enough to get your curiosity juices flowing, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed. The story had every element a good story should have. A solid plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book. The erotica is accomplished in the delivery of exciting and titillating prose. From mild illusions through detailed, sexy scenes, the concept is wonderfully delivered in truly amazing writing. Captivating and commendable, this work had me immersed from the beginning. It’s an emotional fiction interwoven with sexual desire. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a truly compelling and fascinating journey! It’s one of those books that come along occasionally that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader. If this book is anything to go by, I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Sila Long in the future. It also has a distinctly cinematic feel to it and I could easily see it being adapted for a made-for-TV movie. This has all the hallmarks of making a great series. A well-deserved five stars from me.

My first book by Author Sila Long and if this book was any indication of her writing, wouldn't be my last. A scintillating tale of two broken souls, who meet at the right time and though everything doesn't fall into place right away .... they both needed each other at that point in their lives ... This is the story of Brooks (female MC who's lost her husband) and Issac (movie star, commitment-phobe, who's also lost his wife) meeting through a common friend and sparks fly! They have a passionate affair and etc have their own things to deal with, life and stuff happening ... especially with Brooks dealing with not knowing who killed her husband and the inquiry still going on. So what happens when they meet? Did they find Brook's husband's killer? Do Brooks and Issac get their HEA? Read the book to find out! Make sure you are ready for a thrilling and fast ride - this plot has love, romance, drama, mystery and more!

This is a captivating and wonderful erotic romantic suspense story. It is a story that I couldn’t put down. The plot was quick, and the characters were as diverse as they were unique and authentic. I just love a story like that. And I especially love suspense stories that have an erotic and romantic tinge like this one. Sila Long creates a story of love, passion and intrigue through the jealousy that is interweaved into the story. Where there is love there always seems to be some jealousy or other. But this jealousy really resonated with me through the characters and the plot. The story is about Brook Jacobson who is forced to reweave her life after being consumed with grief after the murder of her husband. There are so many unanswered questions, as there are with most murders. She was trying to cope as a widow and dealing with all the negative emotions and profound sadness that such a situation brings on. However, when her fate took an unprecedented turn towards something that she never would expect in a million years, she was wondering why something like this happened. She was thrown into an unreal world with Isaac Cole, a mega film star. Isaac is captivated by Brook’s many wonderful assets such as her intellect, beauty, warmth, and her strength of character given all that she went through. This made her sexually attracted to him almost immediately. However, this sexual attraction is tainted by Isaac’s life long problematic love relationships and problems with monogamy. It poisoned what could have been a great relationship with Brook. But love is blind; so, Brook falls completely in love with him. However, he cannot commit to their relationship for any length of time. Isaac is a very independent and well-established person. So, he always gets his way. This story weaves a modern-day romance. Not too many people commit wholeheartedly to anyone anymore. But the story is so much more than about a romance. It is about two people coming together at a time when they need each other the most. I can’t wait to read the next book!
