After fifteen years of marriage, Jessica Meyers's sex life is, well, a little predictable. Her handsome husband turns her on, but missionary style once or twice a week? It just can't compare to the hot new world she discovers in the pages of erotic romances. Her fantasies fuel the fire of her desire, adding a new spark to her and Alex's lovemaking. But Jess is afraid to tell her husband what she really wants in bed—and her secrets start coming between them.

State trooper Alex Meyers is a master at uncovering the truth—except when it comes to his sweet, shy wife. She's clearly keeping something from him. An affair? She wants out? When he finally confronts Jess, he's shocked to learn she wants to turn her forbidden fantasies into nightly realities. But when he takes her to a unique B and B—Bondage and Breakfast—catering to couples and multiples, Alex is about to find out just how far he'll go.

Read an Excerpt

God, she hated conflict, especially the kind between her and Alex. And really, if this whole emotionally draining, nerve-twitching situation was anyone's fault, it was his. After all, he'd been the one to give her the gift card she'd used to buy the first book. And the second. And the third.

Jessica Meyers sighed disgustedly as she tested the water of her bubble bath. No, none of this was Alex's doing. It was all hers, and she was going to have to find a way to fix it. Soon, before the confused frustration she saw in her husband's eyes turned into something irreparable.

It was late, but she needed to unwind. The kids were sound asleep, and Alex, a Maryland State Trooper, was still at work. He probably would be all night, unless the MSP caught a break on the case that had been all over the nightly news. It was quiet for once, and maybe now she could figure out what the hell she was going to do to make things right again.

She lit some aromatherapy candles that matched the scent of her bubble bath, turned off the overhead light and climbed into the claw-foot tub, sighing as the steamy water did its thing on her muscles. She settled back and closed her eyes, breathing deeply, letting the soothing aroma of eucalyptus seep into her pores. Her hands drifted idly over her stomach, back and forth through the thick bubbles.

Alex. She loved that man so much, even more than the day she'd said I do. They'd been through a lot together these past fifteen years, but never once had she been sorry she'd married Alex right out of college. She still wasn't sorry. She couldn't imagine ever being sorry. And yet, as much as she loved Alex and their life together, she was restless and itchy, and it had all started with a book.

It had been another Friday night, and she'd been alone in the house. Ten-year-old Kara had been sleeping at her best friend's house, and seven-year-old Ben had gone on a camping trip. Alex and Jess had planned a much-needed date night, but then Alex called her to say he'd caught a case and would be working late.

Jess was frustrated, but she'd been a cop's wife long enough to suck it up and not blame Alex for things out of his control. Rather than sit home alone, she drove to the bookstore in Frederick, looking for something new and fun and distracting to read.

She picked up book after book, looking at the covers and reading the backs, but nothing caught her attention. She was kneeling on the floor, surrounded by possible choices, when she found it on the bottom shelf.

The cover drew her attention first. It showcased a hazy photograph of a wrought iron four-poster bed with plush white bed linens, rumpled as if someone had just woken and stepped out of the room. A silky black scarf, tied in a knot like a blindfold, lay at the foot of the bed. Men's ties were looped around each of the four posts.

Her mouth went bone dry, her mind whirling with images of what might've happened in that bed. She flipped the book over to read the back cover copy and got sucked right in. The erotic promise in those words flowed over her like warm honey, and she turned to the first page. Exactly what she'd been looking for. She paid for her book and headed home.

My Review: OMG, I cannot tell you just how much I loved this book. It was fantastic and so freaking hot! OMG! In this book, Jess has discovered the world of erotic romances. Jessica had a very strict upbringing and has been always very shy about sex, but these books have opened new fantasies for Jessica. The problem is, that she feels guilty about the she is somehow betraying her husband. Her husband knows that something is wrong. The sex has been phenomenal, but for some reason Jess is pulling back emotionally and he is worried. They've always had a really strong marriage and both of these people are completely in love with each other. They are both terrified that is falling apart. While the sex is better than it has ever been, they are growing apart emotionally. Jessica is afraid to confide her fantasies. She thinks that Alex will become disgusted. Alex, for his part, is starting to think that she is having an affair. This is an erotica novel, but the realistic side of the uncomfortable issues that the fantasies bring up was so well-done. This book is just brilliantly written! And did I mention it was HOT?!? freaking hot! The scene with the hairband...YOWZA!!! As someone who's been married for 20 years, had an upbringing much like Jessica's, and has discovered erotica, I wanted to stand up and applaud how well-written this book is. It is so spot-on without being heavy or depressing. It's incredibly hot and sexy while at the same time showing some real intricacies of long-term marriage. Marketing tip for need to print gift editions of this book! I have been known to leave my erotica books for my husband to find. I would LOVE to give him a copy of this book. I think that we'd BOTH ENJOY IT. ;o) I highly recommend this one!

If you want a hot, sexy read, this is it. If you want real life marriage problems, this is it. Add the two together and you get a rekindling of love and lust, of trust and desire. Every marriage goes through its ups and downs, but it takes guts to fan the flames again. Jodie Griffin did a great job on making the reader get sucked into the story...

This story was sexy and sweet. Married for fifteen years, Jessica and Alex are comfortable with their lives, but it is not terribly exciting. Jessica wants to bring some spice into their relationship like the types of things she reads about in her romance novels. She has reservations bringing these things up to her husband, afraid of what he will think of her ideas. I like that the author chose to write about a married couple with a long history. This was not some fly by night romance. The couple has an almost perfect life; all it is missing is some excitement. The author did a good job getting both Jessica's and Alex's emotions into the story as they began to communicate inside the bedroom and began to really learn what the other wanted and needed.

What is a woman to do, when she was raised extremely conservative, but now has these amazing sexual desires that she is afraid to share with her husband? You can find out in this wonderful story. This book is unlike any other I've read, and I loved every page! Jess's internal struggle is affecting her marriage. She doesn't know how to tell her husband of the sexual fantasies she has, and Alex fears the worst when she starts acting strangely about their sex life. The misunderstandings, miscommunication and internal struggles make this erotic romance so much more realistic and exciting. I loved reading about a married couples issues, and it seemed so real. I definitely recommend this to any romance, or erotic romance lover!
