Man oh man is this a hot little read! This may be a short story, but it's length doesn't short change you in anyway. Syd and H.R.'s 'relationship' begins in the most unusual of ways, via an online chat. She's a super fan of the erotic novels he shares and his well written words are fuel to her fantasies, along with the mystic surrounding him. When the two meet it's fireworks! Hot and steamy. And while H.R. may be the older of the two, Syd teaches him a few thing as well. I adored how well they clicked in and out of the bedroom. Their initial meeting may have been only for a hook-up, but both respected it way more and it showed in how they wanted to please each other. Did I mention this story is hot??? Anyway if you're looking for a spicy read with a fulfilling HEA, you want to get this. You won't be disappointed.
Love Done Write by Amelia Foster and published by Evernight Publishing is a smoldering erotic romance novella that hits every sweet, steamy note. As a writer myself (I know, duh) who thoroughly enjoys erotic romance, it was a treat to find myself in the head of someone just like me. Sure, Sydney isn’t exactly like me—try about ten years younger, for starters—but her portrayal is so genuine and honest, I empathized with her right from the start. I felt all her uncertainties, fears, joys, and excitements like they were my own. Enter into the picture the undeniably studly Harrison and things just get better and better. As this is a novella, and an erotic romance, it follows a standard plot arc. However, how Ms. Foster goes about depicting that arc is fresh and unique. She utilizes tropes—such as May/December romance—to the ultimate degree, the pacing is perfect, and the chemistry of her leads practically leaps off the page. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys steamy heterosexual romance. It’s a quick, tantalizing read that’ll have you fanning yourself at its conclusion.
