Read an Excerpt

I excuse myself and slip into the bathroom with the knowledge that I have hidden my sexy lingerie in there. My desire is to make him hungry for something other than food. I quickly strip down to my new black lace underwear and matching bra; I even splurged and bought the thigh-high stockings and black stilettos to match. I let my hair down, take a quick peek in the mirror and almost lose my courage, but this is my husband and he wanted me to be more adventurous so here goes. I walk out of the bathroom in time to hear him say, ‘Goodbye,’ and hang up his cell phone. He looks up, sees me and freezes. His stunned expression gives me courage and I hold the blindfold up for him to see.

I saunter up to him and say, ‘How about some dessert?’ as I start to slip the cover over his eyes.

He grabs my hand before I can reach his face and stares into my eyes, saying the words, ‘I want a divorce,’ 

Meet the Author

Shannon Casey was born in Turlock, California, the second oldest of eight children. Being the only girl she had to use her imagination to entertain herself. She was also a tomboy who never let the fact that she was a girl slow her down. She learned to ride horses better than the boys and practiced her hand at roping and barrel racing. She married her high school sweetheart during her senior year and became a mother at 17, but she didn't let that slow her down. Her daughter became her motivation to obtain her college degree and create a better life for them. Shannon graduated from CSU Stanislaus in 1997 and soon after had her second daughter. She went on to obtain two master degrees in psychology, two credentials and a private license. During her career as a psychologist she never gave up her dream of becoming an author, but as the years passed she never found the time to actually write. Like most people, the daily grind and spending time with her children took precedence over her desire to create. Then she met her second husband, Corey Casey, through her older brother Anthony. They married in March 2008. When her son was born in July 2009 it was the perfect time for her to cut her hours to part time and do something more creative. Corey inspired her to pick up her pen and write, telling her that she would never know unless she tried. Since that time, she has written her first novel, traveled and found her creative outlet. Passion from the Vine is sort of a compilation of all the things Shannon loves; travelling, cooking, wine tasting, and romance.

I won a copy of this story from an event hosted by a great Goodreads group. The story starts out as the main character plans for a romantic anniversary night with her husband of 1 year. Her husband breaks her heart after telling her he wants a divorce. She leaves and goes to stay with her mother who just happens to be a sex therapist. Her mother convinces her to take a 6 month vac in Rome. While she is on vacation she has her first f/f interaction and falls in love with a sexy Italian. Enjoyable read, just wish the ending would of been longer with more details.

I just finished this book. I absolutely loved it. It was a great love story and the characters were wonderful. The intimate scenes are very hot. Make sure you have your husband/wife nearby, because after reading you’ll want to attack them.
