P.F. Kozak pulls it all together in this contemporary erotic romance. Pash, short for Passion Flower, is a beautiful, intelligent, and successful writer, who has been disappointed in a string of unsuccessful emotional and physical relationships. She lives at times in her sexual fantasy world with her ideal 'highway man' that fulfills all her sexual fantasies. Ivan is a successful and handsome college professor who is unfulfilled sexually and emotionally and acts out his loneliness and emotional frustrations in numerous dangerous sexual relationships with his female students. He spends his summers with his close family friend Steve, helping Steve with his horse stable business. Gwen, Steve's girlfriend and friend of Pash, sets Pash up with riding lessons at Steve's stables. It is there that Pash meets Ivan. Immediately when these two lonely, lovely, sexy, unfulfilled and needy people meet, the sparks fly. Passion is not merely a contemporary love story with erotic sex scenes. P. F. Kozak, in a brilliant writing style, shows the reader what lust, sex, passion, need, want, fantasy, fulfillment, friendship, true love and finding your true mate really mean. This reviewer must admit I will usually pick up a contemporary romance and slap it right back down on the shelf because it seems most contemporary romance novels are a disappointment with the love interests, mostly the female, analyzing and analyzing the relationship (with a little bit of sex slipped in to try to make it interesting) to the point where the reader gets so bored you just stop reading because you simply cannot believe there can be characters so stupid and the erotic contemporaries are just sex. P.F. Kozak knows how to pull together the perfect blend of story and erotica. Passion is an intelligent, thought provoking, sexy read. I loved this book, mostly because the reader comes to realize how the loving long term relationship, that one true love with passion and great sex, can grow and exist.
THIS IS A BOOK THAT YOU WILL WANT TO READ FROM FRONT TO BACK WITHOUT STOPPING. WE ARE PASSING IT AROUND THE OFFICE AND THE BOOK IS GETTING WEATHERED. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE ALL THAT HAVE READ THIS BOOK EMAIL OPRAH AND ASK FOR IT TO BE ADDED TO HER BOOK CLUB. ONCE YOU READ IT YOU WILL UNDERSTAND. SO GO AND BUY ONE FOR YOURSELF AND A FRIEND AND PASS IT AROUND THE OFFICE OR YOU MIGHT END UP KEEPING YOURS FOR YOURSELF.
I didn't want the store to end. After reading it the first time a took the weekend and read it again, I was having Ivan and Passion withdrawals. The transitions from Passion and Ivan thoughts are amazing. the relationship between the 2 make me wish i had that type of relationship. can't wait for P.F. Kozak's new book
Neither Pash or the doctor held enough apeal to continue reading. My 6th grader's English papers are better than the writing displayed here. And because of the double first person, scenes are repeated and retold and it becomes tiresome and boring.
Passion enjoys teaching, but also appreciates escaping the classroom for the summer. She also apparently takes immense delight with the literature she teaches as for instance the hunk star of the poem The Highwayman haunts her dreams so vividly she feels concerned because his ¿touch¿ seems so real.------------- Needing to escape her own fantasies as much as the classroom, Pash works at her best friend¿s stable in Shaftesbury while taking up horseback riding. Her instructor Ivan is at the stable as a favor to a friend. When he meets Pash he wants to teach her more than just riding a horse. She fantasizes riding him as he becomes the star of her dreams. However, as they begin to share erotic lessons in love, Ivan hides from Passion that his ¿day¿ job is as a doctor at the university he takes summers off with this year teaching one beautiful author how to ride a thoroughbred.-------------- This erotic contemporary tale of sex and love between academics working at a stable is a hot romance from the moment that Pash passionately dreams of the Highwayman (Alfred Noyes would appreciate Pash¿s vivid description). The story line is torrid in the bedroom, the stable, and a few other locales and with ties that bind. Though the likable support cast ironically feels like peeping tom intruders, fans will immensely gain pleasure from this titillating tale.------------- Harriet Klausner
