Between vodkas and dance moves she probably shouldn't be doing in public, never mind on a podium, she meets him.
She's never had a one night stand before, and to have one is on her list of things to experience in her life.
Not only that, but the chemistry is off the charts.
She's going home with this man, and she's not going to regret it when she leaves him in the morning.
Or at least that's what she thinks.

3.25 stars---THE LIST by Chantal Fernando is a stand alone, erotic romance story line that follows a few years in the life of our leading couple –Taye and Eli. Told from first person point of view (Taye) Taye wants to be a romance author but our heroine is a bit of an introvert when it comes to men and relationships. A night out with friends finds Taye focusing on the sexy Eli, a man who is only in town for a short time, but a man who is everything that Taye has been looking (for). Hoping to check off her sexual bucket list of things to do, Taye opts for a one night stand that turns into something more. What ensues is the on again, off again relationship between two people on differing paths, and with different expectations in life. THE LIST follows our heroine as she struggles to keep her feelings in check when it comes to the man that calls to her heart. Eli never promised forever, in fact, he never promised more than a one-night stand, but attraction is what it is, and our transient and world traveling hero continues to make an occasional appearance in our heroine’s life rendering Taye pining for a man who isn’t capable of anything more. The $ex scenes are intimate; the attraction is immediate but something felt off in the story line presentation-a story that was ‘told without an invitation to come inside’ The first person perspective faltered with THE LIST. The presentation felt more like a series of journal entries; a recounting of events such that the emotion was absent, and the reader is but a remote viewer of events. There are too many details missing; we know very little about the leading characters; the lack of information left me wanting….more. I am a big fan of the author’s Wind Dragon MC series but THE LIST missed the mark. Chantal Fernando states that some of the events in the book are fictional although loosely based on a real story. I always have difficulty with books based on real-life events because the ‘background information’ and the colorful events are likely to be altered such that they are no longer recognizable and the real emotion is missing. I am hoping the real-life heroine did find her HEA with or without her Eli.
