This steamy romance is written by Felicity Rose. I got to know about her through Instagram and she is such a sweetheart. It was my first novel of her and my God! what’s not to love in it. It was beautifully written with a fast moving story. It was really amazing to see how the author has put all the good things about love with a touch of kink in a book. The characters, the description and the structure of story is well build. Even the description of intimate scenes is so keen and luxurious and it will make you experience it all 😉 For the debute novel, I think it was a kickass start for the author to present such a steamy romance. The chemistry between characters is so engaging that you don’t want to put this book aside for a minute. You see their ups and downs throughout the book and when you finish it, it kills you to wait for the 2nd part of this book. I think it should be illegal to leave readers hanging ._.
The story revolves around two main characters Saskia and Jim who are both ambitious about their careers. Saskia owned a bookstore and was an avid bookreader since childhood (which was interesting for me obviously 😉 ). It was her dream to run a bookstore in order to stay close to her passion for books. She had been into some relationships before but none on them last long and she was actually waiting for “the one”. On the other hand, Jim was an amazing chef and owned a deli. Saskia used to visit his deli daily for her lunch and for dessert she got to see him because she had a major crush on him for a very long time. As she didn’t know if he feels the same about her or not so she didn’t make the first move. Also when she saw another girl working in the deli and flirtling with Jim, she kinda backed off too. But when they met in a bar and exchanged their numbers the story began to take it’s pace. From there on, the heat was radiating from the book 😀
Later we found out that Jim also felt the same Saskia and he was eager to meet her outside the deli and be with her. Soon they were falling in love with each other and it was all rainbows and sunshine in the story. Jim also introduced her to his fantacies and let her express hers as well and together they begin to experience different new things and pretty much enjoyed everything. So we see them both travelling down their kinky road and discovered “The Real Thing”. Their relationship grew stronger day by day with the help of passion, fun, love, laughter. they both introduced each other to their families. Even moved in together untill it was the time for the book to end. And the end was only heartbreaking thing about this book. Like you just see Saskia being heartbroken and there seemed to be no way out for her like she was actually doomed. And it was so sad.
In the end, I would definitely recommend this to everyone but before you read it, make sure you’re in the mood to read an erotica because this one is VERY intense. The curiosity for the sequel is uplifted since I have finished this book. But overall it is included in my good books 😀
My favorite quote from this book was “What is the real thing? I thought about this a lot. It’s that feeling you get when you’re with someone, that happiness that they fill you with just by looking at their face, or being in their company”
