What a fun premise! Two virgins in the back of a Mustang and one unsatisfying night that haunts both of them for ten years. Then Dustin Ramsey returns to find Erica Mann and set matters straight!

Of course there is more going on — a plot involving a newsletter, a sexual advice column, and a business struggling for survival, but what is really happening is a lot of very hot sex between Dustin and Erica. They sure make up for that one disastrous night ten years before.

What makes this novel extra special is watching the characters change as the intensity of their affair goes beyond the writhing between the sheets (or wherever the mood catches them) and into the realm of a deeper affection that scares the heck out of both of them. Erica is so very committed to her course in life that she almost loses track of what’s really important. Dustin is afraid to admit that he’s toppled head over heels into love with the woman he merely wanted to impress.

Of course the sex plays a central role, this is a Harlequin Blaze, after all. And it’s quite something, because Dustin is nothing if not inventive. You’ll never look at a fruit bowl the same way again, and if you happen to have a truck with a King cab, well.... But in spite of all the “Kama Sutra” high jinks, at the root of all the interaction is love. A growing, warming, scary kind of forever love that adds such a special dimension to any relationship, whether casual, sexual or platonic! This book captures that emotion perfectly, and is a great addition to your Blaze collection.
