Before reading this steamy book, you need to do a few things:

1. Turn down the air conditioner or open a few windows - the breeze will help.

2. Get a pitcher of your favorite cold beverage - you will need to cool off.

3. Do any important chores - because you won’t be putting this book down!

Packed With Pleasure is one of the hottest Blazes that I have read in recent memory, and should come packed in dry ice! This book sizzles from cover to cover. First we meet Eden Montgomery, a gift basket designer. But these are no ordinary gift baskets - these are one-of-a-kind erotic gift selections, designed to delight and entice the recipients into new and daring sexual adventures. Eden’s business has really soared, much to her delight - and her dismay, as her creativity is starting to wane. Her problem is that the success has been so demanding that she hasn’t had a love life of her own. Determined to demolish her mental block, Eden is delighted when a handsome stranger passing by the store decides to step inside her world of sensual pleasures. One look at him and her imagination has started taking her into new uncharted territory. Is she brave enough to act on her first impressions?

Alec Ramsey has finally located the shop that his sister recommended. Intent on getting his partner a unique and memorable wedding gift, Alec stunned by the impact of his surroundings, not to mention the stunning beauty offering her assistance. As the sexual attraction between them crackles with energy, Alec knows that he can’t possibly pass up the opportunity to see where this will lead.

I am not going to spoil the story by giving away too many of the details about Eden and Alec’s passionate encounters. Let’s just say that author Lori Wilde has made new inroads into the definition of “inventive.” This couple knows how to burn up the sheets. They also have some unresolved personal issues about intimacy and acceptance that fit perfectly with their characters. I enjoyed seeing how they worked through their problems almost as much as I loved their creative encounters.
