Baring your body is simple–but baring your soul might just change everything…
The last thing Glenna O’Donald expected to stumble upon in a cemetery was a pack of index cards. And not just any cards–each one contains instructions for a seriously kinky, no-holds-barred sexual encounter. Glenna, an over-analytical research assistant by day, is suddenly tempted to conduct some nocturnal experiments of her own. Especially when gorgeous university professor Eric Morris offers to be her lab partner.
Soon Glenna begins meeting with Eric once a week to try out the suggestions that intrigue her most. In between those daring nights of sensual exploration are work days filled with laughter and flirting…until Glenna fears she’s getting in too deep. For all the pleasure she’s giving and receiving, Glenna wants more than skin-on-skin interaction–and Eric realizes he’s about to lose the intimate connection he didn’t know he needed. Can they find the courage to take this game to the next level?
As hot as it is heartwarming, Christine d’Abo’s fresh, witty novel proves that practice makes perfect, and that some games are worth playing…
If you don’t know already… I fell in love with Christine’s erotica in 30 Days. (click for review). She was a new-to-me author and I adored the premise of 30 Days. I instantly clicked Request on NetGalley and it became mine! I gobbled it up like nobody’s business. 😉
My enthusiasm for Christine has not dwindled. A couple months ago, I saw Submissive Seductions on NetGalley. (click for review). I knew I had to have it. Once again, I was not disappointed.
30 Nights is the third book I have read by Christine and there is no doubt that she has made it into my Top Ten Favorite Authors list. This book was so fresh and real, and I could feel Glenna’s skepticism towards a new adventure. And who doesn’t love the brooding, mysterious male lead? Mmm. Glenna seems like the type of character who is super shy, super conservative. As the story went on, I was glad to see she was getting out of her shell. The only thing that annoyed me about Glenna was that she was being treated like a doormat by her uncool boss and she refused to see so. Ugh!
I enjoyed the romantic aspect between Glenna and Eric. They were both scared to take a chance, and I can completely relate to that. I thought they both were well developed and their backgrounds were a tad predictable, but I enjoy that in books. However, it did surprise me to find out the detail about his ex… I also enjoy when a book takes me by surprise. 😀
Talking about surprises, I would love to hear more about Jasmine. Maybe in her own book? *wink, wink*. I also loved the appearance from Alyssa. I only wish Glenna could have put two and two together! I can’t help but wonder if there will be a third book in the series… 😉 A fantastic job well done.
*I received a copy from NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.
