With the provocative opening , the book had a lot to live up to but I felt it fulfilled its promise. I must admit that part of my appreciation for the story may be because of the character tropes presented.
This was consistently displayed throughout the story. Even when Joy was doing things that were outside her comfort zone such as allowing Everett liberties in a public space, she was making a deliberate conscious choice. Joy was a realist, that much could be said about her. Life had taught her again and again that escape from an often harsh world was not a possibility.
But life could be beautiful, too, and exciting, even if those moments were ephemeral. She followed Everett into a warm summer night. The long, black limousine glided up to the curb like a magical carriage.
Everett glanced back at her. A lock of hair had fallen onto his forehead. He smiled, and she smiled back. When she was diagnosed with cancer herself she withdrew from her friends and family, moving to Chicago to undergo treatment, heal, and wait. Joy does not want any one to suffer the pain she did while her mother was dying. This creates the big conflict.
As Joy becomes more emotionally attached to Everett, her fear of causing his pain increases proportionally until that fear overcomes her. What was wrong with her? Why did she feel so raw every time he made love to her? It felt almost unbearably good to give in to the elemental lust he inspired in her, but afterward she felt like a walking exposed nerve. For some stupid, inexplicable reason, it reminded her of making eye contact with other cancer patients she randomly encountered during her chemo.
Usually, they dropped their gazes. Joy understood. It was all she could take to manage her own survival. There is definitely a lot of fantasy occurring in this book from Everett the movie star falling in love with Joy the art teacher to their immediate physical connection; yet enough of it is believable and grounded. Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries and publishes with Berkley and Montlake and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them.
Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane dearauthor dot com.
I like Ms. I pre-ordered this based on the chapter you posted a few weeks ago. I should get it tomorrow and I cannot wait to dive in. From what she had posted the publisher came to her with the serial format because of the author Faulks? I loved it so much I read it twice! I read the first three stories in this series over the past couple of weeks. They were a whole lot of meh and, by the time I was done, I started thinking of the heroines as the Hoover Girls.
Still, Everett and his damned fashion sense had me intrigued in the first book. We do not purchase all the books we review here.

REVIEW: Exposed to You by Beth Kery
Losing control is just the beginning…. A reserved and careful art teacher, Joy would never forget it. Little did she know, the man with whom she shared that lightning bolt of lust was star Everett Hughes. For Everett, women and sex came as easily as fame.

I liked this book, I didn't love it. The love story between Joy and Everett is so damn sweet. I loved it. Maybe he is a bit too perfect, though. He is all sugar and love, but in the bedroom he is This book is part of a series called One Night of Passion. They are stand alone books but you get more of couples you have read about.
