Sexy Summer Saturdays is a weekly post that Attack the Stacks, Book Love, Hackaroos Reviews, Sims-Sational Books, The Autumn Review, and The Bookish Babe created for fun, to spread the word about sizzling summer reads.
I am so very excited to be a part of this meme. Especially with all my blogger friends joining me. This is going to be a hot summer so why not make it hotter with some sexy reads?
All you have to do to join in the fun is pick a super sexy read and post your review on Saturday during the summer.
It’s all in fun and games…..the Sex Games that is! *cackles*
For my very first Sexy Summer Saturday (SSS for short or the Triple S), is:
Makenna James thinks her day can’t get any worse, until she finds herself stuck in a pitch-black elevator with a complete stranger. Distracted by a phone call and juggling too much stuff, the pin-striped accountant caught only a glimpse of a dragon tattoo on his hand before the lights went out.
Caden Grayson is amused when a redhead literally falls at his feet. His amusement turns to panic when the power fails. Despite his piercings, tats, and vicious scar, he’s terrified of the dark and confined spaces. Now, he’s trapped in his own worst nightmare.
To fight fear, they must both reach out and open up. With no preconceived notions based on looks to hold them back, they discover just how much they have in common. In the warming darkness, attraction grows and sparks fly, but will they feel the same when the lights come back on?
So this book was actually told by both character’s POV. Which made it really interesting. And made it a little bit hotter as well. Which was awesome. It’s really cool to see a guy’s POV once in a while. It’s also quite an experience to read from a guy’s POV in an erotica book.
It starts off from Makenna’s POV when she’s trying to catch the elevator in her office building. All she sees is a tattooed hand hold open the door before she scrambles to get in. She’s had one hell of a day so far so she’s relieved when a good samaritan holds the door for her.
Caden is said good samaritan and he only catches Makenna’s red hair. Oh, and her tight little bum ;-). He’s not a big fan of small confined places so he just bides his time in the elevator.
Then the lights go out and they’re stuck.
What will happen when the lights go out?
What did I think?
I actually thought the storyline and idea were really cute, if a bit cheesy. But cute nonetheless. I thought it was adorable idea to meet in a dark elevator and base your attraction on personality and voice alone.
Makes it interesting indeed.
Caden and Makenna make an instant connection and they make each other feel better about being in the confined area for hours on end.
Kaye adds just the amount of comedy that keeps things light at first:
Why isn’t he saying anything? Maybe he’s shy. Or maybe you shocked and awed him with you graceful entrance, elegant nervous breakdown, and sexy snorting. Yeah, clearly that’s it.
Once they get over the initial ‘weirdness’ of being alone together, they both find that the instant connection is not only emotionally, but physically as well.
And boy do things get physical….
Even though I found the story a little bit wanting, I filled that wanting with some of the HOTTEST SEX SCENES I’ve read. Seriously. I’ve read some erotica but not many. But this book’s hawt scenes were…….holy frack *fans self*
What I loved about the scenes is that it wasn’t sugar coated. It was REAL. Like FOR REALZ! I’ve never read sexier scenes than I have with this.
He pulled himself closer and slid his knee between her legs, keeping her from twisting he back the way she’d been. Not that she’d really noticed. Caden sucked the small diamond stud piercing on her ear lobe into his mouth as his right hand ghosted over her body and settled on the hip wrapped around him.
*fans self* take a minute….let that sink in…..ok…..
No worries….it’s not all about the sex (although that is a major highlight), but there are emotional spots and you can see that there really is a connection.
Overall I’d read this again because it really is cute. I read this in about 2-3 hours. If you want a cute, hot, read, pick this up.
When she blushed, his lips yearned to taste the heat of it on her cheeks. Though, he knew if he touched her, he wouldn’t be able to stop.
