Oh Yum! - Impulsive Pleasures
by KyAnn Waters
Jamie's daughter is getting married and now Jamie has to endure a weekend with her ex-husband and his new wife, the home-wrecking trollop. Jamie can be nice…yeah right. The asshole doesn't deserve nice. However, Jamie's bitterness just might be sweetened when young and sexy best man Mark Bentley arrives for the rehearsal dinner. Oh Yum! He might prove to be just the distraction Jamie needs. And if the ex has a problem with it, good.
Only Mark isn't interested in a little flirtation with the mother of the bride. He'd like the cougar to scratch her nails down his back. Will she invite him into her bed…or will he have to fuck her on the floor?
Impulsive Pleasures delivers what I’ve come to expect from the talent of KyAnn Waters.
What could have easily slipped into an unemotional sexual encounter ended up being a story of realized dreams and the wonder of discovering that it is truly never too late to find love.
Jamie is the mother of the bride and a woman burned. I found her to be a character I could identify with and yet she is a woman more courageous than I. Taking the bull by the horns (a young bull at that) and going after what she wants is a very risky step to take when she’s not sure about future ramifications. That means taking stock in her self-truth; does she have the confidence, the will and the fortitude to see it through? Does she think she still has what it takes to intrigue a man or has her ex-husband had the best from her that she can never get back? Pretty heavy stuff and yet, I was very glad to see Jamie stand up for herself. I enjoyed seeing her flex her emotional muscles and prove to herself and others her own personal growth.
Mark is a man who presents Jamie with the opportunity to see just how far she’s grown, how far she’s healed and how far she’s willing to go to disprove what her ex-husband says about her and prove to herself that she does have what it takes. I liked how Ms. Waters wrote the scene where Mark has an epiphany about Jamie – what makes her different than all the other women at the rehearsal dinner. He is a wonderful character, virile, strong -- and I really got a kick out of his interactions with the Ex. I also cheered Mark’s decision about who and what to tell about a very sensitive topic, despite Jamie’s worry. He is a man who knows how to take care of the woman he cares for. Doesn’t that sound dreamy?
I liked reading about how two people with different goals and agendas ended up making a surprise journey that not only brought them together but took them into deeper emotional depths. I laud Mark’s pursuit of Jamie; it’s romantic, direct and passionate. And the HEA left me with no doubts that Marc is perfect for Jaime.
If you enjoy touching and empowering stories of an older woman being pursued by an earnest younger man, then Impulsive Pleasures delivers with passion and style.
