Review by Hibiscus
Stacia Allen loves her job and has no desire to lose it. But she’s been “friends with benefits” with Jason Montano for months… and he’s her boss. Now he says he wants to “talk” about their arrangement.
Jason has a confession to make. He’s in love with Stacia… and he’s a telepath. To even the playing field, he plans to give her a family heirloom that will let her read his mind in return and also see images he projects. Oh, the sexy possibilities!
The mind is a powerful thing and it is all so true in this delightful story of telepaths and mental sex. Ms. Illyria creates the fascinating world of Orion Delta 5 set in the future. The details of the planet, from hover crafts to a blue-purple skies had me believing I was residing there.
My favorite character, for obvious reasons, is Jason Montano. Flowing platinum blond hair, beautiful blue eyes and a body that doesn’t quit is all the reason I needed to wish Jason was my boss. After serving five years in the Universal Military, Jason was ready to settle down. I could tell that he was very cautious with revealing everything to Stacia as he kept putting off having her meet his mother and telling her about his telepathic powers. When he finally confesses his love, he decides to tell Stacia his secrets.
There is not a lot about the character of Anasticia Allen. She seemed a little timid to me as she ran from any kind of confrontation, real or imagined. I was glad when she stood up to Jason’s mother when she declared her love for Jason.
The best part of this story is the jewelry. There are three pieces that the Montano family has. The ring has powers which are unknown; the bracelet creates illusions and the necklace increases telepathic connection. I loved when Jason gave Stacia the necklace. The sexual scenes were very hot from the shower and bedroom to the office but when the necklace was introduced, can I just say I needed a paramedic. The whole boardroom meeting had me rolling with laughter and burning up from the scorching heat.
Jason Montano can mess with my mind anytime he wants and I hope after reading this delightful story, you’ll agree. I can’t wait to read the next story in the Family Heirlooms Series.
