Review by Holly

What would you do if your husband cornered you one day and asked you to fill out a list asking for your thoughts on every sex act under the sun? Would you think “Fun! I can steal some of these ideas!” or would you get scared that he’s trying to tell you something? That maybe your sex life isn’t spicy enough for him, that he wants more?

Soon after Mia McIntyre completes her list and hands it out to her husband, her life gets turned upside down. At first it’s fun. A lot of fun. Their fantasies are suddenly becoming reality and they both get a kick out of it.

But when other people start getting involved, things turn complicated. Mia pushes on, intent on pleasing Kevin. She loves him after all and she’d do anything for him…wouldn’t she?

Kevin is a hot and hunky pro football player. His wife, Mia, is nothing like the women he used to be seen with. When Kevin gives her the List-a list of sexual activities that can be answered Yes, No or Maybe, she believes it is because he is unhappy with her. She has always been a bit insecure, and wants to do whatever it takes to please Kevin.

Kevin doesn’t realize how she feels, and just wants her to be more outgoing. He sees a beautiful and vivacious woman when he looks at Mia, but when she looks in the mirror, she sees a slightly overweight and shy woman, afraid that she is losing the man she loves. So she agrees to some of the suggestions on the list, like Kevin’s teammate Charlie’s sex party, and that’s when the trouble starts. Can Mia and Kevin get past their misunderstandings, or will her insecurity be the end of everything?

Emma Hillman has perfectly captured the essence of the shy and insecure Mia, the woman who will do anything to keep her man happy. And Kevin is the image of the man who thinks that because he thinks she’s beautiful and perfect, she should believe what he tells her. When Nick shows up and rescues Mia, it sets the stage for the hottest ménage, and helps Mia start to believe a bit more in herself.

There are some really fun escapades here, like the nurse scene, and one or two surprises that I didn’t see coming. For a while, it looks like this relationship is in trouble, but the happy ever after, when it happens, is well worth the wait. This is a terrific and realistic story, and I enjoyed it very much. But be sure to keep your fan on, because this one gets hot!
