Wet with anticipation, Janelle waits in her sexiest attire. She longs for her husband’s return from deployment in Afghanistan. When he arrives, she has a surprise for him. But she isn’t the only one with something to share.
Will this homecoming be as fulfilling as she desires?
Though this story is only eleven pages, the passionate scene sets a fast pace and brings a culmination of joy and satisfaction for a soldier’s return. There is no time for tears or regrets as the characters come to life in a flash and make the most of their time together. You will get a sense of the bond between them right off the bat.
What better way to greet her husband of seven years than with a teddy and pure passion. The moment Janelle saw him walk in the door she jumped him, welcoming him home with love. The relationship between the two, though long distance in the past, was thrilling as Ava Delany set a story that makes your heart speed up a pace.
Returning from the military, Ron finds his wife waiting for him in the hallway and doesn’t second guess but leaps into a lustful love session on the couch. It’s obvious he missed her as he can’t wait to truly come home by sinking deep within her. His gift to her, brings her great joy and made this reader sigh with happiness.
Ava Delany has great potential as an author, though the story was way too short. Once the engines revved up, it was done, the happily ever after coming much too soon. If you want a very quick read, this story will satisfy you. The only thing I’d change is to add …‘to be continued’.
This story gets 4 Cherries and heartfelt wishes that the author expand her story-telling, as she’s great at it.
