When Kallie’s fairytale life turned into a nightmare, she dealt with the stress in a way she never would have imagined. For too long she’s yearned to live life outside the box, experience things she has always been too afraid to try.
Becoming every man’s fantasy as a stripper drives away the constant ache within and makes her feel beautiful again. She discovers her dark side and sets out to explore her secret desires.
Seth Masterton is a rising star in the corporate world and he is everything Kallie has ever wanted. He’s watched all Kallie’s performances and never hides his lust for her. She knows it is time to face her demons and make some changes in her life. Maybe this possessive man is all she really needs. Tonight, she’ll find out.
Sometimes the thing we want the most is the one thing we already have but can’t see the forest for the trees. So what do you do when you get a second chance? Go for it.
Such is the story of Kallie Revealed. Mel Tescho wrote an intriguing novel about two people who are totally in love, but the strains of life tore things apart. Although this is a short story, I really felt like I was there with Kallie and Seth. The sights, smells, and sounds of the gentleman’s club were vivid.
I liked the bit if mystique in this story as well. Things didn’t quite progress as I expected and it was refreshing. I liked that Kallie wanted to be her own person and had struggles, such as the battle with the credit card. I could totally relate because there are lots of times when you want to shop and that plastic is darned alluring, but reality won’t let you. It was a nice touch. But, I had a hard time liking her because I felt she came across as very selfish when she didn’t get things to go her way. I liked how she grew through the story, but I wanted to see the transformation a bit earlier.
Seth, though the favorite character of mine, wasn’t a martyr. He had his own issues. He wanted to make her happy, even if it meant his own demise. I had to give him credit for being so selfless, but there were times when I wanted him to strengthen his backbone and give her the what-for. Still, I felt his love for her and understood why he acted as he did.
If you want a story with red-hot love scenes and some smokin’ hot F/F scenes, then you need to read Kallie Revealed. I give this story 3 cherries.
