When a naked guy turns up in Mae’s back garden, she can’t decide if he’s crazy or sent from heaven. He can’t remember his name, or where he’s from, but he seems to know one thing for certain- Mae is in need of some hot loving, and fast.
However, the more he persuades her to let go and give in, the more she finds herself believing that she’s met him before. But childhood games with a boy who she’s sure had wings on his back are giving way to her deepest sexual fantasies, and dreams of another world entirely are not far behind…
What’s a girl to do when a hunky man takes a naked run through her field? Let him go? Call the cops? Or get him help? I guess you need to read Tigerlily to find out what happens next.
When I saw the title for this book, I knew I had to review it. Kismet, I guess. And I wasn’t let down. Ms. Stein creates a world where the hunky man is exactly who I want running through my back field. Yeah, I’d go out to give him aid and comfort. I felt like I was there with Mae trying to figure out where “Sam” had come from and who exactly he was.
I liked Mae. She’s got some emotional baggage, but who doesn’t? She’s been through a rough stretch and, like many people, she’s ready to come out of it. I liked her growth through the story. She’s not at all sure about this mystery man, but the good Samaritan in her can’t let him suffer.
Although I wanted a bit more info on “Sam”, I liked him as a character. His tendency to just stand in front of her in all his naked glory cracked me up and made me wonder where I could find a “Sam” of my own.
I think my favorite part is the condom. I know, that sounds odd, but I mean the scene with the condom. He has no idea what one is and his confusion when she sheaths him had me in stitches. This is one story that will stay with me.
If you want a story with bittersweet moments, white-hot sex, and a hero that’s yummy, you need to read Tigerlily. I give this story four cherries.
