Annie and Scott are in lust. The sex is perfect. The orgasms, sublime.
Problem is, Scott’s idea of commitment is a diamond ring to hold on to his lover. Annie adores her man but she belongs to no one and if he hasn’t worked that out then maybe Scott’s not for her.
After months of separation the two lovers reunite. The sex is as hot as ever but has her man finally realized that no diamond is needed to bind lovers as one?
Annie and Scott are in the perfect relationship, well at least Annie thinks so but Scott wants more…a commitment with a ring.
This short story was unique in that most of the time it’s the hero’s failure to commit to a relationship that breaks them up. However, this time it was the heroine’s. She’s an independent woman and has everything she needs. You can understand her point of view but the hero is portrayed as such a sweet guy, you start rooting for him. The author does a great job making us think they’ve broken up for good and that there’s no way these two can meet middle ground.
The dialogue is snappy and sounds real. It’s not easy writing a solid story in just 18 pages but Halligan handled it well. The sex scenes are very hot and I really liked the ending.
If you like short, hot sexy reads Always You is a good pick.
