Alana MacGregor craves excitement, but when her sometimes lover dumps her at a popular sex club, she wonders if she’s outgrown her live-fast-and-recover-later lifestyle. The last thing she expects is to run into the nerdy guy she rebuffed in high school—or for him to rock her world in ways no other man ever has.
Hot on the trail of a story, Carter Nicholas can’t believe his luck at encountering the one woman he’s never forgotten. He’s come a long way from being a wall-hugging geek. Now he gets all A’s between the sheets. But can he convince Alana he’s her sure ticket to an unforgettable night—and maybe much more?
When Alana McGregor's on-again lover suddenly becomes off-again, she’s ready to leave the sex club and make this a forgettable night until she runs into Carter Nicholas, the guy she used to make another guy jealous back in high school. Carter aka Nicky is a reporter doing a story (not an exposé) on the sex club. Apparently he’s not into holding grudges but making the best of a golden opportunity to get in on what he couldn’t back then.
Ms. Quinn always creates some of the best sexual tension in her stories and this book is no different. Although the names of her characters were not what I was expecting, with Alana being Mac and Carter being Nicky, once I got the names straight, I really got into the story. The sexual chemistry between them jumped off the page, regardless of their history.
The only problem I had with the story is that she didn’t take us through the full voyeuristic experience. She started us out at the beginning but she used the sex club only as a meeting place past the first explosive scene where they meet. The sex was hot and at the end of the book, I kept hitting the forward button, hoping there would be more.
Ms. Quinn scores again with fabulously well rounded characters that left me wanting a future peek into their lives. I look forward to reading more books from her in the future.
