When Imogen and Adam meet in the shadowy dark of their local movie theatre every month, they are both looking for nothing more than quick, hot sex: a fantasy come to life. Their February meeting takes a surprise turn when they discover that perhaps there is more to their relationship than just sex and the next month builds into something neither one of them expected.

A movie, dim lighting, lingering kisses, and...fizzy soda?

This book blisters with heat. The characters have a white hot animal attraction that can only be fulfilled at the movie theater. It’s an interesting premise and certainly written with heat in mind. I liked the idea of two lovers meeting at the theater. The flickering lights of the picture illuminating their actions and the passion on the screen mirroring the passion in the seats. It’s an intriguing idea to translate into a story.

As I’ve said, Adam and Imogen have a white hot attraction. I realize this is a short story but there were a couple things I felt it lacked. A short story means a small word count and only so many pages to get the story across. Lauren Hawkeye certainly packs lots of heat into a mere twenty-six pages. At the same time, it seems rushed. I wanted to know more about the characters. Much of it is told rather than shown and I felt a disconnect with the protagonists. I understood their attraction, but I had a hard time buying into the blossoming feelings. Another thing that took me out of the story was a few occurrences of repetition. I get that the actions happen the same time every month, but when the wording was exactly the same, exact same ripped me from the story. I actually checked to make sure I wasn’t imagining things.

With those few niggles mentioned, I have to say this story is chock full of sex and heat that made me turn the fan on high. If you’re looking for something to titillate, then this is the book for you. The scene with the soap...I can’t get it out of my head.

If you’re looking for a heated read, look no further. Feature Attraction is the book for you.
