Roxanne is stunned when her best friend, Leo, admits his feelings for her—she’s so not going there. Lovers may come and go, but true friends are hard to find. Instead, she enlists his help to sign her up for an online fetish dating site. She immediately meets a man who can help her explore her kinky side, starting with a chat session that leads to the best orgasm of her life. While her body’s satisfied, her mind can’t forget Leo’s confession…
Leo, meanwhile, isn’t giving up so easily. He knows Roxanne like the back of his hand, knows what she needs, and he’s more than equipped to give it to her. Subtle touches, a sexy spanking, the most erotic dessert-eating session ever… Leo is successfully proving that computer nerds can be sexual freaks too—until Roxanne discovers his secret. One that could kill not only a potential relationship, but their longtime friendship as well.
Leo and Roxanne have been best friends for over ten years. Leo is a geek who has had a crush on her but realizes that Roxie does not think of him that way. Roxie decides that her sex life is ‘vanilla’ or boring and she needs something different. Roxie wants to spice up her sex life and she tells this to Leo. Leo shows Roxie this online dating service called 'WhipADate.com', and suggests she sign up. Roxie was excited and nervous but agrees to sign up with Leo’s help.
Leo offers to introduce her to this lifestyle which confirmed for me that Leo felt more than just friendship for Roxie. She of course declined because she didn't want to do anything that would jeopardize their ten year friendship.
After signing up Roxie meets Constantine on the website, and is introduced to the Dom/submissive lifestyle. The characters of Leo and Roxie were engaging, and you really felt a connection to them. The introduction of Constantine made me wonder if this could be the one that she fell for especially since he had such an affect on her, or would he help her see that it was Leo she wanted all along.
The author had me from the first paragraph and did not let me go until the very end. The story was filled with humor and at times I found myself smiling. I rooted for Leo to finally convince Roxie he was the man for her. Overall, this book was a fun read and I look forward to reading more by this author.
