Masturbating can be so much fun—especially when you have a one-man audience. Addison loves sex. More importantly, she loves her body and isn’t afraid to make it sing. Add a little voyeurism and it’s totally erotic.

Dante’s muse has stalled—until his sexy neighbor starts seducing him. Through her bedroom window, he watches as her hands caress her tantalizing skin. It’s like something out of a strip club, with his very own personal view. Thanks to this beauty, he’s drawing like wildfire. To thank Addison, Dante sends her an invitation for a single night together. That night may encourages them to draw a new future…together.

Attention! The muse has officially entered the building and is about to take off all her clothes. That is all.

Now that I truly have your attention, I can tell you about the book I just read, Dante’s Desire. Talk about a hot time in the ‘ole studio tonight. Whew! I needed a fan to get through this one. It opens with heat and doesn’t let up ‘til the last page.

Amber Skyze has created a story with characters I fell in love with immediately and a world I want to visit again and again. Dante is one yummy artist. Had I had guys like him around when I was in art school....let’s say I’d have loved for this to be me.

Yes, Dante is a hunk. He’s also got manners — not always prevalent in romance heroes. Yes, I love a mannered man, but too many times they come off as brooding and brutish. Dante is the opposite (even for an artist) and it’s refreshing. Even when he’s bad and coarse, it’s so good.

My one issue was Addison. No, not the masturbation. Heck, that was hot to read about. I loved her uninhibited personality. What took a while for me to like about her was her tendency to say one thing and do the opposite and then to fly off the handle. Now, don’t get me wrong. Both reactions are totally human and understandable. She put herself into a situation where it could get ugly quick. I commended her sense of self preservation, I just wish she’d approached it from a different angle. We all make mistakes and some are less intrusive than others. She’s human, which I loved, and she made mistakes, so I could identify with her. It made me think about her far after the book closed. So really, I got emotionally involved and that’s a mark of a good book.

Kudos to Ms. Skyze.

If you want a story that is white hot and quick, then you need to pick up a copy of Dante’s Desire. I give this book 4 cherries.
