Shelves: contemporary , erotic I dont know about all of you, but when it comes to erotic romance, I read a lot of so-so books before I find a few gems that are truly worth the reading time. Sort of like kissing a lot of frogs before you find that prince. What Ive found is the majority of erotic reads arent balanced between the hot and steamy sex and an intriguing and emotional story.
Joely Sue Burkhart is the first in quite a long time to be in that very sparsely populated category for me. The first thing that stands out in this book is that Ms. Burkhart makes me feel for her characters. I want to know more about them. Their circumstances immediately pull me into their lives and I care.
But that dream was put on the back burner while she became an attorney representing the dregs of society. Her guilt was enough to break her, but when Elias also seemed to blame her and he walked out on their relationship, it was too much for Vicki. She quit her high-paying job, retreated into her now more private life and began to design the line of clothes that has always lived within her.
Having not seen Elias in months, Vicki is getting along. Jesse was a mainstay at the park she frequented when things got a little rough in the courtroom. That last day with all the emotional turmoil, Jesse is the one she ran to, the one who held her as she cried. She does have him checked out. By calling Elias. Jesse, meet Elias. As he rams the young man into the wall, cuffing him, ready to cart him off to jail.
Jesse, of course, has loved Vicki all along, her kindness to a homeless man the start of it all. Elias is jealous as all get-out when he realizes Vicki wants to keep Jesse, but he knows he has no right to be because of his recent behavior.
Vicki loves Elias, but her feelings for Jesse surprise her and she has no intention of giving them — or him — up. Between these two men, Vicki learns a lot about herself she never knew. So she heads to big brother, Victor, who is a sadist. I love how Elias and Jesse have their own ways of loving and protecting Vicki.
Both very different in methods but alike with a common goal.
