It’s simple: I NEED a Vinter of my own.I will always remember this as my first erotica romance novel I’ve ever read and I have reread this, some parts more than others (I’m sure you know which parts I’m talking about). I am a huge fan of Lissa Matthews. I love that she is able to write such engaging, erotic stories in just a short amount of words. Vinter is definitely one of my all-time favourite heroes and if you read Simple Needs, you will understand why. Ms. Matthews introduced me into the erotica romance world and Vinter popped my erotica romance cherry, so to speak. Now, I’ll get into what I thought about this amazing book!

This short story is HOT HOT HOT! When Elise gets dumped via text message by a douche, she does her sulking in a bar (I mean, where else is there to go?). When a hot tattooed and pierced man approaches her and offers to “take care of her”, Elise is more than willing to forget the jerk and move on.

Since it is a short story, everything moves at a very fast-pace(including the sex). Elise learns to let go of her sexual inhibitions and really go for it with Vinter. And Vinter is finding that Elise’s plus-size figure is too tempting to resist.

Vinter is hella sexy and his piercing fetish is something that a lot of girls would drool over. He’s the ultimate bad boy. And all I have to say is, I want one.

And I have to mention the phone scene. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about because I could not get that scene out of my head! This is revenge at its finest and I am always pleased to read this scene. You go, girl!

Simple Need is too sexy for words. Just read it, you definitely won’t forget Vinter’s name after this.

Favourite Quote:
“By morning you won’t remember his name and you won’t want to forget mine.”
