LIBERATING LACEY has become one of my favorite contemporary erotic romances ever!After a recent divorce, Lacey is now on the hunt or something that will bring back the heat into her life. She is successful and well-educated, but her life seemed to be at a standstill. One night she goes to Buff, a bar where she hopes to find a hottie to bring home.
This is where lucky Lacey meets Hunter Andersen – Cut the swoons, the drooling, and the jaw-dropping because hello mama, Hunter is the hottest thing to hit my ereader! Right from the get-go, I was in lust with Hunter. He oozed sex appeal and dominated this book. I was floored by his character. He had all the qualities that an erotic romance hero should have. He has the sexy job (He’s a cop). He has the sexy ride (He drives a motorcycle). But the best thing about him is that he is his own vulnerability. Because of his younger age and status, he doesn’t believe he is good enough to be with Lacey. He struggles with this for the entire book and I think it’s a great way to show another side to him that makes me love him even more.
Speaking of sex scenes, they are abundant and steamy as hell! After a particularly sexy coupling against an SUV in Buff’s parking lot, the sexiness continues until you’re hotter than the sun.
This was my first book by Anne Calhoun and it definitely won’t be the last. I loved her writing style and her voice. The story just seemed to flow very well and I thought that Calhoun did a fantastic job of bringing two very different people together in a way that was sexy and still very believable.Next up I’ve got WHAT SHE NEEDS on my reading list. Lots of friends have suggested I read this sexy short, and since I loved this one I’m happy to indulge. I can’t wait to read more of Anne Calhoun!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
