L’Amour, Nelle. That Man 1 (That Man Trilogy)

Every now and then a woman needs a bit of a lemony read. A story about a fit guy and a sexy woman getting together and what’s nicer than the prelude to a great love story?

“I hope you don’t mind, but I’m playing a game of Truth or Dare, and I have to kiss you.” God, how ridiculous I must sound and look with my blindfold.
I took my victim’s silence as a sign he was willing to play along. Okay, here goes. Clutching his angular jaw between my hands, I bent down to kiss him. But before I could latch my lips onto his, he rose and, in one swift move, crashed his lips onto mine.
Oh. My. God. A heat wave shot through me. It was one of those kisses like in a movie. Fierce, delicious, passionate. Opened mouth and oh so consuming. And he tasted divine—the sweet taste of champagne lacing his breath. He bit my upper lip, forcing me to part them, and plunged his warm, velvety tongue inside my mouth. His tongue instantly found mine and they entwined, dancing like they’d been together forever. He tugged hard on my ponytail, yanking back my head, and coiled it around his hand, tearing at my roots. The delicious pain mixed with the delicious pleasure of his kiss, sending a rush of erotic sensations through me. Every nerve ending was a sparking fuse. My breathing grew shallow. Already lightheaded, I was now borderline delirious. I’d never been kissed by a man like this before. I didn’t want him to stop. ”

21522856I found this book in my mom’s iPad and I had a read during a connection flight and I must say that I found it like-able on two counts:
1. it presents an insight onto the TV porn (sorry, adult entertainment) industry and daytime/ nighttime shows creation, actor casting and planning
2. the two characters are hot headed and perfect for each other. There is humor in the book and I found myself chuckling at different intervals. The chemistry between them, while described in often-raunchy passages, is genuine and while it reminds you of 50 shades of grey in points, it has none of the domination aspects going on.

Warning: contains lemon. For those of you who are unfamiliar with lemon – it’s implied rape or very adult situations, so beware of tension growing towards the end of the book.

All in all, a good read, especially for a flight. On the plus side
