My Review

I enjoyed the story and I actually identified with the characters. I am just married and after waiting ten years… So the arguments there characters were having felt quite like some I’ve had in the past with my now wife.

The sex was off the chart. The erotic scenes were fantastic and this didn’t surprise me as some of my favourite erotic novels are by Meghan O’Brien and her characters amazing sexual escapades.

My only criticism is it felt too rushed for me. And I think that’s why I normally prefer novels to novellas. As a reader I like to get to know the characters in the book and understand them. I would have liked more of the story from Willa and Rae. Maybe starting the day of the wedding and finishing when they arrive home and back to reality. Did it change them? Would they spend more time concentrating on each other not the wedding and honeymoon is over?

4 stars. A Overall nice little read.
