Thirteen Hours by Meghan O’Brien


Meghan O’Brien knows how to get my heart racing… I loved Thirteen Hours and will be reading it again soon.

Authors Synopsis 

Can you fall in love in 13 hours? It’s her birthday but lonely workaholic Dana Watts is at the office late, drafting a proposal. The very last interruption she expects comes in the form of the most beautiful breasts she has ever seen. These belong to an incredibly hot woman, who is standing in front of her, stripping to music.

My review

If you asked me what my favorite lesbian erotica is this one is No.1. Its like Meghan O’Brien creeps into my head when she writes her novels and that’s why she’s one of my favorite authors in erotica.

Thirteen Hours centers around the lives of two very different women, Dana and Laurel. Dana is workaholic with no social life. She is hiding so far back in the closet she’s almost in Narnia. Laurel is confident and very open about her sexuality. She works as a stripper while she’s in Veterinary school and is hired by Dana’s close work colleague to give her a private dance for her birthday at the office while she’s working late.

It couldn’t go more wrong and while Dana is angrily escorting Laurel from the building they get trapped together in the elevator over night. Can one woman change you life in just thirteen hours?

I’m going to be really honest and say I read this novel quite few months ago and never got round to reviewing it and at the time thought it was good but wasn’t great. I am now eating my words and wondering where my head was at because I’ve just reread to review and I actually really liked it. A lot actually!

To start with both the characters are so loveable… Maybe not Dana in first few chapters but by the end she had surpassed my expectations. This book shows how a in first time relationships (and new relationships to) you have to learn from each other what works and both these woman learn the art of love together in a very heart felt way.

Don’t get me wrong the main thing in this book that got my heart racing was the sex scenes. My mouth is still agape from the first time I read the book and I wasn’t wrong in that instance because oh my it’s HOT! I can’t even give you my favorites because they are all so well written and left my imagination running. What also struck me was the genuine love before after and during each of these scenes. It was nice to see them bring down the barriers and show the vulnerability and trust when sharing fantasies.

5 Stars.

Quote of the Book:

“Laurel, you’re the most important thing to me. I want to know everything about you. I want to be with you when you’re happy, and I especially want to be with you when you’re sad. I want the chance to make you feel better.”
