My Rating: 4 of 5 Ravens
Synopsis: This month my name is Mary. My name is different every month—Brandy, Honey, Amy…sometimes Joe doesn't even bother to ask—but he never fails to arouse me with his body, his mouth, his touch, no matter what I'm called or where he picks me up. The sex is always amazing, always leaves me itching for more in those long weeks until I see him again.
My real name is Sadie, and once a month over lunch Joe tells me about his latest conquest. But what Joe doesn't know is that, in my mind, I'm the star of every X-rated one-night stand he has revealed to me, or that I'm practically obsessed with our imaginary sex life. I know it's wrong. I know my husband wouldn't understand. But I can't stop. Not yet.
Review: I purchased this book because there was a lot of talk about it on twitter and I hadn't known of it's existence, which is off because I am a big fan of Megan Hart. Anyway, people were talking so I thought, why not, check it out. I didn't have the same reaction that everyone else seemed to have. Yes, it was an excellent book, but I didn't get the same emotional connection that everyone else did.
Ms. Hart writes fabulous erotica that has a slight twist to the plot or ending and it's never cookie cutter, this book is definitely not cookie cutter and it has a lot of emotional depth. There is a development level to the characters that is astounding. I didn't get a strong connection to Joe, he just seemed like an asshole through the whole thing, I did connect with the heroine but not as closely as everyone else seemed to.
The sensuality in this book is top notch, there are few erotica writers who are the same level as Megan Hart and I have enjoyed almost every book she has written. If you like a darkly sensual erotic fiction with strong emotion undertones this book is for you.
