She wanted fantasy. He's about to make it a reality...
Grant Osprey just had the hottest sex of his life. Sure, they were both in costume, and yes, it was anonymous, but he never expected her to bolt in the middle of the night without so much as a good bye, let alone exchanging numbers. Or names. All he's left with are her panties and some seriously X-rated memories...until he meets his business partner's little sister.
Only Chloe Talley isn't the bold, sexy vixen he remembers. And she wants nothing to do with him.
Cosplay is Chloe's only chance to leave her boring, socially awkward world behind. To forget that she's failing at life and can't be with anyone, let alone a single-father like Grant. But the raw hunger between them is undeniable. With him, she can be a misbehaving maid. A sexy call girl for hire. Each scene pushes Chloe beyond her strict boundaries, until Grant demands the one character she can't play: Herself.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
This book was a complete smut fest. A well written, engaging smut fest but I’d say around 60% is our couple Chloe and Grant having different fantasy themed sex.
I really liked Ms. Erickson’s writing style and loved the previous book in this series (Changing His Game) so I couldn’t wait to get to see super hot, funny, single dad Grant get a lady. Well, he meets a super hot girl in cosplay during Comic-Con and they get it on anonymous-super-hot-kinky style.
Chloe is a girl that I believe has serious psychological issues… she thinks the only way she can get her rocks off is by playing a part so she remains in the character she is dressed as and has the fun she knows she wouldn’t be able to have as herself. Mainly because she is shy, and likes comfy clothes and a whole other load of crap.
So after having the hottest sex ever, she leaves Grant (whose name she never asked) sleeping in his hotel room to never be seen again. Needless to say I didn’t love Chloe.
Unbeknownst to both, they have a connection. Chloe is Ethan’s sister and Ethan is Grant’s new business partner. So they’ll get the surprise of a life time when they meet each other again (out of costume) during a business dinner.
They kind of fall into a kinky roll-playing sexual relationship, mostly at Chloe’s insistence, who wouldn’t get out of character… ever, leaving Grant deeply confused.
Well, apparently they fall for each other, I guess kinky, fantasy playing awesome sex will turn into feelings… somehow? Chloe had some severe hang ups about a family tragedy, and her personality issues seem to stem from that. Because of her issues, I never really quite understood what their real connection was, apart from freakin’ fantastic sex, of course.
So, did I enjoy the book? Yes. It was scorching hot. It had some funny moments. And Grant’s dirty talk? H. O. T. Hawt!!!
I didn’t really love Chloe but Grant being the sweet, funny single dad won my support. I still would have liked for them to have a little more time to get to know each other after Chloe sorts herself out and start acting like herself, and not just a quick mention of it in the epilogue.
I’ll be waiting for the next installment on this series as I’d really like to know who’ll be stubborn enough to get under Ethan’s skin.
