In Bonnie Edwards’ latest erotic romance, our heroine Jaye meets our hero Alex at a car auction, and with a bit of eye flirting, they take off to every girl’s dream: a two week sex-a-thon in Europe. But neither one of them expects their hearts to be involved.
But they never quite make it to Europe. After only a few minutes in the air, Alex realizes that Jaye has a death grip on the armrests, and is freaked out to be in his private jet. His solution? Talk dirty. Oh yeah, he distracts her from her fears with panty-melting, thigh clenching, naughty words. Somewhere in the friendly skies above Paris, they realize Jaye doesn’t have a passport, so they end up in Arizona. In Alex’s home…not just a building or an English country house, but his home. And Alex knows that means he might care more for Jaye than their two week deal allows.
My favorite quote was Alex realizing he wanted Jaye for longer than the two weeks:
“”He didn’t know how to keep a woman. He’d trained himself to let them go. He never got attached, never wanted to. Not until Jaye.”
It’s just sex, that’s all it can ever be. A hot, steamy fling, and that’s all they both want…at first. Jaye starts pulling away any time Alex mentions staying longer. Jaye is responsible, has a teenage son, and unfortunately thinks of herself as trailer trash. Alex sees the truth; she’s a smart, sexy, down to earth woman who cares about everyone. But Jaye refuses to see Alex as anything more than a rich, flirty out of her league playboy.
Can Alex push Jaye to look deeper and see the real man, not the playboy reputation?
Can Jaye accept that her fairy tale can last beyond the Stroke of Midnight?
In less than 100 pages, Bonnie Edwards breathes new life into a steamy, sexy, dirty talkin’ version of Cinderella with Stroke of Midnight.
