MY STAR RATING
Lisa and Davis love each other as much as any two people can. With the children gone for a single evening for the first time ever, the couple’s tenth wedding anniversary already promises unbridled pleasure. A chance meeting with recent divorcee Becky leads Lisa to stumble on the opportunity of a lifetime and she realizes she’s found a priceless object both she and Davis have long desired. If she can just acquire this perfect present, a lust-filled erotic fantasy beyond imagining will provide them all with a night they’ll never forget. Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes-no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here! An adult contemporary romance from Ellora’s Cave
I am finding it difficult to review this book. Not because it was bad but because I found myself going up and down like a rollercoaster with my feelings toward the characters.
I usually prefer to read books where the male is dominant and possessive but in this case, it’s a little different.
I’ll explain below.
Lisa isn’t really a domme but she also isn’t a submissive for the most part. In my opinion, she’s a lot like me.
She is outspoken with her desires and feelings and knows her own value as a wife, mother and sexual goddess, lol.
She and Davis have a solid and exciting marriage as well as a huge sexual appetite, and each year they try to one-up each other with their anniversary gifts.
This year, however, I think Lisa wins by bringing home a work colleague as a ‘third’ for a night.
I’ll be honest…I didn’t like Lisa much.
She got right on ma tits, so she did, and I can’t put my finger on why exactly.
I spoke to my bestie about it, as she was the one to suggest I read this book, and she suggested that it was because Lisa wasn’t demure and that in their relationship Davis was more the sub.
She may be right, lol, I know I prefer a growly, alpha male!
I liked him…but I wasn’t attracted to him.
Well actually, that’s not entirely true…I was very much attracted to his large penis and what he was able to do with it, lol.
Again, as my bestie said, it’s likely because he’s not my preference in the bedroom and not the kind of personality I usually gravitate toward.
I need a strong man who is able to put me in my place when I step outta line…or at least try to do that, hahaha!
Davis is more than happy to follow Lisa’s lead but when she brings a friend home on their anniversary he’s a little disappointed.
They got rid of the kids for the night and booked a table in a private room at a fancy restaurant.
He was looking forward to the evening and now it looks like they won’t be getting their freak on after all.
But when he realises that she has a little more in mind though he’s completely on board, lol!
Now, although I wasn’t particularly keen on the characters when it came to the sex, it was Hot. As. Fuck! Check it out.
“Shhhhh. It’s alright, my sweet baby girl. I’m with you. We’ll take him together.” She kissed her neck again and Becky’s breathing slowed. Her tongue slid across Becky’s skin. So sweet. It has to be Davis. She’d never been attracted to another woman but the heat from Becky’s skin was simply delectable. It’s the game making me feel like this. Watching Davis. That’s why I feel like this. She kissed Becky’s ear softly, wanting to hold her in her arms. “Together.” Lisa returned to Davis again, nodding her consent to him as her fingertips caressed Becky’s side. Davis pushed harder. Eight inches in. Eight inches out. This is unbelievable. Her husband’s huge cock was driving into another woman’s tight pussy inches away and Lisa was the one on the verge of orgasm. Her fingers drifted to her own clit, circling softly, sliding across her soaking lips. This was the vision Davis saw every time she gave herself to him. This was why he loved to take her from behind. Lisa watched the muscles in Davis’s back tighten. She moved behind him and pressed her breasts against him, staring over his shoulder. She smelled his musky scent. Overpowering. Tasting his flesh, she allowed her arms to encircle his body. Her touch drove him harder as she knew it would. Becky’s fingers reached for the edge of the mattress as she began to scream. “Davis! Yes. Don’t stop. Don’t ever stop!” “She’s gorgeous, isn’t she?” Lisa cooed in her husband’s ear. “So beautiful,” he panted. Moving faster. “Beyond tight.” Becky’s screams of pleasure caressed Lisa’s ears with passion. Nine inches in. Nine inches out. His pelvis compressed the luscious ass just beyond her reach. Better than any fantasy. Lisa could sense act two’s climax approaching. Davis needed to understand his motivation for this scene. He needed direction only she could provide. She licked his neck. “Listen to her, Davis. She’s yours now if you can take her. Happy anniversary.” Davis clutched Becky’s hips tighter and drove into her with everything he had.“Come for me, Becky,” he implored. “I need to feel you come.”
FINAL THOUGHTS on THE PRESENT by Patrick Khayler
So here’s the thing. The characters were okay but not great. And the story itself didn’t really pull me in as much as I’d like so I’d give 3 stars for that. However!! The man knows how to write a sex scene! I’d give 5 (hundred) starts for that, lol. So I’m going to give it 4 stars overall.
Thank you for reading!
