Synopsis

All of her friends know her as Dana Darling, the clean romance writer. She's never written a steamy novel, not even in her head, but now her publisher needs her to write one. It doesn't appear too difficult at first, but then Dana's lack of sexual knowledge creates writer's block.
That's where her friend Landon comes in. She needs pointers on positions and dirty talk, and he owes her a favor. They agree that it's strictly business and clothes are mandatory, but once they get to work, it's another story entirely... one that's being written between the sheets and not on paper.

*More Than Words is a standalone erotica novella*

Excerpt


“This story calls for several scenes involving varying positions.”
“Okay...so?”
I close my eyes and let out a breath. I whisper, “I've only ever done...one position.”
Her jaw drops and a choked sound comes from her throat. “Get out! You...you haven't even been on top?”
I give a shy shrug. “Never had the opportunity.”
“What do you mean 'opportunity'? You just climb on top.”
“Oh good God.” Sometimes I forget how bold Ivy is until she comes right out and states it so plainly. “Are you blushing?” I shake my head no, but touch my cheek to cover it. She tsks me and says, “Honey, you shouldn't be afraid of stepping outside the box.” 
“I'm not. I just never had a guy willing to.”  
“Then you need to find one and get to work.” “You did not just suggest I start hooking up with a guy for research.”
“I didn't, but now that you mention it...”
I smack her arm and laugh. “That'll be the day.” “I'm serious.”
My smile fades away. “Wait, you are?”
“Yeah, why not? Could be good for you,” she says with a shrug. “I don't do sex with no strings.” Not just don't—I can't. I'm not good at separating the two. Sex happens when I feel love, not because I want to have fun. “I don't misbehave.”
“You should. Playing it safe is why you're so scared of writing this book. Being 'good' is boring. Predictable.”
“I don't want to be boring and predictable.”
“Then misbehave,” she says with a grin.





My Rating:


4.5

Favorite Quotes:


“Landon is the iconic boy from next door. The one that you rode your bike around the neighborhood with.  Stopping periodically for the ice cream truck and scrounging up all the change in your pockets to split a Popsicle.” 

“So you’re asking me to be your pretend sex partner with clothes on.”

“My eyes close, and a sound I’ve never heard before comes out of my mouth.  It’s like a cross between a squeal and a moan.  It’s very primal and unlike me.” 

“Everything I’m feeling unravels like a ribbon from a spool when I realize he left without saying goodbye.”

My Review:

 A quick and saucy little diversion.  A tasty treat to read and enjoy while indulging yourself with a free afternoon.  This author has an easy way with words and brings a smile to my face and a smirk to my mouth.  Well written, entertaining, believable, and humorous.
