book given to me for review
Barbara cut off her words with a kiss, pressing her lips gently but insistently against Jennifer’s mouth. Jennifer sat there in stunned silence. When she didn’t respond, Barbara raised her head. She held Jennifer’s face in a tight grip and moaned. She wanted to feel Jennifer’s tongue against her own.
“Jennifer, please le me in. Let me make you feel good.”
“Yes please.” She whispered, ever so polity. She touched her tongue against Barbara’s.
“Oh Jennifer. You undo me.” Barbara whispered against her mouth and then dipped her head to such on her neck.”
Now, we all known that I was a bit scared to read a full on F-F book. I dipped my toe with an urban fantasy F-F, but KT Grant was asking me to go boldly where Smokinhotbooks had never gone before. A May-December female love book. Or as I like to fondly call this genre, a femfest book. Was I a little uncomfy with some of the more erotic scenes of the book? Sure, I’ll confess to being a bit of a prude. However, after finishing this book I can say that enjoyed the erotic aspects of the book and didn’t look through my fingers during the characters naughty time. KT Grant has busted me out of my male-male only rut, and now I can brag to all my more worldly friends that I can join the female love group too!
Normally May-December romances don’t really ‘speak to me’, but I put my prejudices aside and really enjoyed this aspect of the story. The author definitely made a hypocrite out of me as I thoroughly enjoyed the older woman/younger woman love angle with Barbara and Jennifer, and found the dynamics of their relationship really worked for me.
Barbara, a successful (billionaire) hotel owner runs into young, Jenny Caffey in a local Starbucks, only to find out that the hotel Jenny is working (St. Jennings) out is owned by the sultry older woman nicknamed The Barracuda. As Jenny and Barbara start a sensual relationship can it survive when Jenny finds out the hotel might be closing…?
Lovestruck is an apt title for how I was ‘struck’ on how much I liked this book. As I mentioned above, the older woman dating a younger, more innocent woman really worked for me. Even though I prefer my erotic with two guys or heck if I’m feeling adventurous throw in another one, I was surprised on how much it didn’t matter that I was reading about two females. This is a testament to the writing – a good author; no matter the sex of the characters can pull you in with great character development and writing.
Although I won’t be putting away my ‘I heart man- love t-shirt’ anytime soon, maybe there is room in my closet for ‘I heart girlie love’…?
Lovestruck is a sensual, contemporary romance between two women from different worlds that find love in one of my favorite coffee shops (Starbucks). Did I mention intimate scenes were verra (x2) sexy? For those of you readers that want to branch out into something different, Lovestruck is a well-written female/female contemporary erotica book.
P.S. I’m really hoping that Mike (Jenny’s adorable gay roommate) gets a book of his own *crosses fingers*
