Jenny: Wow Gitte, once again we read a book where we had no idea what to expect and didn’t this turn out to be a little gem? It had it all didn’t it? Passion, a swoon worthy hero who really is a hero, loveable characters, hot steamy sex and something you don’t often find in a short story….depth. The characters had depth and I found myself immersed in this book from start to finish.
Gitte: Absolutely Jenny, I really enjoyed this story, it had everything, including the “unusual” and yeah I loved the characters! I thought the Author did a FAB job with this book; I was hooked and left completely satisfied by the end.
Jenny: It was a panty dropping read wasn’t it Gitte, which is pretty amazing considering our Hero Cohen is a virgin. That’s right folks, you read right. Cohen is a smoking hot, volunteer fire-fighter and a virgin and I just think I might be in love with him!
Gitte: LOVED Cohen, he made such a refreshing hero…and he REALLY was a hero that’s for sure! Like Liz, I was completely drawn to him. He certainly was skilled….in so many ways!
Jenny: He certainly was. So, we first met Liz, the snarky, commitment phobe, highly sexed friend of Ashlyn in Unravel Me (Unravel Me #1). Liz is outspoken and is very clear that she wants sex. No commitment, just sex.
We didn’t get to know a whole lot about Liz in Unravel Me so to see her in this book and have her story unfold I must admit I really warmed to her and liked her a lot. She is still the snarky, highly sexed Liz, but we see so much more of her and she has a lot of depth that wasn’t uncovered until now.
Gitte: I really liked Liz. She is an ‘out there’ feisty and fun girl who really grew on me. A free-spirit! At no point did her outspokenness or attitude annoy me, and I can completely see why she was drawn like a moth to a flame when it came to Cohen. I mean who wouldn’t be, not only was he delicious he also had intrigue. It started as friendship and Liz almost acting like the instigator in their relationship, however, no doubt about it, Cohen had the upper hand and his personality completely complemented Liz’s and they evened each other out on both an emotional level as well as the physical.
Jenny: Liz isn’t about to take Cohen’s virginity but she finds it so hard holding back from this very hot, very beautiful man. Temptation is well and truly put in her way with Cohen.
Liz has a past that little by little I enjoyed being unraveling. We watched the layers peel away and we came to understand her so much more. Liz is all about the physical connection and doesn’t want to change.
Gitte: I absolutely loved Cohen. Despite his laid back attitude, he was intense, focused and knew what he wanted. He is a hero…a hot gorgeous hero! Oh and he has a dog called Bob….that sleeps in his bed…I have no idea why I loved this fact so much…but I did!!
Jenny: Hmmm…okay…the dog. Moving right along. Well, what wasn’t to love about Cohen. This man was talented in many ways and we’re not just talking fire fighting here. Wow! Kendall Grey can certainly write a hot sex scene with no sex, this was a really hot little read that’s for sure. Cohen is kind, patient and all round just a really nice guy. Certain incidences in his past have forced him to make the choice to remain a virgin until that special girl comes along. He wants to connect on an emotional level and not just a physical one. He’s definitely understanding but by no means a pushover and he could certainly put Liz in her place when need be. The sexual tension is intense and at no point does it become frustrating or boring. In fact just the opposite.
Gitte: I agree Jenny, at no point reading this story did I get bored, rather I thought it was a great read for how light and short it was. It had fab characters and a refreshing storyline.
Jenny: Me neither Gitte. It definitely kept me interested and entertained throughout that’s for sure. I really enjoyed this book . I was looking for something quick, light but with depth and I certainly found it in this book. I loved revisiting Ashlyn and Aiden and just loved this book. I couldn’t put it down.
J&G: To sum up this book was a sexy, passionate and emotional story with funny and lovable characters – Kendall Ryan’s Books really are like a breath of fresh air.
