This week’s choice for the LoveRotica Book Challenge is a book written by the duo of Marni Mann and Gia Riley called “Lover”. It was a steamy unexpected good read.
Here’s what I think:
This book was not normally something I would read, but I tend to like Marni Mann’s writing so I gave it a try.
What do you do when your marriage is in trouble! You start swinging that’s what. At least that’s what Piper and Cannon did.
Piper was a stay at home wife whose lawyer husband had become distant. She was desperate to fix what was wrong and ran across a chat room for swingers. She was only looking for marriage advise when she was approached by a lady wanting to swing. She considered it after seeing the lady’s husband. H-O-T!
West was a professional hockey player whose recent bout with concussions forced him into early retirement. His wild wife Tilly liked to have threesomes with other women, so it wasn’t a stretch when she proposed they try swinging. To West’s surprise and pleasure the couple chosen included hot lady he passed jogging on the beach Every morning. He fantasized about her, but never thought he would get the chance to be with her.
Things heat up from there. Secrets, lies, and broken rules cause turmoil in both relationships. One thing for sure, swinging wasn’t the end all cute all for Piper’s marriage, but it was just what she needed.
The writing was good, but this one stretched on a bit longer than necessary. I liked West and Piper was cool. I really wanted to smack Tilly. She was a tool and Cannon was a annoying. I almost lost it during the scene where his ‘lawyer’ serves her papers. I wanted to hurt him. He as so selfish! I am not one for books about cheating so this one was a little out of the box for me. This one gets 4 kisses from me!
