The walk of shame.
Ah, yes, there’s nothing quite like shamelessly letting yourself be dragged off to a storage closet by a younger man to really put the cherry on top of your humiliation sundae. It’s been a long, slow trip to the bottom, but I’ve finally reached my limit. After spending the night with Christopher Fellows, and slinking out of his apartment in the wee hours of the morning, I have no choice but to take a serious look at myself. It’s time for a change. A real life overhaul, full of self-development, healthy living, and all that other stuff that’s supposed to be good for you. And what better way to find yourself than with a vow of celibacy and a trip to Belize? The way I figure it, if you’re going to get your act together, you might as well begin with a tropical jaunt to paradise to start your transformation off on the right foot.
What could possibly go wrong?
Now, Jennifer Dawson is a brilliant author – I have devoured every single book she has written, and it is a safe bet to say that I would devour everything by this lady in the days to come!
This is the newest offering by her – but you might know one of the characters; Ashley from Debauched (Read My Review); wherein she propositioned Chad Fellows. But here’s the kicker, Ashley is on a bender; in her own words, she has never wanted for anything in her life yet has been bought to a down low by a man – a mans she fancied herself in love with, but was rejected again and again; leading her down a path where she doesn’t even recognize herself let alone respect herself.
The last of her decisions led her to jump into bed with Christopher Fellow, Chad’s baby brother and a man who is 5 years younger to her! Knowing that she needs some semblance of control in her life, she decides to go on a vacation to find herself and men are definitely not part of that plan.
What she doesn’t expect is for Christopher to turn up at the exact same place for a conference? Fate or Unconscious desires at work?
This is NOT a full-length story, more of a novella; but it has all the makings of a full blown romance – a little bit of angst, a lot of more of a plot, two brilliant suited MC’s and a writing style that sucks you right in from the start!
My only issue is that, the story ended quite abruptly; I honestly wasn’t expecting that – it would have been a whole better experience if there had been an epilogue at the end, just to see how well Ashley and Christopher fared in the day to day lives!
While I am not going to talk much about the story, for you need to find out exactly what (and HOW) Ashley and Chad find their happiness; though I will say that this is another brilliant work by this author; and I can’t wait to see where she takes this series in the future!
