Sparkling water fanatic. Lover of random crap. Goodreads member curious to see if the grass really is greener on the other side.
Simone smiled at that and ran her tongue along her bottom lip. "Yes, Elliott. I like it."
"Why does anyone like what they like?"
I've said it many times before - Erotica is very much a personal preference. The stories that people connect to are often the ones which fuel a person's own fantasy. Even if a reader is able to be entertained by another person's sexual preferences, there's something about reading the scenes which tickle one's own fancy that turns erotica into a personal experience.
I've read plenty of BDSM and enjoy it well enough, but it's rare for me to find the type of sexual stories where I say, "that's what I think is hot!" Too often, rougher sex is accompanied by props and routines. I get happy when I stumble upon a writer who is willing to write rough and forceful sex without all of the accompanying instruments. Willing Victim was always my go-to for this type of story, along with a few paranormal romances where mating was often more forceful than vanilla sex.
Thank you, Megan Hart, for remembering that there is a niche for this type of fantasy.
Simone likes it rough. She likes to be pinched, spanked, bitten, and man-handled. She has no desire to wear a collar, get beaten with a flogger, or call someone master. She just wants a man who knows how to give her what she wants - that delectable version of sex where pain and pleasure co-mingle into something on another level.
Elliott wants what Simone wants, but every woman prior to her has been scared off by his aggressive bedroom play.
I was surprised to see that Elliott might have more of a back-story than what was shown in book 1. Maybe I shouldn't be - after all, this is Megan Hart. She isn't really the type to write just sex by itself without some sort of emotional story attached to it. In the case of the Every Parts of You serial, I think it's going to work.
I'm looking forward to seeing what's up next. These characters need to cut loose. When it happens, it's probably going to be a lot of fun to witness.
