Billionaire businesswoman Akira Mori can get anything and anyone her heart desires. Anyone, that is, except for a certain aloof author who has been dominating her dreams for over a decade. Accustomed to Jacob Campbell’s stern disapproval, Akira has turned provocation into an art, using every trick in her arsenal to keep the man from guessing the depth of her filthy fantasies.
Shameless. That’s what she made him.
Since the moment the sexy, sultry socialite sidled up to him years ago, there hasn’t been a time when Jacob didn’t crave Akira. But as guardian to his younger siblings, responsibility has controlled his life. Confining his darkest desires to secret, stolen moments maintains his carefully disciplined world…but a cold bed is the price he pays.
A single touch is all it takes for their simmering need to explode. As secrets and fears are stripped away one by one, shame becomes a thing of the past. They find themselves becoming addicted to each other, in bed and out—a frightening prospect for a man just learning to live…and a woman who thinks she doesn’t know how to love.
Feminist, sex-positive erotica that says fuck you to rape culture, slut-shaming, and totally flips the traditional gender roles of the billionaire shiterature that has flooded the market since The Book That Shall Not Be Named was first published.
Need I say more?
Okay, I’ll say more. This book is one of the sexiest things I’ve ever read. Which is saying something, since I’ve read my fair share of both romance and erotica.
The female lead, Akira Mori, is unapologetically sexual. Men, women, multiple partner sex, she’s down for it all. The male lead, Jacob Campbell, is…not. At least not at first. Because since the death of his parents, he’s raised his siblings himself. He’s responsible, dependable, and self-sacrificing.
This book is so much more than just erotica. There are some very strong messages here. Jacob has to get over his shyness, he has to get over his self-doubt and self-disgust if he wants to be with Akira. And Akira has to move past the ghost of her mother, who saw her daughter’s sex-positivity and proceeded to viciously slut-shame her.
When these two finally resolve their issues and get together…whoo boy.
So if you find yourself in the mood for a super-hot erotic novel with an awesome feminist message, give this one a try.
