This is not just a love story, it’s an obsession...

Grace:

The same week every year he comes to my little resort in Maine for five days, then disappears. His darkness, his demons, intrigue me and I need to know his story.

I hope he shows up again this year, because I’m determined to talk to him, make him see me and not look through me like I don’t exist. Make him realize I’m not just some anonymous person who hands him a key.

No, this year will be different.

I haven’t gotten laid in a long time. So, tag, he’s it.

Nick:

For the past three years, I’ve come up to this remote area to forget, to bury my grief. But this year, I don’t need a trip to this run-down resort, this little cabin on the lake, to survive this week. However, there’s one thing I’ve left behind each year when I head back to reality…

Her.

I’ve found the right woman who’ll fill the emptiness deep inside of me, the hole that’s lurked there for years. I can’t get her out of my head. Funny thing is, I don’t even know her name. I never asked.

This year that’s going to change. And I hope she’s willing because I’m taking complete control.

Unexpected love!

by Book Lovin' Momma

Grace hides away in a remote place, never imagining she'd meet someone like Nick. Nick has his own secrets, and needs his own method of escape. Together, they find something unexpected, and I loved how this sexy, steamy novella gave us a taste of them together. I really hope there will be more to their story!

Wow. This story was wonderful.

by ChelseaRose

It had just the right amount of BDSM for me. It was able to have that taboo side while still saying sweet and romantic. Nick's story is heartbreaking, and Grace was just the thing he needed to heal himself. My only complaint is I didn’t want it to end. I want more. But I think that is more a compliment than a complaint. Very well written and I highly recommend to those who like BDSM romance. Happy reading!

It's Time Now

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Nick has been grieving and coming to Grace's cabin rental for threee years but virtually not spoken to her. But he has noticed her and this year is going to be different. Grace is fed up with her life and has been attracted to nick all these years. She's hoping he will return this year. What they didn't expect was for them to be so perfect for one another. the chemistry is off the scales and they delve into the world of BDSM together! A well written book that is a real page turner and I definitely recommend it to you all.

...more than sexual chemistry

by kai

A quick, sexy, kinky, read. This is the second book, I have read by JSJ, and it did not disappoint. I enjoyed the "voice" of Grace, it was genuine, honest, and funny. Nick has come once a year (for the past three years) to find solace, heal. This year both Grace, and Nick mean to further their association with each other. What results is more than sexual chemistry. I will be looking forward to JSJ's next creative endeavor.

I read an ARC of this book.

A BDSM Novella

by Che

The story is all about the 4th time that Nick and Grace met then got together. This is just a short read so I won;t go into the spoilers. This is an okay read for me, though I must admit, I'm not much into BDSM stories, but this I believe is a nice romance - although for some I guess there is nothing nice about BDSM - especially for those who are into it. Nice plot and great character development for both characters. This is great for a short beach read.

A Hot Winters Night

by S Lange

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is a very fast paced intensely sexual BDSM novella. If you have any triggers please be cautious.

Grace owns a small resort in Maine. Her parents started this resort when they were younger, when her mother died her father kept it up now he’s gone and she feels she needs to keep it open to keep their memory alive.

Grace has a lot of feisty inner dialogue. She has Maggie her dog for companionship but that can only go so far to make a woman feel alive. She only has one guest during most of the winter. He has been coming here for the past three years and he has intrigued her. She knows he’s fighting some inner demons as his trash contains a lot of liquor bottles when he checks out.

Nick is from the city and comes up to be by himself for five days every year for the last three years. He finally feels like he has gotten his demons under control and now he feels ready to face the person that has filled his mind since his last visit.

Both Grace and Nick have an agenda. Grace’s is to get laid and Nick’s to see if Grace is willing to play his sexual games, mutual benefit for all may be had.

We get light back story on both characters a little more would have been nice, doesn’t take too much away from the characters. In the middle of all of the sexual escapades we see that Grace is a bit angry and resentful that she feels she must stay to run her resort. However she feels that she may not have enough training and skills to make it elsewhere.

Nick is recovering from a devastating loss and is finally ready to take the next step on the road to starting a new direction in his life. He thought he would be ready to move on after his five days with Grace and he’s now realizing that may not be as easy as he originally thought.

Quick sexually charged reading.
