Arianne Duggan, known as Ari, is 28 years old and still a virgin. Unbeknown to anyone, other than one other person, lies a darker side of Ari. She wants to lose her virginity but not in the ordinary way. No! She has specific needs. She doesn’t want a relationship, just a night. One night to be fucked the way she desires.
Connor Lewis has everything that Ari is looking for. Tall, blonde, blue eyes and a six pack. Connor is a typical, 30 year old man, with a demanding nature that he keeps hidden. He loves life and is a happy soul. He has a reputation as a bad boy due to his looks and the tattoo that runs down the left side of his body. He is just what Ari is looking for. But is he?
After approaching Connor on a night out they strike up a deal, a deal that benefits them both. The connection she feels with Connor scares her, because she doesn’t know that after one night with him, she will be able to walk away. Unbeknown to her Connor feels the same, but he too is scared. No woman has got under his skin and accepted him the way he is in the bedroom, until Ari.
On the verge of striking up a new deal, a face from Ari’s past makes a dramatic entrance and the demons she thought she had fought, come back to haunt her. Struggling with her emotions, she pushes Connor away, until he puts forward a new deal to her. A different deal!
Will she take it? Will the feelings that they have both kept tucked away come spilling out or will they stay safely locked away, forever!
This story is unrealistic and naive. I had a hard time grasping her thoughts and feelings. Had Ari not been a virgin and had more experience, it would have made more sense. My question while reading the story was, “How does an inexperienced person know she has this dark sexual side?” Perhaps it happens, but it seems completely unbelievable to me.
Due to the vocabulary used, I could tell the story took place in England, though I don’t recall it ever being mentioned in the book. Words like “sat” instead of “sitting”, and “snigger” instead of “laugh” or “snicker” were used often. (Yes, “snigger” is understandable, but not when used for every single time a character laughed.) One part I didn’t understand was “wanker” being used as a horrible insult a couple of times. (I had to snicker at those parts.) I also had an issue with the word “gently” being used constantly throughout the story. The same goes for the words “cock” and “pussy”. Those are the only two words the author used to describe the characters’ anatomy. There are many other words that mean the same thing and could have been used also. A few other common grammar mistakes were made, but I could look past them with ease.
The story seemed to want to pull off of the “50 Shades of Grey” storyline, but failed miserably. The worst part of it is the author has an amazing way of writing. I wanted to enjoy the story, I just couldn’t. I will read more of her work to see if I enjoy other storylines more. I hope that I do, because again, I believe she has great talent and I can’t wait to see it used.
