Author: Roni Loren
FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE LOVING ON THE EDGE NOVELS, THE FIRST IN A SENSUAL NEW SERIES
Overtime has never felt so good…
Marin Rush loves studying sex. Doing it? That’s another story. In the research lab, Marin’s lack of practical knowledge didn’t matter, but now that she’s landed a job at The Grove, a high-end, experimental sex therapy institute, she can’t ignore the fact that the person most in need of sexual healing may be her.
Dr. Donovan West, her new hotshot colleague, couldn’t agree more. Donovan knows that Marin’s clients are going to eat her alive unless she gets some hands-on experience. And if she fails at the job, he can say goodbye to a promotion, so he assigns her a list of R-rated tasks to prepare her for the wild clientele of The Grove’s X-wing.
But some of those tasks are built for two, and when he finds Marin searching for a candidate to help her check off her list, Donovan decides there’s only one man for the job—him. As long as they keep their erotic, off-the-clock activities strictly confidential and without strings, no one will get fired—or worse, get attached…
(Donovan) “Tell me again the color of the sky.”
His voice sounded strained now, tense. He was riding the edge.
(Marin) “It’s green, Donovan. It’s always green with you.”
You’ll understand this quote/reference more when you read it (and you should read this book immediately!!) but oh man… this quote made my heart sing!!
This story is about 2 people that met years ago and had one week together… they met, became a light in an otherwise dark life and then were thrust back into a harsh reality that did not include each other… one week to make an impression that lasted for years.
Present day we have 2 adults who are sex therapists and now hold jobs at the same institute. Their chemistry is still palpable and will not be ignored!
Roni Loren has again written a story that is as unique as it is hot! At the same time, she gave us flawed characters that can help one another not only heal but want to heal… Donovan was content on his path until he knew that he wanted a future with Marin and to have that he has to deal with the past.
I loved this story and the journey it took me on. Roni handled the issue of depression realistically and compassionately. And got I my HEA tied in a beautiful red bow! Bring on the next Pleasure Principle story!! I cannot wait!
