I enjoyed this book. It is the first I have read by Susan Lyons and just happens to be the first in a set of 4 books about 4 best friends. This first book is about Suzanne and Jaxon. They meet while both on vacation in Crete and have one afternoon of wild sex on a nude beach. They don't exchange names or any other information.
Four years later, after Suzanne puts an add online to search for him (at her friends insistance) they find each other based soley on personal information that only the two of them would know about that special day. They don't live in the same place and they don't have the same life goals, but sometimes the chemistry is the thing that gets you started when true love is what keeps you going in the end.
The Heroine and Hero are an interatial couple. Its obvious but not the main issue in this book. Lyons doesn't make their race a part of their issues. I would NOT have enjoyed this book as much if she had. Jaxon being Black doesn't take over the storyline, just like Suzanne being white doesn't bring the tone of the book down.
This book was sexy but not dirty. It was actually pretty romantic all the way through. Lyons did a great job keeping the sizzle hot hot hot throughout the entire book without overdoing the sex part at the expense of the storyline itself. I will deffinately be reading the other 3 books, which will tell the stories of Suzannes other 3 friends, who we meet in this book.
Love this series. One thing nice about this series is that you don't have to read them in order. But if you do this is book #1, then Hot in Here is #2 and Touch me is #3 and She's on top is #4. These books are very hot and very explicit but they also have a great story.
I was excited about this series but was very disappointed in this book. I got really tired of the girlfriend chit chat and Suzanne's obsession with "finding Mr. Cleaver" and everyone's references to that throughout the book.
When Suzanne Brennon met Jaxon Navarre, she had yet to experience the ultimate in pleasure...but his tender initiation made her wildest dreams come true. Their brief, passionate affair had nothing at all to do with...forever. Four years later, the same rules apply. Keep it light. Keep it simple. And keep it sexy. Very, very sexy. In Jax's bed, Suzanne finds that desire goes deeper than she ever imagined and erotic pleasure has a whole new meaning. But when it comes right down to it, she's ready to break every rule in the book for him. (Sexually explicit)
