Emma Holly writes some of the best love scenes in print, with enough steam to fog in JFK for a week. Having said that, I feel I must say that this is probably one of the worst books I've read in a while. It was nothing more than a bunch of extremely erotic sex scenes loosely strung together with minimal plot. What started out as Beatrix's story somehow evolved into Lela's love affair with her ex-BF's boss...after the ex-BF set them up and got hot for Beatrix. Yuck with a capital Y. The only reason this one gets 2 stars from me is for the really good sex. It's the only reason I kept reading.
I liked all the characters in this book and how they all overcame various insecurities. Yes, there is a lot of sex in the book but it is very well written and I found the story very interesting. Much better than I thought it would be.

Pretty good book, though I prefer single couple storylines. I loved the bits on Bea & Philip and didn't care much for Lela or Andrew. Simon was a sympathetic character with a warm and loving family; lela didn't deserve him.
