Throwback Thursday: Loving Lies by Lora Leigh
Author: Lora Leigh
First published in 2006 by Samhain Publishing
Love will find a way. Slade was Jessie's life, the first love that filled her heart and soul and bound her woman's spirit. Years of waiting culminating in an incredible weekend of sexual abandon-teaching her everything she needed to know to be his woman and branded her as Slade's woman for life. Jessie was certain Slade had to love her. Until he whispered the lie, the ultimate betrayal, and walked away only to wed another woman. Now five years later Slade returns, his soul has withered without Jessie's presence, and now he'll have her, one way or the other.
The love for her, the fierce overriding hunger and need consumes his heart and binds his soul. No matter the obstacles, Slade will get her back. Whatever it takes. Whatever he has to do. Warning: this book contains lots of steamy, hot lovin'.
It's been a while since I have read a book by this author. I forgot how intensely erotic her books can be. Loving Lies is no exception. With the upcoming release of one third "Boys of Summer" book, Dirty Little Lies, I thought it might be good to go back to the beginning of the series to catch up.
For the most part, I enjoyed the story. Slade is an uber-alpha male and a little over the top at times. But I was rooting for him to get Jessie back. I had to suspend a little bit of disbelief over the reason Slade left. I liked how Jessie grew over the five years he was gone. It would have been nicer had the book been a little longer to be able to see what went on while they were apart.
If you are looking for intense and well written erotica, you can't go wrong with this author. Why not start with this one?
