Illusions — we all create them.
For some it’s to project an impressive image to a prospective employer; for others it’s to attract the eye of another.
My illusion is a bit more…complicated.
Years in the making, my secret has the potential to bite me in the ass. And not in the way I typically enjoy.
As women, we’re judged for reveling in the same carnal pleasures that men do, but I’ve never been shy about my voracious appetite.
Now, I’m under no illusions that I’ll find love with any of my one night stands.
After all, I have one rule — no repeats — but it’s a rule that’s becoming harder to follow since Evan James came back into my life.
Did I say back into my life?
My name is Reagan Spencer, and you may think you know me, but…
How well do we really know anyone?
A Desperate Man, Volume 1
You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.
Her first solo novel, a romantic comedy, is due out in early 2015, but first, she thought she’d write a raunchy story with her best friend that would scar her conservative southern family for life.
If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find – just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
Ella Frank is a #1 Amazon Bestselling Author. She writes both contemporary and erotic fiction and is best known for her Exquisite Series, and Temptation Series.
The minute she began her love affair with reading, she became and avid supporter of the romance genre and has never looked back.
Ella is Australian born and bred but currently resides in Houston, Texas with her husband.
Holy crap this serial just keeps getting more intense. I’m so freaking addicted.
I’m going to try and leave out any specific details about the actual story because I think that with serials like this you especially do not want to know any spoilers. You will want to experience it all for the awesomeness that it is.
I thought the first volume of A Desperate Man left you feeling a bit shocked and in awe regarding Evan’s sexual addiction. His screwed up life was captivating and honestly a bit bizarre. Jesus. The extremes he endured. But the connection he shared with Reagan enticed you into believing he wanted and deserves more than his hollow life was giving him. It left you wondering how and why Reagan seemed to fit into his chaos.
I thought the second volume expanded the story so Reagan and Evan’s romance captured your heart and created an affection for them individually as well as a couple. Their coupling was still sexy as all hell but there’s so more to their story. It became more than just sexual escapades – there’s romance, flirting and lots of amazing banter. The balance between the two shifts and it’s a highly entertaining dynamic.
I love this serial and think that Ella and Brooke should continue to partner up – their work together is incredible. The A Desperate Man serial series is a must read. Honestly, I cannot wait to see where they take Reagan and Evan next.
