Twisted By Desire
by Desiree A. Cox
Series: Lust, Desire and Love Trilogy, #1
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: December 13, 2014

Nikki Carmichael is confused. Her head’s telling her one thing while her heart is sending another message.

She believed her first husband, Sky, was her Prince Charming. They got married expecting to live their happily ever after, but the happiness dwindled right along with their checking account. Their divorce legally ended the marriage, but not the love and uncontrollable desire between them.

Then she meets Jeff. He’s hotter than an August day in Florida, and can offer her everything she’s always thought she wanted.

Jeff is committed to his life as a bachelor, but his high-powered nature has finally brought him to a crossroads. He’s face-to-face with a quandary; his decisions will affect his professional and personal life forever.

Nikki’s tenacious efforts to live a dream life, while still keeping her heart shielded, are coupled with wrestling an ongoing dilemma – her heart still belongs to Sky.

But Nikki isn't the only one who’s twisted by desire.

As I stood, Jeff placed his hand on my lower back, which was the equivalent to pushing the floodgate button while touching me with an electric wand. I inhaled slow and deep. The tingles radiated through me. I could feel the wetness breaching the tiny silk barrier. After staring into his inviting eyes and listening to his deep, husky voice throughout dinner, I longed for him to kiss me.

We walked out to the car, where the perfect gentleman opened my door for me. Before I was able to lower myself into my seat, he stroked my face with his hands, our eyes fixed on each other. I tilted my head slightly into his hand as he caressed me with the gentlest touch. Is he reading my mind? I was waiting for him to lean in and kiss me. I leaned forward and held my gaze on him, wanting his mouth to consume mine, waiting to taste him. Instead, he pulled back.  I sighed and sat down, and once I was situated in my seat, he shut the door. Fuck, fuck, FUCK!

Wow! This was one hot read! What a fabulous debut by Desiree A. Cox that left me turning the last page wanting more! As the first book in a trilogy, this book set the stage for what looks to be one heck of a story about, well, as the series name says, lust, desire, and love.

So, you have Nikki and Sky who are divorced, and in addition to sharing custody of their little girl, they also share some hot times between the sheets even though they aren't married anymore. It’s pretty clear these two still love each other, but their relationship was clearly one where love just wasn't enough, at least not for Nikki. Enter Jeff – the hot guy she meets at the bar. The guy who makes her body sing and can offer her the financial stability that was missing from her marriage. Oh, yeah, these two burn up the sheets, the lounge chair near the pool, the kitchen…well, you get the idea! But when things start to get serious, Nikki finds herself needing to make some decisions that will impact not just her life, but the lives of those around her.

I loved the pacing of this book – it moved very quickly and kept me engaged throughout. I loved the flashback scenes that were included, they really helped set the stage for certain events and gave a deeper insight into some of the characters and their relationships. There were twists and turn, lots of heat and steam, and had a storyline that grabs you from the first page. And did I mention how hot the book was?

Even though the book focused on Nikki and Jeff, I loved that we got to know so many of the people in Nikki’s life. They really helped to add additional depth to the book and added another dimension to the story being told. From her work and personal friends, to her family, and Sky and their little girl, each character, no matter what small part they played, had an important part in the story and influencing Nikki’s life.

This was a great start to this trilogy and, if you like a great story with lots of heat and steam, you don’t want to miss this one!

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
