But when Luca later expresses a desire for something more than just casual sex, Mari's impulse is to run the other way. After all, her failed marriage is evidence that she really shouldn’t go much deeper. Can Luca convince Mari otherwise? Can he help her see that he's her ultimate birthday wish come true?
Birthday Wishes is Book 1 in The List Series is intended for an adult audience only and contains mature themes, including graphic and explicit sex.
Holy hotness Batman! Luca and Mari meet online and Mari decides she wants to work through a list. It’s a list of fantasies and it’s downright hot! The agreement is, they meet on the weekends, no strings attached. But when sex is involved, feelings come into play too.
They have a fantastic time together but Mari is hesitant to let feelings get in the way because of the divorce she went through. Feelings disappear, go away. And, where does that leave you? Alone and broken hearted. That’s why she doesn’t want to get too close to Luca. But he is just so hard to resist! He works at breaking down her walls but she still fears the worst.
The HEAT factor in this little story is off the charts. Luca takes control of her body but is still so caring and nurturing when not in the bedroom. He wants to take care of Mari, to give her everything she wants and needs. And Mari is beginning to regret her decision of only seeing Luca on the weekends! I have to say I am Team Luca all the way. How liberating it would be to find that someone with the same fantasies and kinks as you?
I really enjoyed this scorcher of a story and look forward to seeing what happens to Luca and Mari. I give Birthday Wishes (The List – Book 1) 4/5 stars.
